HIGH The cartoon art style gives its characters personality.
LOW Too much effort in some places, not enough in others.
WTF I guess I’m rescuing a princess again?
High: The deep breath before (and the sigh of relief after) a seemingly impossible bit of platforming.
Low: Repeatedly losing hours of saved progress for no discernible reason.
WTF: The player can choose the color of Rude Bear’s blood—Rude Pink, Energy Orange, Lizard Conspiracy Blue, and more.
Raiders of the Broken Planet is an interesting proposition. Self-funded by Spanish Developers MercurySteam (a team not known for their online skills) the game is an asymmetrical multiplayer third-person shooter that tries to set a balance between guns and melee. The beta itself does a lot to give me hope for the full game, but that hope comes with caveats.
HIGH Nearly every one of the murder mysteries are spectacularly well-crafted.
LOW Some leaps of logic in puzzle solving could give bad point-and-click adventures a run for their money.
WTF Goodbye Despair‘s ending makes sense, but also reaches the shark-jumping heights of Final Fantasy XV‘s finale.
