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...

Mothergunship review: We’re going to build a bigger gun

Mothergunship review
Blasting evil robots with huge guns is extremely fun in Mothergunship, but the game holds back when it's time to craft your own weapons. I take a look around the boss room. All I see is a  hole in the floor, so naturally, I jump in. "Weird. Shouldn't there be like, a boss inside the boss room?", I think to...

Garage: Bad Trip review: Zombies, drugs and heads will roll

Garage: Bad Trip review - zombie horde
Undead, pixelated gore and intense action make Garage: Bad Trip a solid shooter for horror fans. And no, it's not "Hotline Miami with zombies." Garage: Bad Trip is a gory, raw and often crude top-down shooter for fans of the VHS era of horror and splatterpunk. It draws you in with the campy premise of a stoner janitor fighting the undead in an...

Wreckfest review: Hope you have insurance

Wreckfest demolition derby
A party of twisted metal and screeching wheels. Crash physics haven't felt this good for a long time, but they sure looked better. We had a lot of arcade racing games in these past few weeks, but we haven't had a proper demolition derby for a while. Luckily, Wreckfest is here to make amends for the aggressive racing subgenre. Wreckfest is not...

Moonlighter review: Too busy earnin’

Moonlighter review
With pretty pixel graphics and great sound, Moonlighter is the right kind of rogue-lite game that keeps you going for "one more round." Even before beating my first boss, I have already managed to gather countless treasures from a golem dungeon, warp inside a forest dungeon, expand my store into a freaking Walmart, steal a grimoire from under an evil...

Antigraviator review: Ludicrous speed ahead

Antigraviator review
Antigraviator is a fast racing game with no speed limit, and it can make speed feel great. Unfortunately, that's the only thing it knows how to do. I love racing games, but my favorite subgenre is the not-so-realistic futuristic racing, like F-Zero, Wipeout, and 2016's Redout. It's no wonder then that I was very much looking forward to Antigraviator, an indie racing game developed by Cybernetic...

Vampyr review: I’m a doctor, not a fighter

Vampyr review
Vampyr tells a compelling story in an intriguing world, but the frustrating and frankly unnecessary combat sucks the life out of it. A vampire doctor sounds like either a terrible career choice or a character from a cheesy Korean drama. But it is also the defining characteristic of the main protagonist of Vampyr, the new title from Life is Strange...
