Ben Salter's Reviews

Ben is an Australian games writer and pioneer in the use of the term "current-gen" to actually refer to the current-generation of consoles. He has been to E3 five times, but can't really remember any of them. It's all a blur of our most ambitious abundance of caffeinated beverages ever.

May 31, 2019

Like Ashes Cricket before it, Cricket 19 takes a good thing and touches it up. Its strength is definitely when bat meets ball, which is largely the same as Ashes Cricket, but its focus has been on enhancing everything around that.

The tweaks mostly relate to Toadette/Peachette and Nabbit as playable characters, but nothing really stands out.

When was the last time you had three (or seven) mates over to sit on your couch and play a game all night?

5.5 / 10.0 - Big Bash Boom
Dec 3, 2018

BBL fans looking for a quick fix will stick with the free mobile game. While there should have been a place for Big Bash Boom between the two, it’s priced itself out of contention

Civilization VI on Switch is my favourite way to play.
