LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga main menu with all the characters

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Review

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is the magnum opus of LEGO games. It contains a meticulously detailed semi-open world that represents the exhilaration of Star Wars films. It also injects the zany, hallmark LEGO humor with a dash of innovation in combat, puzzling, and more.

Black Geyser Review Heading

Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness Review

Black Geyser is by all accounts a solid game, but it is a game born in another age, one that ultimately comes with the baggage of its forefathers.

35MM Protagonist

35MM Review

To make an unsubtle comparison, 35MM is like a picture out of focus. Sergey Noskov tries to pack an ambitious amount of stuff within the frame, but forgets what elements might be ill-fitting. When specifically focused on its funereal atmosphere, it's an interesting break from the norm; when weighing its multiple gameplay pitfalls, those strengths begin to fade.

Abermore - Key Art

Abermore Review

Abermore is a first-person stealth game in the same line as Dishonored and Thief, but does it live up to those titles?

A bounty hunter, a native, and a werewolf, standing next to the Weird West logo

Weird West Review

Wolfeye's debut game is imaginative, densely packed with emergent fun, and has some sloppy chaotic gunplay. Here is our Weird West review.

Expedition Zero - Key Art

Expedition Zero Review

Expedition Zero is a first-person survival game that tasks you with collecting samples to escape a quarantine zone in the woods.

Break through the game!

tERRORbane Review

Sometimes glitches are hidden well and other times you can't miss them. In tERRORbane, many types of bugs are shoved right in your face and it's your job to take note of each one. That, and try to save the world while you're at it.

March 31, 2022 | 11:30 EDT

The shrine maiden Naoko holding a candle with a ghost right behind her.

Ikai Review

As an exercise in solid sound design and atmosphere, Ikai's take on Japanese folklore stumbles due to shoddy English localization and a few obtuse puzzles.

A Memoir Blue

A Memoir Blue Review

A Memoir Blue is an emotional journey through a champion swimmer's relationships, career and life so far. Does it deserve the screen time? Our review:

March 25, 2022 | 01:40 EDT

Martha Is Dead Darkroom

Martha Is Dead Review

In the end, Martha Is Dead conjures up an air of missed opportunity. The WWII backdrop is incredibly realized and the horror atmosphere initially hits the right notes, but as the template becomes more routine and the surprises less interesting it grows more aimless. The few quality ideas get subsumed by the growing tedium of exploring until the stale ending gives its solemn adieu.

phantom breaker omnia review cover

Phantom Breaker: Omnia Review

Phantom Breaker: Omnia is a 2D anime fighting game from Rocket Panda Games that aims to bring back a well-loved franchise. It caters to hardcore fans of the IP as well as newcomers with its simplified controls, and offers an entertaining experience when you're looking to do some mindless bashing for a session or two.

tiny tina title

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands Review

The next installment in the Borderlands series is here, but is Tiny Tina's Wonderlands enough to keep people interested or is it a critical failure?

March 23, 2022 | 03:50 EDT

Rune Factory 5 - Key Art

Rune Factory 5 Review

Rune Factory 5 is a farming/life sim that shakes up some of the formulae of the long-running series, without losing sight of why fans love it.

March 23, 2022 | 11:30 EDT

The game's title shown over a dystopian cyberpunk city

Anno: Mutationem Review

Anno: Mutationem sports a unique 2D meets 3D artstyle and has the potential to be a fun action game if you can get through the disjointed story and uneven fights.

March 18, 2022 | 10:00 EDT

Rey Mysterio pops out of a neon-colored void in WWE 2K22's main cover art.

WWE 2K22 Review

WWE 2K22 is a solid entry in the long-running series thanks to improved gameplay and a solid suite of modes. Just don't expect a brand new WWE Universe when you load it up.

March 17, 2022 | 10:00 EDT

Key art of Tunic

Tunic Review

Developed by one-man bad Andrew Shouldice and published by Finji, Tunic pay homage to the classic Legend of Zelda games and the era of instruction manuals.

March 16, 2022 | 01:00 EDT

Time Loader's starring robot travels into the past in the game's key art.

Time Loader Review

Time Loader travels back in time for a movie-length excursion into puzzle-solving, platforming, and questionable nostalgia that will be old hat to many.

March 10, 2022 | 12:00 EST

Aztech Key Art

Aztech Forgotten Gods Review

If there's one overarching takeaway with Lienzo's third effort is that it could've been more. Aside from the soundtrack and some nostalgia-driven creative decisions, I can see this tapestry being improved – marginally or otherwise – in every other respect. That doesn’t outright disregard its accomplishments, but it does dampen my enthusiasm to recommend it, aside from genre fans. Taken as a whole, Aztech Forgotten Gods manages to stay airborne but never truly soars.

March 10, 2022 | 11:00 EST

Young Souls

Young Souls Review

Young Souls is a game with plenty of good ideas but it never really comes together to take advantage of it. While its art and tone may grip you, its tedious gameplay and lack of experimentation late-game leave me wishing for more

March 10, 2022 | 09:00 EST

gma picture of skiing and train tracks

Grand Mountain Adventure: Wonderlands Review

We check out Grand Mountain Adventure: Wonderlands, to see if this ski and snowboard extravaganza can really stick the landing or if we're revoking its ski pass.

March 9, 2022 | 08:00 EST

Key art of The Cruel King and the Great Hero

The Cruel King and the Great Hero Review

Spiritual successor to The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince, The Cruel King and the Great Hero is a JRPG with hand drawn visuals and a heartfelt story.

Life is Strange Remastered Logo

Life Is Strange Remastered Collection Review

Back when they were hitting fever pitch (early/mid 2010s), I was getting reeled into a number of episodic games. DONTNOD's Life is Strange was among them. So, when it was announced that co-developers Deck Nine and Black Tower Studios were helming a remaster duo pack of this beloved first season and prequel, Before the Storm, I had a keen interest in revisiting it. The pertinent concerns become two-fold: how these entries hold up and if enough TLC was given by current remaster standards.

March 3, 2022 | 01:05 EST

primordia horatio and crispin

Primordia Review

With a not so great Switch port, Primordia's excellent world building, gorgeous art and compelling main duo still shine through, for those willing to put up with illogical puzzles and forgettable side characters.

March 3, 2022 | 11:30 EST

Dimensional crossroads.

What Lies In The Multiverse Review

We can only wonder if there are other universes out there and how many there are... What Lies In The Multiverse is a cartoon adventure with a heart that crosses various dimensions in a story about order and chaos. Jump and puzzle your way through to your reality.

March 3, 2022 | 10:00 EST

ghostrunner game

Ghostrunner: Project_Hel Review

Project_Hel is an expansion to the original Ghostrunner. If you're looking for more hacking and slashing, Hel is at your command.

March 2, 2022 | 10:00 EST

Little Orpheus Main Logo

Little Orpheus Review

Despite branching out to a traditional genre, the chief concern with The Chinese Room's latest is gameplay yet again. Instead of getting into an argument about "walking sims" or what a game truly is this time, Little Orpheus is a case of solid audio/visual chops and a fun Cold War-era yarn weighed down by the continuous tedium of an unadventurous platformer.

March 1, 2022 | 05:46 EST

The title of Horizon Forbidden West, with Aloy traveling through a snowy mountain range

Horizon Forbidden West Review

Horizon Forbidden West is a far more confident sequel that builds on its predecessor's foundations, even if it iterates more than innovates.

Elex 2 Former Overlook

ELEX 2 Review

Lo Wang fires a railgun at a demon in Shadow Warrior 3.

Shadow Warrior 3 Review

Shadow Warrior 3 wears its inspirations on its sleeve, providing a fun boomer shooter campaign that doesn't quite live up to Lo Wang's prior adventures.

Steam Deck Review

Promising the capabilities of a PC and the form factor of a Nintendo Switch, the Steam Deck feels like a perfect fit for the gaming market. Our Review

Elden Ring - Featured Image (KEY ART)

Elden Ring Review

Elden Ring is one of the most highly-anticipated games of the year and is the spiritual successor to the famous Dark Souls series from FromSoftware.

February 23, 2022 | 10:00 EST

A man looks down sullenly at the CrossfireX logo.

CrossfireX Review

CrossfireX is a baffling first-person shooter that fails on every level, even if all you're looking for is a good time playing something bad.

February 21, 2022 | 10:00 EST

Lost Ark - Key Art

Lost Ark Review

Lost Ark is the latest MMO craze to be important to the west from South Korea, and is shaping up to be a phenomenon in its own right.

February 16, 2022 | 12:00 EST

Vertagear PL1000 Review

The Vertagear PL1000 is a great mid-range chair that is perfect for shorter gamers.

Grapple Dog Review

A pawsitively adorable 2D platformer, Grapple Dog follows Pablo and his friends as they try to recover the inventions of The Great Inventor.

The player aiming at a zombie enemy in Kingdom of the Dead

Kingdom Of The Dead Review

We take a look at Dirigo's horror FPS Kingdom of the Dead. It's got a beautiful art style, but will that be enough to sustain it?

February 10, 2022 | 12:00 EST

Boss fight in Powerslave Exhumed

Powerslave Exhumed Review

Powerslave Exhumed packs fast FPS action and nostalgic gameplay tropes into one impressive revival. Read more in our full review:

February 10, 2022 | 12:00 EST


Castle Morihisa Review

Castle Morihisa is a roguelike deckbuilder from Smokingbear Studio and Thermite Games set in a fantasy feudal Japan. It's not the most original game, but it does serve as a bit of a palate cleanser if you're looking for a roguelike deckbuilder with a different set of visuals.

February 9, 2022 | 10:00 EST

Pokemon Legends Arceus Review Preview Image

Pokemon Legends: Arceus Review

Pokemon Legends: Arceus is a massive leap forward for the franchise in terms of substance and gameplay. Improvements have been made across the board to battle mechanics, world exploration, Pokemon interactions, and more. From Pokemon enthusiast to casual fan you need to play this game.

February 8, 2022 | 11:00 EST


Sifu Review

Sifu is a tough-as-nails action game created by Sloclap. On a quest for revenge, take on droves of enemies and bosses in this fulfilling adventure.

February 6, 2022 | 07:00 EST

The world of Radlandia expands out in artwork for OlliOlli World.

OlliOlli World Review

OlliOlli World sticks the landing in terms of gameplay, but its attempt to appeal to a new generation clash with its core as a score-based arcade challenge.

February 2, 2022 | 11:00 EST

Dying Light 2 Review Preview Image

Dying Light 2 Stay Human Review

Dying Light 2 Stay Human is an entertaining game with enjoyable characters and fun parkour elements. Unfortunately, a lot doesn't hold up to scrutiny.

Flexispot BS9

Flexispot BS9 Chair Review

The Flexispot is bright, small and orange but does the chair live up to that standout look? Read our review to find out

January 31, 2022 | 12:00 EST

Summertime Madness Clock

Summertime Madness Review

Less interested in one mind-blowing new concept (a la Portal), DP Games' smaller nuances give way to what's still an engaging first-person puzzler. The noticeable drop in quality during the second half shows the clearest sign of their freshmen inexperience, but that doesn't disregard its otherwise commendable qualities.

January 31, 2022 | 11:00 EST

The Guardians of Peace Key Art

The Guardians of Peace Review

Whatever earnest intentions The Guardians of Peace has uniformly falls on deaf ears by being unabashed shovelware.

January 31, 2022 | 10:00 EST

A horde of enemies charge forward in Serious Sam: Siberian Mayhem

Serious Sam: Siberian Mayhem Review

New expandalone Serious Sam: Siberian Mayhem provides hours of old-school mayhem and proves that fans sometimes know best.

Luminous Avenger iX 2

Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX 2 Review

Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX 2 is the follow-up to the 2019 action platformer, but does it improve on its predecessor?

Sucker For Love

Sucker For Love: First Date Review

Sucker For Love: First Date is an incredibly interesting take on the visual novel genre but is it deserving of its premise? Our review

Looking out on adventure!
