Andy Manson's Reviews

Older than the Atari 2600. Probably just as dusty too.

Retaining what made the first game unique, whilst making it a much more rounded experience that you’ll be more likely to revisit, Surgeon Simulator 2 is a good single-player experience that becomes pretty special in online co-op. Gather some mates and it’s one of the most fun multiplayer experiences of the year.

The bastard child of DOOM, Devil Daggers and Tetris Effect, BPM: Bullets Per Minute is one of the most pleasant surprises of the year and a game I’d thoroughly recommend to anyone with a hankering for something different in the FPS genre. Just don’t expect an easy ride. Even on Easy.

6 / 10 - NBA 2K21
Sep 12, 2020

An incredible simulation of the game of basketball, which might as well be a free-to-play mobile game with so many microtransactions at times. If you can resist the temptation to pour money in, it’s the best sports sim on the market by a fair distance. Unfortunately, this is the worst game in the franchise for attempting to exploit that temptation. Wait for a heavy discount to make any further outlay a more palatable decision.

A bright and breezy game that unfortunately drags a little at points, Paradise Killer is nevertheless an enjoyable jaunt that does something a little different with a genre that has a reputation for being somewhat dour. Absolutely worth your time – just be prepared to dedicate a little more of it than you might expect in the early stages.

While I have serious issues with the pacing issues presented by the driving and resource management aspects, and the narrative sections can sometimes just feel like you’re pressing a button with little thought to advance, Road to Guangdong remains a game with enough charm to garner a qualified recommendation with me – if you can avoid triggering a Game Over, it’ll take up no more than 3-4 hours of your time and, for what’s there, that’s a more than fair investment.

6 / 10.0 - Jydge
Oct 5, 2017

Ultimately, the most disappointing aspect of JYDGE is the game that I could see it being with just a few tweaks. As it is, it’s a game with a great aesthetic and some neatly implemented ideas that just doesn’t do enough where it matters.

7.5 / 10.0 - Windjammers
Aug 28, 2017

Windjammers is back, just as you remember it. And whilst that’s both a blessing and a curse, I’m just glad to have it back, and at a price that doesn’t make me openly weep. If you’re after another game to add to your collection of party titles, you could do a lot worse

9 / 10.0 - LawBreakers
Aug 17, 2017

Ultimately, what sets LawBreakers aside from its competitors in a very crowded genre is its ability to create moments.

8.5 / 10.0 - Sine Mora EX
Aug 6, 2017

Difficulty aside, Sine Mora EX is a unique and fun experience that sits memorable amongst the plethora of cookie cutter shmups. More importantly, it's just a genuinely good game in its own right. If you didn't play it in 2012, you should definitely play it now.

6 / 10.0 - DeadCore
Jul 22, 2017

Deadcore feels like something that should have come to console sooner. It’s not terrible by any means, and many will enjoy the thrill of climbing the leaderboard. The overall 'Tron meets Portal' future aesthetic was also something I enjoyed. Sadly though, it’s all just a little underwhelming.
