Test Drive 4

by .

Test Drive 4 – What I believe to be one of the cheapest race games I’ve ever played. It is not cheap because it’s bad as I still have had a lot of fun with it. All the elements are fundamentally good; a brilliant line up of fast cars, good looking graphics for a PlayStation… Read more »

Released in 1985, Paradroid puts the player in control of… Read more »

In the entertainment industry, critical acclaim and commercial success rarely go hand in hand.  Whilst this is arguably less true in the games industry, it nevertheless remains the case that an original title, no matter how good it is, will frequently be overlooked in favour of a recognised IP with a number after its title. … Read more »
