Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle Review

Platforms: Nintendo Switch

With the recently announced Donkey Kong DLC coming Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, this seemed like the perfect time to revisit the game and share my thoughts. This is no ordinary Mario game as the Mushroom Kingdom has been mixed together with Ubisoft’s Rabbids and for many it is unknown whether this makes for a good mix. My first impressions probably matched many others, am I going to like a Mario game that doesn’t appear to be anything like a ‘standard’ Mario game? Of course, the word standard is used loosely since Mario likes to dabble in various other activities such as Tennis, Soccer, Olympics Games amongst others. That said, my initial concerns soon dissipated. Continue reading “Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle Review”


Sea Of Thieves Review

Platforms: Xbox One, PC

Most gamers may say that Microsoft have fell from grace ever since the Xbox One launched and that Sea of Thieves has been their first opportunity to regain some of their former glory by introducing a truly unique and fun exclusive game. Early impressions would indicate success for this open world pirate game considering Sea Of Thieves has become the fastest selling Xbox IP of this generation. It even topped the UK retail charts which is no mean feat considering the sales of Xbox consoles versus the PS4 and even the Switch to some degree. However, there is still mixed opinion within the gaming community as to whether this is a game worth playing. Here are my thoughts… Continue reading “Sea Of Thieves Review”

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Review

Platforms: Nintendo Switch

I was a late comer to the Nintendo Switch but after pre-ordering the console in May 2017, I instantly started looking forward to what else was coming. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 stood out to me from Nintendo’s E3 presentation last year with huge open worlds to explore and lots of anime styled action and story to delve into! Essentially, it is your standard JRPG. After getting the game in December last year, it has taken approx. 3 months to complete the game and I have needed the past week to digest my thoughts. Here is  my verdict on Xenoblade Chronicles 2! Continue reading “Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Review”

Super Mario Odyssey Review

Platforms: Nintendo Switch

Having spent weeks away from scrawling my thoughts about video games I have returned to share my opinions about one of the biggest game releases of 2017. Super Mario Odyssey was a hugely anticipated title for the Nintendo Switch and was the straw that broke the camel’s back for many people who were still deciding to buy the latest Nintendo console. Whilst the principle of this Mario game did not falter (save Princess Peach from Bowser) the game introduced some new concepts coupled with the traditional open world platforming that many fans have missed since the days of Super Mario Galaxy or Super Mario Sunshine. Surely, this would be a recipe for success? Continue reading “Super Mario Odyssey Review”

Pokken Tournament DX Review

Platforms: Nintendo Switch

Currently I am going between a handful of games and one of those is Pokken Tournament DX on my Nintendo Switch. Having been a big Pokemon fan when I was younger, at least up until approx. Gen 3 was introduced, I was unsure if this game would still resonate with me. I questioned if my lack of knowledge of more recent Pokemon would put me at a disadvantage but I have found my experience with this game to be surprising, if only after a little dedication.

FIFA 18 Review

Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch
(Reviewed on Nintendo Switch)

FIFA 18 landed just a couple of weeks ago and whilst he dust may still be settling for many it is proving to be popular with many having soared to the top of the charts in many places. Whilst typically I would play this game on either Xbox One or PS4, this year I decided I would try out the game on Nintendo Switch. Despite there being some obvious differences between this Switch version and the other versions, there was an appeal about being able to play FIFA anywhere that really connected with me. But have EA scored a stunner this year? Continue reading “FIFA 18 Review”
