Game review: Serial Cleaner – crime-scene clean-up concept is great, but like all bad stealth games, it’s repetitive

Serial Cleaner

Curve Digital

3/5 stars

A great idea can be sometimes easy to come by. Great execution, on the other hand, can often be a little harder. You probably know people who believe their genius plans are going to take the world by storm, but in fact their ideas rarely bear fruit.

Game review: escape a communist hellhole in Black the Fall

Serial Cleaner (available for PC and PS4) probably should not have gone further than a late night light-bulb moment. In the game you are a professional cleaner – one of those guys in hitman movies who do the dirty work once all the killing’s done. The crime scene clean-up concept’s great, but it sounds better than it actually is.

The gameplay is classic stealth, following the old school Metal Gear Solid formula of evading the fuzz while hiding dead bodies. On those rare occasions that it works well, Serial Cleaner stands

Serial Cleaner for Xbox One review: A blood-splattered stealth puzzler that’s well worth $15

Serial Cleaner is one of those rare titles that show up every now and then and do something unique.

In Serial Cleaner, your job isn’t to run around shooting villains or being a gangster. Instead, it’s your job to clean up the mess after various scenes of carnage have already unfolded.

Working for various shady characters, Bob “The Cleaner” Leaner travels from hit to hit, steam cleaner in hand, removing evidence, mopping up blood, and disposing of dead bodies. Serial Cleaner is certainly among the most unique games I’ve played so far on Xbox One, but is this stealth ’em up worth $15, or is it taking you to the cleaners?

Serial Cleaner takes place in the 1970s, and it draws more inspiration from movies than video games. Indeed, you can even discover hidden film reels and unlock

The Last Time review

What is it like to get old and harbour guilt for a mistake made decades ago? How would you react? Bottle it up and alienate those around you? Seek help? End your life? This is a question brought up on multiple occasions throughout The Last Time, a very short but elegantly simple and wonderfully written point-and-click adventure from indie creator Daniel Black of Big Cow Studios.

The game centres on Jack Glover, a long-retired cop in England who continues to be haunted by an incident from his final case forty years earlier. Now residing at a rest home, Jack spends his days alone and in solitude, still paying penance for his errors long ago. However, when a dangerous situation linked to that fateful last case forces Jack out of his self-imposed exile, he takes to the streets of London once again. Without the help of a badge or any connections from

TV review: BBC America’s ‘Dirk Gently’ is surreal, silly

‘Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency,’ 8 p.m. Saturdays on BBC America

Three stars (out of four)

What is a “holistic detective”? Who knows? Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett), who claims to be one, says he has the ability to find connections between everything. 

This puzzles his newly recruited assistant, Todd (Elijah Wood), but Todd goes along, because he’s in desperate straits and also because he has seen some very strange things recently, including himself, in a hotel hallway.

If you’re inclined to spend much time analyzing the rules here, perhaps you’d be better off reading the 1987 Douglas Adams novel on which the series is based, or at least reading it first. (Adams aficionados, however, have already complained that the adaptation by Max Landis doesn’t do the book justice.)

On its own, the best way to watch the TV series, arriving Saturday on BBC America in the United States and Netflix in other part of the
