Latest reviews for adventure games

The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes

review The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes

Supermassive comes out firing in its choice-driven horror game set during the Iraq War, but it's the characters and storytelling that make it rise above its predecessors.

Five Top Upcoming Adventure Games in December 2021

video preview Five Top Upcoming Adventure Games in December 2021

With a dizzying array of great new games leading up to Christmas, our latest trailer compilation overs a glimpse at some of the best to watch for.

My Beautiful Paper Smile

review My Beautiful Paper Smile

This delightfully surreal black-and-white adventure is richly atmospheric, though you'll have to grin and bear some unfortunate gameplay choices.

Impostor Factory

review Impostor Factory

As similar as it is to the beloved To the Moon, the latest series installment is very much its own distinctive construction in a number of surprising ways.

Tandem: A Tale of Shadows

review Tandem: A Tale of Shadows

The story trails far behind the gameplay in this otherwise enjoyable dual-character puzzle-platformer in a stylish steampunk mansion.

Liberated

review Liberated

A slick graphic novel-style story presentation can't escape the tedium of its side-scrolling action in this gritty neo-noir thriller.

Murder Mystery Machine

review Murder Mystery Machine

Blazing Griffin geared up for Hercule Poirot: The First Cases with this leaner, more demanding but similarly deduction-driven investigation.

The Office Quest

review The Office Quest

There's no disguising its lack of user-friendliness, but this charming absurdist point-and-click comedy should provide a welcome break from the daily grind.

Half Past Fate: Romantic Distancing

review Half Past Fate: Romantic Distancing

Now's the perfect time to treat yourself to a pair of heartwarming character-driven rom-com adventures, the second taking place under a challenging pandemic lockdown.

Happy Game

review Happy Game

Amanita fans will once again find much to delight in, though its innocent CHUCHEL-like graphics and gameplay conceal a much darker, gorier heart within.

Kraken Academy!!

review Kraken Academy!!

The quirky presentation and eclectic cast of characters outclass the uneven gameplay and storytelling in this top-down, time-looping school adventure.
