Featuring a stunning low-poly art style, a wonderfully well-integrated soundtrack, an ingeniously simple control scheme, an interesting transformation mechanic, and impressively designed temples, AER has a lot going for it. It's unfortunate that the experience is as short as it is and there is no way to keep track of what's been seen. A few more environmental puzzles and a simple journal would fix my only complaints about this exploration-heavy title.

Sporting more interesting mechanics than you can shake an oversized sword at, Battle Chasers has a little bit of everything from classic turn-based JRPGs for everyone. Even though it loses the wow factor on subsequent runs, the dungeon delving has a lot to offer and can hide some rather sneaky secrets. Not a bad title by any means, only a little repetitive, despite its efforts to be otherwise.

9.5 / 10.0 - N++
Oct 20, 2017

A must-have for any platforming fan. Nearly everything is perfect in this game. If the soundtrack was a bit more memorable and the game didn't stutter when a new song played, I'd give the game a 10 without question. But unfortunately, I can't look past all the deaths this glitch caused me or how bored I was by the new list of songs.

Don't bother unless you enjoy playing the same mission over and over again with no guarantee of any sort of pay off. The (very) few good things this game has going for it are completely dwarfed by the poorly implemented or flat out reprehensible systems that the entire experience hinges on.

9.5 / 10.0 - Cuphead
Oct 16, 2017

Although I speak very highly of Cuphead, I do think the game can be a little too unforgiving in enemy attack patterns and their ability to hit from offscreen without much warning. Regardless, the game's tight controls, fun boss fights, and pleasing aesthetic make it a must have.

7.5 / 10.0 - Tricky Towers
Oct 15, 2017

It makes for a decent puzzle title with an interesting concept that is shackled by an issue that ruins the experience by making easy moves difficult and difficult moves impossible.

8 / 10.0 - Iron Crypticle
Oct 5, 2017

Iron Crypticle is arcade shoot ‘em up done right with decent twin stick gameplay that changes up often enough to keep the player engaged for many runs. With the addition of powerful bosses, impressive power ups, diverse enemies, and an interesting main concept, this title is quite a hidden gem.

5 / 10.0 - Circuit Breakers
Sep 25, 2017

This one's easy. Do you like shooting robots? Could you play a game where you continuously shoot robots with no other clear goal? If the answer is yes, then this may be for you. If you require something deeper then you may want to pass on this one.

6 / 10.0 - Planet of the Eyes
Sep 22, 2017

This title is pretty and has decent platforming despite not pulling the player in or offering challenging puzzles. Simply put, it does as much right as it does wrong. It's short, but it doesn't overstay its welcome due to that. It's too easy, but it makes for a nice quick completion when you've got some extra time. Might not be a bad idea to wait for a sale and complete it in only a little bit more time than it takes to download.

I would argue that Eventide 2 is one of, if not, the best Artifex Mundi games available on Xbox at this point. I truly hope that future titles share Eventide 2's trend of improving on previous games. Honestly though, you'll have to have played the previous titles to appreciate the changes this title has made.
