Review: Halo 2 (Campaign)

Incredibly unpopular opinion time: I’m not a fan of the Halo campaign. Though there’s some absolutely stunning set pieces, a number of brilliantly wide open battles and really groundbreaking enemy AI that still stands out as impressive even today, there are so many issues with the way the narrative is handled and the level design of more than a few […]

Review: Stars Rush

Available on itch.io (works in browser and on mobile) There’s nothing groundbreaking or revolutionary about Stars Rush. It’s a cute little game – that’ll work in your browser or just […]

Review: Titanfall 2 (Campaign)

I never got around to playing the original Titanfall, which released on Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC in 2014. Titanfall was a big deal when it was announced; the first game from Respawn Entertainment, headed up by Infinity Ward co-founders Jason West and Vince Zampella – who’d left Activision in a storm of controversy involving unpaid bonuses, alleged insubordination […]

Set in the year 2111, SpyHack sees you in control of agents from the Advanced Technology Division (ADT), an organisation dedicated to protecting humanity from the unethical operations of the technology corporations that rule the world. The ultimate goal is […]

First Impressions: Neon Abyss

Though the number of indie games that have roguelite elements or structures seems to be increasing exponentially, there are certain elements that make these elements really appealing, both from the designer’s and player’s perspective. Chief among these is the procedural generation, which usually helps to keep things feeling suitably fresh, exciting and surprising when done right. The level of challenge […]

X-Men: 20th Anniversary

It was a very different time for superhero movies in the late 90s/early 00s. As is often the case with Hollywood, the failure of one specific movie was seen as the death knell for the entire genre – in this case, Batman & Robin was the harbinger of the apocalypse for superhero movies. Rather than concentrate on the fact that […]

Movie Review: Scoob! (2020)

At first glance, Scoob! seems like it’s going to be an origin story for our favourite scaredy-dog and his mystery solving friends. Yet it soon becomes clear that it’s a shameless, awkward and somewhat cynical attempt to set up a shared universe featuring the classic Hanna-Barbera characters from the 60s and 70s. It all starts off nicely, with a young […]

Review: Sisters Royale

Available Now on: PS4, Switch, Xbox One – Version Played: Xbox One Though Sisters Royale released earlier this year on PS4 and Switch, the Xbox One version has only just gone on sale – and it’s the port for Microsoft’s console that I’ve been able to play. If you went into Sisters Royale completely blind, it’d probably be a huge […]

Board Game News: Marvel Villainous

Not only have Ravensburger been on an incredible roll with classic movie licensed games in recent years (see games such as Jaws, Jurassic Park Danger! and even the brilliantUniversal Monsters-meet-Pandemic action of Horrified), but they’ve also seen enormous success with their Disney Villainous series of games. In Disney Villainous, players compete to be the most wickedly evil character from a […]

Preview: Destroy All Humans!

I was a massive fan of the first Destroy All Humans! game, which – somewhat unbelievably – launched way back in 2005 on the original Xbox and PlayStation 2. Though it seems somewhat dated by today’s standards, fifteen years ago its deliciously dark humour and satirical look at 1950s America through the eyes of a satisfyingly evil alien was an […]

Weekly Round-Up

Just as yesterday was the first time in a long time that I’ve looked at my recent Game Pass Adventures, I’ve not done a round up of my articles for quite a while either. It’s always useful for me to take a look back at what I’ve covered too, because I seem to be able to cover quite a bit […]

Game Pass Adventures

It’s been a while since I last wrote an article covering the games that I’ve been playing on Game Pass, but there seems to have been an awful lot of conversation on social media recently about the Xbox One’s biggest selling points – and almost everyone in the discussion agreed that Game Pass has been an absolutely incredible service that’s […]
