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.

8 / 10.0 - The Gallery
Sep 23, 2022

I really enjoyed The Gallery. For a while now I have found the FMV genre a great palate cleanser between bigger, more gameplay-heavy titles. The story here is good, and it plays out with mostly good acting from a recognisable cast. Certain areas of the story can be picked at, and depending on your decisions you may not get the ending that you want, but I think you’ll enjoy the ride.

8 / 10.0 - Trek to Yomi
May 13, 2022

Trek to Yomi has its issues, but as a package I loved it. The gameplay has its shortcomings for sure and there is even the odd moment when the artistic direction negatively affects the gameplay such as wide shots. But the presentation is up there with the most stylish games ever created and for that alone it’s one I recommend playing.

8 / 10.0 - Slipstream
Apr 21, 2022

Slipstream is an excellent throwback to arcade racers of the late 1980s. It may have a limited selection of cars, but it makes up for that with a host of modes, some beautiful vistas, addictive gameplay and a soundtrack that compliments the action on-screen perfectly. If you have any nostalgia for old school racers then at £7.39 you cannot go wrong with this one!

8 / 10.0 - Ghostwire: Tokyo
Apr 3, 2022

Ghostwire Tokyo started off more linear than I expected, funnelling you through corridors and streets while introducing you to its insane world and creative ideas. The story could have been more memorable for sure, but this is a game that will be remembered for its setting. Tango Gameworks had a lot of ideas in mind when creating this game. Some worked, and some fell a little short. But overall, I really enjoyed my time with it and expect it to grow a cult following over time.

All adds up to is FIFA 22 being the best it has been in years. Certainly in the Frostbite era. Changes to modes are oftentimes minimal, but at this point, it really is hard to knock a game that offers more modes than almost any other game on the market. Instead this year, EA has focused on what matters most – the gameplay. Subtle changes and additions all over the place have resulted in the number one sports game in the world finally, once again, feeling like a true representation of the sport.

Astria Ascending is a good RPG that is quite easy to recommend despite its obvious shortcomings. While you’re able to adjust the difficulty, including removing most of the challenge if you want, the game isn’t holding your hand when it comes to quests and exploration - and thus it may not be for everyone.

As yet another fantastic JRPG from Bandai Namco, Tales of Arise is a great entry in the long-running series - and one that should please players both old and new.

Life is Strange: True Colors is a rollercoaster that deals with a full range of emotions. The story is solid and well laid out, but the superb cast of supporting characters is what sets the game apart. Follow every instinct and take in all that Haven Springs has to offer, you will not regret it!

Golf Club Wasteland is one of the surprise Indie hits of 2021. A beautiful art style, heartwarming narrative, great soundtrack and fun gameplay loop combined with excellent level design all combine to make this a bonafide hit.

8 / 10 - Fuser
Dec 5, 2020

Fuser is a great addition to the music genre. It has so many great tracks and does an excellent job of making you feel, and sound, like a pro. Given the full retail price, it is possible that the game fails to find an audience long term, but I hope that isn’t the case because Harmonix has created something kinda special here.

With the base game, four expansions and countless new items added to the hospital administrator sim, Two Point Hospital: JUMBO Edition is tremendous value - and tremendous fun!

Disco Elysium is a truly unique, narrative-driven point-and-click RPG that puts you in the shoes of a detective caught in the middle of a murder investigation… and so, so much more. While not without flaws, it’s well worth playing for those looking for a deeper story - and maybe even deeper meaning.

Both the Darkside Detective and its sequel 'A Fumble in the Dark' are superb games. The characters, humour and outstanding graphics all combine to make one of the most memorable point & click games in recent memory. Trophy glitches aside, both of these games are must-buys!

Mass Effect Legendary Edition might just offer a new look at some older games, but it still stands tall as one of the best and most memorable RPG series around.

Sniper Elite VR is a blast to play. Not every idea lands, but the sniping and killcam more than carry the load. With an ample amount of levels to tackle, complete with challenges and high scores to chase, this should keep you busy for a while.

F1 2021 is yet another strong racing title from Codemasters, that not only delivers a fantastic experience for fans of both the genre and sport, but also offers the perhaps most accessible racing title to date.

8.5 / 10.0 - Evil Dead: The Game
May 30, 2022

Evil Dead: The Game blew away my expectations. As a fan of the series I was both excited and worried going in. Could an Evil Dead game would be done right in 2022? The answer is a resounding yes. This is absolutely the best example of an asymmetric multiplayer game to date and one that fans of the series and horror fans in general should check out.

Super Perils of Baking is a tough and rewarding 2D platformer that will challenge you every step of the way. The beautiful 16-bit visuals, catchy soundtrack and tight platforming are all wrapped up in a superb price point. Highly recommended.
