Through creative world-building and earnest emotion, SEASON makes you appreciate the marvelous sights and sounds amidst a crumbling world.

6.5 / 10.0 - Wavetale
Jan 16, 2023

While Wavetale's elegant surfing/platforming foundation is engaging, choppy waters within its design & storytelling keep it from being a huge splash.

6.5 / 10.0 - High on Life
Jan 14, 2023

Squanch Games is certainly onto something when it comes to the satirical motifs laced with chaotic action, but the formula could use some refining and further fleshing out.

6 / 10.0 - Impaler
Jan 12, 2023

The moment-to-moment combat is pretty fun, and the enemy variety is solid, but the lack of weapon swapping and the same old arena do hamper the experience.

Delivers that crunchy, stylized arcade action that helped make the Genesis generation so memorable.

9 / 10.0 - Chained Echoes
Jan 8, 2023

A modern RPG classic; a game that would have made a splash on SNES, even surrounded by all-time greats like Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger.

3 / 10.0 - Hello Neighbor 2
Jan 7, 2023

While it's not difficult to surpass the dreadful original, Hello Neighbor 2 too often feels satisfied with the bare minimum, while also implementing avaricious launch-day DLC elements.

5 / 10.0 - Hindsight
Jan 6, 2023

Hindsight occasionally harmonizes mechanics with meaningful themes, but the overall impression feels hollow the more I look back.

6.5 / 10.0 - Sable
Dec 31, 2022

Sable's plethora of technical faults compels me to warn everyone about its current state on PS5, but I still sincerely hope you'll embark on The Gliding someday.

There are several reasons HOOK's freshmen title fittingly opens at a hospital: its jejune writing, vapid design, and inconsistent presentation quickly flatline any interest.

6.5 / 10.0 - River City Girls 2
Dec 22, 2022

River City Girls 2 is a fairly good beat-'em-up title. It's certainly an improvement over River City Girls, although it carries with it some of the original's flaws, including tedious backtracking and repetitive enemy encounters.

8 / 10.0 - IXION
Dec 20, 2022

As an experience it’s honestly one of the most engaging and engrossing I’ve played this year.

Scarlet & Violet bring alluring open-world gameplay and a slew of colorful new monsters to the fold, but quirks and spotty performance keep it from being the Titan it could've been.

5 / 10.0 - Somerville
Dec 17, 2022

Somerville's biggest fault isn't with Jumpship utilizing Playdead’s successful template, but rather in forgetting to incorporate the pedigree alongside it.

8 / 10.0 - Chop Goblins
Dec 17, 2022

Chop Goblins shouldn’t be dismissed just because it looks cutesy and has a short run time; it’s genuinely fun, endearing, and, for $5, an absolute bargain for one of the most charming and enjoyable hours of the year.

Modestly-priced but misguided, Bloody Ties reflects a more restrictive design ethos without a worthwhile payoff.

A delightful RPG in its own right, rather than just a good retro-like experience.

Despite corrections making for an improved all-around package, Modern Warfare II continues the series' ongoing trend of paling in comparison to its original namesake.

The combat, when it’s clicking, is genuinely fantastic for a more action-driven horror title. But much of what is built around that combat lets it down: the pacing and atmosphere are largely non-existent; the level design, UI, and checkpoint system are very player-unfriendly; and there just aren’t enough set pieces and gameplay diversions to prevent the combat from getting somewhat repetitive by the game’s end.

Setting aside various nitpicks & critiques, Batora: Lost Haven's overarching issue is making Avril's extraordinary journey feel ordinary by the end.
