Escape Academy Review

If you love the experience of solving riddles, puzzles, or an escape room; but really dislike people, moving around, and potentially getting sweaty, then Escape Academy might be just your kind of game. The narrative for Escape Academy is a little tough to follow and honestly one of the only detractors of this game. You start off in a simple enough escape room in a run down building but somehow fall down a great rabbit hole of enrolling in an…

My Universe – Green Adventure – Farmers Friends Review

The latest entry in the My Universe games – best known I think for being well-crafted family friendly games that are easy enough to play for nongamers and young kids – have moved on to what I think is their greatest one to date with Green Adventure – Farmers Friends. Despite the complicated naming convention, the idea is pretty simple. The old tried and true story of you getting a run-down farm and bringing it back to glory—this time with…

Ape Escape (PlayStation 5) Review

Time travel, monkeys, a kid you really want to beat up – Ape Escape had it all. And now it can again on PlayStation 5. Thanks to the new PlayStation Plus release, the original PS1 classic has found new life, outputting at a higher resolution, with a handful of quality of life features and a trophy list. This is a great chance to relive the good old days or capture a monkey army for the first time. My only knowledge…

Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition Review

Even the Blade Runner version of 2019 looks like a dream compared to 2022. No pandemic, no crazy politics – just murder robots and really bad pollution. Oh, and new coke. So visiting it in video game format for the first time in 20 years felt like it was going to be a real treat. And in many ways it was. This enhanced edition of the original PC point and click game was a labour of love for the developers…

TMNT Shredder’s Revenge Review

Growing up I was a massive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan, and yes I mean the old show. I’m part of that generation, where we would get personal pan pizzas from Pizza Hut and even bought the musical album they put out as well as the tour video…I had it all, tons of figures, bed sheets, and video games. The Ninja Turtle video games have always held a special place in my heart, especially the arcade ones. Back when arcades…

Dungeon Defenders: Awakened Review

Dungeon Defenders: Awakened is co-op Tower Defence combined with epic Action RPG combat. Which to me definitely sounded like an odd blend for sure. Back in the day when I would do a lot more PC gaming, I would often really enjoy tower defence games, something about them was relaxing and almost therapeutic. This is not quite the same. While at it’s core foundation it’s definitely a tower defence, you select the types of traps, shields, whatever you want to…

Sniper Elite 5 Review

In the upcoming Sniper Elite 5, The award-winning series returns as Karl Fairburne fights to uncover Project Kraken in 1944 France. With enhanced kill cam, the genre-defining authentic sniping has never looked or felt better as you battle across immersive maps to stop the Nazi war machine in its tracks. Much like its predecessors Sniper Elite 5 brings the action in the most stylistic and brutal way it knows how. The series has been known for its kill cam, which…

Evil Dead: The Game Review

There have been a few attempts at Evil Dead games over the last few decades and as many asynchronous horror-related multiplayer games too. The stakes are high with the originally-named Evil Dead: The Game. Luckily, it’s an incredible time. It captures the feel of the films while also providing an enjoyable gameplay loop. Neither of those things were guaranteed. That doesn’t mean that it’s the perfect game by any means. This close to launch, there are a handful of issues…

Trek to Yomi Review

Japanese stuff is really in at the moment. Yet the likes of Trek to Yomi is a rare gem – a love letter to the old Japanese films, and to that old way of life we know so well from books. It’s a masterclass is atmosphere and is one of the bars for indie graphics. It’s also not always a great game. In many ways, it’s that old indie complaint. Style should not make up for gameplay, and to be…

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Review

The Lego games have been feeling a tad tired as of late. More than once I’ve jumped into a game wishing they would rebuild the franchise from scratch. You know – brick by brick. Enter Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. It certainly looks different enough on the surface, but is it as transformational as long-time fans might have hoped? The simple answer is no. It’s decent fun – especially if you’re a fan of the more involved modern Lego…
