Sheltered review

Sheltered has turned me into a child slaver. Sort of.. I mean, my children are regularly fed and watered. They get sleep whenever they need it and opportunities to use the restroom, even shower when we’ve had a proper rain. The only thing I ask of them in this post-apocalyptic survival simulation is that they […]

Pokkén Tournament review

At the heart of Pokkn Tournament’s battle system is a change in perspective. To fully appreciate it, I needed to adjust my own. There are two modes of combat at the heart of Bandai Namco’s melding of Tekken’s crunchy pugilism and the Pokmon franchise. You start in Field Phase, with the camera positioned up and […]

The Division review

A week after the release of The Division, maybe we’re finally in a position to pin down exactly what this big budget genre hybrid is. Maybe not, though. In the run-up to the launch of this ambitious online open world action RPG, countless comparisons have been made to Destiny, Bungie’s own MMO-tinged shooter, though that […]

Raiden 5 review

For 20 years the trend in shmups has been to pack the screen with as many bullets as possible, but Raiden likes to play things a little differently. This, after all, is a series that helped shape the modern scrolling shooter as we understand it today, so why should it follow even the most protracted […]

Hitman review

Hitman rediscovers its agency in this strong start for IO’s episodic series. By Edwin Evans-Thirlwell Published 10/03/2016 Version tested PlayStation 4 Editor’s note: We will review the full season of Hitman once every episode has been released. But, as it is a systems-driven sandbox game, we feel that there is enough to go on in […]

Bezier review

Bezier, despite the French title, lifted from the Renault employee Pierre Bzier, who in the 1960s helped teach computers how to draw curves, is a quintessentially British sort of video game. It fits snugly within the tradition of eccentric psychedelic shooters – Jeff Minter’s Space Giraffe, Rob Fearon’s Death Ray Manta, Bizarre Creations’ Geometry Wars […]

Devil Daggers review

Devil Daggers is brutally, gleefully hard. As the ceaseless waves of enemies stack, the seconds stretch into weeks; each one a living nightmare in which you’re only just able to stay ahead of the pack. Reviewing your score at the end of a run is like coming back from another dimension in which time runs […]

Town of Light review

“When you’re mad, you cease to exist.” The Town of Light is a game set in an asylum, and several decades of games like it have taught us what those words mean. Spookiness. Evil experiments. Something sinister in the basement. Jump-scares. This doesn’t have any of that, but don’t for a moment think that means […]

Bravely Second review

Editor’s note: Bravely Second is out now on 3DS, so here’s our review from late last week in order to let you know whether Square’s JRPG sequel is worthwhile or not. Let me tell you a story: there was once a gung-ho old pirate and an effervescent teenybopper. They both wanted the rights to a […]

Superhot review

Turns out there is a killer trick to creating hyper-violent entertainment: do the slow stuff fast, and the fast stuff slow. That’s literature right there. And cinema. Someone doing crucial research into a baddie’s tax affairs, or the ballistics analysis on a bullet lodged in cartilage? Montage, I reckon. Or handle it over the phone. […]

Far Cry Primal review

Picture a moment in space and time. It can be anywhere and anywhen. It could be aeons ago, long before the first upwardly mobile fish ever unlocked the ability to walk on land, or it could be a few centuries into the future, during the 31st term of President Trump Al Saud. However far-flung the […]

Project X Zone 2 review

It’s hard to describe Project X Zone 2 without using the phrase “fan service.” Because that’s exactly what it is. A decadent celebration of crossovers, rife with in-jokes, sometimes inappropriate humour, and the kind of quasi-innocent and often contentious sauciness that permeates many anime. As a game, it’s a relatively light offering, mashing the feel […]

Californium review

I’m sat in a chair stabbing at a clacking typewriter in an attempt to get Californium’s central character, sci-fi hack Elvin Green, out of a fug of cheap beer and amphetamines and over his writing block, when there’s a hollow thump, thump, thump at the door. And so I stand, look out across Green’s scrappy […]

Prospekt review

It’s been 11 years and four months since the release of Half-Life 2, and eight years and five months since Valve left Gordon Freeman’s tale agonisingly unfinished in Episode 2. Not that I’m counting the days or anything. Just the months. And years. But it’s fair to say that, by this point, fans of what […]

Street Fighter 5 review

In moving Street Fighter into the next generation, Capcom has rejigged the famous fighting game series not just in its core combat, but in its structure – each with varying success. The match to match fighting, as you’d expect from Capcom, is brilliant. It’s just a shame that features you’d expect to be included at […]

Layers of Fear review

If a tree falls in a forest with nobody present, does it make a noise? Does the moon exist when there’s no-one to look at it? And is the hallway behind me still an ominous jumble of ornate casements and baleful oil paintings, or has it turned into something else? Layers of Fear makes space […]
