7.9 / 10.0 - Metro Exodus
Feb 12, 2019

Metro Exodus' excellent storytelling, art design and atmosphere make it the most engrossing entry in the trilogy. However, clunky, inconsistent design, poor AI and open-world hub areas which are severely underutilized prevent this ambitious project from fulfilling its full potential.

6.9 / 10.0 - Necrosphere
Jan 30, 2019

Necrosphere uses an uber simple game design to make an otherwise difficult and frustrating retro platformer fun to play. Plus it cost only a five spot and plays great on the PS Vita.

8.5 / 10.0 - Resident Evil 2
Jan 30, 2019

Resident Evil 2 is an excellent remake of a horror classic. While the narrative shortcomings of the original game remain so does the inescapable menace of its atmosphere and the timeless horror which makes it so compellingly terrifying. Excellent combat and level design make it a pleasure to play while a multiple campaigns and modes make this definitive edition rich with content.

8 / 10.0 - Genesis Alpha One
Jan 28, 2019

Genesis Alpha One isn’t a great FPS, and if you’re looking for Mass Effect-like space exploration, you’ll need to keep looking. But if you like deep base-building sprinkled with light alien blasting and space mining, then Genesis Alpha One delivers big time.

The Hong Kong Massacre is a treasure of a game. It’s basically John Woo’s Stranglehold, but as a top-down shooter, and as Stranglehold is one of my favourite game’s of the PS360 era, that’s the highest praise I can give it.

The Grand Tour Game could have been a decent little add-on to a brilliant TV show. Instead it crashes and burns at every turn. You can thank to ‘naff handling for that.

6 / 10.0 - Smash Hit Plunder
Jan 14, 2019

Smash Hit Plunder has a great concept but it doesn’t do a whole lot with it. Smashing things is always fun and it’s even better with friends. Get this one for the multiplayer.

9 / 10.0 - Vane
Jan 14, 2019

Vane’s arresting visual design, inventive mechanics, compelling environmental storytelling, and tense, viscous atmosphere converge to create a truly exceptional experience and PS4’s first essential exclusive of the year.

4 / 10.0 - Nippon Marathon
Jan 11, 2019

Nippon Marathon is a weird game for weird people. I consider myself to be weird, but this is some next-level stuff. If you find that your tastes in games generally align with mine, leave this alone. If you sit around watching anime on your Hello Kitty TV whilst eating imported noodles with authentic wasabi sauce – go for it, you weirdo.

4 / 10.0 - Road Redemption
Jan 10, 2019

Road Redemption’s vehicular combat provides fleeting fun but repetitive objectives, limited gameplay variety and tedious progression make this ride feel like a slog.

2 / 10.0 - Gungrave VR
Dec 18, 2018

Gungrave VR is actually one of the rare virtual reality titles that fails to have anything minutely interesting to it. Like there was no reason for this to be a PSVR game other than to be a distraction on how bad the game is. The nonexistent story is one thing, but broken, uninspired, and basic gameplay is another. Don’t play this game. Even if you receive a virtual reality headset and this title for free.

Mutant Year Zero mixes exploration and stealth with turn-based strategic combat for a fresh, fun and exciting romp through the apocalypse. A must-play title that I wasn't expecting, but can't wait to get back to.

4.5 / 10.0 - Just Cause 4
Dec 14, 2018

Avalanche Studios clearly tried doing something different with the Just Cause series and added some new flavor to Just Cause 4. It’s a shame none of the additions really fit or handled properly. The story wasn’t well told, gameplay gravitated away from proper destruction, and just things that make the title look like it’s from 2008. If Just Cause 4 is like this because the developers are running out of ideas, it might be best to retire the series and move on to something else.

Thronebreaker isn’t completely the Gwent I knew and loved, but after learning the new rules and ways I found myself having fun. For all about ten to thirty minutes before I was crashed back to the PS4 dashboard with a blue screen. Not in all my life had I experienced a title die like this before and actually make me worry about the health of my gaming console. Art design, voice acting, and the basic traversal around the world did a great job bringing a simple card game to life. It’s just that all of them were smothered by the color blue.

7 / 10.0 - THE VIDEOKID
Dec 11, 2018

The VideoKid is a fun and addictive take on an arcade classic. Filled with challenging gameplay and a barrage of nostalgic references to pop culture, this 80s themed homage to Paperboy is worth a go.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy offers great value for money with three fantastically presented remakes of classic games. The quality-of-life additions are a nice touch, too, as is the option for dynamic music. The performance could have been a little better, but if you played these games on the original PlayStation then you’ll no doubt be able to look past the very few shortcomings this collection has.

8.5 / 10.0 - Red Dead Redemption 2
Oct 28, 2018

Red Dead Redemption 2 is an interesting game. Fun is pushed to the background in place of realism and a dedication to keeping the world grounded in reality. You’re a guest and you have to play by the rules, and Rockstar lets you know this by dictating everything and putting a limit on what you can and can’t do.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider has some of the best visuals and sound of any game this year. This last entry in the trilogy has improved every aspect of the previous two games while adding some new ideas. Exploration is both thrilling and satisfying, and the excellent tombs are enormous puzzles waiting to be discovered and conquered. Other than a few minor audio and video flaws, the story and characters fall just a little short of greatness, but that won't keep you from enjoying an amazing game. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara finally realizes her full potential, and it is quite the ride.

8.9 / 10.0 - Marvel's Spider-Man
Sep 8, 2018

Marvel's Spider-Man leans heavily on the tried-and-tested open-world formula, to its benefit and its loss. While it apes those that came before at every turn, it does so in such a way that it doesn't even matter - it's a beautiful Spider-Man game that tells its own story while delivering gameplay that's familiar but fine-tuned. Spend a few minutes swinging around and you'll barely care for the game's shortcomings. This isn't just the best Spider-Man game to do - it's the best super-hero game thus far.

7.9 / 10.0 - The American Dream
Mar 15, 2018

The American Dream is silly from start to finish. Its over-the-top commentary will no doubt rub some the wrong way, but for those of us with a modicum of intelligence, The American Dream is a silly gallery shooter that just happens to mock American gun culture.
