Rob Kershaw's Reviews

Co-founder of Jump Dash Roll. I've been gaming since the days of the Amstrad. Huge RPG fan. Planescape: Torment tops my list, but if a game tells a good story, I'm interested. Absolutely not a fanboy of any specific platform - the proof is in the gaming pudding.

8 / 10 - Wargroove
Feb 12, 2019

Wargroove may wear its influences on its sleeve but it is never in thrall to them — fans of the genre will lap it up like Caesar near a water bowl.

Patience is needed to crack the heart of Rusty Pup, but we suspect it could end up joining the likes of Psychonauts and Conker's Bad Fur Day as a cult classic.

Rules is a backwards step after a strong opening for Life Is Strange 2, feeling more like a filler episode which squanders the momentum of the Diaz boys' story.

9 / 10 - Resident Evil 2
Jan 25, 2019

An unexpected horror delight, Resident Evil 2 is a fantastic example of how to remake a classic while staying faithful to the original.

5 / 10 - Vane
Jan 22, 2019

While visually impressive at times, Vane suffers from an unclear purpose and far too many technical issues to recommend it.

6 / 10 - TSIOQUE
Jan 17, 2019

A pretty but slight tale, hampered by some clumsy interface decisions and a peculiarly meta finale.

Bury Me, My Love is both poignant and prescient — a moving account of the trials of migrants, and a gentle reminder that the constant politicisation of their plight makes it all too easy to forget our own humanity.

7 / 10 - GRIS
Jan 8, 2019

A gorgeous yet ultimately shallow platformer, which tries its best to connect emotionally but disappoints almost as much as it dazzles.

Cosmic Top Secret is let down by rudimentary and frustrating gameplay which stifles some otherwise fine investigative journalism.

5 / 10 - Wordhunters
Dec 20, 2018

Unexciting and uninspired, Wordhunters struggles to bring anything new or fun to the party game genre.

A rushed, muddled, bug-ridden mess of a point-and-click. The Council dropped off a cliff in its penultimate episode and ends with a limp, unsatisfying thud in its finale.

7 / 10 - GODS Remastered
Dec 3, 2018

GODS is a 16-bit classic which might have benefited from more work under the hood in its remaster, but as a faithful update it still delivers the platforming goods.

The Spyro Reignited Trilogy shows others how to layer your nostalgia cake with sparkly icing before wolfing it down — a super remaster of an old favourite.

It may be overly familiar, but Dragon Quest XI is built on strong foundations; newcomers and veterans alike will find a lot to love.

Brutal, bewildering and brilliant, Red Dead Redemption 2 is undoubtedly Rockstar's finest release to date, flaws and all.

Varied and entertaining, The Jackbox Party Pack 5 provides a lot of laughs and surprising depth — you'll return to many of these games over and over again.

7 / 10 - Timespinner
Oct 17, 2018

Displaying a mish-mash of influences, Timespinner's action and controls make up for its occasionally bland time travel story and game features, both of which could have done with a bit more polish. ‍

A unique and charming puzzle game which doesn't outstay its welcome.

Effortlessly balancing the poignant storytelling and realistic characters the series made its name with, Roads is a superb first chapter in a series which keeps growing with confidence.

A bizarre twist in Burning Bridges undoes everything you've achieved so far and reduces both the plot and your investment in The Council to ashes.
