Judgment Review

Go For The Eyes

HIGH The Heat action involving a passing car is inspired.

LOW Tailing minigames are never a good addition to any title. Ever.

WTF What is it with Yagami and cats, exactly?


Outward Review

A Familiar Journey

HIGH Finding a sweet new backpack to carry more stuff in.

LOW The combat is super, super basic.

WTF The best backpack I found was two treasure chests
lashed together with a belt.


God Eater 3 Review

Dig in, baby!

HIGH Dazing an Aragami and the whole squad wrecking its face before it can recover.

LOW The battle system lends itself to plenty of repetition.

WTF Nobody on the ship finds Phym annoying?


Dead Or Alive 6

Dead Tired

HIGH Landing that new Break Blow animation. Yeah! Smack them in the face!

LOW As a value proposition, it’s clearly inferior to its predecessor in terms of content.

WTF Rachel and Momiji don’t make the cut but Raidou and Phase 4 do? Ugh.


Devil May Cry 5 Review

The Devil You Knew

HIGH Nailing a chain of seemingly-disparate moves that flow into a gloriously insane combo.

LOW They really should have added a dedicated dodge button by now.

WTF Yeah Sony, that’s some real subtle censorship in the PS4 version.


Astroneer Review

Neerly There

HIGH Establishing the first fully-featured base feels awesome.

LOW The experience is fairly buggy.

WTF All this space age tech, and no simple method to descend into caverns.
