Shovel Knight review

Shovel Knight Review

September 12, 2014 | by Vince Shuley

I launched into Shovel Knight with some pretty hefty expectations given the buzz about it being one of the standout indie titles of 2014. Catchy chiptunes, uber-hard platform mechanics, old school rescue-the-princess storyline re-imagined with shovels instead of swords…

Metro Redux review

Metro Redux Review

September 9, 2014 | by Adam Vjestica

There’s a reason I don’t watch the news. Terrorist threat this, unstoppable virus that. It’s a never ending onslaught of misery and fear that can turn any optimist into a bitter, disenchanted individual…

Risen 3

Risen 3: Titan Lords Review

September 5, 2014 | by Rhys Wood

The Risen series has, thus far, been an unfortunate exercise in mediocrity. It’s quite sad because its setting and worlds often have a ton of potential, but each game has smacked of rushing to meet a deadline that it never really seems to hit its stride…

Sacred 3 review

Sacred 3 Review

August 5, 2014 | by Mike Slater

Since 2008’s top-down action-RPG Sacred 2: Fallen Angel, series developers Ascaron sadly went into administration and handed the reins over to former publishers Deep Silver, who had interests in developing a sequel…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Free To Play Film Review

March 26, 2014 | by Vince Shuley

I wasn’t quite sure what to make of this when it popped up on my Steam Update News feed. Valve, one of the gaming industry’s biggest hitters, has made a film…
