Quite often games are built on mysteries and the unknown, and the player making discoveries that inform the world and illuminate a story. Skillfully done, this process can be emotionally satisfying, mechanically rewarding and intellectually engaging. Hob - a new game from the developers of the Torchlight series - is also built on mysteries.
Jet Car Stunts
Jet Car Stunts is not a bad game. The visuals, while a little sparse and bland on a big screen, are still crisp and vibrant. The gameplay, while loose, can be very enjoyable. The biggest problem (glitches and camera problems notwithstanding) is that it seems like the wrong game was remade. JCS would be a fine game if a far superior version hadn’t already existed since 2013. It’s a shame that JCS2 wasn’t remade or its improvements and expansions somehow included in the remake. As it stands, Jet Car Stunts is a slightly glitchy port of a mediocre game.
Trials Fusion isn't a bad game at its core, but its design doesn't take advantage of the best parts of the series well enough, and the technical issues surrounding it all are a bummer. Hopefully a series of fixes are on the way, because this series is still enjoyable deep down. A line from the game's purposely absurd intro song booms, "Lightyears ahead of Evolution!"
Cargo Commander does a lot of things right. When the risk of getting cargo mixes with the need to return to your home cube it's an exciting feeling. It requires you to think of how you’re going to get through the more difficult cubes in order to get the big cargo reward. Unfortunately, the game's repetition and unchanging structure keep it from capitalizing on its strong foundation.
