    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

    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

    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. After the surprise announcement and release of Subsurface Circular, which I... more

    Dragon Ball FighterZ review

    Dragon Ball FighterZ

    More online testing to be done, but so far Dragon Ball FighterZ is indeed pretty... super [pause for riotous applause and laughter] Dragon Ball FighterZ received an almost baffling swell of immediate... more

    The Red Strings Club review

    The Red Strings Club

    A cyberpunk exploration of humanity, manipulation and getting tanked, The Red Strings club is lovely and melancholy and well worth a look. My anticipation for The Red Strings Club went from being aware it was coming... more

    Yakuza 6: The Song of Life review

    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

    Monster Hunter: World review

    Monster Hunter World

    This long standing series makes an outrageously good current gen debut. The size and scope of the environments, and the monsters in them, is awe inspiring, making Monster Hunter: World a true (lizard) king of games.  There will probably, whilst playing Monster Hunter: World, come a moment... more

    Celeste review

    Celeste

    Far Cry 5 review

    Far Cry 5

    In its quieter moments Hope County is a picturesque backdrop to terrific Prepper Stash puzzles, and an over-the-top fantasy playground when the volume is turned up. Taking on Eden's Gate is compelling, horrific, and an awful lot of fun. A good villain must truly believe in what they’re doing;... more

    God of War review

    God of War (PS4)

    God of War achieves a very impressive balance between the epic and the mundane, between the ultra violent and the domestic. It's undoubtedly the coolest and most interesting God of War to date. The setting for God of War (2018 flavour), post Kratos' decimation of... more
