In the end, Jurassic World Evolution can never quite transcend a certain knocked-off feeling tied to its licensed roots.

Unscored - Mega Man 11
Jan 15, 2019

Unscored - Hitman 2
Jan 15, 2019

Hitman 2, like most of its predecessors, is catnip for perfectionists: It rewards patience, careful preparation, and attention to detail—an obsessive-compulsive alternative to trigger-happy action gaming. But as satisfying as it can be to successfully weaponize your understanding of the game’s teeming environments, to convert chaos into control, there’s a lot of fun in watching your best laid plans go astray, too—to having your disguise fail to fool someone, to getting caught dragging a body to a hiding place, to failing to clear out of a restricted area fast enough and suddenly having five bodyguards raining hellfire onto you.

Skeptics of the studio's previous games won't be convinced, but there are plenty of small improvements that make it Quantic's best offering to date

Unscored - Far Cry 5
Mar 26, 2018

Montana features some of the most beautiful country in all of America, and Ubisoft has done an amazing job of capturing its rural glory. And the freedom to get credit for just f***** around in this gorgeous world, doing whatever feels most fun, is legitimately intoxicating.
