Aaron Varshney's Reviews

Breathing in the fresh air of the Somerset countryside in the UK, I have been brought up around technology. Starting on the ZX-81 and the BBC Master, I have gone on to play computer games it what seems forever. An avid games collector of all kinds, the PC is primarily where my heart lies. I have been working on a freelance basis for other companies in the Games (20013), Game Editorial Magazines (Future Publishing 2007, PlayStation Universe 2014), and Web (1999) industries.

8.5 / 10.0 - F1 2018
Aug 24, 2018

It is remarkable how far Codemasters have come with the F1 series and F1 2018 has proven that a move towards simulation can be done without alienating casual players. Finally a spectacular Formula 1 experience for simulation fans.

A solid first entry in the series. If you're a Supercross fan then you'll easily get knee deep into the excellent track editor and have good fun hurtling around its muddy tracks.

When Outcast Second Contact was announced I was jumping with glee, one of my favourite games of the 90's finally being remade for the modern age. If only the team had spent more time fixing the performance issues before release.

Raiden V: Director's Cut is a solid, retro-flavored shooter that does a lot right but doesn't innovate or advance the genre forward in any way.

8 / 10.0 - Project CARS 2
Sep 19, 2017

Project CARS 2 is one hell of a colossal mammoth of a game. The scope of the driving series available, the car and track selection from classic to the modern era, the weather, the brilliant online championship mode, it's all there, ready-in-waiting. Whether you play it for the single player or for the multiplayer, this game has everything.

Codemasters has yet again released another glorious Formula 1 game that continues to push the franchise forward. With its updated handling model and in-depth career mode, it's perfect for fans of the series building upon the best parts of what made F1 2016 great.

White Day: A Labyrinth Named School is a shocking surprise that has come out of nowhere. The suspense, encounters, and puzzles make for an unforgettable experience deserving of the horror moniker.

6 / 10.0 - Leaving Lyndow
Jul 28, 2017

Overall, Eastshade Studio has a good setting primed ready for their main game, Eastshade. The environments are beautiful and the interactions are cleverly done, let's just hope that they sort out the mouth masks, the stuttering, blurring, and the framerate before Eastshade arrives.

Unfortunately, Micro Machines World Series has been forced into a corner where its eSports nature, buggy online play, and less than half features of the content of its non-licensed predecessor makes this a hard purchase.

For the amount of staff that worked on this game, they do have a good base to work from, but unfortunately there are so many issues that it detracts from being an enjoyable affair. Its sub three-hour gameplay has no replayability at all, and the consistently harsh frame rate dips heavily impact the game.

8.5 / 10.0 - LocoRoco Remastered
May 14, 2017

Other than the poor quality of the cutscenes, LocoRoco is filled with oodles of charm, a soundtrack that delights, and the most adorable characters in any game ever. There's no escaping the happiness you feel when playing LocoRoco.

5 / 10.0 - Valhalla Hills
Apr 26, 2017

Valhalla Hills tries to bring The Settlers II gameplay up to snuff but while it improves in some areas, it completely negates some aspects on what made The Settlers II so much fun in the first place. Building and autonomy is done decently well but with the lack of continuation and multiplayer makes it pale in comparison. Its price for entry is very worrying too and doesn't help matters.

Despite the lack of character development and the occasional forced grind for gear, Dragon Quest Heroes II is a monstrously fun and childish game that will appeal to both grown-ups and children alike. It's witty script and adorable looking characters makes the game enjoyable to play throughout plus the sheer size of the customisable skill trees will keep Dynasty Warriors fans happy.

Sublevel Zero Redux brings something new to the FPS genre. Despite it's minor oddities, it's a well-rounded game that deserves to be in everyone's library.

While Project DIVA Future Tone is a welcome addition to the PlayStation family, it most certainly doesn’t hold your hand when trying to master every song. Hitting that last note and realising you’ve got yourself a perfect or even scraping a pass is the most satisfying feeling ever.

If you've got a few mates together and the drinks are flowing, then this should only be considered as a last ditch attempt to inject some fun into your evening.
