Ride 3 Review

Ride is a racing franchise that has tried to bring some grace and class to the long neglected motorbike racing genre. Just like with the real thing your first forays into Ride 3 can be a little intimidating and unnerving. The first race that you must compete in is one designed to apparently test what skill level you are at. This race takes place on quite a powerful; bike and it was here that we learned some of the major differences between racing a bike and a car. Mainly the fact that you can’t fall of a car but you … Read More »

Storm Boy The Game: Xbox Review

It’s difficult calling this a game but not in any way bad, it was a very fun experience, and that’s exactly what this is an experience. Based entirely on the 1964 children’s book of the same name.

Call Of Cthulhu Review

The H. P. Lovecraft stories are based a lot on atmosphere, the horror is found in the not knowing, the not seeing. The environments that the writer created were oppressive and dark. Cynaide Studio has tried to replicate this atmosphere in it’s new Call of Cthulhu game, and in someways it really managed to hit the mark. But in others ways though, this is another game based on the books that makes us feel like sometimes, things are better just written down. Call of Cthulhu is a dark game, both in it’s visual appearance and it’s tone. This is a … Read More »

Assassin’s Creedy Odyssey: Review

From the moment you zoom out of the map screen of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to reveal just how vast its gameworld is, littered with numerous islands of differing sizes throughout the ocean, it becomes clear just how big of an adventure you’re in for. This adventure is so big in fact that after playing through only the first 20 hours or so, it feels like we’ve only just scratched the surface of what this epic odyssey has to offer – and we’ve loved every second of it. After an initial story beat that kicks things off in style, the first … Read More »

Fishing Sim World – Xbox Review

Fishing Sim World is the most realistic fishing sim game to date and this is also its downfall. Just as a disclaimer we here at “Xboxoneuk” are not avid fishing lovers, We made sure that this did not affect the review itself. When a fishing game is released as a full title we always wonder if it can hold its own and not feel like half a game. Like us and most people that play games fishing is usually a side option, you fish for food or money and it’s as basic as casting your line and bait into the … Read More »

8-Bit Armies – Xbox Review

Nostalgia, nostalgia, nostalgia with some nostalgia sprinkled on top for good measure. From the tutorial mission, there was something familiar in the back of our minds something wonderfully warm and fuzzy. We were kids again playing Command and Conquer on our Windows XP Computer, and even though it looks nothing like C&C many of the devs and executives that worked on the original C&C are here so you could say it is a spiritual successor. 8-Bit Armies If you haven’t already guessed is a real-time strategy. The name gives you a clue as to what the game looks and feels like. … Read More »

Destiny 2: Forsaken Review

We all knew Bungie had a lot of making up to do with Destiny 2 to players who were underwhelmed by the experience they encountered in the first year.  Through repetitive missions and lack of emotion inducing story, over time it somewhat fell flat and I for one am a huge Destiny supporter.  With the latest Forsaken DLC now out, new life has been breathed into Destiny 2 but is it enough to really want to bring guardians back? Forsaken is based around a prison break in the Prison of Elders, a familiar destination to those who played the first … Read More »

Bad North – Xbox Review

Bad North starts on your “Home” island and you have two to three houses to defend from waves of Vikings coming to pillage your land. This is essentially the premise of the entire game but with different size islands and increasingly difficult waves of enemy’s invading the shores. The enemy will slowly approach from the fog and you and your two default commanders are tasked at stopping them by any means. When all the enemies have been slain the houses that remain standing will gift you a random amount of coins for you to upgrade your Commanders combat units. Upgrading … Read More »
