For many of us Evil Dead holds a special place in our hearts - how about Evil Dead The Game? The bloody masterpiece that is Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn is a right of passage for most teenage sleepovers and remains a landmark of horror history.

Dolmen Review: Dead Space

game review23 May 2022

Dolmen is years in the making and should feel like Dead Space mixed with Dark Souls. But do some design and technical issues make it feel more dead than deadly?

Sniper Elite 5 takes Karl Fairburne to the French countryside to thwart some Nazi plans once more. Gameplay improvements and new features make this installment feel familiar but still just as fun.

Is Cyberpunk 2077 Worth Going Back to After Patch 1.5?

Is Cyberpunk 2077 Worth Going Back to After Patch 1.5?

revisiting18 February 2022

CD Projekt RED didn't give up and the patching effort for Cyberpunk 2077 is still ongoing. New content, though modest, is still reaching the game. Patch 1.5, which is its next-gen upgrade, is a big step forward, though I, for one, won't be playing.

Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 Review - Refurbished Classic Instead of Brand New Ride

Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 Review - Refurbished Classic Instead of Brand New Ride

game review13 August 2021

The game about being a car mechanic is back. It's better, it's bigger, it's prettier, but overall it's a small step in the evolution of the series, rather than a significant revolution.

A brand new action RPG set in the wild west with a supernatural twist, Weird West balances challenging combat with a fully fleshed out western setting that begs to be explored.

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Review: Slice and Dice

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Review: Slice and Dice

game review01 April 2022

It’s amazing that a DLC was the inspiration for Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. But is a fantasy twist to the Borderlands formula what the series needs to shake things up or are you just getting more of the same?

As merciless as Dark Souls but as liberating as Breath of the Wild, Elden Ring gives you an experience unique to each person and one that is worth discovering.

Elex 2 Review: A Flawed Improvement

game review28 February 2022

Elex 2 is an improvement on the original and brings with it a new threat Jax must defeat with the help of his friends. It’s still feels like a eurojank game, though, so it does have its flaws.

Forza Horizon 5 Review - The King Becomes Emperor

game review04 November 2021

The best racing game just became even better, and it doesn’t look like anything is going to claim the crown from Forza Horizon 5 anytime soon. However, “the best” doesn’t mean “perfect.” The competitors still have a chance to seize the throne.

The start of baseball season is here and with it comes the new MLB The Show 22. Is this the best baseball sim out there you should be playing or is it more of the same?

Cyberpunk 2077 on PlayStation 4 is Still Busted After a Year

revisiting14 December 2021

After less than a year, I decided to revisit the last-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 to see if anything has changed. The conclusion was painful: not much or almost nothing.

With an original cast and storyline, the video game version of Guardians of the Galaxy rivals that of the movies. But what parts of it are cinematic and where does it fall short? Read our review.

FAR: Changing Tides is an indie game about a journey through a devastated world. And while it is pretty, it could have been much better.

Chorus Review: Satisfying Combat Distracts From A Lackluster Protagonist

Chorus Review: Satisfying Combat Distracts From A Lackluster Protagonist

game review03 December 2021

Chorus misses out on the opportunity to let the player decide who the protagonist is, choosing instead to force a dramatic end-of-the-world scenario on the player that cheapens the ability to explore and take on side-missions. Read our review.

There's More to The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle than Sexy Times in Dumpsters

revisiting23 May 2020

I played The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle. I hugged bugs and garbage bags. I slept in a dumpster, I ate in it, used it as a place to cultivate the body and soul; it was a source of livelihood. It was my personal IKEA. And I could slide ladders like firemen!

Rainbow Six Extraction is now out and boy oh boy, do we have a lot to say about it. One thing we can't say in this review is that it's going to be nice, though. Read about all the missed opportunities and find out whether the game is still worth buying.

Know by heart Review - Russian Coming-of-Age Story From the Creators of Pathologic

game review12 February 2022

A provincial Russian town in 2001 seems like a perfect setting for a story, especially if this story is centered around young adults and told by the creators of Pathologic. Sadly, the premise turns out to be much more interesting than the game itself.
