This is not the best Walking Dead adventure out there, but fans of the developer’s previous work with the franchise will not be disappointed.

5 / 10.0 - Shadwen
May 24, 2016

Shadwen boasts some cool mechanics and can even be entertaining at times, but it never truly feels like a cohesively good game as a whole. The repetitiveness of the levels, clunky physics and sub par story only hinder what could have been a great entry into the stealth genre.

Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure is a breath of fresh air among today’s online-only titles. Besides being an awesome throwback to the golden age of couch gaming, its wacky characters and bizarre humor mix well with the pick-up-and-play controls and great level design. The novelty might wear off too soon, but you should definitely give it a go if you’re yearning to share some laughs with your friends

Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair won't win any prestigious awards, but it still manages to be a fun little cult offering that will please those looking to simply have a good time. If you don't expect anything serious or realistic to come out of it, you'll definitely enjoy blasting away at your enemies while listening to some of the silliest dialogue ever put on a game

Give No Shelter is a fantastic episode that more than makes up for the series’ disappointing premiere and sets things up nicely for next month’s finale. It’s got a great opening section, some of the most intense scenes ever delivered by Telltale, and a bunch of twists and turns to keep things interesting. If you’ve played the first episode and you’re not sure about wanting to give the series a second chance, I implore you to try this one and see for yourself why Telltale is one of the best storytellers in the business

This 4-hour ride through a quirky Florida town is definitely amusing and packed with weird characters to interact with, but the story is nothing to write home about and the gameplay often isn’t up to par with what players expect nowadays. If you loved the Telltale licensed adventures and are yearning for another episodic treat, you might as well give this one a go, but keep in mind that such level of polish is nowhere to be found here

Assault Android Cactus is a fun twin-stick shooter with great mechanics and tons of replayability. Its minor audio and trophy issues can't mask the undeniable charm of its colorful cast of characters, making this a tremendously enjoyable game, be it playing solo or co-op

7.5 / 10.0 - Screencheat
Mar 4, 2016

Screencheat is a clever shooter, but one that ultimately lacks depth or longevity. However, the sheer amount of fun to be had with friends is undeniable, and that aspect alone makes the game worth trying for those yearning for their local multiplayer fixes

6 / 10.0 - Gunscape
Mar 2, 2016

Gunscape feels like wasted potential. It provides players with a neat creation tool but doesn't entice them to play around with it or try other people's creations. The awful plot and boring guns don't help, either, and the game will most certainly have a very short lifespan if the community loses interest so quickly

The Walking Dead: Michonne's premiere episode feels like a mixed bag. It's got fantastic action sequences and a great plot lying underneath all the uninteresting characters, lack of decisions and lackluster ending. If you're a fan of Telltale's previous work with the license, you should probably still give this one a go, but if you're new to this universe, there are much better places to start

8.5 / 10.0 - Klaus
Feb 11, 2016

Klaus is a delightful platformer stuffed with thought-provoking dialogue and ingenious level design. Its difficulty curve and control options could have used some adjustment, but this is an overall remarkable title with plenty to offer to those looking for a fresh take on the genre

8.5 / 10.0 - Not a Hero
Feb 5, 2016

Not a Hero is an exceptionally well done shooter made a whole lot better by its inviting art style, generous amounts of gore and non-linear levels. It could have used some better writing, particularly in the jokes, but overall it's a game that never overstays its welcome and provides some good hours of fun

AIPD – Artificial Intelligence Police Department brings little novelty to the genre, but it does cement itself as a solid contender in the sea of twin-stick shooters. Its limited customization options and repetitive game modes can occasionally get in the way, but its fantastic visuals and pulsating gameplay ensure that every wave of enemies is a hell of a lot of fun to blast to pieces

8 / 10.0 - Squirbs
Jan 15, 2016

Squirbs may not be the brightest or most polished platformer out there, but it's still a lot of fun to play. Figuring out the solution to each devious stage is a blast, and once you complete even a single one, you'll undoubtedly have a smile on your face

Shantae: Risky's Revenge – Director's Cut is an overall solid game with charming gameplay and wonderful presentation values. It's hindered by its somewhat repetitive design, cumbersome map system and lack of innovation or surprises, but it still manages to offer a good time for anyone looking to delve into the newest Metroidvania release.

Persona 4: Dancing All Night is a fantastic rhythm game combining charming characters and tremendously catchy tunes. Its lengthy story mode, engaging gameplay and wealth of options secure its place among the genre’s best and offer one of the most original takes on the franchise to date

7 / 10.0 - Bedlam
Nov 12, 2015

If it were for its gameplay alone, Bedlam would probably be regarded as a lacking first-person shooter that would have been better if it were released 30 years ago, but when you throw in its surprisingly good storytelling and amazing sense of atmosphere, it becomes an adventure worth embarking upon

7 / 10.0 - Thief Town
Oct 12, 2015

Thief Town succeeds in providing a fun couch experience, but there's still tons of untapped potential. It could do with some additional modes, levels and items, but in its current state it ends up being just a simple party game with limited appeal

The Talos Principle is a great thought-provoking puzzler which deals with the existential questions of mankind while delivering an enjoyable and satisfying adventure. It may get cumbersome and tedious at times, but it's worth it just for being unlike anything else out there

8 / 10.0 - Armello
Sep 10, 2015

Armello is a fun and addicting mesh of genres that never quite reaches greatness due to some quirky balance issues and multiplayer dilemmas, but what's on offer here should please anyone looking to spend some quality time on a modern-day board game.
