Offworld Trading Company review

I’ll begin with this, so as to establish my position. I am a terrible capitalist. I come from a background in which there is an inherent guilt associated with wealth. Not one of radical communism or fierce anarchy, but that quietly parochial English shame which afflicts all matters pecuniary. As much as I’d like to […]

Severed review

Severed is a very innovative game for 2011. When touchscreen gameplay became a new phenomena we had no shortage of titles like Infinity Blade and Fruit Ninja pioneering ways to merge touchscreen input with the precise thrill of an action game. The results weren’t always elegant, but they were novel. DrinkBox Studios (Guacamelee!, Mutant Blobs […]

Yo-Kai Watch review

As a child, I used to believe that there was more to the world than meets the eye. Not fairies, of course. Nothing so diaphanous or innocent. Growing up in Malaysia, my imagination swarmed with hungry ghosts and pontianaks, and all the other things that go bump in the Southeast Asian night. Yo-Kai Watch reminds […]

Star Fox Zero review

In the 19 years since Star Fox 64 there have been a handful of new entries in the series, but full-on sequels? Not so much. Rare’s Star Fox Adventures was a famously wayward appropriation of the universe, Q-Games’ Command a noble and enjoyable experiment that put the series back on rails but shot a little […]

Ratchet & Clank review

Insomniac Games has made a lot of Ratchet & Clank games. From Going Commando to Into the Nexus, the Burbank studio has spent years reiterating its formula, perfecting the art of adventure. In fact, this game (based on the movie, based on the game) marks Insomniac’s eleventh Ratchet & Clank game. Eleventh! What a lovely […]

Dark Souls 3 review

Editor’s note: Dark Souls 3 releases worldwide today, so to mark the occasion here’s our review of From Software’s farewell to its fantasy universe, first published last week. In an industry built on sequels there are plenty of also-rans – those that fail to move on, those that change too much, and those that can’t […]

1979 Revolution review

In a post 9/11 world Muslims haven’t exactly had the most rounded portrayal in the west – though when it comes to video games they never had much positive representation before 9/11 either. At worst they’re sprinkled into shooters as enemy cannon fodder, and at best represented as innocent civilians you’re protecting from their homeland’s […]

HTC Vive review

One of the big strengths of Oculus Rift is its plug-and-play simplicity. Put the camera sensor on the desk, plug in the cables and one simple calibration later you’re good to go. There’s a certain level of simplicity to it, tempered only by the nagging feeling that the product’s feature-set just isn’t complete. HTC Vive […]

Enter the Gungeon review

Game designers learn about this power early into their careers. The virtual gun remains the most useful tool in the designer’s box; nothing is better suited to giving players the ability to affect objects both near and far, or with such delicious kickback of cause and effect. Click. Bang. Thud. Virtual guns make us feel […]

Hardcore Henry review

One hot summer’s day as a young teen, I casually sauntered into our local computer shop. Sat in the corner was a PC, running a copy of Wolfenstein 3D. Although I’d seen primitive 3D games before, I’d never seen anything like this, and I got stuck in. I killed Nazis. I opened doors. I reluctantly […]

Hyper Light Drifter review

In a library at the top of the world, I found a few moments of peace. The journey up the mountain had been hard, past frosted willows and over ancient tumbledown staircases. Crows attacked – huge things in robes, capable of violent magic. Wolves sent deer scattering. And then I found my way here: to […]

Samsung Galaxy S7 review

Last year, we applauded Samsung’s apparent willingness to listen to its critics and change the way it makes smartphones. The result was the wonderful Galaxy S6, a premium metal-and-glass handset more than capable of going toe-to-toe with Apple in the desirability stakes – and one of the most powerful phones of 2015. The positive reception […]

Quantum Break review

Six years ago, Helsinki-based independent Remedy Entertainment came in for criticism that, with the long-awaited Alan Wake, it sometimes seemed more interested in making a film than it did a video game. Its follow-up feels like a typically Finnish stroke of dour, deadpan humour: with Xbox One and Windows exclusive Quantum Break, it’s gone in […]

Adr1ft review

When Adr1ft was announced at the end of 2014, the initial reports immediately compared it to Alfonso Cuarn’s spatially dazzling thriller Gravity. At first glance this is not an unfair comparison. Both are near-future space adventures which are aesthetically similar, blending the deep black of space with the harsh whites of human endeavour and dramatic […]

Dirt Rally console review

To understand rally and, by association, Dirt Rally, a British video game that conjures all of the long-form drama and complexity of the sport with unmatched brilliance, you must first disavow yourself of the notion that it’s simply a case of reaching the finish line first. That’s like saying a war is won merely by […]

Oculus Rift review

By Richard Leadbetter Published 28/03/2016 The biggest surprise coming out of our Oculus Rift testing? This isn’t just a piece of hardware. It’s a platform. Once you strap on the display and immerse yourself into Oculus Home – the front-end of the system – this becomes obvious. Buying games, accessing your library, downloading content, hooking […]

Samorost 3 review

Arguably the most appealing aspect of point-and-click adventures is not solving the puzzles themselves – though they’re often a joy – but that moment something whirs into life. Where you’re tinkering around with a mechanical puzzle and a new animation triggers. Progress! It’s a strange genre that way, in which the smallest victory can feel […]

Trackmania Turbo review

What’s the most hardcore PC driving game? You might be surprised by one very credible answer. You can spend hours perfecting set-ups on iRacing, or erecting three screens and a fully pneumatic D-Box rig for a tricked-out Project Cars experience, but nothing compares to the steel-edged challenge of Trackmania, a driving game with its own […]

Fallout 4 The Automatron review

The thing I like best about Fallout 4’s first DLC pack is that it lets you decide precisely how pissed off you want to feel about Bethesda’s companion AI. Automatron’s customisable robot buddies come in all shapes and sizes and so, of course, do Fallout’s environments – it’s therefore wise, before entering a derelict building, […]
