    Myst's spiritual successor offers a lot of the same delights as its 1993 forbear, but is hampered by litany of technical issues.

  • Nidhogg 2 review

    An already sterling fighter gets a new coat of paint and a few new tricks. It's not revolutionary, but it's the best Nidhogg has ever been.

  • Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun review

    A winning premise of cleverly combined genres let down by a series of irritating design issues.

  • Nier: Automata review

    Yoko Taro's eccentric action RPG gets a follow-up that's every bit as surprising as its predecessor with a little help from Platinum Games.

  • Nioh review

    This delicious blend of Ninja Gaiden and Dark Souls isn't quite a masterpiece, but it's a stirring return to form for Team Ninja.

  • Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom review

    Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom isn't very deep, but its wonderful movement system and presentation make it exhilarating in short doses.


  • Headlander review

    Double Fine's head-spinning sci-fi puzzler has plenty of style but not enough substance to sustain its lengthy adventure.

  • Furi review

    A stylish, mechanically polished boss rush game, Furi effectively channels the spirit of Punch-Out!! to make for an unexpected gem.

  • Severed review

    A beautiful throwback that's just a touch too shallow.

    An interesting attempt at recapturing the thrill of first love, Cibele is ultimately too clumsy for its own good.
