Flickering Myth's Reviews

7 / 10.0 - The Quarry
Jun 13, 2022

A significant return to form for Supermassive’s interactive cinematic horror games, The Quarry feels like a true spiritual successor to Until Dawn even with persistent camera and control issues.

If you can accept its unvarnished edges, Evil Dead: The Game is a fiendishly addictive asymmetric multiplayer game, crafted with a clear love for Sam Raimi’s iconic horror franchise.

Mar 18, 2022

Not a terrible way to kill a few hours and certainly better than most of Wales Interactive’s recent FMV projects, but still sullied by presentational flaws and unremarkable storytelling.

7.5 / 10.0 - FAR: Changing Tides
Feb 21, 2022

FAR: Changing Tides modestly scales-up the original’s minimalist adventure game mechanics for another brief, relaxing jaunt that serves as a welcome antidote to the noise of AAA blockbuster excess.

6 / 10.0 - Solar Ash
Dec 6, 2021

As maddening as it is beautiful, Solar Ash's gorgeous aesthetic is thoroughly undermined by traversal mechanics that are neither fun nor intuitive.

3.5 / 10.0 - Bloodshore
Nov 3, 2021

Eschewing its blatantly campy potential in favour of an effort-devoid mess of ideas and tones, Bloodshore is as disappointing as it is utterly forgettable.

House of Ashes does just enough to deliver the basic goods for horror fans, marking a modest step forward for the underwhelming franchise.

4.5 / 10.0 - Night Book
Jul 27, 2021

It takes itself far too seriously to be appreciable as a self-aware throwback to the campy origins of the FMV subgenre, but is too daft and cheaply produced to actually be taken seriously at all.

6 / 10.0 - BIOMUTANT
May 24, 2021

Despite its appealing open-world and charmingly oddball characters, Biomutant’s jank-heavy gameplay, short length, and over-familiar grab-bag of RPG tropes make for a frustratingly lukewarm experience.

6 / 10.0 - Before Your Eyes
Apr 6, 2021

Before Your Eyes almost loses its intriguing story and sumptuous aesthetic beneath an unpersuasive eye-tracking gimmick that's more irritating than boldly forward-thinking. Mercifully, though, there is the option to ditch the blinking and just play through it with a mouse.

More than anything else, WRC 9 is a tantalising demonstration of the DualSense controller’s potential to elevate well-crafted experiences into truly exceptional ones.

If remaining a fundamentally flawed experience, Observer: System Redux is a gorgeously nutty dive down the sci-fi horror rabbit-hole, and an impressive show-piece for your new hardware of choice.

7.5 / 10.0 - The Pathless
Nov 21, 2020

If made from familiar parts, The Pathless nevertheless delivers the goods as a fast-paced action-adventure romp and a mostly unspoken depiction of the bond between human and animal.

8.5 / 10.0 - Astro's Playroom
Nov 20, 2020

Astro’s Playroom is an outstanding introduction to the PS5’s key features and one you’d be a fool to miss under the pretense it’s simply another tepid, low-effort launch day freebie.

7.5 / 10.0 - DiRT 5
Nov 3, 2020

It may not reinvent the (steering) wheel, but Dirt 5 dishes up traditional racing thrills with a deft sense of fun.

The biggest issue with Little Hope is that it doesn’t really function particularly well as a horror experience that gets under the skin, filled with tepid, predictable jump scares and been-there-done-that plotting.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is a dizzying, glorious marriage of old and new sensibilities, confirming the series is in safe, even inspired hands. The Bandicoot is back.

If Mafia: Definitive Edition‘s gameplay hasn’t moved far beyond 2002, it’s still a gorgeous, reverent glow-up which should satisfy fans both old and new.

5 / 10.0 - Serious Sam 4
Sep 24, 2020

Serious Sam 4 feels frustratingly stuck in the past, using the guise of nostalgia to offer up a sub-par, grossly dated product.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds delivers shallow yet fitfully enjoyable, bite-sized mayhem, even as it feels unmistakably slung together in a hurry.
