I don’t buy much DLC, so when I say that this is the best DLC I’ve ever bought the statement might not carry much weight for people that buy them regularly. That being said, the quality of this add-on for PS3’s greatest game is absolutely superb. The content is fairly short for this price: I managed to finish it in one sitting of around two and a half hours. But this is all that costs the DLC a perfect ten out of ten score. Once you can get past the cost, it’s a breathtakingly wonderful couple More >
Trace Vector is described as a high speed action arcade game with puzzle elements. It also has vector style graphics, and is very easy to learn but difficult to master. The music has been described as electronica and certainly adds to the 80’s arcade feel of the game overall.
The object of the game is to race your ship through each geometric level grabbing all the fuel cells you can and dodging dead ends along the way. The controls feature just two buttons to determine the path your ship will More >
Heroes and Legends: Conquerors of Kolhar by Cuve games is by no means an exciting reimagining of the fantasy roleplaying genre, it is, however, a fairly enjoyable, if at times tedious, strategy/action game that will easily fill up an afternoon but, for an asking price of £6.99, this is not an exceptionally good value proposition.
In Heroes and Legend: Conquerors of Kolhar you will spend the vast majority of your time in pitched three on three battles that take place in real time making tougher More >
King’s Bounty: Dark Side is the latest entry in the seemingly endless King’s Bounty series of turn-based RPG/strategy games. In theory, it shakes up the formula by, for the first time, letting you play as the bad guys. In practice, it feels like a lazy retread of the same game developer 1C-SoftClub have been milking for over half a decade.
Dark Side sees you playing either an Orc warrior, a seductive Demoness or a Vampire wizard, on a quest to restore the balance between Light and Dark. The More >
Enemy Mind breathes new life into the shoot-em-up genre with a clever twist to the formula. In the midst of an intergalactic war between humans and squid-like aliens, you play a formless psychic entity capable of taking over ships from either side. In battle, you jump constantly between enemies, adapting quickly to the distinct weaponry and abilities of each vessel and then abandoning them as their health and ammo run out.
Gameplay is at once frantic and strategic – staying with any one ship More >
Note: Since the original publication of this review, the developer has patched the physics for the Xbox version of the game. The content and score of this review have been updated to reflect that change.
Haruneko’s latest 2D platformer shows promise but ultimately fails to deliver a fun, playable game. You play Sarah, charged with rescuing her father from the demonic Lilith. You trek through five pixel-art castles, defeat Lilith’s minions and fight some honestly bizarre bosses (Legs in More >
The Room Two is a beautifully crafted 3D game with a relatively simple premise: solve the puzzles to escape the room. The story continues on from its predecessor (aptly named The Room), where you are tracking down the discoverer of the “Null” element. However, The Room Two is considerably larger than the original: the puzzles are trickier and require more parts; you can move between sections of a room and each level is in a different location, with an ancient temple, a ship’s cabin and an More >
Five Nights at Freddy’s is an indie survival horror game that puts you in the role of the recently hired night-shift security guard of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. The main feature of the restaurant is a band of robot mascots entertaining the children during daytime. At night they switch into free-roam mode which makes them behave quite differently…
You have to survive five nights (12 AM – 6 AM) while these animatronic monsters are coming for you (two “bonus levels” can be also unlocked). You won’t More >
