3 / 5.0 - Dead Rising 3
Nov 29, 2013

Perhaps the biggest issue with Dead Rising 3 is that there's not much to it. Those who want to simply roam and cause wanton destruction will find their needs tremendously appeased, but anyone hoping to see a game truly trying something new will want to look elsewhere.

4.5 / 5.0 - Nihilumbra
Dec 7, 2013

Nihilumbra is the kind of game that many will look over because they think they've played things like it hundreds of times before. It's not.

1.5 / 5.0 - Gomo
Dec 11, 2013

Gomo takes an hour or two to play through. There's nothing wrong with short experiences, and sometimes they're preferred, but when there is nothing special about this game, it is harder to justify a purchase.

4 / 5.0 - The Novelist
Dec 14, 2013

We're simply not used to having real emotional reactions to video games. Sure, some titles are getting better at it, but for the most part that's something truly lacking in the medium.

Whether you'll like this title or not is entirely dependent on your willingness to accept games that attempt to "say" something. Even agreeing or disagreeing that the point was sufficiently met isn't as important as the mindset one comes in with.

3.5 / 5.0 - Nidhogg
Jan 18, 2014

Nidhogg is a polarizing game. Experiencing it the way it's meant to be played (via local multiplayer) is a fantastically fun event.

3.5 / 5.0 - NaissanceE
Feb 16, 2014

NaissanceE was a game that I fell in and out of love with while playing. When first introduced to the industrial architecture, it seemed like such a cool landscape.

4 / 5.0 - Year Walk
Mar 8, 2014

Year Walk is a surprising game. The name reveals little and leaves you room to fill in what exactly is going on and why for much of the journey.

3 / 5.0 - Windforge
Mar 10, 2014

The weirdest thing about Windforge is that it is full of potential but chips away at it due to its unpolished nature. Slightly unorthodox controls, menus with a bit more clicking required than necessary, and less than optimal building conditions tone down what could easily be a critically acclaimed experience.

4 / 5.0 - Luftrausers
Mar 22, 2014

Playing Luftrausers is like jumping back to a time when the only requirement for a good game was to be fun. Thanks to varied battles, customizable planes, and challenges, it manages to improve on the classic formula of simple and addictive entertainment.

3.5 / 5.0 - Cloudbuilt
Mar 24, 2014

There is so much to love about Cloudbuilt that it's a shame it has a handful of issues that dampen the experience. Freerunning games are few and far between and it's definitely one of the more exciting, skill-based platforming titles out there.

2 / 5.0 - Putty Squad
Apr 9, 2014

Much of Putty Squad's design decisions seemed steeped in the early '90s. Beyond actual platforming, you've got stars to collect as well as special stickers.

The Blackwell series has spanned eight years and as such has developed a devoted following. Blackwell Epiphany had a lot to live up to and could have easily faltered.

Those who already have friends playing have even less reason not to jump in. As far as MMORPGs go, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is at the top of its class.

4 / 5.0 - Richard & Alice
Jun 3, 2014

The strongest aspect of Richard & Alice is how it manages to tell an engaging story in a fairly compact amount of time. Although players start out as total strangers to the duo, they find themselves quickly interested by their plight.

2.5 / 5.0 - Infinity Runner
Jul 14, 2014

Infinity Runner has a fun, unique concept that isn't utilized to the fullest. Dodging obstacles would be more rewarding if the difficulty ramped up alongside story mode.

4 / 5.0 - Runers
Sep 2, 2014

At first blush, Runers might not seem like anything special. This initial impression is far from the truth.

Dance Central began as a simple game with engaging, realistic dance-based play when it first launched. Since then, there has been a devoted effort to keep the series going — but with little innovation.

At its core, Surgeon Simulator: A&E Anniversary Edition on PS4 is still effectively the same game as it was on PC, just with a few more additions. The biggest change is going from far too precise keyboard controls to still somewhat precise controller support.

This may sound strange, but TRI offers a zen-like experience. Its mostly empty areas provide players with full control over handling every problem.
