Review: Fear Effect (Sony PlayStation)


By the end of the 90’s FMV (full motion video) had become stale. Dodgy acting and even dodgier costumes and backdrops were shown the door. In its place became a new wave of ‘cool’ and experimentation in graphical styles in order to tell a story. One such case was Kronos Digital Entertainment’s Fear Effect. The hype for this game was immense. Everyt [ … ]

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: TxK (PS Vita)


In 1981 Atari released the arcade classic Tempest, designed by Dave Theurer. The follow ups to the tube shooter daddy were made by British industry legend Jeff Minter. Now in 2014 Jeff Minter and Llamasoft are back with TxK a spiritual successor to the Tempest series on the PlayStation Vita.

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.

Modern Review: Broken Sword 5, Part One (PC)


Adventure games are dead. At least, that is what certain factions of the videogaming press would have you believe. However, one only needs to look at success of Revolution Software's Kickstarter campaign to get Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse off the ground for that argument to be called into question. The initial request of $400,000 was blow [ … ]
