Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle: Donkey Kong Adventure Review

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle was a surprisingly fun strategy game that blended the Mushroom Kingdom with Ubisoft’s raving Rabbids. Less than a year after its initial release, the game has returned with the new DLC expansion Donkey Kong Adventure, introducing Nintendo’s beloved ape into the fray.

Darkest Dungeon: The Color of Madness Review

Regardless, the Darkest Dungeon is still just that, dark, terrifying, and endlessly aggravating in the best possible way. While the Thing that came from the stars doesn’t quite reach the horrifying peaks of the Shambler, or the *shudder* body horror of those damned mosquito vampires, any reason to revisit the homestead and check in on the poor, unfortunate souls who answered the call is good one.

The Infectious Madness of Dr. Dekker Review

There is certainly an audience this game will appeal to, but for me personally, I was left tired and listless after each of my half hour sessions (I’d probably make a terrible psychiatrist). Also, 95% of the game takes place in the same room with the same backing ambient track that slowly worms its way into your brain after hours on repeat.

The Crew 2 Review

The huge playing area aside, the strength of The Crew 2 is its easy accessibility. It won’t alienate players with some snotty attitude or annoying narrator always trying to tell what’s best for you. Instead, the game welcomes you in to do whatever you like.

NieR: Automata - Become as Gods Edition Review

Beautiful, eccentric and whimsical, Yoko Taro’s one of a kind dream child is something every Xbox One owner should experience .

Red Faction: Guerrilla Re-MARS-tered Review

Finding new and creative ways to topple buildings is really the only thing I needed out of the game, both now and in 2009. Another thing the remaster has going for it is the price. Thirty dollars is a respectable amount to ask for an updated version of a video game that excels at doing one cool thing really well.

Legend of Kay Anniversary (Switch) Review

After playing through Legend of Kay, I really have mixed feelings. I got used to its outdated features that were popping up from time to time, and really enjoyed the overall story and especially its delivery in a comic book fashion.

Jurassic World Evolution Review

While there have been Jurassic Park video games in the past, Jurassic World Evolution by Frontier Developments is the best logical design choice for a game based on the Michael Crichton series. A fun twist on the amusement park management genre, the game lets you channel your inner Hammond to spit in the eye of God as you manufacture dinosaurs with all the cold efficiency of an automated assembly line.

Downward Spiral: Horus Station Review

I’ve always been a fan of games with derelict sci-fi environments. I could go on forever about every little detail that made System Shock 2 so good. When I saw Downward Spiral: Horus Station on Steam, I just knew that I had to review this space station exploration adventure developed by 3rd Eye Studios.

Dream Alone Review

Dream Alone is one of the darkest games I have played. It’s not because of its chilling storyline, creepy atmosphere or horrifying imagery. Rather, the game display is literally so dark that it’s sometimes hard to see the screen. When factoring in obscured death traps and poor level design, the issues turn this dream into a nightmare.

Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn Review

Why does this game exist, I asked myself as I booted Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn up, and I continue to ask it now that I’ve experienced it. The original Shaq Fu was a fighting game released in the mid-1990s that many consider one of the "worst games of all time", and it getting any kind of sequel or follow up baffles me.
