Latest reviews for adventure games

The Fabled Woods

review The Fabled Woods

This short but scenic hike through the forest could have been memorable, but a lack of gameplay substance leaves much to be desired.

The Last Show of Mr. Chardish

review The Last Show of Mr. Chardish

This short, thoughtful genre-bending adventure looks better than it plays throughout its discrete five-act exploration of art and identity.

The Magnificent Trufflepigs

review The Magnificent Trufflepigs

Metal detecting in the scenic English countryside is only a mediocre exercise without enough narrative treasures to unearth along the way.

There Was the Moon

review There Was the Moon

This impressive first-person indie adventure is full of abstract narrative intrigue and hauntingly surreal imagery, even if it doesn't quite stick the landing.

Minute of Islands

review Minute of Islands

The hours spent tooling around Studio Fizbin's gorgeous archipelago in this clever, emotionally powerful puzzle-platforming adventure will make you glad you chose to play it.

Supposedly Wonderful Future

review Supposedly Wonderful Future

This heady sci-fi visual novel presents some interesting moral questions, but its gameplay and story integration aren't so great.

Cloudpunk: City of Ghosts

review Cloudpunk: City of Ghosts

This sequel-sized DLC expansion delivers both a little more and a little less of what made the original open-world sci-fi adventure so impressive.

Lacuna

review Lacuna

Though plenty compelling the first time through, you'll want to replay this slickly designed choice-driven sci-fi murder mystery at least once to fill in all the gaps.

Flow Weaver

review Flow Weaver

This Oculus-exclusive VR adventure spins a fun yarn but the inescapable fact is that it's dragged down by implementation issues and lack of any resolution.

I Saw Black Clouds

review I Saw Black Clouds

Those willing to overlook a lack of gameplay will find a darkly compelling live-action thriller with plenty of replay value.
