Digital Sun has crafted a game that from start to finish is fun addictive and beautiful to look at and could very well be one of the best action RPGs of this year so far, this is certainly a game that should not be overlooked. As the owner and proprietor of a small store that sells all manner of things in an almost deserted town, you are tasked to return your shop and town to what it once was, a busy popular town that heroes in search of treasure would visit. Once the day is over and Will our protagonist … Read More »

Developer Codemasters brings a brand new racer from a lost genre back to consoles. ONRUSH intends to bring back carnage and pure fun but is it worth rushing in to? From time to time, a developer tries to reinvent a specific genre and sometimes it pulls off. Sometimes it doesn’t. Thankfully, the former is true for Codemasters. ONRUSH isn’t about winning a race – in fact, there aren’t any standard ‘first-place-awarded-to-the-first-across-the-finish-line’ races in this title. In ONRUSH, the aim of the game is to complete objectives for your team such as driving through checkpoints quickly to increase your team time, … Read More »

Stealth games have a lot of things in common with one another. You must take down enemies silently, remain hidden and stick to the shadows. Aragami takes all of these things and then gives them a slight twist, not only must you stick to the shadows but you can take the shadows with you. Aragami see’s you play as an Aragami spirit who has been summoned by Yamiko, a young girl who has been taken prisoner by the Kaiho, an army of light adepts. The light is your enemy so if these light adepts hit you it is a one … Read More »

Rebellion’s recent incarnation of Battlezone first released as a VR-only title. From there, it gained a large dedicated fan base, then worked its way on to the Xbox One in the form of Battlezone Gold Edition. But how does this transpire from the classic? The story isn’t exactly award winning but it’s simple and gets you into the action nice and fast. You are the last human-manned tank that is tasked to destroy all AI controlled enemies. The game itself is split into two distinct ways of play. Your standard first-person affair of which you choose from one out of three … Read More »

The MotoGP series, while shadowed by other racing simulation series, has always been the pinnacle of motorcycle racing in the gaming world.  Developer Milestone this year has literally flipped the series upside down and conducted a massive overhaul that creates the most realistic simulation experience for motorcycle fans while not creating an unmanageable learning curve for new players.  With an introduction to a new graphics and physics engine, MotoGP ’18 has created a great standard of racing for all who may show interest. Like previous titles, MotoGP ’18 brings back the official rosters from MotoGP, Moto2, Moto3, and Red Bull … Read More »

The developer MakinGames clearly has a love for what they have made and tries to remains faithful to the games that it pays homage to, but does it do the classics any justice? Raging Justice is a side-scrolling street brawler in the style of classic games such as Streets of Rage and Final Fight. There are three characters to choose from. The first being a tough-as-nails cop Rick Justice – his name screams the 90s. There is the badass ex-military Nikki Rage and swift fifteen year old Ashley King. Alone or with a local co-op partner, you are tasked with cleaning the … Read More »

After a successful kickstarter by developer Madmind – (a name somewhat appropriate to the title in question), Agony was greenlit for development, and two years later, it has been born and is in the hands of us here at XBOUK, but does this title fill you with everlasting pleasure or bring you extreme mental suffering? The concept of Agony sounds interesting, to say the least; a tortured soul travelling through hell to find out why you are there. Agony’s version of Hell is simply breath-taking and the first twenty minutes of play time, we were grossed out and disgusted, but … Read More »

There is a relaxing quality to the side-scrolling subaquatic shooter Earth Atlantis as players explore a post-apocalyptic underwater wasteland, hunting tough bosses whilst navigating a labyrinthian world in their trusty submarine. Developed by Pixel Perfex and published by Headup Games, Earth Atlantis is an intriguing spin on a retro gaming style ideal for dipping in and out of, but with not much depth to its gameplay alongside frustrating boss encounters, there’s simply not enough to keep you engaged for long. One of the best aspects of the game is its unique artwork. Designed to resemble nautical maps and illustrations from the … Read More »

Death Road to Canada had an original release date of April, but due to a tragic attack in Toronto, the developer Rocketcat Games respectively held back the release of the game. Now that we have our hands on it we can tell you all about it. This title is a randomly generated road trip action RPG – think The Oregon Trail with zombies and cars. The game has you travel from Florida to Canada, word got around that there is a safe place there. Sounds completely insane but the game itself is a well thought funny little title that deserves … Read More »
