Geoffrey Tim's Reviews

One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is a fiendishly difficult platformer that carries on Crash's legacy with aplomb. Though it sometimes feels like it hews a little too closely to the established formula, what it adds makes it more than just a worthwhile sequel. It's just a damn good game.

7.5 / 10.0 - Budget Cuts (VR)
Oct 5, 2020

Budget Cuts remains a sometimes frustrating, but worthwhile delight to play. It's one of the finest things available on PSVR right now, and those toting Sony's headset should add it to their collections. Blending stealth, action, and deep immersion, Budget Cuts remains one of the best examples of "proper games" on VR.

Virtuous has done a fine job in bringing Bioshock to the Switch, delivering a trio of intriguing games from the last generation. Performance is solid and stable, they look fantastic and they're still worth playing today.

A competent remaster that gives a decade-old game a suitable level of spit-and-polish, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's campaign reveals a significant graphical overhaul but its corridor-shooter structure and worn animation give its age away. Nostalgic fans of the series might get a kick, but the barebones remaster isn't a fantastic value proposition for anybody else.

8 / 10.0 - Paper Beast
Mar 30, 2020

Paper Beast is a unique look at a reactive living world. It's a game that makes you feel like you're exploring an alien habitat through the lens of an interactive nature documentary. It's filled with (occasionally obtuse) natural, organic environmental puzzles. A personal and contemplative experience, Paper Beast could only be better if it were narrated by Sir David Attenborough.

Very nearly everything that's been released for Street Fighter V in the last four years is part of the Champion Edition upgrade. That's 40 characters, 34 stages and over 200 costumes included in a bargain-priced package. With the massive roster and the addition of secondary V-skills adding even more variety, this is the game Street Fighter V was always meant to be.

Patapon 2 Remastered suffers from the same poor quality video as other PSP remasters, but maintains the delightfully charming gameplay. The original wasn't the most ambitious sequel and while it lacks the freshness of the first game, it makes up for that with both increased width and depth.

CI Games has taken its lessons learned from the past and given Sniper Ghost Warrior a Hitman-inspired makeover. With improved sniping mechanics, and focus on replayable, open-ended sandboxes, Contracts is thrilling and tense - while nailing that perfect shot is endlessly rewarding.

4.5 / 10.0 - Bee Simulator
Nov 15, 2019

Bee Simulator is more of a kids action game than it is a simulator. While it has an undeniable charm, it's short, repetitive to a fault and feels like it's been hastily cobbled together.

There's not much in the way of new content, but Red Dead Redemption 2 is undoubtedly best played on PC. With scalable graphics options for future PC tech, improved input latency and an already burgeoning modding scene, Red Dead Redemption will continue to shine on the platform for years.
