This Is Not A Review: Phoenix Point Behemoth Edition

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Phoenix Point: Behemoth Edition, developed and published by Snapshot Games.


Deathloop Review

Live, Die, Repeat

HIGH The wide variety of viable approaches to nearly any situation.

LOW An almost intolerable amount of bugs.

WTF These endings are absurdly inadequate given the emphasis on story and lore.


Ninja Gaiden Master Collection Review

Return Of The Master


HIGH The Ninja Gaiden series is finally available on PC!

LOW It’s a barebones port offering few additional features or graphic options.

WTF It seems a little suspicious that only the source code for the original Itagaki versions were lost…


Days Gone (PC) Review

Days Well Spent


HIGH Being surprised by a horde whilst exploring a mineshaft. Yikes!

LOW The forced stealth missions feel outdated.

WTF Deacon’s starting bike runs out of gas in about three minutes.
