Soulstice Review

Soulstice brings a brand new IP to the action RPG landscape that offers a robust and challenging combat experience. Fans of the genre can look forward to a lengthy campaign with a good deal of replayability for perfectionists.

Lost Eidolons Review

Ocean Drive Studio made its debut this year with tactical RPG Lost Eidolons. Strong gameplay demonstrates plenty of promise for future titles, despite a few missteps.

Asterigos: Curse of the Stars Review

Asterigos: Curse of the Stars is a hidden indie gem from Acme Gamestudio that balances tough combat with great accessibility. While pacing issues and visual shortcomings exist, there’s a wonderful world waiting to be explored.

This Way Madness Lies Review

Can magical girls, Eldritchian horrors, and William Shakespeare all blend together seamlessly? Zeboyd Games gives it a go in their newest RPG, This Way Madness Lies.

Circus Electrique Review

Circus Electrique imagines a steampunk version of London overrun by maniacs where the city’s only hope lies with a ragtag group of circus performers. While promising on paper, odd design choices bring the level of spectacle down significantly.

Steelrising Review

Automatons stalk the streets of Paris and King Louis XVI rules with an iron fist. It would be a shame if there were a more advanced robot to put a stop to the whole thing.

Sunday Gold Review

BKOM Studios’ Sunday Gold merges point-and-click adventure and turn-based RPG mechanics. While the result is an average representation of both, it makes for an interesting attempt at a genre mashup.

Valkyrie Elysium Review

Valkyrie Elysium marks the return of a long dormant JRPG series, this time as an action RPG. Fast paced combat and strong supporting cast are bolstered by thoughtful homage to the parent series.

The DioField Chronicle Review

The DioField Chronicle provides an engaging and refreshing real time tactical battle system. That will be enough for fans of tactical RPGs, but the bland story unfortunately can’t keep up with its stellar gameplay.

Manafinder Review

Manafinder incorporates several mini-games to add more fun to its adventure. This pixel-art turn-based RPG from small indie developer Wolfsden makes for an engaging and highly enjoyable experience.

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.
