Curse of the Dead Gods

Xbox Series X
9.00
Mick FraserFeb 23, 2021
Curse of the Dead Gods is an excellent rogue-like, and the massive variety of curses, weapons and buffs creates a different experience each time.

Main Assembly

PC
8.50
Chris WhiteFeb 23, 2021
Main Assembly offers a deep building system that allows you to create any type of robot you want, providing some beautiful worlds to explore in.

Neptunia Virtual Stars

PS4
7.00
Lyle CarrFeb 23, 2021
Neptunia Virtual Stars is an enjoyable JRPG with a great setting and virtual world concept. If you don’t mind that the story is unintelligible and some particularly gross sexualisation, you’ll find this to be one of the more entertaining entries in the series.

Pumpkin Jack

PS4
8.00
Lyle CarrFeb 23, 2021
Pumpkin Jack is a throwback to a simpler time, where mascot platformers were popular and voice acting was scarce. If you’ve missed collectibles, minigames and epic boss fights, this is one creepy caper you won’t want to miss.

Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos

Switch
6.00
Lyle CarrFeb 22, 2021
Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos is fun with friends, but control issues, irritating traps and a lack of fresh ideas make it hard to recommend for solo players.

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury

Switch
10.0
Adam CookFeb 10, 2021
Despite multiplayer now being online, it still feels superfluous, but otherwise Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury might just be one of those fabled "perfect" games.

Blue Fire

Switch
8.00
Mick FraserFeb 09, 2021
Blue Fire is an excellent adventure game with just enough flavour pinched from a variety of games across a plethora of genres and platforms. It’s a wonder that it doesn’t feel derivative, and instead manages to stand apart as a joyous adventure through a dark yet well-designed world.

Kinetic Edge

PC
6.00
James BentleyFeb 09, 2021
Kinetic Edge feels like its fighting with itself just a little too much. While having more modes makes the initial menu screen a bit more vibrant - like Kinetic Edge’s visuals - that vibrance becomes tedious and a little wasted

Little Nightmares II

PS5
9.00
Chris WhiteFeb 09, 2021
Little Nightmares II tells a beautiful yet fragile story of friendship, sadness, and searching for the light among the darkness. The puzzles are well-designed, the music is stunning, and the visuals are on another level.

Persona 5 Strikers

PS4
8.00
Chris WhiteFeb 09, 2021
Persona 5 Strikers is a superb follow-up to Persona 5, even if it isn't quite the sequel people were hoping for. The same quality of writing is still present, and the combat is so compelling throughout that I never grew bored of fighting Shadows.

Persona 5 Strikers

Switch
7.50
Chris WhiteFeb 09, 2021
Although it runs and looks worse than on PC and PS4, Persona 5 Strikers is still fantastic on Switch, with a great story, superb combat, and more Phantom Thieves, which is always going to be a positive for me.

The Nioh Collection

PS5
9.50
Mick FraserFeb 09, 2021
The Nioh Collection as a whole is an amazing experience for those who crave a massive, steep, yet incredibly rewarding RPG challenge.

Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood

PS5
5.00
Mick FraserFeb 04, 2021
Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood has potential, but is little more than a C-tier experience that's unlikely to stick in anyone's memory for long.

Control: Ultimate Edition

PS5
9.00
Mick FraserFeb 02, 2021
On PS5, Control is sublime. The atmosphere is almost palpable, helped by sound direction that keeps you on edge all the time.

Gods Will Fall

Switch
7.50
Mick FraserJan 29, 2021
It’s a solid hack and slash adventure that will satisfy your craving for challenge while it lasts – it’s just a shame it doesn’t last longer.

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox

PS4
8.00
Lyle CarrJan 29, 2021
Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is a really enjoyable JRPG, with frenetic combat that never gets old. There’s so much to do in the city of Balduq, and exploring it with your Monstrum powers is a blast. There are some technical issues in open areas and a few sections are less exciting than others, but it’s hard to deny the amount of quality content to sink your teeth into in Adol’s latest adventure.

Colossus Down

Switch
5.50
Lyle CarrJan 28, 2021
The world of Colossus Down is truly special in its own twisted way, but the beat-em-up gameplay lets the game down. If you’ve played the other games in this dark series you might find some fun here, but in a month where Scott Pilgrim was re-released it’s hard to recommend Colossus Down.

The Medium

Xbox Series X
8.50
Chris WhiteJan 27, 2021
The Medium is without a doubt Bloober Team's biggest game to date, and it is easily one of its best. The story is captivating as are its characters, and the uneasy journey you take through it feels much like if Stranger Things was set in the Alan Wake universe.

Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy

PS4
8.50
Lyle CarrJan 26, 2021
Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends and the Secret Fairy is a lighthearted JRPG, with an incredibly compelling gameplay loop of crafting and leveling up.

Cyber Shadow

PC
9.50
Lyle CarrJan 25, 2021
Cyber Shadow is a superb action platformer, that feels just how you remember the best NES games felt. Controlling Shadow feels perfect, the soundtrack is exquisite, and there are some phenomenal powers to unlock.

SOLAS 128

Switch
8.50
Lyle CarrJan 25, 2021
SOLAS 128 takes mirror puzzles to a whole new level, with a host of different light-based mechanics and a sprinkle of synth magic. 

Turrican Flashback

Switch
5.50
Sean SmithJan 25, 2021
A compilation of some good and some average games, but given the historic nature of them all, it'd have been nice to see a bit more effort put into this package.

RIDE 4

PS5
8.00
Chris WhiteJan 21, 2021
Ride 4 on PS5 is gorgeous. The textures are stunning, as are the bikes, and the improvements to how it runs are more than noticeable. That said, it still suffers from its tricky handling around corners and an irritating penalty system.

Warframe

PS5
9.00
Mick FraserJan 20, 2021
It's difficult not to recommend Warframe on PS5 to anyone who likes sci-fi settings, frenetic action, and deep, engrossing RPG mechanics.

Golden Force

Switch
8.00
Lyle CarrJan 19, 2021
Golden Force is a very entertaining 2d action adventure that’s well worth playing if you’re able to handle its punishing difficulty. The variety of enemies is ideal and the platforming is great, but there’s no denying that being forced back to the beginning after one too many hits is frustrating.
