The Dwarves Review

Coming Up Short

HIGH Boindil’s impromptu minecart massacre.

LOW The battle system is frequently a confusing mess.

WTF Auto-pathing that makes characters occasionally leap to their deaths.


Let it Die Review

Let it Thrive

HIGH Evolving from a ridiculously weak fighter into a nightmarish harbinger of death.

LOW Grinding for drops to improve equipment can be pretty nasty at times.

WTF Let it Die — a free-to-play title — launched without monetization.


Stereo Aereo review

This Stereo Does Not Rock

HIGH The music’s pretty good.

LOW The visuals make it tough to tell what’s going on.

WTF Did the game just cut off midway through, or is it me?


Killing Floor 2 review

It’s Gonna Get Bloody

killingfloor201

HIGH Sweet, glorious zombie destroying violence.

LOW There’s more than a minute of downtime between each enemy wave.

WTF “Sometimes… I wish I was a cat.”

Valhalla’s Still A Ways Off

vikingsquad

HIGH There’s some neat Golden Axe references throughout.

LOW The combat system is too shallow to remain entertaining.

WTF What were these underpants doing stowed away in a training dummy?
