Tamarin Review

Tamarin on Xbox is a game that does not know what it wants to be, one capable of completely blindsiding player expectations. It’s simply a weird game, perhaps one of the weirdest in the platformer genre. Still, the real disappointment is just how boring and bare the third person shooting action is, with no real sense of rewarding level design or progression.

Alchemic Cutie Review

Alchemic Cutie on Xbox is an interesting but tough sell. It no doubt has its charms and strengths, and yet its distinguishing ideas lack real substance in execution; the experience as a whole can feel pointless for a genre that is known to champion a pointless slice of life loop in the first place.

Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town Review

Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town is a solid and enjoyable remake of a Harvest Moon classic. Yet while you get to enjoy a classic experience intact, it also feels incredibly dated given the other options available on Xbox today.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition Review

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy- Definitive Edition on Xbox is an overpriced and poorly produced release which does absolutely no favours to the classic games it attempts to celebrate. The experience here is far from definitive, and aside from the sheer laziness in the graphical remastering and performance, it introduces a whole slew of performance issues.

Looking back to 2005 and Street Fighter III: Third Strike

At some stage the world will be ready for Street Fighter to move into the future with a brand new cast of world warriors, and maybe, just maybe, Ryu and Ken can finally retire their Hadoukens.

Looking back to 2015 and the endless supply of DLC with Dead or Alive 5 Last Round

Dead or Alive 5 Last Round is an example of what “not” to do when distributing a free-to-play fighting game in this day and age.

5 of the Best Remastered Retro Compilations for Xbox One

2019 was a strong one for Xbox One with some brilliantly curated retro compilations each coming with a range of bonus content and welcome quality of life improvements. Here are our five picks for the best remastered compilations for Xbox One.

Natsuki Chronicle finally gets confirmed Xbox One Christmas release

Alongside Raiden V, there was meant to be another shmup launching as Xbox One debuted, going by the name of Natsuki Chronicle. Months became years and the years turned into well… half a decade. But finally, it's here.

Taking a look at Don’t Die, Minerva! in Xbox Game Preview

It will be interesting to see how this game comes along during the course of its testing in the Xbox Preview program, but with a little polish and perhaps a bit of balancing in the difficulty design this could be a real winner when the final game eventually launches in 2020. Xbox One definitely needs more cartoon-like and imaginative experiences, and this one could be a welcome addition.

Driven Out Review

Even for gamers looking for a challenge, Driven Out just doesn’t provide a satisfying experience.

Stay Cool, Kobayashi-San!: A River City Ransom Story Review

Stay Cool, Kobayashi-San! A River City Ransom Story on Xbox One is an obscure and campy beat ‘em up adventure that is off-kilter even by the standards set by the River City franchise.

Fractured Minds Review

Video games have always been about escapism and sought after as a coping mechanism, and with the release of Fractured Minds it’s great to see the medium being utilised in a way that is both healthy and accommodating.

Tokyo Warfare Turbo Review

Tokyo Warfare Turbo on Xbox One feels like an unfinished and incomplete game, and while the core tank action can be quite enjoyable, it is unfortunately situated in a package that offers very little in the way of gameplay variety and modes.

Valfaris Review

With an exceptional heavy metal presentation thanks to a brilliant soundtrack and uniquely detailed visuals, Valfaris is as metal as gaming gets.

Sea Salt Review

Sea Salt is an interesting experimental idea which offers players a cool premise and game world to indulge in. While a lot of thought and care has gone into building a compelling world in order to convincingly provide players the empowerment of being a cruel omnipotent being, the actual real-time strategy gameplay is far too simplistic.

Legrand Legacy: Tale of the Fatebounds Review

Legrand Legacy: Tale of Fatebounds on Xbox One is a passable Japanese RPG knock-off at best. It has some original elements and ideas in its premise and presentation, but everything else feels too familiar and it doesn’t exactly borrow good ideas from genre exemplars.

Looking back to 2004 and the fighting prowess of Dead or Alive Ultimate

Dead or Alive Ultimate was quite literally the ultimate fighting experience on Xbox; that and Dead or Alive 3 as a launch title certainly gave Microsoft’s first console a formidable exclusive when going up against PlayStation and Tekken.

Children of Morta Review

Children of Morta on Xbox One is a traditional roguelike hack and slash RPG situated in a rich fantasy setting that feels alive thanks to an endearing cast of characters in the Bergson family.

The Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Pack Review

Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Editions restore two of the greatest role-playing video games to ever come out of the Dungeons & Dragons universe, all wrapped up in The Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Pack on Xbox One.
