Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee Review

The Worst Like No One Ever Was

HIGH The presentation is remarkably improved over previous Pokémon titles.

LOW It practically plays itself.

WTF The player can travel by clinging onto Snorlax’s body fat.


Black Bird Review

Feathery Fantastic

HIGH Incredibly smart, incredibly tight design.

LOW The final boss bullet hell is a bit much.

WTF I’m still a little hazy on the story’s finer points.


Rise & Shine Review

It Does Neither

HIGH Some lovely animation and music.

LOW An awkward tone and a terrible sense of humor.

WTF The idea of clearing the final level on Switch without the Pro Controller.


Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate Review

The Tourist Trap

HIGH  The moment-to-moment exhilaration of fighting a gigantic monster can still feel amazing.

LOW Poor training options, hunts are structurally repetitive, area transitions disrupt fights.

WTF The localization’s fourth-wall-bending goofiness is frequently obnoxious, complete with a literal “git gud” at one point.


Pode Review

Catch A Rising Star

HIGH Strong, iterative puzzle design.

LOW The pulled-back perspective frequently leads to missed jumps.

WTF The Rock can teleport by swallowing the Star.
