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.

Toodee and Topdee Review

Toodee and Topdee is a cleverly thought out game, running nice visuals, a relaxing soundtrack and unique gameplay mechanics.

Star Trek: Resurgence Review

One of the best games of 2023 so far, Star Trek: Resurgence deserves to be spoken about as discussions surround the best Star Trek storyline of all time.

Slicing ‘em up with The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre could be the one to dethrone Dead by Daylight, and I can’t wait for full launch in August. 

Super Mega Baseball 4 Review

MLB The Show is still the undisputed king of baseball games. Super Mega Baseball 4 is there for the casual or younger players, but it'll be hard to keep eyes on this for very long.

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.

Street Fighter 6 Review

A bursting-at-the-seams package full of things to discover, all while welcoming newcomers and pleasing veterans, Street Fighter 6 is most certainly a game of the year contender.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Review

A sadly undercooked game that shows sparks of promise and a real passion for the source material. Unfortunately it is tough to recommend The Lord of the Rings: Gollum in its current form, especially at full price.

Evil Wizard Review

Evil Wizard takes twisted humour and easy to learn mechanics to craft a Metroidvania, action-RPG that you should take the time to play.

Star Trek Online – Xbox Series X|S Review

The lack of features brought by the Xbox Series X|S upgrade does not detract from the fun available in Star Trek Online, but you’ll need to look past the 2007 graphical style.

Redfall Review

Redfall is a competent action shooter - the only problem is that the market is filled with other options that do things a bit better.

Creed III – Film Review

Strange directional choices aside, Creed III is an exceptionally good movie.

MLB The Show 23 Review

If you are looking to play some baseball, MLB The Show 23 is 100% the first option to pick.

Ghostwire: Tokyo Review

Ghostwire: Tokyo can be a mixed bag. Occasionally brilliant, it follows that up with lacklustre sections and clunky mechanics.

Mayhem in Single Valley Review

Mayhem in Single Valley is one for fans of retro goodness.

Discovering the joys of Valheim on Xbox

I am just at the beginning of my Viking based Valheim adventure, and cannot wait to see what I discover next.
