Explosion Network's Reviews

Michonne's mental battles make for the most interesting part in this first episode. But with only two left and with the characters being as lackluster as they are, you're left with a lot to desire from this Telltale miniseries.

This game shows signs of a true classic already, and it's easy to see the elements of a breakout hit over the 2021/2022 period.

2 / 10.0 - Martha is Dead
Feb 25, 2022

There's a much better game here if it focused on the photography mechanics, trauma exploration and ghost stories. Instead, it’s a game bogged down in many different directions. I don't think this game, much like developer LKA's last game, Town of Light, handles mental health in the best way, but there's a somewhat interesting story here. It's just so boring to get through.

2.5 / 10.0 - In Nightmare
Mar 30, 2022

If I'm being honest, I was glad it ate my save file and gave me a legit reason not to play it anymore.

I don't know who, in my right mind, I would recommend Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance to.

3.5 / 10.0 - Ikai
Apr 11, 2022

I couldn't help but keep finding elements and ideas I wished could have been built upon in a better game, which kept my attention enough and gave me a reason to see the story to the finish. Still, there's nothing scary here, and it's just frustrating, tedious, and a major letdown.

3.5 / 10.0 - SkateBIRD
Sep 20, 2021

I can't get past just how anti-fun the controls, mission design and world design are. Aesthetically it's perfect, I love it, but it seems most of the effort has gone into nailing the cute gifs and not the slick heelflips.

3.5 / 10.0 - Little Reaper
Jul 21, 2020

This is one of those times it sucks to have to give a bad review to a game. I wanted to love this game. Little Reaper has a lot of cool ideas but none of them come together.

Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy my time and cannot recommend it as a must-play. I am unsure if anime fans might find more enjoyment in being able to interact with the world, but it is hard for me to see that as the saving grace for this game.

4 / 10.0 - In My Shadow
Feb 12, 2022

At first, the game was fun, but the frustrations and lack of polish showed through early.

If there are some patches to fix the bugs and technical issues, it could be recommended on sale, but until then I cannot suggest anyone play this game.

4 / 10.0 - Fight Crab
Aug 9, 2020

Fight Crab is for a very, very niche audience and if that’s you, you’ll know it. This includes Twitch streamers and Youtubers looking for an easily emotive game, this is sure to be a content making machine.

It'll take you less than four hours to finish The Midnight Sanctuary and at times it is a struggle to see it through, especially that first chapter, but when it gets into the plot there is something interesting here using Japan's history with Christianity as the backbone of a supernatural thriller.

While there may be some who enjoy this, most who play this hoping to get another taste of what they got with Tales of the Borderlands will feel let down

5 / 10.0 - We Are OFK
Aug 18, 2022

There are many things I liked about We Are OFK, from the characters to the music, the art direction and the thematic ideas that hit, and as a project, I am in love with the idea. I can only hope there's more of this, music, game and add some merch to come. But the disconnect the text messages caused me felt like being brutally ripped out of the experience; I began to roll my eyes when a phone icon popped up on the screen.

Deep down, you know if you are the audience for a game with the title DEEEER Simulator: Your Average Everyday Deer Game. It's fun for a short period, but you're quickly left with no reason to return. Although I think DLC is coming, I'm not sure when.

The more I played the game, the less magical it felt.

5 / 10.0 - Night Book
Jul 28, 2021

It'll take you less than an hour to finish one playthrough of Night Book, and the premise is engaging enough that I wanted to see where it was going, however, this isn't a scary game, something anyone wanting to play Night Book will be disappointed to hear.

Although Bright Memory is utter nonsense, in a good way, it is still just a gloried tech-demo
