Alex Hamilton's Reviews

After completing a master's degree in ancient history Alex realised he'd actually prefer to write stuff on the internet, and has left a trail of more than 1,000 articles in his wake. A financial reporter by day and PC gaming elitist by night, he loves all things Overwatch and Football Manager.

3.5 / 10.0 - Dynasty Warriors 9
Feb 23, 2018

Everything about this game seems completely rushed. To jump onto the open world bandwagon three or four years too late and still deliver such a pile of garbage isn't just embarrassing, it's insulting.

Where it takes mechanics from others in the industry, it improves upon them; where it introduces new ones, you slap your forehead in amazement that it hasn't been done before. Breath of the Wild is development done right, and damn near the best game you'll play all year.

10 / 10.0 - Super Mario Odyssey
Dec 5, 2017

Super Mario Odyssey is a phenomenal return for Nintendo's mustachioed mascot, and (whisper it) the worthy successor to Super Mario 64 that fans have been longing for.

6 / 10.0 - King Oddball
Dec 4, 2017

If you can look past the missed opportunity that is the lack of motion controls, and the fairly simplistic gameplay, you'll probably find a title that is entertaining in short bursts. Don't expect it to light your world on fire, though.

7.5 / 10.0 - Spellspire
Nov 28, 2017

Spellspire is a game that knows what it is, and doesn't aim for the stars. It's a more than enjoyable experience worth the price tag. Those looking for a fun little game to play during downtime, or even something to distract the kids, can't go far wrong here.

7.5 / 10.0 - Warriors All-Stars
Nov 7, 2017

Warriors All Stars does a fair job of being more than just a tie-in, and brings some genuine innovation to the table. If you ignore the trope-filled storyline and strange setting, it functions as a great stop-gap before the larger release of Dynasty Warriors 9 or as a meaty hack ‘n' slash to get into in short bursts.

5 / 10.0 - Community Inc
Aug 31, 2017

There's a lot to like about Community Inc. Unfortunately there's also a lot to hate.

7.5 / 10.0 - Day of Infamy
Jun 7, 2017

Day of Infamy is not a game that will tear down the hegemony of Battlefield or Call of Duty, but like other realistic shooter out there, it provides an alternative FPS experience.

6.5 / 10.0 - Expeditions: Viking
May 16, 2017

Behind some rage-inducing problems Expeditions: Viking is incredibly good. It enhances everything established in Conquistador and brings the setting to real life. Whether players will want to struggle through a sea of crashes and mistimed saves to experience it all is another factor altogether.

7.5 / 10.0 - Shadows of Adam
May 2, 2017

The game is a fantastic love letter to the genre and offers gamers a trip down memory lane. What will surprise you, though, is how it's so much more than a cash-grab throwback to a bygone era.
