    Balan Wonderworld review

    Balan Wonderworld

    If only Naka, staying true to form, had given the whole thing a dose of high speed; his work holds together only when it hurtles past our eyes, growing vivid with velocity. Balan Wonderworld is the new game from Yuji Naka, not that you would... more

    Contrast Review

    Yooka-Laylee Review


    Yooka-Laylee would fit right into the late 90s with its vague puzzles, wakka-wakka voices, and confusing levels. Time has moved on since the N64, and while there are a handful of bright spots, this sadly isn't the catalyst for a 3D platformer revival. Nostalgia is this weird, immeasurable thing that sees us longing for past... more

    Mighty No. 9 Review

    Mighty No. 9

    Regardless of how much you like the Mega Man series, in Mighty No.9 you're unlikely to find a game that comes close to that legacy. I've played Mega Man, but I've never 'played' Mega Man. It's largely similar... more

    Action Henk Review

    Action Henk

    It's easy to like Action Henk. It does all the basic stuff well: simple to pick up, hard to master, fun, fast, colourful. Yet it feels like a fleeting interest. Action Henk feels like a game I've played before. A million reviews could... more

    Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time review

    Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time

    Faced with a declaration as longing and impatient as “It’s About Time,” I can’t help but think, Is it? What is Crash Bandicoot? Not a bandicoot, evidently. A cursory Google... more

    a boy and his blob Review

    a boy and his blob

    A Boy and His Blob is like a long walk on a Sunday afternoon: There's no rush because the beef's got at least another hour in the oven and the football won't be on for another two. I read Mean Machines. I played Super Mario Bros. 3. I even finished Teenage... more

    de Blob 2: The Underground Review

    de Blob 2: The Underground

    It's children that will inevitably get the most from the experience, but like a Pixar film or any good cartoon, Blue Tongue Entertainment has created a game that appeals on two levels. Thinking about it, I probably should have told somebody I was colour-blind... more

    Sound Shapes Review

    Sound Shapes

    For all the game's ambition, and for all the whimsy and mirth it is so capable of providing, it falls into the same trap as LittleBigPlanet - excruciating platforming. The Vita is an extraordinarily frustrating console. The tech is there. The... more

    Sonic Mania review

    Sonic Mania

    It took two decades and change, but a team of developers has shown they understand what made the old Sonic games great with Sonic Mania, even if nostalgia is sometimes too much of a driving force. Sega had a winning formula with Sonic on the Mega Drive, but decided to... more

    Little Nightmares II review

    Little Nightmares II

    It’s worth pointing out that few other studios have the confidence to take this approach to horror: not to jolt you with sudden frights or to ration your ammunition, but to probe and puncture your emotional ease by putting foulness in such close proximity to the childish. What are these little nightmares? Who is dreaming them up? Given that the... more

    LittleBigPlanet 3 Review

    LittleBigPlanet 3

    LBP3 reaches new highs for the series by delivering some of the best levels and gameplay yet seen, but also disappoints with a fleeting campaign. LittleBigPlanet is a strange beast. I've now finished six games starring... more

    Axiom Verge Review

    Axiom Verge

    Whereas many modern takes on classic retro genres fall foul of style over substance, this has been built with such skill that it doesn't need to rely on our annoying fondness of the past to impress. Confession time: I've never played a 2D Metroid game. I've only even played... more

    Little Nightmares

    Little Nightmares is frightening, in a way that gets under your skin. A way that whispers in your ear that you won't sleep well tonight. Little Nightmares takes things you were afraid of when you were a kid, and reminds you you're still afraid now. Little Nightmares is frightening. Not in a jump scare way, like turning a... more
