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.

Batora: Lost Haven Review

Batora: Lost Haven is a cracking adventure boasting a powerful character driven story. Despite simple and sometimes unvaried gameplay, there’s enough here to keep you invested until this tale’s conclusion.

The Jackbox Party Pack 9 Review

The Jackbox Party Pack 9 brings new ideas without losing that winning formula.

Moonscars Review

Moonscars may look grim, but there’s little horror in allowing your morbid curiosity to get the better of you here.

THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD: Remake Series X|S Review

THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD: Remake and the Xbox Series X|S upgrade updates the classic for a new generation. It’s the best way to play the game, unless you know where one of those old arcade cabinets is stashed.

Rabio Review

There’s not a lot that is specifically bad about Rabio, but there isn’t much good to report either. It’s a forgettable, tolerable half hour which is made worthwhile thanks to the easy Xbox Gamerscore.


There’s lots to love about DEATHLOOP, along with its sizzling style and refreshing gameplay structure. However, in practice, reliving your day over and over does come with limitations.

SpiderHeck Review

SpiderHeck is an eye-catching oddity that is best played with others. As arcade brawlers go, there isn’t anything else quite like it.

Onsen Master Review

Despite feeling a little different, Onsen Master is a shallow, repetitive game that even a seemingly generous amount of game modes cannot cure.

Justice Sucks: Tactical Vacuum Action Review

Justice Sucks: Tactical Vacuum Action is a refreshingly original title that strikes a brilliant balance for players, offering an experience that is accessible, addictive and - above all else - an astounding amount of fun.

Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed Review

Destroy All Humans! 2 - Reprobed is bold, brash and bombastic but somehow still works in a world which has changed significantly, even if the game fundamentally remains the same as before.

Arcadegeddon Review

Despite legitimate questions around longevity, Arcadegeddon is an absolute blast that takes place across a lush, digital battleground. With the right support, the future should be bright for this one.

Dyna Bomb 2 Review

Dyna Bomb 2 is a frustrating experience that feels unfairly difficult. It suffers from some strange development decisions, and thanks to the inflated asking price, just isn’t worth a punt. 

Looking Back to 1997 and the Legacy of GoldenEye 007

The history of James Bond games is a chequered one at best. Goldeneye 007 is (quite rightly) regarded as the best entry, and one of the greatest games of all time. It stands up so well even after all these years, which is why a remaster is still in such high demand by gamers across the community. 

Looking Back to the Most Memorable Moments of BioShock

Some games leave a mark. Whether it resonates personally, across the entire gaming community or both; at times the impact is noticeably different. BioShock is one such example.

Tribes of Midgard Review

If you're not too bothered about objective based gameplay and prefer forging your own path, you'll likely enjoy however much time you decide to spend with Tribes of Midgard.

Nocturnal delivers gamers some captivating combat and stunning visuals

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.
