What could have been is hinted at but ultimately ends before it begins.

4.5 / 5.0 - My Friend Pedro
Jul 20, 2019

It's a pretty decent price for the fun that is to be had. In the end… you are just one man and his banana… and maybe that's all you really need.

4.3 / 5.0 - Conan Unconquered
Jul 20, 2019

Overall… it's fun, but does get frustrating on the later levels… the fact you can't save your game to try a configuration and then reload if it didn't quite work simply adds to that frustration. At the current price tag I think it might be a little much… but there is a bit of value in the unlockable comic pages and the ability to play through as a couple of other characters is nice. Perhaps wait for a sale unless you happen to really like tower defense style gaming.

4.5 / 5.0 - The Sinking City
Jun 27, 2019

It's great to finally have a game that seems to put you right in the middle of one of H. P. Lovecraft's worlds… that sense of strangeness that lies over everything like a fog that draws you in and embraces you in the oddness of it all is quite compelling. Best played at night with the lights off to truly become immersed in the world of The Sinking City.

A focus shift from the main character to an important supporting character helps to flesh out the world and story whilst giving the player a change of pace.

4.5 / 5.0 - American Fugitive
Jun 13, 2019

Like a spiritual successor to GTA2 American Fugitive will see you running afoul of the law with a touch of Dukes of Hazard thrown in.

4.5 / 5.0 - Observation
Jun 4, 2019

Overall it’s a fresh change from the standard jump scare, or shooter mechanic that we have so much of today. It’s a compelling story and one worth putting some time into puzzle solving to uncover.

Sniper Elite V2 gets a remaster but the changes might be as easy to spot as a sniper in a ghillie suit.

3.7 / 5.0 - Treasure Stack
Apr 1, 2019

Overall it’s quite a bit of fun and the lure to unlock the next item or character is there… but it also ends up being very repetitive very quickly.

A game that might have had retro appeal, had it been a game released about 10 or 20 years ago. As a modern release it seems far too dated to compete with similar titles.

4.6 / 5.0 - Fallout 76
Dec 1, 2018

The detail that Bethesda have put into this world is nothing short of impressive! You can get hung up on what the game isn't… but there is so much that it is. This is a beautifully realised (and it is quite stunning visually) post apocalyptic role playing game that happens to be online and can be played with other people. If you are more of a single player gamer like me, don't let the online nature of Fallout 76 put you off… it's eminently playable as a single player experience. If you are put off by the issues mentioned at the start then maybe steer clear (or at least wait to see if patches address your concerns), otherwise I'd say grab the Deathclaw by the horns and jump in (but maybe wait till you have powerarmour to do that.).

A linear game with pseudo interaction reminiscent of Return to Zork.
