Lining up a shot on an opponent with ice magic

Spellbreak Review

Magical combat is a new take on battle royale, but inconsistent battles and match pacing disappoint

HoloVista Review

HoloVista combines hidden objects, visual novels, and synthwave horror into a package that's totally worth grabbing on your phone.
Crash Bandicoot 4 Preview Image

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time Review

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time carries on Crash's story as time-space is in trouble again. Toys for Bob have added a lot to this new Crash and while a lot of it works really well, what doesn't work does let the package down. Crash fans will still enjoy even for the new adventure.
Escape the Dark Sector

Escape The Dark Sector Review

The challenge level of Escape the Dark Sector won't be for everyone. If you don't like easy wins, and enjoy simple mehcanics, tactical choices and a deep sense of cooperative gameplay, then this tight package of a game will be for you. It's easy to teach and quick to play, and those who enjoy a challenge will find great satisfaction in multiple attempts to win.
Drake Hollow Base

Drake Hollow Review

Drake Hollow is beautiful and adorable, but its combat mechanics and repetitive structure become frustrating.
Yacht Rock Components

Yacht Rock Board Game Review

While not overly complicated, Yacht Rock brings the theme to this fun, light party game.
super mario 3d all stars

Super Mario 3D All-Stars Review

All three of these games are representative of why Super Mario is such a great series. Though the ports for 64 and Sunshine have a few flaws, Galaxy feels absolutely perfect on the Switch.
Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia

Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia Review

Unless you're a young child or a massive Trollhunters fan, avoid this boring, unoriginal game at all costs
The main logo for Cyber Hook

Cyber Hook Review

Cyber Hook has an insanely satisfying core gameplay loop. Unfortunately, it doesn't have much else to offer.
techraptor pendragon

Pendragon Review

Pendragon is a game of both strategy and story, offering a different kind of gameplay experience while digging into historical mythos.
Serious Sam 4 review grannies

Serious Sam 4 Review

Serious Sam 4 succeeds where it needs to, and fails where it's not really all that important. An unchanging series that is a must for fans.
The Princess Bride Adventure Book Game

The Princess Bride Adventure Book Game Review

Fans of the movie will get the most out of The Princess Bride Adventure Book Game, even as a collection piece after they’ve played through it. Playing the game will inspire players to either watch the movie again or watch it for the first time. There isn’t a lot of replayability, and while it was a blast to play through all 6 chapters, it won’t be a game that is played regularly. But just like a good classic movie, when you’re reminded of a quote, or you remember the movie and it makes you smile, then it will almost certainly find its way back onto your tabletop
Doraemon Story of Seasons Header

Doraemon: Story of Season Review

Doraemon: Story of Seasons is a very cute anime-style farming simulator that remains fun and relaxing from beginning to end.
Hades

Hades Review

Hades perfectly blends high-octane action with roguelike randomization to deliver an exhilirating experience that never lets up.
Struggling key art

Struggling Review

Struggling is a bizarre, hilarious and thoroughly entertaining adventure that makes the most of its relatively simple graphics and gameplay
Necromunda: Underhive Wars

Necromunda: Underhive Wars Review

Necromunda: Underhive Wars is a solid port of the tabletop game with a great campaign system, currently hampered by poor AI and crashing and save loss issues.
A view of the board game Pendulum

Pendulum Review

This real-time worker placement game brings a unique twist to a well-established genre.
13 Sentinels Aegis Rim Preview Image

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Review

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim pairs together a sci-fi anime storyline told from 13 different perspectives about giant Mech battles and time travel, with arcade strategy combat as you seek to protect your city. While convoluted at times 13 Sentinels delivers an incredible story.
The main logo and artwork for BPM: Bullets Per Minute

BPM: Bullets Per Minute Review

BPM: Bullets Per Minute has nothing new to offer but its rhythm-based combat. Luckily, that combat is immensely satisfying, even when the surrounding structure can feel a touch empty.
New Super Lucky's Tale - Key Art

New Super Lucky's Tale Review

A fun game with some updates that make it feel incredibly smooth compared to the original version. Light on the challenge, but large on character, the game is still worth playing.
Mask of Mists - Key Art

Mask of Mists Review

While it's too short to call epic, it's an excellent fantasy adventure. Just don't expect fun combat or a deep story.
 Peril on Gorgon Review

The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon Review

Peril on Gorgon tells a dark and mature story that kept me enthralled once the ball got rolling. The asteroid itself is a fun area to explore and is rather sizable. The only downsides were the few side quests and underwhelming armor and weapons.
Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 Preview Image

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 Review

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 is a must buy for THPS fans, and an incredible entry point for those new to the franchise. Even if you're not a fan of skateboarding it's hard not to have fun working towards campaign goals.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning Review

Divorced from its original chaotic development, Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning feels like a remix of old gaming trends that are pleasant, if a bit generic.
