Phantom Doctrine Review

Sometimes video games feel like call and response: One developer makes a great game, and another team (or two... or five) create their own based on that idea but with key additions or refinements — new mechanical twists, a change in scope, or a story...

We Happy Few Review

We Happy Few has crafted a story worthy of its eerie and drug-induced madcap setting (which is extremely welcome, as it was geared heavily towards survival and crafting in Early Access). The stories told of its misfit characters are bleak, witty, ten...

Stardew Valley Review - Updated for 2018

 Each time I start up a new farm in Stardew Valley or return to my 100-hour save on PC, I feel like I’m going home. There’s a comfort in Stardew Valley that I’ve rarely found in other games. The music that changes with each season perfectly fits the...

Monster Hunter: World PC Review

Monster Hunter: World initially seemed destined to be one of those game of the year candidates that, due to a January release, would be forgotten about when all the lists rolled around 12 months later. Thankfully, the promised PC port  has finally ap...

Overcooked 2 Review

I’m relieved to announce that the time my wife and I spent together in Overcooked 2’s increasingly chaotic and always amusing kitchens has not resulted in divorce. It has, in fact, been great fun. The sequel to one of my favorite indie games of 2016...

Dead Cells Review

On my second run through Dead Cells I made it to the last level and was pretty sure I had it figured out. 63 runs later, when I finally took down the boss and stepped into my post-game replay, I’m one-hundred-percent sure I’m just now starting to und...

Chasm Review

What if you could play Castlevania over and over and never stop being surprised? That’s what Chasm tries to deliver: a full Metroidvania where every new game has its own unique, randomized map. Its RPG-elements and awesome variety of beautifully anim...

WarioWare Gold Review

WarioWare Gold, the latest release in the offbeat Nintendo series that takes the expression ‘a quick game is a good game’ to its most literal extreme, is a greatest hits slab with substantial appeal for newcomers. It’s just a shame that its assortmen...

Marvel Powers United VR Review

Starting up Marvel Powers United VR for the first time is like stepping into a childhood dream. As I played through the prologue, throwing Cap’s shield and listening to Deadpool and Wolverine bicker, I was filled with glee at how good everyone looked...

No Man's Sky NEXT Review

With its latest update, called Next, No Man’s Sky has rounded off enough of its rough edges and piled in enough content that exploring its weird galaxy is usually rewarding. It’s definitely a treadmill, though, and while there are countless upgrades...

The Banner Saga 3 Review

Stoic Games’ denouement to their beautifully animated, Viking-inspired epic contains, in heaping doses, more of everything that made the first two turn-based tactics games so strong. The Banner Saga 3 offers a bloody and satisfying conclusion to the...

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 Review

The excellent Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 is a tough act to follow, but Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 doesn’t even come close. It contains X5 through X8, which range in quality from good all the way down to awful. At least Capcom put a lot of lov...
