7.5 / 10.0 - Gotham Knights
Oct 20, 2022

Gotham Knights took on the high expectation of its audience by taking on the Court of Owls storyline. Though it flounders under the weight throughout the playtime, it is still a great Batman experience that does explore the loss of Batman and what it means for the world going forward.

Return to Monkey Island shows there is a place for this style of game in the gaming world of 2022 for both new players and returning ones, Point and click games do not have to be pocking stuffed puzzlers, but they still can be at the same time. At its heart, the Witt and humour of the series shine through no matter how you are experiencing the game, and it is in this versatility the work of Ron Gilbert and Terrible Toybox shines through indeed.

Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One is not a perfect game; the action gameplay is dated and repetitive; the open-world seems overly ambitious at times, especially with consistent frame drops on PS5 and the learning curve to become the great detective may dissuade some players, but at its core it has a truly remarkable and insightful narrative about a young man trying to come to terms with the troubles of his youth, solving a number of grizzly murders along the way.

6 / 10.0 - The Big Con
Sep 9, 2021

Mighty Yell shows its creative flair through The Big Con's art style and soundtrack, which makes me look forward to future titles from the studio and hope that Skybound continues its mission to reinvent adventure games.

10 / 10.0 - Psychonauts 2
Aug 23, 2021

Psychonauts 2 excels where others have failed by crafting a story experience that welcomes players, new and old, into the fantastically absurd world of the Psychonauts. I will not forget my time with Psychonauts 2 easily; the characters and themes have left a lasting impression.

For a game made by a solo developer at Deadleaf Games, Nom Nom Apocalypse is creatively impressive but held back by several bugs and a rather repetitive gameplay loop.
