Unscored - Battlezone (VR)
Oct 5, 2016

Battlezone looks good and controls well, but offline there’s nothing to think about besides shoot, shoot, shoot, which in this case just doesn’t provide enough of a good time to be enjoyable for long.

Unscored - Battleborn
May 2, 2016

I've enjoyed most of Battleborn's campaign during my initial playthrough, though it's mostly due to the handiwork of the insane playable characters than the drab enemies and stages. The unlocks both near (in-match leveling) and far (unlocking new characters) have kept me anticipating each new campaign level attempt, though I wish said campaign were just a bit more exciting and varied. Hopefully some time with competitive multiplayer will make my upgrades and unlocks come even faster.

Unscored - Godfall
Nov 11, 2020

I’m enjoying Godfall, even if it’s not doing much to wow me and the repetition of its missions is wearing a bit thin. It’s got some fun and satisfying combat, a few genuinely novel mechanics, and graphics that range from absolutely gorgeous to a little over the top – but unless its thin story morphs into more than an excuse to go stab stuff, the grindable action-looter structure doesn't seem like it has enough variety to sustain its otherwise expansive customization.

Sorry, rugby fans, this is a horrible, rushed release punted out the door in time for the World Cup.

FIFA 23 on Switch is a prime example of minimal effort for maximum profit.

Postal 4: No Regerts is cringingly juvenile and painful to play in between all the times it's hard crashing.

2 / 10.0 - CrossfireX
Feb 16, 2022

CrossfireX's multiplayer modes aren't worth the price you'll pay…and it's free-to-play.

2 / 10.0 - NERF Legends
Dec 1, 2021

Nerf Legends is a broken, painful slog that you shouldn't even consider playing as a joke.

FIFA 22: Legacy Edition on Nintendo Switch is another infuriating release in the series.

2 / 10.0 - Waking
Jun 17, 2020

Waking tries to take the best of many different genres but creates a horrible mess of clashing, ugly parts.

2 / 10.0 - The Culling 2
Jul 14, 2018

The Culling 2 is nothing more than a weak imitation of PUBG and H1Z1.

2 / 10.0 - Rugby 15
Dec 4, 2014

Rugby 15 has more bugs than Starship Troopers and is messier than school-yard mugby.

2.7 / 10.0 - Fighter Within
Nov 21, 2013

Shallow, unresponsive, and unoriginal, The Fighter Within embodies the worst of what Kinect has to offer.

2.8 / 10.0 - Natural Doctrine
Oct 15, 2014

With its unfair gameplay and messy combat, Natural Doctrine is nothing more than a tedious, rage-inducing nightmare.

3 / 10.0 - CrossfireX
Feb 14, 2022

CrossfireX's pair of single-player shooter campaigns are sloppy, soulless, and mercifully brief.

Dated design, clunky multiplayer systems, and unacceptable load times make playing Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition a terrific chore.

Cooking Mama: Cookstar is a stale, undercooked simulator that needed a lot more time in the oven.

Underworld Ascendant is a buggy, repetitive, and boring mess of an RPG.

Read full review

Clumsy, superficial, and in many ways fundamentally broken, Crisis On the Planet of the Apes is an often infuriating VR game that plays like a bad arcade rail shooter from the early ‘90s. Far from reaching the artistic heights of the rebooted film series in whose world it takes place, it takes a silly, action-heavy approach to the material that doesn't respect your intelligence. It's perhaps the worst thing to happen to the Apes franchise since Mark Wahlberg saw the monkeyfied Lincoln Memorial.

3 / 10.0 - Alekhine's Gun
Mar 11, 2016

Like the chess move it's named after, Alekhine's Gun puts its pieces in the right places, but then it fails to follow through with any quality or grace. It's hard to feel accomplished after pulling off a clean kill when the targets lack the competence to even defend themselves.
