How to Survive 2's base building is a smart addition to the survival and zombie-slaying action of the original, however, beyond that, it feels, looks and plays very much like the original title. As such it feels like more of an expansion than a fully-fledged sequel, and whilst the simple but satisfying combat and co-op option makes it fun, it's not the most innovative or gripping survival game on the market.

4 / 10 - Plantera
Feb 15, 2017

As cute and appealing as Plantera's presentation is, there's very little 'game' here. Instead, this is an idle game, a click game, one meant to be played between other tasks, and therefore one not well suited to the Wii U. There's still fun to be had, but only in short play sessions that will inevitably become shorter and shorter until, very quickly, there's nothing left to entice you back.

Samurai Sword VR's arcade-style katana swinging and shuriken/kunai throwing is a bit too clumsy and chaotic, requiring less skill and more frantic flailing to succeed. Sure, this can be fun, but ultimately only for a short time. There's simply not enough variety, or accuracy to the hit detection, to make this a title that demands replayability, despite the pull of online leaderboards and the otherwise highly accessible VR, on-rails action.

It’s largely the same hilarious, gory surgery sim you know and love, but its mechanics don't translate well to VR.

7 / 10.0 - Alice VR
Nov 29, 2016

Alice VR doesn’t have the most engaging puzzles, and its slow pace may be off-putting to some, but this VR ‘walking simulator’ through a sci-fi re-imagining of Wonderland is a beautiful, trippy and clever experience.

8 / 10.0 - Lethal VR
Nov 10, 2016

Lethal VR’s lack of Global leaderboards means your high score chasing is restricted to local friends and family, but there’s still plenty here to keep you from taking your headset off.

9 / 10.0 - Shadow Warrior 2
Oct 27, 2016

Shadow Warrior 2's self-referential toilet humour, insanely stylistic combat, bounty of loot and jaw dropping visuals, add up to a thoroughly entertaining and silly game full of gory combat, dick jokes and impressive weaponry. It's great fun if you're not in the market from something serious.

7 / 10.0 - DEXED
Oct 12, 2016

DEXED brings the classic on-rails shooter genre into a new dimension splendidly and does a superb job of teasing an intriguing concept for a full game.

7.5 / 10.0 - Kittypocalypse (VR)
Sep 11, 2016

The VR feels more like a delightful addition rather than an integral part of the experience, but there’s no denying how much fun it is to slaughter the cute alien kitty menace.

6.5 / 10.0 - The Assembly
Aug 16, 2016

The Assembly is a good idea with great building blocks for its intended exploration and puzzle mechanics but it feels somewhat undeveloped. It'll no doubt leave you intrigued yet ultimately pining for more.
