Even by the tempered expectations of this fatigued franchise, Modern Warfare III deserves nothing less than a dishonorable discharge.

8 / 10.0 - Super Mario RPG
Dec 26, 2023

While feeling more “evolutionary” instead of “revolutionary” overall, this enriching Mario journey is still as memorable as ever, and makes a terrific swan song for the Switch.

Apropos of The Symbiote, Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is a faster, bigger, & stronger sequel, but also partly corrupted by certain design & narrative decisions.

5 / 10.0 - Catan
Dec 10, 2023

Catan is a serviceable rendition of the tabletop classic – just don't go in expecting dedicated support or functioning online servers.

Move It!’s fun factor doesn’t quite reach the heights it could, thanks to occasionally spotty controls, ambiguous commands, and brief microgames that vary wildly in toughness. Still, the series has always thrived on this balance of simplicity and unpredictable microgame chaos - traits that Move It! unapologetically leans on.

Ultimately, Blaze in the Deepblue isn't as enjoyable as Gal Guardians, or the better Inti Creates games out there. It's still a fairly good Metroidvania, though, with diverse biomes, tight controls, an interesting set of upgradeable abilities, an approachable crafting system, and striking graphics

Irem Collection Volume 1 is a decent start to ININ's five-part anthology.

8.5 / 10.0 - Cocoon
Nov 26, 2023

With a mind-bending core concept, breathless pacing, and splendid presentation, Geometric Interactive's debut puzzler will keep you rapt up through every world within a world.

8 / 10.0 - Dave the Diver
Nov 25, 2023

Thanks to its multi-genre approach, engaging diving and business simulation mechanics, wealth of content, and striking 2.5D visuals, it's one of the best indie titles of the year. It's not a perfect game — its crowded, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink philosophy makes sure of that — but it's one that's absolutely worth diving into.

I’m still not entirely convinced The Man Who Erased His Name needed to exist, but it's a fun & mostly enjoyable 10-15 hour intermission until Infinite Wealth drops in January.

Super Mario Bros. Wonder couldn't have a more appropriate name. It's filled with beautiful sights, lovely music, unexpected mechanics, unfamiliar enemies and power-ups, and, thanks to Wonder Seeds, revelation after revelation after revelation. Not everything new about the game works, and it suffers slightly from easy levels and boss battles, but it delivers everything you'd expect from the series, and more.

3.5 / 10.0 - Sonic Superstars
Nov 19, 2023

Sonic Superstars is ultimately nothing short of a major letdown.

While Blue Isle Studios' continued dedication to the source material is commendable, it can only go so far with fundamentals that are more emaciated than the titular horror mascot.

8.5 / 10.0 - Ghostrunner 2
Nov 13, 2023

Instead of being a title that defines the generation - and perhaps even the medium - Ghostrunner II has to settle for being 'merely' great. Hopefully a third entry in the series can strike a better balance between mixing things up and maintaining the well-refined gameplay as the centerpiece of attention.

While Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris was bitter, Sword Art Online Last Recollection turns out to be rather sweet.

Telltale & Deck Nine's bottle episode can be split into two clean parts: the poignant finale and the monotonous journey to reach it.

6 / 10.0 - Air Twister
Nov 10, 2023

Fans of rail shooters and Suzuki's early arcade work should give this oddball a chance. While the game's core mechanics are rather shallow and its visual assets unimpressive, it succeeds in replay value, boss battles, and music.

Telltale & Deck Nine's Expanse prequel weaves a compelling-enough yarn, but archaic design elements could tempt even ardent fans into spacing it.

This attempt to “meet in the middle” between styles, while it should appeal to a wider range of fans, doesn’t really excel in the realms of stealth or ARPG. The result is a fairly average action-adventure with glimpses of greatness, but which lacks cohesion and doesn’t quite rise to its potential.

Despite a few noticeable setbacks, it's ape-solutely bananas just how well Rare's latest crossover expansion harnesses the spirit and mood of a bygone adventuring era.
