    More of the same, for better or for worse.

    A well polished, cleverly designed, treat for puzzle fans.

    User Rating 6
    Solid shoot'em with an overly complicated plot.

    Although Sine Mora feels like a classic shoot'em up there is definitely a modern touch. The gameplay may just use two dimensions but the 3D visuals really add to the immersion. A key feature you would...

    User Rating 10
    Superb exploration and a finely balanced difficulty curve makes DS3 a series highlight.

    What amazes me most about the Souls' games is how they are equally complex yet simple at the same time. Your goal is to simply fight from one bond fire to the next until you reach a boss fight. Yet t...

    Clever puzzles disguised as an intense action game.

    This is why I still play random games on a whim. A while back I received a copy of 10 Second Ninja X as a PlayStation Plus subscriber. It just sat in my library, until today that is. There aren't tha...

    Impressively lengthy metroidvania with a gradual challenge.

    As a fan of side-scrollers I can definitely say I've played my far share of metroidvanias. Hollow Knight makes a clearly unique mark for itself in this genre filled with classics. Two of the things t...

    The golf game that "Everyone" needs to play.

    Among traditional sports golf really seems like a natural fit for videogames. For one thing it is "turn-based", this fact alone makes it much more accessible for players of all ages and skill levels....
