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.

The game is limited by the static nature of its mission-based structure and the protagonist's severe lack of motivation.

With their latest, Dan Marshall and Ben Ward successfully extend their lovingly parodic style to a much broader range of genres.

The game does a fine job of narratively showing the way in which a person can be broken down and made to believe anything.

It can't step out of the silhouette of its most brilliant predecessor, Portal.

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