4 / 10.0 - Godly Corp
Feb 18, 2019

A pale imitation of what inspired it, with unpredictable, unwieldy mechanics and the appearance of low production value.

Technically superior to the previous episode, and a strong second entry to the Diaz boys' saga.

7 / 10.0 - Just Cause 4
Jan 27, 2019

An 80s action movie in videogame form, some poor design choices don't stop this being a great sandbox to play in.

A beginning of a political and troubling story, with some “uncanny valley” animations and dark themes - Dontnod once again proving they are the top of this genre.

An interesting premise ultimately let down by poor execution and a lack of depth seen in most every other game in the genre.

5 / 10.0 - The Crew 2
Jul 28, 2018

A great driving game, a poor racing game. Has some technical issues involving controller support and their idea of multiplayer is somewhat unusual for this genre. A game I would happily spend more time with, but can't recommend highly in its current state.

A worthy (and free) successor to Life is Strange, and an intriguing teaser for the full sequel. Dontnod have improved on most accounts and look to draw in new fans with this prologue.

8 / 10.0 - Basingstoke
Jul 6, 2018

A stealth apocalypse game that stays takes some liberties with its setting, but brings it all together with strong mechanics that keep the player feeling vulnerable.

10 / 10.0 - FAR: Lone Sails
May 27, 2018

A puzzle platformer about a journey through an atmospheric wasteland, this game is a pinnacle of design brilliance.

3 / 10.0 - Wild West Online
May 17, 2018

The contentless husk of an MMO with uninteresting mechanics and a progression system with no rewards.

6.5 / 10.0 - Lake Ridden
May 10, 2018

A mystery game with some obtuse puzzles set in a beautiful world, worth looking at but be prepared to look up a guide for help with some of the puzzles.

A great game in its time, but one that has not aged well enough for it to stand up today with just updated visuals, especially when the cutscenes are omitted from that update.

9.5 / 10.0 - A Way Out
Apr 2, 2018

A game that takes what came before and redefines what is possible in co-operative storytelling, with a level of detail and polish far beyond what could be expected of a small team.

7 / 10.0 - Overgrowth
Feb 24, 2018

A visceral, brutal fighting game with no subtlety and no ambition for it. Long loading times and a poor camera don't detract massively from the animalistic fun Overgrowth provides.

A game with awful controls and sections that punish you with unpredictability and unreliability.

6 / 10.0 - The Automatician
Jan 21, 2018

A fun albeit short puzzle game betrayed by a confusing UI and some naive design choices, this isn't the Heath Robinson contraption game we were hoping it would be but it's nonetheless a good time.

5 / 10.0 - ReThink
Jan 2, 2018

A competent puzzle game that struggles to live up to its inspirations, but worth playing for fans of the genre nonetheless.

An improvement over the previous episodes and the last season, but still marred by technical problems with Telltale's aging engine.

5 / 10.0 - Moribund
Aug 19, 2017

Despite having an interesting central mechanic, a lack of online and a dull art style prevent this from being worth picking up over other games in the genre.

4.5 / 10.0 - City Climber
Jun 27, 2017

A frustrating, hard to control climbing game that feels ultimately shallow and impractically designed.
