Forza Horizon 4 (PC) Review

The Best It’s Ever Been

HIGH Drag racing in a snowstorm on the freeway in the dead of night.

LOW Matchmaking for less-populated events

WTF I swear, if I get another hat instead of a car as a reward, I’m going to lose it.


The Gardens Between Review

Memento More, Please

HIGH Consistent, new uses for time manipulation.

LOW Wishing there were just two or three more puzzle sets.

WTF Being somehow nostalgic for things I didn’t experience.


Deep Sky Derelicts Review

Dungeon Crawling… Innnnnn spaaaaaace

HIGH Easy-to-pick-up deck building mechanics.

LOW The awkward user interface.

WTF Accidentally selecting the wrong enemy if they sway a single pixel into my cursor.


The King’s Bird Review

Platformasochism

HIGH Wide-open levels offering lots of room to play with momentum.

LOW The most absurd difficulty spike I’ve seen in ages.

WTF Inexplicably dashing straight down into hazards.


Vandals Review

A Short, Sweet Life Of Crime

HIGH Levels stay fresh with only a handful of unique mechanics.

LOW Having a two-song soundtrack is never a good idea.

WTF It’s also a history lesson?


City Of Brass Review

Unpolished And Unrewarding

HIGH Flexible difficulty via buffs and debuffs.

LOW The hitboxes are beyond inconsistent.

WTF Poison makes everything (even bosses!) go down in one hit.


Masters Of Anima Review

Questionable Strength In Numbers

HIGH Commanding mobs of a hundred or more feels badass.

LOW The last few fights really soured the joy of the mid-game.

WTF What’s with the cutscene resolution?
