Furi Review

This stylish action game is all about memorizing the attack pattern of challenging bosses and the result is a mesmerizing experience that’s both style and substance, but it’s sadly marred by an unforgiving difficulty. Independent developer The Game Bakers asks a simple question: what if there was a game that …

Rayman Origins Review

Rayman Origins is a gorgeous 2D platformer that always offers a challenge and represents a reinvention for the series. Forget everything you know about Rayman. The series has been around for a while, but it hasn’t stayed relevant like other 3D platformers (such as Super Mario Bros, Banjo-Kazooie or Ratchet …

Sunset Overdrive Review

Sunset Overdrive’s juvenile attitude and repetitive nature makes this a fun, yet forgettable Xbox One game. Games that come out early in a console’s life cycle are usually developed to show the capabilities of the new machine and little else. To a certain extent, Sunset Overdrive, the latest endeavor by …

The Crew Review

The Crew might be one of the most lavishly produced racing games ever made, but it provides and unconvincing, uneven and repetitive experience. The Crew is a racing game with one of the most engrossing concepts in quite some time: what if you could race from coast to coast and …

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Review

Blood Dragon is a hilarious, loud and mindlessly fun expansion that hits all the right notes. An 80s aesthetic, references to 8-bit games and action movies, neon-soaked environments and an action hero who never takes himself too seriously. If I told you that those are the main qualities of a …

Outlast Review

Thanks to its weapon-free gameplay and tense atmosphere, Outlast delivers a genuinely terrifying experience. There have been several horror games over the years, but only a few of them belong in the pantheon on seminal titles you’d want to play. Some of them include Resident Evil 2, Eternal Darkness and, …

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Review

A decidedly slow pace and a strong focus on puzzles might not have been the best design choices, making Revelations 2 an entertaining but unremarkable Resident Evil game. Resident Evil: Revelations didn’t reinvent the franchise in any meaningful way, but it did reinvigorate it. Revelations 2 uses the same episodic …

Halo 3 ODST Review

There are some glaring omissions in this digital version of the game, but Halo 3 ODST’s campaign is well worth playing if you’re into the space opera’s lore. What would a Halo game where you didn’t play as Master Chief be like? That’s the question that famed developer Bungie tried …

Outland Review

The core ideas behind Outland feel fresh and entertaining at first, but predictable level design and frustrating boss encounters hurt the experience. For a platformer to stand out in this day and age, the game has to do something quite inventive either from a visual or gameplay standpoint, preferably both. …

Final Fantasy V Review

Even if you choose it over the clearly superior Game Boy Advance version, Final Fantasy V on the PSone is a JRPG worth playing. Each Final Fantasy game from the main series added something new from a gameplay perspective: some games included the active time battle system, others changed the …
