    When Kingdom Come was first released, I read many warnings to avoid the game until bugs were fixed. So bear in mind, my review is for the completed end product, and an experience lightened with a mod that allowed for unl... Read Full Review

    A few charming points keep it from being terrible

    Sonic Forces is not a good game. When you boil it down, it's pretty much just a semi-mediocre platformer. A few things save it, however, from being a 'bad' game.The level design is iffy, the gameplay isn't consistent, an... Read Full Review
