2Dark is the latest effort from Alone in the Dark creator Frédérick Raynal. Seeing as he's one of the pioneers of the survival horror genre it may be safe to assume that 2Dark is in safe hands. Sadly this isn't the case as 2Dark fails as both a stealth game and a horror experience.
Loot Rascals pits you in a space theme park on a mission to rescue your friend, Big Barry. Contact with Big Barry has been lost and it’s your job to see what the deal is, however, on your way your ship crash lands on the alien planet that has been overtaken by a slew of baddies. To save Big Barry and restore order to the space theme park, you’ll need to travel across the five randomly generated areas and take out the ‘Rascals’ you come across.
Let’s get the awkward bit out of the way first, this game should have been a free pack-in with the Nintendo Switch. Everyone knows it, but don’t let that get in the way of the enjoying it.
With little in the way of huge new releases, Ubisoft's Ghost Recon Wildlands remains in first place for another week.
I have fond memories of the Destruction Derby series for the PS One. I loved nothing more than racing around dirt tracks smashing up other cars, or testing my driving skills in the Destruction Derby arenas. One series I never seemed to catch onto however was FlatOut. But with the release of Flatout 4: Total Insanity I wanted to rekindle that love of DD, but has it lit that burning fire in my heart, or did it burn out quicker than a candle at the end of an exhaust?
Now that the big one-point-oh has finally dropped, can the game overcome this particular hurdle and provide the ultimate LEGO sandbox experience? Let’s take a look.
Steeped in a robotically, fierce and dense fatigued looking world, the environment laid out in front of you is nothing short of a hellacious, ruined and tired looking retirement home for old androids. A struggle between the next generation of robots and those seemingly cute, charming robots that came before litter the landscape in a vast, complex open world that somehow mirrors the perception of being large, but in reality it’s refined and compact marriage between the game’s direction and the player.
The world of Danganronpa is a very strange one indeed. World ending events, high school relationships and homicidal bears all combine to make an experience which is equal parts unique and endearing. Danganronpa 1.2 Reload brings two games, which were easy to overlook when they were originally released, into the spotlight, allowing more players to fall in love with a franchise which has already taken the world by storm.
It's no secret that Ghost Recon Wildland's portrayal of Bolivia is one seeped in controversy, but it's also one that makes the scenic South American country more intriguing, more dangerous, and more suited to an action-oriented video game. However, as the game is Ubisoft's biggest yet, is it really worth being crowned the fastest selling game of 2017 so far?
Back in 2014, Cyanide Studios reinvigorated the stealth genre with the release of Styx: Master of Shadows. It wasn't perfect, but it definitely had its merits and gave fans of the classic "hard-as-balls" stealth genre hope for the future. Now, three years later comes Styx: Shards of Darkness, a standalone sequel to Master of Shadows that turns the difficulty up to eleven.
There has been a bit of a thing within the indie scene as of late for uber-hard retro-stylised games. Most tend to be roguelikes, 2D...
Having been on the market for almost 6 months now, virtual reality headsets are really starting to find their place in the market. It is becoming abundantly clear that there are certain genres which just seem to work better than others when implemented with VR.
Who knew a text adventure brought out in 2017 could be so engaging! I was prepared for the worst. I'd made a run for the local supermarket before booting up Stories Untold and had filled the cupboard with feel good food. I figured if I became frustrated, I could calm myself with a velvet cupcake or a cool can of lager.
The republic versus monarchy debate has long been a divisive and hotly-debated issue in the UK, and no doubt will rage on for many...
