The Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 4 review: Life and Death

This review covers the latest episode in an ongoing season, and may contain minor spoilers. Death is better than zombification, but life is the best option of all. Even in a hellhole of a world; even with rotting corpses hunting you down every path, salivating for your flesh; even when you have to...

Early Access Review: Sunless Sea

This is an Early Access Review, in which we hope to help you decide whether or not it's worth jumping into a game before it's officially complete. When describing Sunless Sea, you might refer to its text-heavy visual novel elements, or its myriad of RPG-like, story-building choices. It's a...

Light review: Standing in shadow

Light, from developer Just A Pixel and published by Worms studio Team17, is a top-down, minimalist stealth game that calls to mind the likes of Monaco, Mark of the Ninja and Hotline Miami. Unfortunately, it never hits its notes as expertly as those games do. Neither great nor particularly bad, it...

Sniper Elite 3 review: War and pieces

Sniper Elite 3 marvels in its own destruction, continuing the franchise's adoration of slow motion bullets and the highlighting of a target's gooey innards. It glorifies not war, but something worse: Nearly every shot fired. This is the game's great fault: that it only has a single trick, an almost...

MouseCraft review: Pretty Gouda

If you were to ask me if MouseCraft is any good, I'd probably respond, "it's okay." It's nothing special, I'd say. "A decent puzzle game," I would call it, "but nothing spectacular." Having completed all 80 levels of MouseCraft, I think I stand by that recommendation, but it needs an addendum. ...

The Wolf Among Us 'Cry Wolf' review: Ever After

"You know, you're not as bad as everyone says." Words to those effect are said twice to Sheriff Bigby Wolf during "Cry Wolf," the final chapter of The Wolf Among Us. The first time, it's a sneer hurled across a room, dripping with derision. The second time, it's a salve for wounded feelings,...

Shovel Knight review: Heaps and bounds

Shovel Knight has my number. It's laser-focused on children of the 8-bit era, blending elements of multiple games from Capcom's halcyon days on the Nintendo Entertainment System. The most prominent influences are the Mega Man series and DuckTales, some of the best action platformers the NES had to...

EA Sports UFC review: Jon 'Barebones' Jones

As the first official UFC game handled by Electronic Arts, EA Sports UFC has a lot to prove. Comparisons to THQ's now defunct UFC Undisputed series are unavoidable. The final game in that series, UFC Undisputed 3, proved that Ultimate Fighting's brand of mixed martial arts isn't just about combat,...

Valiant Hearts: The Great War review: Friends in low places

Valiant Hearts: The Great War treads surely and lightly through the grimmest of places. It sends you digging into the trenches of World War 1, but knows that leaving you to wallow in the mud and blood forever does not grant it emotional maturity. For every dour moment in Valiant Hearts, for every...

Entwined on PS4 puts you in charge of two souls: The left analog stick controls a soul depicted as a fish, while the right analog stick controls a soul depicted as a bird. You guide these two creatures through an ethereal tunnel, collecting memory fragments until the two can come together to form a...
