A win for nostalgia

Advantages: A solid, interesting and playable RPG
Disadvantages: Translation is appalling

I’m back to classic game reviews…you’d have thought that with so many new games on the market there’d be more than enough content in those to keep me occupied, but no. Clearly I find it completely necessary to come back to all of my old favourites on a re ...

Tweety and the Magic Gems

Advantages: Decent gameplay, not too expensive, good graphics, features the Looney Tunes

Sometimes the Old 'Uns are the Best 'Uns

Advantages: Mindless addictive fun that will keep you occupied for hours and one heck of trip down memory lane
