Watch Dogs Legion is a great game. London is an excellent setting and the gameplay variation makes for a really fun experience. The recruit anyone mechanic is an interesting idea that works well if you are willing to overlook the awful lip-syncing and some odd-looking characters. If you enjoyed Watch Dogs 2 and don’t mind a game that is a little light on narrative, you will enjoy this third entry in the series.

Big Rumble Boxing is a fun and accessible arcade boxing game that brings everything that made Creed: Rise to Glory VR a hit back in 2018 to the masses. Just beware of the price tag and lack of online multiplayer.

Foreclosed does as much wrong as it does right, but overall I found myself intrigued enough by the world, story and unique design choices that I wanted to see it through. How much you value gameplay is likely to reflect your opinion on this one.

Overall, Scott Pilgrim vs The World is one of the better side-scrolling 2D beat 'em ups I have played. The difficulty, especially early on when you feel underpowered, remains an issue. The game is dripping with charm though and despite the frustrations it kept me coming back for more and wanting to fill out my upgrades with different characters. Hopefully, the online stability can improve, completing a worthwhile return for the once banished gem.

The Medium is a game with more highs than lows. Bloober Team has taken a definite step in the right direction with this latest venture and I look forward to seeing them build on these foundations.

Taxi Chaos is nostalgic arcade fun. For better, and for worse it takes the Crazy Taxi formula and modernises it without breaking new ground. Fans of the genre will find a lot to like here.

RetroMania Wrestling accomplishes its goal of being a worthy sequel to WrestleFest, adding fun fleshed out modes. A steep learning curve and harsh overall difficulty may force some to tap out early though.

- Pine
Mar 22, 2021

Pine offers a very unique simulation sandbox that can be fun to play around in. Unfortunately, a number of issues plague the experience, so budding adventurers should keep their expectations in check.

Paradise Lost tells an interesting tale in a beautiful and captivating setting. If you can get past the incredibly slow movement, there is plenty to enjoy here. Just don't expect much gameplay.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends offers mostly fun heists with friends and strangers alike. Despite technical issues and a general lack of content, there’s a lot of potential for good times ahead.

Replacing goats with pensioners and expanding the possibilities with better controls, more weapons and a literal bucket list of things to do makes this a sandbox worth exploring. Great price too!

A solid foundation that needs to be supported in order to keep fans interested long term. Speed golf is a gimmick that works, but won't be for everyone and a disappointing amount of content for single-player fans may leave some wanting, but the game really shines with others.

Within the Blade is a worthy entry in the 2D action-platformer genre and is definitely worth your time, but beware, there are other games that do each of the main hooks better.

Lawn Mowing Simulator is a breath of fresh air. A relaxing experience that pulls you in and shows how fun a seemingly mundane task can be. Unfortunately, frame rate issues and regular pop-in stop this from scoring higher.

7 / 10 - Olija
Jan 28, 2021

It was the fast-paced, gory combat and unique visual direction that first drew me to Olija, and while I enjoyed my time with it, there isn’t much here that hasn’t been done better elsewhere. I’m always impressed by games made by small teams and this is no different – just be sure to go in with proper expectations.

The Sorrowvirus: A Faceless Short Story is a game I am glad I checked out. I went in not knowing what to expect and came out with a story that stuck with me long after I rolled the credits all four times. It’s not without its shortcomings, but this is a great example of what a small team can accomplish on a limited budget.

7.5 / 10.0 - Ayo the Clown
Apr 25, 2022

I would absolutely recommend Ayo the Clown. I went in expecting little more than a functioning platformer, but Cloud M1 has put together a beautiful world, a cute cast of characters and a cracking soundtrack all topped off with some fun gameplay. This is the type of platformer that we don’t see enough of on PlayStation or Xbox and it is certainly a welcome addition!

7.5 / 10.0 - Pretty Girls Rivers
Apr 23, 2022

I recommend picking this one up. This title does play it safer in terms of anime girl outfits than some of the other entries and the soundtrack got on my nerves pretty early doors, but it’s nothing a mute button and a good podcast can’t solve. Speaking of – the latest episode of the Pure Dead Gaming podcast is available now, where we discuss this title among many other topics.

I have some mixed feelings. On the one hand, I adore Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water for its deeply old-fashioned control scheme and clunky gameplay. I love the rough-around-the-edges graphics that speak of a time that was slightly browner. I love the darkness of the storyline and the bleak personalities of the unfortunate characters. I love all these things, but my heart also longs for an improved version that controls better, looks better and sounds better. Maybe a new game in the series will take care of this longing, but until then we still have a very decent horror game that is well worth a stab.

7.5 / 10.0 - Far Cry 6
Oct 25, 2021

Far Cry is simply more of the same. Well, almost the same, as a bunch of systems have been expanded even further into RPG territory, and you have even more control over your gameplay than ever before. Despite all this, it still feels like more of the same. Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily. Far Cry 6 can still be a lot of fun. If you liked previous games in the series, particularly 3 and 4, then you’re bound to enjoy 6. There’s something comforting in the known. In the familiar. That being said, I definitely wouldn’t mind being surprised by whatever comes next.
