There Is No Light Preview

The staff at GameCritics were unusually excited about There is No Light, a successfully Kickstarted project coming from developers Zelart in Q3, 2021. In this rare double preview, we have thoughts from both Dan Weissenberger and Eugene Sax, each written independently of the other.


Mortal Shell Review

Hardened Warrior

HIGH Nailing the timing needed to consistently counter enemies.

LOW Having to use an item once before knowing what it does.

WTF An area that almost looks like something out of Control.


Nioh 2 Review

Still Sharp

HIGH Tight action, deep systems. The blue gravestones.

LOW The controller mapping for demon powers makes no sense. 

WTF Basic backstabbing is hidden in a locked skill tree. 


Code Vein Review

Soulsborne: Anime Edition

HIGH Yakumo. Or maybe Eva? Nah, it’s gotta be Yakumo.

LOW The combat’s just average, and there’s a ton of it.

WTF Who thought walking through dozens of memories at a snail’s pace was a good idea?
