Carefully tuned combat, a surprisingly tactical deck building system, and charming characters combine to make a fantastic adventure that's well worth picking up — and hard to put down.

6.2 / 10.0 - Bannermen
Feb 27, 2019

While Bannermen proves that it understands and can execute the basics of the modern RTS title, it fails to bring anything new to the table, feeling more akin to a game mod than a fully fledged original title.

An interesting concept unfortunately marred by incredibly frustrating design choices, poor mechanics and directionless level design. Not recommended except for hardcore platformer aficionados who enjoy being masochistic.

Unapologetically simplistic and fanservice embracing, SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy plants itself firmly in the more casual corner of fighting games. Those who enjoy button mashing with friends, and find more technical fighters like BlazBlue or Tekken frustrating, may find this more comfortable.

7.7 / 10.0 - Phantom Doctrine
Aug 14, 2018

Phantom Doctrine offers a fascinating tale of secrets and subterfuge, though you'll need to be willing to butt heads with punishing difficult to enjoy it all the way through. Veterans of turn-based tacticals who are looking for a new challenge would do well to check this one out.

9.2 / 10.0 - Overcooked 2
Aug 7, 2018

Words can't do the frantic nature of Overcooked 2 justice, and that's the beauty of it. There's never been a session where we haven't had a blast playing, even when we're butting heads against tough levels that we fail several times in a row; there's not many games we can say that about. With the option of both local and online co-op, Overcooked 2 becomes one of the the best party games available.

Despite its shortcomings in the user experience field, Airheart offers a fun experience that's easy to drop into at any time. Once you're over the initial learning curves the game becomes a great casual game unlike anything else, with ever new exciting new heights to reach.

7.8 / 10.0 - Moonlighter
Jul 12, 2018

Great for bite-sized gameplay, Moonlighter is one of the most polished and well-tuned shop simulator/dungeon diving roguelites we've played in a long time. While the repetitive mechanics can become tiresome if playing for hours at a time, tackling the game in small chunks is a satisfying experience, and we'd recommend it as a casual game for most players.

8.1 / 10.0 - Rainbow Skies
Jun 26, 2018

With a large world full of humor and adventure to explore, Rainbow Skies improves upon its predecessor in every way, offering plenty to tactical RPG fans who like their quests a little quirky. A must-have for Disgaea fans.
