The Mystery of Woolley Mountain Review

The Mystery of Woolley Mountain offers a traditional fantasy mystery premise with old-school point-and-click gameplay. However, it falls into the same traps that have plagued the genre for years. The game’s internal logic is hard to follow, the puzzles incorporate too much trial-and-error, and the plot is contrived and inconsistent.

911 Operator Review

911 Operator is about as solid as it could be. It’s a simulation game doing its best to depict a real job, and at the end of the day could only get so close to what a real life 911 Operator does on a daily basis.

Valiant Hearts Review

Valiant Hearts defies the traditional war game, featuring comical, fluidly animated visuals that tell a somber story about people caught in World War I.

Marble It Up Review

The premise is quite simple — roll a marble from start to finish as quickly as possible. There’s little innovation to be found in the ‘marble rolling’ genre, and the game doesn’t look to change the formula in any way. It’s a clear homage to marble games of the past, and even the developers behind Marble It Up know it.

Wasteland 2 (Switch) Review

Given a true commitment, Wasteland 2 comes together very well. Despite some annoyances here and there, and even with a broken analog stick, I kept trying to sneak in to play wherever I could. And that’s what make the Switch version the best choice in my opinion. The ability to play bite-sized pieces of the game on the go can result in you progressing at slower pace, but that only makes the game more enjoyable.

Flood of Light Review

Set in the lonely and abandoned metropolis of Hope City, Irisloft’s Flood of Light is a 2D-puzzle game all about uncovering the mysteries of where you came from, and where everyone else has gone. Accompanied by some friendly robots and a beautiful score, you set out to reduce the flood that has swallowed the city thus far, all the while piecing together the history of Hope City and its downfall.

Victor Vran Overkill Edition Review

Despite some of my gripes, the sum on the whole is a positively bloody good time. The gameplay is rewarding and exhilarating, creating an enjoyable loop that embraces the simplicity of controls by utilizing the complexity of choice. The plot and world are both in great contrast, being humorous when it needs to, but keeping a consistently grimdark tone.

Titan Quest (Switch) Review

The first thing you notice about Titan Quest is its similarity to Diablo. Keeping the God’s eye view point, you move around a bleak-looking world taking out mythical and religiously inspired enemies. The religion of choice here is Greek mythology, featuring satyrs, centaurs, harpies, and... more satyrs.

Code of Princess EX Review

The story follows Solange, a princess clearly underdressed for battle, on her quest to save her kingdom from monsters. She joins forces with a merry band of travelers, including a master thief named Ali, a zombified necromancer, and a guitar-wielding sage who seems to know he’s in a video game.

The Banner Saga 3 Review

The Banner Saga trilogy comes to a close with its final installment, four years after the first game launched. While the gameplay hasn’t changed much since Stoic's Nordic fantasy tactics RPG began, the story’s stakes have dramatically increased. Surviving characters and player decisions play a part in shaping The Banner Saga 3’s epic conclusion.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Review

Not only does it exemplify the Switch’s capacity for multiplayer, its beautiful visuals, exhilarating races and excellent new Battle Mode make for the best Mario Kart yet. If you missed out on the chance to experience the game on the Wii U, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a no-brainer.
