Elder Scrolls is a series with many titles that can make an RPG fan nostalgic, but the one title that bested them all was Morrowind. With The Elder Scrolls Online currently not quite matching the same heights, Bethesda have decided to call upon nostalgia and return fans to the beloved land of Morrowind once more in The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind expansion.

Super Bomb Rush! Review
When the very first thing asked of you by a game and its developers is whether a buttery biscuit base is still a thing, you quickly realise that what is to come isn’t ever going to treat itself too seriously.
And that is exactly the case with what Curvature Systems have done with Super Bomb Rush!.

A Hole New World Review
A Hole New World, from Mad Gear Games, was successfully crowdfunded on Kickstarter way back in July 2015. Reaching over £9,600 of an £8,000 target, it’s clear to see that their vision of NES visuals and modern playability struck a chord with gamers looking for their next retro hit. Well, now it’s here on Xbox One, so let’s see what they have made!

Air Missions: HIND Review
When I was younger there wasn’t a day go by in which I didn’t dream of what I wanted to be when I grew up.
There were many crazy ideas that went through my head - from being an astronaut to a professional footballer and everything in between. One thing that I dreamt of the most was becoming a pilot. In my late teenage years, I even decided to put in time with the Air Cadets in order to clock several hours towards that coveted pilots license.
Since that point though, things have changed a little and these days the closest I tend to get to a plane is when those rare games pop up on the games store, inviting me into the cockpit of the latest multi-million pounds aircraft, before [...]

Tango Fiesta Review
Ah, the 1980s. A time for bad movies and even badder one liners. So why on earth have Spilt Milk and Merge Games decided to create a game that brings together nearly every single 1980's action movie ever made?
Well, other than the chance to drop in with a huge amount of humour and nostalgia, I’m not really too sure. Because to go with the bad movies and bad narratives, we now have a bad game. A really bad game.

Constructor was first released 20 years ago on the PC, being somewhat a favourite for fans of the genre, but now it’s had a complete revamp in order to bring proceedings up to modern day standards. Will this gritty city builder thrive in the current market, or could its stock drop quicker than a lead balloon?

Tour de France 2017 Review
Cycling is an expensive hobby. Not only do you have to buy the expensive bike, but you also need to kit yourself out in expensive lycra and with expensive shoes, whilst expensive energy gels will quickly become your friend.
If you're a cyclist who likes gaming, then there is one more expensive purchase that you really do need to also consider. Your annual purchase of the official Tour de France video game. No matter how bad it is.

Dreamfall Chapters Review
Some games are so epic in story and scale that after a few hours of playing you can’t actually remember how things began - it’s already shifted character, location and story about a million times, that you’re just trying to cope with the here and now. Sometimes this doesn’t work very well and it becomes too damn confusing to follow, but there are other times where you get whisked away on a journey and you just have to submit to it. Dreamfall Chapters treads the line carefully between the two, but which side does it fall on?

With family and friends frequently gathering around the dinner table, party games have become a bit of a commodity at my place. Of course, games such as Cluedo and Monopoly have long been hit favourites in the party game genre, but with the console community quickly growing, and the old school board games slowly being replaced by interactive online experiences, we now have many party games to choose from on console. With many options though, it usually takes something special in order for us to head back in again and again - can SpeedRunners be that game? Does it contain the memorable party magic needed, or will we push it to the back of our hard drives like a dusty old game of [...]

Chess Ultra Review
After delving into the subject with Pure Chess a few years back, following that up with a much more recent Grandmaster Edition, Ripstone are back with another game that will appeal to all fans of chess. A game that pushes the visual boundaries to the nth degree, a game that grants both online and offline opportunities with the same deep experience.
A game like Chess Ultra.
