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...

Board Game Review: Star Wars – Dark Side Rising

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: Knight Squad

As an absolutely mental 8 player game, Knight Squad sits on an awkward knife edge depending on what you're after and how many people you've got around to play with. A range...

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...

Board Game Review: Poetry for Neanderthals

1

From the same team who came up with the bonkers Exploding Kittens, Poetry for Neanderthals is another brilliant, easy to play game that causes unimaginable stress and lets you smack people round...

Review: Liberated

Liberated is told as a graphic novel, with panels that come to life at certain points which is where you play the game. It’s a cool effect and when I heard about...

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: Railway Empire

One of the great things about being a dad to a young boy is being able to play with all those awesome toys that I loved when I was younger, with no...

Review: Fly Punch Boom

I’m not really sure how to begin to explain what this game is like. Imagine an anime fight. If you haven’t seen one, it’s a lot of colours, over-exaggerated characters, explosions, disproportionate...

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...
