    Review The Raven Remastered

    Leave no stone unturned

    Mystery awaits in THQ Nordic’s latest rework of its 2013 game The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief. The Remastered edition comes bundled with just the right amount of puzzle solving, wit, and charm as its counterpart, with some reworked animations as well as improvements to shading and lighting. It's an often slow-paced...

    Review Rad Rodgers

    Totally rad. Not

    Another week, another Kickstarter game makes the leap from PC to PlayStation 4. This time around it’s Rad Rodgers, a “spiritual successor” to those side scrolling platformers that graced the PC back in the nineties, such as Commander Keen and Jazz Jackrabbit. Nostalgia is definitely the main aim here, and for good or bad it...

    Review Black Mirror

    A Scottish haunting

    Before Charlie Brooker came onto the scene, Black Mirror was more commonly known as a series of point-and-click adventure games released on the PC in the mid-2000s. Its initial three entries were fairly well received, and after a seven year absence, the name is back with a re-imagining of its story, themes, and a mix-up in the...

    Review de Blob

    Poor man's Splatoon?

    Nine years after its appearance on the Wii, de Blob has rolled onto the PlayStation 4. While certainly an unexpected port, it isn’t an unwelcome one. This colourful platformer was a delightfully whimsical adventure nearly a decade ago, with a simple concept that exuded fun and creativity. Pleasingly, this holds true today...

    Review ELEX

    Swing and a miss

    ELEX is an open world role-playing game from a developer with an incredibly spotty track record. No stranger to B-tier titles (with the B sometimes standing for Bin), German studio Piranha Bytes has amassed something of a cult following over the years. ELEX is bound to find an audience, but that audience is bound to be small – and...

    Review Baja: Edge of Control HD

    Offroading like it's '08

    Baja: Edge of Control was a title that released last generation back in 2008. Nine years later, publisher THQ Nordic and developer 2XL Games have decided to remaster this title and dub it “HD” (because, you know, last generation games weren’t HD already). That being said, lets see how this off-road racer fares for the...

    Review This Is the Police

    911 is not a joke

    Weappy Games' strategy-cum-noir adventure This Is the Police has you inhabit the day-to-day drudgery of retiring police chief Jack Boyd, grinding out his last 180 days on the force and trying to keep things running smoothly for the city of Freeburg's corrupt mayor. Dogged by allegations of corruption and a career full of regret, we...

    Review Darksiders: Warmastered Edition

    The art of war

    It's weird to think that since Darksiders was released in 2010, Vigil Games disbanded, THQ went bankrupt, and Nordic Games acquired the franchise. Not only that, but it has even reincorporated under the name THQ Nordic and overseen remasterings of both games. So while ex-Vigil Games employees are scattered around the place with...
