When a game is reviewed at Guide Fall, we attempt to play it with unbiased eyes and a clean slate, regardless of previous entries or headlines regarding the development/publishing team. Our goal is to give our readers a synopsis of the game, along with a basic understanding of what they can expect from the experience.
