Splatoon 2 Review

Platforms: Nintendo Switch

Despite being able to buy a Switch console earlier, I waited for the Splatoon 2 bundle before making the dive into Nintendo’s latest console. Having already played the game at the MCM Comic Con event in London earlier this year, I knew this was a must-have game for the Switch. Now that I have had chance to play the full experience I can honestly say that impulsive, first reaction has not been proved wrong as Splatoon 2 has taken over much of my time playing games!

Tekken 7 Review

Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC

Tekken was my first fighting game experience. Playing the original game and Tekken 2 on the original PlayStation brings back good memories and the game has evolved since then to become one of the best fighting games around. There will always be some people who prefer Street Fighter or Mortal Combat or any other host of fighting games but I will always come back to Tekken. It’s the familiarity that is welcoming about the game, I can always come back to the game, train up and get a real sense of satisfaction from beating up other player. But something in this latest game something feels different and not necessarily for the better. Continue reading “Tekken 7 Review”

Wipeout Omega Collection Review

wipeout omega collection review

Platforms: PS4

Remasters are not usually something that get me excited but the Wipeout series was far enough into the ‘classics’ category to make it an interesting proposition. Having not played too much Wipeout as a child, but having played enough to remember how much fun it could be, I was primed and ready to be proven wrong with my possibly cynical opinion of remastered games. Who doesn’t want to maneuverer around wild and futuristic tracks in a hovering spacecraft whilst trying to attack enemy vehicles and stay in one piece! The best thing is there are 3 games in 1 here so you can enjoy Wipeout 2048, Wipeout HD and Wipeout Fury. Continue reading “Wipeout Omega Collection Review”

Little Nightmares Review

Little Nightmares

Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC

The first time I ever saw any footage of Bandai Namco’s gruesome puzzle-platformer, Little Nightmares, was at the Golden Joysticks 2016. The trailer appeared on a big screen and from that point I have been following the development of this game very closely. Sharing a similar dark theme to INSIDE and Limbo, games which I enjoyed a lot, it was easy to draw those comparisons and assume the game would deliver the same experience. In actual fact, comparing Little Nightmares to those games would be doing it a disservice, not necessarily because it is a better game but because it delivers an additional experience that was not as obvious in the Playdead’s titles.

Astroneer Review

Platforms: Xbox One, PC

Only recently have I truly started to enjoy exploration based survival games but when I first heard about Astroneer, it sounded like a game worthy of investing some hours into. The game is in pre-alpha still after releasing in December 2016 and it has developed nicely since it launched with bug fixes and some additional content. What is underlying here though it that the game is thoroughly enjoyable for anyone who has a wonderment with exploring space and the great beyond! But is this the games only appeal?
