Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge

PC
7.90
Dominic TarasonJun 15, 2022
The best arcade games hold up even on your fifth or 10th time through, while I feel I've seen all this has to offer after just two full laps. I can't see myself coming back to it months or years later like I've done with Streets of Rage 4 (especially with its DLC) or Fight'N Rage. Like the work of its returning voice cast, Shredder's Revenge is a heartfelt and enthusiastic performance that feels like a slightly strained attempt to recapture lost glory.

The Quarry

PC
7.00
Jon BailesJun 08, 2022
The plot, performances and visual fidelity are worth turning up for, as are some of the shocks, but more than ever much of your involvement seems like protective padding sandwiched between the scripted thrills. You may well feel at home in The Quarry, then.

Card Shark

PC

Imogen MellorJun 07, 2022
Card Shark is a delight. It's a card game like no other and as someone who never could do any magic tricks, now I feel enlightened as to how trickery could be afoot with just the smallest flex of a finger.

Sniper Elite 5

PC
7.10
Sam GreerJun 01, 2022
Under the right circumstances Sniper Elite 5 is a decent, occasionally great, stealth game—surprising enough to give it an edge, but too inconsistent to keep it. It wisely has its eye on the competition; it just can't quite hit the mark.

Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy

PC
5.90
Kerry BrunskillMay 26, 2022
Crumbling doors Unexplored 2 tells me will buckle with sufficient force fail to react to any blow. The cave entrance in the tutorial section was half buried in a solid wall that visibly led nowhere. Getting lost once teleported my Wayfarer's icon to a void-like corner of the map.

Eternal Threads

PC
7.20
Luke WinkieMay 24, 2022
Eternal Threads consists of about 10 rooms, with six primary characters, and it's easy to imagine Cosmonaut expanding on that compact format, further exploring crisscrossing vectors in temporal fiction with a sequel that makes me feel cleverer than Eternal Threads did. What the studio has now is a compelling set of character studies, but it held my hand too much.

Hardspace: Shipbreaker

PC
9.10
Natalie ClaytonMay 24, 2022
It's a game about being proud of a job well done, and fighting to make your workplace one you can be proud of. It's a deliberately repetitive thing, which might be tedious if you can't find enjoyment out of methodically cutting apart ships across two, three, even four continuous shifts. Where small ships broke apart in minutes, pulling apart a Javelin or Gecko requires real commitment.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong

PC
5.00
Rick LaneMay 18, 2022
Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong offers an impressively flexible story, but that can't save it from its mediocre writing and scattershot game design.

Trek to Yomi

PC
5.50
George YangMay 12, 2022
A gorgeous game with frustrating combat and glitchy exploration, Trek to Yomi is the definition of style over substance.

Citizen Sleeper

PC
8.00
Jody MacgregorMay 06, 2022
An evocative life-sim RPG you won't want to wake up from.

Rogue Legacy 2

PC
8.80
Anne-Marie CoyleMay 04, 2022
A sublime addition to the Rogue Legacy family and one of the best roguelites yet.

Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters

PC
8.70
Robert ZakMay 04, 2022
A layered and engaging space opera that triumphs both on and off the battlefield.

Galactic Civilizations IV

PC
6.80
Rick LaneApr 29, 2022
Galactic Civilizations 4 is a vast and dependable grand space strategy. But there's little here that radical, and expect to meet it halfway.

The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe

PC
8.80
Christopher LivingstonApr 27, 2022
A delightful update that fills the original game with even more humorous and thoughtful rabbit holes to get lost in.

Teardown

PC
9.00
Natalie ClaytonApr 21, 2022
Teardown is a game that's excited about its own technology, and wants to show you all the ways it can break stuff. It's a quietly brilliant series of heist puzzles, a never-ending series of new worlds to break and new tools to break them with. But most of all, Teardown really is just a smashing great time.

MotoGP 22

PC
7.60
Phil IwaniukApr 21, 2022
A documentary format worth expanding and repeating, more assists, and the same rough but rewarding racing.

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

PC
7.70
Ted LitchfieldApr 11, 2022
The Skywalker Saga's competent design is elevated by its infectious, charming sense of humor.

Chinatown Detective Agency

PC
7.50
Alexis OngApr 06, 2022
Chinatown Detective Agency is a solid hardboiled detective adventure with a unique DIY approach to clue-solving—but it’s most impressive as a cultural artefact.

Abermore

PC
5.40
Jeremy PeelApr 06, 2022
Even Abermore's cult of beetle worshippers would draw the line at this many bugs.

Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons

PC
8.10
Phil SavageApr 04, 2022
A worthy send-off to Guild Wars 2's Elder Dragon saga, and a reason to be optimistic about the future of the game.

Weird West

PC
7.90
Tom SykesMar 31, 2022
Look past the murky aesthetic and clunky combat: this is an exciting fusion of immersive sim and CRPG.

NORCO

PC
9.40
Alexis OngMar 30, 2022
A must-play for anyone interested in narrative-driven games.

TUNIC

PC
8.60
Anne-Marie CoyleMar 29, 2022
Delightfully difficult combat and meaningful exploration make Tunic a retro-inspired modern marvel.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands

PC
7.00
Jody MacgregorMar 23, 2022
Better than Borderlands 3, but not quite reaching the heights of Borderlands 2 at its best.

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin

PC
7.20
Anne-Marie CoyleMar 22, 2022
Team Ninja serves up some solid Soulslike combat with a generous helping of cheese.
