Darren Edwards

I have been playing games since a very early age, thanks to my Dad's encouragement. I've been an Xbox gamer since the very beginning, the Master Chief is to thank for that. I'm also a big Nintendo geek, and my other half is a PlayStation nut. I'll play pretty much anything in any genre (although FIFA and COD maybe pushing it).

Supraland: Six Inches Under Review

Although not a fully fledged sequel, Supraland: Six Inches Under is a technically impressive and wonderfully creative follow-up adventure for new and existing fans alike.

Protodroid DeLTA Review

Protodroid DeLTA rises above its niggles to emerge as a characterful platformer which pays a faithful tribute to those which inspired it.

Filthy Animals: Heist Simulator Review

Fundamentally flawed, Filthy Animals: Heist Simulator will struggle to hold your attention - it is frustrating rather than entertaining, no matter how many of you are playing at once.

Homestead Arcana Review

Undemanding and, at times, tedious gameplay takes some of the shine away from Homestead Arcana, even if there is an otherwise bewitching world with a heartfelt story to tell.

Trash Sailors Review

Trash Sailors is a fundamentally flawed experience which isn’t totally sunk but will have you questioning when you can get back on dry land. 

Shoulders of Giants Review

Shoulders of Giants is something of a grind, both in terms of gameplay and structure.

Fueled Up Review

Fueled Up may not be the most comprehensive experience, but on the whole it’s a great little co-op game that’s accessible to all.

Neon Souls Review

Neon Souls is a run of the mill platformer that fails to stand out from the crowd.

Ship Graveyard Simulator Review

Ship Graveyard Simulator tries to bring the excitement of breaking ocean-bound vessels to your sofa. However, it ends up feeling like something best left buried at sea.

Ships Simulator Review

Ships Simulator is a voyage into the tedious, but the inexcusable visuals drag this one down to the depths.

Hello Neighbor 2 Review

Hello Neighbor 2 has a great idea at its core, and it works well overall. Its potential, however, seems limited and has possibly already been reached.

Firefighting Simulator – The Squad Review

Firefighting Simulator - The Squad manages to capture something of the dangerous (and dare we say) exciting profession. However, there’s not enough here to prevent it from ending up as a flash in the pan.

Signalis Review

Signalis punches above its weight in almost every aspect. Don’t miss out on this riveting, polished journey into a brutalist, nightmarish world.

Ship of Fools Review

Ship of Fools is plucky, punchy and downright addictive. It’s one of the best roguelites available; once it has its hooks in you, it’s hard to let go. 

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Galactic Edition Review

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Galactic Edition offers a fairly pricey way to boost your character roster. Some will love it, but it may well be lost on others. Still, the base game is brilliant. 

Super Chicken Jumper Review

Super Chicken Jumper is a distinctly average option for fans of the genre; a game that doesn’t do much wrong, but also isn’t about to impress.

The Eternal Cylinder Xbox Series X|S Review

I absolutely adore The Eternal Cylinder, even more so now it has been optimised for Xbox Series X|S. Many games attempt to be bold, creative and offer an experience unlike any other. This is a game which does just that. You’ll struggle to find escapism better than this. 

Broken Pieces Review

It may be something of a marmite genre, but Broken Pieces tells a story worth hearing, despite its elements not quite fitting together perfectly. 

Why you should be playing Halo Infinite’s Winter Update

A few weeks ago I was sceptical, even worried, about the future of Halo. Rather ironically, despite the name, I felt as if the franchise’s days were numbered. However, this Winter Update for Halo Infinite has given me hope and underscored 343’s commitment to the game.

Nocturnal delivers gamers some captivating combat and stunning visuals

There are a ton of 2D action-platformer titles out there, with satisfying combat systems to guide you through a mysterious story - take Dead Cells, for example. However, we don’t think there have been many that are as cryptic and vague as Nocturnal.

Loop8: Summer of Gods Review 

Loop8: Summer of Gods is a delightful visual novel with decent RPG mechanics that’s let down greatly by repetition and below-par battling.

Final Apex Review

Some driving games would give a front axle to control as well as Final Apex does; we just wish there were more satisfying things to do when you’re in the car.

Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun Review

Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun is a hugely enjoyable title. No back reading is required here - just a happy trigger finger.


LASERPITIUM must be a marketer’s nightmare. It looks bland and has nothing fancy to shout about. You could be brutal and call it generic. But it’s so ruthlessly efficient at what it does.

Zombie Derby 2 looks to address the grind of the first game, but only ends up changing the flavour of it.
