Rise & Shine Review

Beautiful visuals and smart boss fights come together to make this indie run and gun something special, but it's certainly not without its faults. Plus it's kind of similar to Dark Souls.

Feist Review

Difficulty is certainly subjective. While one person may struggle for hours on a game, another may breeze through it. Feist is one such game that fits this criteria. Dare you play and risk the frustration?

Dead Rising 4 Review

Taking some of the best aspects of Dead Rising 3 and combining them with Frank West sounds like a perfect match. At times it is, but for all the improvements that Capcom has added, there are a number of missed opportunities.

The Crew: Calling All Units Review

The latest expansion for The Crew allows players to enrol in the police force for the first time. However, as fun as the police chases can be, the missions and new content seems quite limited.

Steep Review

Steep was a surprise announcement at Ubisoft's E3 conference this year, seeing the publisher take the ailing snow sports genre off piste to new, open-world horizons. A bold move for sure, but has it paid off?

Furi Review

Picture that one boss through which you desperately parried and dodged, only to be wiped out by an insane attack that defied your reflexes. Furi takes that heart-hammering frustration and makes a whole game out of it.

Earth's Dawn Review

A good, solid and fun title that is just a few niggles short of being a great title. Perfect for dropping in and out of, and hard not to enjoy in short bursts. Crafting and skill tree is surprisingly deep for such an action title.

By now, all of us should be well acquainted with remasters. Recently, another was added to the list. Darksiders 2 got the treatment last year but now the original has been polished up. Is it worthy of the title "Warmastered"?

Saturday Morning RPG Review

Since Saturday Morning RPG is a video game that is not shy about paying homage to the cheesiness and outrageousness of decades past, we're willing to accept, embrace and even love this cliche.

Slain: Back from Hell Review

I sympathize with Bathoryn, the protagonist of Slain: Back from Hell. Many nights I'm also crudely awakened from a peaceful slumber to dispatch foul demons and free the land of their stench.

WRC 6 Review

WRC 6 is a title that is clearly aimed at fans of the sport, making the rally experience fun and enjoyable regardless of driver level. It's not quite as hardcore as Dirt Rally, but this is for the fans and not the drivers.

One Hundred Ways Review

One Hundred Ways is a mobile puzzler ported to Xbox, and reminds us of the dark side of choosing not to curate a digital games store. It's totally avoidable unless you want a somewhat easy, but boring 1000 G.
