Chad Johnson's Reviews

I've been gaming for as long as I've been old enough to hold a controller. Expert in all things horror but also enjoy fighters, brawlers, and FPS games.

As a Freshman offering, BLOODIOUS GAMES has delivered what I am sure will be a cult classic that adds them to my short list of favorite horror developers.

I was expecting some smarter jokes, not the same dick jokes I’ve heard since sixth grade.

If you’ve never played the original, Destroy all Humans! 2 Reprobed is the best option available to you, and if you grew up with this as a favorite, you’ll likely find a lot to love here.

A worthy addition to the growing catalog of Souls-like games on the market, especially if you can find the humor in some of the worst aspects of them.

The varied set pieces really capture the grimy, gritty nature of the crime that permeated film and TV during the late 90s with a surprising level of detail.

5 / 10 - The Chant
Nov 8, 2022

The most terrifying aspect of The Chant is how broken the end result really is. As a freshman release, it’s a strong one, but it definitely needed some additional polish to be something even remotely playable.

This is the video game equivalent of dipping crackers into milk.

7 / 10 - NEScape!
Jan 13, 2023

Being a point-and-click game developed for a system not really known for this genre, NEScape manages to fit a full-on escape room experience on a cartridge if you still have your old grey beast laying around.

Feb 12, 2023

If you are the creative type, you can easily hop into a Minecraft-ish world to quickly make the 90’s era shooter of your dreams, all using legally safe knockoff assets of games such as Turok, Wolfenstein 3D, Quake, Doom, Bioshock, and many others.

8 / 10 - Post Void
Mar 27, 2023

At the end of the day Post Void is a budget title that is well deserving of your cash, despite a heavier reliance on luck than true skill. It’s a unique shooter that is addictive as it is frustrating, and with an asking price of less than the cost of a meal at your favorite fast food spot, you could do much worse with your money.

7 / 10 - Saga of Sins
Mar 29, 2023

Saga of Sins manages to set itself aside from other Metroidvania-style games thanks to its unique aesthetic that goes all in with the religious themes and throwback gameplay. While it doesn’t get everything right, its sins are minor and could be easily overlooked if you choose to aid Cecil in his journey.

The visuals have come a long way from the first entry while keeping the retro visuals intact, almost like going from an Oregon Trail vibe to something that could’ve realistically been released on the Super Nintendo

Easily the weakest game in the series.

About as much fun as an anal probe without consent or anesthesia.

One of the most entertaining modern-retro games I have played in quite some time.

Layers of Fear is easy to recommend to new players with an affinity for psychological experiences.

It scratched the itch I have for more Elden Ring without feeling overly difficult for the sake of being difficult.

One of the most enjoyable co-op experiences.

I easily spent more time sitting in lobbies and loading screens than in the actual game. In one instance I cycled through lobby after lobby for more than an hour failing time and time again due to either a disconnect, not enough players, or when I was holding my ground in an attempt to try out the last of the characters I hadn’t got to in my other sessions. The success of the game will likely hinge on how the online community runs with it, and since there isn’t an offline component, there’s a good possibility this will be dead on arrival and will shred your money like a chainsaw to the gut.

8 / 10 - Quake II
Aug 18, 2023

At the end of the day, it looks and plays like a game from 1997. This is still a great game, and if this is the only way you can experience it in 2023, I would recommend it – but don’t expect the same level of care that was given to the likes of Doom 64, Quake, or Doom 3. Except for Quake 64. That one still kicks so much ass it almost makes up for the mild shortcomings in the other options.
