Charming visuals, puzzle solving, medieval fantasy, there's literally nothing else you need in your life. I had a few frustrations here and there, but all in all TSIOQUE felt so worth my time; grab it for a rainy day, curl up on the sofa and prepare for a game best experienced first hand.
The game encapsulates the frustration and confusion that I have often heard Kafka's work draws upon. Unfortunately, these things work about as well in a videogame as a dollop of jam does in a classic novel. I'd avoid unless you really like the author.
One of those games that can be appreciated regardless of how long it’s been around – Xanadu Next makes some brilliant use of videogame elements that we have all come to love, and although the player often lacks meaningful choice the game is never truly restrictive.
Alone with You is a game in the same way that a statuette is a doorstop – it works and it's interesting to look at, but it would be better off doing something else. This title's compelling writing is let down by its monotonous gameplay, and I'm just not willing to endure one to enjoy the other.
Blood and Wine held all the components to make a great final adventure, but failed to truly capitalise on any one of them. If you’re looking for a good final experience to cap off your monster hunting career, go finish Hearts of Stone again – this one’s rather underwhelming.
N.E.R.O. fails at generating an exciting or mentally challenging experience, but it really doesn't try to. This visually stunning title places a great emphasis on its narrative, which is both uplifting and devastating – you'll be thinking about this one for a long time afterwards.
Although fun for a little while, Blood Alloy lacks variety and fails to capture the player’s interests. At its best, it’s a fast paced run ‘n’ gunner that fails to explain itself; at its worst, it’s dull, buggy and makes use of cheap techniques to keep players torturing themselves.
