Mechs are awesome. Suiting up in a giant metal robot to stomp through the streets whilst battering monsters is an inherently fun idea. Modus Games and The Balance Inc. are combining to give their take on the mech brawler. Boasting a wide swath of characters, destructible environments and an interesting […]

Override: Mech City Brawl- PS4 Review

I’ve spoken a lot about modernised retro games in the past. If you don’t want to read through my previous reviews, then the general gist is that there is a lot of them and if you happen to be a fan of retro games and play enough titles with ‘Pixel’ […]

Desert Child – PS4 Review

Jagged Alliance has a long history. The first two games are seen as tactical classics but since then there have been multiple attempts to revive the franchise that have fallen flat. Now it’s the turn of Jagged Alliance: Rage! to try and bring the series back and maybe pave the […]

Jagged Alliance: Rage! – PS4 Review

We’re a little late with this review and that’s because you need to get a group of players together for this charming little puzzle game.  Melbits World is a PlayLink title which means that while the action all happens on the PS4, the players control it via mobile phones (via an […]

Melbits World – PS4 Review

GUNGRAVE VR U.N has just released for PSVR. GUNGRAVE VR has also released (read the review here before continuing with this one) and you can buy both with the GUNGRAVE VR: Loaded Coffin Edition bundle. Think of this as a DLC add-on for GUNGRAVE VR, even though they are two […]


GUNGRAVE VR has just released for PSVR. GUNGRAVE VR U.N has also released (read the review here) and you can buy both with the GUNGRAVE VR: Loaded Coffin Edition bundle. Based on the anime and using the PS2 titles as a framework this is another shooting game for VR, though […]


Arca’s Path is the debut console release from Dream Reality Interactive, a London-based developer staffed by ex-Sony coders and is a PSVR title that isn’t exactly easy to classify. On the face of it, it shares common traits with Super Monkey Ball. You view the action from behind and have […]

Arca’s Path – PSVR Review

Having recently reviewed the remaster containing the original three Spyro games when another remaster of a platformer arrived in the PlayStation Country mailbox I volunteered my services. Asterix & Obelix XXL 2: Misson: Las Vegum was released on the PS2 back in 2006, the Xbox 360 was already in people’s […]

Asterix & Obelix XXL2 – PS4 Review

While you rarely see split-screen, competitive shoot ’em ups – indeed we can only recall SNK’s Twinkle Star Sprites as an example – there is something comforting and familiar about Rival Megagun, the latest release from Vancouver’s Spacewave Software. Right from the off the game wears its retro influences on […]

Rival Megagun – PS4 Review

This particular reviewer is partial to quirky retro-tinged games and indie curios, so it’s with a little alarm we find ourselves reviewing Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics, a board game conversion from UK devshop Auroch Digital. Simply described in press releases as a Lovecraftian turn-based strategy game, we don’t have much to […]

Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics – PS4 Review

In 2018, the vertically-scrolling shoot ’em up, a genre that once dominated the videogaming scene, is something of a niche type of game and this port of a 1997 Sega Saturn conversion of a 1995 Japanese coin-op is a particularly odd choice for a PS4 release but here we are […]

Game Tengoku: CruisinMix – PS4 Review

Brought back from the brink, the Darksiders franchise once belonged to THQ (RIP). The franchise (and THQ’s name) were bought up by Nordic Games and ex-members of Vigil Games (developers of the first two Darksiders games) formed Gunfire Games and have created Darksiders III. Whilst the first two titles were […]
