Metro GameCentral's Reviews

Jan 31, 2023

A poignant, slow-paced but ultimately shallow exploration of memory and legacy in a changing world, that also manages to be the world's first cycle-based walking simulator.

8 / 10 - Hi-Fi Rush
Jan 30, 2023

A very welcome surprise, that is one of the most enjoyably unique games on Xbox and one of the best rhythm action games in a very long time 0 as well as having arguably the best cel-shaded graphics ever seen.

An excellent remake of a not-quite-classic survival horror, that nevertheless makes a convincing argument for the continuation of the series.

What starts as a sweet and endearing homage to 90s gaming evolves into a sophisticated and, at times, dark exploration of two troubled youths, in one of the best indie games of the year.

4 / 10 - Colossal Cave
Jan 20, 2023

A misguided attempt to recreate one of gaming's oldest and most influential classics, that's let down by outdated visuals and prehistoric gameplay elements.

A more traditional Fire Emblem experience than Three Houses, but one that's filled with fun new features and emphasises deep and varied gameplay over dating mini-games.

Easily the best One Piece video game there's ever been and a genuinely fun and innovative Japanese role-player in its own right.

The best Rampage sequel that never was features entertaining amounts of 8-bit style violence and, while unashamedly shallow, proves there's life in the old coin-op yet.

The best sequel to Chrono Trigger there's never been, with a pseudo-Japanese role-player that maintains a delicate balance between retro homage and modern indie game.

Another great indie detective game that not only makes solving crimes fun and interesting but has some surprisingly good storytelling to tie everything together.

8 / 10 - NORCO
Dec 21, 2022

One of the best story-based games of the year, with a complex mix of dystopian sci-fi, religious meditation, and a razor-sharp script.

6 / 10 - Tinykin
Dec 20, 2022

A purposefully under-designed platformer that takes several cues from Pikmin but forges ahead with its own distinctive take on a platforming comfort game.

Fans of gripping mysteries and intriguing puzzles will love the eclectic storytelling, but not necessarily the pervy humour, in Kotaro Uchikoshi's most fascinating oddity.

It's ugly as hell, and initially quite slow, but Vampire Survivors is the most compelling dual-stick shooter for years, even if it doesn't actually use dual sticks.

8 / 10 - DRAINUS
Dec 16, 2022

The best 2D shooter for several years and a fantastic homage to the genre, with some of the best pixel art graphics of the year.

5 / 10 - High on Life
Dec 15, 2022

A colourful, silly and deliberately over-the-top first person shooter, with severely undercooked gunplay and a sense of humour that will test the patience of even Rick and Morty fans.

An excellent sequel that marries Metroidvania style exploration with a dizzying array of new combat mechanics, to make one of the best roguelike experiences of this or any year.

7 / 10 - Swordship
Dec 14, 2022

A fantastic mix of endless runner and racing game, which marries the aesthetics of WipEout with the challenge and difficulty of a hardcore roguelike.

Charming and relaxing is not how you'd describe the average action role-player but this wholesome Dragon Quest spin-off is an enjoyably undemanding, family friendly adventure.

This is likely to be the definitive version of a great game, and an excellent excuse to dive back into its gloriously rich and varied world, but at the moment it’s a bug-ridden mess that’s more trouble to play than the seven-year-old original. We’re sure by next Christmas it’ll all be running perfectly but all you get this year is a lump of 4K coal.
