Sony Xperia L3 review – A Tale of Trades

Sony Xperia L3 has a lot to offer once you know of its limits. 3GB of RAM, a 12-nano chipset and a dual-lens camera are all enticing on their own but are offset by a 720p resolution, unspectacular CPU/GPU power and a flimsy feel.

Far Cry New Dawn review – The Apocalypse Has Never Looked...

With Far Cry New Dawn, Ubisoft delivers a new twist to the milked-out concept of the post-apocalyptic adventure. Instead of the clichéd...

Crackdown 3 review – A Potemkin Game in a Potemkin City

Delayed, downgraded and downright forgettable. Crackdown 3 would have been a tired game in 2015; it's a relic in 2019. The PvP game is laughably thin at present but it does show 'what might have been' with the title's long-touted destructible environments.

PlayStation Classic review – Barely Good Enough for NPCs [UPDATED]

Sub-par emulation, a questionable choice of games and a lack of features show how little effort went into recreating a 90s institution

Starlink: Battle for Atlas review – Toys Back to Life

There is no wrong way to make a ship in Starlink: Battle for Atlas. Upside-down or asymmetric wings. Backward firing shotguns. Starlink lets a player loose in the star system Atlas with the most powerful weapon of all: the imagination.

Nokia 3.1 review – Everything But The Power

While there is nothing wrong with giving budget users a premium look and feel über alles, a little more under hood might be preferred sometimes. Nokia 3.1 can need more attention than other budget phones to really get the best from it.

Red Dead Redemption 2 review – Brokehorse Mountain

2,000+ words on the biggest game of the year - there is so much to love in Red Dead Redemption 2 but it's flawed. Some concessions to the 'cinema' of the game hurt its playability and the posse of characters aren't that relatable, likeable or memorable.

Castlevania Requiem review – A Basic Port of Two Classics

Between tone-deafness when it came choice of voice tracks and the poor execution of image enhancement options, it seems like Castlevania Requiem is only too eager to take the path of least resistance and be really cheap to make up for it.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro review – Brilliance with Hiccups [UPDATED]

Huawei's 'other' flagship is a better prospect than P20 Pro - Mate 20 Pro is superior in most areas; beating the previous camera champion, increasing stamina and running Pie 9.0 from day one.

Warriors Orochi 4 review – The Tenth Half-Decent ‘Warriors’ Game. Yay.

A thoroughly decent stab at a sub-genre that has been bled dry. Newcomers will enjoy the magic/combo system for a while before the boredom hits and interest in the story mightn't be enough to pull a player through. The lacklustre environments and copypasta hordes of Putties add to the slog. Long-time fans will find the Magic system enlightening but the heavy recycling of assets will be noted.
