The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep Review

If you’re expecting The Bard’s Tale IV to be an action-RPG on par with some recent blockbusters, you may be disappointed. This is not a cinematic experience with bleeding edge graphics and breathless action and combat. However, if you approach the game as a super-enhanced, classic dungeon crawler that both fits into the legacy and moves the needle on a well-respected, beloved franchise, then you will be pleased by it.

Dead in Vinland Review

What's impressive about Dead in Vinland - part survival management, part RPG, part roguelike and part turn-based combat game - is that instead of being a Frankenstein's monster mashup, it pretty painlessly melds so many disparate genres. Even more complex than the developer CCCP's previous entry into an eventual trilogy, Dead in Bermuda, Vinland has interesting and amusing characters and a lot to keep the player occupied.

World of Final Fantasy Review

Originally released for PlayStation 4 and Vita in 2016, the spin-off game World of Final Fantasy tries to bring fan service to all Final Fantasy democracies - including newcomers to the series. Adventuring twins Reynn and Lann traverse familiar scenes and meet up with the famous characters from the long history of Final Fantasy. The game serves as a traditional turn-based JRPG with bit of a Pokémon thrown in.
