Rob Kershaw's Reviews

Co-founder of Jump Dash Roll. I've been gaming since the days of the Amstrad. Huge RPG fan. Planescape: Torment tops my list, but if a game tells a good story, I'm interested. Absolutely not a fanboy of any specific platform - the proof is in the gaming pudding.

Perfectly treading the line between game and film, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is interactive storytelling at its best; a evocative, devastating and ultimately triumphant portrayal of love, loss, death and reunion which fully deserves all of the plaudits it will no doubt receive.

Brimming with atmosphere and the kind of dialogue that Telltale Games are acclaimed for, the high points of Episode 1 just about offset the jerky camera work, poor loading times and clunky QTE controls which blemished their previous effort, and which are far more pronounced here.

Whilst not quite in the same league as the previous season's episodes, All That Remains offers a potentially intriguing character arc for Clem, which helps paper over shortcomings in the overall storyline.

Smoke and Mirrors is a short but engaging chapter but it is hindered by some odd decisions around the choice mechanics and ongoing engine issues. More importantly, the length of time between instalments risks damaging the IP.

You'll not leave this episode happy, but the very nature of this series is to challenge and provoke; Telltale continue to refine and polish their craft to such an extent that even the misery of the narrative can't hold us back from wanting more - this second episode is a triumph.

9 / 10.0 - Year Walk
Mar 17, 2014

The beauty of Year Walk is in its discovery, and it's heartening to see a crossover of a more niche mobile title onto the PC platform, especially one which brings such atmosphere and creativity to the fore.

8 / 10.0 - Luftrausers
Mar 23, 2014

Luftrausers is an entertaining blast. Its two- to three-minute forays into the skies provide some of the most enjoyable arcade fun we've had outside of... well, an arcade, for some time. A crudely drawn cipher of Richthofen you may be, but there's no denying the majesty those basic pixels bestow upon the player, your inner Red Baron leaping for the chance to prove your worthiness amongst the clouds.

A Crooked Mile continues the Fabletown tale in fine form, elevating it above the weaker second chapter and putting it on a par with the first.

8 / 10.0 - ETHER One
Jun 10, 2014

As gamers, it's heartening to see such serious and prevalent issues being treated with the weight they deserve in a medium more inclined to hand you a gun and point you towards the finish line; Ether One is a decent alternative to mainstream mindlessness, a thought-provoking and moving experience for those willing to commit.

If you can get past the narrative dissonance introduced for the sake of agency, In Harm's Way is still a cracking entry in the season with a few super twists, a truly satisfying punch-the-air moment, and an ending which leaves you in no doubt that the momentum started in the previous chapter shows no sign of abating.
