8 / 10.0 - Metro Exodus
Feb 13, 2019

Deviating from the series’ formula and taking the adventure above ground was a bold move for 4A Games, but it’s paid off. Metro Exodus can be unforgiving at times but it’s a rollicking, radioactive road-trip that’s sure to scratch that post-apocalyptic itch.

Etrian Odyssey Nexus is an excellent dungeon crawler, overland locations and all. It’s not only the perfect antidote to grimmer adventures but it’s an addictive, creative, appealing outing that will have you coming back for more and rarely regretting your return.

7 / 10.0 - Genesis Alpha One
Jan 29, 2019

Genesis Alpha One has more in common with Farming Simulator than No Man’s Sky, offering a more grounded take on exploration than most.

8 / 10.0 - Pikuniku
Jan 21, 2019

Pikuniku is an eye-pleasing, entertaining outing that just oozes charm, with characters who are endearing without ever becoming irritating. If you want a game that will have you grinning with joy, then pick up Pikuniku.

4 / 10.0 - Forever Forest
Jan 16, 2019

Forever Forest feels like an early access game; it looks and sounds a treat but there’s disappointingly little joy to be had here.

7 / 10.0 - Bury me, my Love
Jan 9, 2019

Bury Me, My Love isn’t always an easy trek, perhaps reflecting its subject matter, and it’s still better suited to mobile phones. But it’s so emotionally engaging that, despite multiple, doomed playthroughs, you won’t leave Nour’s side until you’ve guided her to safety.

6 / 10.0 - Viviette
Dec 27, 2018

Step through Vivette’s doors, by all means, but be prepared for an uneven stay.

Override: Mech City Brawl may not quite nail the grand sense of scale, and I would certainly have loved to see some more organic monsters added to the roster, but it’s an entertaining little fighter to dip into. And, if you can drag a few friends into battle, it makes for one hell of a fun party game.

Nevertheless, unless you’re thoroughly sick to death of post-apocalyptia, you’ll find that Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is a charming, entertaining outing; one that gives the turn-based combat genre a much needed shot in the arm.

The Shapeshifting Detective may lack the colossal budget of AAA games, but it nevertheless creates an intimate, skewed world that will draw you in. If you’ve ever fancied yourself an amateur sleuth, albeit one with an distinct biological advantage, then The Shapeshifting Detective will be right up your street.

Even if the game’s visuals don’t appeal to you and you’ve never tackled any other games in the series, it still warrants investigating. Corpse Party: Book of Shadows’ frequently disconcerting and often bloody payoffs, as well as periodical dollops of psychological horror, make it worth tolerating the game’s less engaging moments.

8 / 10.0 - Call of Cthulhu
Oct 29, 2018

Whether you're a Lovecraft fan or not, there's a lot here to love – just don't blame me if you have to clean Elder God-sized arse-prints off your windows.

5 / 10.0 - Zarvot
Oct 22, 2018

Weighed down by a middling-at-best single player mode, no matter how quirky it attempts to be, Zarvot's trying, polyhedral antics don't justify the price of admission.

Nevertheless, taken in reasonable doses, like the board game it's based on, Space Hulk: Tactics is a rewarding and satisfying strategy game, whether you're purging the unclean or punching your extendable jaws through an intergalactic fascist's face

Lacking the budget and visibility of the more mainstream WWE titles, there's a risk that Fire Pro Wrestling World will get overlooked, at least here in the west. But give it a chance and you'll discover an addictive, accomplished wrestle-fest that will have you grappling for hours at a time.

It's not perfect, but Marvel's Spider-Man is the best that a Spider-Man game has ever been, knocking even the long-lauded Spider-Man 2 off its perch. Fast, fluid and webtastically fun, Spider-Man will appeal to Spider-fans and newcomers alike.

8 / 10.0 - Two Point Hospital
Sep 4, 2018

Two Point Hospital is a ridiculously entertaining game that will challenge and delight in equal measure. Just remember to check your patients' wallets and purses before you check for a pulse

If you're dedicated to Warhammer 40,000's world you may get some joy out of this but Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr is anything but to-die-for.

7 / 10.0 - Graveyard Keeper
Aug 20, 2018

As long as you can stomach the slow opening stretch and that the game doesn't quite live up to its title, you'll enjoy this gruesome spin on the farming genre.

8 / 10.0 - State of Mind
Aug 13, 2018

Disappointing as this lack of follow-up may be, State of Mind still delivers a stellar sci-fi experience that, while comparable to other entries in the genre, has a character all its own. Given the game's complex topics, don't expect to walk away feeling like all is well with the world, but you'll be more than glad you plugged in.
