Review: Mass Effect

Hello all. Hope things for you are as good as they can be at the moment. I think the background to this one is covered enough in the review and the accompanying piece (and possibly here, too) to negate the need for any preamble, so let’s get straight into it. Here’s a review of Mass […]

Review: Need for Speed: SHIFT

Hi everyone. Hope 2021 is treating you well. I can’t complain too much, but I’m finding it quite hard work so far. Having said that, January’s always a bit difficult, isn’t it? Even if things are normal. Which they’re not. Anyway, the rusty old reviewing machine (as I’ve taken to calling myself) cranks back into […]

Review: Sensible Soccer 2006

Hi there. I hope you managed to have a good Christmas, under whatever strange and/or difficult circumstances were imposed on you this year. Sneaking in with one last review for the year, we take a look at the mid-00s attempt to revive a much-loved football franchise: Sensible Soccer 2006. (Yes, it seems the pull of […]

Review: Space Quest IV: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers

Hi everyone. Today we’re adding to our list of Sierra adventure reviews, with a look at Space Quest IV: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers. This will most likely be my last post before Christmas. I imagine that, due to covid restrictions, some of you won’t be able to celebrate in the way you had […]

Review: Iron Assault

Hello there. Looking at the last few review posts, I’ve obviously given up on trying to find another way to say “I hope you’re doing ok” – so, I hope you’re doing ok. Today we make a rare visit to the Simulation section of the site for some big robot action, in Iron Assault.

Review: Kathy Rain

Hi there. Hope you’re all doing ok. Today we welcome back Jo to solo reviewing duties after a break of, ooh, let’s just say, quite a few years. It’s kind of fitting that the game in question is a point and click adventure set in the the 90s: Kathy Rain.

Review: Alan Wake

Hi there. Hope you’re doing ok. Today we establish that the answer to the question, “How far in advance would you have to start playing a vaguely spooky game in order to produce a review of that game to coincide with Halloween?” is “about six months”. (Alternatively, the timing could be considered more of a […]

Review: Jill of the Jungle

Hello everyone, hope you are well. Today I have another review for you! I’m sure it will be the highlight of your day. Or maybe just something mildly interesting to read during a tea break. Or maybe you’ll think I’m talking nonsense. Anyway, here’s our review of Jill of the Jungle.

Review: NBA Live 95

Hi there. Some time ago, The Last Dance on Netflix inspired me to play a couple of old basketball games. Here’s a write-up of the second: NBA Live 95 from EA. (I’ve since moved onto Friday Night Lights and Last Chance U, so I imagine I’ll end up writing about Front Page Sports Football while […]

Review: The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition

Hello there. Hope you’re doing ok. I’ve generously been given the title of this site’s main “review guy” based upon a blistering work rate that produces anywhere from 10-15 reviews per calendar year. With such a reputation to maintain, I have another one for you today! It’s of a relatively modern remake of an all-time […]
