As a franchise reboot, Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don’t Dry isn’t bad, but it feels like a lot of wasted opportunities. Larry fans and adventure gamers will certainly have fun (a lot more than they had with the mini-game filled spinoffs, at least), but this game seems unlikely to enter the pantheon of classic adventure games.
Light Fall represents a solid value proposition for platformer fans. For this reviewer, the minimalist art style has a lot of appeal, and the Shadow Core makes each level a nice blend of reflex-based jumping and careful puzzle solving based on available abilities.
The end result is a fun, but flawed, multiplayer helicopter combat game that’s at its best in cooperative combat missions. The limited scripted single-player missions, with their hyper-accurate AA fire short time limits, are best viewed as tune-ups for the real action.
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.
