After tediously fiddling through all the menial puzzles, the ending just made me shrug my shoulders instead of giving me shivers that I was supposed to have felt. It’s too bad that the promising premise fizzled as soon as the gameplay showed its true colors, watering down the prevailing mystery in the process.
Fade to Silence Review
Fade to Silence is a true survival game that I want to like a lot more than I do. A passionate team has cooked up some tasty scraps in this frozen hell, but I’m forced to share the meal with irritating company. The ideas are great in theory, but too many elements end up in the realm of mediocrity.
Giga Wrecker Alt. Review
Giga Wrecker’s mishmash graphics, wonky gameplay and erratic physics make it like a parody of an indie game. It could have been a really well-made puzzle-platformer but somehow, the developer decided to settle with less, even though the console version is a second take on the game.
A Plague Tale: Innocence Review
The way the narrative and gameplay fit together to make Amicia and Hugo’s journey both compelling and emotional is an impressive accomplishment that put A Plague Tale up there with the best of them. If you are in the market for a somber, story-driven experience, I cannot recommend A Plague Tale enough.
Days Gone Review
Before I got my hands on Days Gone, I questioned whether or not there would be any new on offer or if it would end up as just another property trying to provide those Walking Dead moments of either gratuitous violence or unneeded sadness. What I played instead was a game that wanted to push past the darkness and see if there was anything left for humanity to live for beyond just surviving.
Where The Bees Make Honey Review
Where The Bees Make Honey has some interesting ideas with presentation and puzzles. However, the persistent high level of frustration I felt with trying to navigate the majority of the adventure because of issues out of my control completely overshadowed any of the good stuff.
