Scoring around the 7.5/10 mark in 2005, this "Remake" doesn't really improve anything over the original. Yes, the graphics are updated, and yes the HUD and interfaces are decluttered, but the core lacklustre quality of the "exploration" shines through worse than before.

Personally, I feel that this game is damned close to being a perfect masterpiece. From start to finish I was captivated and the gunplay and combat are satisfyingly stealthy with progressive brutality which some may feel slightly overblows the emotive struggle you endure. Barring a few minuscule glitches and a feeling of being drawn out in places, The Last of Us 2 swings for the big leagues and raises the bar on every level.

4 / 10.0 - Those Who Remain
Jun 12, 2020

This is not a game that I would recommend to anyone other than really hardcore horror fans with a penchant for point-and-click style gameplay. While it has a nice little story going on throughout it just doesn't captivate or craft a memorable or original experience. I understand that it is inspired by classic supernatural films and TV series, but frankly, it just doesn't work to make Those who Remain an enjoyable game.

7.5 / 10.0 - Stranded Deep
May 28, 2020

Stranded Deep is a fun, engaging, challenging title with heaps of potential. If you enjoy the more realistic create and craft genre, heavy with resource management and land/sea exploration, you will have a whale of a time exploring and surviving every inch of the tropical map.

9 / 10.0 - Maneater
May 26, 2020

I was hooked from start to finish, as this over-the-top shark simulator is incredibly well rounded and feature-packed. There is nothing fishy about its shameless violence and savage humour, its polished to perfection. Trust your gut feeling and dive into this headfirst for the definitive apex predator experience!

I didn't think I would spend so long playing this game, and yet I find myself slinking off to a quiet room to get stuck back in and unlock more goodies. The leaderboard also feeds my compulsion to rise through the ranks; and I can't wait for my friends to get this game and try to give me a run for my money.

8.5 / 10.0 - Ion Fury
May 16, 2020

Rocking the original BUILD engine to full effect, this love letter to the classics is more of what you always wanted but couldn't quite get growing up. It brings back all those memories and actually reinvents this style of game, better than it ever really was. The switch is a great platform for this to shine with its motion controls and docked or hand-held play schemes, and even portably, it stands up as a solid game for you to play on your travels too.

4.5 / 10.0 - Spirit of the North
May 11, 2020

Not the worst game in the world and although on paper the pros slightly outweigh the cons I'm finding it incredibly hard to really recommend it beyond it being a nice idea.

7 / 10.0 - Profane
May 10, 2020

Profane is not my typical pick of a game, but it has to be said that there is a lot of fun to be had by changing it up. As a strategic bullet-hell twin-stick-shooter, this game looks great and offers a lot of bang for your buck. 10 bosses, 40 power-ups, and some tactical gameplay make this a solid title for those who adore this unforgiving genre.

An amazing experience that has to be seen to be believed. The Room VR: A Dark Matter takes Fireproof Games' established escape room genre to the next level and elevates it to incredible heights of an outstanding adventure thanks to the power of VR. I completely recommend this to any VR buffs out there, there is no reason not to enjoy this game.
