A Plague Tale: Requiem is a stealth-based adventure game from Bordeaux-based coders, Asobo Studio and is the sequel to the original 2019 title A Plague Tale: Innocence.   This is a direct follow-on so it’s worth recapping what the original game was all about. In Innocence you played as Amicia de Rune, a […]

I do love a good souls-like but there is a sense that taking them into the second dimension can limit combat and exploration. There’s no shortage of triers and Third Sphere Game Studios are the latest to give the stripped down experience a shot. Released on steam in January, a […]

Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo is a game we didn’t necessarily expect to see. Coming from Spanish developer Pendulo Studios and longtime French publisher Microids, this is a mystery adventure with occasional QTEs based on the premise of Hitchcock’s film. Rather than closely following the plot of the Jimmy Stewart 1958 […]

It’s been a long while since I reviewed Dakar 18. I found that game to be ambitious but really difficult to breach with some clumsy navigational tools and a game that didn’t look all that hot. Time has passed and now Saber Interactive Porto have delivered a follow-up. It’s a […]

Super Jagger Bomb  is an arcade action title from Spanish software  soloist CheapeeSoft Games.  However, anyone who ever frequented an arcade in the ’80s will definitely recognise where this game gets its inspiration from. With its jumping, floating and bomb-collecting action, this game is very much a clone of Tehkan’s […]

It must be train simulator season. No sooner have I finished reviewing Train Sim World 3, another one pulls up to the station. Train Life: A Railway Simulator is an effort more concerned with management and a wider world than authenticity and accuracy. With a lenient attitude, Simteract are looking […]

Hardspace: Shipbreaker is the latest title from Vancouver natives Blackbird Interactive and it’s genuinely got a different concept to really any game we’ve reviewed or played.  It’s pretty much as the name suggests.  You’re a spaceship salvager and you float around in space cutting up giant space ships before flinging their […]

There’s a weird phenomenon that happens sometimes in the indie game scene, where one dev comes up with an idea and almost immediately, another game releases with an uncanny resemblance to that idea. Last November, I reviewed a game called BPM: Bullets Per Minute Which featured the novel concept of marrying […]

It’s all right there in the title but Session: Skate Sim is, unsurprisingly, a skateboarding simulation.  However, that doesn’t mean that Montreal-based Crea-ture Studios haven’t surprised the hell out of us with this game. Like every other right-minded gamer, we grew up on the Tony Hawk games and while they taught us a lot […]

Session: Skate Sim – PS5 Review


Attempts to make World War I’s trench warfare compelling have been made before but I’ve never really seen them as great successes. At best, they recreated the meat grinder nature of an attritional conflict and, at worst, they become a lesson in frustration. Taking a more vertical approach with less […]
