‘2084’ PC Game Review A Cyberpunk Shooter Lacking Substance

With a cyberpunk aesthetic and boasting a fast-paced combat system, 2084 is a fun game that quickly loses its charm. Given the game is still in early-access, it’s worth noting that the game is a little over £7 and if I’m honest, it doesn’t even feel like it’s worth that in its current form.

‘The Occupation’ Game Review An interesting concept, poorly executed

While there are some nice ideas here and the game itself does well to pace out its narrative in a compelling way, the lack of auto-saving, long stretches of monotony and a wealth of glitches make this more of a missed opportunity than it should be.

‘The Lego Movie 2’ Game Review A Failed Meeting Of Two Worlds

ith its open world, Minecraft-like building, Travelers Tales attempt to merge the open-world formula of Lego Worlds with the traditional format of a narrative-driven Lego game and the results are lacklustre and disappointing to say the least.

‘Far Cry New Dawn’ | Game Review Aesthetically Impressive But Lacking Depth

If you’re a little fatigued with the usual Far Cry formula and are looking to try something a bit different, steer clear of New Dawn. Despite its pretty visuals and reasonably well implemented RPG mechanics, this is largely an unchanged Far Cry experience.

‘Subnautica’ | Game Review In Too Deep

If you can look past some of the more questionable design choices and don’t mind the chunks of pop-in that crop up here, Subnautica opens up in the best possible way and is unlike anything else out there.

‘Kingdom Hearts III’ | Game Review The Wait Is Over

It’s a lot of fun and the game has that nostalgic charm that makes you really feel like you’re playing through a proper Kingdom Hearts game. It’s just such a shame that the game doesn’t do enough to justify 14 years of waiting.

‘Persona 5: Dancing In Starlight’ | Game Review Dance Off

With a simple control scheme and varying levels of customisation, Dancing In Starlight is a perfect love letter to a fantastic JRPG but a little too barren for its own good.

‘Spyro Reignited Trilogy’ | Game Review Spitting fire

The faithful recreation of Spyro and the iconic worlds he visits is a great trip down memory lane and worth the nostalgic hit to experience again.

‘HellSign’ | Early Access Game Review Ghostwatch

The general ambience is on point and no other game has managed to make you feel like a ghost hunter quite like HellSign. Unfortunately the issues with the gameplay are too deeply embedded in the core enjoyment with the title that it’s hard not to come away disappointed with this one.

‘Book Of Demons’ | Game Review Bestseller

Book Of Demons is an action hack’n’slash RPG that almost gets everything right. Inspired by the original Diablo, Indie company Thing Trunk have put together the perfect love letter to that game, mixing a range of challenging enemies to boot with a well-implemented card deck system.

‘Mutant Year One: Road To Eden’ | Game Review Sneaky Sneaky

Mutant Year One: Road To Eden is a game that combines the lore and exploration of the original Fallout with the intricately detailed and strategic combat of X-Com to perfection. With a gorgeous art style and an interesting story, Mutant Year One is let down only by its short run time and limited customisation.
