    Yooka-Laylee Review

    Yooka-Laylee

    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

    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

    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

    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

    Another high-quality first-party title for the Wii U. While the rest of the console world busies itself with intensely 'cinematic'... more

    Cuphead review

    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

    Super Meat Boy Review

    Super Meat Boy

    Super Meat Boy is bright, huge, colourful, funny and painfully annoying. Super Meat Boy is one of the reasons I play video games. It's bright, huge,... more

    Ori and the Blind Forest Review

    Ori and the Blind Forest

    The extreme highs carry Ori and the Blind Forest through to greatness if not quite flawlessness. Rarely is a game able to be so devilish in its gameplay yet so touching in its story. My heart was pounding like I'd just ran to catch the last bus home. A... 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 Review

    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

    Celeste

    Super Mario Odyssey review

    Super Mario Odyssey

    It's extraordinary, really, that after all this time a new Mario game can feel as fresh as any that preceded it. Cappy is a revelation, exploring Kingdoms is bliss, and Super Mario Odyssey is a masterpiece. One must evolve to maintain longevity. Nintendo has been mindful of that... more
