Alex Hunter: Lord of the Mind Review

A Mad Scientist Jamboree

Alex Hunter: Lord of the Mind Review Screenshot

HIGH Finally figuring out what all that coal was for.

LOW A rotating block puzzle? Have we not evolved past the need for these?

WTF Where did that submarine come from?

Hidden Files: Echoes of JFK Review

Oliver Stone is Rolling Over in his Grave

Hidden Files Echoes of JFK

HIGH Fingerprinting and file cracking feels like real policework.

LOW Literally nothing else does.

WTF Wait, (SPOILER) is in on the coverup? That seems like a pretty extreme accusation, guys.

Preview: Silence-The Whispered World 2 (PC, XBO)

It's all in his mind?

Preview: The Talos Principle (PC)

What defines mankind?

Hellraid: The Escape Review

Escape this palette


HIGH Defeating an enemy by dying with it.

LOW The bizarre shooter segment halfway through.

WTF You guys do understand that an empty pot weighs just as much broken as it does intact, right?

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments Review

Cocaine Wishes and Cadaver Dreams

Sherlock Holmes

HIGH Navigating the deduction space of Sherlock's mind

LOW Awful, unresponsive lockpicking controls

WTF Doing bumps of "sap powder" in the clubhouse of a zen garden

Preview: Tulpa


The first thing I thought of when I saw Tulpa was that it's Limbo as imagined by Tim Burton. It's an easy comparison to make thanks to side-scrolling, puzzle-based play crossed with surreal imagery -- it conjured Coraline in my head more than a few times.

Mind: Path to Thalamus Review

Keep the Picture, Lose the Thousand Words

Path to Thalamus

HIGH The title sequence on the cliffside beach.

LOW The "final battle" against a ranting psychological entity.

WTF What exactly is the colossus doing when both its feet are lifted?

Defense Grid 2 Review

Perfection as a Dirty Word

Defense Grid 2

HIGH What a minute—is that Alan Tudyk?

LOW In multiple-path levels the game doesn't bother to mention where enemies are coming from next.

WTF You took away the enemies that missile launchers kill—so why are they still in the game?

Shadowgate Review

The Castle of Death


HIGH Figuring out the process of getting across the wooden bridge.

LOW The rather anticlimactic conclusion.

WTF Why is Jair so confident he'll never need any of these keys again?
