Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure Review

Sorry, everyone, but this is going to be one of those weird reviews where I spend most of my time complaining, before explaining why those complaints might not matter and then vaguely recommending the game.

DreadOut Review

Regular readers will know that Tim is our horror game guy, mainly because he’s not good with horror and it makes us laugh.

The Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 3 – In Harm’s Way Review

The halfway point in Telltale’s second study of humanity’s ethical fragility is where any kind of ‘buyer’s guide’ critique of the game becomes a bit pointless.

BattleBlock Theater PC Review

While they’re still just a trickle amidst the gushing tap of game releases, semi-reactive narrators have managed to top up a couple of titles in memorable fashion.

Bound by Flame Review

Bound By Flame offers everything we have come to expect from western RPGs – skill trees, customisable equipment, fast-paced combat – and beards.

Child of Light Review

If there’s one concrete thing I can say about Child of Light, it’s this: be very, very glad the rest of the IncGamers staff talked me out of writing a review written in rhyme.

Daylight Review

I’m not really sure which horror film was the first to use ‘audience reaction shots’ in its marketing, but the technique was being deployed as early as this 1981 teaser for Cronenberg’s Scanners.

Dark Souls 2 Review

The consensus on where Dark Souls 2 sits in the Souls lineage is not going to be established by this review.

Trials Fusion Review

The quintessential Trials moment comes just after a mistimed jump which has left the angle of an obstacle wedged between your front and back tire.

Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse – Episode Two Review

Back when I looked at the first episode of Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse, I was reasonably impressed.

War of the Vikings Review

Fatshark’s War of the Vikings has been in Steam’s Early Access system since at least October of last year (when IncGamers first previewed the game and dubbed it War of the Horny Hairy Blood Men.) That’s a good six months of testing, iterating and responding to the thoughts and play-testing of the community, many of whom made the jump from previous Fatshark title War of the Roses.

Moebius: Empire Rising Review

There’s something satisfyingly fitting about the fact that Jane Jensen’s first point-and-click adventure since the regularly delayed Gray Matter is Moebius, because in a lot of ways, it’s a call back to her own beginnings.

The Wolf Among Us Episode 3: A Crooked Mile Review

Ooh, ooh! Can I once again spend the first few paragraphs of this review complaining that episodic games are a bitch to review, because after the first episode you’ve basically covered everything mechanically so all you’re left with is story, and you can’t talk about that without spoiling it?

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Review

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls wouldn’t have been quite so highly anticipated if it hadn’t been for the fact that the original Diablo 3 was a broken game with a terrible loot system and an unwelcome auction house.

Shannon Tweed’s Attack of the Groupies Review / Playthrough

Well, there’s one bit of genius for you. If you’re going to release a game as patently ridiculous as Shannon Tweed’s Attack of the Groupies, you might as well release it on April 1st.

Cloudbuilt Review

Cloudbuilt is one of the most difficult games I’ve ever played.

Age of Wonders 3 Review

For a long time I’ve been fondly playing Age of Wonders II Shadow Magic, so during my games with Age of Wonders 3 I couldn’t help comparing it to it’s previous title through a microscope and my rose-tinted glasses.

BioShock Infinite Burial at Sea Part 2 DLC Review

The concluding part of BioShock Infinite’s Burial at Sea DLC is more than just a finale for this title.

Deus Ex: The Fall Review

Deus Ex: The Fall has managed something that’s bordering on the impossible.
