Jump Dash Roll's Reviews
The Wreck is an ambitious game with a twisting web of narrative that, despite a few frustrating gameplay moments, admittedly brought me close to tears by the end. Regardless of any technical issues, a good story about mothers, daughters, and the wrecks our relationships leave behind is always one worth experiencing.
Contraband Police isn't as morally grey or engaging as Papers, Please, but its defined gameplay loop evolves the bureaucracy simulator genre into something that's worth playing.
Football Manager 2023 - Console Edition has just enough of the full-fat Football Manager experience without making you feel overwhelmed. Being more streamlined than its PC brethren helps you crack through games and seasons giving console gamers the ability to take their teams to untold glory and riches.
A tough game that's sometimes a little too harsh for its own good, but if you're up for the challenge, there's a wonderfully touching gaming experience to be had here.
Dead Space (2023) is a remake done right. Whilst there's nothing wrong with giving a classic game a lick of paint, EA Motive went a step further and Dead Space is the richer for it.
If you have the patience to get through the first ten or so hours and tackle the multitude of systems it throws at you, Persona 4 Golden will reward you with a richly enjoyable JRPG experience, though the misogyny and homophobic content have really not aged it well.
Season's artstyle and gameplay are unique and fun, but because of its forgettable narrative and generic premise, it feels like yet another game that exists solely to win awards from Geoff Keighley.
With its unique take on naval combat and plundering-focused narrative, Tortuga - A Pirate's Tale isn't the greatest simulation of a swashbuckler's life, but it tries hard and is worth playing for anyone who wants to give their sea legs a solid workout.
Even if it does get wrapped up in its own mechanics at times, Children of Silentown is a charmingly creepy point-and-click adventure with lots of lore and plenty of heart.
Although The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Next-Gen Update isn't an especially noteworthy upgrade, the base game is so superb that the few things it does add are more than welcome.
Goat Simulator 3 is dumb, dotty, and through some fluke of gaming-related evolution, incredibly enjoyable.
God of War: Ragnarok throws almost the entire cadre of remaining Norse gods at the beardy one and the result is an incremental but still spectacular step up from 2018's title, refining the existing systems and loading the game with a dense narrative that satisfies more often than it distracts.
Hubris' narrative isn't anything to write back to Earth about, but its movement and graphics are both good enough to make it a worthwhile entry into the annals of VR gaming.
The Past Within is an intricate and extremely well designed puzzler which will scratch the itch of escape room devotees and fans of Rusty Lake's kooky series alike. The co-op only limitation may put some off, but this is a treat for those who are looking for a different kind of gaming experience.
Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord is, in spite of some missing features, a must-play experience for anyone who's remotely interested in kingdoms, claymores and combat.
Kylotonn should be commended for their work on the series for the last seven years, but post-launch issues combined with a game that doesn't quite feel right yet brings about a rather disappointing end to what could have been so much more.
Police Simulator: Patrol Officers is boring, morally straightforward and passively buggy, but there's still some fun to be found in its simplistic simulator-based gameplay.
The Oregon Trail is a fun and simplistic survival-em-up that ultimately does little to justify its high price in the wake of more modern entries into the genre.
A Little to the Left is a short, charming puzzle game that has some minor mechanical issues; however, if you're looking to play a laid-back, casual title to unwind, you're likely to enjoy it regardless.
A slow-burn psychological experience which taps into the tropes of folk horror with precision, and leaves a truly memorable mark on your subconscious.
