Small teams with big ambitions is a scenario that can play out any number of ways. Knuist & Perzik are primarily a Dutch duo who originally brought Wuppo to Steam last year, to critical success. Just over a year later, a version arrives for console owners to enjoy. As someone […]

Wuppo – PS4 Review


.hack is a franchise I’ve been aware of for a while. I believe I played a portion of the first game on the PS2 and I own a couple of the visual novels though it’s been so long since I read them that I might as well not have as […]

.hack//G.U. Last Recode – PS4 Review


Every now and again a game comes along which has more than a touch of what I like to call ‘feelings’ about it. Games like Journey and Abzu are probably the poster children for this genre, games that are as much about the experience as they are about the gameplay. […]

Oure – PS4 Review



The history of gaming is littered with mascots that didn’t quite make it.  For every Sonic or Mario there are plenty of strange heroes and anthromorphic animals that have starred in their own platforming series that weren’t system sellers in their own right.  Bubsy was one of those and the […]

Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back – PS4 Review


I’m going to ‘fess up right away.  This game isn’t for me.  I’ve never romanticised the idea of being a truck driver on the open roads and back routes of America (even less so the Eastern European mudlands of this game) and roughly sixty seconds into firing up Spintires: Mudrunner I […]

Spintires: Mudrunner – PS4 Review


Sometimes games defy easy categorisation and Butter & Friends: Babysitter Sim is one of those games. Inspired by the wallpapers and avatars popular on the PlayStation 3 this is an arcade experience unlike anything else I’ve played. The concept behind this game is that you and up to three local […]

Butter & Friends: Babysitter Sim – PS4 Review



Here at PlayStation Country HQ, we’ve been known to have a few shindigs over the years and while such party favourites as Hidden in Plain Sight and Nidhogg always get a look in, the true kings of the party game genre are the Jackbox Party Pack titles.  The fourth of […]

Jackbox Party Pack 4 – PS4 Review


The sequel to the 2014 title Wolfenstein: The New Order has dropped on the PS4 in the form of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. The mixture of well told story and excellent gun play brought Wolfenstein back into the gaming consciousness and this follow up hopes to continue the success. […]

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus – PS4 Review


As a series which is all about exploring history Assassin’s Creed has struggled to move with the times. The lacklustre Assassin’s Creed Unity was released buggy and broken and felt very much like the beginning of the end. The corporate machine churned out one final yearly update, based in London, which managed to salvage the series […]

Assassin’s Creed Origins – PS4 Review



The long-running one-man Touhou Project has been delivering games for over 20 years. Fluctuating between bullet hell shooters and fighters, Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle arrives on the PS4 to give fans in the west another look at the long-running series. The bullet hell aspect translates surprisingly well to battle. […]

Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle – PS4 Review


There is something I find appealing with traditional horror from Japan, loads of my favourite scares have come from that culture.  The mix of Japanese folklore, with the vulnerability of youth is  something which absolutely petrifies me. Yomawari: Midnight Shadows is a horror game which ticks all the boxes for […]

Yomawari: Midnight Shadows – PS4 Review


One of the early VR experiences on PC, Raw Data was incredibly well received and now it’s officially released and also landed on PSVR. Shooting galleries are ten a penny in virtual reality but thankfully this one is different. The story sets you in a dystopian future trying to infiltrate […]
