Two Point Hospital Review

Two Point Hospital Review

Two Point Hospital takes the long neglected ideas of Theme Hospital,smooths off the rough edges and polishes the whole package beautifully.

Our Rating: 9/10

Planet Alpha Review

Planet Alpha Review

Planet Alpha is a gorgeous trek through an alien world and the strange timey wimey things that afflict it. While the pacing can occasionally feel a little bit off, the slower moments do allow you time to take everything in. The puzzles are the only real challenge throughout and most aren't so obtuse that they become frustrating so it works well. If you are after a striking world to get lost in then maybe this is the one for you.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition Review

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition Review

Divinity: Original Sin 2 was one of the best games of last year, console players were worse off for not getting to play it. The definitive edition rectifies this and changes some of the marginally less-than-stellar elements to create what is undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable CRPGs in a very long time, and a must play.

Our Rating: 10/10

Faeria: Fall Of Everlife Review

Faeria: Fall Of Everlife Review

Faeria has always been an intriguing game, with the Fall of Everlife expansion and the move away from free-to-play it has truly become something worth taking note of. The unique mechanics at play here really help it stand apart from the competition. With the addition of brand new cards including an army of yaks, now is the perfect time to jump in.

Our Rating: 8/10

Guacamelee 2 Review

Guacamelee 2 Review

Guacamelee 2 is a fantastic combination of jokes, knowing nods to other games and media, and titanium hard gameplay. Not only does it build on everything the first game did so well, it does it with the kind of spice that most sequels can only dream of. Grab your nachos and get involved.

Overcooked 2 Review

Overcooked 2 Review

A worthy successor to the original, Overcooked 2 delivers in all the ways you'd want it too, with room for a little more.

Our Rating: 9/10

Yakuza 0 Review

Yakuza 0 Review

Yakuza 0's slice of eighties Japan is gaudy, over the top and gloriously unashamed of itself in all the ways a majority of PC games aren't. The combination of fast paced combat, melodrama, comedy and mini-games provide a ton of fun for the asking price and the conversion from console to PC has been a resounding success. Absolutely worth your money and time.

Our Rating: 9/10

No Man's Sky Next Review

An astounding achievement. Hello Games deserve credit for creating one of the best games of this console generation - even if it did take a couple of years longer than planned!

MOTHERGUNSHIP Review

MOTHERGUNSHIP Review

MOTHERGUNSHIP gives you everything you expect from a FPS Bullet hell. Which is to say that there are a lot of bullets, both to dodge and to fire. It is a frenetic and chaotic shooter with a great crafting system that makes the whole thing feel like LEGO had an angry baby with Doom.
