I write about video games, I live in beautifully sunny South Africa, my cats are delightful conversationalists and I'm current;y obsessed with collecting Combiner Wars Transformers. Life is fantastic right now!

For a budget title, it has a decent amount of depth to it, but don't expect it to be anything more beyond what you see on your TV screen as you get a little red on you.

It's those very hard choices which form the true spine of Enemy Within's storyline.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar is as deep as it is gorgeous. I can't wait to jump back in for some more action this week.

3 / 10.0 - WWE 2K20
Nov 5, 2019

For a time, it looked 2K had finally found their groove with the release of WWE 2K19. WWE 2K20 takes all that goodwill and pisses it away, constructing the shoddiest backyard ring possible and filling it with a broken product, busted progression systems and an overall presentation that makes WWE 2K20 the worst there was, the worst there is and the worst that ever will be.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan's greatest sin isn't that it's a bad game that feels like the result of minimum effort. It's that it takes a great concept, and makes it unrelentingly boring in every way possible.

4 / 10.0 - MXGP Pro

Forgettable, drab and middling to the extreme, MXGP Pro is an unfinished two wheel disaster.

4.5 / 10.0 - Balan Wonderworld
Apr 8, 2021

Balan Wonderworld is a game of missed opportunities. It's simplified control scheme robs it of any of the subtle complexity that the genre is best at, its various ideas are half-baked at best, and its core gameplay is a taxing uphill climb through even the most basic of platforming principles. Amusing visual design aside, the only thing that Balan Wonderworld is good at is being consistently boring.

4.5 / 10.0 - V-Rally 4
Oct 2, 2018

In a genre that has its fair share of challengers, V Rally 4 comes in dead last thanks to its bipolar handling, meagre selection of tracks and a modest grab bag of disciplines that fails to excite any fan of dirty racing.

4.5 / 10.0 - Extinction
Apr 10, 2018

Extinction is a fantastic idea buried in mediocrity. It's one trick is stunning for a short while, but quickly runs out of steam as repetition, flimsy combat and a glib story cuts it down to size.

Over the years, Spider-Man has been amazing, sensational, spectacular and superior. This year, he's just plain terrible.
