Moebius: Empire Rising review

History doesn't repeat itself, as the mildly entertaining Moebius falls well short of Jane Jensen's best efforts from the past.

Jazzpunk review

This completely offbeat comedy adventure scores big with the laughs, though its story is a bit of a blank slate.

Guise of the Wolf review

There's no two ways about it: this shoddy werewolf adventure bites, in all the wrong ways.

Like its nameless protagonist, this is an unassuming little adventure that provides a charming romp through Scandinavian-inspired folklore.

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs review

The spin-off sequel is another deliciously disturbing horror adventure, though it can't hold a candle to the panic-inducing fear factor of the original.

This diabolical assassination adventure alternates between a bloody good time and a helluva lot of frustration.

Papo & Yo review

This courageous PS3 blend of platforming adventure and allegorical child abuse story is both moving and monstrous at times.

Resonance review

This impressive retro sci-fi thriller is sure to strike a chord with adventure fans, both for its complex story and challenging, multi-character gameplay.

Corrosion: Cold Winter Waiting review

This indie horror adventure lacks the chills its subject matter demands, while the story and gameplay suffer from several key problems.

Dear Esther feature

It may not even be a game, but this beautifully surreal story-driven exploration offers plenty to write home about.
