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.

7 / 10 - Draugen
Jun 17, 2019

Draugen's story might not meet the quality of its visuals, but it's an engaging few hours nonetheless.

6 / 10 - Observation
Jun 3, 2019

A visually arresting and occasionally gripping sci-fi drama, weighed down by a clunky interface and poor pacing.

Wastelands' thrilling finale means it's a step up from Rules, but it makes a few missteps in its handling of the brothers' relationship to get there.

7 / 10 - Heaven's Vault
May 7, 2019

A markedly different approach to adventure gaming; while it won't be for everyone, Heaven's Vault will undoubtedly attract a cult following.

While Close to the Sun is a visual treat, it isn't quite matched by the game's substance; it dips a toe in the waters of numerous genres but fails to fully commit to one, and ultimately suffers because of it.

8 / 10 - FAR: Lone Sails
Apr 11, 2019

The console port of Okomotive's debut is contemplative, lovely, and over too soon.

Clementine's final season starts out uneven, but the second half provides enough thrills, tension and deliberation to ensure that after seven years The Walking Dead gets a decent farewell.

5 / 10 - The Occupation
Mar 12, 2019

Brilliantly conceived but sloppily executed, The Occupation's potential as an immersive detective sim suffers from too many technical problems to recommend it.

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.
