Evil West review – One of the year’s best action games let down by outdated level design

Evil West is a fun action game, but it could’ve been a lot more fun. There’s an early 2000s interview with director Quentin Tarantino in which a conservative pundit berates him about the level of gruesome violence in his movies. Their impassionate pleadings question the need for violence, but they’re met with a ridiculing, frustrated: “Because it’s so much fun, Jan. Get it?” I thought about that interview as I played Evil West, the new game from the shooter masters at Polish studio, Flying Wild Hog. Evil West is an old-school action game that blends melee combat with firearms; a…

Evil West is probably your favourite action game of 2022

Flying Wild Hog has done it again; impeccable production values, watertight game feel, and the most satisfying kills around. Devil May Cry, Bulletstorm, and God of War walk into a bar. They all sit, have a drink, and chat about revenge (or something). Suddenly, a gravel-voiced cowboy with pissed off eyes and a six-shooter in his hand kicks the saloon doors in. “This is my turf, lads,” he says, sounding like he’s been on 12 packs of cigs a day since he was five years old. “We don’t need Norsemen, space edgelords, or the son of a demon king in…

Trek To Yomi is a samurai saga that oozes style and simplicity

From the small slice I’ve played of samurai slasher Trek To Yomi, I’m convinced it’s going to be the most Instagrammable game out there. Every frame looks gorgeous, capturing feudal Japan through a grainy black and white lens that evokes classic samurai flicks. Thankfully, there’s some substance to match this style too. Combat is elegant and the story seems refined, not bloated, which makes this a ronin romp worth watching out for. Read more

Shadow Warrior 3 delayed into next year

The fast-paced, fast-talking violence of Shadow Warrior 3 will not arrive this year after all, now pushed back into “early 2022.” Devolver Digital and developers Flying Wild Hog explain it’s the usual reason: they want more time to make the FPS good, yeah? A good reason. For now, you can watch the new trailer announcing the delay. Read more

Co-op shooter Space Punks looks like a top-down Borderlands

I’m not being pithy for the sake of a headline. Space Punks really does look a lot like Borderlands: it’s a cartoonish, co-op looter shooter. The key differences are that it’s top-down (like Borderlands’ original inspiration of Diablo), the shooting looks a lot more fun and OTT, and the comedy begins and ends by adding the word ‘space’ to everything.
