Latest reviews for adventure games

Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins

review Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins

Though the limited use of the license is enough to make you weep, this found phone investigation is otherwise another rock-solid adventure from the creators of SIMULACRA.

Riddle of the Sphinx: The Awakening

review Riddle of the Sphinx: The Awakening

The HD remake of the Toblers' challenging archeological puzzler looks, sounds and plays better than before but hard-earned answers are as elusive as ever.

Genesis Noir

review Genesis Noir

This experimental, noir-themed art installation exploring life's big questions begins with a bang but loses momentum before the end.

Mundaun

review Mundaun

With its striking pencil sketch aesthetic and effective blend of genre elements, this chilling mountain horror adventure reaches consistently impressive heights.

Ryte: The Eye of Atlantis

Its cheesy B movie fun is a highlight, but there's very little gameplay or challenge to tide you over in this short live-action sci-fi thriller.

Like Ace Attorney meets Zoom, this delightfully homemade legal adventure riffs on both online culture and awkward video conferencing.

There's plenty of fun to unearth in this beautifully hand-painted archeological sci-fi adventure set three thousand years in the future.

Paradise Lost

review Paradise Lost
