The Caligula Effect: Overdose Review

A JRPG that will appeal to fans of the genre with its interesting setting and unique combat system, but it's ultimately marred by tedious battles and dull dialogue.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel Review

While enjoyable mechanically, it’s very much an "Act One" of a larger story. As a standalone title, there's not much here for lore buffs or power gamers.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy Review

A successful PC port with exceptional storytelling that lacks important control options and falls short of expectations in certain technical areas.

Bladed Fury Review

Featuring a unique Chinese aesthetic and fun, fast-paced gameplay, Bladed Fury is a great gaming experience brimming with personality.

Corpse Party: Sweet Sachiko's Hysteric Birthday Bash Review

A darkly humorous and entertaining addition to the series, Corpse Party: Sweet Sachiko’s Hysteric Birthday Bash has a charming assortment of unique characters and a host of interesting choices, but doesn’t always translate well into the visual novel format. Fans of the series will enjoy seeing their favorite characters in outlandish scenarios, but the lack of any lasting consequences ultimately detracts from the title’s overall impact.

Fate/EXTELLA LINK Review

Fate/EXTELLA LINK, with its rich cast of characters, might just remind you what you love about the hack-and-slash genre.

7'scarlet Review

A beautiful and well-crafted visual novel, 7'scarletexcels at storytelling and manages to create a compelling mystery full of shocking twists and turns.

ONE PIECE World Seeker Review

While swinging around with Luffy is a lot of fun, gameplay is far too repetitive.

DEAD OR ALIVE 6 Review

It looks better than its predecessor, but content-wise its rather stingy and the story needs work, dampening excitement for this title.

Yakuza Kiwami Review

A decent port of a classic, with an outstanding combination of rich story and comedic elements.

GOD EATER 3 Review

While it won’t make any new fans of the Giant-Monster-Slaying genre, God Eater 3 introduces enough new with a new coat of paint for fans of the series to enjoy.

JUMP FORCE Review

While a fighting game featuring a wide variety of Weekly Shonen Jump characters seems like a no-brainer, the shoddy execution and surprisingly limited roster hinder JUMP FORCE from being the all-star it wants to be.

Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition Review

With updated graphics, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition brings a beloved entry into modernity, and while it's as simple as ever, it goes far toward meeting the expectations of the modern player.

MY HERO ONE'S JUSTICE Review

Though it is not without its flaws, MHOJ has plenty of appeal both for fans of My Hero Academia and for fans of the genre. All in all well-rounded, the characters and abilities encountered during play compliment each other well and though there are some notably stronger and weaker characters, the fact that you can almost always choose from a selection makes it easy to avoid the not-so-great ones.

WARRIORS OROCHI 4 Review

Strong mechanics, fun combat, and a lot of replay value are brought down by so-so graphics and a story that’s impossible to follow, yet you’ll still have fun mowing down scores of enemies.

Mega Man 11 Review

A fantastic way to break an eight-year hiatus, Mega Man 11 is the return that fans of the Blue Bomber have been waiting for.

Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk Review

Not without faults (in the form of bugs, stuttering, some tedium, and a lack of in-game information), this dungeon crawler RPG nevertheless offers a ton of gameplay with rewarding mechanics.

NARUTO TO BORUTO: SHINOBI STRIKER Review

Meta: Bandai Namco’s newest fighting title, developed by Soleil Ltd., is quite a bit different from previous Naruto titles—the Ultimate Ninja Storm series is, of course, beloved by many fans of both the game genre and the Naruto franchise. With Shinobi Striker, Bandai Namco has stepped away from the tried and true recipe, with (relatively) great success.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle Review

This mostly-stable title is an excellent release for fast-paced fun. Online and offline modes have plenty to offer fans of the fighting genre, including an exciting and funny story.

Anima: Gate of Memories - The Nameless Chronicles Review

Too many things got in the way of enjoying The Nameless Chronicles, as it simply doesn’t seem polished enough. Too spastic in camera movements, too repetitive in fights, and too devoid of scenery makes it hard to appreciate the otherwise interesting story.
