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?...

Mass Effect Andromeda Review

The original Mass Effect was one of my favourite game series to date and even though some people had trouble with the way it ended, I for one enjoyed the ride and was very much looking forward to Andromeda. This game takes humans to a brand new galaxy as they search for a new homeworld that just so happens to be a 600 year journey from the Milky Way. The game begins as you wake from hypersleep and choose to be one of the two Ryder twins, either male or female. Here you can customize your character, although I ended...

Ghost Recon Wildlands review

Ghost Recon Wildlands takes Tom Clancy’s franchise and gives it a new spin where it’s not based on future tech and linear missions where you’re deployed, get the job done and get out. This time you play as one of four Ghosts as you enter the narco-state of Bolivia to take down a cartel leader called El Sueno. This guy’s a bad dude covered in tattoos and seemingly in fashion because cartels seem to be ‘cool’ right now, but of course you can’t just go straight in and get him, you have to take down the faction leaders that lead...
