Why should we always have to play as the good hero? Surely the bad guys have more fun? Well, Nefarious will let you find that out!
Available today on Xbox One after releasing on Nintendo Switch on the 13th Sept and a PS4 launch having happened a few days earlier, Nefarious tells the tale of Crow, an evil genius who is hell bent on stealing princesses in order to power his all-conquering Doom Howitzer.
It is you who gets to step into these shoes and help Crow unleash chaos on five different kingdoms, stomping heroes into the ground, firing off all manner of weapons and ensuring that world superiority is claimed.
With some rather lovely 2D animated and illustrated backdrops holding the tale of Nefarious together, if you have got bored of always having to save the world and fancy a little change, then this is a game that should suit.
Our full review is in the works and will be with you soon, but for now if you wish to take a punt on Digerati’s latest release then the Xbox Store will sort you out for a download. You’ll have to pay for it obviously, but the £11.99 being asked is more than acceptable. Should you be quick, you may even find a little launch discount available too.
