Greedfall Review

I always get excited when Spiders announces a new game because even though they might have technical difficulties, their games have heart. Greedfall is their latest and easily their best and most polished game to date.

Nauticrawl: 20,000 Atmospheres Review

Nauticrawl is an absolute treat to play. What it lacks in depth is made up for by its sheer devotion to an intuitive design. The game eschews the excessive tutorialization found in many modern titles in favor of letting the player learn for themselves.

Decay of Logos Review

When the game’s concept finally clicks, it turns out to be a smart action adventure that is wildly different from the usual indie tropes. It’s so exciting to end up in new and thrilling environments to explore after arduous treks through hostile lands.

Children of Morta Review

While Children of Morta stays pretty solidly in the tradition of recent RPG/roguelikes, its packaging — graphics, design, story and characters — elevate it above the pack and players who have grown weary of the genre will find it refreshing.

Heave Ho Review

With its unique premise and simple yet challenging gameplay, Heave Ho is an easy recommendation for those looking for their next party hit.

WRC 8 FIA World Rally Championship Review

Overall, WRC 8 screams mediocrity in every turn, something akin to a budget title, but still it’s sold for a full price. It’s not a bad game by any means but not that great either. At its best, WRC 8 can be nice enough to hop into now and then but nice isn’t enough when there’s a superior rally racing game available.

Astral Chain Review

Astral Chain feels like the culmination of Platinum Games’ work, combining sleek character-action gameplay with well-defined progression mechanics, a striking world, and more than a few memorable moments.

Torchlight II Review

Although it lacks mod support, Torchlight II has been ported to the Switch intact with the game’s full campaign, procedurally generated dungeons and four player co-op play. Thanks to its simple-by-design art style, the game has aged pretty well visually and is as bright and colorful as it was on the PC.

Hunt: Showdown Review

Are we in the second wave of battle royale games? I think we must be. Games like Super Animal Royale and now, Hunt: Showdown, are taking the genre in new directions and trying fresh approaches and mechanics. Bravo, I say.

Omega Labyrinth Life Review

Omega Labyrinth Life attempts to combine genres quite daringly, as it mixes a rougelike dungeon crawler with a story-heavy JRPG, folding in a light life simulation. The game doesn’t do enough to make each fit together well enough, though. The inclusion of each hampered the others, creating a title that felt disjointed and confused.

Rebel Galaxy Outlaw Review

Outlaw is irrevocably everything that the first game should have been. It combines arcade and simulation gameplay in way that is dynamic and fun but it definitely does require commitment.

Gears 5 Review

By most metrics — polish, graphics, writing, acting and engaging game play mechanics — Gears 5 is an impressive product for both solo players and competitive or cooperative shooter fans. But moving forward, the series desperately needs to venture into new ways of telling its stories and pacing its encounters.

Apsulov: End of Gods Review

As a design doc, a game that combines horror, sci-fi and Norse mythology sounds intriguing but in actually, Apsulov just seems uncertain of its identity. With too much clunky action for a narrative driven walking simulator, and not enough combat to excel as an action game, it’s a lot of bits and pieces that don’t quite connect.
