    The Stanley Parable

    A witty, branched, pleasant and imaginative ride.

    The game’s choice system is great and truly fresh, but the rest of gameplay supporting it is overly simplistic. The level designs are constantly intriguing and the narrator’s witty comment...

    Bastion is a fun, beautiful and soulful experience that’s more than just the sum of its individual parts.

    The gameplay is fresh enough, has a good amount of depth and is very adaptable to most of the different player’s skills and play styles there are. At the beginning it’s a relatively easy g...

    A big, great looking, frequently entertaining but seldom awe-inspiring adventure.

    The gameplay has a few welcome changes, such as a more intuitive way to switch between different items and other equipment, but some of the core mechanics feel dated and a bit clunky, specifically the...
