Down With The Sickness

HIGH God-tier writing and mechanics that inform the themes.

LOW The one frustrating sequence in which combat is mandatory.

WTF A frequent need to trade sharp objects to children.


Rage 2 Review

Pretty In Pink

HIGH Satisfying gunplay, and a nearly limitless supply of it.

LOW Could use a bit more personality.

WTF An anticlimactic encounter against a boss teased in the opening level.


Jupiter & Mars Review

Prevent Pollution By Putting Everyone To Sleep

HIGH A nice environmentalist undertone.

LOW Constantly slamming on the X button to make the levels navigable.

WTF Awkward, uncomfortable PSVR implementation.


This Is Not A Review: Windscape

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: Windscape, developed by Magic Sandbox and published by Headup Games.
