There's nothing really different here; no new game modes or anything like that. It's more of the same, so if you liked what you saw first time round, then it's very likely you'll enjoy this too.

Playtonic has absolutely smashed it with Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. It builds on the team's experience with platformers and manages to improve on its predecessor in every way. One of the best platformers I've played in years.

It's a fine line when creating a sequel to such a classic game. Go too modern and you alienate your classic player base, but go too retro and it doesn't appeal to the new generation of gamers. Taito has got the balance spot on here though, and created a Bubble Bobble for 2019 that feels completely right, but without being mere fanservice. It's a brilliant game that all Switch owners ought to get in my opinion.

8.5 / 10.0 - Planet Zoo
Dec 16, 2019

A tremendous game that really pushes the boundaries. Both an excellent educational resource, and a superb time sink. This would be a perfect-scoring title if it wasn't for a few too many bugs and stability issues, but I still recommend it incredibly highly.

9 / 10.0 - Wreckfest
Dec 5, 2019

A perfect continuation of what Bugbear has done previously with the Flatout series. They may no longer hold the license to that IP, but they definitely still have the spirit of it. This is a perfect blend of customisation and carnage, with something for everyone. I can't recommend it enough, and it deserves to be just as popular as the games that came before it.

It's not going to make anybody who didn't already like the game go out and buy it, but it adds to what was already a pretty addictive game. In short, it's the kind of thing that you'll like if you like this kind of thing.

By taking the best bits of a few different genres, Gunfire Games has come up with an exceptional formula here, and brought us the surprise hit of the year. Sure, it'll take you a while to "git gud", but it actually feels like it's worth the practice.

Final Fantasy VIII is still a great game and if you're playing it for the first time, I'd suggest getting this version. If you already have an earlier release however then it's hard to justify the cost. A few graphical tweaks and some blurring isn't worth the money for me: I could get a similar effect by taking off my glasses before playing and save myself 16 quid in the process. A poor remaster of a great game

Poor voice acting notwithstanding, there's a great story to be found in Bear With Me: The Lost Robots, so I still wouldn't hesitate to recommend playing it, and I will continue to play it to completion after this review. It's not the new Monkey Island, but it's still beary enjoyable and has encouraged me to check out the other games in the series. It's got a few rough edges, but nothing too unbearable. It's definitely worth getting your paws on this one and I'd recommend it bear claws I had an ursome experience playing it. One fur the wishlist of anybody who wants a good point-and-click to paws the time.

9 / 10.0 - Blair Witch

In all, Bloober Team has done a great job of capturing the feel and ethos of the film series.
