Cyberpunk 2077 on PlayStation 4 is Still Busted After a Year

revisiting14 December 2021

After less than a year, I decided to revisit the last-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 to see if anything has changed. The conclusion was painful: not much or almost nothing.

Chorus Review: Satisfying Combat Distracts From A Lackluster Protagonist

Chorus Review: Satisfying Combat Distracts From A Lackluster Protagonist

game review03 December 2021

Chorus misses out on the opportunity to let the player decide who the protagonist is, choosing instead to force a dramatic end-of-the-world scenario on the player that cheapens the ability to explore and take on side-missions. Read our review.

A mix of old and new, Battlefield 2042 features more maps, more pomp, and more customization tools. But is more always better?

What can you expect from a Call of Duty game besides another campaign mode, more multiplayer, and zombies? Hopefully enough to warrant another purchase.

Forza Horizon 5 Review - The King Becomes Emperor

game review04 November 2021

The best racing game just became even better, and it doesn’t look like anything is going to claim the crown from Forza Horizon 5 anytime soon. However, “the best” doesn’t mean “perfect.” The competitors still have a chance to seize the throne.

game review28 October 2021

Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water (or Fatal Frame) brings a supernatural story to all platforms this Halloween, but a multitude of factors keep the game from reaching its full potential.

If you had the power to find out how someone was feeling, would you try to help them or worry about your own problems instead? This question is one of many Alex Chen faces in another great entry in the Life is Strange series.

game review06 September 2021

Sometimes a break from your current reality is what you need to clear your mind and realize what’s important in life. Are you drawn to money, career, or are your friends and connecting with special people what you really yearn for?

Song of Iron Review: An Axe in Need of Polish

game review02 September 2021

Song of Iron is the result of one solo developer’s hard work and determination to turn his ideas into a video game. This is Joe Winter’s first solo project and it is truly a labor of love.

Twelve Minutes Review: Time Well Spent

Twelve Minutes Review: Time Well Spent

game review24 August 2021

Time loops make for some interesting plots, but how a film or game uses it to move the action along determines how effective it is in the end. But just remember – the clock is ticking.

Like a short-lived flower, Hoa is filled with wonder. Its levels and puzzles may be too simple for some, but the wonder it creates through art and sound could be what convinces you to play it.

Cris Tales Review: An Ode to the Best and Worst of JRPGs

game review17 August 2021

Cris Tales has a remarkably beautiful hand-drawn aesthetic, some unique time travel mechanics, and a fun and engaging fantasy world. Unfortunately, the gameplay is often bogged down by repetitive turn-based combat and excessive loading times.

Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 Review - Refurbished Classic Instead of Brand New Ride

game review13 August 2021

The game about being a car mechanic is back. It's better, it's bigger, it's prettier, but overall it's a small step in the evolution of the series, rather than a significant revolution.

Unbound Worlds Apart Review: Platforming Not For the Impatient

Unbound Worlds Apart Review: Platforming Not For the Impatient

game review04 August 2021

Unbound has familiar touchstones of other modern side-scrolling platformers: Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Limbo, Inside, Cuphead, take your pick. It’s almost a formula by now. Throw a nice color pallet, a mystical world, and boom you’ve got a game.

Blightbound Review: A Dungeon Crawler by Any Other Name

game review28 July 2021

This game won't change the world, and it's certainly not the best in its genre. It does, however, have the ability to enchant for several long hours. Some elements should be refined though. Read our Blightbound review.

Death’s Door Review: A Game Worth Dying For

game review20 July 2021

Doing a lot of things right, Death’s Door features a beautiful world and level design that rivals that of any Zelda game you’ve played. Plus you get to play as a little crow that wields a sword. What’s not to love?

This master collection hopes to make Ninja Gaiden relevant again in 2021. But for a game that really shows its age, is it a series worth revisiting?
