Abzu review

ABZ (to give it its stylised title, and spare a thought for the poor SEO team on this one) is a slow, thoughtful indie adventure – but you probably clocked then when you saw the circumflex over the U. I know, I know, when it comes to indie games you always rock up for the […]

Quadrilateral Cowboy review

In Quadrilateral Cowboy, a surreal indie game of hacking and heists, you pull out your ‘deck’ – a briefcase-sized, late-80s/early-90s portable computer with a fold-out screen and a DOS prompt – and type on it to hack systems and command gizmos. Only, you’re not really doing this. You’re actually gazing into the virtual reality goggles […]

The Assembly review

One of the pleasures of VR is seeing old genres reinvented or reinvigorated by an all-new perspective. The Assembly, nDream’s sci-fi moral adventure created bespoke for virtual reality, is a case in point – it’s a slow-paced, combat free exploration adventure told from the perspectives of two different characters, enhanced by the simple and essential […]

Monster Hunter: Generations review

Being a long-time fan and a three-time reviewer of Monster Hunter, I feel like I’ve seen it all. I must have sunk somewhere between 500 and 750 hours of finger-cramping killing and crafting into Capcom’s series, and, although I’m not exactly a god-tier G-Rank player, I know my way around a Kut-Ku’s cojones. Nonetheless, each […]

BoxBoxBoy! review

I loved the first BoxBoy! The line art! The friendly chunks of platform puzzling! The hero who could sprout cubes from his body to overcome hurdles! The exclamation mark! BoxBoxBoy! is an easy sell, then, and that’s before you get to its big idea. And as big ideas go, it’s wonderfully fit for purpose: game-changing […]

AMD Radeon RX 480 review

The Radeon RX 480 is a seriously impressive package. It’s not the fastest graphics card on the market, but then it wasn’t designed to be. AMD has targeted its Polaris technology debut at the mainstream gamer, the idea being to deliver exceptional 1080p gaming performance and VR readiness at a price that simply can’t be […]

Umbrella Corps review

Resident Evil has been many, varied things throughout its 20 year history. A haunted house adventure, a sprawling action game, a wayward co-op shooter and even a vague console MMO. Next year, with the recently unveiled Resident Evil 7, there’s even the novel promise of a horror game. Before then, though, we have this. Umbrella […]

Xiaomi Mi5 review

The ongoing narrative regarding Chinese mobile giant Xiaomi is that while it makes amazing phones, it’s never going to expand into the West due to fear of costly litigation with Apple, the company it strives so hard to emulate. While that rather lazy assessment might have held water a year or so ago, things have […]

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 review

Just six weeks ago, the notion that Nvidia’s GTX 970 replacement could offer Titan X-level performance seemed like a product of wishful thinking. But the GTX 1080’s comprehensive takedown of Nvidia’s previous GPU flagship was so overwhelming that what many thought was fanciful thinking is now a cold, hard reality. The bottom line is that […]

Edge of Nowhere review

One of the most exciting powers of VR is the power to make developers see things afresh. Edge of Nowhere is hardly an enormously experimental title – Insomniac’s first Oculus outing is a traditional action-horror game about an expedition to the South Pole that goes terribly awry – but I’m not sure the team would […]

Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator review

The Guilty Gear series is driven by the unmistakeable hunger of the underdog. When series creator Daisuke Ishiwatari was a university student he obsessed over how he could design a fighting game to compete with the genre’s heavyweights, Capcom’s Street Fighter and SNK’s King of Fighters. His solution was twofold: a thematic lunge away from […]

Kirby: Planet Robobot review

The cynical view of Planet Robobot is that it’s a stopgap. A schedule-filler. It’s Nintendo calling a favour from one of its most reliable development partners while most of its internal studios busy themselves preparing games for a new hardware debut. This is, in many ways, the ideal game to buoy the 3DS in its […]

Total War: Warhammer Review

Total War: Warhammer is full of elephants. If you’ve played Rome: Total War, you have to remember the first time you encountered the Carthaginians. Here you’d been, building proper Roman armies, with swords and shields and bows and arrows, designed to defeat nations with fewer resources and aging technology. And then you run into Carthage, […]

Fire Emblem Fates review

In Fire Emblem, there’s one command that conquers all – one simple instruction that defeats the sharpest sword, an expertly aimed arrow or the most brutal of axes. Your forces might be diminished, your very best soldiers lying limp on the battlefield never to return, but you can sidestep the lasting effects with one input. […]

LG G5 review

Browsing your local mobile phone emporium, it’s hard not to feel a slight twinge of regret that we’re no longer blessed with the kind of variety that typified the “feature” phone era; that wild and often unpredictable age before Apple and Google dominated the landscape and big-screen mobiles were the norm. Firms like Nokia, Samsung, […]

Stellaris Review

Space is quiet, for a little while. Unlike Paradox’s other grand strategy games, Stellaris doesn’t tell you everything from the start. You’re not ready for that yet. If you’re a bit of a space romantic, you might look out at the great expanse and get a sense that something’s happening out there in the darkness. […]
