"In a year that has given us a huge variety of racing games, this nostalgic look back at late '90s classic Rollcage certainly scratches an itch."
"It's an ambitious game - part shoot 'em up space battler, part RPG-based planet explorer - and it's all wrapped up with a great story."
"While some people may find the actual in-game content simple and possibly a little lacklustre, it's the creativity it channels that really sells it."

"The last animal standing wins, naturally, then it's a case of sitting back and enjoying Fox's witty remarks as you claim your prize."
"While many old-school JRPG fans may really enjoy Lost Sphear, ourselves included, the game unfortunately doesn't quite merit the nostalgia it aims to provide."
