Pro Rugby Manager 2015 Review

Cyanide return to the rugby management genre after a decade away with a new title in the Pro Rugby Manager series, Pro Rugby Manager 2015. As a keen rugby fan I was delighted to hear that the series was being brought back with Pro Rugby Manager 2015. For the past week I’ve been playing around … Read morePro Rugby Manager 2015 Review

The Sims 4 Review

The Sims 4 is not a bad game. Really, it’s not. There are lots of words and phrases you can use to accurately describe it – “disappointing”, “cut-down”, “over-familiar” – but it’s not bad. If this was the first in the The Sims franchise, we’d likely be lauding it as a clever, unique, genre-bending game … Read moreThe Sims 4 Review

Dead Rising 3 PC Review

It kinda makes me laugh that, in the years since we rediscovered our love of brutally difficult games that require you to replay bits over and over again to proceed (Dark Souls, I’m looking at you), the Dead Rising series has become significantly easier and more accessible. The first Dead Rising was an Xbox 360 … Read moreDead Rising 3 PC Review

Hatoful Boyfriend Review

Over the past few days I’ve been playing an interactive novel of school-day politics, conspiratorial tension, espionage, murder and overly cautious scooter-based road safety. Characters from flouncing aristocrats to lonesome bookworms have captured my affections, just as I tried to capture theirs. Oh, and everybody in the story is a bird. Pigeons, mostly. Everybody except … Read moreHatoful Boyfriend Review

Kick-Ass 2 Review / Playthrough

I really don’t know where to begin with this. I have played Kick-Ass 2 for about seven hours. I’ve finished it. I’ve replayed one level solely to record it, and I’ve replayed other bits to record them. I’m still lost for words. (Post-insanity note: After writing this, I lost all of my save games, possibly … Read moreKick-Ass 2 Review / Playthrough

Pure Pool Review

Unless you play professionally, a lot of what constitutes a good game of pool relies on circumstance and atmosphere. When I still lived in a small town in the North of England (the kind of place with a bar or pub for every other shop in the high street,) my pool joint was the upstairs … Read morePure Pool Review

The Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 4 – Amid the Ruins Review

After finishing a play-through of Telltale’s penultimate episode in The Walking Dead Season Two, I went back over my reviews of the other three episodes to see what my reactions, reservations and predictions were for the directions of this Clementine-centric series. Reviewing episodic games is never all that easy, because as a player you’re deliberately … Read moreThe Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 4 – Amid the Ruins Review

Gods Will Be Watching Review

Hey, everyone! It’s Invent A New Genre time! I have hereby decided that Gods Will Be Watching is an opaque, point-and-click, resource-management, crisis-management, ethical adventure. Or an OPACResMaCrisMEA for short. It’ll catch on, I’m sure. It’s also a game I haven’t actually finished, which goes against IncGamers review policy and probably means Paul is going … Read moreGods Will Be Watching Review

Unrest Review

In a week where recriminations have been flying about a couple of high-profile Kickstarter failures, it’s refreshing to be able to write about a project that demonstrates a more positive side of crowd-funding. Unrest is an unusual RPG set in an alternative fantasy version of ancient India (you can tell by the race of talking … Read moreUnrest Review

Abyss Odyssey Review

ACE Team can always be relied upon for intriguing visual design and ideas. The Zeno Clash titles are awash with surreal creatures and unique mythology, while Rock of Ages drew on the history of world art and Terry Gilliam’s animated work for Monty Python. In the former, your goal is to brawl your way across … Read moreAbyss Odyssey Review

Quest for Infamy Review

It’s a hell of a coincidence that, a few short days after a discussion in the comments about how older games with unique concepts should be revisited, I’m reviewing a game that does exactly that. And I’m not ignorant of the irony that I’m not the biggest fan of the result, either – but with … Read moreQuest for Infamy Review
