6.5 / 10.0 - Astroneer
May 15, 2019

Astroneer is a lovely serene survival crafting game that can feel aimless at times, but has masses of potential to be something special.

6.5 / 10.0 - World War Z
Apr 26, 2019

World War Z is a competent team-based shooter that doesn't really add anything new to the genre. It is, however, great fun to play with friends in short bursts.

12 is better than 6 is a frantic, top-down shooter with a lovely pen and paper visual style

6 / 10.0 - Beat Cop
Mar 27, 2019

Beat Cop is a relentless time management game where writing tickets and arresting perps is set against a background of sleaze and corruption.

7 / 10.0 - Metro Exodus
Feb 13, 2019

Metro Exodus feels like a game where its ambitions slightly outstrip its abilities. Visually stunning, it suffers a little too much from an obtuse system of storytelling and maps that are slightly too large creating long periods of doing nothing.

9 / 10.0 - Apex Legends
Feb 12, 2019

Apex Legends is a superb game featuring an excellent array of heroes, tight, responsive gun play, smooth movement, smart communication system and an astonishing level of polish in a free-to-play game.

6.5 / 10.0 - Genesis Alpha One
Jan 30, 2019

By trying to be all things to all people Genesis Alpha One loses any sense of identity. There is some really interesting ideas at work, and cool aesthetic in one portion of the game, but other areas feel underdeveloped.

Shadow Heritage is slightly more fun to play than Hunted was, but some weird narrative decisions undo a lot of the character progression from the main campaign and totally expose the illusion of player choice

8 / 10.0 - Subnautica
Jan 17, 2019

Subnautica is not without its issues, but it successfully manages to combine a strong sense of exploration and discovery with an interesting story hook and an exceptional soundtrack to make it one of the very best examples of the genre.

Legacy of the First Blade is a mostly underwhelming first DLC that has some interesting story information for long term fans of the Assassin's Creed series.

6 / 10.0 - Fallout 76
Nov 25, 2018

If you can re-frame Fallout 76 as a survival crafting game in the Fallout universe rather than viewing it as the next instalment in the series then you will have a better time. It is not without its faults, but there is a base there that has the potential to be improved upon as time goes by.

6 / 10.0 - My Memory of Us
Oct 31, 2018

It feels trite to put a score on a game like Memory of Us as it tells an important and poignant story that should be heard, it's just that at times the game parts get in the way of that story.

6.5 / 10.0 - Boundless
Oct 23, 2018

Boundless is a game heavy on exploration and crafting. The existence of craft able portals to other worlds extends the scope considerably, but obtuse recipes and unintuitive menus dampen the enthusiasm somewhat.

Black Ops 4 is an excellent entry into the series. Some may mourn the loss of the single player campaign, but this is the tightest most balanced multiplayer the franchise has seen in a long while.

A huge, ambitious game building on the solid foundations of Origins to deliver a game that feels like another positive step towards a very interesting future for the franchise.

6 / 10.0 - Bad North
Sep 14, 2018

A minimalist's take on the real time strategy genre, with a strong pick and play quality that doesn't quite do enough to bridge the gap between novices and veterans of the genre.

Sunless Sea is a unique title. A rogue-like set in a Lovecraftian nightmare with table-top RPG elements backed up by some truly excellent writing. The slow pace, and narrative delivery may well put some players off though.

A beautifully drawn adventure told by an extremely talented voice actor that suffers a little from its own style.

6.5 / 10.0 - Bomb Chicken
Jul 12, 2018

Bomb Chicken is a fun little platformer that doesn't quite manage to balance its difficulty consistently throughout its entirety. Simple mechanics and an adorable fat hen do mean though that you'll have a good time for the most part.

The Adventures of Captain Spirit is an interesting way to generate interest in the Life is Strange sequel. Chris and his alter-ego is a likeable little boy trying to navigate a childhood filled with both imaginary and real-life monsters.
