  • News Lara Croft's in a Pickle in Shadow of the Tomb Raider's First 15 Minutes

    Crash landed

    Just like Rise of the Tomb Raider, the forthcoming Shadow of the Tomb Raider starts with a flashback, as Lara Croft and her forever friend-zoned accomplice Jonah crash-land into a Mayan temple. The game then gets underway proper, with all of the pickaxe platforming that you’d expect from the franchise in 2018. We must admit, this is...

    Review Overcooked 2

    New and improved recipe

    With Overcooked, Ghost Town Games landed upon a delicious recipe for co-operative cooking chaos that dished up a perfect helping of frantic fun. Although fairly short and straightforward in structure, the fiendishly designed levels meant players really did have to communicate effectively to succeed, and it's this that makes...

    Baffling in the best way

    Okay, we’ve got to talk about Madden NFL’s Longshot mode, because I feel like this is flying under the radar. I quite like FIFA’s rags-to-riches stories, depicting the rise of Clapham’s finest forward Alex Hunter, but I absolutely love Devin Wade and Colt Cruise’s pursuit of NFL stardom. Playing through Homecoming,...
