Darksiders III Review

When viewed against the other two games in the series, Darksiders III is a complete disappointment. The gameplay is harder than it needs to be and does no favors. It’s also half-broken in a lot of places, lacks polish, and its stability is questionable at best.

Warriors Orochi 4 Review

There is fun to be had with Warriors Orochi 4, I certainly found myself hooked in once I got going, yet I don’t recommend this game for the uninitiated. It failed to leave a strong lasting impression, and I lacked the emotional connection to the story concepts.

Castaway Paradise Review

Castaway Village’s successes and unique twists aren’t enough to make it a title that’s going to stick around for a long time.

Crisis on the Planet of the Apes VR Review

What makes virtual reality such a compelling medium is its ability to put you in someone else’s shoes and see the world through their eyes. The beginning sequence in Crisis on the Planet of the Apes does a really good job of pulling the player out of their comfortable living room and into a nightmare world where they, cast as an ape that has gained intelligence, are viewed with intense hatred and disgust.

Eventide: Slavic Fable Review

As a stand-alone title, there are plenty of puzzles to enjoy here, and the game is very user-friendly as well (not to mention an easy target for trophy hunters). If you enjoy the genre and those things are a plus for you, this can still be a title worth picking up.

Earthlock: Festival of Magic Review

In the end, while the story is regrettably un-memorable and fairly lacking, the game play makes up for it with several clever, strategic spins on time-tested game play mechanics. Back that up with solid graphics and audio and you have yourself an old-school RPG that should scratch that itch you've been having.

Heart&Slash

Though the camera is often problematic and those looking for a story-driven experience will likely be disappointed, Heart&Slash still presents a detailed and delightful world as well as a surprisingly deep gameplay experience. For a game without a single living thing in its world, it has a lot of heart.

Gemini: Heroes Reborn

There is a lot to dislike about Gemini: Heroes Reborn. The game performs shoddily at times and it’s generic and predictable in both its look and plot. Where the game shines is in experimentation and dumb ragdoll mechanics that will make you laugh as soldiers bounce around levels. It’s certainly not for everyone, but for those willing to look past the bumps and bruises, there is a decently fun time to be had with Gemini: Heroes Reborn.

Foul Play

But then I’d have to fight endless enemies that took any enjoyment I was having away from me. The combat isn’t bad or broken, it’s just not very fun. It’s a shame that the combat can’t live up to the rest of the enjoyable world that surrounds Foul Play. I found myself looking for the bits of the game that didn’t involve actually playing it, and that’s never how a game should be.

Inside My Radio

Inside My Radio is a brief, interesting romp that never lives up to the potential it enters with. The first few levels will leave you feeling excited to see what’s next but there really isn’t much to see. The cards are on the table after level two and there aren’t any surprises to be had after that. For a game that looks and sounds so fresh and interesting, Inside My Radio was a disappointing experience that left me feeling unsatisfied and underwhelmed.

The Witness

Even with over 400 puzzles solved, I still feel like I'm scratching the surface. Every time I venture back into the world I discover some small detail I missed or a new set of puzzles. There are over 700 puzzles in the game. In order to see the game's ending, you don't have to complete all of them, but they're always there to come back to after you finish the mandatory puzzles. The Witness is a complex game that rewards its most diligent players in meaningful ways. With a meticulously designed world and the elaborate puzzles that reside within it, The Witness is a game you won't want to miss.

Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment

Re: Hollow Fragment is designed specifically for stalwarts of Sword Art Online. If they haven’t already played the game on the Vita, the digital-only PlayStation 4 version offers more content and a whole new set of levels to conquer. Everyone else should tread carefully.

Infinity Runner

You could start a stamp collection, go get a coffee, donate to charity, a few value meals from Jack in the Box, or pick up one of those weird LEGO knockoffs that licensed Halo and Call of Duty. Anything is better than Infinity Runner.

Mortal Kombat X

Mortal Kombat X continues its tradition of being a grand spectacle and while it may not outperform its predecessor, there's still a great deal of fun to be had
