Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain Review

That said, repelling the little blighters can be a hassle when a) they return in greater numbers like a pack of Tusken Raiders and b) I’d rather not take a life (videogames don’t count). Why am I telling you this? Well, it’s because the latest installment of...

Cybarian: The Time Travelling Warrior Review

Cybarian: The Time Travelling Warrior opens with a screen that looks very similar to old arcade cabinet “Winners don’t use drugs” screens, only in this case it says “Winners don’t use saves”. There are no save slots or mid-level checkpoints in Cybarian. Once you exit the level, the game has no memory of your progress....

Project Warlock Review

Project Warlock opens to an image of the protagonist fighting off a horde of monsters while upbeat metal plays. The tone is perfectly conveyed through this scene and it only compounds when you click “New Game” and are immediately dropped into a room with a weapon and a spider biting your heels. Project Warlock is...
