Review: Damsel

There's a little-known Australian exploitation flick called Thirst. Released way back in 1979, it stars Henry Silva as the head of a massive corporation that has made big business out of vampirism, kidnapping innocents, and siphoning their ...

Review: Red Dead Redemption 2

Getting lost in another world is a perfectly good way for some people to cope with problems in reality. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind got me through some really tough times: no matter what happened, at the end of the day I could rel...

Review: My Hero One's Justice

Do you know My Hero Academia? How about Boku no Hero Academia? If you’re aware of the blockbuster manga and anime series, that goes by either one of those names, then My Hero One’s Justice might just be the fighting game for y...

Review: Black Bird

Last year, the two best games on mobile didn’t come from King, or Nicalis, or Tencent. They came from Onion Games, a Japanese indie studio founded by Rule of Rose and Little King’s Story developer Yoshiro Kimura. Dandy Dungeon a...

Review: Spider-Man: The Heist

Spider-Man has been mixed up in a heap of relationships over the years and most of them are messy. Injecting one of them into a DLC of all places sets off all sorts of alarm bells, but Insomniac managed to keep The Heist grounded withi...

Review: Space Hulk: Tactics

Space Hulk is no stranger to the video game world. It's had multiple iterations that have tried to capture the feeling of the classic Warhammer 40K board game, but most if not all have fallen short. To attempt to right the drifting mass of ...

Review: Castlevania (Season 2)

(Note: This is a spoiler-free review of the first six episodes of Castlevania Season 2, however, there will be spoilers for Season 1) The first season of Castlevania was a surprise that I'm not sure many people were expecting. It was a soli...

Review: Suspiria

Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria is going to piss off so many people. Fans of Dario Argento’s 1977 original will be enraged by the changes. Fans of Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name will be appalled by how brutal, gruesome, and ...

Review: The Jackbox Party Pack 5

You Don't Know Jack has always been an innovative property. The very first YDKJ game in 1995 was one of the first titles to take full advantage of the storage space offered by then-new CD-ROM technology, and there's been plenty of...

Review: Nine Parchments

We've done a few late-in-the-game reviews before in Destructoid's history. If enough people ask, we'll do it! Such is the case for Nine Parchments, which actually launched in 2017 on PC, PS4 and Switch and 2018 on Xbox One. We've basically ...

Review: PowerA Enhanced Wireless Controller for Switch

As much as I love my Nintendo Switch, and I certainly do, it's the first console I've bought where I haven't exactly been going wild with buying extra controllers. On the GameCube, I bought nearly every new color Nintendo put out. With the ...

Review: Starlink: Battle for Atlas

I’d like to start this review off with a tale of Goofus and Gallant and hope to God the Highlights people don’t sue me for doing so. One day, Goofus and Gallant decide to buy the new toys-to-life game Starlink: Battle for A...

Review: Return of the Obra Dinn

This is the first game that actually made me feel like a detective. I've played tons of games that have tasked me with solving some mystery, only to have it boil down to either not being able to fail, or just plain easy and boring.  Re...

Review: Soulcalibur VI

Bandai Namco has a lot to answer for after 2012's Soulcalibur V. After gutting the beloved core cast and a number of single-player modes the series felt hamstrung, to the point where some felt that it could never come back. When in doubt, p...

Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has ushered in a new era of AAA: one where every studio and their grandmother tries to pack a battle royale gametype into their project. The thing is, Activision actually did it right, while also providing a strong...

Review: Daredevil (Season 3)

(Note: This review covers the first six episodes of the season and contains no spoilers) Matt Murdock has had a hard life. Just when you think our favorite superpowered blind lawyer vigilante has totally hit rock bottom, the extraordin...

Review: Halloween

Like all slasher franchises, Halloween has had its ups and downs over the years. Sure there's something to appreciate in even the worst of the eight original films and two Rob Zombie reboots, but it's hard to argue that the franch...

Review: Dragalia Lost

When Nintendo first announced it would enter the mobile market, I thought it was going to do things differently. I thought the presence of arguably the greatest game developer ever would shake up the market and put an end to the dominance o...

Review: The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories

We aren't, all of us, brimming with confidence about ourselves, our choices, and the narrative we've written in our short time here on Earth. I've been here the best part of four decades and I can honestly tell you that I'm still not comple...

Review: WWE 2K19

As God as my witness, my wrestling spirit was broken in half somewhere around 2002. WWE was moving out of the Attitude Era and into the era of prosperity, as Mr. McMahon had just taken down his arch rival Ted Turner in a triumphant shoot: t...

Review: Fist of the North Star - Lost Paradise

For many western '80s kids, Akira was their first introduction to anime, with Katsuhiro Otomo's dystopian classic being one of the first anime movies to get a major push by the mainstream media. For me, however, my first anime encounter was...

Review: The World Ends with You: Final Remix

Few games have made as big an impact on me as The World Ends with You. Though ubiquitous with the JRPG genre today, it was the first title to give me a taste of what life is like in modern-day Tokyo, igniting a fascination with any and all ...

Review: Overcooked 2 - Surf 'n' Turf

The recent New Game+ update for Overcooked 2 that added an unlockable fourth star on every level was a nice gesture for high-score chasers, and I'm still working my way through the lot. But, above all, I just wanted more kitchens. That's al...

Review: Marble It Up!

The one thing we need on Switch is a new Super Monkey Ball. Sega has been slumping when it comes to that property; the last one I played was at a Chuck E. Cheese's and was nothing but bad ticket-earning fodder. That's a pale comparison from...
