7 / 10.0 - Cattails
Dec 4, 2018

Cattails doesn't quite reach the heights of the titans it attempts to mimic. Despite its flaws and shortcomings, it remains a compelling enough adventure survival simulator - one that cat lovers in particular will find plenty of joy playing.

7 / 10.0 - Shu
Nov 17, 2016

Shu is great in its presentation, but flalters with its raw mechanics. It provides a solid, albeit simple platforming experience.

9 / 10.0 - Battlefield 1
Oct 27, 2016

World War I is hard material to tackle, but DICE have managed to do it respectably enough. Battlefield 1’s campaign is memorable, and it’s multiplayer, brutal. The latter doesn’t necessarily provide a whole new experience, but a coat of paint from The Great War certainly makes the series feel nice and fresh again.

Whether you’re new to the series, or a returning veteran, there is almost no excuse to not pick up BioShock: The Collection. It contains some of the very best games ever made in the past decade, and they’re all still well worth playing today.

6.5 / 10.0 - Filthy Lucre
Sep 21, 2016

Filthy Lucre is far from being perfect, but it still manages to be a fun game. If you can overlook its flaws, such as poor AI or odd design choices, you’ll find some enjoyment, particularly if you’re a fan of the stealth genre.

8 / 10.0 - System Crash
Aug 1, 2016

System Crash’s campaign is compelling, as are the actual card game’s mechanics. It's smart and satisfying - but having multiplayer functionality present would have catapulted it to the upper echelons of digital card gaming.

A game about conducting heists from behind a pc screen? It sure sounds mundane and complicated. Blendo Games though, have somehow managed to pull it off with ease in Quadrilateral Cowboy. They’ve put together a highly polished, surprisingly enjoyable product - one which every gamer should at least consider playing at some point.

9 / 10.0 - Overwatch
May 27, 2016

Blizzard have set a new example for the FPS genre that others will need to follow. Overwatch reaches near perfection with its polish and charm. It's fun, addictive, and will keep players hooked for a good, long time.

7.5 / 10.0 - Battleborn
May 11, 2016

Battleborn is by no means a perfect game. Underneath its flaws however, there is a satisfying and fun character-driven shooter to be found.

‘What We Deserve’ is a solid ending to The Walking Dead: Michonne saga. Though it’s far from perfect, it does tie up the series nicely with a satisfying conclusion.

Michonne as a character and excellent action sequences keep this second episode together, though barely. Hopefully Telltale have something much bigger and better planned for the conclusion of this miniseries.

8.5 / 10.0 - TrackMania Turbo
Mar 30, 2016

TrackMania Turbo is damn near perfect for an arcade racer. Its difficulty and progression system may chase away some, but those who stick around for the long run are in for some truly rewarding speeding.

Assault Android Cactus is a solid, memorable twin stick shooter. It has mechanics in place that make it accessible and fun for all. Its visuals and story unfortunately though, leave a lot to be desired.

Michonne is a fascinating character, and one that makes for some interesting storytelling. Unfortunately, the first episode of her tale loses steam after the first few minutes, and boils down into something that feels like it's been done before.

On the surface, it appears to be a charming, survival title. That's merely a ruse, as The Flame in the Flood is ruthless in difficulty, at least for the first few hours. Overall, it's a great, enjoyable game, though the experience can wear a little thin after a while.

A great package packed with modern-day Resident Evil nostalgia. The original horror elements in the franchise stand as tall today as they did back then, but some of both game's mechanics may annoy newcomers.

Both pros and beginners will find enjoyment in Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo, though the latter will need to invest a lot of time into it before the driving becomes somewhat doable. Shoddy visuals, audio, and multiplayer hamper what is an otherwise solid rally package.

6.5 / 10.0 - Tetris Ultimate
Jan 11, 2016

Though there are some annoyances, Tetris Ultimate preserves the core gameplay that has kept people hooked for three decades. Unfortunately, it does very little to differentiate itself from the norm.

Its mere existence proves that the RTS genre, despite the flood of MOBAs in recent years, is very much alive and well. It's clear that Blizzard have poured every resource at their disposal into making the definitive StarCraft II experience. The result is something truly special. Legacy of the Void should not be missed.
