Scanner Sombre review

Introversion, the independent studio once styled as the last of the bedroom coders before bedroom coding became a thing all over again, doesn’t tend to rush things. Prison Architect spent some three years in early access before finally crossing the line, and yet Scanner Sombre – remarkably only the studio’s sixth title in its 16 […]

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 review

For all of its flaws, Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 certainly grows on you. You’ve got to see through the worst of its problems before it gets there, though. It starts off rough, force-feeding you exposition and not relenting until it lets you loose on your first proper mission some 30 minutes later. What it sets […]

AMD Radeon RX 580/ RX 570 review

AMD call it Polaris refined, but to all intents and purposes, RX 570 and RX 580 are indeed upclocked versions of their predecessors. There’s the same complement of 32 and 36 compute units respectively, power efficiency is diminished in the quest for higher frequencies and by extension, the emphasis this time is on increased performance. […]

LG OLED B6 4K TV review

By David Bierton Published 17/04/2017 What is the best 4K screen for gaming? In terms of performance for the price, the Samsung KS7000 and KS8000 are difficult to beat, but as good as they are, there are compromises. Meanwhile, in the background, LG’s phenomenal B6 OLED TV has gradually dropped in price, while boosting its […]

Mr. Shifty review

Remember that opening scene in the second X-Men movie where Nightcrawler teleports his way through the White House, knocking out armed guards left and right as he swiftly punctures the barriers between public spaces and the president of the United States? Mr. Shifty is a lot like that. The title character even maintains Kurt Wagner’s […]

The Signal from Tölva review

The Signal from Tölva is an open-world wasteland game of unusual profundity, its trash activating a set of cultural reference points that extend far beyond Mad Max-bred cliché. Sculpted by former Aardman Animations artist Olly Skillman-Wilson from concept pieces created by ex-Rockstar doodler Ian McQue, the game’s titular planet is a wilderness of crash-landed starships […]

Super Bomberman R review

Some comparisons can cut both ways. Super Bomberman R, an unlikely revival for Hudson Soft’s classic series as it celebrates its 33rd anniversary, feels like the product of another age. In its power pop colour and with its kernel of proven multiplayer brilliance, it’s every inch a forgotten Dreamcast classic that’s been freshly unearthed. With […]

Snipperclips review

In many ways, Snipperclips is the perfect proof-of-concept for Nintendo’s Switch. It isn’t much of a technical showcase, but it’s a wonderful advert for the console’s flexibility as a multiplayer and social device. It’s easy to set-up (just split the Joy-Cons and go) and perfect for an impromptu gaming session: you don’t need a lot […]

Stories Untold review

Editor’s note: Emily discusses the premise of each Stories Untold episode below. If you’d rather not spoil things for yourself, play before reading. We’re nearly two decades into the new millennium, but so much of our cultural identity is still lodged somewhere in the latter half of the 20th century – the retro synths of […]

1-2-Switch review

In hopeful pitches delivered to panels of drab-suited, stern-mouthed men, game-makers will refer to their games as being ‘platform agnostic’. It’s a way to make a game more attractive to publishers; the fewer features unique to a particular console a game utilises, the farther it can travel and the greater the potential audience. This commercial […]

Nintendo Switch review

By Thomas Morgan Published 01/03/2017 Nintendo Switch is the most powerful dedicated gaming handheld ever made, but the challenges facing it are considerable. It’s a hybrid device battling on three fronts: firstly, as a successor to the ill-fated Wii U. Secondly, as a pricier, high-tech sibling to the portable 3DS. And finally, as Nintendo’s first, […]

Take on Mars review

My favourite thing about Take On Mars is that you can use your PDA to take selfies. This may sound like a weird and pointless feature, and in a lot of ways it is. But when you’re alone on an entire planet that will passively murder you for making the slightest mistake, the ability to […]

Nintendo Classic Mini NES review

Nintendo’s Classic Mini NES is a sleek, miniaturised version of the classic console that mimics the look and feel of the original hardware to great effect. Costing £50/$60 (with prices currently inflated to over double that owing to stock shortages) it comes complete with a single controller, and it’s preloaded with 30 classic games. It’s […]
