Chinatown Detective Agency has unique and interesting gameplay which is hampered by bizarre design choices and numerous bugs. Updates are coming though, which should hopefully realise the game's potential.
For fans of Japanese cinema, this game is a must play. For everyone else, while you're sure to be wowed by the visuals you'll probably find the gameplay a little too light and repetitive to hold your attention for very long.
Sonority is a fun game that will easily keep you going for a few evenings. None of the puzzles will leave you scratching your head for too long which for people with dangerously short attention spans is a major positive. The puzzles can get repetitive quite quickly, but the plot is interesting enough to keep you playing to discover the mysteries of the game world.
If you've liked the previous iterations of Sniper Elite, you'll only find this an enhanced and more enjoyable update. It may not convert sceptics, but this is still the best game in the series and it's the perfect time to jump into the franchise in all its dirt-hugging, ball-blasting glory.
An excellent genre-defining game that breathes new life into popular and thought-provoking sci-fi tropes. The fact there's more content to be released in the coming year makes it even more appealing.
A unique and challenging game that will keep you entertained long after the initial charm wears off.
Voyage is not going to challenge your brain, it won't make your palms sweat or give you a boost of adrenaline from snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. It doesn't last a hundred hours with half a dozen DLCs to keep you busy. It's just a pretty and moving game that will keep you entertained for a couple of hours. It's not pretending to be anything else and it's all the better for it.
A tough game that's sometimes a little too harsh for its own good, but if you're up for the challenge, there's a wonderfully touching gaming experience to be had here.
