85 / 100 - Axiom Verge
May 13, 2015

A massive, challenging retro-flavoured shooter that takes the Metroid formula and runs with it. Old school, but with a modern edge.

An old school point-and-click adventure with a captivating story, strong characters, and a rich, well-realised sci-fi setting.

May 28, 2015

An elegant, pared-down stealth game with echoes of the original Deus Ex, driven by a compelling story of paranoia and betrayal.

An open-world samurai adventure with an interesting structure and a lot of personality that is, unfortunately, not very good.

Satisfyingly freeform missions and rich systems to play with, set in one of the prettiest cyberpunk cities on PC.

More of the same, but with an increased focus on combat and dungeons. If that appeals, The White March may be worth a visit.

Sep 21, 2015

A masterpiece of audio and visual design, SOMA is atmospheric, cerebral, and occasionally frustrating.

A beautiful adventure with heart, humour, and satisfying hacking puzzles you can enjoy even if you don't know anything about coding.

Massive, intimidating, and stunningly beautiful, Elite: Dangerous is one of the deepest, most rewarding open-world experiences you can have on Xbox One.

An entertaining superhero power fantasy, let down by awful Batmobile combat, a laughable villain, and serious performance issues.

Brilliantly captures the look and feel of classic Star Wars, but beneath its cinematic flair lies a pretty generic multiplayer shooter.

Nov 30, 2015

The explosions are amazing, and it's fun in short bursts, but Just Cause 3 is ultimately an unremarkable, shallow experience.

A beautiful remaster of a game that tries to recreate the magic of the original Resident Evil, but repeatedly fails to do so.

A great start, but American Truck Simulator will really begin to take shape when more states and trucks are added.

85 / 100 - Firewatch
Feb 8, 2016

A captivating journey into a beautiful, atmospheric wilderness, with a touching story that doesn't always hit the right notes.

A brilliantly funny, disturbing, and entertaining visual novel, but the lack of interaction won't appeal to everyone.

It’s amazing how neatly the Far Cry formula fits into such a wildly different setting.

Mar 10, 2016

An imaginative, atmospheric setting with great art and quality voice acting, but Shardlight is by no means a great adventure game.
