The Witness Video Review

The Witness feels like it’s living in the shadow of better puzzle games. While the graph-based challenges are about 20 hours of fun, and I could see me plowing my way through a book of them, there’s nothing to reward your dedication. It’s beautiful, but there’s no music, no story, no discernible themes; it’s a complete and utter wash outside of figuring out where to … Continue reading The Witness Video Review

Crimson Room: Decade Review

Crimson Room: Decade will not be on anyone’s favorite puzzle games list. It’s aggravatingly unfair and lacks any imagination for a game that proudly proclaims ten years of experience. The unnecessarily complicated storyline is delivered so fast and then is completely forgotten when some discovery could’ve made it another mystery to solve. The actual puzzles are so asinine, that you’ll usually think there’s something more … Continue reading Crimson Room: Decade Review

Goetia Video Review

Goetia is one of those games that seems like it’s going to be good but then wows you with how exceptional it is. From the masterful storytelling, nerve-rattling audio and jaw-dropping visuals, this game deserves recognition for its near flawless composition. The story of a young woman’s spirit digging through a gigantic tomb in search of her family’s downfall is so poignant and engaging that … Continue reading Goetia Video Review

Deponia Doomsday Video Review

I love Daedalic Entertainment. They’re single-handedly showing that Point and Click Adventures are still a viable source for thoughtful and engaging entertainment. While Deponia Doomsday isn’t my favorite of the series, it’s still worth journeying through once again. The story isn’t as focused as it could’ve been and spends most of its time justifying the trilogy’s ending in some moments that feel more like lecturing … Continue reading Deponia Doomsday Video Review

Heaven’s Hope Review

 Heaven’s Hope is a mediocre game at best.  It really doesn’t have a ton to offer veteran players, and the challenge is almost non-existent. Worst of all, the game feels like one of those Christian pamphlets you get on your car window.  Given the subject matter, it is refreshing that the game condemns zealotry while promoting rationalism.  I enjoyed the spiritual and moral aspects of … Continue reading Heaven’s Hope Review
