Transport Fever 2 PC review

Swiss developer Urban Games latest transport management simulator, Transport Fever 2 enters a niche marketplace already full of complex city and transport management games. Does this sequel to the 2016 Transport Fever have what it takes to lift its head above the crowd?

Unless you are EA’s ill-fated 2013 Sim City reboot, city and transport management games are a complex affair and, in order properly to engage their audience, they need to be. Transport Fever 2 is no exception. Continue reading Transport Fever 2 PC review

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends Nintendo Switch review

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends is a four-player update, for the Nintendo Switch, of the classic Taito arcade platformer. Harking back to a simper time, before eye-bleeding 3D graphics and visceral explosions became the gaming norm, Bubble Bobble, the precursor to Taito’s later classics like Rainbow Islands and New Zealand Story, had a charm that left an impression on everyone that played it. Continue reading Bubble Bobble 4 Friends Nintendo Switch review

Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts PC review

With Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts CI Games have  taken a leaf out of Hitman’s playbook abandoning the open-world of the last game in favour of a series of well-realised environments.

As fun as past Sniper: Ghost Warrior games are, finely polished works, they are not. Fortunately, CI have pulled out the stops with Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts to give us a game that can stand head-and-shoulders with similar contemporary first-person-shooters. Continue reading Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts PC review

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order PC/Xbox One review

EA Games has a lot riding on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Their use of what is a premium movie licence has not exactly produced stellar results. Whilst Star Wars: Battlefront 2 was a vast improvement on the first game, it still had its issues.

For Fallen Order, EA have conscripted Respawn Entertainment (Apex Legends/Titanfall) to produce a single-player focused Star Wars game. No strangers to narrative video-games, Respawn, being made up from veterans from the Call of Duty series, are an inspired choice to create this new chapter in the (canon) Star Wars mythos.

The force is strong with the Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Xbox One 2TB Game Drive

Just in time for the new Star Wars Game from EA, Seagate have released their Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Xbox One Game Drive.

The cynic in me believes that no storage solution says, “I’m probably paying too much for this” than a Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Xbox One Game Drive. And that’s probably true. If you are a Star Wars fan, however, Seagate’s Jedi Fallen Order Game Drive is the extra storage that you’ve been looking for.
