An immersive survival game with a unique premise and great presentation, but suffers from longevity and gameplay niggles.

Unscored - The Sexy Brutale
Oct 4, 2017

There is definitely some wasted potential, but The Sexy Brutale is a solid, original and fun game that's definitely worth your time.

As stealth games go, Shadow Tactics is one of the best I have ever played - and certainly the purest

There isn't much new on show here, but fans won't really mind - it's an entertaining romp through the Queen Zenobia emulating the heydays of the series. When you're low on ammo and out of herbs, dreading ambushes at every corner, you're reminded what made Resident Evil so good in the first place.

Unscored - The Long Dark
Sep 22, 2017

The Long Dark is a triumph. At times it may feel a little grindy, but there's always a level of tension thanks to its finely tuned systems never letting you get complacent.

Although Hellblade has to be commended for its superb presentation and its tackling of the subject matter, it's ultimately let down by its gameplay and structure. It's definitely a game I feel everyone should experience, the voices and visuals alone make it worth playing. But in the end, it falls short of greatness, an excellent shell around a fairly hollow interior.

A deep, challenging adventure that will test your skills to the limit, but is full of wonder and personal triumph. Fans of previous Dark Souls may feel a little let down by the familiarity and callbacks, but as a stand-alone game, this is a fantastic experience.

A faithful return to The Walking Dead story, with a good cast of new characters and plenty of hard-hitting and emotional moments. The plot and gameplay though are starting to feel stale, with no innovation to speak of.

A double-whammy of madcap murder mysteries with compelling twisting stories and complex whodunnits with an over-the-top presentation. Danganronpa 1-2 Reload's memorable cast and great writing bring genuine laughs in a thoroughly entertaining game.

- Prey
Jun 6, 2017

A highly polished immersive sim that although on first glance looks generic, has lots of good ideas and real depth. The star of Prey though is the amazing space station it's set on, a joy to explore.

A beautiful and relaxing experience that's marred by fairly simplistic, shallow gameplay and pacing issues.

A dark, atmospheric and immersive adventure, full of memorable moments. Design frustrations and lacklustre puzzles stop this reaching the heights of bedfellows Limbo and Inside – but this is still a captivating experience.

A cinematic, rollercoaster ride of high drama with twists and turns at every step. Structural flaws and a story perhaps not on-par with previous outings aren't enough to stop Zero Time Dilemma from being an excellent interactive experience.

Gorgeous, exhilarating and with a lot of charm, some niggles can't stop you from embracing Gravity Rush 2's positive vibe and the rush of flight.

A wonderful dip-in, dip out strategy game which appears very simple at first but has a surprising amount of depth, addictiveness and intrigue. Perfect for mobile but still good for longer sessions on desktops.

A dark and deep dungeon crawler with lots of difficult choices, great combat and cool stress mechanics. Does get a bit repetitive but overall a fantastic RPG for the tactically minded.

Enthralling, atmospheric and creepy with some nice new ideas. Unfortunately the quality doesn't sustain. Not as groundbreaking as some Resident Evil titles, but a promising new direction for the series.

A decent start to Telltale's imagining of the Batman story, but lacking in some key areas. Good characters are let down by a lacklustre plot, with choice, consequence and interesting interactivity being somewhat lacking.

An excellent remaster of a classic point and click adventure. Flaws with the genre remain but the time travel puzzles, non-linear design and entertainment value set this apart, making this great for returning veterans and newcomers alike.
