VGChartz's Reviews

Jun 21, 2022

With ten games, online lobbies, multiple achievements, and many opportunities to master your fighting technique, there should be plenty here to keep you busy while you wait for some enterprising Capcom executive to green light Red Earth 2.

Polygonal Wolf didn't make a tale worth telling; even worse, it never feels like that was ever a goal.

7 / 10.0 - Final Vendetta
Jun 17, 2022

An incredibly faithful retro-inspired side-scrolling beat ‘em up.

Thanks to its many playable characters, multiple modes, addictive action, fetching graphics, and support for up to six players both online and offline, it's arguably the best brawler in the expansive Turtles canon.

6 / 10.0 - Roller Champions
Jun 9, 2022

There's something satisfying about its derby-style structure and the nuanced tactics that entails. Its rollerblading mechanics are very approachable, yet there's also a deceptive skill ceiling too. But, like skating through a small sand mound, the momentum is lost by the repetition and under-polished features.

6 / 10.0 - Kao the Kangaroo
Jun 1, 2022

It lacks the real quality and finesse of the top games in the genre, but it’s a bright and breezy affair that squarely falls under the classification of light entertainment.

The Salt games are in an awkward spot now, having mish-mashed several wildly successful ideas from other titles, but being unable to make them fit together into an identity of their own. Hopefully, if we get a third entry, Ska Studios will be able to make it all coalesce.

The price point is unreasonable, the games on display don't have nearly enough new content, and what is new has some charm but ultimately lacks staying power.

5.5 / 10.0 - Dolmen
May 21, 2022

It can't compete with the brilliance of Elden Ring (no shame in that) but it also falls short of other AA sci-fi action-RPGs like The Surge and Hellpoint. Ultimately, it seems less like an offshoot of Dark Souls and more like a proof of concept launched before From Software birthed the sub-genre.

7 / 10.0 - Citizen Sleeper
May 16, 2022

Citizen Sleeper is a very compelling experience, with an enticing story supported by some solid strategy gameplay and barebones but still competent RPG mechanics. If you’re open to a Disco Elysium-esque visual novel that’s a bit lighter in tone (despite the dystopian setting) and emphasizes resource management more, it’s safe to say you’ll enjoy this.

3 / 10.0 - In Nightmare
May 13, 2022

Yes, it's functional and has some decent concepts, however the experience simply can't avoid comparisons with boring indie horror titles. Even its small gameplay nuances wind up detracting from engagement in multifaceted ways.

6.5 / 10.0 - Trek to Yomi
May 6, 2022

Artistically and thematically, it hits all the right notes, and conjures memories of Kurosawa and Mifune. However, if you prefer deep, diverse gameplay to art and story, you might find yourself only partially satisfied.

5.5 / 10.0 - Lumberhill
May 1, 2022

An acceptable party game that's moderately fun in small doses and with the right group of friends. Its repetitive nature, fussy controls, and generic graphics hold it back, but its high replay value and accessibility give it some staying power.

4.5 / 10.0 - A Memoir Blue

A Memoir Blue’s aspirations as an interactive poem feel undone by shallow execution.

8 / 10.0 - Paradise Killer
Apr 25, 2022

Paradise Killer succeeds by selling all of its ostensibly contradictory artistic choices as inseparable parts of a greater whole.

It’s a perfectly functional game, if nothing else, and for only $12 you’re certainly not risking a lot by purchasing it.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land reminds fans of what makes this charming franchise so uniquely fun. At the same time, Nintendo and HAL elevate the formula with Kirby’s range of strong and often absurd powers, dense 3D settings, and (relative) depth through upgrades and extras.

5 / 10.0 - Ghostwire: Tokyo
Apr 20, 2022

Ghostwire Tokyo is a cool action game with equally cool design in many respects, but suffers from several shortcomings and erroneous game design choices. There's not enough emphasis on horror, story, or spectacle, and while it tends to attempt a lot of things at the same time - action shooter, horror, RPG, open world, platformer - it fails to excel at most, if any, of them.

The Radical Dreamers Edition isn't as bad as it's made out to be, but to say it's a far cry from what it should have been is an understatement.

8 / 10.0 - Gran Turismo 7
Apr 17, 2022

There are some misgivings to find within its design, on and off the track, but Polyphony's meticulous craftmanship handedly surpasses them.
