Twelve Minutes is a good adventure game, but its puzzle design makes it feel— mature, cinematic presentation aside—like something of a relic. If it was released in 1995, you'd be ringing up the LucasArts hint line for help and getting scolded by your parents for running up a massive phone bill. But it has its charms, and the way the story is gradually peeled back, growing more disturbing with each loop, is effectively done. There's a huge amount of emotion, drama, and conflict squeezed into this tiny, dingy three-room apartment. But also a lot of frustration as you struggle to determine precisely the correct sequence of events to let you move the story forward and finally get some closure.

Riding and maintaining your bike is great-the boring world, dull missions, and overly serious tone, not so much.

A grimly beautiful collection of killer horror set-pieces, with some of the most memorably grotesque enemies in Resi history.

This is a fun, vibrant open world game with a great sense of humour. I just wish it felt nicer to play.

A fun, charming, and occasionally brilliant Yakuza game, let down by an overabundance of repetitive turn-based battles.
