Return to Monkey Island Review

Return to Monkey Island returns to somewhere deep in the Caribbean for one final adventure with Guybrush, Elaine and LeChuck, and we take the plunge off the plank to see if this game can possibly live up to the 32 years of hype it has behind it. Spoiler alert - it does.

Serial Cleaners’ chance to grow brighter and bolder with neo-noir narratives, instead sees itself bogged down in run-of-the-mill nihilism that even affects the gameplay.

sunday gold frank in prologue

Sunday Gold Review

We put Sunday Gold through its paces, but find an uneven and unbalanced system, despite an interesting concept and world.

September 16, 2022 | 11:30 EDT

whateverland logo

Whateverland Review

Whateverland's fun premise and protagonist duo are overshadowed by bugs, poorly designed puzzles and shallow characters in a move that makes us say "whatever."

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection Review

TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection is a nostalgic treat for OG fans of Leo and the gang, but some of these 16-bit classics aren't all they're cooked up to be.

A landscape shot of PowerWash Simulator's cover, showcasing the titular cleaner in between a clean half with their van and a cat, and a dirty muck-ridden half.

PowerWash Simulator Review

After a promising start, PowerWash Simulator begins to expand in a way you cannot tackle feasibly, but only in scale. It’s one mechanic polished well enough to get by for a short while.

Cult of the Lamb Box Art

Cult of the Lamb Review

Cult of the Lamb is a roguelike with all the style you'd expect from a Devolver Digital release, but nothing that will keep you coming back for more.

August 10, 2022 | 11:00 EDT

Hooked on You.

Hooked On You Review

Dead by Daylight is a serious game about killers and survivors. Hooked on You flips it on its head by presenting the killers as love interests in their own dating sim!

August 10, 2022 | 11:00 EDT

An element of Lovecraft stories is the line between reality and the mindscape. This comes through in Dream Cycle, where you play as a magic student looking for her friend across dream worlds.

August 10, 2022 | 10:00 EDT

A gameplay screenshot of The Tale of Bistun, showcasing Farhad walking through the Revelations Realm with a red light in the distance.

The Tale of Bistun Review

While starting strong, The Tale of Bistun loses interest over time, leaving the story, gameplay, and characters to try and make something out of stretched-thin mechanics.

August 4, 2022 | 11:00 EDT

Frogun Official Art

Frogun Review

Frogun is a heartfelt addition to the wider Platformer genre, bringing some fun new ideas and charm to the table. It's far from a perfect game though, and its flaws hold it back from being an amazing experience.

August 2, 2022 | 09:00 EDT

A cadaver lies on the embalming table with the logo and text for The Mortuary Assistant to the right of it. Just above the text is a black figure with red eyes, looking at the camera from down the hallway.

The Mortuary Assistant Review

TechRaptor's The Mortuary Assistant review finds that the game is an immersive mix of demons, trauma, and death that makes for a scary good time.

August 2, 2022 | 08:00 EDT

Moss Book II Logo

Moss: Book II Review

Moss: Book II is an immensely respectable continuation of the previous framework while not quite ascending the fantastic heights that are within reach.

August 1, 2022 | 11:00 EDT

The title of the game on a snowy background, the cast of characters are seen on the right

South of the Circle Review

South of the Circle is packed with atmosphere, haunting vignettes, and strong themes. It is also what most players think when they imagine a walking simulator.

July 29, 2022 | 09:00 EDT

Key art of Bear and Breakfast

Bear and Breakfast Review

Bear and Breakfast is a cozy management sim about running a bed and breakfast in the woods, but as a bear.

July 28, 2022 | 10:00 EDT

Of Bird and Cage review header.

Of Bird and Cage Review

It's not fun to denigrate indie titles with unique ambitions in mind. After all, brazen ideas have a tendency to stick with us much longer than most standard fare. Although some credit is due for freshmen developer Capricia Productions, Of Bird and Cage ranks among this year's worst games.

July 23, 2022 | 11:00 EDT

Endling: Extinction Is Forever Key Art

Endling: Extinction Is Forever Review

Endling: Extinction Is Forever sees the last fox mother on earth try to keep her cubs alive in a post-apocalyptic landscape. Threats lie around every corner, but also glimmers of hope for the future.

A screenshot of the game APICO, with the player character standing next to Beetrix inside their house. The APICO logo is on the right side of the photo.

APICO Review

APICO is a beekeeping simulation based on crafting games and Minecraft mods. Overall, we enjoyed our time with APICO, but a few mechanics kept it from being a knockout.

July 18, 2022 | 10:00 EDT

escape the room

Escape Academy Review

For those missing the good old fashioned escape rooms of the pre-covid era, Escape Academy delivers a top notch set of puzzles in an interesting setting, which unfortunately isn't explored any deeper.

July 13, 2022 | 11:00 EDT

Super UFO Fighter versus

Super UFO Fighter Review

Super UFO Fighter is a party action game from developer VV-LABO and publisher Phoenixx that lets players duke it out by hoarding gachapons. The mechanics are simple and it can be pretty fun for a while, but it can lose its spark much too quickly after a few rounds.

July 13, 2022 | 11:00 EDT

three hopes

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes Review

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is an excellent hack-and-slash title that takes place within Three Houses universe.

Voodoo Detective is a hand-drawn point-and-click adventure from Short Sleeve Studio that takes players on a cultural journey on the Zo Wanga Isle. It's a great tribute to retro titles in its genre, so if you're a fan, diving into this one is definitely worth your while.

July 9, 2022 | 11:30 EDT

Two cars race into the future in Redout 2

Redout 2 Review

Redout 2 has a solid base in futuristic racing but fails to capture the imagination in so many ways.

July 9, 2022 | 11:00 EDT

Kao The Kangaroo Title Card

Kao The Kangaroo Review

A couple of console generations have passed since the last time Kao The Kangaroo hopped into the scene. While that fact may give some nostalgic vibes for fans of this less-popular platformer mascot, it'll likely wear off after extensive time with its by-the-numbers design. For such a spry, young marsupial, it's rather ironic just how quickly Kao's tired tricks lose their luster.
