As a public transport pleb, I’ve become accustomed to buses and rely upon them to get from A to B. Bus Simulator from Still Alive Studios gives me the opportunity to flex my logistic muscles and run a company from scratch. Originally a PC release last year, this niche title […]

Bus Simulator – PS4 Review


Mutazione is described by Danish developers Die Gute Fabrik as a “mutant soap opera” and that’s a pretty good description but before we get into all of that, there’s something you need to know.  This is one of those games, an indie game about feelings where not very much happens […]

Mutazione – PS4 Review


From publisher Aquaplus and developer Tamsoft comes a game we’d usually have left for our resident visual novel expert, Gareth. We liked the look of it though, so took a punt. In this case the ZAN subtitle is Japanese for ‘slash’, denoting that this is a departure of sorts from […]

Utawarerumono: ZAN – PS4 Review



GreedFall is an action role-playing game from Spiders. They’ve released a few over the years though I have to admit I’ve not played any of them, though some did interest me. Their most recent attempt combines influences from the 17th century as well as fantastical elements and has you colonising […]

GreedFall – PS4 Review


Despite being a sport in decline, the NASCAR Heat series appears to be picking up pace as a competent simulation series dedicated to America’s favourite oval racing championship. Building on last year’s effort, Monster Games are hoping NASCAR Heat 4 can keep the momentum going. NASCAR Heat 4‘s handling doesn’t […]

NASCAR Heat 4 – PS4 Review


I was once told I looked like a young Bill Murray, so when a VR sequel to the 1993 film Groundhog Day is released who better to review it? Someone who has seen the film more than once a while ago? No, shut up, I’ll do it. Groundhog Day: Like […]

Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son – PSVR Review



During my many years of gaming, I have played a lot of scrolling beat-em-ups. This genre has been the cornerstone of retro gaming, titles such as Streets of Rage, Final Fight and Double Dragon taking top billing for what are the benchmark of classic that prevails to this day. In […]

River City Girls – PS4 Review


Post War Dreams is a slightly strange name, one that makes you think this particular run and gunner will have some sort of emotional content to it and the game’s blurb does talk about it being a “story-rich” affair but this 2.5D shooter isn’t a game that is rich in […]

Post War Dreams – PS4 Review


Distraint is a short but bittersweet 2D adventure game from one man developer Jesse Makkonen which has been ported to the PS4, and Vita, by Ratalaika Games, the Finnish perpetual publishers who we seem to be reviewing every week.  You already know what they are about, quick and easy platinums, […]

Distraint – PS4 Review



We didn’t really know much about Himno before starting it. And after having unlocked platinum trophies on both PS4 and Vita, we’re not much better off in that regard. The double platinum being your first clue that this is published by Ratalaika, developed on PC by Madrid based solo developer […]

Himno – PS4 Review


Torchlight II is a port of a 2012 Diablo clone which was itself the sequel to the 2009 original.  Although the series has always debuted on the PC, Torchlight did eventually make it across to the previous gen of consoles and I played through it on the Xbox 360.  The sequel has now […]

Torchlight II – PS4 Review


This reviewer loved Tearaway on Vita and subsequently Tearaway Unfolded on PS4. The creative lead for both of those is a gentleman called Rex Crowle. As well as Atoi’s two adventures, he worked on Little Big Planet and several Lionhead games including Fable and Black & White. Along with fellow Media […]
