"It looks and plays just fine, although the game is annoyingly slow with a story that's not much to write home about."
"It doesn't feel too bolted on, and instead adds more of the same good stuff that we all liked in the original."
"In short, it's not quite the triumphant return that this underrated adventure undoubtedly deserved."
"The story was a bit generic and the technical issues somewhat frustrating, however, looking beyond that, I enjoyed the rest of my quest."
"The story is great and the combat is spot on with interesting tactical elements and a narrative where choice seems to make a genuine impact."
"You can tell this was a labour of love, but possibly their biggest mistake was trying to deal with too much."
"A solid JRPG that offers some great storytelling, and I particularly enjoyed the strong emphasis on friendship and loyalty."
"There are plenty of things to see and do here, with a great campaign, multiplayer, and content creation tools ensuring additional longevity."
"While it's heavy on lore and therefore may not have broad appeal, turn-based tactics fans might still find enough to like here that makes it worth pushing through."
"It's a bit sluggish at the beginning, but I loved the mechanics surrounding my apocalyptic fetch quests across the wastelands of the future."
"There are a couple of things that we didn't love, however, if you like a '90s-inspired shooter with lots of action and secrets to find, check it out."
"Desperados III is a great experience; it's fun, tactical, and interesting, with a variety of creative ways for you to dispatch your opponents."
"There was a lot of dying and yes I found it too tricky at times, but the combat and the action was always engaging."
"Recommended to players who like a challenge and enjoy roguelikes and/or arcade shooters. If you're after a farming game, however, you might want to look elsewhere."
"We liked the atmosphere that the game was able to build - the graphics, premise and sound design all build a freaky and intense experience."
"It may not offer anything particularly new, nor is it massively long, but Fury Unleash is still bags of fun."
"All in all, we had lots of fun with Ion Fury, but this retro shooter won't be for everyone."
"All in all, Stranded Deep is good fun and will keep you entertained for a few hours."
"If you're looking for a zombie-filled experience that evokes the spirit of the '90s classics, replay one of the new Resident Evil remakes instead."
"Snow was well and truly what the doctor ordered and this is a hugely entertaining outing that lets you get to grips with some truly adverse terrain."
"If you can get on with the control system and the sometimes over-long battles, you will find an interesting and inviting adventure."
"If you bought Resident Evil 3 and are looking for more hours of zombie slaying, don't discount this addition. It might just surprise you."
"If you like RPGs with a tactical edge, then you might like the story-driven approach here."
"For those of you looking for something that will make you think but offers a bit more zip, it should prove a welcome change."
"Tonal concerns aside, Dead or School is a good game that offered quite a bit of fun."
