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.
The Walking Dead: The Final Season - Episode 4 Review
All that aside, I feel like as an ending for the franchise, as an end to Clementine’s story, we’ve gone out as well as it could have. This is The Walking Dead, after all, so any hope we are left with is automatically tempered against the death and despair of the world, and the fact that we are, as we always have been, the true walkers in a dead world. But for an ending, I think one will do.
Red Matter Review
In space, comrade, no one can hear your praise the Motherland. Vertical Robot makes its debut on the PlayStation VR with Red Matter, an awesome first-person adventure game about wandering through a moon base left abandoned by its crew. With its evocative environmental storytelling and chilling atmosphere, Red Matter comes off as the beautiful love child between BioShock and Singularity.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Legacy of the Lost Blade, Episode 1 - Hunted Review
The added lore is a welcome addition in the episode but what Hunted boils down to is this: if what you want is to spend three more hours doing the same things you did for sixty hours, then Legacy of the Lost Blade’s first episode is a success on all fronts.
Sunless Sea: Zubmariner Edition Review
When it comes down to it, Sunless Sea: Zubmariner Edition is an ambitious game that failed to ultimately capture me. Early on it discouraged me from continuous play, and while I eventually got into a rhythm, the barriers of entry still gated off levels of enjoyment.
Right off the bat, North throws a curveball at you. There is no saving or pausing. The game is built to be a short session, completed in about an hour. I admire this honest opening, and agree that the game would not have worked had it been cut up in multiple play sessions. But whether or not the content on display justifies the choice is one I find myself struggling with.
Last Day of June Review
Imagine yourself being caught inside a lovely impressionist watercolor painting, where the denizens wordlessly tell a heart wrenching, emotionally charged story. With that in mind, you get the basic premise of The Last of June, a narrative-focused adventure game from the developers Ovosonico.
Echoes of the Fey: The Fox’s Trail Review
Echoes of the Fey: The Fox’s Trail was an enjoyable surprise. I wasn’t expecting the sheer amount of ending variations and deep themes that unfolded within this three-hour mystery. I appreciated that despite this being the first episode, it was a complete tale. Woodsy Studios has proven the worth of the intriguing fantasy world of Oraz, and hopefully, they can continue to improve in developing the second part of this magical tale.
In the end it all comes down to what kind of a game you are willing to play. If you want a straight up horror game, 2Dark probably isn't the game you are looking for. If however, you want a fun point-and-click adventure game with grain of tension, I believe you will find 2Dark appealing.
