Aztech Forgotten Gods has more than its share of frustrations with its camera and combat, but the unique setting and memorable characters can still make it an enjoyable adventure.

10 / 10.0 - Persona 5
Mar 29, 2017

It's not a huge departure from the themes and gameplay of the last two Persona games, but there are enough successful tweaks to the formula that Persona 5 feels both familiar and wonderfully new.

While previous attempts to simulate city life were certainly fun, City Living surpasses them all by making the new locale of San Myshuno feel alive, bustling, and connected.

Though it was received well critically the first time around and became a cult favorite, VC largely flew under the radar upon its initial release. I’m glad it’s getting another chance to shine a generation later.

Syndicate is a step in the right direction for the series. It's not as innovative as it could be, but it's an entertaining adventure worthy of the name Assassin's Creed. Buy it.

It's not often that I stare at a game's menu screen for a few moments just because it looks so good. That's exactly what I caught myself doing the first time I loaded up Civilization: Beyond Earth with the Rising Tide expansion installed.

9.5 / 10.0 - Broken Age
Apr 27, 2015

There's not much to dislike, especially for die-hard fans of the genre. Double Fine promised a classic point-and-click title when it launched its crowd-funding campaign three long years ago, but the developer didn't just rely on nostalgia. Instead, it made a game that captures the humor of the games Tim Schafer worked on at LucasArts while creating a modern aesthetic that totally suits the story.

With so much more, well, work to do, the expansion bolsters a core game that was a bit sparse at launch. At the same time, it's hindered by the limitations of The Sims 4, which make it very hard to balance careers, family, and fun.

Story of Seasons, for all intents and purposes, is Harvest Moon without the title, and continues the series' tradition of making the mundane into compelling gameplay.

5.5 / 10.0 - The Order: 1886
Mar 2, 2015

Though impressive in some ways, The Order: 1886 fails miserably in its most important goal of keeping the player entertained for any significant length of time.

8 / 10.0 - Costume Quest 2

Halloween may be over, but you should take the chance to go trick-or-treating once again with Costume Quest 2.

Civilization: Beyond Earth sets itself apart from the previous games in the series in ways big and small, and you would be mistaken to dismiss this entry in the strategy franchise as "Civ V in space." Beyond Earth is an excellent standalone experience that can be enjoyed regardless of your history with the series—though having some understanding of how the turn-based strategy gameplay works is certainly an asset. After 300 hours of Civ V, the time has come to move on; I've left Earth and headed into space, and I think I will be there for thousands more turns to come.
