    The Walking Dead: The Final Season review in progress

    The Walking Dead: The Final Season - Episode 1: Done Running

    The Walking Dead: The Final Season is off to a cracking start, thanks to the dynamic relationship between Clem and AJ and some of the strongest dialogue in the series to date. Episode One - Done Running Props to Clementine. Despite everything... more

    We Happy Few review

    We Happy Few

    While We Happy Few's story contains some genuinely wonderful twists and turns once it gets going, it's dragged down by frustrating survival systems, shoddy combat, and an empty world. Mashing a myriad of ideas together isn’t always best practice. It can... more

    Call of Cthulhu review

    Call of Cthulhu

    Call of Cthulhu's atmosphere, especially early on, is delicious, but it's let down by wayward pacing and plot and some muddy graphics. The island of Darkwater, where most of developer Cyanide’s Call of... more

    Below review

    Below

    Below’s moody gloom and atmosphere is spoiled by mechanics that really cramp its central quest. It's called Below, and in it, you venture below. It starts slowly... more

    Sea of Thieves review

    Sea of Thieves

    Rare's piratical playground looks lovely, but you have to make a bit too much of your own fun. The sound and the fury of the waves is lovely, but for Sea of Thieves to be properly good it needs to give the players more to work with. You will either love Sea of Thieves and have loads of fun with it or... more

    The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit review

    The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit

    “As a teaser for Life is Strange 2, Captain Spirit does its job, but here’s hoping there’s more subtlety to the writing for the next big thing from Dontnod” You’d have to really be dead inside to not have felt something for... more

    Transference review

    Transference

    The challenge of Transference's puzzles tapers off, and there's little subtlety when it comes to certain themes, but great use of some grim audio make this a decent little horror game. The horrors within the virtual space of first-person psychological thriller... more

    Gris review

    Gris

    Gris plays to your aural and optical senses by delivering something exquisite in that area, but lacks a compelling story to prop itself up alongside equivalents. Dumb fun will always be a part of what makes video games so great. But in... more

    Fe review

    Fe

    Fe is all very lovely and (literally) harmonious, with fun layers of platforming. Coloured flowers and singing is a nice enough way to spend a rainy afternoon. If you liked the feel of Ori and the Blind Forest – not the way Ori actually... more

    The Thin Silence review

    The Thin Silence

    The Thin Silence has a satisfying, creative approach to puzzle solving, alongside a sad story told in equally sad snippets. Though you can reset puzzles and try again as often as you need, you might sometimes still be left at a loss. There are a lot of platformers in the world and with each new one developed... more

    State of Mind review

    State of Mind

    The originality of its vision and the thrust of its narrative more than excuse some sci-fi clichés, and you’re left with a breezy adventure game which compels with its ideas, if not always with its play. All is not well in the world of Richard Nolan. He’s just been in a... more

    Stay review

    Stay

    Stay’s compelling lead character and gripping dialogue ensures you’ll want to see Quinn’s journey through to the end. It’s just a shame it spends a bit too much time testing your patience with irksome puzzles and some needless waffling. Stay reminds me of those many hours I spent hunched over my computer,... more

    The Red Strings Club review

    The Red Strings Club

    A cyberpunk exploration of humanity, manipulation and getting tanked, The Red Strings club is lovely and melancholy and well worth a look. My anticipation for The Red Strings Club went from being aware it was coming... more
