7.5 / 10.0 - The Sinking City
Jul 13, 2019

The Sinking City, like most of Frogwares' other titles, offers a great concept with a somewhat poor execution. The severe lack of polish destroys the promising atmosphere, and some of the misguided gameplay elements can be annoying. If you're willing to look past that, however, then you get a very enjoyable investigative thriller in and of itself, even without those Lovecraftian elements.

Despite the huge parity of performance on different platforms (especially the Switch version) and its long list of bugs and issues, not to mention its lack of polish, Bloodstained is a very decent game that just proves that Igarashi rightfully earned his mark on the Metroidvania genre. It's not in any way a classic, especially compared to Symphony of the Night and its other contemporaries - but its a good, highly enjoyable and replayable, albeit flawed title nonetheless.

10 / 10.0 - Outer Wilds
Jun 6, 2019

If I ever find myself in my own closed time-loop, I’d wish for me to play the Outer Wilds, but with the added bonus of forgetting about it, just so I can experience it all over again. It’s that good, and the first true title that I could say is a 'must-play' for 2019.

8.5 / 10.0 - Observation
May 21, 2019

An amazing, unique and genuinely mind-bending entry into the science-fiction genre, Observation draws on its distinct set-up to pull you into a mystery set deep in space. It's existential dread condensed into roughly six to eight hours of gameplay. Discounting the sometimes buggy levels, it has everything you could ever ask for in an original sci-fi title: an intriguing premise, a foreboding theme, and an AI player character, whose motive eludes even yourself.

A Plague Tale: Innocence is an example of storytelling and gameplay meshed together right. It's honest, brutal and incredibly hopeful all at the same time, and it does so without being naive. Ultimately, it teaches us that even at the point when everything seems lost, and the end approaches without respite, going on is easy so long as we have even just one person to call family.

8 / 10.0 - Rise of Industry
May 6, 2019

Rise of Industry, much like real-life business ventures, takes serious work and effort. However, like said ventures, it offers a unique, rich and vastly rewarding experience to anyone who succeeds, as well as a minimum ten times return of your investment guaranteed.

A very strong point-and-click mystery title that excels in every area, and where each element subtly complements the short but bittersweet narrative.

7 / 10.0 - World War Z
Apr 19, 2019

Underneath the connectivity issues and game-breaking bugs is a solid third-person zombie shooter in the vein of the classic Left 4 Dead series.

6.5 / 10.0 - Past Cure
Feb 23, 2018

Past Cure is too busy trying to figure out what genre it is, failing to execute the simplest mechanics that would've made the game far more enjoyable.

Bayonetta 2 is a perfect choice to port over to the Nintendo Switch. The eclectic action and story is a treat on its own, but it's amazing how great it looks and plays when in handheld mode.

8.5 / 10.0 - Secret of Mana HD
Feb 15, 2018

While it retains some of the annoying quirks of the SNES original (and brings a few new ones to the table), the Secret of Mana remake is still a rollicking good time for old-school RPG fans.

if you loved the first Cyber Sleuth then you'll really enjoy Hacker's Memory. The story is simple and gives a new perspective to this world, but if you didn't play the first title you may be lost when a particular character shows up.

Overall, Rise and Fall doesn't address any particular issues in early, late or mid-game, so any problems you have with those points in the game remain. Instead, Rise and Fall adds a framework to your game that makes it more comprehensible and more your own than ever before.

Feb 2, 2018

UFC 3 is amazing to watch and fun to play, but there are still a few problems that hold it back from perfection.

6.5 / 10.0 - Lost Sphear
Jan 25, 2018

Lost Sphear is a mixed bag that will appeal to some RPG fans more than others. Combat is challenging and fun, but the story feels lacking and derivative for much of the game.
