Free Games Preview: October 2020

It’s crazy to think this is the last month of free games before the next generation hits. So what way to send off the last-gen? Let’s see what Sony and Microsoft have...

Review: Inertial Drift

We’ve had twin stick shooters, so what about twin stick racers? That’s the driving thought behind Inertial Drift, an arcade racer all about, obviously, drifting.

Described as a...

Review: Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1+2

How often do you sit and play a game, almost completely in one sitting? Every level, every goal. Listened to probably louder than is safe, audibly speaking. What about one that...

Review: PGA Tour 2K21

There's an interesting, inherent beauty in golf. It's not a sport I've spent much time obsessing over, but the courses themselves are always works of art, even down to the lower level...

Review: Wasteland 3

Wasteland 3 is a large game, upwards of 60 hours to fully finish it I’ve heard. I can see that - I spent the best part of 30 minutes designing...

Review: Relicta

It's the Moon, Jim, but not as we know it. We've had quite a few games based on the Moon over the last few years, but it tends to be a "real"...

Review: Pistol Whip

Rhythm games aren't exactly in heavy supply on the PSVR, but what we've got has been very decent so far. Both Beat Saber and Audica are great games, the former being a...

Review: EA Sports UFC 4

I’ve played a lot of UFC 3. A couple of runs through the career mode, including the highest difficulty and when I checked my online games, it totally nearly 5,000 games over...

Review: Destroy All Humans!

Back in 2005, Destroy all Humans! gave us comedic aliens invading earth and lobotomising all humans. In 2020, that concept feels like a lovely respite from the dumpster fire that...

Review: Superliminal

Knowing nothing going into Superliminal, the best way to describe it would be to say ‘it’s a bit like Portal’ and I mean that in the most complimentary of ways....

Review: Neon Abyss

The first weapon I collected was a cat that fires laser beams from its face.

Just let that register for a moment. It gives you some idea of...

Review: Assetto Corsa Competizione

I'm a massive fan of racing games, and whether it's a single category like F1 or a multi-spec game like Gran Turismo, there's nothing better than taking to the track and getting...

Review: Desperados 3

A cowboy stealth action game? You had me at ‘cowboy stealth action’.  Desperados 3 is the follow up to, err, Desperados 2 but it’s a prequel, so you don’t need to...

Review: F1 2020

Over the past few years Codemasters have been slowly refining the F1 games, adding the occasional new feature such as last year's F2 options, and tweaking an already successful formula to make...

Review: 1971 Project Helios

As a turn-based strategy title, I was immediately interested in 1971 Project Helios. What I didn’t expect was a blend of XCOM, Frostpunk and a beautiful cel-shaded art style.  The plot...

Review: Moving Out

It's impossible to talk about Moving Out without bringing Overcooked into the conversation. If you've ever played the absolutely mental local co-op cooking game, then you're all set for a dose of...

Review: Trailmakers

The idea of building your own vehicle out of a range of bits, letting you drive, race, fly, sail or any combination of them sounds great to me. With a Lego-obsessed son,...

Review: Maneater

An open-world shark RPG. I just need to reflect on those words I’ve written.  You’re a baby shark, and throughout the game, you’ll grow by levelling-up into a bigger shark. Your...
