A current-gen rendition of Contra with top-down, twin-stick shooter mechanics sounds like a great idea. But Contra: Rouge Corps’ shoddy execution proves that a project such as this one is better left in more capable hands.

One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is a complete waste of a great manga/anime property. Instead of creating a worthwhile game for the series in the vein of a fun action RPG or spirited beat ’em up, fans are instead treated to a lame arena fighting game.

The more masochistic crowd of gamers out there will get a kick out of the formidable puzzles and vicious death cutscenes. The pure mediocrity of the rest of the game doesn't do enough to make it a worthy recommendation, however.

5.5 / 10.0 - WWE 2K20
Oct 23, 2019

But there are far too many negatives in place here that disrupts all the good WWE 2K20 tries to deliver. Perhaps it’s time for another developer to try their hand at WWE’s video game efforts…

The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia is ultimately average at best.

5.5 / 10.0 - Dynasty Warriors 9
Feb 13, 2018

Sure, the hack 'n slash mechanics have been improved and remains the main pull of this new sequel. But it's simply not enough to convince non-fans to take Dynasty Warriors more seriously. The diehards will flock to it, of course. But they may even be disappointed with its lackluster quality as well.

5.8 / 10.0 - Godfall
Nov 19, 2020

Godfall had a lot going for it. It was unveiled as the very first PS5 release, adopted the moniker of a looter slasher, and looked to be the equivalent of Warframe when it first launched on PS4. Unfortunately, it fails to stand out as a must-play killer app for the newly released PS5. Boredom quickly sets in as you run around gorgeous yet incredibly lifeless locales, embark on tiresome quests, and get treated to a storyline that’s entirely forgettable. Godfall’s quality combat mechanics, healthy offering of cool looking loot, and slick looking Valorplate armors are sadly stuck within a lackluster shell of a game.

You’ll experience moments within this military shooter that inspire a little bit of confidence. But those fleeting moments of fun quickly dissipate as the game’s unfinished feel and lack of polish spring up far too often.

6 / 10.0 - Bright Memory
Nov 10, 2020

As a playable teaser for Bright Memory: Infinite, Bright Memory sadly underwhelms. Some of its default control methods feel unwieldy, your foes take far too much damage to put down, and the completion time tied to it is extremely short. While its combat mechanics and graphical output shine, the litany of issues present within Bright Memory will keep you from enjoying yourself for too long. Here’s hoping that Bright Memory: Infinite irons out all the kinks and realizes its full potential in 2021. You might be better off watching a playthrough of this teaser and waiting for the full release instead of ruining your hype for it by playing this disappointing first episode.

The New Game+ add-on’s and fresh picture-taking options are fine, but they don’t do a whole lot to outweigh Re:Mind’s weaker portions. This DLC expansion is fine in parts and wholly disappointing in others.

The Medium sadly joins Blair Witch as another disappointing effort from Bloober Team.

6.5 / 10.0 - Disintegration
Jun 10, 2020

Disintegration’s fresh take on your usual FPS is fully realized in a single-player setting, yet its unique gameplay doesn’t feel all that fun in a more competitive setting.

6.5 / 10.0 - Dangerous Driving
Apr 8, 2019

Burnout fans who want to revisit the series pre-Paradise will love everything Dangerous Driving offers. But it’s hard to look past the nagging issues and missing features that could have pushed Dangerous Driving past the competition.

6.5 / 10.0 - Team Sonic Racing
May 23, 2019

While this racer is passable to some extent, its problems will make fans yearn for a true sequel to Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed. Here’s hoping that Sumo Digital makes it way back to what worked so well in the first place.

6.5 / 10.0 - Blade Strangers
Sep 2, 2018

You'll get a quick dose of fun from it, but quickly move on to something more fulfilling in the fighting game genre soon after.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth – Hacker's Memory relies too heavily on everything that was introduced in the entry that came before it. While the new story, characters, puzzles, battles and locations are all commendable elements, the wealth of reused content used in this entry is troubling.

Gravel's solid gameplay and strong career mode does enough to keep things mildly enjoyable.

6.8 / 10.0 - Just Cause 4
Dec 7, 2018

Just Cause 4 is rough around the edges and is one of those releases whose fun factor depletes over time. It still provides a slew of entertaining moments, but not not enough interesting takes on the types of themes that are starting to feel a bit played out.
