Review: Absolver

Absolver is full of crumbling buildings and eager combatants. There's little in its world that speaks of hope. Any sign of progress, of rebuilding and moving forward, is buried under the rubble of a society that's already forgotten. The onl...

Review: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Pirate Queen's Quest

Very few games make me smile while playing. I always find gaming pretty intense, even when having fun. But boy, do I grin like a dang fool when playing the Shantae series. I love the colours, the characters, the world, the adventures and th...

Review: Warriors All-Stars

It's about time Koei Tecmo allowed its absurd stable of characters to meet each other. We've had mild crossovers in the past as well as some light meetings and partings, but nothing like Warriors All-Stars. Before you roll your ey...

Review: Sine Mora EX

Sine Mora was a celebrated shmup that came blasting out of a partnership between Hungarian studio Digital Realty and Japanese outfit Grasshopper Manufacture way back in 2012. It received praise at the time for its visuals and gameplay whils...

Review: Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

From the very start, the Uncharted series has been intrinsically linked to Nathan Drake. His wisecracking Indiana Jones quips have won the world over, catapulting Nolan North into stardom and forcing all sorts of rewrites and recasts f...

Review: Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition

I remember the Video Game Violence senate hearings like they were yesterday. Who knew that my bright pink Lethal Enforcers light-gun would turn me into a raging psychopath? Or that the clunky Mega Drive port of Mortal Kombat was such a thre...

Review: Agents of Mayhem

Volition took Saints Row in such a nuttier direction than anyone could have predicted. But after ruling Stilwater, taking out the military in Steelport, being trapped in a virtual world and fighting aliens, and literally going to Hell, sure...

Review: Matterfall

It's hard to believe that Housemarque has been around since 1995. Having undergone two studio name changes, they've developed a number of low-key games over the years, but managed to strike gold back in 2007 with Super Stardust HD (itself a...

Review: Sonic Mania

What can you say about Sonic that hasn't already been said? He's had his ups and downs, and while he started very high up, he's sunk really far down over the past decade or so and even kissed a human girl. Oh, and he's shown up to race...

Review: LawBreakers

It's great to see so many shooters making their mark on the industry again. I mean, they never really left, because right after Unreal Tournament stopped being relevant Halo roared onto the scene, but as a general rule there was o...

Review: Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

It's always tough to review a Ninja Theory game. They breathe a certain spark of life into their projects that practically no one studio can replicate. Yet, they insist on crafting relatively simplistic action sequences that detract from mu...

Early Access Review: Fortnite

Did you know that 2011 was six years ago? It was quite a year for gaming. Big games such as Skyrim and Portal 2 came out and made it onto many people’s game of the year lists. It's also when Duke Nukem Forever finally released af...

Review: Batman - The Enemy Within: The Enigma

I have always loved playing as The Bat. The Dark Knight lends himself well to video games, despite the fact he has starred in so many terrible ones. Recent years have been kinder to the character, however, as developers have finally nailed ...

Review: Sundered

A young wanderer, Eshe, battles through a violent desert sandstorm. Just moments before reaching shelter, tendrils slither out of the sand and wrap around her limbs, pulling her under as she fights to stay above ground. Eshe re-awakens i...

Review: Nioh: Defiant Honor

Nioh pretty much knocked it out of the park already, but a string of DLC and free updates have bolstered its lifespan for those of you who aren't into grinding for loot and stats to take on those New Game+ challenges. Both add-ons haven't r...

Review: Pyre

Adventure stories sprinkled with apocalyptic hope, enveloped in beautiful art and music with an innovative gameplay element...a recipe that Supergiant Games is known for cooking, and its third game Pyre is no exception. Don’t get me w...

Warming up to Sub-Zero in Injustice 2

I hated Sub-Zero in Mortal Kombat X and dreaded his arrival in Injustice 2. His combination of clones and unrelenting pressure made him a nightmare to deal with in MKX. He was a sadist, a bully who would trap you in the corner and keep you ...

Review: Get Even

Get Even starts with main protagonist Cole Black trying to save the life of a teenage girl named Grace. Black knows nothing about who he is or where he's at or even why he's trying to save her. Captors have taken her hostage and strapped a ...

Review: Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

When Final Fantasy XII came out, I witnessed an interesting perspective in regards to initial praise -- the MMO crowd loved it, given that it takes multiple cues from the online-only Final Fantasy XI. It was a triumph in many ways with its ...

Review: Elite Dangerous

The other day my son came downstairs long after bedtime. He didn’t want a drink of water or another story; he heard me jumping into hyperspace and wanted to watch. At three he is already a space nut who can name every planet in our so...

Review: Micro Machines World Series

Micro Machines World Series wants to be Overwatch. It's an odd fit for a top-down racer to draw inspiration from a hero shooter, but that's what World Series does. The influence is immediately apparent -- from the different classe...
