Late Nier Review

At first, I had a lot to say about this game, mostly positive remarks. I was initially impressed by how it played and the direction of the story, but after numerous playthroughs thanks to multiple endings, I’m resigned to saying that the game feels half-finished.

Late Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions Review

Welcome back Spidey-fans, to another amazing web-slinging adventure of not one, but four of our favourite hero, split across time and space, as The Amazing Spiderman and alternative versions team up to take on the might of Mysterio and co, powered by the power of a mysterious tablet.

Late Call Of Juarez: Bound In Blood Review

I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had momentarily played a Juarez game previously, resembling an arcade shoot-em up with cardboard cutouts, but having seen true 3D models in the screenshots, I was intrigued. So it was a nice surprise to find myself on the frontlines of the American Civil war.

Late Truck Racer Review

I’m still on with getting through my PS3 backlog, and having caught the racing bug, decided to give Truck Racer a go. This is a fantastic rally racing game, including trucks that just want to swing their ass out at every corner.

Late Monster Jam Battlegrounds Review

So I had a new third-party controller to try out after having to repair it when it arrived in the post this morning. I also have a massive PlayStation Plus backlog of games to get through, so today was a good day to start (and complete) Monster Jam Battlegrounds.

Early Shadow Of War Mobile Review

I haven’t played mobile games in years, and even after playing this for a full month, still don’t see the appeal. I laugh now when people complain that a console game might only contain a few minutes of a cutscene after hours of grinding. Friends, there are no cutscenes in mobile games!

Late Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Bros Review

Rejoice, for Paper Mario has been saved. Flying out of the ashes that was Sticker Stars, the series has been merged with the Mario & Luigi team, producing a game with the best of both worlds. Even Mario & Luigi benefit, as the issues players had in Dream Team, have been ‘papered’ over.

Late Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Review

Essentially it’s Mario Kart 7 re-skinned with Sega characters, but that’s not to say that it doesn’t bring some fresh ideas to the race track and it’s certainly just as fun. Don’t be blinded by the visuals, thinking this game is for kids, as its difficulty and “grown-up” rage induced fits speak otherwise.

Late Pokémon X (& Y) Review

This is it. Finally, a fully fledged 3D Pokémon rpg that I’ve been waiting for since childhood – that was 20 years ago! Now all I’ve got to do is just catch up on 20 years of Pokem… 850 fucking Pokémon species! I’d rather pick up a book and learn about the real animal kingdom!

Late Assassins Creed Unity Review

Don’t do it. Do not do this to yourself. Don’t waste your time on this absolute piece of shit, no longer having any relevance in the overall AC universe since they killed Desmond off. It’s nothing but 80 hours of collectables and a story that makes you want to blow your brains out.
