8 / 10.0 - Crackdown 3
Feb 14, 2019

My review of Crackdown 3 started with a negative, however much like the game, the further you get into it, the more you’ll begin to understand the point. Crackdown 3 may not be the prettiest game in the world, but the longer I’ve spent with it, the more I’ve come to love it.

To be honest, I quite liked Grand Tour Video Game at first, it seemed like quite a novel idea and to begin with it was quite fun, however, the novelty soon wears off and becomes more monotonous.

6.5 / 10.0 - Darksiders III
Nov 26, 2018

Am I still a massive fan of the Darksiders series and do I think Darksiders 3 is a worthy addition? My answer of course is yes, however, I’m more looking forward to Darksiders 4 to see if the developer learns from its mistakes. Perhaps next time they can spend a bit more money on Quality Assurance too.

Sid Meier's Civilization VI is a fantastic addition to the Nintendo Switch library. It brings one of the best games on PC to Nintendo's handheld with little compromise. Sure there's no online multiplayer and the Rise and Fall expansion is missing, but everything else about the core game is present and correct, especially in that it's as addictive as ever, in fact probably even more so.

The story is a great addition to the main game.

To me, Astro Bot: Rescue Mission is platforming at its finest, it's fun, looks fantastic and is challenging enough to keep you coming back for more. I can't recommend Astro Bot highly enough, I just hope this is the start of more quality content for PlayStation VR.

Life is Strange 2: Episode 1 is all about the story. You shouldn’t really come into this expecting an experience heavy on gameplay, because if you are then it won’t be for you. Episode 1: Roads is a tale of brotherhood and education, with both siblings supporting and growing from each other. This is only the beginning though and based on what’s come so far it’s only going to get a lot better.

Spider-Man on PS4 is an incredible experience, it’s beautiful, packed full of action and tells a wonderful story. Don’t hang around, grab this game today.

With fantastic action on the park and ever improving graphics, it does feel like PES is moving in the right direction. With a few more tweaks to the little things such as menus and team management screens, I see no reason why it can’t upset the big boys and one day become the football game on everyone’s lips. For now though it’s still a work in progress. Much like Steven Gerrard’s Rangers.

7.5 / 10.0 - Donut County
Aug 31, 2018

Donut County is a unique and fun experience. It's fun to play, is well designed and works well, without any major issues. The game costs half the price on iPad, but if you are a trophy hunter you'll likely feel £9.99 is still a fair price for all the game has to offer.

9 / 10.0 - Overcooked 2
Aug 6, 2018

There aren’t many great couch co-op games but Overcooked 2 is certainly one of them. Sure it may cause a few arguments and have you tearing your hair out at your fellow chef’s incompetence, but you’ll have so much fun playing this game you’ll never want to leave the kitchen. Buy it now, or forever regret it.

8 / 10.0 - Mugsters
Jul 16, 2018

Whether you are playing alone or with a friend, you’ll find a Mugsters to be a challenging and fun game. It looks fantastic and can be quite tricky at times but it has that ‘just one more go feel’ which will always have you coming back for more.

8 / 10.0 - Esper 2 (VR)
Jul 4, 2018

Esper may only be around two hours long, but it feels perfect for PlayStation VR. It’s tricky, but at the same time a lot of fun too. It also looks fantastic and works perfectly with either the DualShock 4 or PlayStation Move controller. It’s fair to say if you are looking for a puzzler on PlayStation VR then you won’t go wrong with Esper.

The demo may only take a few hours to complete everything there is to see, but The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is a fantastic introduction to Life is Strange 2. Thanks to new mechanics and abilities It changes the way you approach the game and I have a feeling the best is yet to come. Either way, we know now we’ll be hearing more from Chris and Captain Spirit and that can only be a good thing.

6.5 / 10.0 - LEGO The Incredibles
Jun 20, 2018

LEGO Incredibles certainly has its charms, but it just doesn’t hit the heights of some of the best LEGO games out there. It falls short with the length of its campaign and the lack of characters, but perhaps that more down to the franchise this game is based on rather than there being a lack of ideas.

8.5 / 10.0 - Kona
Jun 19, 2018

I'm very conscious of spoiling anything should you decide to hit the buy button on the PlayStation Store, but I can say without question that I highly recommend you giving Kona a chance should you own a PSVR. I'm not sure how it plays without the headset, but with it, this is one of the best experiences I've enjoyed to date.

8 / 10.0 - Vampyr
Jun 4, 2018

Vampyr is a game which has certainly surprised me and I’ve really enjoyed my time with it. The RPG elements, player choice and combat all seem to compliment each other perfectly, which in turn makes for a very good game.

The Swords of Ditto is a fantastic game and given the low price, I cannot recommend it highly enough. There’s so much charm to the design and so much fun to be had out of the gameplay, that you’ll be thinking about it even when you are not playing. The Swords of Ditto is yet another example of what a smaller developer can bring to the world of console gaming. It’s an experience which is not to be missed.
