Bleak Faith: Forsaken is running on vibes alone; delivering a bundle of tremendously creative art design and a promising concept, tied together by the weak string of its functionality.
Despite having less content, Sons of the Forest in its early access state is a shinier and better version of its predecessor and I look forward to future updates.
Although there are flaws in Loretta's gameplay and adventure mechanics, it has a compelling story, brilliant writing, gorgeous graphics, and immersive audio that will make for an enjoyable afternoon playthrough.
Dead Space is an expertly crafted remake which had me hooked right until the very end. A survival horror game fan could not ask for more in this anxiety-inducing experience which has a gripping story and exciting gameplay.
Despite providing rich atmosphere with its stunning visuals and anxiety-inducing sound effects, The Callisto Protocol’s gameplay is frustratingly designed and its story feels almost like an afterthought which was quickly churned out through an online ‘survival horror game’ story generator. At least the Dead Space remake is coming out in January.
Despite being the most consistently enjoyable installment yet in "The Dark Pictures Anthology" series, "The Devil in Me" is plagued with game-breaking bugs, pointless gameplay mechanics and a lacklustre ending - ultimately making it the weakest entry in the series so far.

Despite some weak writing, The Chant is fun to play regardless with exciting fighting mechanics and entertaining lore.
Despite its flaws, Unusual Findings is a great point-and-click puzzle adventure game which acts as a love letter to the 1980s. Filled with retro pop culture references, cheesy dialogue and memorable characters, this is one that I certainly want to play again, especially with its complex puzzle solving which can differ in each playthrough depending on your choices.
