Magicka 2 review

Magicka 2 is a game that practically terrorises you into having a sense of humour about it. Visually it’s nothing less than a demented helter-skelter ride of gaudy chaos, in which accidents are clearly supposed to happen, and happen often. Trying to keep an eye on your character is one...

Sunset review

Sunset has a lot to say. It talks of war, of art and culture, family, home and responsibility. It talks of race, gender, wealth, privilege and society as a whole. It talks of love. In a fashion comparable to Gone Home, Sunset is less a game and more an interactive...

Payday 2: Crimewave Edition review

No-one punches the air when they drive into a tree in Forza. No-one feels good when they die in Battlefield to a distant sniper with some hideous MLG gamertag for the third time. No-one wants to hoof the ball out of the ground in FIFA. But Payday 2 is a...

Hatred review

The carnage, the glorious, delectable carnage. That’s what we’re supposed to think right? That’s the take-away from playing Hatred that we’re supposed to get.

That’s certainly what fans of...

Farming Simulator 15 review

Farming Simulator 15 is a truly peculiar experience, one that is both weirdly relaxing and perplexing in equal measures. For one, we’re as yet unsure of the true appeal of this bizarre gaming sub genre that’s shifted millions of copies and is considered the most-played farming simulator the world over....

Nom Nom Galaxy review

Alongside a brief synopsis, Nom Nom Galaxy fails to truly sound all that original. Here’s a sandbox experience about gathering resources, expanding a structure of your own creation and defending said structure from aggressors; a description likely met with derision and apathy. But don’t let its Minecraft or Terraria familiarities...

Invisible, Inc. review

Your main enemy in Invisible, Inc. isn’t the goons that populate the levels, it’s time. Typically, you think of stealth games as sluggish – you’ve got to wait, examine your surroundings, move at the optimum times. That’s only partly true with Invisible, Inc.; sprinting is your friend, you want to...
