GENIE Reprise Review
I don’t know why I do this to myself sometimes, play these mundane games where in the first few minutes you’re knowing it’s going to be a nightmare slog. Well, anyways I sat through whatever GENIE Reprise was supposed to be continuing to think some deeper edge was going to appear but alas that was far from the case. Look, I enjoy a walking sim game every now and then but there needs to be something of substance to it.
Return to Grace Review
This is essentially what most would note as being a walking simulator game. Which is a fair assessment, but basically this is a narrative driven adventure game with light interactive elements. I actually quite like these types of experiences and instantly found myself drawn to the premise. The goal of...
While I’m all for trying out new things in gaming multiplayer, well I guess this is more derivative of Splatoon. Anyways, I’m always down to try out new multiplayer games though when it comes to Foamstars we get a rather noisy super quick twitchy game that doesn’t really have a whole lot to offer. The core of the game is based around 4v4 combat.
Skull and Bones Review
A mature pirate adventure actually sounds like a rather compelling gaming experience, particularly when one’s origins come from the foundations of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Alas, a decade past and what we have is a rather barebones meandering slow adventure that’s more akin to what Sid Meier’s Pirates accomplished ever so many decades ago.
RoboCop: Rogue City Review
"Dead or alive, you're coming with me!" Head to the hardened streets of Old Detroit in order to deliver the law, and be the hero that this grim city needs. Set between the second and third films in the series you step right into the shoes of Peter Weller’s Alex Murphy, better known as the iconic RoboCop!
Scars Above Review
This was one of those fairly generic sci-fi adventures where you take on the role of an individual that’s sort of lost on an alien planet as to say. You play as Kate, a fairly generic Lara Croft type character that’s on a shuttle out to greet this weird structure in space.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora Review
Like with the movie this is a case of spectacle over substance. It’s a lengthy experience, but unless you’re really into this world it’s a bit boring to play through. I’ve never been huge on the Avatar film franchise, but I thought in a gaming format it would connect with me more like the last effort from Ubisoft did and honestly this just didn’t hit the mark for me. It really is your typical sort of open world Ubisoft game, and not in the best of ways.
Prince of Persia The Lost Crown Review
It’s been quite awhile since we’ve had a Prince of Persia game. At least, a proper new entry and that time period has been about a decade and a half. We have here a return to form with a style reminiscent of that which is a Metroidvania, or well it hits that genre perfectly well. The adventure starts with a heavy focus on cinematics and establishing the world.
The Finals Review
This is a fast paced multiplayer shooter with a broadcasting to the crowd type angle. It’s supposed to be competitive, and offer objective focused modes for players to battle within. Being free to play it’s just about visual elements for microtransactions, at least from the launching point. The...
Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion Remastered Review
It was certainly a surprise to see that Turok 3 was going to be remastered. I had figured after the first two games and the years that passed that we had gotten all we were going to get from this series. At least from a touched upon, modernized perspective. With that, here we are talking about Shadow of Oblivion.
Gangs of Sherwood Review
This is yet another take on Robin Hood, with a bit of a steampunk type of concept applied. It’s cooperative focused, but doesn’t feature join in progress action but at least you do get a server browser I guess. It’s up to four players and honestly the game is really designed around that.
Skull Island: Rise of Kong Review
This game was a journey of trauma, not only for Kong but also for I. No seriously, this game dives deep into the traumatic events that took the life of Kong’s family. He witnessed both of his parents die and this sets the stage for the overall narrative, revenge. See, there was something here to work with but the end product is an absolute nightmare.
The Walking Dead Destinies Review
Well; the game certainly does run, so that’s something. The concept of The Walking Dead Destinies is actually rather fascinating. You replay the first few seasons of the show, or well the greatest hits and make choices that impact core characters. You choose to kill someone that didn’t die in one spot and that adjusts what happens later down the road.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare III Review
The events of Modern Warfare II weren’t too long ago but we continue that adventure with Price and the rest of Task Force 141. While there are a series of events that take place during this particular story, the team ends up essentially right where they start it. That...
Alan Wake 2 Review
It’s been a long thirteen years of waiting, but Alan Wake 2 has finally arrived. In all honesty I never expected to see this follow-up considering Microsoft and well Xbox didn’t support the original much. They also didn’t support a sequel, hence having to wait thirteen years.
Detective Pikachu Returns Review
Following the events of the original game and also somewhat the movie in a fun joking tie-in. Detective Pikachu Returns once again pairs together Tim Goodman with his talkative detecting pal Pikachu. The two have a unique connection where they can understand each other which creates a unique skill set for allowing the two to solve crimes.
Assassin's Creed Mirage Review
The Creed franchise has gone partially back to its origins with Mirage as the series aims to offer something more bite size. This was actually a rather refreshing change-up as it was much more manageable to work through and didn’t feel as though it would never end. With that,...
Forza Motorsport Review
"Racing to the Current Gen" It’s been quite awhile since the most recent entry in the Forza Motorsport, actually the longest gap in the franchise between releases. What we’re greeted with is a technically impressive track based racing game for the current generation, but alas one that could have used more content. That’s particularly felt since it’s been so long since the previous release.
Payday 3 Review
"Stealing with the Times" It’s been quite awhile since the previous Payday experience and while time has gone by, it would appear that the Payday series has largely stayed the same. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it will feel very familiar to those that have ventured into the series prior.
Alfred Hitchcock - Vertigo Review
The film collection of Alfred Hitchcock is legendary and his expertise is particularly displayed with the masterpiece Vertigo. So to share the name with a game it lends a certain level of expectation. Within the game Vertigo, they’re using that name while not really fully living up to that concept...
