8 / 10.0 - Pathologic 2
Aug 11, 2019

A very difficult game that can be frustrating at times, but ultimitely does keep you entertained. Worth adjusting the difficulty to make it more playable.

6.5 / 10.0 - Rage 2
Jun 16, 2019

It's a game that's definitely worth playing, but it could have been so much better than it really is. For all the vibrant pink and yellow, it's the game equivalent of beige.

This is a decent title that doesn't take itself too seriously. It's not an epic saga, but it's a nice little diversion and it's worth a play.

9 / 10.0 - Stellar Interface
May 14, 2019

The accessibility of Stellar Interface makes it a brilliant induction to the often impenetrable bullet-hell genre, and the variety of different options, combined with addictive gameplay that keeps you coming back, makes it one of my favourite Switch games of 2019 so far.

6.5 / 10.0 - Game Dev Studio
Apr 1, 2019

It's a great achievement for a lone developer, but the choice of genre means that there are bigger games that do it better from larger companies. I can't say that you should rush out and buy it, but if you don't already have one of its competitors and want to help out a fledgling indie developer then it's worth a look.

5 / 10.0 - The Room
Jan 1, 2019

A great game, but with no value added it isn't worth buying over the mobile version. Too expensive for a game that's best played on a mobile screen anyway.

8 / 10.0 - Strange Brigade
Nov 25, 2018

Just like the first part of the trilogy, this doesn't change things up too much, rather it's just another level in a similar style to before with a few bells and whistles added. By this point, you'll already know if you do or don't like Strange Brigade. This isn't going to win over any new fans but If you don't need winning over, you most likely already have this or you probably want to go get it.

There's a huge amount of fun to be had here, but it's not a game that will appeal to those in the market for a realistic depiction of the joys of the internal combustion engine. Realism has been traded for pure insanity, so if you prefer something more like Forza or Gran Turismo then this won't be the game for you. If you were a fan of Rollcage, then you'll love this.

If you haven't already played the game, then there's not that much here that will make you rush out and get it, but for £7.99, nobody was really expecting that. If, like me, you really enjoyed the old-school romp as it was initially conceived, then this is more of the same with a little garnish to boot.

9 / 10.0 - Freedom Planet
Sep 27, 2018

This is clearly a game that takes its inspiration seriously, and is a lovingly-crafted tribute to a genre of games that a lot of people, are really fond of. No new additions compared to previous releases, but if you haven't already played this then don't hesitate to pick it up on the eStore.

7 / 10.0 - Graveyard Keeper
Sep 14, 2018

A solid and fun little farming type sim, but one that has a few issues. Although it's a bit rough around the edges, it's still worth a look.

6 / 10.0 - Not Tonight
Sep 11, 2018

Papers, Please in Brexit Britain, but at a higher price and not as fun. Feels like an opportunity wasted

9 / 10.0 - Strange Brigade
Sep 10, 2018

I wasn't expecting a huge amount from Strange Brigade, but what I got was a really enjoyable experience both offline and online. This was a pleasant surprise, as generally I'm not someone who would usually play online if I can avoid it. The fact that even I preferred playing online speaks volumes about Rebellion's efforts in making a game that's best played in co-op. There are a few things that could have been done better, but nothing that can't be overlooked. This is one of my favourite multiplayer games in a very long time.

This is a charming little interactive story that warms the heart even if it doesn't necessarily challenge the brain. If you like your games to be story driven with characters you'll end up caring about, this is a must-have.

9 / 10.0 - TANGLEWOOD
Aug 25, 2018

Overall, whilst Tanglewood has a few minor niggles, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it as a must-have title on either the Mega Drive or Steam. It's cute, colourful and great fun. It's also a great achievement and testament to the dedication Big Evil Corp have put into authenticity.

I might not have had the same amount of enjoyment from this add-on as I did from the main game, but I would still recommend picking it up, especially as the season pass will net you this, a new glove skin, and a second puzzle pack at a later date.

9 / 10.0 - FRAMED Collection
Aug 5, 2018

A great little pair of puzzle games here. Nothing new for owners of the iOS and Android versions, but if you don't already have them, this is definitely worth a play.

Playing this game is like playing four different games of varying quality. If they'd just stuck to one idea and executed it well, this could have been a winner. As it is, sadly this is a game which is a jack of all trades but master of none.

3 / 10.0 - Bouncy Bob
Jul 13, 2018

I can't think of a single redeeming feature about this game. It's about as entertaining as a night out in Milton Keynes. Poor controls, lazy graphics, very little gameplay and everything is just a long, drawn out frustratio

I can't stress enough how much I enjoyed Ni no Kuni II. It's one of the best JRPGs in years and it's a must-buy for fans of the genre. It's cute, thoroughly addictive and has more tweaks and statistics than you can shake a sword at. If you enjoyed the first game, you will love this.
