- Wave Race 64
A decent little game for a reasonable price, but it's kept so simple it can be often confusing and unsatisfying to play. The humour and tongue-in-cheek ideology is fun to participate in. The basic premise, minimal weaponry, and simple but brain-bending puzzles build towards a superb game that never quite manages to lift itself from mediocrity.
Skellboy breaks no barriers and raises no bars, but it provides a relatively easy outing for people starting out in the Action RPG genre. Its comedically written script and variety of items lift it up, but dull, monotonous gameplay draws it back down to the depths from which it came.
What this game lacks in pace it makes up for in content. Trophies, collectables, riddles, clues and dark secrets make for easily 20 plus hours of gameplay if you really drill down and hunt everything out. The style and presence would be ideal for VR, which is great as that's exactly what Wales Interactive plans to do (on other formats).
I love what this game strives for, and I love how it plays out. Crytek excels in immersion and they have done an incredible job with Hunt: Showdown. Highly recommended if you have friends to partner up with, as server issues seem to plague it in its early days.
A very strong outing for the Zombie Army series, with an incredible eye for detail, variety in every aspect and a fresh lick of paint. This is an essential pick-up for anyone who has enjoyed any of the previous games or the Sniper Elite series.
Patch after patch, this game improves and matures into something special. It's the best of its kind in an undersaturated genre and it's entirely worth your time to investigate. Although it isn't a true "Triple-A" outing of a game; it certainly paves the way for greatness in future instalments or clones thanks to innovative stealthy gameplay and fun modes and exploration.
Definitely worth playing, especially with the relatively cheap £30-£35 pricetag. It's so well presented before you step foot into the first level that I expected more from the in-game content. It goes to show that you can't judge a book by the cover, though it does a lot right, it doesn't truly push any boundaries or stand out from the crowd enough to make it an essential purchase.
Monster Jam Steel Titans is destined for the sale bin. It's too devoid of enjoyment to be worth picking up on eShop, and definitely not worth the strangely staggered physical release that's touted for February. If you're a major petrolhead you may get a portable kick out of it, if not, it's best just to steer clear.
