Unscored - Two Point Campus
Aug 4, 2022

University management is an easygoing joy which makes it a great time for all, even if it doesn't entirely reward you for building a campus that's uniquely yours.

A powerwash 'em up which makes the fight against grime a soothing experience and a rare simulator that's focused on fun, not faff.

Unscored - Escape Academy
Jul 13, 2022

Despite its empty halls and predictable plot, it's a charming escape room sim that's filled with clever puzzles that reward and rarely frustrate. The entire thing can be played with a bud too, making this a brilliant co-op jaunt.

Unscored - V Rising
Jun 9, 2022

A streamlined survival game that iterates rather than innovates, but still stakes its claim as a good time solo and a great time with friends in tow.

A side-scrolling roguelite with a penchant for randomness that leads more to messy frustrations than the Lovecraftian legends it wants to produce.

Unscored - Nightmare Reaper
May 9, 2022

A reto-styled FPS with a dash of rogue-lite that's a swell time, even if it doesn't commit hard enough to the rogue-lite loop.

Unscored - Trek to Yomi
May 5, 2022

A samurai side-scroller with striking visuals and a compelling story of revenge, let down a little by enemies that get very samey, very quickly.

Unscored - Rogue Legacy 2
Apr 28, 2022

A roguelike that expands on the original in every way imaginable, with a dizzying number of incentives that ensure repeat runs never get stale.

Unscored - Turbo Overkill
Apr 21, 2022

A perfectly paced retro-inspired FPS which'll have you wishing every future video game protagonist is outfitted with a chainsaw for a leg.

Apr 12, 2022

BIOTA is an 8bit metroidvania that's hardly groundbreaking, but that makes for a fun - sometimes great - time for fans of platforming and backtracking.

A Star Wars compilation that's undeniably fun, but wildly inconsistent and with far too much padding from collectibles.

Unscored - Babylon's Fall
Mar 4, 2022

Babylon's Fall is a confusing jumble of an online action-RPG that's mired in unrewarding activities and loot.

Unscored - Elden Ring
Feb 23, 2022

Elden Ring is an action-RPG with an open world that's not only incredibly rich, but encouraging too. This game will be the talk of the Blighttown for years to come.

Unscored - Lost Ark
Feb 8, 2022

Excellent Diablo-like combat struggles to make up for a grind levelling process baked into a cookie-cutter MMORPG template.

Read full review

A tactical FPS that borrows from Rainbow Six Siege's best bits and turns them into a moreish, alien-busting time. It may not blow you away, but it's perfect for challenging co-op jaunts with pals.

An action RPG that has you shapeshifting through a colourful world. Despite that colour, and some really fun moments, repetitive dungeon-crawls mean you're not so much saving the world as clearing it.

Unscored - Solar Ash
Dec 1, 2021

An action-adventure that sees you topple big monsters with your rollerblades. It's stylish and oh-so-smooth when it gets in the flow, but is hampered by repetition.

Unscored - Battlefield 2042
Nov 19, 2021

An FPS package that has its fun moments, but one that's blighted by performance issues. Portal holds great potential and may be the only mode that stands the true test of time.

An unremarkable FPS story set in World War 2. Has moments of spectacle and is largely quite fun, but feels like you're a gun on-rails, hardly a war hero.

A heroic action adventure that's simple, but full of surprises and little details. Unmissable for Marvel fans, but also a solid buy if you're just after a good time.
