Geoffrey Tim's Reviews

One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

8 / 10.0 - Alien: Isolation
Oct 14, 2014

Unflinchingly tense and gruelling, Creative Assembly's Alien: Isolation is a better sequel to Ridley Scott's original movie than the film that followed it. Dripping with as much atmosphere and attention to detail as it is with acidic Xenomorph spittle, it's hardly let down by its weak narrative and unnecessary padding.

7.2 / 10.0 - NBA 2K15
Nov 3, 2014

Online issues and forced connectivity for single player modes keep NBA2K15 from being the year's best sports game. Impressive visuals and rock-solid core mechanics however, make it a necessary addition to any NBA fan's library.

7.5 / 10.0 - Shadow Warrior
Nov 4, 2014

Harkening back to a bygone era, Flying Wild Hog's nostalgic re-imagining of Shadow Warrior is filled to the brim with bad words, b-grade jokes, buckets of blood, bullets and blades. And sometimes, that's all a gamer needs.

With clever puzzles and a dash of modern sensibilities inspired by the BBC show, Crimes and Punishments is an easy recommendation to armchair detectives - and the first to let players really experience being Sherlock Holmes.

8 / 10.0 - LittleBigPlanet 3
Nov 18, 2014

A whimsical and charming adventure, LittleBigPlanet 3 makes a few welcome changes to the core game; namely new characters and new powerups four our old knitted chum, Sackboy. With an even more robust set of creation tools, it's a game of limitless possibilities.

For long time fans of Super Stardust, this is probably a disappointment. There's not much that's new, save for a new mode or two. If you've never played the game before though, this is as complete a package as you'll get.

5.5 / 10.0 - The Order: 1886
Feb 20, 2015

Great visuals alone do not a great game make - and there's unfortunately very little in The Order: 1886 to elevate it beyond being a pretty, but shallow and insipid shooter. It commits the one sin no interactive entertainment should: it's painfully boring.

5 / 10.0 - Mario Party 10
Mar 16, 2015

If you appreciated the streamlined vehicle approach introduced in Mario Party 9, and have yet to bored silly by mini-games you'll probably enjoy the vast amount of content that on offer here. It's hard, however, to shake the feeling that we've seen, and played this all too many times before.

It's hard not to be impressed by Xenoblade Chronicles, not least because it's rekindled my long-dormant love for a genre of games I thought I'd never be interested in again. It's one of the best JRPGs in a generation, capable of inspiring wonder - and it fits in your hand. It may have been one of the Wii's swansongs but it's a great start for the New 3DS.
