ARK: Survival Evolved (Switch) Review

ARK: Survival Evolved is a solid survival adventure with unique mechanics, an intriguing mystery and lore, and plenty of years of development in its past to show for it. However, there are just too many issues on the Switch version right now to enjoy it to its fullest.

Tied Together Review

Tied Together by Headup Games is the latest entry to Nintendo Switch’s ever-growing indie library. This unassuming title may not be a charmer among other, shinier games. However, it’s a solid cooperative puzzle-platformer with relatively interesting gameplay, provided that you have some friends to play together with, as the game is exclusively a couch co-op multiplayer.

Murderous Pursuits Review

Fed up with chicken dinners or whatever is served for being the last one standing in battle royale games that are all the rage now? Bored with gunning and running to tally up in the more traditional multiplayer shooters? How about something more cerebral and stealthy - a slow-paced multiplayer experience that still has the same idea of eliminating other people from the fray? Well then, Scottish developer Blazing Griffin may have something for you to whet your homicidal appetite.

Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash Review

The improbably large-breasted shinobi girls from Senran Kagura series are back, but not wielding swords or ninja arts. Instead, they grab water guns for some frenzied water tagging in a tournament after a promise of winners getting anything they could possibly want. The premise is just as silly as it sounds and a good excuse to flash the girls’ expanded funbags, almost bursting out of their teeny-weeny bikini tops. But really, under excessive boobs galore of Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash, there’s actually a cool and addictive game and not just something to ogle at. Even though it’s most definitely ogle-worthy too!

Gang Beasts Review

The concept of Gang Beasts is pretty easy to follow. You and three other local players, or seven for online play, are pitted against each other in a contest to see who can be the last one standing. There are no weapons with which to murder each other. Instead, each match challenges players to see who can be the best at punching someone’s lights out and tossing them out of the arena.

Worms: W.M.D. Review

I have been a long time fan of the Worms series, especially Worms Armageddon. I am excited to say that we finally have a Worms game that not only surpasses Worms Armageddon in terms of fun, but also in terms of strategic depth and chaos. Worms W.M.D. is the best Worms game I have ever played.

Atomega Review

I’d like to see the game get more time in the oven because it’s legitimately cool and the concept is fresh and new. Ubisoft and Reflections didn’t quite put their best first forward with this release. But with time and energy, Atomega has the potential to evolve into an addicting multiplayer experience.

Nidhogg 2 Review

While nothing in the game is inherently wrong, some additions feel like a bit of a departure from what is otherwise an excellent game. I like to see bigger and better things from a sequel, but sometimes all a simple game needs is stability and consistency in order to remain at the top. Nidhogg 2 loses some of its simplicity in translation, but it’s still quite an enjoyable time.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Review

Although well written and acted, its story is still too binary and lacks the subtlety of real-life geopolitical conflict. Amazing, its short campaign can feel too long in places, and its stop-and-start pace suffers in comparison to its shooter peers. Multiplayer and Zombie modes fare better, and for many players, that will be good enough.

Rainbow Six: Siege

Rainbow Six: Siege delivers on what it promised to be: a well-made, multiplayer-focused, team shooter. To criticize it for not having a stronger single player experience is accusing it of a pretense it never made, and consumers will decide whether the product has broad enough appeal to warrant its price. Beyond that, the game would benefit from more visual detail and polish, and a coherent narrative that placed the matches in context or part of an arc and while the levels are well designed and the weapons and toys are satisfying to use, the game wildly and incongruously strays here and there from its realistic roots. A "healing gun?" Really? Right now, Rainbow Six: Siege feels like a framework onto which much more content could be added.

Primal Carnage: Extinction

Suddenly the raptor’s head clips awkwardly through the tree and you remember where you are what you’re doing: playing a pretty mediocre video game version of a great idea.

Rayman Legends

Any control issues aside, Rayman Legends never ceases to be enjoyable. The game is so fully featured that it makes Rayman Origins seem like a prototype. From the game’s delightful tone to it’s gorgeous graphics and top notch level design, Legends is better than Origins quantitatively and qualitatively. Not only that, it’s one of the best games of 2013 and one of the best platformers of all time. Maybe even better than Rayman 2.
