Unscored - Splatoon 2
Jul 18, 2017

Splatoon 2 builds on what its successor did so well, with a much larger base of assets that has allowed Nintendo to provide more to consumers right off the bat.

In the end, The Master Chief Collection brings a better version of the first Anniversary, a similar treatment for Halo 2 producing even more impressive results, and tweaked versions of Halo 3 and 4 for good measure. That's a no-brainer for both singleplayer and cooperative fans, but the weight of the multiplayer – re-capturing the gameplay and maps of Halo 2 to the finest detail – can't be underestimated.

Unscored - Thief
Mar 4, 2014

Though this might seem incongruous with the rest of the review, Thief is definitely a game that's worth playing. It gets a recommendation, despite the final score and its many, many, many flaws, because the stealth gameplay really is great, and with pure stealth games becoming such a rarity it's gratifying to find a game that really brings the art of thieving to life.

The final challenge will be a fun throwback for Flight Simulator X fans, as players are tasked with landing their aircraft on a moving carrier ship's deck, just as Top Gun's Navy pilots do.

It should be pointed out that Scorn is a day one Xbox Game Pass game, and that is really the only way to justify playing it. Otherwise, Scorn is an experience that even the most diehard horror game fans should skip.

CrossfireX is a complete misfire with poor controls, painfully generic campaigns, and an uninspired multiplayer experience.

Flow Weaver is a virtual reality escape room experience with a dull story that doesn't understand what makes escape rooms fun.

A broken mess of a game, Darksiders 3 is a sequel that's dramatically reduced in scope, with mundane combat and a story that feels like the series is running in place.

Robomodo's attempt to resurrect the long-dormant Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series is not a success — in fact, fans of previous games will likely see it as a slap in the face.

Ultimately, Land of Screens may serve as a helpful reminder for a few players, but most people already know that it’s important to look up from their devices sometimes. As a non-developer, it’s difficult to see how Serenity Forge could have relayed its message in a more engaging manner, but there are developers who have successfully sneaked a societal call to action into their games. This is usually accomplished by focusing on gameplay first and sprinkling the message throughout for people to uncover themselves. Instead, Serenity Forge has made the entirety of Land of Screens about the message and only marginally concentrated on anything else. This has resulted in a flat experience that lacks the ability to inspire.

Aliens: Fireteam Elite has an interesting premise: co-op shooter set in the Alien universe where players must push their abilities, refine their build, and face a continuous onslaught of enemies. In reality, though, it’s a bug-filled slog that proves to be a one-trick pony.
