    Contrast Review

    Contrast

    A great hook falls foul of terrible bugs, inconsistent mechanics, and woeful performance issues. Wonderful in theory yet terribly flawed in practice, Contrast's waste of... more

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    Ori and the Will of the Wisps review

    Ori and the Will of the Wisps

    In the beauty stakes and beyond, there are very few, in the rarefied realms of indie or AAA, who can challenge it. Beware the cute. The first moments of Ori and the Will of the... more
