A sucker for atmosphere and world building. An immersive sim romantic.

8 / 10 - Outlast

As a huge horror aficionado, it’s great to see that the horror genre is making more of a comeback in recent years.

7 / 10 - Trials Fusion
Apr 16, 2014

Trials Fusion is an incredibly enjoyable game – its beauty is in its simplicity. There’s heaps of tracks to get through, a lot of variety in the course design as well as a fun and simplistic system that encourages repetition.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is a fantastic first person shooter that manages to provide a classical experience without feeling archaic and dated.

8 / 10 - Project Spark
Oct 16, 2014

Project Spark is a product, or experience, or whatever you want to call it that I am not really comfortable giving a numerical score to. It’s a tool that lets you make any kind of game experience whether it be something as simple as a piano keyboard or minesweeper to something more intricately built like a Zelda clone or a stealth action adventure game.

The Legend of Korra is a sound adaptation of the cartoon it’s based on. It has all the hallmarks of the original series, including a distinct visual style and incorporation of elemental bending into its gameplay, but it feels much too shallow to elevate itself beyond anything more than passable.

8 / 10 - Just Dance 2015
Oct 27, 2014

Just Dance 2015 is a pretty admirable improvement over Just Dance 2014. Ubisoft have done a lot of work in making sure that not only the set list has not only been refreshed but that there’s multiple new modes to attempt, including a great variety of both active and passive multiplayer.

6 / 10 - Never Alone
Dec 27, 2014

If I had to describe Never Alone succinctly – I’d say that its intentions are pure but that it falls flat in its execution.

8 / 10 - The Escapists
Feb 18, 2015

The Escapists is an interesting concept and one that works well as a game. The visual style’s colourful and cute nature juxtaposed with the violent and gritty subject matter gives the game a dark comedy vibe not unlike games like Worms and Flockers.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 does a great job at attempting to blend the old style of Resident Evil with the new ones.

Final Fantasy: Type-0 HD has all the makings of a great Final Fantasy game – namely a lack of fear to let go of everything previously established in other Final Fantasy games and offer a unique experience.
