5 / 10.0 - The Room
Jan 1, 2019

A great game, but with no value added it isn't worth buying over the mobile version. Too expensive for a game that's best played on a mobile screen anyway.

8 / 10.0 - Strange Brigade
Nov 25, 2018

Just like the first part of the trilogy, this doesn't change things up too much, rather it's just another level in a similar style to before with a few bells and whistles added. By this point, you'll already know if you do or don't like Strange Brigade. This isn't going to win over any new fans but If you don't need winning over, you most likely already have this or you probably want to go get it.

There's a huge amount of fun to be had here, but it's not a game that will appeal to those in the market for a realistic depiction of the joys of the internal combustion engine. Realism has been traded for pure insanity, so if you prefer something more like Forza or Gran Turismo then this won't be the game for you. If you were a fan of Rollcage, then you'll love this.

If you haven't already played the game, then there's not that much here that will make you rush out and get it, but for £7.99, nobody was really expecting that. If, like me, you really enjoyed the old-school romp as it was initially conceived, then this is more of the same with a little garnish to boot.

9 / 10.0 - Freedom Planet
Sep 27, 2018

This is clearly a game that takes its inspiration seriously, and is a lovingly-crafted tribute to a genre of games that a lot of people, are really fond of. No new additions compared to previous releases, but if you haven't already played this then don't hesitate to pick it up on the eStore.

7 / 10.0 - Graveyard Keeper
Sep 14, 2018

A solid and fun little farming type sim, but one that has a few issues. Although it's a bit rough around the edges, it's still worth a look.

6 / 10.0 - Not Tonight
Sep 11, 2018

Papers, Please in Brexit Britain, but at a higher price and not as fun. Feels like an opportunity wasted

9 / 10.0 - Strange Brigade
Sep 10, 2018

I wasn't expecting a huge amount from Strange Brigade, but what I got was a really enjoyable experience both offline and online. This was a pleasant surprise, as generally I'm not someone who would usually play online if I can avoid it. The fact that even I preferred playing online speaks volumes about Rebellion's efforts in making a game that's best played in co-op. There are a few things that could have been done better, but nothing that can't be overlooked. This is one of my favourite multiplayer games in a very long time.

This is a charming little interactive story that warms the heart even if it doesn't necessarily challenge the brain. If you like your games to be story driven with characters you'll end up caring about, this is a must-have.

9 / 10.0 - TANGLEWOOD
Aug 25, 2018

Overall, whilst Tanglewood has a few minor niggles, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it as a must-have title on either the Mega Drive or Steam. It's cute, colourful and great fun. It's also a great achievement and testament to the dedication Big Evil Corp have put into authenticity.

I might not have had the same amount of enjoyment from this add-on as I did from the main game, but I would still recommend picking it up, especially as the season pass will net you this, a new glove skin, and a second puzzle pack at a later date.

9 / 10.0 - FRAMED Collection
Aug 5, 2018

A great little pair of puzzle games here. Nothing new for owners of the iOS and Android versions, but if you don't already have them, this is definitely worth a play.

Playing this game is like playing four different games of varying quality. If they'd just stuck to one idea and executed it well, this could have been a winner. As it is, sadly this is a game which is a jack of all trades but master of none.

3 / 10.0 - Bouncy Bob
Jul 13, 2018

I can't think of a single redeeming feature about this game. It's about as entertaining as a night out in Milton Keynes. Poor controls, lazy graphics, very little gameplay and everything is just a long, drawn out frustratio

I can't stress enough how much I enjoyed Ni no Kuni II. It's one of the best JRPGs in years and it's a must-buy for fans of the genre. It's cute, thoroughly addictive and has more tweaks and statistics than you can shake a sword at. If you enjoyed the first game, you will love this.

9 / 10.0 - Q.U.B.E. 2
Apr 6, 2018

With an increase in scope and improvements in every area, Q.U.B.E. 2 shows that Toxic Games have learnt from their experience and are doing a great job. This is an excellent title that is even better than the great game that it follows on from.

Repetitive gameplay, poor graphics and not a lot of fun. Not worth recommending I'm afraid.

They say that love can build a bridge, but love isn't GlaDOS' style, so you'll have to make do with girders and cables instead. Frustratingly difficult in parts, but a game that you'll keep coming back to until you master it.

With an awkward difficulty curve and some questionable sonic choices, this isn't a purrfect platformer, but it's certainly good enough for meow. I'm not kitten around when I say this is a competent platformer that deserves a look in if you can get it fur a decent price.

TL:DR Version - Wolfenstein II does a brilliant job of mixing social commentary with unnecessary violence and a tongue-in-cheek attitude. There's a few optimisation issues and the level design could be a touch better, but this is an overall outstanding game that deserves a look.
