Friday the 13th takes its eighties theme a little too literally, ending up just like other movie-licensed games of the era — becoming an awful, sluggish disappointment. Despite the game's promising premise, Friday the 13th fails to keep its head above water. Avoid this game.
Gorgeous visuals and shiny new loot fail to make up for a short, underwhelming story which completely fails to take advantage of a potentially amazing Infinite Forest. Light on both content and innovation, Curse of Osiris is a disappointing first expansion.
For a patient gamer willing to look past flat voice acting, awkward controls and a slow first act, Neofeud presents an enjoyable dystopian adventure with great concept and solid soundtrack. Look up some gameplay footage to gauge whether this one'll be right for you.
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.
Featherpunk Prime is a tough, visually saturated twin-stick shooter that takes the essence of games like Contra and Metroid, imbuing them with retrofuturistic neon color and procedurally generated levels. Fans of games like Metal Slug or Super Time Force should find a comfortable new home here.
If you can look past the awkward animation, poor dialog and condescending tone, Zero Time Dilemma offers a short but interesting mystery murder experience and set of puzzles, if only to fill the gap between other new decision-heavy (or Danganronpa) titles.
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.
While The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 improves upon its predecessor, it fails to evolve in any meaningful way, continuing to be plagued by poor story and lackluster gameplay. A solid purchase for fans of the original, but general action RPG fans should look elsewhere.
If you're seeking an interesting space sandbox which offers a new take on core mechanics, Starpoint Gemini Warlords is a solid contender. If, however, you're looking for thrilling, dynamic space battles you'll be better off checking elsewhere.
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.
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.
For fans of hardcore games such as Super Meat Boy or I Wanna Be The Guy, 10 Second Ninja X is a fantastic game. The short bursts of gameplay make 10SNX great for people with limited time, but the difficulty won't be for everyone; grab the demo first if you're new to hardcore platformers.
