Wasteland 3 Review

A Merry Nuclear Winter

HIGH The writing and worldbuilding is frequently fantastic.

LOW The bugs are bad, but the loading times are worse.

WTF One of the skill paths is dedicated to… repairing toasters.


Phoenix Point Review

The Forever War

HIGH Rich tactical gameplay, sharp writing, great tactical UI.

LOW Inconsistent pacing, numerous technical issues, simplistic AI.

WTF If alien captures are critical, why are non-lethal weapons so weak?


XCOM 2: War Of The Chosen Review

I Choose You!

HIGH The tweaks revitalize the campaign. Finishing several missions with a 100% hit rate.

LOW Getting all of the DLC properly activated is counter-intuitive. Performance issues.

WTF Seriously, don’t play Iron Man mode.
