Super Mario Run review

Is it a spoiler to say there are ghost houses in Super Mario Run? If so, my apologies. Consider yourself spoiled. And yet, because this is Mario – and because these are ghost houses – the spoiler does not really spoil very much. I only mention the ghost houses at all because the first one […]

Samsung KS7000 4K TV review

By David Bierton Published 03/12/2016 When we first tested Samsung’s KS7000, the all-important game mode wasn’t available when viewing HDR material, instead limiting the display to movie mode and a mammoth 117ms of input latency – and that was a massive shame. Samsung’s display technology is excellent, its HDR implementation has much to commend it, […]

Alienware Alpha R2 review

Three years into their respective lifecycles, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have relaunched in smaller, slimmer incarnations – but neither of them holds a candle to the Alienware Alpha’s form-factor. It remains an absolutely tiny, ultra-cute piece of PC technology – and this new R2 incarnation is now a whole lot more powerful, having swapped […]

ICARUS.1 review

Perhaps you’ve seen a movie called Cargo? No, Jason Statham isn’t in it. It’s a dystopian sci-fi film from Switzerland that was a Netflix mainstay for years, concerning the crew of a space freighter and a potentially dangerous cargo that needed delivering to a distant station. Of course the movie description and thumbnail DVD cover […]

Rollercoaster Tycoon World review

My experience playing Rollercoaster Tycoon World began with confusion. Upon launching, it presented me with an entirely black screen, and remained that way for the duration of my mid-afternoon coffee-break. As black screens go it’s a very good one, the kind of fathomless void you’d expect Lovecraftian horrors to float around in. In fact, I […]

Planet Coaster review

If you’ve ever been to Disneyland, California, you’ll probably know about the so-called stretch rooms that kick off the park’s legendary Haunted Mansion ride. On entering Disney’s spooky old house, you’re ushered into a windowless chamber that begins to change almost imperceptibly as your disembodied host bids you welcome, elongating so that its once perfectly […]

Motorsport Manager review

Disappointment is an inherent part of motorsport. Maybe it’s not where you’ll find the bulk of the appeal, but it’s certainly a massive part of the reality. It’s about crashing out in your final ever home grand prix, coasting to a halt within minutes of a surefire victory in a 24 hour race or frittering […]

Pokémon Sun and Moon review

Pokmon has often been a series trading on nostalgia. That warm, fuzzy and sort of sickening feeling some of us are prone to when thinking back to simpler times of link cables, your dad’s Game Boy, and maybe the occasional semi-exploitative playground trade. Pokmon’s relied on the stirring up of wistful reflection for so long […]

Watch Dogs 2 review

Three weeks before Watch Dogs 2’s release, hackers co-opted millions of connected devices around the world – principally security cameras, but also other web-connected domestic devices – and combined their power in an attack that took great swathes of the internet offline. For most of us, the attack, by perpetrators whose identity remains unknown, was […]

Football Manager 2017 review

There’s an unwritten agreement between you, the player, and Sports Interactive that sits at the heart of every Football Manager. The manager agrees to invest completely in the game world, both in terms of time and emotional energy. No save-quitting, no adding dummy managers, no downloadable “cheat” tactics. SI, meanwhile, agrees to create the most […]

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 […]
