Gal*Gun: Double Peace (PS4)

Gal*Gun: Double Peace (PS4)

Between a rod and a hard place

The last time we strutted through a school targeting ladies with our love shots, Interpol got involved. In fact, we're not sure whether penning this review is a violation of our parole conditions – we try not to let legal proceedings get in the way of our quest to bring you the best PlayStation coverage available,...

Dex (PS4)

Dex (PS4)

Cyberpunk'd

Dex is an open world, side scrolling, action RPG that takes place in a far future Cyberpunk setting, and appears to have taken some inspiration from classic Metroid and Castlevania games. This combination seems like a gamer's dream come true, however developer Dreadlocks seem to have neglected including enjoyable gameplay, instead...

Adr1ft (PS4)

Adr1ft (PS4)

Space oddity

In this reviewer's opinion, space disaster is one of the most interesting concepts in entertainment. You have the likes of Gravity, Apollo 18, and The Martian in film, Seveneves in literature, and Alien Isolation in games. Adr1ft, the debut game from developer Three One Zero, now joins the party following its PlayStation 4 release...

I Am Setsuna (PS4)

I Am Setsuna (PS4)

Snow and steady

There's a real demand for more traditional Japanese role-playing games these days - experiences that call back to a time when turn based battles ruled and world maps were explored via airship. I Am Setsuna attempts to recapture that magic of the classic RPG, channelling the spirit of older Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest titles. It's a...

Song of the Deep (PS4)

Song of the Deep (PS4)

Water wonderful world

Insomniac Games has certainly been keeping itself busy lately. The studio has been launching game after game over the last couple of years, all of them of the quality you'd expect, and it seems it's prepared to tackle almost anything – big or small. Nestled in-between its successful re-imagining of the first Ratchet &...

Ghostbusters (PS4)

Ghostbusters (PS4)

Give up the ghost

The hubbub surrounding the new Ghostbusters movie has been so well documented that even the Internet-deprived people of North Korea have likely heard about it. The response to the first trailer for the 2016 reboot of the supernatural comedy franchise has been nothing short of vitriolic, to the point that it's one of the most hated...

Call of Duty: Black Ops III - Descent (PS4)

Call of Duty: Black Ops III - Descent (PS4)

Decent

With the summer gaming drought beginning and an onslaught of new shooters coming out later this year, now is the perfect time for a good Call of Duty: Black Ops III DLC – for those who aren't sick of it yet, of course. Descent offers the usual four multiplayer maps and single Zombies level, and in spite of the familiarity, is the best DLC...

Assault Suit Leynos (PS4)

Assault Suit Leynos (PS4)

Heavy metal

Originally released all the way back in 1990 on the SEGA Genesis, Assault Suit Leynos – or Target Earth as it was known in North America – is a 2D side-scrolling mecha shoot-'em-up that still holds up well today. Remade for the PlayStation 4, this new version comes with high definition visuals, a remixed soundtrack, and some slight...

Grand Kingdom (PS4)

Grand Kingdom (PS4)

A heavenly kingdom?

Grand Kingdom is a good looking turn-based battle-'em-up that sees you getting to pick and command a group of mercenaries in order to fight for the future of the fantasy world of Resonail. Striving for power are several kingdoms augmented with not-at-all generic fantasy names: Landerth, Fiel, Valkyr, and Magion. Of course, only...

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven (PS4)

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven (PS4)

Stuck in purgatory

We can guarantee that almost every review of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven that you read will, at least once, mention that it's a better experience if you're a fan of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure - a statement that seems bafflingly obvious. As the property's name suggests, the popular anime and manga series revels in the...

Lost Sea (PS4)

Lost Sea (PS4)

Not seaworthy

Lost Sea is a top down indie roguelike with a unique visual style and retro sensibilities. Clearly, there is a danger for it to get lost in a sea of superior competitors. We'll be the first to admit that that joke was pretty obvious. But just because a joke is obvious, doesn't mean it isn't true. The title sees you playing as an...

The Banner Saga 2 (PS4)

The Banner Saga 2 (PS4)

Stop! Banner time

Few games are as relentlessly bleak as The Banner Saga 2. It begins right after the climax of the previous game, but regardless of your prior choices, the story will play out largely the same; the dredge (a relentless horde of warriors) are hunting down the remaining humans and varl (hulking, horned giants), in the wake of past...

Energy Hook (PS4)

Energy Hook (PS4)

Swing when you’re winning

It's been 12 long years since Activision dangled Spider-Man 2 in front of our eyes, and we lapped it up like the Kingpin at an all you can eat buffet. Treyarch's memorable open world outing is widely considered as the web-slinger's finest hour on a games console, and Insomniac will have its work cut out if it hopes to...

Full Mojo Rampage (PS4)

Full Mojo Rampage (PS4)

Get a Loa this

Roguelikes are ten a penny these days. You've probably played at least one; Spelunky, The Binding of Isaac, Rogue Legacy, and Enter the Gungeon are just the tip of the iceberg. It also happens that they're all excellent, each putting its own spin on the permadeath, randomly generated crunchiness that the genre is known for. Full Mojo...

7 Days to Die (PS4)

7 Days to Die (PS4)

Kill me

The premise behind 7 Days to Die is strong: it's an open-world zombie survival horror game smashed together with the crafting and building elements of Minecraft. That description sounds compelling, but the final product doesn't come anywhere near to being fun. Before you jump into the actual game, you are given a plethora of options to...

Professional Farmer 2017 (PS4)

Professional Farmer 2017 (PS4)

Cull the crops

It's never nice comparing a game to an infinitely superior peer – especially when that title scored an uninspiring 6/10 on this very site. Professional Farmer 2017 is so mind-bogglingly bad, though, that it makes Farming Simulator 15 look like Game of the Year in comparison. This is a cynical cash-grab trying to capitalise on the...

Asemblance (PS4)

Asemblance (PS4)

Why aren’t you helping?

A cacophony greets your ears upon starting up Asemblance. Alarms blare somewhere in the distance as a synthetic voice asks you why you aren't helping, how you feel, and what you remember. The problem is, we don't remember anything. How could we? We just started. Nilo Studios' debut makes a rather striking first impression...

Resident Evil 5 (PS4)

Resident Evil 5 (PS4)

Simply Redfield

Don't let anyone tell you that Resident Evil 5's a rotter – it's only partially decomposed. Seven years removed from its original release, Capcom's controversial African adventure remains somewhat entertaining – even if old problems die hard. This schizophrenic outback outing has a bit of an identity crisis, but its biggest issue...
