Sea of Stars Review

Sea of Stars manages to modernise a dated formula by raising the bar for all future 2D RPGs.

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora Review

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is not a bad game by any means, but once discovering the stunning vistas wears thin, you won’t find much substantial meat to chew on in those forests.

EA Sports UFC 5 Review

EA Sports UFC 5 is probably the best iteration EA have made. It embodies the essence of the sport, which makes it easy to recommend for both seasoned fans and newcomers alike.

NHL 24 Review

The condition NHL 24 is in right now makes it feel like a beta test for a full release that is some months off. It’s extremely disappointing.

Endless Dungeon Review

Endless Dungeon might not be a game for everyone, and it may not convert you to become a roguelike faithful, but it is a fun experience - especially when enjoyed with friends.

Hellboy Web of Wyrd Review

Maybe hardcore fans will find more joy, but Hellboy Web of Wyrd feels tricky to recommend to even the most dedicated fans.

RoboCop: Rogue City Review

Rogue City offers a true RoboCop experience, immersive gameplay, and a story that keeps players engaged.

TRANSFORMERS: EARTHSPARK – Expedition Review

It may not have been the Transformers game that I wanted, but TRANSFORMERS: EARTHSPARK – Expedition surprised at how much of a decent open world title it is.

Ghostrunner 2 Review

Ghostrunner 2 has a good amount of fun provided you can keep up with the fast pace and the many button presses required to stay alive.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem – Film Review

A great animation style, a new take on the turtles and a whole new spin on the mythos is what you get in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge – Dimension Shellshock Review

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge – Dimension Shellshock is a must buy for those who enjoyed the 2022 turtle based delight.

NBA 2K24 Review

Missing legend aside, NBA2K24 is a worthwhile upgrade for fans of 2K23. 2K’s yearly package is full to the brim with options

Quake II Review

Quake II is a great value package, well priced and showered with love and care. It may not go on playlist rotation, but it’ll be hard to turn down a game of Quake II when asked.

Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons Review

Maybe this is not a game of the year contender, but it’s probably a good starting point for the new direction and rejuvenation of Double Dragon.

The Bookwalker: Thief of Tales Review

The Bookwalker: Thief of Tales may not top many game of the year lists, but it is a unique experience that is fun to play throughout its short runtime.

F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch Review 

F.I.S.T.: Forged in Shadow Torch is not the best Metroidvania out there, but in a sea full of them, this would definitely be swimming close to the top. That is all thanks to its fantastic combat, upgrade system and setting.

Greyhill Incident Review

Greyhill Incident feels like an unfortunate swing and a miss at a hugely underused slice of horror. Using Greys as a threat should make for a rather tense and scary alien abduction experience, but whilst Greyhill Incident is indeed horrific, sadly it is done so in all the wrong ways.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective Review

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is special - a game that needs to be experienced by all at least once, it is one of the finest puzzle games you will ever play.

Finishing them with Mortal Kombat 1

Mortal Kombat 1 is a game we have had a look at, hands-on via a technical stress test.

Boxville may be a world of soggy cardboard boxes and rusty cans, but we found ourselves climbing right in.
