8 / 10 - Splatoon 3
Sep 7, 2022

Technically this is the best Splatoon ever, but the complete lack of anything approaching a new idea is profoundly disappointing.

4 / 10 - Saints Row
Aug 22, 2022

A tragically outdated open world adventure that almost has more in common with Goat Simulator than Grand Theft Auto, despite some moderately entertaining mechanics.

7 / 10 - Stray
Jul 18, 2022

A peculiar mix of cyberpunk dystopia and whimsical platformer that is just about held together by some excellent visuals and a very cute cat.

A work of unbridled ambition and imagination but also a pretentious, contrived, and frequently quite dull gameplay experience – Death Stranding is peak Hideo Kojima.

A wonderful single-player and co-op adventure that’s entirely self-contained and effortlessly charming from beginning to end.

9 / 10 - John Wick Hex
Oct 8, 2019

One of the best movie adaptations of all time and an impressively original strategy game that manages to rival even the best action titles in terms of tension and adrenaline rush.

6 / 10 - Sundered
Aug 1, 2017

Another promising game is ruined by the lure of procedural-generation, which is a particular shame given Sundered's gorgeous animation and interesting gameplay ideas.

9 / 10 - Dishonored 2
Nov 15, 2016

Every bit as intelligent and daring as its predecessor, and if you’re prepared to be equally creative while playing it then Dishonored 2 offers almost endless rewards.

7 / 10 - Virginia
Sep 22, 2016

Some may dismiss it as just another pretentious walking sim, but this innovative Lynchian drama is one of the best story-based games of the year.

A co-op Metroid seemed like a bad idea from the start, but while Federation Force has its moments they’re overshadowed by sloppy implementation and bland design.

6 / 10 - No Man's Sky
Aug 12, 2016

A stunning technical achievement and a mesmerisingly addictive one, even after you realise how simplistic and repetitive it really is.

A disappointing start to what should be a potential rich concept, with an overfamiliar storyline and bland presentation.

Jun 10, 2016

The best of the Fire Emblem Fates trilogy and one of the best portable strategy games ever made, with a perfect blend of the best elements of the first two chapters.

Full of imagination and great ideas, but Kirby seems destined to repeat the same mistakes forever – with zero challenge and aimless, unfocused game design.

A better game than the original, but it still suffers from many of the same problems – with desperately uninteresting storytelling and combat.

9 / 10 - Overwatch
May 26, 2016

The Street Fighter of online shooters is an inspired new take on familiar ideas, that proves personality really does go a long way.

Warhammer's fantasy elements add colour to Total War's already impressive framework, with a strategy game that is both deep and tactical but also fun and attractive.

May 16, 2016

A stunning work of imagination that turns the shallow spectacle of the original into a gorgeous-looking action game with real depth and replayability.

7 / 10 - Raiden V
May 12, 2016

The core gameplay is as excitingly well-crafted as usual but some strange design decisions, and odd omissions, make this an underwhelming sequel.

7 / 10 - Kathy Rain
May 11, 2016

One of the best graphic adventures of recent years, with an interestingly complex main character and some enjoyable puzzles.
