Unravel Review – An Indie Gem or a Tangled Mess?

If I were to choose just one word to describe Coldwood’s 2016 2D platforming puzzler, Unravel, it would be “charming”. Everything about this game oozes charm; from the muted visuals, unique puzzles and of course, our knitted hero, Yarny. The game has a quiet confidence that knows exactly what it wants to be and tells the kind of story it […]

5 Reasons Aloy is En-Route to Becoming a Gaming Icon

When I first reviewed Horizon Zero Dawn, I referenced the fact that Sony UK product manager, Jon Edwards, commented that he believed lead protagonist, Aloy, would become the “PlayStation icon of the future”. At the time, I remember thinking that these comments were made a little prematurely seeing as the game hadn’t even been released. However, after spending an unhealthy […]

Horizon Zero Dawn Review – Rise of the Machines

Back in February Sony made the very bold statement that they anticipated Horizon Zero Dawn protagonist, Aloy, to become the “PlayStation icon of the future”. Was this a premature comment thrown out there weeks before the game was released? Or was it simply a Publisher so confident in its latest IP it couldn’t wait to express its role in the […]

Here They Lie (PSVR Review) – Walking into Madness

I’m of the firm belief that Virtual Reality and horror are a match made in heaven. So when I finally acquired a PlayStation VR Headset, Here They Lie was among the first titles I wanted to play. Developed by Tangentlemen, Here They Lie, is a three-hour, first-person psychological horror game that places you in the shoes of its main character. […]

Arkham (PSVR Review) – Becoming Batman

“It’s too short!” You hear the internet cry in uproar. Whilst it’s true that Arkham VR clocks in at just over one hour, those who criticise the game’s running time are overlooking one significant aspect: it’s one hour you get to be Batman. Putting on the cowl of the Caped Crusader is something many have long waited for and with […]

5 of the Best Games of 2016

For many, 2016 was a bit of a shit year. With controversial political outcomes, a plethora of celebrity deaths and people just generally sucking, a lot of people can’t wait to see the back of 2016. However, for gamers 2016 was a bit of a treasure trove. From AAA smash hits, indie darlings, anticipated sequels and a game that took […]

Does Dishonored 2 emerge from the shadows of its predecessor?

When a sequel to Dishonored was announced last Summer, I was sceptical that Arkane Studios would be able to recapture what they were able to create with the original. With its immersive world building, unique gameplay and an engaging story of betrayal and revenge, Dishonored rightfully earned the title of ‘Game of the Year’ in 2012. With its second instalment, […]

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles – can the spin-off breathe new life into the franchise?

For the record, I was a huge fan of the early Assassin’s Creed games. The first couple of games were actually some of my favourite titles on the PS3. The concept, stories and interesting game mechanics meant it was a firm favourite. However, with their annual releases, glitches and seeming reluctance to innovate, the franchise lost its appeal. Yet, with […]

Gravity Rush (PSVita Review) – Does it reach the stars or fail to take off?

Games like Gravity Rush don’t come along often. Originally released in 2012 for PSVita, and later remastered for PS4 in 2016, Gravity Rush has a clear artistic style; with its visuals, storytelling and unconventional game mechanics all following a consistent and unique creative vision. The game follows lead protagonist, Kat who is suffering from amnesia and begins the game not […]
