Fallout 76 Review

 Fallout 76 is a confusing experience, a discord of half-baked ideas and false premises but also some genuinely smart gameplay mechanics that allow solo players and groups alike adventure in equal terms.

The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories Review

Enveloped in a nightmarish world and a gruesome gameplay gimmick, The Missing manages to tell a surprisingly human story about a young person’s search for identity.

Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Review

Still, as rich in content as Black Ops 4 might be, it does exclude a segment of shooter fans that have no interest in multiplayer or competitive gaming, or don’t have a community of gaming friends to play with. Solo players can have a lot of fun with Black Ops 4, though ranking up in multiplayer can be a bit of a frustrating slog through hours of humiliation.

Planet Alpha Review

Planet Alpha was a polarizing game for me. It’s probably one of the most gorgeous games to come out this year and there wasn’t one location on the planet that didn’t elicit some sort of awed verbal response. The platforming gameplay, however, leaves much, much more to be desired.

Forza Horizon 4 Review

Playground Games continues to set the standard in the genre and Forza Horizon 4 is no different. This is open world driving at its absolute finest. The spectacular visuals and stellar roster of cars are great, but the shared world and new weather system is really what makes this one of the best open world racing games this decade.

Dimension Drive Review

When the big game houses compete over who has the most grandiose and the most somber first-or third-person action extravaganza to immerse players in during the gaming flood of fall, indie developers come to rescue and keep up more traditional genres alive. Vertical scrolling shoot 'em ups are one of those old favorite genres, and while Dimension Drive by 2Awesome Studio is not a retro game as such, it has a very old-school attitude and level of challenge written all over it.

State of Mind Review

From the gameplay point of view, State of Mind may stagger but for cyberpunk lovers its story and clean-cut visual design demand to be experienced. Sure, it’s derivative and predictable too, but it’s there where the game gets its strong footing

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Review

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 exists in a sub-genre that I wish was more popular. While there are some co-op focused games with linear levels, they’ve largely given way to the dominant modern design that focuses on competition and open worlds. Vermintide 2 still retains some contemporary elements, but carves out its own niche nonetheless.

Illusion: A Tale of the Mind Review

Young Emma finds herself chained up inside her father’s mind. What has happened? Why is she there? To find out the truth behind her predicament, she embarks on a puzzle adventure with her soft toy rabbit Topsy over a surreal and disjointed landscape, formed together from her father’s experiences.

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

Hitman Sniper Assassin Review

Released as a pre-order bonus for the forthcoming Hitman 2, Hitman Sniper Assassin takes the world’s best assassin, Agent 47, to Austria to crash a wedding party. Perched atop cliffside, he observes the luxury mansion, its garden and wedding guests through the scope of his silenced sniper rifle, biding the time until squeezing the trigger to take out the three targets the contract covers.

Dark Souls Remastered Review

Having spent over a thousand hours playing Dark Souls on the PC - and dozens of hours on the original console versions - it would be fair to say I have a special relationship to the game. Dark Souls is my Mario and Zelda all rolled into one, a transformative experience that at this point in my life has become more ritual than entertainment, a series of moments and tasks that produce a Zen-like state of mind.

Dark Souls Remastered Review

Ys Origin Review

As its title suggests, Ys Origin serves as prequel to the long-running Ys JRPG-series. It takes place 700 years prior to the events of the other games, in the world of Ys ruled by two Goddesses Reah and Feena. For many years Ys lived in peace and harmony until suddenly it all changed when an influx of demons arrived in the land.

Raging Justice Review

There are two kinds of B-grade games. The first have tight budgets and schedules but the developers push their big ideas nevertheless. The result can be a mixed bag but despite the modest production values – or just because of them – these games can be fun. Then there are those titles that are deliberately trash. What they lack, though, is the honesty of real B-grade games, and the results are most often contrived. Guess in which category retro-conscious Raging Justice fits in?
