7 / 10.0 - Not a Hero
Feb 2, 2016

The explosion-happy, pixel-art world of Not a Hero can be fun for short bursts. However, its inability to take anything seriously—paired with an intense objective system—leaves it somewhere in the middle.

Feb 22, 2016

Far Cry Primal really wants you to know that there are tons of things you can do in its prehistoric, open world. Unfortunately, you may not want to do any of them.

7 / 10.0 - TrackMania Turbo
Mar 23, 2016

For me, TrackMania Turbo just didn't earn the checkered flag. If you love time-trials, however, this is the racing game you've been waiting for.
