Perry Ruhland's Reviews

Aspiring author. Part time horrible procrastinator. FPS connoisseur. Tactical games journalist. Professional hater of fun. No matter what role Perry's currently playing, it's a safe bet to assume that he's doing it fairly poorly - but still managing to turn it into some sort of article.

5 / 10.0 - Mr. Shifty
May 9, 2017

Bland, inoffensive, and instantly forgettable - Mr. Shifty does nothing a lot wrong, but it does nothing a lot right either.

7 / 10.0 - The Sexy Brutale
Apr 10, 2017

The Sexy Brutale is an occasionally muddled sci-fi story with just enough macabre charm and attention to detail to make it stand out.

With a horrifically conflicting relationship between mechanics and narrative, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk is a great example of two great tastes that don't taste great together.

7 / 10.0 - Dishonored 2
Jan 5, 2017

Dishonored 2 is a functional follow-up to a classic that is mired by the addition of all sorts of unnecessary elements.

Duke Nukem: World Tour may lack some of the expansions of the Megaton Edition, but the fresh coat of paint and bonus episode make it the definitive Duke experience.

Daily Chthonicle: Editor's Edition is a game with a good idea and a lot of heart poured into it, but is crippled by substandard at best mechanics.

7 / 10.0 - Clustertruck
Sep 27, 2016

While Clustertruck may hit some speed bumps here and there, there's nothing quite like it when it cuts loose.

2.5 / 10.0 - Virginia
Sep 22, 2016

An interesting idea that has flashes of brilliance, but is hampered by baffling and counterintuitive design decisions.

A mechanically solid game with some fantastic level design that sadly delivers a narrative that is ho-hum at best.

8.5 / 10.0 - Mother Russia Bleeds
Sep 5, 2016

An exercise in brilliant simplicity, Mother Russia Bleeds takes you on a thrilling and depraved ride through the USSR.

What we’ve got here with Little King’s Story is a brilliant game ported to Steam with all the finesse and grace of a runaway monster truck. It’s good to be the king, just not on this platform.

VA-11 Hall-A is a stunning adventure that manages to deliver one of gaming's greatest stories.

Dead Island Retro Revenge is not quite a runner, not quite a beat em up, and not quite a good game.

6 / 10.0 - OmniBus
May 26, 2016

Omnibus is an enjoyable game with a fun premise, but the novel concept is brought down by wonky physics.

9 / 10.0 - Doom
May 17, 2016

Not even tacked-on multiplayer or a weak level editor can stop DOOM from being a total blast from start to finish.

Apr 25, 2016

Dark Souls III isn't revolutionary, but it's taken me on a ride I won't be forgetting anytime soon.

Apr 11, 2016

Deadbolt isn't the fairest game on the market, but it always keeps you coming back for more.

A thoroughly enjoyable survival horror title that can provide good scares and a great atmosphere.

2.5 / 10.0 - Reagan Gorbachev

Reagan Gorbachev is a deeply flawed game with nothing but a creative premise going for it.

9 / 10.0 - SUPERHOT
Feb 25, 2016

A genius shooter close to rivaling legends, sadly cut down by its minuscule running time.
