A Fisherman's Tale Review
Nagging control issues aside, A Fisherman’s Tale is a charming PlayStation VR game that I found to be a total joy to experience - the same joy I felt playing Astro Bot: Rescue Mission. As far as first-person virtual reality experiences go, this makes the medium so worthwhile.
Rock of Ages 2: Bigger and Boulder Review
Rock of Ages 2 is a fun and madcap adventure, giving you the ability to desecrate art and history, but the game has a habit of taking a little too long with each match. The humor and character carry it a long way and the battles can come to very tense nail-biting finishes, but a better balance on the damage and more interesting map designs would do a lot to help give it more legs.
Energy Cycle Review
While this review is for the PS4 version (Energy Cycle is also out on Steam and Xbox One), I can't help but think this type of simplistic puzzle game is better served on mobile devices. It almost seems like wasted potential, honestly. Weird, right? Regardless, outside of die-hard puzzle lovers though, Energy Cycle is just too repetitive to really recommend to anyone.
Chime Sharp Review
This game will not offer you a helping hand, so if you want to succeed, you’d best be prepared to put in a lot of effort. It might look a little bland, but it’s certainly not a bad way to spend some of your time. Honestly, if you’re a fan of electronic music and have a lot of patience, those are good reasons to try it.
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.
Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride Review
In the end, if you enjoy puzzle games, Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride may be right up your alley. With its variety of puzzle types, a fairy-tale story for some minor plot distraction, and a helpful hint system in place, this is a fairly easy game to recommend to any pure puzzle fan.
Small Radios Big Televisions Review
With no real challenges to test your mettle and a game length of just under two hours, it doesn’t come with much staying power. It might be more fun as a VR game, given the premise and the places the cassette tapes reveal. Either way, there is little more to the game outside of it being a “Hey, check this out” experience.
Lumo yields itself to multiple playthroughs and sports plenty of absurdly difficult trophies to strive for. It won't be winning any awards for its narrative, (in fact I don't think there was one line of dialogue through the entire game) but it's just a solid little puzzle/platformer that prides itself on just being... well, fun.
