Modern Review: Game Dev Story (Android / iOS)


To confess, I am a bit of a sim nut: Sim City, Theme Park, Gansters: Organised Crime and more recently I have sunk my gnashers into Prison Architect (personal tip on the latter - build a fence first...) But apart from the sublime indie Xbox Live game Arcade Craft, I have had an itch for a video game sim that I couldn't scratch. Game Dev Story by Ka [ … ]

Review: Race The Sun (PS Vita)


The next time you look out of the window and see dark, foreboding storm clouds gathering on the horizon, stop and think. Before you bemoan the lack of sunshine and consider booking a holiday to warmer climes, stop and think about the pilot of the lone craft in Flippfly’s latest PS4 and Vita title, Race The Sun. For you, a lack of sun means a chilly [ … ]

Review: Futuridium Extended Play Deluxe (PS Vita)


The PS Vita is quickly becoming the platform of choice for indie developers - I certainly can’t recall another mainstream system being so well supported by small developers with modest backing. The Vita hardware itself is probably a main reason; it is a powerful system and - so I’m told - a fairly painless machine to develop for. This is no doubt h [ … ]

Review: The Bureau: XCOM Declassified (Xbox 360)


Games which have a prolonged development process usually have issues – Duke Nukem anyone? The Bureau: XCOM Declassified had been announced way back in 2006 and in 2010 it was to be a first person shooter named ‘XCOM.’ 2K Games set their demo stall out: a 1950s/60s setting where agents do battle with an alien masquerading as a housewife. Then all he [ … ]

Review: Q*bert Rebooted (PC / Mac)


It’s never easy to reboot something like Q*Bert, or by extension any beloved arcade classic. This is because a tightrope has to be walked by the developers – as the formula of the original title can be tinkered with so little that it makes the endeavour utterly pointless, or the game is made so different to its inspiration that a new IP would of pr [ … ]

Modern Review: Ride To Hell Retribution (Xbox 360)


Let’s get right to the point shall we? Ride To Hell (RTH) is not a good game. At all. It is rubbish. It is so poor it sits happily on my shelf of woe alongside Onechanbara and Vampire Rain. If shonk was a real word there would be a picture of lead protagonist Jake Conway next to its definition in the dictionary. With that in mind, let us don our le [ … ]

Modern Review: Attack Of The Friday Monsters (Nintendo 3DS)


Every now and then, an unheard gaming gem is seen and heard by so many people without even realising it. Think Psychonaughts for example – many of us in the gaming community know of its brilliance but let’s be honest – who actually bought it? It isn’t comparable to Tim Schafers’ effort in terms of genre; it couldn’t be further from it if it tried. [ … ]

Review: Ys Memories of Celceta (PS Vita)


Falcom's Ys series has been around for nearly 27 years appearing on a large number of formats over time. The most famous of those would probably be Ys I&II on the TurboGrafx-CD, with the adventures still continuing on the PS Vita today.

Review: Earth Defense Force 4 (PlayStation 3)


Finally the classic gameplay and style from the Chikyû Boueigun / Earth Defence Force / EDF series is back, but now with a truly incredible force behind it!.

Modern Review: Dark (360)


Kalypso’s Dark potentially has all the hallmarks of a budget sleeper hit. If the blurb on the box is anything to go by the game is stealth action mixed with RPG elements. Add in the setting – hoodie wearing vampires stalking the shadows brooding a lot and it seems to tick all the boxes. Sadly though, Dark does not manage to excite, thrill or do any [ … ]


Modern Review: DuckTales Remastered (Xbox 360)


If you have played the original DuckTales game on the NES (considered to be one of THE NES classics) then this nostalgia fuelled trip is definitely for you. If you missed it way back when then fret not: it is a vibrant and fun delve into Duckburg and its inhabitants.
