    The Walking Dead: Michonne – Episode 1: In Too Deep Review

    The Walking Dead: Michonne – Episode 1: In Too Deep

    Michonne's main problem is sadly the most inescapable one: she's in yet another fucking zombie story. It's fair to say that Michonne's had it tough. She's trying to survive the... more

    Californium Review


    Starts strongly, but soon fades into a slog through samey puzzles and ever-weaker environments. An interesting (if not particularly engaging) period adventure - or walking... more

    Lumo Review


    Lumo could have easily been another retro inspired title that did little other than revel in old-school visuals. It's actually a lovely trip down memory lane. I never played Head Over Heels, the 1987 isometric adventure game that Lumo... more

    Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter Review

    Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter

    A decent adventure game with lots of ropey bits. Just like the last one, and the one before it. Frogwares have been on a bit of a roll with its Sherlock Holmes games in... more

    Asemblance Review


    At the moment Asemblance is an interesting diversion, but it promises to be much more. Whether it fulfils that promise will depend on what mysteries can be solved. Asemblance is the latest game to rely on the community to find solutions to... more

    Oxenfree Review


    I can't think of many games like Oxenfree. It's simple if judged purely on gameplay mechanics but wonderfully accomplished in terms of storytelling, characters and dialogue. It's nice when something comes along, seemingly out of nowhere, and is a... more

    That Dragon, Cancer Review

    That Dragon, Cancer

    The representation of a familly dealing with the protracted illness of a child is well done, but wasn't as interesting to me as the exploration of faith that was inextricably woven into it. It's an odd sort of beast, That Dragon, Cancer (see, that works on two... more

    Firewatch Review


    Firewatch feels like a natural and smart evolution of the adventure game, offering choices without as many constraints, but at the same time expertly funneling players down a path. Firewatch isn't any of the things I expected it to be. Firewatch is a game... more

    Quadrilateral Cowboy Review

    Quadrilateral Cowboy

    A smart, engaging puzzler with a great central mechanic. Hands up if you've ever 'hacked' anything in real life. I haven't. I bet you... more

    ABZU Review


    Abzu is a testament to where we are with video game development and shows how diverse the medium can and should be, even if it's not quite as emotionally resonant as it perhaps could have been. I went snorkeling in a mexican lake about 4 years ago. In that lake, hiding... more

    Virginia Review


    As a whole Virginia is wonderfully cinematic, and a fantastic story to inhabit as it unfolds. With Virginia there's a handy litmus test that we can get out of the way,... more

    Batman: Arkham VR Review

    Batman: Arkham VR

    A short but stunning 90-minute experience that truly lets you 'Be the Batman'. Batman: Arkham VR is an incredible experience, but it’s over far too soon... more
