    ESport Manager has a solid premise and some cool simulation elements but the actual matches are way too easy to exploit.

    If the developers tightened up Fin and the Ancient Mystery's gameplay, it could be a rather enjoyable 2D action RPG.

    It may have a promising premise but Post War Dreams executes its vision poorly and it's definitely not optimized for consoles.

    Hopefully, Supermassive Games can learn from what went wrong here and apply it to their next projects. For now, Man of Medan is simply not worth playing and I recommend skipping it entirely.

    With so many must-play retro shoot 'em ups available on modern consoles, Ghost Pilots ends up being one disappointing game.

    Although its sense of uneasiness is well done, everything else about Shadows 2: Perfidia is far too basic to be thoroughly enjoyable.

    Although The Forbidden Arts has a lot of potential, its gameplay is so loose and unsatisfying that it's hard not to be disappointed.

    I'm fairly certain that Epic Clicker Journey is the best game where you just tap on a screen but that's not really saying much is it?

    If you're looking for a must-have local multiplayer game then Tetsumo Party isn't that but it is fun for the few minutes that it lasts.

    If Let's Go Nuts had tighter and more challenging gameplay with cleverer stage designs then it would be a much better platformer.

    Bitlogic's gameplay is simply clunky and it regularly relies on guesswork and tedious retreading so it's a tough game to enjoy.

    If Bus Fix 2019 is some kind of joke then it's done a great job of punking me with its downright unplayable gameplay and lame premise.

    If the fact that it's titled Redneck Skeet Shooting isn't enough of a red flag, allow me to say that this is one terrible game.

    In the end, no goofy-looking googly-eyed cactus can save this irritating game from being yet another silly indie experiment.

    If Medusa and Her Lover had more engaging gameplay and featured a much longer campaign, it would be a worthwhile VR experience.

    Gamers who enjoy finally beating levels after countless attempts will like Kid Tripp but everyone else should avoid this frustrating runner.

    Indie games that don't do enough with already established formulas are disappointing and unfortunately, Scrap is one such game.

    If you're looking for a basic tower defense game to chill out with then Duke of Defense is certainly a capable albeit lackluster indie.

    If you thought the Wii had some terrible chicken-themed games then you probably haven't played Chicken Rider. It's clucking awful.

    Blood & Truth's story is about as gripping as trying to hold onto a bowling ball with greased up hands and its gameplay doesn't do much to make up for that. Add in a bunch of glitches and goofy moments and you're left with one disappointing VR experience.

    Feather is the gaming equivalent of an ASMR video. Some folks will dig it while others will wonder why it even exists.

    After having a few laughs at the utter ridiculousness of it all, it's difficult to thoroughly enjoy the irritating gameplay of Safety First!

    Considering Hotline Miami is a widely available and far superior game, why anyone would want to play 12 is Better Than 6 is beyond me.

    Those looking for a unique skill-testing arcade-style game could have half an hour or so of fun with Neon Caves but that's about it.

    The chaotic real-time action of Dungeons & Aliens is fun for a short while but it slowly devolves into a frustrating mess.

    In the end, at least Windscape's graphics are fairly snazzy and you get a super-cool shield to pair with your weapons when you craft them. The maintenance wrench actually has moving parts and the shield that it comes with has a giant gear around it that moves in sync with the wrench. If the entire game had that level of love and finesse, it could have been a real gem.

    The Occupation is a classic example of a concept with great promise but poor execution. The massive amount of bugs that hamper progress and the lack of a proper stealth system constantly get in the way of being able to enjoy this admittedly unique experience.

    I'm sure the developers of Crimson Keep had a clear vision of a fun dungeon crawler in mind but what they actually made is one of the worst games that I've played in a long time. Here's hoping they go back to the drawing board before working on their next game.

    Seeing as it's not as good as classic shooting gallery arcade games, why anyone would bother with Guns'n'Stories is beyond me.

    Overall, Fimbul is a mess. I wanted to like it due to its use of Norse mythology as it truly felt like a journey to Jotunheim, not just an action game with some Norse stuff thrown in but with combat that never felt satisfying, an annoying uncontrollable camera, a handful of glitches, and gameplay that I definitely don't want to dive back into, it's a hard game to recommend to anyone.
