Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Review

When Nintendo announced Captain Toad was getting his own game everyone was delighted, overjoyed in fact, thinking of a downloadable Captain Toad puzzle game. Then Nintendo said; “No, actually, this is a full retail release”, and it sounded a bit weird to everyone. The Captain Toad minigames in Super Mario 3D World were fun and cute, [&hellip Read more

Persona Q Review – Plenty of Personality

What happens when a spin-off of a hardcore JRPG crosses with a hardcore dungeon crawling JRPG? JRPG-ception, that’s what, and with Persona Q: Shadows of the Labyrinth I’m more than happy to continue going deeper… It’s the series that’s become so popular even Atlus have decided to forget about it ever being a spin-off. Shin [&hellip Read more

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris Review

When Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light released in 2010 it was the game that Tomb Raider fans had no idea they even wanted. A game traditionally about platforming and exploration suddenly became an isometric perspective multiplayer shooter with a healthy dose of puzzles and collectables. It was fantastic and featured more actual tomb [&hellip Read more

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham Review – More than the sum of its bricks

I still remember when LEGO Star Wars first released and I thought a LEGO game was a fun novelty. “A game where everything is made out of LEGO, even the characters? That sounds amusing!” I thought to myself. Well, as it turns out it was amusing enough to spawn seemingly endless amounts of LEGO-themed licensed [&hellip Read more

Tales of Hearts R Review

I think it’s fair to say at this point that the Tales series is rivalling the likes of Final Fantasy for the title of ‘Best JRPG Franchise’. Whilst the latest titles of Square Enix‘s juggernaut are either moving away from the single player roots or are quite controversial in their reception, Tales keeps taking strides [&hellip Read more

Earth is reaching the end of days and the planet’s greatest nations are launching the few chosen bastions of hope into space, so they will one day discover a new place to call home and continue the human race.

Stealth Inc 2 Review – A sleeper hit

stealth_inc_2_clones

It’s not often that a Wii U exclusive comes from a third party publisher, and despite the Wii U eShop having an extensive library now, there aren’t many games I would really call essential. However tiny this list may be, though, Stealth Inc 2 needs to be added to it, because it’s a lovely puzzle [&hellip Read more

Not too long ago we were plagued with shooter after shooter, and although the shooters are still releasing in full force, we’ve seen action games making resurgence – Bayonetta 2 released to huge acclaim, Hyrule Warriors was a surprise star, and now we have Samurai Warriors 4, [&hellip Read more
