Toren Second Opinion

It's all an allusion

Toren

HIGH Answering the knocking on the well lid.

LOW The "Beauty" dream, which was pointlessly frustrating thanks to bad platforming and inane enemies.

WTF Why put "interact" and "attack" on the same button when the final battle requires correct distinction between these actions and ten controller inputs are free?

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood Review

Schutzstaffel!

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood

HIGH The unexpected end of the cable car sequence.

LOW So they've gone from letting me play 2% of Wolfenstein 3D to including 15%? Why not unlock the whole game, Machine Games?

WTF I cannot claim to have expected that final boss.

Fat Chicken Review

Lovingly Plated, but Raw

Fat Chicken

HIGH Happening on the right design and the right timing of early launches to get every animal to the goal in a huge level.

Project Root Review

A Shoot ‘em up Looking to Branch Out

So long, and thanks for all the fish


Sayonara Umihara Kawase
