Metro Exodus Review

Metro Exodus is a mishmash of borrowed ideas that falls short of creating a worthy sequel, while holding tight to the previous mistakes of the series.

Fimbul Review

Gorgeous scenery and interesting story are outweighed by tedious combat, stilted gameplay, and a lack of variety in combat.

Rainswept Review

With beautiful artwork, a compelling story with fleshed-out characters, and an original soundtrack, the few foibles and a shorter-than-you'll-want playthrough time shouldn't stop you from checking this title out.

Book of Demons Review

This beautiful hack and slash is marred by boring combat.

2084 Early Access Review

2084, developed by Feardemic (a subsidiary of Bloober Team, which is known for Layers of Fear and Observer), is a heavily-stylized FPS with some strategy elements that is still in Early Access. While the cyberpunk-horror atmosphere manages to set a fantastic stage for the hacker protagonist, it's difficult to shake the feeling that most of the assets, at least in terms of the environment and enemy models, have been ripped directly from Observer and Layers of Fear.

Iris.Fall Review

With gorgeous artwork, a mysterious story, and a rich atmosphere, Iris.Fall entertains for its length, yet suffers from a brevity of content.
