The ridiculous premise of Metal Wolf Chaos far outstrips what its gameplay can deliver, but this international release is still good for a laugh.
Pathologic 2 is the ultimate acquired taste - unforgiving, byzantine, and eye-opening.
The gameplay in Observation might be a bit of a slow boil, but it's unusual enough to be engaging in between its fascinating narrative moments.
Equal parts beautiful, repulsive, simplistic, and mature, A Plague Tale: Innocence is difficult to recommend but impossible to dismiss.
One Finger Death Punch 2 is a fun but lazy sequel that succeeds and fails entirely on the merits of its predecessor.
Tech Support: Error Unknown brings its own ideas to life in great detail, but it's missing the emotional core of Papers, Please.
The Textorcist mixes genres devilishly well, making for a cleverly challenging and engaging title.
Pikuniku is simple, silly, and ultimately kind of pointless. That being said, if you're looking for a short, feel-good experience, it might be up your alley.
This faux-remake does what it sets out to do eerily well. There's just the question of whether that goal was worth achieving.
GRIP: Combat Racing demands constant discipline from its audience while exhibiting little itself.
There's more to TSIOQUE than meets the eye, but not enough to make the pedestrian gameplay worthwhile.
Chasm's beautifully realized world can't distract from an ill-fitting gimmick that leaves its gameplay unbalanced and repetitive.
This third entry in the series, Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers, is at best woefully insubstantial and at worst torturously protracted.
If you can ignore its feeble storytelling and abysmal final act, Light Fall provides some quick, engaging platforming on an eye-popping canvas.
Mechanically, it's as inconsequential as ever, but Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 5: Same Stitch concludes the season in spectacular fashion, warranting a second look from those that dismissed it.
Fear Effect Sedna conclusively stomps out any life the series had left with its shallow, malformed gameplay and disjointed narrative.
Past Cure is an aggressively meaningless story broken up by astonishingly pedestrian gameplay.
The updates and alterations to Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology are inconsistently worthwhile, but the game as a whole is as memorable and elegantly designed as ever.
Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 4: What Ails You moves its plot along quickly and in some fascinating ways. It just can't save the entire season.
