    Gato Roboto review

    Gato Roboto

    While the rewards in hidden areas aren't as satisfying as you might expect from a game like this, Gato Roboto's tense, creative boss battles with a talking rodent are an absolute delight. One shot from an aggressive armadillo or a determined pufferfish and the... more

    Doom 3

    Doom 3 provides a gaming experience not found very often in today's games. Simplicity can sometimes be a good thing. Games today are pretty complicated beasts. The first person genre has been... more

    Enter the Gungeon

    Furi Review

    Furi

    Furi is an interesting game, if not an essential one. When it works it nails that moreish blend of challenge and reward. However it's easy to find yourself being frustrated. In Furi you fight bosses. You also wander about through some pretty... more

    Guacamelee 2 review

    Guacamelee! 2

    While its impact isn't as great as the original, Guacamelee 2 is a reminder of how good combat and traversal can feel when married together as they are in this 2D platformer-cum-brawler. More respected than El Santo, and more influential than Mil... more

    Blasphemous review

    Blasphemous

    A formulaic Metroidvania with satisfying combat and a thick mood in the air, Blasphemous uses its pixel art style and fixation on religious iconography to establish a powerful vision of a forsaken world. The hero of Blasphemous is called The Penitent One. He wears a cone-shaped... more

    Carrion review

    Carrion

    Carrion abounds with the thrills of being the monster, then, but, less common and more cosy, with the kick of being in a monster movie—of slithering in celebration over the tropes of the genre. The good news is that, for a while, it works. Carrion opens on a glass tank. A blood-red lump lurks inside,... more

    Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time review

    Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time

    What’s on offer here is a version of what would only have been available, back then, from a top-flight studio; a haven for those who crave a hit of Tartakovsky; and a hack-and-slash hardly ahead of the curve but happy to polish the past. How do you battle an ancient demon that can take any form, dripping and... more

    Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath

    Rogue Trooper

    The Sexy Brutale Review

    The Sexy Brutale

    The secret stories Father Lafcadio uncovers are lovely, but you won't always enjoy the process of uncovering them. Still, a series of elegant murders, with elegant stories, in an elegant mansion is enough to show anyone a good time. Time and time again... Lafcadio Boone is a mysterious man. He's trapped playing out the same 12... more

    Bayonetta 2 is a system seller. It's a Nintendo-published game that is rarely seen, and a game that will legitimately make non-Wii U owners jealous. I don't think I enjoy Bayonetta, and its sequel, for the reasons gaming's... more
