This Is Not A Review – Remnant: From The Ashes

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: Remnant: From the Ashes, developed by Gunfire Games and published by Perfect World Entertainment.


Darksiders III Review

Shameless. And that’s fine.

HIGH Landing a jump back/spear charge combo over and over

WTF The absurd logic behind the second half of the Lust battle


Immortal: Unchained Review

 Nothing But Bits

HIGH Some strong visual design… in spots.

LOW Too many to count, but those damn teleporting enemies rank high.

WTF Arlen is one of the messiest boss battles I’ve ever seen.
