    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

    Cloudberry Kingdom Review

    Cloudberry Kingdom

    A pleasant addition to any digital library, albeit a slightly overpriced one. As a man who actively supports others who dare to play through a game on... more

    Skylanders: Giants Review

    Skylanders: Giants

    Despite the occasional glimpse of dollar signs in its publisher's eyes, Skylanders Giants is that rarest of beasts: a kids' game that's very, very easy for adults to like. The greatest trick Activision ever pulled was convincing the world that... more

    New Super Luigi U Review

    New Super Luigi U

    Proves just how smart and ahead of the pack Nintendo are with level design and gameplay. There was once a time when Luigi was nothing but a palette swap. In the last... more

    Super Mario Maker Review

    Super Mario Maker

    Super Mario Maker is a fantastic creation tool. Just don't expect it to be much more than that. You are not Shigeru Miyamoto. If for some reason you always wanted proof... 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

    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
