9 / 10 - Elden Ring
Mar 17, 2022

Elden Ring is Dark Souls done in an accessible way and given the open world afforded to Link in Breath of the Wild. In short, it's fabulous.

A premise that had me at hello, but a game which I couldn't wait to finish. It's a puzzler with high production values but it doesn't hit the right beats and consequently suffers for it.

9 / 10 - Hitman 3
Feb 5, 2021

The perfect sandbox killing game, just with bigger and more varied environments which go in all directions and compel you to play them again, and again.

Eivor is a fun character who provides lots of entertainment as you play through their story. The game is enormous and will keep you entertained for ages, with the content engaging and truly compelling, meaning you'll want just one more quest, one more go.

Transformers: Battlegrounds is a simple and functional tactical combat game starring Optimus Prime and Megatron which is very good. What's very bad is that it looks last-gen, has a jaggedy curve with minimal overall challenge and doesn't shout 'Play me!' too often. If you're ok with that, then you have a few hours of relaxing fun ahead of you.

Sports Interactive has made Football Manager new again, without breaking what already made it so delightful. It's more of the same, only newer.

GRID is a brilliant arcade racer, acing the feel and emotions of driving fast cars fast.

4 / 10 - Erica
Oct 3, 2019

Erica is a novel concept which fails on almost every count, unfortunately, and can't as such be recommended at all.

Sep 3, 2019

Telling Lies is a rich drama told in an inventive and fun way, enabling the player to learn what happened in a personal and unique way.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is a fine example of brutal turn-based combat involving people you love. Get going in the game and you'll struggle to stop.

New Star Manager ups the ante as you step up from footballer to football manager. The football remains great fun but the rest will work for some and not others. The PlayStation version looks, sounds and runs fine but the Switch's stick and touch screen combo would be preferred.

Sekiro is a fascinating, engaging and downright outstanding game which puts too many people off too early to warrant a must-play tag.

The Grand Tour Game doesn't deliver what's needed as an interactive experience and makes you long to watch the show without the irritation of anything else. As an experiment, it provides Amazon with plenty of useful results, all of which indicate something very different is needed to combine TV and gaming media.

A fabulous demonstration of what football management is really like, of which there is no peer. But impenetrable to many and less fun for all, it makes you think of the past too often to ignore.

Ubisoft has delivered a superior RPG and done so by completely revolutionising Assassin's Creed. With Odyssey any fan of RPGs, the Creed, or great games in general will be handsomely rewarded.

Lara is the main reason you'll play this game, and as long as you go into with the right expectations, you won't be disappointed.

The Crew 2 does what it does with solid assuredness. It's just a shame that what it does is so bland and middle of the road.

The experienced driving game devs look to other genres for inspiration and deliver a mash-up which provides a unique, chaotic and downright fun experience for many hours.
