Austin Suther's Reviews

I'm from North Carolina and a 2018 graduate of UNCW. I like writing and I like gaming, so I combined my two passions. I also love to read fantasy.
7.5 / 10.0 - Dread Templar
Jan 25, 2023

With a load of fun weapons to use and frontloaded with creative levels, Dread Templar is a game with a few flaws -- like its relatively repetitive final two acts -- but nothing that detracts from having an action-packed, bloody good time.

8 / 10.0 - High on Life
Dec 12, 2022

Though High on Life takes a bit of time to get the ball rolling and lacks some enemy variety, it's a comical adventure with an excellent opening and finale, and promises plenty of other surprises in store for players.

9.5 / 10.0 - Pentiment
Nov 22, 2022

A masterful tale of murder and history, Pentiment's strong narrative and choices make this beautifully illustrated game one of 2022's best releases.

This unsettling adventure is one of the most engrossing horror games in recent memory, despite the restrained visuals. Subtle sound design and a small but strong soundtrack as well as creepy rotoscoped scenes up the scary factor tenfold.

7.5 / 10.0 - Potionomics
Oct 24, 2022

Potionomics is a gorgeous game with expertly animated characters and entertaining writing. The potion-making component can be fun, but at times the looming deadline and struggle to gain money makes Potionomics a stressful experience.

8 / 10.0 - CULTIC
Oct 12, 2022

Cultic is a creepy romp through tombs, towns, and other terrorizing areas. Tight gunplay, fantastic stylized visuals and a somber soundtrack are only held back a bit by the dumb AI and relatively trivial combat encounters.

7 / 10.0 - Gundam Evolution
Oct 6, 2022

A solid hero shooter at its core, the gameplay is fundamentally solid and offers a decent variety in suits to choose from. Progression for suits is, however, glacially slow and map/mode variety leaves much to be desired.

9.5 / 10.0 - Prodeus
Sep 26, 2022

Early Access was kind to Prodeus, as the end result gives us a masterful game with incredible maps, punchy and satisfying gunplay, as well as some kick-ass visuals and sound design.

Nitrome and Yacht Club Games' collaboration makes for the best looking (and sounding) Shovel Knight game yet. Rock solid, tight controls and fun roguelite mechanics make this a must play for any fan of the genre.

4.5 / 10.0 - Scathe
Aug 31, 2022

While the gameplay concept of a labyrinthine shooter holds some promise, the gunplay is flat and mowing through enemies is extremely tedious. On top of this, graphics and some technical issues make Scathe feel rather rough around the edges.

Although the gunplay felt solid and there's a lot of replayability, Midnight Fight Express' sloppy controls, poor story, and rather mediocre graphics make for an average-at-best experience.

You haven't seen an FPS quite like this. Taking down fashion criminals with a creative range of weapons makes for some stylish fun.

9 / 10.0 - Stray
Jul 18, 2022

Stray is an immersive and beautiful adventure game filled with so much detail and personality. Who knew solving puzzles as a cat could be so much fun?

Fire Emblem: Three Hopes is an intriguing and addicting alternative take on the story and characters of 2019's popular strategy RPG, with engaging gameplay and plenty of replay value.

10 / 10.0 - Neon White
Jun 27, 2022

A speedrunner's dream and an adrenaline junky's delight, Neon White is a helluva game with top-shelf gameplay, impeccable voice acting, and outstanding visuals.

5.5 / 10.0 - Forgive Me Father
Apr 6, 2022

Forgive Me Father is a painfully average shooter that has a lot of good ideas on paper, but never executes them effectively. As a result, its disjointed areas, upgrade system, and overall level of polish leaves much to be desired.

It's more Ghostrunner, so if you enjoyed the base game, Project_Hel should be on your radar. Hel controls and feels different, so this bundle of levels feels fresh but familiar all the same.

9 / 10.0 - Sifu
Feb 6, 2022

Sifu's a revenge-fueled romp through five spectacular levels combined with a complex and exciting combat system. Just don't get too burned out by the bosses -- they're tough!

Drinkbox's signatue charm and humor is infused in this non-serious ARPG. With a wonderful art style and fun world to explore, Nobody Saves the World is a fun 20 hour escape.

Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon adds a heaping pile of fun, innovative puzzle gameplay and retains the same charm that many Shovel Knight fans fell in love with years ago.
