Review: Yoshi’s New Island (Nintendo 3DS)

Yoshi’s New Island on Nintendo 3DS gives fans of the series a much needed fix after seven long years of inactivity from the franchise, but try as it might to throw in a few new gameplay mechanics it doesn’t manage to recreate the series in any profound way. Yoshi’s New …

Review: Cubemen 2 (Wii U)

Cubemen 2 on the surface looks unassuming and even rough around the edges. Like a great book, it is subject to being judged by the cover perhaps all too harshly. Pull back the veil though and you will find a great wealth of content that is as enjoyable as it …

Review: Super Mario 3D World (Wii U)

Super Mario 3D World encapsulates everything wholesome about Nintendo and underlines that despite what you may read on the internet, these folks know what they’re doing with Wii U.

Review: Contrast (PlayStation 4)

Contrast is a unique spin on the puzzle/platformer genre, rather than sticking to tradition like LIMBO or Braid, Contrast adopts a 2D meets 3D approach that, while ambitious, ultimately falls short of what could have been. Set in a 20’s Noir style atmosphere in the year 1923, Contrast sets you …

Review: WWE2K14 (PlayStation 3)

WWE2K14 is the first WWE game since 2K Sports gained the WWE license from the now defunct publisher THQ. Many may think that the take-over, which happened halfway into the game’s development period may have had a negative impact on this release, they were very wrong indeed. While WWE2K14 isn’t …

Review: The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (Nintendo 3DS)

Back in my day, we didn’t have “textures” and “physics” in our games. When we got home from school (we had to walk, barefoot, in the snow), we’d have to manually load a game cartridge into our console and play with a controller tethered by cable. Grand Theft Auto didn’t …
