… Kick, Punch, It’s all in the review.
Back in December 1996, NanaOn-Sha released the first influential rhythm game and created the ultimate Rap God. Parappa The Rapper. Almost 21 years on, Sony have listened to the players and brought this all time classic to the PS4 – but how does it hold up? Does it get a karate chop or did it leave me believing? Continue reading
The best thing about reviewing games is that sometimes you get given a game that you’ve never heard of, in a genre you don’t particularly enjoy, and it turns out to be a damned good experience.
*Spoiler Alert* Demetrios is one such game. Continue reading
Star Wars Battlefront is one of the best supported games this generation. It has received 4 DLC packs that have seen an upward trend in quality – from classic characters, weapons and locations to the harsh desert world of Jakku and even the surface of Scarif.
They have saved the best piece of DLC to last though, with X-Wing VR Mission which is truly jaw dropping. More than this, and I say this without hyperbole, it is one of the best gaming experiences of my life. Continue reading

WARNING : The following will contain MAJOR spoilers of the games story. If you haven’t finished it please go and do so then return to read the review after!
Infinite Warfare is undoubtedly the black sheep of the franchise – since its reveal it has met with nothing but derision from the hardcore fans who wanted “boots on the ground” gameplay and none of this “space bullshit”.
The thing is though, Infinite Warfare has done a number of things really well and the hatred of the title stems from nothing else other than “this is not a thing I want; give me my thing please” mentality.
Perhaps the best thing that came from Infinite Warfare is Jackal Assault. A free VR experience that does not require the base game – if you have the PSVR headset and 5 spare minutes you can experience this mode for yourself.
And I think you want to try this… Continue reading
With the advent of consumer VR we have been promised new gaming experiences; the kind that had been, up until now, impossible!
Yet here we have ‘Until Dawn: Rush of Blood’ giving gamers a chance to play a genre that had been placed on the scrap heap thanks to the dawn of the HD era.
‘Rush of Blood’ is an old-school on-rails shooter in the vein of ‘House of the Dead’ and it is one hell of a ride! Continue reading
