Lee Mehr's Reviews

His gaming history spans several console generations: N64 & NES at home while enjoying some Playstation, SEGA, and PC titles elsewhere. Being an Independent Contractor by trade (electric, plumbing, etc.) affords him more gaming luxuries today though. Reader warning: each click given to his articles only helps to inflate his Texas-sized ego. Who knows? He may become your next favorite game critic to detest. [NOTE: Reviews from VGChartz & DarkStation reflect a more wide-ranging spectrum to review scores. Review scores from GamingNexus reflect a scholastic value--a heavier emphasis on 7-10 scale.]

More enticing systemically than it is narratively, Windbound nevertheless succeeds as a sojourner's adventure of striving for survival and greater understanding.

3.5 / 10.0 - We Should Talk

Insatiable Cycle's zeal in tackling dialogue choices is something to appreciate. But that can only go so far when the script is tacky, the game design is clumsy, and the retail price is terribly overvalued.

The Wake: Mourning Father, Mourning Mother is too uncoordinated in the game being made and the story being told. It hits a strange chord with me because I find Somi laudable and his previous work worth investigating. The visual/audio design’s toned-down, retro ethos marries well with the saccharine storytelling and yet, obstructive gameplay frequently flatlined my drive to turn the next page.

6 / 10 - Rocket Arena

Final Strike Games' first title excels at short-lived fun, but monetization practices & current imbalances eventually cause engine burnout.

Despite some grievances, Remedy's newest expansion is a worthwhile compliment to the fantastic base game.

Hones in on my nostalgia goggles while never quite satiating me like the original.

This may end up as one of R. L. Stine's greatest nightmares yet—for all the wrong reasons.
