Jim Hargreaves's Reviews

Senior Editor at TheSixthAxis with a journalism degree and almost a decade of professional writing experience under the belt. Friendlier than my reviews often portray though admittedly hard to please. Will play just about anything though mainly lean towards online shooters and western RPGs.

Long after Nathan Drake hung up his holster for the last time a half decade ago, Uncharted’s legacy still remains. This collection crams two genre-defining prestige hits together – the kind of linear AAA action games we rarely see today.

Touted as a seafaring Stardew Valley, Stranded Sails combines farming, exploration, and survival in a neat yet flawed package. It’s fun and rewarding in parts but doesn’t hold a light to Stardew or Harvest Moon in terms of charm or depth.

For a sports title that strives to be adventurous, Steep's year-old snowboarding gameplay is starting to feel somewhat limited. Pulling off a sick combo still feels satisfying (as does racing down the slopes at breakneck speeds) but there's a sense of repetition there.

If you've been dying to play The Sims 4 but don't have a PC that's up to the task, this is the perfect solution. It definitely feels different on consoles, losing some of its fluidity through the gamepad, but there's nothing else like it on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Deep into yet another playthrough, I'm eager to explore Skyrim now than I have ever been before. Bethesda has proven yet again that there's still more life in its fantasy flagship. More importantly, it's proven that traditional games, no matter how big, can work in VR.

Banned Footage Vol. 2 is just as experimental as it is optional. Although Daughters gives some much-needed context to the game's backstory, nothing here is a must-see.

Overall, it's a great expansion and one that doesn't feel needlessly bloated, concentrated within a single area while adding new features elsewhere. However, if The Elder Scrolls Online hasn't already won you over, Morrowind isn't likely to tip you over the edge.

Capcom’s first stab at supporting Resi 7 post-launch is surprisingly diverse and easily worth the price of entry for anyone that enjoyed the core game. It’s clear that a lot of thought and consideration went into each individual part, instead of Capcom simply reworking Resident Evil 7 just enough to make its DLC feel fresh. With more banned footage in the pipeline for the middle of February, it will be interesting to see what new ideas they come up with in the next volume.

If the rebels succeed, their next task is to simply capture one of two control points. Basic stuff, really, and with another successful objective under their belt, they’ll have to carry flag-like objectives to an extraction zone to seal the deal. With three flags constantly active, there’s pressures on both the attackers and defenders to mark each route and push back the opposing team.

If Ghost Town were to add a new recipe or some kind of advanced mechanic to spice things up, then the added expense may be somewhat justified. As it stands, The Lost Morsel is less of a full course than it is a mouthful, though one that succeeds in reminding us just how great Overcooked is.

Naturally, being the last episode in the series, The Good Knight is poised around this theme. Since the start of the series many months ago, Gram has been bedridden, recounting his marvellous adventures in the presence of Gwendolyn, his granddaughter. It’s only when we snap back to the king’s bedchamber that we’re reminded he doesn’t have much time left.

It’s still excellently well-paced and doesn’t linger in one spot for too long, wedging various set pieces between the usual corridor shootouts.

All in all, there’s some clever refinements and additions to the original game. The things that worked before remain unspoiled while a few blemishes also remain.

Beneath its patchwork of puns, King’s Quest has a strong and loving message, galvanised by the presence of two intertwining storylines. Each adventure is being retold by a much older King Graham, recounting every major event in his life as his granddaughter, Gwendolyn, hangs on every word.

Although I won’t be making too many return visits, the incentive is still there to dive straight back in.

It’s far from being the crown jewel in this triumphant reboot, yet manages to pack in loads of fun things to see and do.

DICE has done a fantastic job in capturing the cloud city’s beautiful aesthetic across its five maps. While only two or three of them stand-out, they add some much needed diversity to the current stock.

Upon fleeing the smoking ruins of Helgen, you’re treated to a breathtaking view of Skyrim once more and from that moment you’re inexorably sucked into a world that refuses to let go.

Whatever excitement I have is matched by an immediate sense of bewilderment as I prepare to memorise everything around me, knowing it will be another few hours before I can walk away truly satisfied with my in-game performance.
