Throwback Review: Mirror's Edge - Bottomless Pit
We all know that EA is... subversive, when it comes to evolution.

 

A publisher known for being seemingly suicidal when it comes to new IPs, and dedicated to

Shape of The World Review - Epiphany Fields
Hello. How are you? Your err... hands smell nice?

 

Excuse the formalities, but I feel like maybe I've been a bit too much of a Negative Nancy lately. Here I am,
Don't Sink Review - Sea of Poop Thieves
Ahoy there, mati-- Ahh, what's the bloody point?

 

I'm not going to lie, Sea of Thieves drained my enthusiasm for pirates. If Rare's maligned baby was actually what pirates

Xbox Game Pass: September's New Games Revealed
Xbox Game Pass is about to add a heap of new games to the service. The September additions to the Netflix-style service have been unveiled; there are some big triple-A releases

SYMMETRY Review –…

694
See, this is the problem with Survival games.   They always have to be based around a gimmick, something that’s so inherently different, that the developer hopes you can cloud the fact that they’re just Minecraft or Terraria under a different cosmetic, or gimmick. You see it still, with stuff like The Solus Project,…

Dynasty Warriors 9…

781
It’s finally back! Dynasty Warriors 9, baby!   Well, actually it’s Dynasty Warriors 8, as the first Dynasty Warriors was a 3D fighting game, which is not in line with the rest of the series, with it being famous for having arguably the best hack-n-slash gameplay around. Massive battlefields,…

BLEED 2 Review…

401
THERE STILL ISN’T ANY BLOOD, COME ON BOOTDIS–   Back in August, Ian Campbell AKA Bootdisk Revolution released his old 360 XBLIG baby to the current-gen consoles, BLEED. It was alright, it’s a competent emulation of the NES titles it was trying to invigorate the idea with, and despite its extremely…

The Fall Part…

485
At the start of the year, we here at Sick Critic paid attention to a few indie game releases that were sure to hit. One of them was The Fall Part 2: Unbound.   Part of why it was showcased, is due to the first one, which I had nothing…

Asemblance Review –…

490
Oh, come on, man, not another 20-minute game.   Whatever, this is Asemblance, a first-person walking simulator psychological thriller, and why don’t you try saying that three times fast? Coming to us from Seattle-based Nilo Studios who have only ever created one game, today’s time-ticking torment. The final result?…

Celeste Review –…

1089
Why is January so goddamn good for video games?   I get that it’s the period where all of the indie/triple A developers that aren’t Activision figure it’s safe to avoid the Christmas rush, but this time? Goodness gracious, we’ve been spoilt for choice. Albert & Otto aside, we’ve…

Vesta Review –…

454
The 90s 3-D platformer throwback is something I never expected to return.   A Hat in Time, FreezeME, Yooka-Laylee, and a few others to boot. What’s great is the irony from Yooka-Laylee easily being the worst out of the 3 mentioned, and it’s the new-comers who came through with a fresh set of…

Best Games to…

Well, it’s late January again. That means it’s the beginning to the second semester for us college students and the coming of midterms for the high schoolers. I’ve been back in school for a little over a week myself, and I already miss the gaming binges I could indulge…

Games With Gold…

421
With Microsoft’s Games With Gold program curtailing into its 5th year, it’s only fair that they pull out the big stops for such a monumental occasion, and so far they’ve proven to do so. January saw Ubisoft’s Zombi, Tomb Raider: Underworld, Army of Two and The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III…

Defunct Review –…

485
15 bucks… for a game that can be completed it in 30 minutes? Uhhhhhhhhhh-   I always seem to get bad luck picking the games that can be completed in minutes. I’m here for a long time and a good time, so we can’t have lulls where I’m like…
