I'm glad Skyrim VR exists. I like seeing developers like Bethesda experiment with its fully featured triple-A games in VR, but Skyrim was not a game made for the platform and it shows

5.5 / 10.0 - Fe
Feb 19, 2018

Fe is neither a good platformer or a compelling puzzle experience, and its narrative inspires a disinterested shoulder shrug

5.8 / 10.0 - The Climb (VR)
May 3, 2016

The puzzle-like mechanics of scaling a wall are interesting, but using your neck as a controller is not

5.8 / 10.0 - Tiny Brains
Dec 6, 2013

Some clever puzzles showcase glimmers of smart design, but overall this is an unpolished adventure with moments of unnecessary frustration

5.9 / 10.0 - Shenmue III
Nov 22, 2019

Rejoining Ryo Hazuki's quest to avenge his father is exciting, but Shenmue 3 feels like a game that has ignored the innovation and progress of the last 20 years of video game development.

The video game adaptation of the popular show emulates the '80s aesthetic well, but the action is boring and the missions rarely push you to do more than move from point A to point B

The fighting and visuals of the Rangers (and Goldar) are decent, but the modes, unlockables, and incentives to keep playing are limited

6 / 10.0 - JUMP FORCE
Feb 15, 2019

Seeing characters from different franchises fight one another is exciting, but the overall presentation drags the whole experience down

Combat is a highlight and I laughed at some solid jokes, but exploring Ooo is a disappointment. The game is also plagued by technical problems

Controlling the turtles is fun, but the structure of the levels, missions, and bosses leave much to be desired

Hyrule Warriors is still a fun take on the Zelda universe, and the added content is worthwhile, but the technical issues make it hard to enjoy

6 / 10.0 - Gorogoa
Dec 12, 2017

Gorogoa has a great style, but the puzzles aren't satisfactory and its narrative is too ambiguous to leave behind any lasting impact

6 / 10.0 - Mario Party 10
Mar 16, 2015

Mario Party is good at creating an excuse for jovial arguments and competition with friends, but it continues to favor random chance over identifiable mechanics and tactics

The dancing is fun, as it always has been in Dance Central, but a number of discarded features and bugs make this the weakest game in the Dance Central series

Being the titular One-Punch Man is fun, but the rest of A Hero Nobody Knows' repetitious fighting/action game hybrid is lackluster.

6.3 / 10.0 - Kirby Star Allies
Mar 14, 2018

Star Allies represents the height of complacency for the Kirby franchise. It looks fine, plays fine, and barely flirts with anything new until the final boss fight

Save the Light is an especially good extension of the show, but it also functions as a decent, standalone RPG. Bugs and technical issues do hold the experience back significantly, unfortunately

6.5 / 10.0 - Indivisible
Oct 7, 2019

The core elements of Indivisible, like the story and the action, are interesting, but an overall lack of polish holds it back.

6.8 / 10.0 - Vane

Vane's atmosphere, music, world, and abstract story are affecting and strange, but the bugs and design lead to unnecessary frustration

6.8 / 10.0 - Dragon Ball Fusions
Dec 12, 2016

Fusions is an extra-goofy take on the world of Dragon Ball Z. It’s repetitive, and doesn’t have enough fusing, but has a strange charm
