Call of Cthulhu review: A horror tale crafted with love

Call of Cthulhu review: Strange cults
Call of Cthulhu is a deeply unsettling investigation that perfectly captures the spirit of the source material and the pen-and-paper RPG. It’s no secret horror fans love a good Lovecraftian story. It’s also not much of a secret that video games have been trying to capitalize on that love far too many times, often unsuccessfully. The latest game to channel the...

Rimworld review: Build, fight and replace limbs to survive

Rimworld review
Despite a steep learning curve and a sometimes difficult to grasp user interface, Rimworld's interesting scenarios and stories make it more than worth the effort. Rimworld is a strategy and base-management indie title developed by Ludeon Studios. The game has been in Steam Early Access for nearly five years now, but as of October 17, it finally earned the status of...

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout review: Overshadowing the competition

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout Battle Royale
Even though Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is the trillionth entry in the series, it still manages to spice things up with Blackout simply by doing Battle Royale better. The annual Call of Duty title is upon us. Despite the rotation between three different development studios, the series was starting to tread the same ground, with each iteration feeling...

My Memory of Us review: A story you won’t forget

My Memory of Us
My Memory of Us tells a compelling story with endearing visuals that make up for its dull, forgettable gameplay. As a Jewish person of Polish descent, I grew up listening to stories about the Holocaust from my late Grandfather. He was in his early teens when Germany invaded Poland in 1939. Miraculously, he survived the war and even took part...

The Gardens Between review: Friends till the end

The Gardens Between review
A touching story, fun but unchallenging puzzles and charming graphics make The Gardens Between a perfect game “for the whole family.” The Gardens Between is a game about friendship in its purest, most innocent form. It’s a journey through the memories of two childhood friends, turning even the smallest of moments into a beautiful puzzle for you to solve and experience....

Megaquarium review: Plunge into aquarium management

Megaquarium
Megaquarium is a deep and challenging simulator where you design aquariums without much concern to what goes on on the other side of the glass. Megaquarium is a management strategy game by Twice Circled, an indie studio that already brought us similar games like Big Pharma. At first glance, the game seems like a stripped-down mobile title, with its simple graphics and...

We Happy Few review: And then there were fewer

We Happy Few review - Characters
We Happy Few delivers a nice story with a creepy atmosphere, but the slow survival gameplay doesn't grab your attention long enough to make it to the end. We Happy Few, the new game from Compulsion Games, is set in a world where Nazi Germany won World War 2. We've seen this premise many times before, but unlike most alternative timelines,...

This Is the Police 2 review: Bad cop, dull cop

This Is the Police 2 review
This Is the Police 2's compelling story and intriguing concept aren't enough to keep your interest when the weak combat and dull resource management slow down the pace to a crawl. Everyone's favorite corrupted cop simulator is back for round 2 with This is the Police 2. Handle multiple difficult moral choices as you consider the "best" way to run your...

Dead Cells review: Death is only the beginning

Dead Cells features a great sense of progress and responsive combat. Better soundtrack and enemy designs would have made it even greater. If at first you don't succeed, die, die again. Dead Cells is a new experience every time you die, with "death as progress" being the general guiding principle. It's incredibly fun every time. It's been in Steam Early Access for...

Flipping Death review: The puzzles are to die for

Flipping Death review
Flipping Death is funny with a lot of clever puzzles to solve in entertaining ways. The annoying controls almost kill it, but creativity wins in the end. Flipping Death is about death, loss and second chances. But it’s also a game about possessing a seagull and crapping into a pot of spaghetti. It’s this contrast alone that make Flipping Death worth...
