Titan Souls review

There was a boss in Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past so evil that it earned eternal infamy among Zelda fans; his name was Moldorm. One slip and, with a single hit, the agile giant worm would bash Link off the floating platform to the level below, instantly...

Cities: Skylines review

It’s not all that fair to lavish too much hatred on the last SimCity. Mired as it was by a PR disaster that’ll feature in history books and ultimately leading to the closure of a beloved studio, it’d feel wrong to hate it too much. Especially since it was actually...

Zombie Army Trilogy review

The very concept of Nazi zombies has become a weirdly prolific subgenre. We’ve seen plenty of zombie modes in Call Of Duty over the years, and Zombie Army Trilogy itself began life as expansions for the Sniper Elite series. But does stretching what is a series of kitschy add-ons into...

Bladestorm: Nightmare review

Despite being from the same developer, Bladestorm isn’t really a Dynasty Warriors-type game Sure, you will be cutting through swathes of enemies on vast battlefields, only here you will be holding buttons down instead of mashing them for combos.

Shelter 2 review

A spiritual sequel to 2013’s best badger simulator isn’t what we’d necessarily refer to in the industry as a ‘sure thing’. Shelter was an interesting, though entirely unconvincing, attempt to utilise the interactive form to deliver a different type of game. While the idea was solid – tasking you with...

Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries review

Darker takes on fairy tales may be en vogue at the minute, thanks to the likes of Once Upon a Time and Grimm on TV, but in games they’re nothing new. American McGee’s Alice came out in 2000, for instance, making it potentially older than some of you reading this....

LA Cops review

It’s immediately apparent which game inspired LA Cops the moment you start playing it. It may sport an isometric viewpoint and polygonal characters rather than its muse’s top-down sprite-based visuals, but this is clearly a Hotline Miami follower, albeit one in which this time the player is on the other...
