1.5 / 5.0 - Super Seducer
Mar 7, 2018

It's going to be tempting for many of you to buy Super Seducer solely for the unintentional hilarity and maybe even write an “ironic” positive review for it based on that alone.

1.5 / 5.0 - Past Cure
Feb 27, 2018

Phantom 8 Studio shouldn't be discouraged from future attempts at delivering a cinematic experience of a game on par with triple-A output, because they still have some neat ideas and directions to take.

1.5 / 5.0 - Sakura Santa
Jan 4, 2016

There's a joke about two huge lumps of coal somewhere, but I refuse to offer Sakura Santa even that. Whatever cheap thrills this visual novel does include aren't worth sitting through incredibly flat writing and a lack of substance for. If you're looking for shiny anime mammaries, hit the rest of the internet instead.

Balan Wonderworld presents itself as having a world filled to the brim with imagination, ambition, whimsy, emotion and more.

2 / 5.0 - Dreambreak
Jul 23, 2016

Dreambreak may look pretty on the outside, but peeling back its pixelated style and impressive music reveals the dull story, flat characters, lack of substance and clunky gameplay within.

It’s clear that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan was aiming to be Left 4 Dead with Ninja Turtles, which does sound awesome, but it’s too focused with cramming in elements from other games as well, including the classic TMNT arcade brawlers and Arkham Asylum (down to the Detective Vision and stealth takedowns).

2 / 5.0 - Slain
Mar 30, 2016

Slain! gleefully comes off as the fever dream of a drunken teenage Iron Maiden fan, but unfortunately comes off as having been designed and programmed by a drunken teenage Iron Maiden fan as well.

2 / 5.0 - Bombshell
Jan 29, 2016

To put it bluntly, Bombshell is a dud.

JETT: The Far Shore has an impressive world with well-crafted lore, an intriguing story and eye-catching visuals. Unfortunately, you actually have to play through the game to experience any of it, and that ends up being a slow, plodding mess in more ways than one. Maybe those with more patience will enjoy the trip more, but everyone else can rightfully skip JETT: The Far Shore and just remain grounded with better games instead.

While Blacksad: Under the Skin shows a lot of promise in its story, world and a couple of neat gameplay mechanics that help put you right in Blacksad's shoes, it unfortunately suffers when it comes to the execution.

2.5 / 5.0 - Call of Cthulhu
Oct 30, 2018

Simply put, Call of Cthulhu is a game of wasted potential.

The first episode of Bear With Me still hints at a greater game to come, nicely setting a proper noir tone with some occasional creepy bits and a gleeful dose of snark throughout.

If you’re the type of person who’s more of a fan of Demetrios’ intentionally crass sense of humor, it may be worth a whirl, especially given its modest fee.

2.5 / 5.0 - Ninja Senki DX
Feb 22, 2016

Even for a game priced at five dollars, Ninja Senki DX is a letdown. What could have been another classic addition to the Tribute Games lineup instead ends up feeling like any generic retro-inspired indie game. It's far from terrible, but with so many other great games out there that do a much better reminding you of the NES days, there's no need to pick up one that does a sub-par job at it. Save your nostalgic urges for something with more meat on it.

2.5 / 5.0 - We Are the Dwarves
Mar 8, 2016

We Are The Dwarves shouldn't be completely dismissed, as it still at least has some neat ideas, controls nicely and looks pretty, but it comes across being so viciously unfair that it can only be recommended to the most hardcore fans of this genre. I was constantly finding myself too frustrated at the game to enjoy it, but to those willing to invest hours upon hours of seeing dwarves die over and over, knock yourself out.

2.5 / 5.0 - Reverse x Reverse
Jan 13, 2016

I really was hoping that Reverse x Reverse would turn out to be more than a merely average puzzle-platformer, but alas, it was not to be. Good level design and challenging gameplay sadly end up getting hindered by cheap shots, questionable controls and an underdeveloped premise. Code and Rithm may have been sent out on a quest to fix their game's technical issues, but it's a shame there was no one around to make sure the rest of it was as up to shape as possible as well.

Firegirl: Hack 'n Splash Rescue isn't necessarily a hot mess or a dumpster fire, but it is a rather unstable experiment made of promising elements that went up in smoke. The basic platforming and firefighting action is enjoyable enough, but the rest of the possible enjoyment is buried under a mound of RNG, bad procedurally-generated levels and a lack of good progression. Unless you're up for a big challenge, this is one title likely to leave you cold instead.

3 / 5.0 - The Ascent
Aug 11, 2021

The cyberpunk world of The Ascent seems dazzling on the surface, but much like your standard cyberpunk world, the grime underneath all of the neon and futuristic landscapes ends up revealing a hefty mess once you go exploring it.

3 / 5.0 - Stonefly
Jun 1, 2021

Stonefly had all of the right parts to create an impressive and cool-looking machine, but unlike its heroine, it wasn't able to fully assemble them properly.

Watch Dogs: Legion aims to be a truly ambitious entry in the series with its Legion system, but to paraphrase Ian Malcolm, the developers were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.
