A new take on the classic falling brick game... now with a kicking techno beat!

4.1 / 5.0 - Death's Door
Nov 24, 2021

In so many ways, Death's Door is the high end indy title to a tee. It's extremely polished, very creative, terrific for shorter sessions, but lacks a little in depth. Still, it's hard not to recommend Death's Door for fans of the action-adventure, Zelda genre and/or someone looking for something truly different for the Switch. Just note it can be a visual struggle when played in the Switch's portable fashion.

4.3 / 5.0 - They Always Run
Nov 24, 2021

Overall They always run is an intriguing example on modern 2-D platformers. Whilst it has minor problems with some of the platforming it does not take away from the atmosphere and aesthetic this game exudes. Whilst not having the most compelling story being very formulaic and told through long text breaks the combat and graphics more than make up for it.

There's an old saying that goes "You can't polish a turd, but you can roll it in glitter". Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is almost the exact opposite of that proverb, with the core foundation of the three titles still retaining their charm, albeit in an anachronistic way, but the sterling gold nugget that is the original trilogy is now slathered in so many scoops of steaming shit that it's hard to appreciate them for what they are.

Overall, while not perfect, Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One provided an incredibly entertaining and challenging experience that detective fans, especially Sherlock Holmes fans, will be happy to experience.

There's still some way to go to make the JWE franchise a viable management sim, but this sequel goes a long way to right a lot of its predecessor's wrongs.

3.3 / 5.0 - World War Z
Nov 18, 2021

It's clear that Saber Interactive had their work cut out for them with this one. It's reportedly the toughest challenge they've faced in game development, so I have to commend them on brining the true World War Z experience to the Nintendo Switch. Though the original game is here in its entirety, it just isn't on the same level as the other platforms and should only the version of choice if a Switch is your only option or if you're really craving a zombie action shooter to have on the go. Otherwise, you're better off getting World War Z: Aftermath which has the same game along with extra content, looks a whole lot better, and retails for the same exact price.

Overall, aside from the visual upgrade, Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is far from a suitable remaster as it fails to change many of the original issues. However, while it's also far from the best Fatal Frame game, it does still offer players the signature enjoyable camera combat and some surprisingly fitting aesthetic.

Although a solid offering overall, one can't help but feel that the series has taken a step backwards in terms of the content available as well as the era depicted; instead of expanding upon the almost non-linear structure of the Cold War campaign we instead get a safe reversion back to the standard model and the Zombies mode is barebones as all get out no matter how you slice it.

4.3 / 5.0 - Röki
Nov 10, 2021

If you're a fan of puzzle and adventure titles like the Broken Sword series, as well as more intimate character focused experiences that derive a lot of its influence from cultural folklore, such as the aforementioned Never Alone, then Röki is more than deserving of your time. It's not the longest experience but is engaging throughout and spins a yarn that is honestly one of the more emotionally affecting I've experienced this year.

Best played with friends but still fun solo, mini games with variety to please everyone.

Rainbow Billy: The Curse of the Leviathan if a perfect starter RPG, and has enough charm and variation to keep the seasoned player entertained. While it can be a bit long winded at times, I think that you'd be missing out if you didn't give this one a shot.

Kudos to developers Outright Games for bringing Peppa into the world gaming who perfectly bring this franchise to life on this medium. It also encourages exploration, some trial and error but rest assured, it never becomes too difficult and is more about the world of our favourite piglet plus interacting with it. So if you have a younger gamer who loves Peppa, then check out My Friend Peppa Pig The Video Game!

'Assassin's Creed Discovery Tour: Viking Age' is the self-guided, interactive, behind-the-scenes museum tour for Assassin's Creed: Valhalla. Without the violence, combat, or fictional elements of Valhalla, 'Viking Age' is basically an education tool showcasing how much hard work the team at Ubisoft did to make the AAA title. On its own, Viking Age is incredible and could quite easily contribute to the future of education. However, as it is a by-product of such a critically acclaimed game, 'Viking Age' is left standing in Valhalla's very large shadow. Had things been the other way around with 'Viking Age' as the original title and Valhalla filling the role of its successor, then things would have been completely different. I don't mean to draw such a heavy comparison between the two titles, but I've got to call it as it is. That said, 'Assassin's Creed Discovery Tour: Viking Age' is still an amazing experience and worth checking out. I have more respect for the Assassin's Creed games and Ubisoft for playing 'Viking Age' and cannot emphasise its value as an educational tool.

Kena: Bridge of Spirits should take most gamers around 10 to 12 hours to complete, depending on the amount of exploring and the level of difficulty. While the blockbusters games of 2021 continue to deliver the same ho-hum experience of 2021, Kena is a much needed ray of sunshine to the current choices of titles available and more importantly, looks fantastic on the PlayStation 5. Additionally, the story and characters creates an enjoyable fairy-tale experience from start to finish on this next-gen console that is definitely a must play game of  2021. Kudos to the development team of Ember Labs for delivering a truly immersive experience, not to mention those surprising twists along the way.

The Lightbringer misses many opportunities. Despite having great core gameplay, it fails to immerse the player in its lore and aura due to its rough, and at times, incomplete edges. If players are willing to look past these shortcomings, the gameplay will keep fans of 2.5D platformers satisfied. That is, if they don't skip a level every time they are met with the slightest of challenges.
