7 / 10 - Black The Fall
Jul 19, 2017

Black the Fall is an enjoyable, devilish platformer and one that deserves a tremendous amount of praise, however what it lacks is character and narrative, and this is what sadly prevents it from joining the top ranks of other titles in the genre.

Back in 2014 we thought Toybox Turbos was the closest thing we'd get to a revitalised reboot of Micro Machines, so upon reflecting on the release of an actual brand new Micro Machines, is Toybox Turbos a better Micro Machines game than World Series? It may not have had the franchise name but it tried to be Micro Machines and succeeded, whereas World Series IS Micro Machines and it's sadly disappointing.

To put it simply, Children of Zodiarcs is a fantastic, challenging and hugely enjoyable tactical RPG; however, a lack of variation in its gameplay stops it from being so much better. Each battlefield, though simple, is a tremendous task to navigate round and conquer, with each mission asking more from you than the last.

I’ll keep it brief, Pillars of Eternity is a masterful love letter to old school RPGs, making it an absolute must buy for adventure connoisseurs.

Retailing at just £1.99, this maniacal expansion really takes Mantis Burn Racing onto a whole new level, bringing with it that explosive excitement I so badly craved for when I first played this game in 2016.

9 / 10 - F1 2017
Oct 5, 2017

Everything in F1 2017 far surpasses everything that made 2016 such a great racing sim, and though the results aren’t as noticeably superior as last year’s improvements, the subtle changes here have set the bar on what makes a truly deep and exciting Formula One experience.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 is a terrific game and Konami have definitely scored a cracker here. It may not have the shine, the names, or the good commentary that FIFA has, but the challenging, rewarding and impressive tweaks to the AI and gameplay really do make PES2018 the most realistic and enjoyable football games on the market right now.

t’s reassuring that even when cashing in on the impending Autumn blockbuster, Warner Bros have pulled no punches when making this game. If you’re looking for a solid platformer to play alone, with friends or with family, then LEGO Ninjago is a pretty kickass choice!

Assassins Creed Origins is as big, beautiful and brutal as the version you played in your dreams, simply making it the best game in the history of the Creed. This is the innovation the 10 year old franchise needed, and the blueprint that the next 10 years needs.

Despite the cringey dialogue and general over arcing storyline, Need for Speed Payback is a pretty enthralling 4 wheeled crusade. It may contradict itself by featuring linear, checkpoint ridden roads on a wide open, treacherous continent, but the races themselves are slick, chaotic and heart pounding for the most part, and with numerous secondary objectives and challenges to complete, there’s certainly a lot to keep you and your car occupied.
