Psychonauts 2 Review

The wait has been enough to drive a person crazy, but Psychonauts 2 is finally available to play. The beloved indie darling has lost none of its charm being developed by a now fully-fledged Microsoft studio. Instead, it’s a must-play platformer that justifies itself over and over again. Because realistically, a sequel to Psychonauts could have been a disaster. Reviving any classic is tough, especially when there was only ever one entry. But Double Fine have succeeded, and we’re all…

Marvel’s Avengers: War for Wakanda Review

In the latest DLC expansion for Marvel’s Avengers (after an insanely long marketing campaign advertising this), we finally get to visit Wakanda. I have been a fan of this game since it first came out for its SINGLE player campaign and story. I think it’s one of the better-written stories we have seen in a Marvel game ever, the main problem with the game is the shoe-horning of multiplayer which isn’t really needed at all. This latest installment has us…

Fort Triumph Review (Xbox Series)

Fort Triumph is a challenging fantasy turn-based tactics game where permanent death is a possibility at any moment. How’s that for pressure? Lead a band of heroes with different skill sets through a witty, parody fantasy plot. Missions with various objectives are waiting for you on tiled procedural maps—whether in story mode or skirmish, prepare yourself for a grand adventure. ● Utilize your surroundings: Every tree or boulder is a potential weapon in battle. ● Strategize: Choose between four factions…

Outriders Review

Outriders is a very interesting experiment and take on multiplayer gaming, while not a game as a service it would be interesting to see if they offer anything beyond the campaign down the line because there is nothing there to drive me to get better loot or return to the game outside of creating a new character of a different class. But it is a very FUN game to play with friends if nothing else really grabs you about it. Plus it was an excellent addition to Gamepass, which is definitely helping the player count I think a lot. I definitely think this is a ...

Microsoft Flight Simulator Review

It’s incredible to think that a mere week ago I’d have been deadly in the pilot’s seat of a plane. Now, thanks to Microsoft Flight Simulator on Xbox Series X, I’d be merely very dangerous. Yes, thanks to this masterclass in design, I’ve actually learnt a thing or two. I’m only half-joking. Okay, so very few people who play this game are going to end up capable of taking to the skies. But, man, it does a good job of…

F1 2021 Review (Xbox Series)

Starting from pole position in the opening race of the season, I’ve got high hopes for the ensuing 29 laps around Bahrain’s circuit. Five red lights and away we go!    I get wheelspin off the line and am instantly surrounded by Mercedes; sandwiched through a turn, I clip my nose on Lewis Hamilton’s tire, damaging the front end and sending the defending champion down the field. Max Verstappen takes the opportunity to jump into the lead. Instead of pitting…

A Plague Tale: Innocence – Next-Gen Review

An historic Last of Us with rats instead of zombies. There ya go – everything you need to know about A Plague Tale: Innocence. Asobo have almost cracked the Naughty Dog code straight out of the gate with their first game in this style, and that’s incredible. ‘Almost’ is carrying a lot of weight in that sentence though. Intention doesn’t usually mean an awful lot in reviews – something is successful or it’s not – but here I think it’s…

Curved Space Review (Xbox Series)

Curved space is a new take on the familiar twin stick shoot-em up, with a kicking soundtrack and unique gameplay style, but is it enough? Curved Space is an intense arcade-style twin-stick shooter that takes the classic formula and plunges it into the weirdest reaches of space. Battle cosmic space-invading spiders across curved landscapes where bullets hug the terrain while the horizon drops sharply out of sight. Inspired by arcade classics, players will have to hunt for weapon power-ups and…
