Unscored - Dune: Spice Wars
Apr 25, 2022

A compact, complex 4X with attentiveness to the source material. But an inconsistent midgame and lack of narrative decision making hold it back from maximum spiciness.

The main story soon falls into repetition, and its side content is bloated with busywork, but exploring and fighting your way through Tango’s eerie, detailed rendition of Shibuya is where Ghostwire: Tokyo shines.

With its special combos and metres, this frenetic and summery Air Hockey-style game has more in common with Street Fighter than with other sports games

Unscored - RPGolf Legends
Jan 28, 2022

An admirably odd and confident golf mini-game/ARPG hybrid, brought down by a tedious structure.

Our compulsion for profit is smartly skewered by this simple game set in a trading-market where the currency is body parts

Unscored - Wartales
Nov 30, 2021

A sandbox tactical/RPG hybrid with gritty, low fantasy charm, Wartales is systemically ambitious, but sturdy and clever enough to hold its own.

Oct 20, 2021

Short of somehow also being a massive box full of toys, secret envelopes, and bears to rummage around in with a group of mates, I couldn't ask for more from this loving and skillful adaptation.

Unscored - Aragami 2
Sep 21, 2021

Aragami 2's ninja garb is frayed around the edges, but it's still an easy, breezy fit. Perfect for a quick-fix of stealth, and joyfully light on its feet.

6 / 10 - SkateBIRD
Sep 20, 2021

SkateBIRD is a charming game with fun writing and a great soundtrack, but can't strike a good balance between offering precision boarding and silly physics chaos.

Unscored - King's Bounty II
Sep 13, 2021

King's Bounty 2's hexed-based battles, customisation and army management are all a good time. The RPG they're packaged with, while sometimes gorgeous, is baggy and bland.

Occasionally neat visuals and cyber magic can't save this cyberpunk shooter from firing damp squibs on all cylinders.

Unscored - Garden Story
Sep 13, 2021

The frequent combat in this ARPG is hit-and-miss, but behind it is a sweet and sincere tale set in a land you'll care about saving and starring the G.O.T.Y (grape of the year).

Aliens: Fireteam Elite has a lack of mission variety, technical issues, bad matchmaking, and a repetitive structure. All of that said, it's still a fun time. I'm off to play some more right now.

Fantastic new units and the best lizardmen campaign yet, paired with a cathartic but comically overpowered beastmen stampede.

Jun 29, 2021

An ambitious RTS/Twin Stick hybrid with a lot of potential and some great moments, let down by technical issues, inconsistent flow, and a lack of tutorials. One to keep an eye on if the premise appeals, but not worth diving into straight away.

An undeniable passion project with incredible world design, addictive gunplay, and a great soundtrack, let down by jank, weak storytelling, and half-baked systems. I could see this getting rave reviews if it had been released in Early Access, though. Give it six months. It's got the makings of a corpse-grinder cult classic.
