    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

    Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle

    While Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle may have been the crossover that no one wanted, it's materialised as a really good one with some interesting systems, despite its smattering of shortcomings. It shouldn't work, but it does. There’s a number of people who see evil when they look in a Rabbid’s eyes.... more

    FIFA 18

    FIFA 18 is the best FIFA game in years. There are some obvious flaws — some of which are more frustrating than others — but as a complete package, the series is making progress, once again. Just when you think the series attached to football’s governing body can’t... more

    Cuphead

    There's definitely a point where it all becomes a bit too much, but Cuphead will best most games in how it looks and sounds, and defeating that boss that you once deemed unbeatable is glorious. Cuphead is difficult. Phew. I’ve said it — we can all relax now. It’s a game... more

    Dead Cells review

    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

    FIFA 19 review

    FIFA 19

    FIFA 19 is the finest playing game in the series. The Journey may be after running its course, but the fluid representation of football, the added element of Dynamic Tactics, and the madness of the updated Kick Off mode are all wonderful. Tony Britten created magic in 1992 when he composed a three minute anthem... more
