Devil's Hunt

PC
2.00
Samuel GuglielmoSep 17, 2019
Devil’s Hunt is a video game that just doesn’t do anything worth seeing. It isn’t unique, and worse, it isn’t fun. I guess it successfully makes me want to read the book series, but more to see if it’s as much of a flaming wreck as this game is. Don’t hunt this devil down. It certainly cries.

Astral Chain

Switch
8.50
Austin SutherSep 12, 2019
Astral Chain features a perfectly realized world filled with wonderful characters and awesome architecture. It runs perfect on the Nintendo Switch and looks stellar, too. The predictable story is one of the only faults of this over-the-top, incredibly fun action game.

GEARS 5

PC
9.00
Samuel GuglielmoSep 12, 2019
Gears 5's campaign is the best the series has seen, and Escape mode is a brilliant new addition. It's fun to play, beautiful to look at, and full of some of the best characters the series has ever seen.

Telling Lies

PC
6.00
William WorrallSep 12, 2019
Telling Lies has an interesting story but is let down by a lack of direction and a clunky UI design. Even interesting characters can save the game, and a watered-down epilogue which is supposed to entice repeated playthroughs just leaves a sour taste in the mouth.

Green Hell

PC
8.50
Jeffrey LermanSep 11, 2019
Green Hell delivers a unique experience in the survival genre and adds a strong storyline on top. The impressive sound design immerses players in the rainforest through soft sounds and terrifying predators.

Fit For a King

PC
8.00
Austin SutherSep 05, 2019
Although Fit For a King is a brief adventure, you'll find no shortage of laughs. Exploring for treasure chests and collecting taxes has never been so fun. Fit for a King has a degree of freedom that many games don't allow, limited only by its small game world.

Creature in the Well

Switch
5.50
Samuel GuglielmoSep 05, 2019
While it has a fantastic high level concept, Creature in the Well quickly realizes it has no idea what to actually do with it and becomes a repetitive slog before long.

Decay of Logos

PS4
3.00
William WorrallSep 04, 2019
Decay of Logos has a few good ideas which are completely swamped in the terrible performance, glitches and bad design which make up the rest of the game. Despite trying to distance itself from the label of a Souls-Like it cannot help but draw comparisons to the much better series, a comparison which only throws its flaws into sharp focus.

Blair Witch

Xbox One
8.50
William WorrallSep 04, 2019
Blair Witch is an instant classic in terms of a horror game. It pulls off tension-building, forces the player to creep themselves out and does it all with a minimum of jump scares. The story alone is a reason to play. If you're brave enough.

Hunt: Showdown

PC
7.00
Ron WelchSep 02, 2019
Hunt: Showdown is a unique mix of battle royale and hardcore survival games. The learning curve is incredibly steep and permadeath is fairly punishing. However, the core gameplay has that spark of horror tension and the art design excels in every aspect.

Metro Exodus: The Two Colonels

Xbox One
7.00
Anson ChanSep 02, 2019
The DLC has a story to tell and it tells that story with no lollygagging involved. You could probably take out all the combat sections and the DLC would be just as effective at conveying the tragedy of Colonel Khlebnikov. The inverse is not true by any means though. Without the story or the excellent world design, there’s not much of a reason to play the DLC. Thankfully, you can’t have one without the other, culminating in an experience best described as not great, but not terrible.

Children of Morta

PC
9.00
Robert N. AdamsSep 02, 2019
Children of Morta serves as a fine ARPG for newbies and veterans alike. A beautiful world brought alive by beautiful pixel art, catchy music, and incredibly compelling gameplay that holds the whole package together.

Catherine: Full Body

PS4
8.50
Robert ScarpinitoAug 30, 2019
Catherine: Full Body takes the 2011 cult classic to the next level. With new story elements, remixed stages, and compelling characters, this title is sure to satisfy old fans and newcomers alike.

Exodemon

PC
4.00
Austin SutherAug 28, 2019
Exodemon fails to deliver fun gunplay or exciting level design. It has minimal music, uninspired weapons, and little story to speak of. Exodemon feels like a boring shooter that cannot emulate what makes 90s shooters so fun.

The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan

PS4
8.50
Andrew StretchAug 28, 2019
Man of Medan takes players through an epic choose your own horror adventure. Whether you're a fan of horror, or a fan of having a friend around to hide behind Man of Medan is an incredibly fun game. Supermassive's approach to divergent story and story secrets rewards players for pushing themselves to experience the Man of Medan in a number of ways.

Knights and Bikes

PS4
6.50
Ron WelchAug 27, 2019
Knights and Bikes is a solid experience for those who are young or young at heart. The characterization and art are top-notch. While the puzzling is rather thin, the combat is hectic and exciting. Overall, Knights and Bikes focuses on its charming cast and telling a story for the whole family.

Ancestors: the Humankind Odyssey

PC
8.50
Max MoellerAug 26, 2019
Ancestors is a fantastic translation of evolutionary concepts into a game. It presents a fully-realized world that forces you to pay attention to every last detail if you want to survive.

Control

PS4
9.00
Samuel GuglielmoAug 26, 2019
Control combines a fantastically weird setting with fast paced combat, awesome exploration, and impressively destructible environments. It's an absolute gem of a game. Just make sure you get it on PC or an upgraded console.

London Detective Mysteria

PC
7.50
Courtney EhrenhoflerAug 23, 2019
London Detective Mysteria is a fun little diversion for those who enjoy Victorian-era literature and the heroes and heroines that come from it, but it fails to establish itself as anything new in the genre and loses focus on the bigger mystery.

Mable & The Wood

PC
6.00
Robert ScarpinitoAug 23, 2019
Mable and The Wood has a great idea at its core, and in some cases, it provides a compelling enough Metroidvania experience. Unfortunately, weak implementation of choice-based progression, along with some irksome bugs, hamper what could otherwise have been a great game.

ONINAKI

PS4
5.50
William WorrallAug 21, 2019
Overall, Oninaki does have something to offer. If you can get past the opening hours and their dull start then you’ll find a pretty deep experience mechanically. Excessive padding brings the game up to a good 30+ hours, but less is more. A less lengthy amount of playtime would have worked in Oninaki‘s favor. While some may find it worth the effort, no one will blame a player for stopping at the first hurdle. The opening hours of gameplay are important, as are the final few. Great moments in the middle does nothing when sandwiched between bad pacing and poor balancing.

Remnant: From the Ashes

PC
7.50
Austin SutherAug 20, 2019
Remnant: From the Ashes boasts a beautifully realized world with awesome enemy design and top-notch gunplay. There's plenty of customization and incentive to go back for more. Unfortunately, the experience is ruined a bit by repetitive boss battles and lacking social features.

Vicious Circle

PC
4.00
Andrew StretchAug 16, 2019
Vicious Circle at its core has a really great concept. In execution though what was delivered was an unbalanced feature-lite multiplayer experience that will likely struggle to keep players returning.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance - A Woman's Lot

PC
7.50
Richard CostaAug 16, 2019
A Woman's Lot is a rewarding coda for Kingdom Come: Deliverance that might make you itch for a new playthrough. It features two tense questlines where you'll survive the Sack of Skalitz as Henry's love interest Theresa, and help the devout nurse Johanka in her complex theological conundrum.

Gravity Ghost: Deluxe Edition

PS4
8.50
Samuel GuglielmoAug 15, 2019
If you’re looking for a relaxing platformer with a bittersweet story, then look no further than Gravity Ghost: Deluxe Edition. A beautiful game that I really lost myself in, I couldn’t help but come away charmed by the experience. Even if the puzzles don’t quite feel that good, this is one ghost who’s gravity should pull you in.
