Stick around with Infini and it will stick around with you long after you have finished it.

LEGO 2K Drive Review

Within the myriad of LEGO racing games, LEGO 2K Drive does just about enough to carve an identity for itself.

Moonrise Fall Review

With themes of loss, death, hope, sadness, survival and everything else, it isn’t necessarily the first-choice setting for a puzzle game. But all that adds up to make Moonrise Fall a unique title in that respect.

Saints Row: The Heist & The Hazardous Review

If you are a fan of the main missions in Saints Row, you will likely have fun with what is found in The Heist & The Hazardous.

Prominence Poker Review

After a three-month head start on Steam, Prominence Poker has now made its way on to the Xbox One. Is it a Royal Flush or about as useful as 2-7 off suit hole cards?

Mirror’s Edge: Exordium TPB Review

The term ‘exordium’ derives from Latin and simply means ‘beginning’. Much has been said regarding 2016’s Mirror’s Edge Catalyst and whether it was a sequel, prequel, or complete reboot? One thing has to be said though, to fully understand the game in whatever state it is in the Mirror’s Edge timeline, without the full Exordium, will prove difficult.

Dungeon Punks Review

Do not try and use the left analog stick to move your character. I repeat: Do not try and use the left analog stick to move your character. You may spend a good five minutes trying, before deciding your controller is broken. Much like I did. But this is not the case. Your controller is not broken so do not try and take it apart. Dungeon Punks does not utilise either of the analog sticks by default. Changing this in the Settings screen makes the movement a lot easier, but spell execution can become more sporadic.

Song of the Deep Review

Firstly, a confession: I have no idea what a Metroidvania type game plays like, having played neither a Metroid game or a Castlevania game. This isn’t the worst gaming crime I have committed though, I will save that one for another time. What intrigued me to try Song of the Deep more than anything else was simply that it was being developed by Insomniac, a company responsible for some of the greatest games during my formative years, and who recently developed a bit of a reputation creating some of the most original weapons across the likes of Ratchet & Clank and Sunset Overdrive.

Taking a look at Free-to-Play on Xbox One

The term Free-to-Play can instantly conjure up a myriad of negative connotations to the more traditional gamer: parents being fleeced thousands of pounds because they left their child alone for 10 minutes on Simpsons: Tapped Out, the more sinister business model Pay-to-Win, and generally the content of games being a lower standard with revenues not been explicitly known beforehand. This may have been the case during the F2P formative years, but like a reformed criminal, they have come out of the darkness and really got their act together, across all forms of gaming devices.

Minecraft Legends Review

Minecraft Legends is a proper strategy game, despite the friendly look. Scratching the surface will show a surprising amount of depth and whilst hardcore RTS players may sneer, it brings a ton of fun to the table.

Ghostlore Review

If you have an interest in an ARPG, and are looking for something outside of Diablo, Ghostlore is well worth your time.

Ultimately, World Championship Boxing Manager 2 swings and misses with its simple, yet repetitive, boxing management sim.

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.
