Agent of Mayhem review

Agents of Mayhem may look familiar and don’t worry, you’re not going mad, this is in fact made by Volition, the same guys who made the fun and anarchic Saints Row games and is a spin-off so in that respect, you’ll be in familiar here. Expect over-the-top moments, a host of wise-cracking characters with ‘top bantz’ and lots of things to shoot up and destroy in an open world. The plot here is basically a pastiche on something out of a Bond movie. A bad dude called Doctor Babylon and his Legion are intent on destroying Seoul in South Korea...

Get Even review

Get Even may look like an FPS at first glance but this is definitely not what it first seems when you switch it on and begin playing. With the screen play being written by a couple of the guys that have written for mentalist Derren Brown, you’re welcomed into a world of intrigue, tech and more twists and turns than the last 6 months of world politics where you just happen to hold a gun in your hand. You play the role of a guy called Black, a hired gun who, in the opening prologue, infiltrates an abandoned warehouse to...

Rime review

Don’t you just hate it when you wake up on a desert island not knowing who you are or why you got there? Must have been a rough night! That’s exactly what’s happened to this cel-shaded critter and over a game lasting around 6 hours you have to move him around the island and its associated towers and indoor areas to find out why you are there, who you are and just who that person in a red cape is who’s always just out of reach! Rime is essentially a 3rd-person puzzle game. There isn’t a tonne of peril in...

Injustice 2 Review

Most fighting games I find a little bit ‘meh’ but the ones I really do like are the ones made by NetherRealm who had great success rebooting Mortal Kombat and with the previous Injustice game featuring DC Superheroes using a similar fighting system. What’s great about these games is the seamless transition between cut-scenes and the fighting action. This isn’t just some disjointed voice over and animation over a short series of fights for each character, but a properly thought out story where you play as the characters as they are introduced and have to fulfil their part of the...

Prey Review

Prey might initially confuse gamers who remember the original FPS back in the day where, as a Cherokee, you’re abducted on board an alien space ship and can summon your ancestral spirits to help you. It was a lot of fun, then Prey 2 was announced which seemed radically different and was canned, and now there’s another Prey game here in 2017. Well, apart from the fact that you’re on a spaceship, that’s the only similarity here and it’s nothing to do with the original game or its canned sequel. The game starts off really well. You wake up and...

Little Nightmares Review

Horror games are something I love just as much as movies, and Little Nightmares is something of a departure fro m the usual in your face scares in that at first glance it looks like some kind of kids platform game. Aw, look at the cute little kid in a yellow raincoat running through the…oh hang on a minute, that’s a meat grinder, and why are those shoes just lying on the ground, who do they belong to? What are the things in the little paper hats and why is there a creepy man with very long arms stalking me?...
