The Nintendo announcements we want at Gamescom – Red Bull

“After all the noise and bombast of E3, it’s easy to forget that Gamescom is actually the biggest Western trade show around these days. With 350,000 visitors in 2016, it makes E3 look small by comparison. So it’ll come as no surprise then, when we tell you we’re excited to see what the big boys…

Surf World Series resurrects a classic game genre – Red Bull

“It’s very clear from the moment that you boot Surf World Series up for the first time just how seriously Climax Studios takes the sport. While it’s not immediately obvious from the team’s development history (they made Rocket Knight and the Assassin’s Creed platformer trilogy) it’s in evidence from well before you start paddling out…

The signings we can’t wait to play as in FIFA 18 – Red Bull

“One of the most exciting periods of time for a football fan is the summer transfer window. While the winter window has become synonymous with last minute panic buys and, recently, not a lot actually happening, the summer window still plays host to massive amounts of money changing hands, wholesale changes in teams, and the…

How Project CARS 2 is evolving the racing sim – Red Bull

“We got a chance to sit down with the chief commercial officer for the studios, Rod Chong. He’s a man who knows his stuff, and it’s time to find out what we can expect from Project CARS 2, what lengths the team have gone to in order to capture the sounds and sights of the…

Cars 3: Driven to Win review – Switch Player

“It shouldn’t be a surprise in 2017 to get a licensed game that’s not irredeemable, but Cars 3: Driven to Win is actually alright. It’s hard to heartily endorse on a console that has Mario Kart 8: Deluxe on it, but if you’re hankering for yet more arcade-racing, this is a decent enough game especially…

Jump Stars review – OPM

“When you’ve got the likes of The Jackbox Party Pack available to you, a party game has to be pretty good to make you part with some hard earned cash. While Jump Stars isn’t “bad”, it’s short on things to keep you coming back and lacks a little polish. It’s not one to avoid at…

The footballers we want in FIFA 18’s The Journey – Red Bull

“FIFA 17’s The Journey showed a lot of promise, offering a new way to play one of the world’s most beloved games. Drilling into every schoolboy dream of going from the rough, dirty park green to the big time, Alex Hunter’s story caught fire in our hearts and minds, and we’re dying to get back into…

Splatoon 2 review – GodisaGeek

“There’s no question about it: Splatoon 2 is better than the first game. But it could have been one of the best games of the year. Ignoring the justified complaints aimed at the first game has cost Splatoon 2 a chance at being one of the best multiplayer experiences available anywhere. At first, you’ll love…

Tokyo 42 review – GamesMaster

“With an exquisite visual design that is impossible to ignore, some games can capture our hearts and minds in a second. Often the key, though, is whether or not there’s anything under the surface. Beauty may only be skin deep, but in SMAC Games’ case, the arresting visuals are hiding something far more exciting underneath:…

The new modes that make PES 2018 sing – Red Bull

“It must be difficult for game developers; challenged every few years with inventing new, exciting reasons for us to go out and spend our hard-earned cash on their product. But somehow they achieve it. We get hyped for the latest game in our favourite long-running franchise, we go out and get it, we play it…
