    The Walking Dead: The Final Season review in progress

    The Walking Dead: The Final Season - Episode 1: Done Running

    The Walking Dead: The Final Season is off to a cracking start, thanks to the dynamic relationship between Clem and AJ and some of the strongest dialogue in the series to date. Episode One - Done Running Props to Clementine. Despite everything... more

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance review

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance has some nice ideas and pretty countryside, but is ultimately still buggy, broken and, perhaps worst of all, boring. Reader, I am bored. Because, despite the lead dev having more edge than U2,... more

    Detroit: Become Human review

    Detroit: Become Human

    Detroit: Become Human wants to move you. It wants to elicit an emotional response through its story. The thing is, it really doesn't. The flowchart is a nice inclusion and adds some variance, but when the narrative is as cringey and ham-fisted as it is you won't want to play through it multiple times. Some fiction has the ability to make us look in on ourselves, asking... more

    We Happy Few review

    We Happy Few

    While We Happy Few's story contains some genuinely wonderful twists and turns once it gets going, it's dragged down by frustrating survival systems, shoddy combat, and an empty world. Mashing a myriad of ideas together isn’t always best practice. It can... more

    The Crew 2 review

    The Crew 2

    It’s not bad, but it lacks imagination outside of the singular gimmick that you can change vehicles at any time, and ends up just being rather average. It’s hard to figure out where it all went wrong for society,... more

    Sea of Thieves review

    Sea of Thieves

    Rare's piratical playground looks lovely, but you have to make a bit too much of your own fun. The sound and the fury of the waves is lovely, but for Sea of Thieves to be properly good it needs to give the players more to work with. You will either love Sea of Thieves and have loads of fun with it or... more

    State of Decay 2 review

    State of Decay 2

    State of Decay 2 has some fun additions that can keep things interesting. Just not quite interesting enough (especially when contending with a clutch of performance issues). As themes, both zombies and post-apocalyptic survival have been attempted... more

    The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit

    “As a teaser for Life is Strange 2, Captain Spirit does its job, but here’s hoping there’s more subtlety to the writing for the next big thing from Dontnod” You’d have to really be dead inside to not have felt something for... more

    Kitty Powers' Love Life review

    Kitty Powers' Matchmaker

    Kitty Powers is back, and she's giving you a lot to grab onto. Love Life isn't paced quite as well as Matchmaker, but organising the entire relationship of a town full of couples is a great challenge. Kitty always leaves you wanting more.  In Love Life, as in real life, relationships only grow more complicated with... more

    Fe review

    Fe

    Fe is all very lovely and (literally) harmonious, with fun layers of platforming. Coloured flowers and singing is a nice enough way to spend a rainy afternoon. If you liked the feel of Ori and the Blind Forest – not the way Ori actually... more

    The Thin Silence review

    The Thin Silence

    The Thin Silence has a satisfying, creative approach to puzzle solving, alongside a sad story told in equally sad snippets. Though you can reset puzzles and try again as often as you need, you might sometimes still be left at a loss. There are a lot of platformers in the world and with each new one developed... more

    Quarantine Circular review

    Quarantine Circular

    Quarantine Circular, while lacking the same focus as Subsurface Circular, is another engaging untangling of science fiction concepts with interesting characters, and it leaves you waiting for the next instalment.

    Vampyr review

    Vampyr

    Vampyr serves delicious ladles of angst and drama with a hearty slice of excellent, morally grey choice system that will genuinely surprise you, all wrapped up in a wonderfully gloomy London. It's just a shame the combat turns a bit sour. There are many reasons to enjoy Vampyr, a prominent one being that it is so... more

    State of Mind review

    State of Mind

    The originality of its vision and the thrust of its narrative more than excuse some sci-fi clichés, and you’re left with a breezy adventure game which compels with its ideas, if not always with its play. All is not well in the world of Richard Nolan. He’s just been in a... more

    Tanglewood

    Tanglewood presents you with a beautiful world to platform and puzzle through, and delivers a potent rush of nostalgia, but it's merit is tied inseparably to its hardware, and risks gimmickry. It worked. I knew it would of course, but, cradling the package on the bus... more

    Yakuza 6: Song of Life

    Fighting and exploring is more free than ever, and the story, while wanting in certain areas, introduces a few great characters. Some activities and side missions lack a punch, but how many games do you get to wear a giant orange on your head? Family binds us together. The ones we choose to call brother or sister don’t... more

    Dead Cells

    Dead Cells is, at times, constrained by the genres it so heavily draws from, but its vibrant pixel art, furious combat, and rigorous execution make for a winning formula all its own. The star of Dead Cells is a curious figure. He moves beautifully, like a... more
