7 / 10 - Thy Creature
Jan 9, 2023

Thy Creature is a game that wonderfully displays its horror with great artwork, and it shows that the developers had fun crafting their vision of the traditional Frankenstein story.

Dec 13, 2022

Lunistice has been created to give fans of platformers who are on their way to middle age something to reminisce with.

Moving to an open-world concept is a brilliant step forward for the Pokémon series, but currently, this release lacks the Nintendo quality that we expect from their published titles.

The loss of the licence for Kylotonn has translated into their final WRC game coming across like a send off for the development studio, collecting all the good work they have done over the years and compiling it into a "best of" collection.

You cannot mention A Plague Tale: Requiem without the graphics, especially some of the mind-blowing environments and vistas, no matter how beautiful or vile their settings are, plus the incredible rat rendering technology included, help make this some of the best visuals in a medium for 2022.

8 / 10 - Splatoon 3
Sep 29, 2022

Even more colourful, engaging and eccentric than ever before, Splatoon 3 is bringing the same highly amusing casual and competitive fun of Splatoon's unique paint-based versus gameplay and polishes it closer to perfection, like topping up some old decorations with a fresh coat of paint.

7 / 10 - Live A Live
Aug 31, 2022

The structure of this JRPG gives it its unique identity compared to many other games in the same genre, and the vast category of ideas, eras and topics that the game's stories go through help keep it feeling fresh.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is a slow burner, but once everything comes together, it provides some of the better Musou madness, but now with a better story and much-improved character development, which shows how short the Fire Emblem element was in the original Fire Emblem Warriors. Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is a recommended title for Musou and Fire Emblem: Three Houses fans, which will keep you entertained until the next entry hits.

8 / 10 - DNF Duel
Jul 12, 2022

There is not much more to say about DNF Duel. The game does not push the genre forward, but what is here is an exceptionally fun fighting game that is slightly cheaper than full price.

8 / 10 - Souldiers
Jun 24, 2022

Souldiers is a wonderfully looking sprite game with a fun take on the Metroidvania; a diet version of the subgenre that brings well-designed and long dungeons packed with smart platforming and puzzle-solving.

Evil Dead: The Game needs some polish to take it to the next level, as there are some areas that could do with some quality-of-life improvements, and to fix some of the weird physics.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising demonstrates how beautiful Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes will be and it gives us a small insight into that game's characters and the world, but it is done in a game that feels padded out to extend what would otherwise be a short adventure.

This review is for We Were Here Forever, though, and with that in mind it should be noted that there are not many games like this, ones that rely on communication and asymmetrical puzzle solving.

Despite those flaws, anyone looking for an entertaining mix of turn-based action will have a fun time with it. Just like the Saturday morning cartoons that inspired this game that you all enjoyed as a kid; they might not be the best TV shows, but they did the job of providing happy entertainment. Sometimes that can be enough to be satisfied for the day, and Implausible Industries has created something similar to that emotion with their game Research and Destroy.

8 / 10 - Revita
May 17, 2022

It might be another roguelite, but Revita is a great addition to the already expanding catalogue of great roguelites.

Teardown is an impressive game that surprised me with what it was offering.

Wobbledogs hooks in the player with its bright, colourful visuals, and its cute critters that easily charm their new owners.

Kingdom of the Dead is a solid retro-inspired first-person shooter created by Dirigo Games who understandably love the 90s approach to level design and gameplay.

It is a promising start for this huge expansion, with a varied selection of tracks, some straightforward, some complex.
