Night Call

PC
7.50
Jimmy DonnellanJul 19, 2019
Technical and pacing issues aside, the writing of Night Call is what makes it such a fascinating and, at times, enthralling game. Sit back with a cup of coffee and become an unofficial therapist for a few hours with this dark descent into Paris.

Redeemer: Enhanced Edition

Xbox One
6.00
Nathan GibsonJul 19, 2019
Redeemer is a deeply flawed game that manages to provide moments of fun but too often feels frustrating and under-developed.

Etherborn

PS4
8.00
W.B. MasonJul 18, 2019
Etherborn is a beautiful and innovative puzzle-platformer that can often be headache inducing, but even so it is very much worth your time.

LOST ORBIT: Terminal Velocity

PC
7.00
Jay KriegerJul 16, 2019
Lost Orbit: Terminal Velocity is an above-average arcade title with a plethora of content and enough challenge to test completionists and speed freaks alike. Sharp handling and attempts at forming a narrative put it a peg above middle of the road competitors, but a lack of defining level characteristics makes it a speedy, but blurry intergalactic journey.

Summer Catchers

PC
5.00
Brian StasiukaitisJul 15, 2019
Despite the beautiful pixel art and inspired soundtrack, Summer Catchers drops the ball with its RNG-heavy gameplay and monotonous quests.

Streets of Rogue

PS4
9.00
Brian StasiukaitisJul 15, 2019
Streets of Rogue has the heart and complexity rivaling any major release, even without a story to back it up. If you’ve got the hard drive space, there’s no reason not to pick it up immediately.

They Are Billions

PS4
8.00
Jimmy DonnellanJul 11, 2019
Though sometimes clunky controls and missing features will have you reaching for the keyboard, They Are Billions on PS4 is still a descent into madness that will have you hooked if you let it.

Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet

Switch
8.50
W.B. MasonJul 11, 2019
Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet may be a short game, but it is one high in quality. The love of those classic point and click games is apparent here and Alasdair Beckett-King and Application Systems have not only paid homage to the genre, but built upon it. The Fowl Fleet is a lot of fun and filled with bucket-loads of charm. If you like point and click games, or even if you like quirky, fun titles, then this game is definitely worth a look.

Blazing Chrome

Switch
8.00
Ashley BatesJul 11, 2019
Blazing Chrome isn’t some grand reinvention of the shoot ‘em up genre at large, but for the most part, it does a masterful job of utilising the genre’s best conventions. Definitely worth checking out.

Sea of Solitude

PC
7.00
Claire CorbelJul 08, 2019
Compelling voicework and contrasting visuals define this game as more of an experience than a challenge. If you are willing to overlook the few gameplay features in favour of an impactful story, however, Sea of Solitude is definitely worth playing through.

Super Mario Maker 2

Switch
9.00
Ashley BatesJul 03, 2019
The current lack of Amiibo Support and one or two needed improvements to the online modes mean it isn’t “perfect”, but Super Mario Maker 2 is the ultimate package for both casual and dedicated Mario fans. Absolutely brilliant.

Irony Curtain: From Matryoshka with Love

PS4
8.00
Darryl EdgeJun 28, 2019
While Irony Curtain doesn’t add anything particularly new to the point-and-click genre, satirical humour, likeable characters and fun gameplay make this a puzzle game definitely worth your time.

Samurai Shodown

Xbox One
8.00
Ashley BatesJun 27, 2019
Though some weak modes dampen the overall package, Samurai Shodown might just offer the best pure fighting game experience in recent memory, for both veterans and newcomers alike.

Monster Jam Steel Titans

Xbox One
3.00
W.B. MasonJun 27, 2019
Monster Jam: Steel Titans is not a good game, and goes from being meh to tiresome very quickly.

F1 2019 Anniversary Edition

Xbox One
8.00
Nathan GibsonJun 26, 2019
F1 2019 is without a doubt the definitive Formula 1 gaming experience. With upgrades and improvements made to practically every aspect of the game, F1 2019 looks stunning, and gives driving enthusiasts plenty to get to grips with.

The Sinking City

Xbox One
5.00
Zack StoutJun 25, 2019
It’s very hard to call The Sinking City a “good game,” all things considered, but it was definitely a game worth making. Keep an eye out for future improvements and hopefully someday it’ll be a game worth playing.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled

PS4
8.50
Jimmy DonnellanJun 24, 2019
While its initially harsh difficulty may ruin your happy memories of the original in a hurry, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is kart racing nirvana with an abundance of content to dive into that makes it more than just an exercise in nostalgia.

Judgment

PS4
8.00
Nick MeekhamJun 24, 2019
While mechanically flawed, Judgment bridges the gap between new and old Yakuza fans marvellously and points towards a confident future for a new franchise. Court adjourned.

My Friend Pedro

PC
8.00
Jimmy DonnellanJun 20, 2019
Even with an underwhelming final third and a paper-thin plot holding it back, My Friend Pedro is a fruity and exhilarating ride.

Mainlining

Switch
3.00
W.B. MasonJun 20, 2019
Its fantastic art and concept cannot help Mainlining on Switch from being an absolute chore to play.

Home Sweet Home

PS4
4.50
Jimmy DonnellanJun 18, 2019
Tiring trial and error gameplay undermines everything Home Sweet Home tries to do, any tension giving away to frustration long before the credits suddenly roll.

Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Don't Dry

PS4
7.00
Darryl EdgeJun 13, 2019
Though it has its faults, if you like sex jokes and puzzles tied into a decent point-and-click dating adventure, then Larry Laffer’s latest outing is the game for you.

Super Skelemania

PS4
5.00
Jay KriegerJun 13, 2019
A speedrunner’s delight masked as a Metroidvania that does little to differentiate itself from the titans of its genre.

Vectronom

Switch
8.00
W.B. MasonJun 10, 2019
Vectronom is one of the best console puzzlers I’ve played over the last few years, even if it’s one I doubt I’ll return unless there’s some DLC that adds extra levels or modes to the game. While it has Super Hexagon’s satisfying frustration, Vectronom lacks its high score rush to keep me coming back.

DayZ

PS4
2.00
Jimmy DonnellanJun 07, 2019
Dated, buggy, and irredeemably wearisome, DayZ on PS4 offers an experience as empty and uninteresting as Chernarus itself that was certainly not worth waiting nearly half a decade for.
