The Beard in the Mirror review

A nostalgic reflection of classic Sierra, this retro-styled fantasy adventure doesn't quite have the chops of its golden age inspirations.

Orwell review

This unique "privacy invasion thriller" has a thought-provoking surveillance concept that is hindered somewhat by its suspect dialogue and imposed linearity.

Chase: Cold Case Investigations - Distant Memories review

This extremely short and disappointing 3DS detective mystery from former Cing designers never really builds up any momentum.

3DS Nov 21, 2016

Quadrilateral Cowboy review

It's hip to be square in Blendo Games' unique retro cyberpunk heist simulator, even if it doesn't quite finish the job it started.

Bolt Riley: A Reggae Adventure - Chapter 1 review

This two-part sunny island sojourn to Jamaica neither drags nor gets too high in its all-too-brief Early Access prologue.

Blues and Bullets review

The second installment continues hitting all its story and visual marks, but incessant gunplay may leave you seeing red.

This brief slideshow excursion hints of a dark FMV mystery to come, but its story leaves you stranded before really being explored.

Order of the Thorne: The King’s Challenge review

A new fantasy anthology will be music to the ears of classic Sierra fans, though its debut works better as a standalone quest.

Jerry McPartlin: Rebel with a Cause review

Though we dig the setting, this slice of 1950s Americana is dragged down by its simplistic gameplay and uninspired production values.

Alum review

The impressive production quality of this substantial retro adventure can't fully atone for its pervasive religious message.

The Wolf Among Us: Episode Five - Cry Wolf review

The finale caps an uneven series with a bloody good time and a worthy addition to Fabletown lore.

The Wolf Among Us: Episode Four - In Sheep’s Clothing review

The penultimate episode is a disappointingly toothless affair that's all dressed up with nowhere to go.

The Wolf Among Us: Episode Three - A Crooked Mile review

The middle installment's story intensity grows by leaps and bounds, with some meaty confrontations to really sink your teeth into.

The Wolf Among Us: Episode Two - Smoke & Mirrors review

This disappointing sheep in wolf's clothing took longer than usual to arrive but will take quicker than usual to finish.

The Wolf Among Us: Episode One - Faith review

A brilliant debut installment has made us believers in Telltale's adaptation of DC Comics' twisted modern fairy tale.
