8.5 / 10.0 - Far Cry 5
May 6, 2018

Far Cry 5 established itself as one of the best in the series, The game features some gorgeous scenery, an engaging story and the overall story is great fun and the theme is very realistic. The game mixes up the missions so it doesn't get repetitive halfway through the game. Far Cry 5 is a great entry to the series for newbies and veterans alike.

10 / 10.0 - Moss
Mar 24, 2018

While Moss is a short adventure, it's one filled with awe and wonder. The storytelling is superb with brilliant writing and a great atmosphere. The gameplay while basic is so much fun that you will never want to stop playing this game. If you have a PlayStation VR you need to pick up this game, Moss is a masterpiece that is going to go down in the history books for the first game of this genre to work and play well in VR.

7 / 10.0 - EA Sports UFC 3
Mar 4, 2018

UFC 3's career mode is where you will spend the majority of your time first, however after beating this you have a choice you can either spend all of your money on ultimate team or you can play online or single-player. The ultimate team mode is so microtransactions heavy that it left a bad taste in my mouth.

7.5 / 10.0 - Gravel
Mar 4, 2018

Gravel is a great racing experience for veterans and newcomers alike, with so many tracks and cars to unlock this game will keep you busy for a while. However being unable to find an online match has me worried that the replay value of this game isn't very good after you've played through the meat of the single-player game.

7 / 10.0 - Chaos on Deponia
Mar 1, 2018

Chaos On Deponia is a fun game, albeit with its flaws. The story is fun and is a nice adventure for families to enjoy together. The writing here is okay and the puzzles are fun but way too easy, they lack the depth that other games from this genre have. Overall you may enjoy this story if you have children and they are looking for their first video game experience, otherwise I would avoid picking this game up if you are expecting a great adventure like the Double Fine games.

7 / 10.0 - Strikers Edge
Feb 22, 2018

While I didn't have the best experience playing this title online, I did have a ton of fun playing against the AI. This title is one of those that is brilliant for parties but is also great for just playing by yourself or online with friends.

3.5 / 10.0 - Out of Ammo
Feb 16, 2018

While this review is hugely negative, the premise behind this game was a great one. While the execution wasn't great I believe that this game came out of the door too early, if the game had been delayed until later this year who knows if it would if had the same issues as it does now. Out Of Ammo is plagued with bugs and other issues, the core game is still there. While there isn't a huge amount of content to sink your teeth into, there are some fun moments to be had especially with a friend.

While the original release of KSP for consoles was a buggy mess, the new enhanced edition is a full blown masterpiece of a game. If you have ever wanted to become a rocket scientist then this is the game for you. With a huge variety of options, whatever spaceship you can imagine, you can build. The new control scheme is perfect for every kind of player.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope looks and performs great on PlayStation 4. With an incredible story, great graphical options, stunning visuals, this is a game for new and old fans alike.

Curse Of Osiris Is very fun on the first playthrough, however playing through the story on a second or third character can be very tiresome and not very fun. The raid is the biggest addition to this DLC and is the best part, if you haven't already bought the season pass and are on the fence just think, did I enjoy Crota's End? If the answer is yes then I highly recommend this DLC. If you played Destiny 2 for its story, then this DLC will disappoint you and I can't recommend it to you.

4 / 10.0 - Oh My Godheads
Dec 2, 2017

While Oh My Godheads may be fun with friends at a party, it just loses all of its value when it comes to playing against the AI. With the lack of any online multiplayer or real single player, this game loses all of its replay value in a matter of hours.

While Max: The Curse Of Brotherhood does have a good story, it has too many downfalls to forgive. The platforming just isn't up to par, and the checkpoints will have you throwing your controller at a wall in no time.

South Park:The Fractured But Whole is a fun experience for newcomers and fans of the TV series. While the combat can get repetitive, the story is told in true South Park fashion. If you enjoy South Park's humour, you should get this game, if you don't really like South Park, then you should wait until this game is on sale, and then still get it.

Middle-earth Shadow of War adds a lot to the already great formula, with the addition of sieges and the great additions to the nemesis system this is a game of the year contender for sure.

8 / 10.0 - Chaos;Child
Oct 26, 2017

While Chaos;Child doesn't do much to innovate the genre at all, I can't deny that the story, sound and art are incredible. Although, the Delusion trigger system feels pointless and changes next to nothing. This doesn't damage the story or any other aspect of the game, but is disappointing. Any fans of the series or graphic novels will thoroughly enjoy this game.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Videogame stands out from other LEGO games, not for the huge game changes but for the little additions that are often unappreciated. I thoroughly enjoyed this title and I am looking forward to playing more.

9 / 10.0 - The Escapists 2
Sep 17, 2017

The Escapists 2 adds a lot of content and is still the best prison escaping simulator available. There really aren't any major negatives here; if you enjoy the thought of planning prison escapes in a videogame you should pick this up right now.

8 / 10.0 - Infinite Minigolf
Aug 7, 2017

Infinite Mini Golf is a ton of fun, easy to control and is the best mini golf experience you can have without going to a course.

The story is fun and is one any veteran or newbie of this series will enjoy. The multiplayer adds lots of fun to the title and adds so much more time to the game if you enjoy it. The environments are bland and boring but overall this game is worth picking up just for the story alone.
