Madden NFL 19 1

Madden NFL 19 Review: Fumbling the Longshot

Madden NFL 19 has plenty of refinements and new features to make it enticing to fans of the series, but its story mode pales in comparison to last year's.
Flipping Death 3

Flipping Death Review: Humorous Possessions

From the makers of Stick it to the Man, Flipping Death has you filling in for the Grim Reaper while he goes for a holiday on the moon. Yes, really.

We Happy Few Review: An Eye-Pleasing But Uneven Dystopia

If you’re prepared to stomach the game’s less appetising sections, you’ll still get a little Joy out of We Happy Few.  

City of the Shroud Review: Story is King

Stephen King once said ‘Story is king’. City of the Shroud epitomises this approach, putting narrative at the heart of what it does, and emerging triumphant as a result.
Dead Cells

Dead Cells Review: Life is Like a Box of Chocolates

More roguelike than metroidvania, Motion Twin's Dead Cells is a game that will continually kick your ass. But you'll keep going back for more.

Overcooked 2 Review: Bigger, Better, Yummier

Overcooked 2 delivers everything that made the first game so great, but in a bigger, better and more appetising package.

Trago Review: An Endless Loop Packed With Creativity

Trago is an intriguing and unique narrative-driven game about four nights in a bar, and one drunk loser’s dawning realisation about the true nature of his friends.
Salt and Sanctuary

Review: Salt and Sanctuary Brings a Dark World to the Switch

Now available on Nintendo Switch, you'll die, die and then die again before you even begin to conquer Salt and Sanctuary.
Jump Gunners 3

Review: Jump Gunners is Pure Multiplayer Mayhem

Got a trio of friends that like frenzied multiplayer action? Buy Jump Gunners and get them around. You're guaranteed to have a laugh.
Code of Princess EX

Code of Princess EX Review: Zzz… Hack and Slash… Zzz

Code of Princess EX's combat just isn't fun enough to keep you playing. Which is a shame, because there's plenty of content on offer.

Sleep Tight Review: A Mostly Quiet Night

A straightforward take on the tower defence/survival genre, Sleep Tight fails to capture the imagination and excitement of its setting.

This Is The Police 2 Review: Bigger, Bolder and Better

This Is The Police 2, sequel to the surprise indie hit released in 2016, does everything its predecessor did and more. There is more drama, there is more police management and there is a hell of a lot more action.
Gene Rain

Review: Gene Rain is a Mistake

You could play Gene Rain, or you could play a good third-person cover shooter like Gears of War or Uncharted. It's up to you.
Remothered 2

Remothered: Tormented Fathers Review: Fear and Frustration

Remothered: Tormented Fathers is one of those games that you really want to love, but can't because it keeps kicking you in the face.

Review: oOo Ascension is Reflex-Testing and Rage-Inducing

If arcade thrills are your thing and you can view failure as a learning experience, then oOo Ascension will be right up your street.

Mugsters Review: Wacky and Wonderful

Small games from smaller studious continue to amaze me with their effortless charm and unbound creativity, and Mugsters is easily one of those games.
Archangel 1

Review: Archangel: Hellfire Really Makes You Feel Like You’re Controlling a Mech

Lots of games let you take control of giant mechs, but there aren't many that truly convey the feel of being in one. Archangel: Hellfire does.

The Council: Episode 3 – Ripples Review

Episode three of The Council seems a little far-fetched at times, but it does enough to keep the story just as engrossing as ever.
Aces of the Luftwaffe Squadron 3

Aces of the Luftwaffe – Squadron Review: Fun For Up to Four Players

Need a palette cleanser? Form up with your pilot friends and shoot down some Nazis in HandyGames' Aces of the Luftwaffe - Squadron.
Mega Man X Legacy Collection

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 + 2 Review

Containing all eight of the much-loved Mega Man X games, Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 + 2 is a must-have for fans of the Blue Bomber.
