Unscored - Carto
Nov 11, 2020

Carto gets a lot of brain-bending mileage from its central mechanic.

Unscored - The Room
Aug 18, 2014

While it's to The Room's credit that the graphics and sound design remain impressive with the transition to PC, and able to compete against other PC titles, the gameplay does not, and without a compelling story the experience ends up being sadly forgettable.

Jackbox Games' Jackbox Party Pack 2 is a disappointingly sophomoric sequel, and in every sense of the word.

The premise and its presentation, along with a generous difficulty curve, ultimately, if barely, saves the game.

Throughout, Troll and I often raises the question of just how much testing was done to spot and correct mistakes.

It refuses to treat your protagonist's quest seriously, which in turn undermines the serious gameplay.

At best, Doors is a game about the illusion of choice, and Weibel's is the only one that matters.

There's not a shred of innovation or much of a concerted effort to evoke terror in players throughout the entirety of Daylight.

It doesn’t help that House of Ashes tends toward monotony. Much of the game is spent slowly exploring dark caves, sometimes the exact same ones, except with different characters. Too often you may find yourself trying to shake off tedium by trying to interact with something only to inadvertently activate a protagonist’s death. Or a jump scare might shake you out of it, but given how telegraphed they are, the game’s horror ends up being as ineffective as the story, which is given over to Aqua Teen Hunger Force-like levels of deranged non-sequitur plotting. While the prior games in this series never reached the heights of Until Dawn, they didn’t lack for disturbing and memorable imagery. By contrast, this game’s non-human baddies are so over-designed and uninspired that they never jangle the player’s nerves.

The similarities between SolSeraph and ActRaiser are unmistakable, but it's a joyless facsimile that lacks a single spark of innovation.

Though it's abundant in hyper-realistic visuals, that isn't enough to disguise its lack of polish in almost every other way.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead certainly stokes the player’s despair, but not the sort that its developers intended.

Red Barrels's game is an immature and hateful slight at anyone who dares to believe in a divine creator.

The developer's ambition to make a triple-A title without the resources of a larger studio gets the better of them.

The developers veer beyond the cartoonish nature of the TMNT television series and straight into the absurd.

This series reboot fails to replicate the cleanness of the original games’ racing mechanics.
