Blade Assault Review

Come for the Mutants, Stay For The Man-Eating Plant

HIGH Fast action, precise controls.

LOW Enemies are damage sponges to the point of absurdity.

WTF Why are Jenny’s feet so pointy?


Elden Ring Review-In-Progress

If Elden Ring were the size of a normal From Software game, I’d have finished it by now. I’m 30 hours in — longer than my entire first run of Bloodborne — yet I’d be surprised if I were more than a third of the way through.


Infernax Review

A Hard Day’s Knight

HIGH The secret ending is the work of pure unfettered genius.

LOW Wandering around pointlessly in search of the entrance to Stormheim.

WTF The markedly more realistic approach to certain Castlevania moments.


UNDYING Preview

Zombies, Zombies Everywhere!

HIGH Having a mother/son relationship in a post apocalyptic world is a neat idea…

LOW … that Undying seems to do nothing much with.

WTF Why do I have to keep telling him to be strong?


Steel Assault Review

Not Enough To Stay Hooked

HIGH Tough, but do-able boss fights.

LOW The grappling hook can’t be used for attacking.

WTF Seriously, why can’t the grappling hook harm enemies!?


Fallen Knight Review

Just Stay Down…

HIGH It’s reminiscent of classic 2D action games.

LOW Bland levels ending with super-difficult bosses.

WTF How the heck I’m am I supposed to dodge that?!?


Recompile Review

Criticize Me, Recompile Me

HIGH A stylish, polygonal TRON-like aesthetic.

LOW Infuriating level design.

WTF Having to wait a full 10 seconds to respawn after each death.
