Peter Taylor's Reviews

I'm a thirty-something dad who works in IT with a sideline in gaming reviews. I mostly review XBox One and Mac games for The Digital Fix and Digital Chumps.

Whilst it may not challenge Mario Kart as the king of arcade kart racing, Team Sonic Racing's twist on the genre makes it distinctive enough to discourage comparisons to Nintendo's classic.

8 / 10 - OTTTD
May 27, 2019

OTTTD is a great example of taking a straightforward type of genre like tower defense and adding just enough of a twist to it to make it stand out. Whilst the lack of touch controls limit its fluidity on such a mobile platform, its bite-sized nature suits the Switch perfectly.

7 / 10 - Snooker 19
May 15, 2019

Snooker 19 has its shortcomings but none of them take enough away from making it a must for any avid snooker fan wishing to dream of making an appearance at the Crucible. Lab42 has started the frame off strongly and hopefully this is the start of a bright, snooker-filled future.

6 / 10 - Xenon Racer
Apr 24, 2019

Xenon Racer wants to become this generation's Ridge Racer. Unfortunately it can't quite get the formula right and thanks to some rather annoying niggles lacks the fun-factor that made Ridge Racer what it was.

Both expansions add new challenges and illnesses to keep fans of Two Point Hospital going for a good while yet. Of the two, Pebberley Island brings in some unique hooks and the last level horde mode of that expansion is quite the test of our management skills.

6 / 10 - Anthem
Mar 6, 2019

We hoped beyond hope that Anthem would show the world just how sci-fi online action role-playing games were done. What we got, however, was far from that and without some serious improvement, Anthem could take Mass Effect: Andromeda's crown as BioWare's worst ever release.

9 / 10 - Apex Legends
Feb 14, 2019

Apex Legends lays down the gauntlet to established Battle Royale games such as Fortnite and PUBG. The ping system alone is worth its weight in gold and allows for the more reserved gamers amongst us to join in and have fun. Loot boxes aside, Apex Legends is fast, fun and buttery smooth to play.

Hitman HD Enhanced collection bring back one of the series' stellar entries in Hitman: Blood Money and to some, its polar opposite, in Hitman: Absolution. The pack is a great pick up if you're new to the series but some rose-tinted glasses are required for those who've played them before.

7 / 10.0 - Dirt Rally 2.0
Jan 25, 2019

Dirt Rally 2.0 is a very competent rally simulator when viewed in isolation. However, when compared to its predecessor and its vastly superior force feedback implementation it loses its allure.

The developers of Jagged Alliance: Rage! likely hoped it would rejuvenate the franchise and it might. It's a competent turn-based tactical shooter but suffers from repetitive missions and sluggish controls. Unless you're a huge fan of the genre you're unlikely to find the gameplay rewarding.

7 / 10 - Ride 3
Dec 19, 2018

Ride 3 pushes the series ever onwards and whilst it's mostly unremarkable it should be lauded for providing bike enthusiasts the world over with their Forza equivalent.

5 / 10 - Fallout 76
Dec 5, 2018

Hidden beneath the bugs and the controversy lies a game with great potential. As it stands, Fallout 76 is an okay multiplayer survival game that needs some serious work.

Diablo 3 makes its way to Nintendo's diminutive console and it's a perfect match. Now you can turn your commute into a demon-smashing extravaganza.

9 / 10.0 - F1 2019
Nov 5, 2018

F1 2019 is a fantastic racing title whether you're a fan of the sport or not. Despite my reservations and perceived lack of improvements I've been proven wrong at almost every turn. Codemasters have done the licence and series proud and look forward now to next year's edition and what it might bring especially with new consoles on the horizon.

Football Manager 2019 takes the series to a whole new level and finally brings in some long needed refreshment. What we have is easily the most accessible Football Manager in recent memory but one that can still many moons to master.

9 / 10 - Forza Horizon 4
Oct 21, 2018

Fast cars, twisty roads and more fun and challenges than you can shake a stick at. If you get bored playing Forza Horizon 4 then clearly you've not spent enough time going sideways.

Cities Skylines: Switch Edition is a serviceable city builder for Nintendo's portable wonder. However its graphical sluggishness, imprecise controls and lack of scenarios to complete dampens things somewhat.

PES 2019 excels when it's left to do what matters most in a football title — simulating the beautiful game. Outside of that, its rough edges are starting to show, but for many that simply doesn't matter.

Two Point Hospital takes the mantra "if ain't broke don't fix it" to heart. This spiritual successor to Theme Hospital does enough to differentiate itself from the original but stays true to its core concept.
