7 / 10 - FIFA 14
Oct 11, 2013

FIFA 14 is the reassuring central-defensive midfielder of the series. Dependable, rather than revelatory. Physical, tenacious and tight on space. It does the job without fuss, but also lacks flair.

A criminally short opening chapter that nonetheless offers a glimpse of Rapture at its opulent heights. The noir intentions are dispensed too soon, so the Booker/Elizabeth relationship and familiar combat have to see Burial at Sea through to its disturbing, perplexing climax.

The locations and themes in Deadfall Adventures are its stars, but neither the combat nor the puzzles really stand out and the pulp tone goes missing whenever most of the cast speak. A forgettable, Boy's Own jaunt through well-thumbed pages of adventure fiction.

Like its winsome protagonist, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is fixated on pursuing the riches of high-seas piracy and seems reluctant to be drawn into convoluted Templar plots. The most self-aware Assassin's Creed title to date, and one that makes the most of some aging mechanics.

2 / 10 - X Rebirth
Nov 27, 2013

X Rebirth is the most disappointing PC title of 2013. A heartbreaking, gut-churning mess.

8 / 10 - SteamWorld Dig
Dec 11, 2013

For a game about dandy robot businessmen trying to fleece a robo-miner of his hard-earned gains, it's surprisingly charismatic. A laid-back Dig Dug with a gentle scattering of Metroid.

3 / 10 - Speedball 2 HD
Dec 17, 2013

Speedball 2 HD plays worse, looks worse and is far, far easier than the Amiga version from almost 23 years ago.

It's far too early to crown this season as a successful follow-up to Telltale's first foray with The Walking Dead, but there are enough threads of character intrigue to suggest that Clementine and her new crew have a promising (that is to say, heartbreaking and terrible) future.

Freedom Cry is pretty much another four or five hours of Black Flag, but this time in the capable shoes of Adéwalé. A self-contained tale about the human catastrophe of slavery is an abrupt turn from the original's happy-go-lucky plundering style, but the game's mechanics adapt relatively well.

8 / 10 - The Banner Saga
Jan 14, 2014

Hardship and displacement in a Nordic-inspired world make for a splendid, and splendid looking, RPG.
