Ever since the closing moments of BioShock: Infinite’s gripping DLC, fans have been clamoring for more experiences in a similarly uncomfortable, doom-laden vein. This is likely why the ID@Xbox title We Happy Few is creating so much buzz of late. But this is no Bioshock clone, friends, despite a similar look and feel. Instead, We Happy Few is a much less visceral, but no less intense adventure – one that should gain even more hype as development continues.
HIGH An absolutely gorgeous replication of a deep anime universe.
LOW Online matchmaking turned my Elite controller into a pricey shotput.
WTF I'm a kickass ninja saving the world. Why am I fetching cats?

WTF Monosyllabic grunts kill the rom-com subplot.

LOW Gamers won't want to, either.
WTF Who decided to put a bad tower defense game in the middle of a worse Diablo clone?
