Night Trap review – yes, it’s still worth playing

Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition – Overview Oh man, Night Trap. I remember playing this back in 1992 on my Sega CD, which, considering my age at the time, probably wasn’t the best idea. I also remember many other FMV games of the time: Who Shot Johnny Rock, Mad Dog McCree, Crime Patrol, Double Switch, Sewer …

‘Narcosis’ – Swimming with the fishies

Narcosis – Overview Narcosis manages to do what lots of games can’t, and that is make underwater segments fun. Many games, when they throw you underwater, it just isn’t fun. Most notably, for me, World of Warcraft. Vashj’ir was a terrible, terrible zone, the worst one in the game. But I digress. Walking around the disturbing, …

Bulletstorm review – drown in a hail of bullets

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition – Overview I originally played Bulletstorm when it came out on the PlayStation 3 a few years ago. I enjoyed what I played of it, but I quit when I got to the part where the Burnouts appear. It just became a tiring, monotonous corridor shooter, after what was a fun first part. …

Mr Shifty review – action that goes downhill

Overview Hm, where to start with Mr Shifty. It’s a stylistic, top-down action game that has you teleporting and punching (and occasionally whacking with objects) through 18 levels filled with enemies.

‘The Norwood Suite’ review – surreal adventure that’ll leave you wanting more

Read ‘The Norwood Suite’ review on Steam Overview The Norwood Suite is a hard game to describe. It’s weird, strange, interesting, odd, confusing, quirky. It’s also damned fun. A rather short experience at just over 2.5 hours (longer if it takes you more time to figure out some of the puzzles), but in that 150 minute …
