Aaron Riccio's Reviews

Aaron Riccio's been arguing over the merits of video games since discovering the merits of 1990's Miracle Piano Teaching System straight through to recent kerfluffles over the value of so-called walking simulators. His sweet spot is the intersection between puzzle, action, and adventure games, though he realistically tries to play just about everything, and is an ardent supporter of any artists attempting to break new ground.

There are plenty of military engagements in Breakpoint, but none of them are particularly engaging.

The game is boorish, infantile, and violent, and, in refusing to take any sort of consistent stand, is wildly off the mark.

Without a sense of feedback or progress, the rambling, leisurely narrative of Telling Lies comes across as unfocused.

Our ancestors didn't have it easy, and that's the for-better-and-worse message reverberating through every interaction in the game.

Even when the game isn't actively shooting itself in the foot, it never entirely succeeds.

The more often you get stuck with the same items and abilities, the more redundant and shallow the game feels.

The similarities between SolSeraph and ActRaiser are unmistakable, but it's a joyless facsimile that lacks a single spark of innovation.

This is a rare adventure game in which the journey is actually more of a reward than the destination.
