It's not perfect; load times are lengthy, text is painfully small, and there are some unusual graphical glitches here and there. However, Children of Morta is overall a great success, and manages to forge a unique identity.

4 / 10 - ReadySet Heroes

There's imagination on show here, but right now, it's not something we can recommend.

7 / 10 - Concrete Genie
Oct 8, 2019

Concrete Genie is a warm, joyful experience that embraces creativity in a unique way. Painting your way through Denska is effortlessly fun, and the genies that help Ash through his adventure are delightful. While this main thrust of the game is well realised, combat feels like an afterthought, as it's stashed away right at the end. This and a couple of smaller issues hold the game back from greatness, but taken as a whole, this is definitely worth playing -- and pretty as a picture, too.

7 / 10 - Grid
Oct 8, 2019

GRID is a very solid racing game that harkens back to the 2008 original in some important ways.

A clear improvement on the original, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is a pleasant surprise. It struggles to balance difficulty, but the end result is a robust and compelling platformer. It feels much more cohesive than its older brother and, free from the need to play to nostalgia, gives the characters and the world a better identity. It isn't perfect, but it's certainly a step in the right direction for Playtonic Games.

Whether playing for the first time or picking it up for old time's sake, Castle Crashers is still capable of providing simple, senseless fun.

8 / 10 - Mutazione
Sep 21, 2019

Mutazione is simple, but achieves what it sets out to do: tell an emotional story about community, family, and forgiveness among a memorable ensemble cast. It's relaxing, compelling, and unique. That it also looks and sounds magnificent is just the icing on the cake.

7 / 10 - The Sojourn
Sep 19, 2019

It's not exactly original, but The Sojourn is a solid puzzler with well designed levels and some nice ideas.

At the end of the day, this is a neat experiment that fans of the film will enjoy, but overall it fails to measure up to the source material.

7 / 10 - WRC 8
Sep 3, 2019

Overall, the driving is competent, and most importantly, delivers that thrill ride as you scream over treacherous terrain. It's a shame the presentation is somewhat lacking, because this is otherwise a solid rally experience.
