Hollow Knight Review

 Symphony Of The Chitin

 

HIGH There are bosses called “Dung Defender” and “the Mantis Lords.”

LOW Who thought this map system was a good idea?

WTF No, really, who thought this map system was a good idea?


For Honor Review

At Least There’s No Tower Climbing

HIGH A duel against a player of equal skill level.

LOW What passes for a single-player campaign.

WTF “You cannot join this session because it is full.” Then why did you put me there, game?!


Diluvion Review

The Life Aquatic

HIGH The search for a passport. Just wait.

LOW Fiddling with the miserable torpedo targeting during a heated battle.

WTF The final area’s bizarre fixation on tetrahedrons.


For Honor Beta Preview

A few months ago, I played the alpha build of For Honor, Ubisoft’s multiplayer-centric knights-versus-Vikings-versus-samurai dueling game. I mostly loved it for its authentic-looking visual design and deceptively deep combat engine, but had some concerns regarding its accessibility and barrier to mastery.


Beholder Review

Das Leben der Anderen

beholder01

HIGH Getting out of someone’s apartment just in the nick of time.

LOW Hearing the loudspeaker spewing propaganda for, like, a straight hour.

WTF That English translation.
