Yakuza 0 Review

Meeting Old Friends For The First Time

HIGH Putting a chicken in charge of a high-profile financial district.

LOW Enemies equipped with firearms are a time-wasting annoyance.

WTF There aren’t nearly enough scenes involving Nishitani.


Knee Deep Review

Bodies In The Bayou

HIGH Chasing a murderer across a rooftop with a grumpy ex-cop.

LOW The ex-cop’s wooden joke-telling.

WTF The big twist ending that I can’t spoil but trust me, when you get to it, you’ll understand.


Bucket Detective Review

Oh, Was That The line Back There? Did I Cross It?

HIGH Laughing one moment, shocked the next, and wrapping it all up with a little bow of terror.

LOW “Puzzle game” and “Guess-randomly-because-I-don’t-even-know game” are the same here.

WTF Unexplained naked guys with masks of the Dark Lord?


Horizon: Zero Dawn Review

A Misguided Journey

HIGH The first four or five hours are amazing.

LOW Getting mobbed by three different kinds of enemies in the desert.

WTF A lot of this game feels seems directly lifted from Far Cry: Primal


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?!
