Transistor Review

Transistor Review

July 21, 2014 | by Vince Shuley

Supergiant Games have a special place in my personal “Who’s Who” of indie game developers. It was back when I reviewed their masterpiece action-RPG Bastion that I became an instant indie game advocate, enthralled with Logan Cunningham’s gruff narration and Darren Korb’s hypnotising soundtrack…

Nintendo Pocket Football Club review

Nintendo Pocket Football Club Review

July 17, 2014 | by Adam Vjestica

No one gave Akiba Aces a chance. And honestly, who in their right mind would? After all, this was a team of hapless no hopers; a rag tag bunch of below average players, struggling to stay relevant in the fast-moving world of professional football. Fan support was dwindling, the dried-out pitch was barely fit for purpose, and the notion of top division football was an unobtainable, almost cruel dream…

Light review

Light Review

July 15, 2014 | by Jonathan Trussler

Light is one of the most perfectly self-described games I’ve ever played. The entire focus of Light is avoiding the fluorescent streams of illumination that emanate from the square-shaped guards that patrol each level…

Tomodachi Life review

Tomodachi Life Review

July 7, 2014 | by Rhys Wood

It’s 4:45 pm on the island. A rap battle is taking place between Eiji Aonuma and Ganondorf. Elsewhere, Awesome Games Editor-in-Chief Adam Vjestica is farting alone in his apartment. Welcome to Tomodachi Life, one of the best non-games I have ever played…

worms battlegrounds review

Worms Battlegrounds Review

June 9, 2014 | by Joe Martin

Familiarity can be either a good or a bad thing depending on your point of view, and Worms Battlegrounds is a perfect example of this. On the one hand, it’s as fun and quirky as it ever was, because nothing much has changed since the series’ first entries. On the other hand, it feels just like every other Worms game you’ve ever played…

Mario Golf: World Tour review

Mario Golf: World Tour Review

May 20, 2014 | by Rhys Wood

It’s been ten years since the last Mario Golf title, Advance Tour, graced our GBAs with its charming role-playing presence, so it’s high time we were due another entry in the beloved Mario sports series. Thankfully, Camelot have stepped up to the tee once again with Mario Golf: World Tour on the 3DS…

War of the Vikings review

War Of The Vikings Review

May 1, 2014 | by Jonathan Trussler

In an ancestral mead hall in Scandanavia, a brave group of warriors take their axes and sing prayers to Odin. They assemble at the longboats with a lust for glory in their hearts…

Demon Gaze review

Demon Gaze Review

April 30, 2014 | by Rhys Wood

What I’ve really appreciated in the last couple of years in gaming is the sudden resurgence of rock-hard dungeon crawling RPGs. Etrian Odyssey IV remains one of my top 3DS games, consistently satisfying my gluttony for punishment…

LEGO The Hobbit Review

LEGO The Hobbit Review

April 29, 2014 | by Adam Vjestica

Everything looks better as LEGO. Seeing your favourite fictional characters or real-world items transformed into the iconic blocks and pieces most of us grew up with is a real joy to behold. Hell, I’d go as far to say that a LEGO Lindsay Lohan would be more appealing than her real-life counterpart…

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn review

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Review

April 23, 2014 | by Rhys Wood

My history with the Final Fantasy series has been rocky at best. I started with the remake of Final Fantasy III on the DS and absolutely loved it. I went on to love IV, VI and IX as my favourites in the series, but never really liked VII, VIII or X; XIII was seen by many fans as a complete abomination, too, for a number of reasons…

Kinect Sports Rivals review

Kinect Sports Rivals Review

April 16, 2014 | by Adam Vjestica

Kinect Sports Rivals isn’t going to change your perception of Microsoft’s clever camera. If you’re one of those people who unplugs their Kinect, hates the fact it’s bundled in with the console and utterly detests motion controls and voice commands then step aside because you will despise this game…

Goat Simulator review

Goat Simulator Review

April 10, 2014 | by Joe Martin

Goat Simulator is a tricky game to review. It’s the Sharknado of the current gaming world, a product that sets out to be awful and tries to have fun with it. The game is a joke, and that’s not just my critique…
