6 / 10.0 - Snooker 19
Jul 19, 2019

There's a really good core game here, but it's let down by the overall presentation. If you enjoy snooker though, you can easily look past this to enjoy it for what it is.

5 / 10.0 - Truberbrook
Jun 23, 2019

Unless you're a die-hard point and click aficionado, it's difficult to recommend this adventure. One thing is for certain though: It's not worth its RRP of £24.99.

2.5 / 10.0 - Spike Volleyball

It's not even worth your thought time, never mind anything else.

2.5 / 10.0 - Dude Cops
Feb 2, 2019

It's nothing more than a concept game for the developers, but I could have given it a higher score if it gave me a laugh. But it didn't. Just pretend you never even read this review and carry on with your life.

I really wanted to like this game, and after the beta I was hoping there would be more to it than what they were testing. Unfortunately, there's not, and there's absolutely no way I could recommend buying this game. If you could pick it up for £10, sure, but four times that? No way.

7.5 / 10.0 - Red Dead Redemption 2
Nov 14, 2018

It is possibly the best open world that you can visit, held back by a main story that's a bit too archaic. On the whole, it's still highly enjoyable, so I would still highly recommend you dig into it. You'll definitely get your money's worth.

8 / 10.0 - Lightfield
Oct 8, 2018

Highly polished and with beautiful presentation, this futuristic parkour-inspired game is a true unique take on the genre – not something that can be said often. If you like Wipeout, you will definitely enjoy this.

6.5 / 10.0 - War Tech Fighters
Sep 11, 2018

It does its job well as a Gundam-style mech shooter, but it just doesn't do quite enough to keep me going back in for more action. The majority of levels are just “go here, shoot this, follow that”, which unfortunately gets very repetitive after a couple of hours. There's a lot you can do with customisation, though.

7 / 10.0 - Guts and Glory
Sep 4, 2018

It's absolutely crazy, off the wall, batshit insane. It is basically just Happy Wheels but in 3D, bundled with all the gore, characters and “charm”. If you can even call it charm. Sadistic charm is probably better.

5 / 10.0 - Corpse Mob
Aug 19, 2018

Corpse Mob is an honest game. It's a top-down arcade shooter for you to have a bit of fun in – no more, no less. Of course it'd be improved with online multiplayer support, and perhaps a bit more variation in between the waves, but then I expect it wouldn't cost less than £2.

8 / 10.0 - Forgotton Anne
Aug 7, 2018

The story won't shock and disturb you as much as Game of Thrones might, but it's a story anyone can engage with. It'll even have you reeling in genuine grief when you've distilled an old sock.

If you're a veteran strategy guy up for a challenge, then The Spatials: Galactology could be right up your street. Otherwise, it's a hard sell. Some of the issues make me think that it might have benefitted from a little longer in Early Access.

Supposedly Wonderful Future has left me considering the events of the game, and whether my moral choices make me a monster or a model citizen. It doesn't really do much wrong, but if you didn't like point-and-click games with a heavy amount of text before, you won't enjoy them after, either.

A fitting final DLC pack for Battlefield 1, with three great new maps and more unlockables to keep you busy. Air Assault may not be my cup of tea, but for those who are more adept than me in the air, it will provide a nice quick alternative to battling on land.

It's a very solid remaster of a classic game, and those looking for a nostalgia trip to 20 years ago should look no further. Some of the quirks are still present, even the original cheats, ultimately making this the true Definitive Edition.

8 / 10.0 - Bear With Me
Feb 22, 2018

The positives far outweigh any negatives here, with the occasional breaking of the fourth wall, cinema and game references providing lighter tones throughout.
