Rodea The Sky Soldier review

[Reviewed on Wii U] This is an attempt by famed developer Yuji Naka to re-capture the lightning in a bottle that was Saturn classic Nights Into Dreams. Unfortunately, his new game has more of the nightmare about it, as Rodea returns to Earth with a bump just as soon as...

Story Of Seasons review

Developer Marvelous AQL has been associated with the Harvest Moon series since the Game Boy Advance days. It’s now separated from publisher Natsume, which still owns the IP, but be under no illusions: Story Of Seasons is still very much a Harvest Moon game in all but name. As ever,...

Amplitude review

This magazine and Amplitude have a long-standing relationship. Some ten years ago, the staff at the time spent every lunch time either locked in multiplayer battles on Harmonix’s beat-blasting classic, or joined in arms trying to best its final stages.

Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash review

Time again for the Mushroom Kingdom’s answer to Wimbledon, but it’s not all strawberries and cream. Nintendo’s latest entry in the hybrid sports/party game errs closer to the latter, proving fun in a group, but not offering much more than grind when playing alone. The big addition – literally –...

Just Dance 2016 review

[Reviewed on Wii U] Once a year around Christmas time since 2009, the latest instalment of one of our guiltiest pleasures lands in our laps. Close the curtains, lock your doors and tell the neighbours you’re hosting a swingers’ party, dealing drugs or building up your collection of cats –...
