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 […]

House of the Dying Sun review

Now don’t get yourselves all worked up over this, I’m just using them as reference points rather than yardsticks of depth and quality, but when you first fire up House of the Dying Sun (and for quite a long while after you’ve closed it down), the two games you’re likely to be reminded of are […]

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 […]

Sunless Sea – Zubmariner review

‘The air trembles. A breath of change passes.’ As it ever has down here in the Unterzee, the subterranean archipelago where London wound up after the ground gave way, where islands jostle for position as you live the gloomy lives of a succession of sea captains. This time, however, change runs fathoms deep. Depending on […]

Panasonic DX750 ultra HD 4K TV review

By David Bierton Published 15/10/2016 When we went looking for a 4K TV for HDR gaming, our options were limited, with most displays either locking out game mode when high dynamic range content is fed to the screen or simply not displaying HDR correctly. At the time this ruled out most of Samsung’s excellent 2016 […]

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 […]

Shadow Warrior 2 review

There are two important things you need to know about the sequel to Shadow Warrior. It has a gun made of skulls, for which the magazine is also a skull. In Lo Wang’s world, a gun made of skulls does not warrant any special attention whatsoever. Indeed, if I was to rank the skullgun in […]

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 […]
