3.5 / 5.0 - The Golf Club
Aug 25, 2014

[I]f all you need is an excellent golfing engine to use on a functionally-infinite number of courses then The Golf Club is unbeatable.

Lichdom: Battlemage is a big, complicated, awesome beast of an FPS.  When you've got a system down and are tearing through enemies you feel like magic incarnate, wielding the secrets of the universe to eviscerate all in your path.

4 / 5.0 - Race The Sun
Oct 29, 2014

Race the Sun was a load of good arcade-style fun on PC and the PS4 version is a near-perfect port.  The heart of the game made it intact and, while it's a shame to be missing the player creations, the daily challenge is always worth returning to.

The problem with reviving such an excellent series is that comparing it to past games is both completely fair and also a bad idea.  It's easy to look at all the things Geometry Wars 3 leaves behind while neglecting that it's a still a fun, challenging shooter.

2 / 5.0 - Zombeer
Feb 2, 2015

Fortunately, it falls apart in a semi-entertaining fashion; not in a "so bad it's good" way but rather a "can't look away" way.  For all the well-deserved kicking I've given Zombeer, I also pushed through to finish the game not because I was obligated to for the review, but because I was morbidly curious as to where it was going.

3 / 5.0 - Grow Home
Feb 18, 2015

The sad thing about the controls is that everything else in Grow Home is so well done.  Exploring the world, gliding around on a leaf, climbing to the bottom of an island, and growing shoots to new areas are a lovable traits.

That's not as negative as it might sound, though, because huge AAA games with massive production and marketing budgets have come out and been completely forgotten in the seven years since Super Stardust first landed on the PS3, but the advantage of a great arcade game is that it's timeless.  It's just as much fun today to blast through massive fields of rocks and dodge-y, twisty, explodey enemy waves as it was in the early days of the PS3, and if the rumored (but incredibly likely) Morpheus compatibility works out then it will be great in VR, too.

4 / 5.0 - We Are Doomed
Apr 14, 2015

We Are Doomed was a great twin-stick shooter last year and it's only gotten better with the year's worth of upgrades.  The enemy types and challenges are carefully tuned to allow massive destruction, but still require good planning and split-second decisions as the safe areas gradually disappear.

4 / 5.0 - Titan Souls
Apr 14, 2015

Titan Souls is a quietly beautiful little epic. The contrast of the boss fights with the peaceful exploration works to create a world of contrasts, broken but not dead.

Crypt of the NecroDancer is a phenomenal dungeon crawler.  It's loaded with personality, great music, fun characters and deep action that only appears simplistic on the surface.
