6.8 / 10.0 - Double Kick Heroes
Sep 16, 2020

Double Kick Heroes really aims for a very specific niche of the rhythm game market. For players who love heavy metal and retro difficulty settings, this is a great opportunity to rock out to some new tracks and a fun story, then maybe create some zombie-slaying mayhem of their own to their favorite Ozzy or Motörhead track.

Where Flight Simulator shines, is in its ability to be both an inexpensive training tool for actual pilots, an accessible introduction to aviation for new people, and also a place where the hardcore can live out their airline pilot dreams.

6 / 10.0 - Filament
May 28, 2020

For hardcore puzzle fans and Mensa members, Filament is a treat. It makes zero concessions to players but it is also completely fair in puzzle design.

With its focus on a sort of pseudo-19th-Century exploration and adventure, Curious Expedition definitely brings a different take to the roguelike genre than most other games. How enjoyable it feels may come down to how much players enjoy the roguelike genre in general.

7.4 / 10.0 - WRC 8
Nov 15, 2019

Mastering the tracks at higher difficulties may become repetitive, and for players not interested in the eWRC challenge, the game may lack enough multiplayer aspects to hold interest for a long haul. However, it’s also incredibly rewarding to finally master a course, and the feeling of racing along narrow lanes at high speed is unmatched.

Fans of puzzle games looking for a new challenge may find something to enjoy here. Casual puzzlers will probably be better served to pass on this one or wait for its inevitable inclusion in a future indie bundle.

The Air Conflicts Collection offers a good value for Switch owners looking for some good World War II dogfight action with a solid story, and who don’t own any kind of gaming PC.

It’s hard to judge Warplanes too harshly as a bargain-priced flight game on the Switch. There are at least 5-6 hours of fun to be had with the game, and despite the repetition, the bite-sized missions (which rarely last more than five to ten minutes) make for a pleasant diversion over short play sessions.

There’s nothing horribly wrong with the gameplay or the mechanics. It’s just kind of generic, an overgrown mobile game that can’t distinguish itself from the pack.

YIIK does something different, taking some of the best memories of classic games, folding it in with brilliant writing, and creating one of the most evocative RPGs I’ve ever played that didn’t have “Final” in the title. For fans of the genre, great writing, or supernatural mystery, this game should be immediately on a lot of 2019 Must Play lists.

As a franchise reboot, Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don’t Dry isn’t bad, but it feels like a lot of wasted opportunities.

8 / 10.0 - The Crew 2
Sep 23, 2018

It may not deliver the most polished racing experience, or the most nuanced driving model, but where else is a player going to experience a race that goes from sports cars to powerboats to off-road rally cars in a single run?

Gamers who enjoy a good fantasy story and a well-constructed world will find a lot to enjoy in Ash of Gods: Redemption. Likewise, fans of tactical, turn-based squad combat. Whether that’s sufficient motivation to overcome poor documentation and meandering plots is another question.

9.2 / 10.0 - Light Fall

Despite the dark visuals of the game, the future looks bright for both Light Fall and Bishop Games.

8 / 10.0 - Closers
Mar 15, 2018

As a Free-To-Play game, Closers is surprisingly generous to players. Costumes, an elite status buff which confers a daily reward of crafting materials and a fatigue reduction potion, some additional inventory slots, extra crafting materials, and temporary buffs are all purchasable from the store for real money; but are also given away daily from the online store.

What FTSOC offers, principally, is perhaps the best video game look at the China-Burma-India theatre ever done. That’s a low bar to clear, admittedly, but one that should be appreciated by fans of aviation games with access to either an Xbox One or a decent gaming PC.

6.4 / 10.0 - Heliborne

Players preferring heavier realism in their simulated helicopters may want to give this game a pass, and stick to combat helicopter offerings in the DCS family instead.

7.2 / 10.0 - Auto Age: Standoff
Sep 24, 2017

Auto Age: Standoff does an excellent job of fusing retro art and music with a modern take on the vehicle brawler game. While a lacking single-player element limits its appeal, the inclusion of bots and local split-screen help ensure that the game has legs beyond the risk of empty online servers.
