3.1 / 5.0 - State of Mind
Aug 28, 2018

Like a sitcom with the occasional bad episode, instead of keenly anticipating what I'll uncover next in the story, I began to just long for the finale.

4.4 / 5.0 - Onrush
Jun 20, 2018

Altogether, Onrush is like a breath of fresh air. It's fast, frenzied and above all else, fun. If you're looking for something a little different to add to your game library, then you could do a lot worse than this.

So is Space Hulk: Deathwing Enhanced Edition worth your time? Well, no. Not really. It isn't awful, but it isn't exactly great either. If you're mad for Warhammer 40,000 and the lore surrounding the franchise then perhaps you'll get more out of Space Hulk than I did. However, if you're looking to freshen up your first-person shooter collection then feel free to skip this one.

1.6 / 5.0 - Extinction
May 1, 2018

Perhaps this review seems a little harsh but please bear in mind that Extinction is a terrible game that is retailing close to one hundred dollars. That is, without question, day-light robbery. This mess isn't even worth close to half of that, in fact, I wouldn't even recommend playing it for free. Sure, there are worse games out there, but how anyone in good conscience could greenlight Extinction's release at the price of a Triple-A game is insulting.

4.6 / 5.0 - God of War
Apr 15, 2018

After spending over twenty hours with the game, it's clear that God of War is an impressive action-adventure title that should appease a variety of different gamers. However, once all the dust settles, whether or not this will land Sony Santa Monica the prestigious ‘Game of the Year' honour remains to be seen.

Introducing a third-person shooter into the Sword Art Online universe means Fatal Bullet isn't your typical fantasy game. Thanks to the Unreal Engine 4; it has some polish, but uninspiring environments and generic gameplay mean that only hardcore fans of the SAO series will get the most out of Bandai Namco's latest effort.

2.4 / 5.0 - Metal Gear Survive
Mar 3, 2018

Baffling AI behaviour, dull environments and a stupid story mean that even as a standalone survival game, Metal Gear Survive fails on too many levels. There are far better games that deserve your money. For example, if you want a complete survival experience, then ARK: Survival Evolve or 7 days to Die are better options on the PS4.

Predominantly, what I take from my experience with Dragon Ball FighterZ is a new found appreciation for the fighting genre. Aside from the classics like Mortal Kombat, I was never a huge fan of games of this ilk. However, I can honestly say that this frantic 2-D fighter is so captivating, that I can see myself spending a hell of a lot of time with it in the upcoming months.

On paper at least, Shadow of the Colossus' premise is one of standard fantasy lore. The story of slaying beasts to save a loved one isn't unique, but what sets this experience apart from other fantasy tales I've experienced is the forever growing sadness that overcame me as I cut down each creature.

Overall, Football Manager 2018 is as addictive as ever; packed with a plethora of options and tactics to choose from, it immerses you into the world of football management like never before. Quite simply, unless you're up to date with your coaching badges, Sports Interactive's latest effort is the closest you'll get to becoming a managerial messiah. So, if you're passionate about football and you fancy yourself as a bit of a José Mourinho, then Football Manager 2018 is an essential purchase.
