A classic bargain. Remember the PlayStation Classic? We rather liked it, to be honest, but enthusiasm for the miniature retro machine quickly dwindled thanks to a divisive selection of software and some ropey emulation. Consequently, the plug and play console’s price has been gradually on the decline for months, and this latest UK deal from Argos might be the biggest bargain so far. At just £29.99, we’ve yet to see…

Team Sonic Racing review – a smart spin on the character kart formula

Team Sonic Racing review – a smart spin on the character kart formula Here’s hyperbole for you.

Now, a sturdy challenge can be a good thing in a team-based title like this — it can provide veteran players with a great opportunity to really strut their stuff — but the general consensus seems to be that this mission is just far too hard for its own good. At least, on consoles.…

Rage 2 review – sparkling combat is let down by a hollow open world

Rage 2 review – sparkling combat is let down by a hollow open world For all its promise of anarchic mayhem and its striking punk palette, Rage 2 is a surprisingly vanilla experience. Though on paper it delivers a lot of the contemporary triple-A features we’ve come to expect – meaty combat, open-world exploration, sassy (if occasionally grossly stereotypical) NPCs that offer secrets and side missions, unlockable fast travel, and…
