Project X Zone 2 review

If the original Project X Zone wasn’t enough to scratch your crossover itch, this sequel offers more of the same. Those hoping for massive changes to its predecessor’s basic gameplay, though, will remain disappointed, as Project X Zone 2 doubles down on the hope that its character interactions make up...

Final Fantasy Explorers review

The best thing about Final Fantasy’s template is that it’s so variable: you’ve got an established set of monster types, jobs and magic that can bend and fit into practically any genre. But just because they can, doesn’t always mean they should. Final Fantasy Explorers is Square’s attempt at aping...

Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon review

Although the main Pokémon games are naturally the most lucrative for Nintendo, there remains a cult following who love its spin-off series, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon. Over the years – much like the main games – it too has tended to stick to a formula, with each new instalment only making...

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...

When a certain moustached plumber waltzed his way out of the platforming genre and into the turn-based battles of the RPG back in 1996 we all laughed. Mario in a legitimate 15+ hour adventure? Bah! And then we all realised it was absolutely brilliant, wiped the crumbs of humble pie...

Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash review

This year, Chibi-Robo turns ten, but this fifth outing for the robotic handyman will only provide further frustration for fans praying he’ll one day become more than a bit player in Nintendo’s roster. While past Chibi-Robo games have been 3D free-roaming affairs, Zip Lash is Skip’s first attempt at putting...

Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson review

This game is about breasts. That’s it. There really isn’t anything deeper to it, not at all. There’s conflict, sure, and some poorly localised, badly acted and awfully translated story to do with (what else?) revenge, but for the most part it’s about breasts. There are two groups of young...
