Jack Move Review

Jack Move is a cyberpunk RPG that is reminiscent of pixel JRPGs and the ’80s. While its short adventure and soundscape are enjoyable, a clichéd story fails to stand out.

I Was a Teenage Exocolonist Review

Exploring connections and dealing with gut-punching disasters are at the core I Was a Teenage Exocolonist experience. This card-based narrative adventure brings emotion in spades as it tells a touching story about life.

Metal Max Xeno: Reborn Review

Metal Max Xeno: Reborn claims to provide an open-world sandbox of vehicular mayhem. Unfortunately, technical problems and confounding gameplay changes undermine the campy charm of this post-apocalyptic series.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Review

Monolith Soft returns with another title in the Xenoblade Chronicles series. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 certainly doesn’t disappoint as the studio takes full advance of both its ambition and maturity.

Digimon Survive Review

Digimon Survive blends visual novel adventure with strategic combat. Though it’s exploration and sporadic battles fail to impress, strong art and a superb story help raise it up.

Dusk Diver 2 Review

Dusk Diver 2 is an anime-inspired action RPG that has some addicting elements. However, its lack of combat variety and meandering story don’t pack a big punch.

Live A Live Review

Square Enix’s Live A Live melds various gameplay and storytelling elements across a variety of scenarios. With its new remake giving it the chance to acquaint itself with modern audiences, the game proves to have stood the test of time.

Bear and Breakfast Review

In Bear and Breakfast players take on the role of a cute entrepreneurial bear and run multiple bed and breakfasts. Why would humans trust an ursine running a resort? Because he makes the experience bear-able.

Citizen Sleeper Review

Citizen Sleeper takes players to the final frontier, aboard the embattled ring station Erlin’s Eye. What awaits is a difficult and rewarding space adventure fans of dystopian sci-fi will want to check out.

Fallen Angel Review

Fallen Angel puts its best wing forward with engaging boss battles and enjoyable exploration. Unfortunately, this Switch port suffers from performance issues that prevent it from greatness.

Souldiers Review

After a rocky launch, the team behind Souldiers has, ahem, soldiered on. What awaits new players is an outstanding example of a Metroidvania action RPG, albeit not for the faint of heart.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes Review

Koei Tecmo’s Omega Force studio once again links up with Nintendo’s Fire Emblem. Full utilisation of the depth available in the gameplay and a host of fun new character interactions make the second crossover a success.

The Hand of Merlin Review

Arthurian legends adaptations have to find a way to showcase something unique to stand out. The Hand of Merlin uses otherworldly sci-fi enemies, alien horror, and a killer soundtrack to provide an entertaining tactical roguelite.
