Mortal Kombat X Review

Be glad: the first draft of this review was a script for a short play in which I met Mortal Kombat X, a wonderful, lovely, witty person – more erudite than initial impressions might lead…

Pillars of Eternity Review

Game production cycles can stop and restart on the strangest whims. When 3D came along as a viable presentation option, it was assumed in some quarters to supercede 2D entirely. Distributors would tell Obsidian that…

Life is Strange Episode 2: Out of Time Review

Life is Strange is getting dark. I don’t mean literally – if anything, there are less flashes of the pitch-black night with the apocalyptic hurricane in this episode than in its predecessor – but in…

Game of Thrones Episode 3 – The Sword in the Darkness Review

By some unholy coincidence of videogame scheduling, the past few days have been ‘Episodic Game Week’ here at IncGamers. We’ve had the long-awaited second installment of Tales from the Borderlands (Telltale’s other current project,) the…

Dreamfall Chapters: Book Two – Rebels Review

Dreamfall Chapters is not like other episodic games, it seems. Other than the fact that I’m now two episodes in (or Books, or whatever) and yet I’ve played for 11 hours, there’s the fact that…

Tales from the Borderlands Episode 2: Atlas Mugged Review

My continued problem with reviewing episodic games continues, insofar as I’m still not sure who I’m writing them for. Am I writing them for people who played the first episode? Well, that’s likely! But… well,…

LA Cops Review

By right, LA Cops should be fantastic. Take Hotline Miami, add your own gameplay twists, rejig the setting and art style, and simmer until done. In this case: Hotline Miami, with a partner character you…

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Review

Depending on the number of spin-off titles and mobile distractions you include in the count, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue is somewhere between the seventh and twenty-fifth Assassin’s Creed game. Those are numbers which keep the champagne…


Sid Meier’s Starships Review

Grand Bastard’s log, Earthdate 11 March, 2015: The Eternal Kingdom was really pissing me off. We’d been at loggerheads since we first met; my exploratory fleet was off making friends with planets past their territory,…

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Review

Warning: This review spoils a few gameplay elements from the final levels of the original game. If you haven’t played the original Hotline Miami, you should go do that before reading this, and not just…

Cities: Skylines Review

What happened to quality city builders? SimCity was king of the genre, until Maxis (perhaps under duress from EA) decided to change the formula a couple of years ago, resulting in the fifth major SimCity…

Europa Universalis IV El Dorado DLC Review

This fifth expansion for the indomitable Europa Universalis IV is a dangerous one for those of us who are easily paralysed by indecision. If you often find yourself drifting around the game’s country selection screen,…

Homeworld Remastered Review

There are probably lots of games from the 90s that deserve a “remaster,” to use the term of choice these days. On the other hand, there are games which should probably just be left alone…

Evolve Review

Multiplayer-centric games like Evolve are a bit of a bastard to review. You’re looking at the game right out of the gate (or, in the case of some of my press colleagues who published reviews…

Cities XXL Review

The teeny-tiny cities of EA’s most recent SimCity appear to have sparked an interest in the city building genre among other developers. There are two which come to mind; Colossal Order’s Cities: Skylines, the recently…
