The Walking Dead: Onslaught Review

Stepping into the shoes of fan favorite Walking Dead characters like Daryl Dixon, Rick Grimes, Michonne Hawthorne, and Carol Peletier through the magic of VR certainly has its moments. The Walking Dead: Onslaught doesn’t offer nearly as nuanced an ex...

Paradise Killer Review

Disclaimer: Former IGN host Alysia Judge worked on Paradise Killer, providing the voice of Judge. Detective stories are almost always centred around the search for proof: that key bit of evidence, that slip-up in testimony, that missing cornerstone w...

Inertial Drift Review

Screaming sideways through the long, arcing bends of Snow Mountain Sprint, my front tires flirted incessantly with the densely packed snow at the side of the road, but such is the precision of the controls that they never so much as kissed. My first...

Serious Sam 4 Review

Nostalgia is a hell of a drug. And like all drugs, it can be dangerous to become reliant on it. Serious Sam, I think you have a problem and need an intervention. Sure, 2011’s Serious Sam 3 felt like a goofy throwback to a simpler time, but in 2020 Se...

Mafia: Definitive Edition Review

The first Mafia game was one of the early pioneers of cinematic, open-world action, and an earnest Czech-made homage to Prohibition-era American crime fiction. Back then, the criminals were Italian, the cops were Irish, and the hooch was Canadian. Ma...

WWE 2K Battlegrounds Review

It’s been a rough couple of years for the WWE 2K series, with the switch port of WWE 2K18 being a nearly unplayable mess and the buggy disaster (on all platforms) that was WWE 2K20, which has led to the mainline series taking a much needed year off....

eFootball PES 2021 Season Update Review

Season update. Two words that succinctly sum up football fans’ years of frustration with both PES and FIFA, and describe what might ironically be the most meaningful innovation in football games for years - or at least lead to it. But is this year's...

Spellbreak Review

Standing out from the pack is harder than ever in an ever-more crowded battle royale genre. The kings of this particular hill are already free-to-play on a variety of platforms with years of updates and refinements under their belts, but the team at...

WRC 9 Review

In comparison to last year’s big jump in quality with WRC 8, WRC 9 is a more modest lurch forwards. Several great new rallies have been added and it does feel like there’s been a bit of massaging under the hood – with a better sense of car mass and w...

Hades Review

In the ancient Greek myth of Sisyphus, a poor soul is doomed to forever push a boulder uphill without rest. Each time he’d push it up, it would roll back down again and he’d have to start anew. But what if that Herculean climb uphill was actually awe...

Oculus Quest 2 Review

Last year’s Oculus Quest blew us away with its wire-free, put-it-on-and-play VR. And as if 2020 isn’t a big enough year for video games (what with new consoles on the horizon), Facebook is releasing a brand new Oculus Quest 2 on October 13th, with al...

Super Mario 3D All-Stars Analysis

Let’s get one thing straight, right off the bat: Super Mario 3D All-Stars is a collection of ports containing Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy for the Switch but they are not remasters. The only changes are that each game...

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Review

Vanillaware, the Osaka-based game developer known for its 2D art style, has previously worked mostly on side-scrolling hack-and-slash RPGs. So I imagine a lot of fans will be surprised when they start up 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim and discover it’s a 2D...

Hotshot Racing Review

Remember when making an “edgy” game didn’t mean adding Godsmack to the soundtrack of your swashbuckling 9th century Persian fantasy, or painting Sonic the Hedgehog black and giving him a gun? Hotshot Racing remembers. In this endearingly vibrant and...
