J-Stars Victory VS+ review

A breezy and mechanically simplistic offering that occasionally entertains almost despite itself, J-Stars Victory VS+ is fan service at its loosest and laziest. Part meandering, low-stakes adventure game and part rambunctious brawler, it’s an outing defined by its incessant stop-start nature; a facet that illustrates that its ideal home is...

Steins;Gate review

The visual novel is an interesting style of game – an ostensibly Japanese curio that’s increasingly gaining traction in the mainstream (that is to say, outside of the hardcore JRPG/anime audience). The terribly stylised Steins;Gate is a prime example of this – offering up enough of the genre’s bizarre storytelling...

Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed review

The Hyperdimension Neptunia series is dangerously close to being a one-note joke drawn out over seven (and counting) games. That gag being the consoles we know and love, re-imagined as anime girls and oh look their clothes fell off. Yet while Hyperdimension Neptunia U (confusingly, not a Wii U game)...

Not A Hero review

There’s no hiding what Not A Hero wants to be. It’s brash, it’s silly, it’s frenetic – it is what videogames are supposed to be. You play as a freelance anti-hero looking to ply your wares – namely gun-toting and visceral murder – against a selection of criminals to help...

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster review

Though we only covered the Remastered version of Square Enix’s Final Fantasy X package last year, we thought it was important to give the PS4 version of the collection a look-in, too – had all three formats of the game come out at the same time, it would have meant...

Toukiden: Kiwami review

With Nintendo currently holding a firm grip on the Monster Hunter series, those without a Nintendo console must surely feel left out, especially with the lack of beast-laden titles on the other current-gen boxes. Toukiden: Kiwami is looking to change that, giving fans of the aforementioned series something unique, yet...

OlliOlli 2: Welcome To Olliwood review

If the original OlliOlli could very broadly be described as a 2D version of EA Black Box’s Skate, then its sequel is essentially a 2D version of Neversoft’s Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3. Any semblance of realism has been unceremoniously kickflipped to the curb, and the ludicrous gameplay is augmented...

Hohokum review

When artist Richard Hogg collaborated with developer Honeyslug for Frobisher Says!, the result was a sensory assault; an unremitting torrent of cartoonish visuals matched with slapstick larks, each skit demanding full attention and instant understanding of its simplistic concept from its participants in order to succeed. Now, two years later,...
