No monkeying around allowed in this beautiful but gameplay-deficient, unoriginal choice-driven story of one primate species versus another.

Beyond Blue review Article

Beyond Blue review

There’s no real gameplay to speak of, but this beautiful marine adventure should make for a whale of a few hours of exploring for ocean lovers.

Despite its slick production values, where this first-person horror adventure breaks down is that it’s just not very scary or interactive enough to maintain suspense.

It's short in length and narratively incoherent, but this atmospheric side-scroller is a dream come true for fans of surreal environmental puzzlers.

Beneath the shallow gameplay of this gorgeous EA Original is a captivating metaphorical tale of struggling with personal demons.

An otherwise decent Tesla-inspired thriller is held back somewhat by watered-down gameplay and horror elements.

It’s not too long and its focus is very narrow, but you can count on this surreal little corridor adventure to deliver a unique exploratory experience.

Its slick production values are the cat’s meow, but this ambitious puzzle-platformer ends up biting off more than it can chew.

FAR: Lone Sails review

This unique vehicular side-scroller may look like a platformer, but under the hood it’s all adventure that shouldn’t be missed.

It's the indomitable human spirit of a child that's best captured in this charming FREE spin-off family drama set in the Life Is Strange universe.
