Owlboy review

Owlboy’s greatest achievement is how it has managed to stay relevant. Against the deluge of retro-inspired sidescrolling platformers that have been thrown at us over the past several years, Owlboy doesn’t just stand head and shoulders above its competition – it’s an outstanding example of how the genre can, and should, be done. Development started […]

Slayer Shock review

David Pittman knows how to make a good hub. The arcane library at the heart of his game Eldritch is one of my favourite examples ever: a wonderful ramble of books and wood panelling and off-kilter geometry that continues to reward exploration. Now Slayer Shock is here and, although the hub it comes with is […]

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti review

Nvidia’s Pascal architecture continues its top-down steamrolling of the graphics product stack, with the arrival of the first of two more budget-orientated parts – GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050. It’s the first card we’re looking at today, highlighting the debut of the fully enabled version of Nvidia’s GP107 processor, offering performance significantly ahead of […]

Civilization 6 review

When Civilization 5 unstacked units, forcing each onto its own hexagonal tile, and doing away with the dreaded ‘stack of doom’ in the process, it was a huge relief. In that one neat edit Civ 5 became a clearer and more nuanced game of strategy. In Civ 6, Firaxis goes further still, unstacking the cities […]

iPhone 7/ iPhone 7 Plus review

It apparently took “courage” to remove the 3.5mm audio jack from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, according to Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller. The company’s less kind critics have voiced the opinion that it has more to do with bolstering sales of the new £160 AirPods and the wireless […]

Rhythm Paradise Megamix review

Listen carefully and you’ll soon notice how existence is filled with rhythmic flourishes. There’s the plip-plipping of raindrops on a tin roof, the wobble and throb of a lorry engine idling in traffic, and the wash of timpani whenever a wave hurls itself onto pebbles, fatally. There are the seasons – four beats of the […]

Rez Infinite review

Have you ever really played Rez? I thought I had, but now I’m not so sure. That very first time back in 2001 on the Dreamcast, through a soapy fog of weed in student halls and the hazy dawning realisation that games could offer so much more than they had done before, was just a […]

DriveClub VR review

Cars can do strange things to men, and none stranger than what happened to Matt Southern as he revealed Evolution Studios’ DriveClub on-stage at the dawn of the PlayStation 4. “We’ve modelled the direction of each metallic flake of paint in multiple layers,” he drooled, explaining the exquisite detail on each of DriveClub’s cars. “We’ve […]

Samsung KU6400 4K TV review

By David Bierton Published 08/10/2016 Samsung’s KU6400 series comes in many different sizes, but here, we’re reviewing the 40-inch version – a display we chose as a potential 4K screen for PS4 Pro, Xbox One S or PC users in a smaller office or bedroom gaming environment. It packs 4K pixel density into a 40-inch […]

Fractured Space review

If you’ve ever looked at Eve Online’s space fleet battles and wished you could participate, but have been put off by the job entry requirements – mandatory game subscription, weeks of basic training, sociopathic tendencies not required but a distinct advantage – then perhaps Fractured Space is worth a look. It’s a Homeworld-infused take on […]

Batman: Arkham VR review

Rocksteady keeps its reputation intact with one of the finest games to launch with PSVR. By Simon Miller Published 06/10/2016 Version tested PlayStation 4 A quick Google search for Batman: Arkham VR will result in one underlying opinion: it’s too short. While Rocksteady’s take on a virtual reality version of The Dark Knight does only […]

Sony PlayStation VR review

By Richard Leadbetter Published 05/10/2016 The challenge facing Sony with PlayStation VR is immense. The firm doesn’t just have to make virtual reality work on a system with nowhere near the same level of horsepower as the PC minimum specification, it has to bring in very expensive hardware at an affordable price-point and it has […]

FIFA 17 review

It’s been 23 years since FIFA International Soccer, the first FIFA game, was released. For more than two decades, EA has taken its most successful product, tweaked it slightly, added a few marketing phrases and released new annual editions to huge success. Often it’s little more than the rosters that can objectively be said to […]

Virginia review

The world is a maze, and the minotaur lurks at the centre. What form will it take? I shouldn’t really talk about it. Everything about Virginia is a potential spoiler, and I want to spoil as little as possible. It’s not even the plot so much as the manner in which things unfold that you’ll […]
