Capcom vs. SNK 2 (PS2) Review

CvsSNK2

While I was looking across the review sections of this blog that have “Coming Soon!” in them, I was surprised to see I haven’t reviewed a PS2 title yet. I guess that comes from most of the big PS2 games I own being parts of series I want to cover from the first entry onwards… ANYWAY, I thought I’d stick a review of probably my favourite fighting game of all time up and fix that black space with ease. Capcom vs. SNK 2 is frankly brilliant, its mechanics, looks, menu presentation, roster, modes… just everything. Perfection. Let’s take a look!

WCW vs. The World (PS1) Review

WCW vs The World

Here we are, the next entry of the Wrestling Game Rundown and it’s the game I mentioned in the previous entry as a game I was looking forward to, but a long delay led to much anger and impatience. Was it worth the wait, and what’s it like now? Let’s find out in what is the first of the later Godly AKI games, even if it’s very barebones, comparatively…

Jump Force (PS4) Review

JUMP FORCE

I wanted this to be good so much… *sigh*. So, here we have Jump Force, the latest crossover game featuring characters from Weekly Shonen Jump!, the most popular manga comic in Japan, and publishers of such classics as Dragon Ball, One Piece, Bleach, Death Note and many… many more. With such an endless wealth of things to use and play with, how does a company fail to deliver? Well, let’s find out, shall we!

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon (GBA) Review

Castlevania Circle of the Moon

One of my goals for this blog this year is to get rid of the “Coming Soon!” bits in the tab pages above, and to get that goal started, let’s add a Game Boy Advance game to the back catalogue! Thanks to the hype surrounding Castlevania being added to Smash Ultimate, I was in the mood for a Castlevania game beyond playing Super IV for the Smash rundown, so I decided to start with the first of the GBA games, killing two birds with one stone, plus leaving me open to play the others ones down the line… Let’s have a look then!

Resident Evil 2 Remake (PS4) Review

Resi 2 Remake

Seems strange to cover a remake of a game I’ve already covered on this blog, given it’s only been running for a few years (and games weren’t being reviewed for a good chunk of that), but here we are! The Resident Evil 2 Remake managed to not only be a great game in and of itself, but a game that lives up to the lofty legacy of the original Resident Evil Reamke, which still stands as one of the best entries in the series. While I still have one or two gripes, let’s take a deeper look at one of the best Resi games in a long time…

Power Move Pro Wrestling (PS1) Review

Power Move Pro Wrestling

The first entry into the Wrestling Game Rundown since the old game review blog got transferred over to this one, and it also happens to be the first 3D wrestling game on the list, and indeed the first 3D wrestling game I ever played. We’re also back into made up wrestlers / promotions side of things, though only briefly! (well, for the entire roster, anyway…) So let’s have a look at this old PS1 game, see if it’s a hidden gem, or a blocky mess… or both!

SoulCalibur VI (PS4) Review

soul calibur vi

SoulCalibur VI was looking like an unlikely prospect a few years ago, after SCV was, frankly, a rather expensive mistake that pretty much killed the franchise dead. I always assumed if we got a new game it would be a reboot instead of SoulCalibur VI, but it turns out… we got a sort-of reboot that’s still called SoulCalibur VI…? Let’s take a look!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Switch) Review

ssb ultimate

It only feels like yesterday the mammoth marathon counting down the days to this game’s release started on this blog, but now it’s been over a month since its release and it’s time to review the game itself! Ultimate is certainly a fitting subtitle as not only does it have every previous character playable (plus new ones!) but it has a mode where you can collect “spirits”, and each of these 1,000+ spirits are based on other characters and concepts from games from all over gaming history. It’s just one giant celebration of gaming, and thankfully it’s damn fun to play as well! Let’s have a closer look then…

My Top 10 Games of 2018

Top 10 Games 2018

It’s that time of year again, and now all three categories are on the one Blog! So, we’re starting with Games, and… yeah, once again I’m just one man (with a full-time job, no less) so there are games on most people’s lists that I just haven’t played (God of War seems to be this year’s Breath of the Wild in that sense…), and thanks to two 2017 games taking a couple of chunks of the year up, I only just made it to 10 games released in 2018… So, without further ado, here is my list of Top 10 / Only 10 Games I’ve Played of 2018!

Red Dead Redemption II (PS4) Review

Red Dead Redemption 2

It’s the first game review since I combined my regular blog with the Game Review one, and it’s a hell of a first game to start with! Red Dead Redemption II continues Rockstar’s streak of great open world games, once again mixing good gameplay with an amazing story. So let’s take a deeper look into the sequel (that’s actually a prequel…)
