Eighties Video Game Reviews Banner

Transport yourself back to the simpler times when video games were controlled by joysticks and you didn't have to watch overblown and over long intros before playing them. With many games these days you need to spend an entire week trying to unravel a complex control system, or you may find yourself reading an instruction manual the size of an 80s mobile phone. Yes, the graphics may have been more basic back in the 1980s, but the games were far more accessible and, more importantly, FUN!

Below you will find links to reviews (with video clips and screenshots) of a whole range of 8 bit and 16 bit computer games that we used to play on our home computers and consoles back in the day, and when the likes of Atari, Commodore, Sega and Sinclair were dominating the market.
