Shovel Knight: King of Cards repeats some elements from previous entries, but it ultimately delivers one of the largest and more refined expansions in the series yet.

Felix the Reaper's protagonist is a joy to watch in motion, but every other part of this frustrating puzzle game fails to match that level of charm.

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is a return to form for the enjoyable platforming puzzler series, shifting back the perspective to 2.5D while delivering another stunning, satisfying experience.

8 / 10 - John Wick Hex
Oct 11, 2019

John Wick Hex successfully adapts the action from the film trilogy with a satisfyingly clever and fast-paced spin on turn-based combat.

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is a pronounced effort to recapture the magic of platformers, but its basic platforming and sharp difficulty spikes hold it back.

With more instalments to come in the Dark Pictures universe, there’s definitely space for improvement. And if the entire package is aiming to build on the surprising success of Until Dawn, it needs to make some adjustments.

5 / 10 - Blair Witch

Blair Witch too often lets trivial combat and simple puzzles get in the way of an engrossing and unsettling setting that captures the true spirit of the original film.

8 / 10.0 - Astral Chain
Aug 27, 2019

Astral Chain is one of Platinum Games' most complex and satisfying action games to date, with combat that's suitably fast but far more purposeful and careful in execution. Its gorgeous world and enticing premise are betrayed by an uninteresting story and characters, but there's little else to fault when you're teaming up with your legions and solving cases across different dimensions.

Although not all of its ideas mesh at times, Remnant: From the Ashes is still a satisfying action-adventure with punchy third-person shooting and fantastic bosses to overcome.

7 / 10 - Darq

Darq is an intelligent puzzle game with a delightfully dreary setting that is over far quicker than you want it to be.
