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.

It retreads the same ground of the prior games' fetch-quest-driven, backtracking-filled action-adventuring.

It has just enough bells and whistles to suck you into its world, but not enough to compel your immersion.

Its characters already lacked personality, and the 3D makeover is mostly successful at bringing that deficiency into sharper relief.

Moving Out is a fast-paced, arcade-style co-op that leans into carefree, chaotic, over-the-top gameplay.

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

The game improves upon its predecessor, and finds new ways to demonstrate their shared eco-friendly themes.
