It's available for Playstation 4, Xbox One, Steam and Windows 10. You'll also be able to pick up the tables individually if you are after them on mobile devices.<br /> Solo is the first table up, and it follows the plot of the (actually quite decent, don't listen to the haters) film, so you can expect exciting heists, chases and your first meeting with your hairy chum, Chewbacca. It's a pretty fast table and a lot of fun to play, though strangely it has the worst music of the three new tables.&nbsp;<br /> Calrissian Chronicles is a brilliant table, following a wide array of Lando's appearances across the whole of the Star Wars multi media empire (no pun intended), so you can find modes based upon his animated Star Wars: Rebels cameo appearance and ...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12964">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12964#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewThu, 13 Sep 2018 13:38:21 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12964#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12964evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net F1 2018 Reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12963<h4>Get Your Motor Running</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12963"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/f12018r1.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="F1 2018 Review"></a>Review by Rich Boulton.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Codemasters&rsquo; F1 series has been enjoying a steady rise in quality over the past few years, culminating in 2017&rsquo;s very complete package. It offered a strong and engaging career mode, some classic content, fantastic on track racing with excellent AI, and decent online options. So where next for a franchise that needs to appear on the shelves precisely 12 months later?<br /> The answer is, in many ways, more of the same. There is no great overhaul here, and on paper the additions sound worryingly like desperate attempts to justify the purchase to consumers. Improved tyre model, media interviews, ERS management, expanded classic lineup. You would be forgiven for feeling underwhelmed and cautious heading into this year's entry.<br /> Get out on track though, and you may immediately begin to have those worries washed away. Codies have heavily pushed the handling updates in the marketing, and the li...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12963">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12963#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewWed, 12 Sep 2018 14:16:22 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12963#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12963evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Narcosis Reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12962<h4>Narcolepsy</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12962"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/narcosis1.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Narcosis Review"></a>Review by Dean Davis.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Narcosis is a first-person horror game set on the ocean floor. You are the only survivor of a deep-sea methane mining crew killed by a devastating earthquake, you are tasked with surviving the disaster and making it back up to the surface. Unfortunately, you are not alone. The setting and the overall plot are both interesting and somewhat fascinating, but the game is let down by some poor decisions, with a weirdly dated control system and poor combat mechanics being the biggest (but not the only) issues.<br /> The story revolves around the main characters struggle to survive and cope with the loss of his fellow workers and friends, left with nothing but your diving suit and a rudimentary knife you progress through the game while the main character narrates.<br /> Narcosis has some interesting ideas regarding survivability here which do not pan out as I would have liked. As you go through the game ...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12962">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12962#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewWed, 12 Sep 2018 12:03:27 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12962#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12962evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Flat Heroes Switch reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12961<h4>Living Outside the Box</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12961"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/flatheroes1.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Flat Heroes Switch review"></a>Review by Alex Vaughn.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Have you played N? You&rsquo;re a black, sprinting, jumping, wall jumping, nameless ninja who has a taste for gold and is, for some reason, trapped in an endless cycle of death. Each level providing the chance for more gold but attempts more and more aggressively to murder you instead.&nbsp;<br /> It is Awesome. It has been iterated on for decades, including the ridiculously fully featured Switch release of N++. Buy N++. It&rsquo;s a platforming, somersaulting dream. It&rsquo;s huge. You can fill a minute worth of spare time and achieve something. It never, ever, kills you unfairly. It&rsquo;s always your fault for just not being good enough. There is no trial and error, you are immediately aware of your surroundings,&nbsp; what is attempting to obliterate you and where the exit is.&nbsp;<br /> Flat Heroes takes this idea&hellip;and&hellip;well.

I think. It's unclear, though there is lore to be found when you are out and about (watch for blue candles), there's something about prisons and plagues, but you are going to have to play the game yourself to find out, no spoilers for you here. We ain't that kind of website.<br /> What I can tell you about is how the game works. It's one of those infernal Rogue light games, you know the score by now, die and you find yourself back at the start faced with having to do the whole lot again. Now people who know me will tell you I'm absolute arse fudge at games, I die lots, but Dead Cells mitigates my shitness by offering up some unique upgrades that will permanently unlock as you play (and mutations that are just for your current play through, pick the extra life first people!).

I know I&rsquo;m not alone. It didn&rsquo;t have a massive map or insane amount of side-quests, it was just this charmingly focused story set in a really small yet detailed world.&nbsp;<br /> There&rsquo;s something about the world they&rsquo;ve built in Yakuza 0 that reminds me of that same Shenmue feel. The entertainment districts the game is set in may not be massive, but they genuinely feel far more alive than most other open-world playgrounds. Those bright lights and vibrants colours create an amazing backdrop to intertwining stories that quickly draw you in and have you desperate to see where it takes the great cast of characters. The story takes place in 1988, so the clothing on all the NPCs you meet is every bit as vibrant as the world around you.<br /> This is the first game in the series chronologically, which makes for a very welcoming experience for serie...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12959">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12959#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewTue, 07 Aug 2018 18:44:32 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12959#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12959evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net The Mooseman Reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12958<h4>Not a Canadian Superhero</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12958"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/mooseman1.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="The Mooseman Review"></a>&nbsp;<br /> Review by Alex Vaughan.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> The Mooseman is a lesson in Finnish folklore; a world of stories and mystical figures I didn&rsquo;t know existed before playing, but started reading up on my own as soon as the game ended. Opening my eyes to a new mythology and inspiring me to learn more, is something worthy of praise &ndash; it's a rare find when gaming enriches the real world and The Mooseman is worthy of plaudits for that alone. Which is a good thing, as the gameplay itself can be somewhat lacking, yet as a wrapper for education, delight and surprise, it does very well indeed.&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;<br /> As a forest dweller, your character being what I can best describe as a Druid, embarks on a quest to the Land of the Dead in a Playdead inspired, &...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12958">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12958#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewFri, 27 Jul 2018 14:11:14 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12958#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12958evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Kingdom Come: Deliverance From the Ashes DLC Reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12957<h4>Village People.</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12957"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/fromtheashesdlc1.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Kingdom Come: Deliverance From the Ashes DLC Review"></a>Kingdom Come: Deliverance was a real belter of a game, a realistic medieval RPG like nothing else on the market which scored top marks over here on AATG. Developers Warhorse have been pretty forthcoming with the patches and updates, which is great to see, and From the Ashes marks their first paid for expansion to the game.<br /> Here Henry will find himself rebuilding the village of Pribisalvitz, which was being held by a bunch of motley bandits. You don't have to have completed the game to access this new DLC though, you can jump in as soon as you liberate the village. Those who have finished can jump in at any time.<br /> As From the Ashes begins Henry finds himself on a rescue mission, which in true Kingdom Come: Deliverance fashion can be completed in multiple ways I won't spoil here.

Back in the heady days of 2009 there was no American Wotsit snorting his own farts in the oval office, nor a UK desperately trying to kick itself in the balls as hard as it possibly can. But there was Red Faction: Guerilla by Volition, the lovely people responsible for the Saints Row series.<br /> THQ Nordic have chosen to show the game some love in this so called Re-Mars-tered edition, fully reworking the graphics with juicy new textures and specular maps, along with updated shadows and shaders and all those other things that make games look not shit. You also get native 4K support on PC, 900p at 60fps on Xbox One, 1800p at 60fps or 4K at 30fps on Xbox One X, 1080p at 60fps on PS4 and finally either 1500p at 60fps or 4K at 30fps on PlayStation Pro.<br /> Anyway, enough with the numbers, what exactly is Red Faction: Guerilla all about I hear you cry.

The promise of VR has inevitably led to a number of low effort, or at least low achievement, titles that will be a sure fire waste of your cash. So what to make of the new VR update for Kona, a low key title from Canadian developer Parabole, originally released to the console in tired old 2D in March?<br /> The game itself first though, which is described as an &lsquo;interactive tale&rsquo;. You&rsquo;ll play as a detective brought to a remote, snowy, French Canadian village in the 1970s by a wealthy client. It&rsquo;s difficult to say more without going into spoilers, but everything goes predictably pear shaped and leaves you alone in a harsh environment with little clue about what has occurred here and no resources to speak of that could help you leave.<br /> Kona&rsquo;s structure is i...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12954">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12954#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewMon, 02 Jul 2018 12:29:31 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12954#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12954evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Conan Exiles Reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12953<h4>Conan Eileen</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12953"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/conanexiles1.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Conan Exiles Review"></a>Review by Terry Bonds.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Once in a while I find myself late at night getting lost in YouTube, stay with me there is a reason for this start, one of those nights I'd somehow got onto the lonely island again - which is no bad thing - they are bloomin' funny.&nbsp; I digress from my digressing, I'd only ever watched the video for dick in a box, I didn't know Justin Trousersnake and Andy Samberg had gone and done two "sequels".&nbsp; So there I was watching 3-way (the golden rule), and then it got to part about how to impress a girl (2 minutes 40 seconds for the curious).&nbsp; Anyway, it's a very good song - 4 out of 5.<br /> Fast forward to now and I've been asked to review another one of these survival games, I'm rubbish at them and I don't really enjoy them.&nbsp; So who better to review Conan Exiles?&nbsp; Look, I've played Subnautica for a bit.

It&rsquo;s a fun game. It looks, sounds and plays nice. There&rsquo;s a compelling two-tone dynamic that finds you playing for considerably longer than originally anticipated.

They also wondered what happened if you made a hybrid of an arcade racer and a competitive team-based shooter. It turns out that what you get is Onrush, and ultimately an incredibly entertaining experience.<br /> So let&rsquo;s get this bit out of the way - Onrush isn&rsquo;t a standard racing game. It&rsquo;s not a run to the finish line, and there are no points for being ahead of the opposition. If you crash you get respawned somewhere near the running pack, so you&rsquo;re always close to the action.

Upon examining them you bind yourselves to their souls before being caught up in the destruction of Urralia. Luckily for you, a witch can warp you to a hub world, here she explains that the godless priestess Vera was murdered, and this was the catalyst to bring about the end of the world.&nbsp; The Harbinger&rsquo;s task is to then find out who murdered Vera and in doing so ...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12950">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12950#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewMon, 04 Jun 2018 14:01:14 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12950#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12950evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Runner3 reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12949<h4>The Gait Gatsby</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12949"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/runner31.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Runner3 review"></a>Runner3 is an ugly game, that's not a criticism, it's pretty much what developer Choice Provisions were going for. Imagine a cross between Ren and Stimpy and the awesome puppet web series Don't Hug Me, I'm Scared and you'd be some way there. Not content with all this visual splendour your ears will also be accosted by one Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario himself! I hope Nintendo don't know you are moonlighting, Charles, their lawyers are formidable I hear.<br /> As for the gameplay, would you be terribly surprised to hear that you are going to be doing a fair amount of running? You don't have to hold right to go here, you are always running, but you are responsible for jumping over obstacles and bizarre baddies, kicking through walls, knowing when to hold the jump button down so you float down to earth more gently and mastering that bloody double jump.

With his new studio Airship Syndicate, Madureira returns to the world of Battle Chasers, his very own fantasy comic book series.<br /> After a lovingly-drawn intro that faintly calls to mind the opening scenes to many an 80s or 90s Saturday morning cartoon - though with a bit more blood than you might have seen on Live and Kicking - we're introduced to ...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12947">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12947#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewTue, 15 May 2018 16:51:03 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12947#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12947evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Dragon's Crown Pro PS4 Reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12946<h4>Fighting Fantasy</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12946"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/dragonscrown1.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Dragon's Crown Pro PS4 Review"></a>You know what I love? A bloody good side scrolling beat-em-up. Us fans of the genre have been starved of a good brawler for years now, but in one corner of the globe we have a stalwart hero, namely Vanillaware, who are probably most famous for developing the Odin Sphere series. In Dragon's Crown Pro they have prettied up their original 2013 release to a full 4K and added a wonderful orchestral soundtrack by Hitoshi Sakimoto. And by golly doesn't it look beautiful and sound lovely.<br /> Dragon's Crown Pro looks like a gorgeous fantasy painting come to life, with everything animated perfectly and with style. One sticking point for many could be the character design by George Kamitani (who also previously worked with Capcom on Dungeons and Dragons: Tower of Doom), yes the female characters are, shall we say blessed, with cracking top bollocks and bountiful bottoms, but this is equal opportunities fantasy bodies, with the guys also being clad in...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12946">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12946#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewFri, 11 May 2018 12:31:19 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12946#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12946evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Frostpunk PC Reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12945<h4>Baby It's Cold Outside</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12945"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/frostpunk1.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Frostpunk PC Review"></a>Review by Dean Davis.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Frostpunk is the new game by 11-bit studios the creators behind This War of Mine.
