Doom review

[Reviewed on Xbox One] There was a point during the course of our first playthrough of Doom where we were not very happy with it at all. While we were appreciating it aesthetically and could see what id Software was trying to do, we were becoming increasingly frustrated with issues...

Overwatch review

[Reviewed on Xbox One] Overwatch succeeds and surprises on so many levels that it’s actually a little embarrassing. Embarrassing, that is, for the myriad of developers currently working on first-person shooters – Overwatch exhibits a degree of technical excellence that will be desperately sought after in the years that follow,...

Lucky’s Tale review

Ever since Sega decided it needed a rival to Mario, cute human-animal hybrids have been the standard platformer protagonists, especially when launching a new device. Think Knack for the PS4, Sonic for the Genesis, Banjo, Spyro and the rest. And now Lucky, Oculus Rift’s bipedal fox. Like the vulpine protagonist...

Except it definitely isn’t a classic JRPG; it’s knowing and it’s self-aware. It’s everything its predecessor was, but taken...

TrackMania Turbo review

More racers should start with your car being dropped by a helicopter onto the track. It’s a simple, visceral thrill that really sets the light and silly yet competitively intense tone of TrackMania Turbo. And this is a game with plenty of thrilling moments to it, it’s just a shame...

Enter The Gungeon review

[Reviewed on PS4] Enter The Gungeon is the bastard spawn of a roguelike and an arcade shooter after a night of hard liquor and too many John Woo movies. And what a glorious mashup it is – after selecting from a number of gun-toting tropes (hello, Marine, Convict, Pilot and...
