This week certainly had a lot of releases. However, we only got a few review codes from developers. Here are the games reviewed by Sirus Reviews team this week:

Little Nightmares (PS4) – Provided by Bandai Namco
Tarsier Studios | Lexuzze Tablante | April 23, 2017
Score: 9 / 10

“Little Nightmares gives you what a platformer game needs to be. I enjoyed every bit of its level design and its creepiness. There’s nothing more I can say about Tarsier Studios latest title – it’s a nightmare you probably would love to spend your whole night in.”

Late Shift (PC) – Provided by Wales Interactive
CtrlMovie | Lachlan Bache | April 24, 2017
Score: 6.5 / 10

“For those who enjoy visual novels, or are looking for a Sunday afternoon in front of the couch for a casual playthrough, Late Shift is catered exactly for you. However if you’re looking for something little more fast paced, you could safely pass on this one.”

Mass Effect: Andromeda (PC) – Provided by Electronic Arts
BioWare | James Gopperton | April 25, 2017
Score: 9 / 10

“From the perspective of a new fan of the Mass Effect franchise, this game was a huge amount of fun and I never felt myself left out for not having played the other 3 Mass Effect games.”

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition (PS4) – Provided by Gearbox
People Can Fly | Leif Bornales | April 25, 2017
Score: 7.5 / 10

”Overall, I recommend this game if you ever feel the need to spend time on a game that offers its own twist to the FPS genre. If you’ve never played the original, this is a good time to play the game since you will be treated to its enhanced visuals.”

Slice, Dice, & Rice (PC) – Provided by Playway S.A
Dojo Games | Rachelle Tan | April 25, 2017
Score: 7.8 / 10

“I would personally recommend this game especially to the ones who are into duels and the ones with a competitive spirit to keep things lively. Lastly, if I am to describe this game with few words I would say it is easy to play, but hard to master.”

Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series: Tangled Up in Blue (PC) – Provided by Telltale Games
Telltale Games | Carlo Cutanda | April 26, 2017
Score: 7 / 10

“In the end, Tangled Up in Blue shows me that not everything fits into the standard Telltale Formula. Mechanics found in other Telltale games feel out of place in this title and decisions carried very little weight to what we were doing.”

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier: Thicker Than Water (PC) – Provided by Telltale Games
Telltale Games | Leif Bornales | April 27, 2017
Score: 8.5 / 10

“I hope that this game will still be able to reinvent itself and introduce us to more locations and characters in the future. But right now it seems that they slowed things down and just focused on the characters and not the location.”

Man O’ War: Corsair – Warhammer Naval Battles (PC) – Provided by Evil Twin Artworks
Evil Twin Artworks | John Fernandez | April 29, 2017
Score: 5 / 10

“As much as I want to enjoy Man O’ War: Corsair, I honestly cannot. Almost at every direction there is something that brings you out of it, needless to say it has its gems like the wind mechanic and interpretation of the Warhammer Fantasy world.”
