Dashiell Wood's Reviews
After a promising opening, Ghost Song collapses under the weight of its ill-conceived mechanics.
An excellent turn-based strategy that shines in spite of some minor annoyances.
The constant threat of chaos adds tension and fun to an otherwise basic management sim.
Kitaria Fables is a decent farming life sim sadly hampered by its poor RPG elements
A Total War Saga: Troy - Mythos is far from flawless, but still a solid addition which builds on some of the features of the base game.
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles isn’t just far and away the best entry in a long running franchise, it's one of the greatest visual novel games ever made.
A great location and the introduction of a few new gameplay elements make The Sims 4 Cottage Living an enjoyable but unessential add-on.
Mini Motorways is an enjoyable and often beautiful puzzler, but the lack of long term replayability makes it harder to recommend over its already excellent predecessor.
Surprisingly sincere, wonderfully heartwarming and beautifully drawn, Raptor Boyfriend is a charming visual novel which strikes the perfect balance between comedy and coziness.
With an enjoyable selection of arcade sports minigames, the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: Official Video Game is a gold medal effort.
Umurangi Generation is a game with a lot of worthwhile things to say but the miserable state of optimization in the Special Edition make this Switch rerelease an experience which is difficult to recommend. Although the inclusion of the previously separate Macro story DLC may seem an appealing prospect, players with any degree of access to a capable PC should under no circumstances purchase this vastly inferior port.
A renewed focus on gameplay sets Dream Home Decorator apart as some of the best downloadable content that The Sims 4 has seen in years.
Muddy graphics, repetitive missions, and persistent technical failings make Castle Flipper a historical building simulator in dire need of renovation.
Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World is an enjoyable reimagining of an underappreciated 1994 classic that leaves some room for improvement.
The Survivalists' cute pixelated graphics may be pleasing and the prospect of a procedurally generated island to explore is undeniably tantalising; but the sheer number of incredibly frustrating issues present in this title, especially when coupled with the hefty asking price, ironically make The Survivalists one game you could certainly survive without.
Going Under‘s quirky bright colours, light-hearted dialogue and enjoyable slow-paced music creates a very calming effect and, as a result, playing the game feels almost therapeutic in the absolute best of ways.
House on the Hill is an undeniably promising experience. Each of the four stories it presents may appear a little cliché to horror veterans, the game’s unique narrative flair carries just enough new ideas of its own to keep the experience interesting throughout and coming in at just over £5 with the tantalising possibility of future improvement updates and content additions; House on the Hill is a title that’s definitely worth keeping an eye on.
Despite some very minor shortcomings, the entertaining writing and engaging visual flair elevates the game's experimental gameplay combination of addictive deck-building and unpredictable real-time strategy. Cute and colourful, Necronator: Dead Wrong is one unique strategy experience you won't soon forget.
When it comes to retro-styled platformers, this is certainly one of the best we’ve seen yet. It may not entirely reinvent the wheel conceptually but Panzer Paladin still has a host of fantastic features and a great art direction. Any fans of the genre will certainly appreciate a particularly well crafted set of maps, some killer music and gameplay which has undeniably been tweaked to perfection.
It may a be a little rough around the edges but the game provides series fans with exactly what they would want from a sequel whilst still, almost incredibly, wholly subverting expectations. It supersedes the original in some respects whilst simultaneously significantly lacking in others but nevertheless provides a suitable vessel for Agent Francis York Morgan, one of the most brilliantly written characters in videogame history, to make a triumphant return. I’ve never known a game to have a more fitting tagline than Deadly Premonition 2 which, on the whole, can rightfully be described as nothing short of “a blessing in disguise”.
