Steins;Gate Elite Review

Walking the World Line

HIGH A brilliant sci-fi story backed by high-quality visuals…

LOW …at times undermined by minor technical quibbles

WTF This looks good, but I do miss the old art style.


God Eater 3 Review

Dig in, baby!

HIGH Dazing an Aragami and the whole squad wrecking its face before it can recover.

LOW The battle system lends itself to plenty of repetition.

WTF Nobody on the ship finds Phym annoying?


Anthem Review

An Anthem? Or A Swan Song?

HIGH The world design is excessively
vertical and clearly built for flying.

LOW Literally every second spent not
flying.

WTF Are empty, buggy releases like this really the norm now?



This Is Not A Review: Beat Cop

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: Beat Cop, developed by Pixel Crow and published by 11 Bit Studios.


Dead Or Alive 6

Dead Tired

HIGH Landing that new Break Blow animation. Yeah! Smack them in the face!

LOW As a value proposition, it’s clearly inferior to its predecessor in terms of content.

WTF Rachel and Momiji don’t make the cut but Raidou and Phase 4 do? Ugh.
