Kyle Hilliard's Reviews

Kyle Hilliard has been writing for Game Informer magazine and its accompanying website since 2011. He has a daughter he won't shut up about and can beat Mega Man X in about 1.5 hours.

Three Hopes features the often repetitive combat style developer Omega Force is renowned for, but enough dedicated Fire Emblem mechanics exist to make it feel like something more than a simple spin-off.

Being the titular One-Punch Man is fun, but the rest of A Hero Nobody Knows' repetitious fighting/action game hybrid is lackluster.

Zombie Army 4: Dead War doesn't break new ground in the co-op zombie gauntlet genre, but it adds a few unique mechanics that make it fun to tackle the hordes.

5.9 / 10.0 - Shenmue III
Nov 22, 2019

Rejoining Ryo Hazuki's quest to avenge his father is exciting, but Shenmue 3 feels like a game that has ignored the innovation and progress of the last 20 years of video game development.

8 / 10.0 - Pistol Whip
Nov 8, 2019

Pistol Whip is a VR highlight with fast-paced rhythm shooting, an exciting soundtrack, and an enticingly abstract art style.

6.5 / 10.0 - Indivisible
Oct 7, 2019

The core elements of Indivisible, like the story and the action, are interesting, but an overall lack of polish holds it back.

Sayonara Wild Hearts' music and art combine for a stirring, unique experience.

7.3 / 10.0 - Rad
Aug 16, 2019

Frustrations related to random abilities and level layout can be annoying, but the overall aesthetic is inviting. Successfully completing a run is always an exciting achievement

Having even a little bit of story context for why you're solving picross puzzles is nice, but the main draw here is more picross puzzles, Color Picross puzzles, and some added control options

The video game adaptation of the popular show emulates the '80s aesthetic well, but the action is boring and the missions rarely push you to do more than move from point A to point B

8.8 / 10.0 - Super Mario Maker 2
Jun 26, 2019

Building your own Mario levels isn't as exciting as it was in 2015 on Wii U, but the story mode is a lot of fun and the new tools lead to some novel experiences

7.8 / 10.0 - Gato Roboto
May 30, 2019

With its heavy Metroid inspirations, Gato Roboto can feel derivative. However, it plays well and the world and combat encounters are well-designed

Combat, puzzles, and exploration feel familiar and unspectacular, but the bizarre story and hilarious dialogue set it apart

8 / 10.0 - Supraland
May 2, 2019

What Supraland lacks in production value, it more than makes up for with fantastic puzzle and level design

8.3 / 10.0 - World War Z
Apr 19, 2019

World War Z hews closely to the core tenants of the genre, but its zombies make the familiar monster feel unique. The story is interesting, but light enough that it knows when to stay out of the way

7.3 / 10.0 - Vacation Simulator
Apr 9, 2019

Going on vacation is an expectedly relaxing experience that doesn't demand much from the player, which makes Vacation Simulator play like an introductory VR experience

The fighting and visuals of the Rangers (and Goldar) are decent, but the modes, unlockables, and incentives to keep playing are limited

7 / 10.0 - Baba Is You
Mar 25, 2019

Baba is You is smart, but as later levels force you to consider more variables, the charm wears away

World Seeker lacks the detail of contemporary open-world games, but moving around and getting into fights is fun. The story and characters (new and old alike) are engaging all the way to the explosive finale
