Imagine Contra meets Kid Chameleon via Super Meat Boy, with a touch of Sensible Software's irreverence, and you're there. One the most enjoyable couch multiplayer games I've played in quite a while.
Not the disaster many had anticipated, but also fundamentally flawed.
Changing aesthetic from 'Dry Urban Dilapidation Chic' to 'Irradiated Sea Fog Realness' is refreshing.
Shadow of the Beast is enjoyable, its combat smooth and rewarding, but high-score chasing isn't going to keep many players around for long once the credits roll.
DOOM is an excellent and exceptionally fun first first-person shooter. That's all you need to know.
A confident, assured sequel, and a strong end to the series.
A superb second instalment, and one which shows off Hitman's greatest strengths.
Star Fox Zero is worthy of the name, but a few inconsistencies stop it from hitting the highs it otherwise may well have achieved.
Ratchet & Clank is a gorgeous remake done right in a series that rarely puts a foot wrong. Easily recommended.
Dark Souls 3 relies too much on former glories to reach the heights of Bloodborne or the original Dark Souls, but that doesn't stop it being another superb adventure.
