Paul Tassi's Reviews

I write about video games full-time for Forbes, and I couldn't ask for a better job. I wasn't allowed to own a console until I was a teenager, so I've now compensated by playing them for a living. I usually favor shooters and action games, though I try to play a bit of everything. I own every console plus a gaming PC, and rarely a day goes by where I haven't written a few thousand words about video games. I also write books in my spare time, and have just finished my first sci-fi series, The Earthborn Trilogy.

9 / 10.0 - Outriders
Apr 7, 2021

Outriders has surpassed my expectations in almost every way. Months ago, I figured this would be another looter flop, but now, it’s one of the best current entries in the genre, and even with no “live service roadmap” at hand, it’s clear you could potentially extract hundreds of hours from it regardless. I plan to do just that.

5 / 10.0 - Godfall
Nov 18, 2020

I cannot recommend this game at full price. Again, as part of a free subscription it might be worth checking out and getting a few hours of slashy combat in. But I wouldn’t touch it unless the $70 asking price comes down by at least half, and even then, there are a half dozen other better games out this fall alone. I wanted to like Godfall. I never want to see games in this genre fail. But fail it does, and in a worse way than anything I have seen in a long while.

9.5 / 10.0 - Ghost of Tsushima
Jul 27, 2020

It is easily one of the best games of the entire PS4 generation, and given its competition, that’s saying something.

It’s remarkable, and it will stay with me a long while, just like the first.

9 / 10.0 - Borderlands 3
Sep 9, 2019

Borderlands 3 was worth the wait and will be a fixture in this genre for years to come. And I think few fans of the last two will be disappointed when they get their hands on it at last.

This is a big win for Massive, Ubisoft and players themselves.

7.3 / 10.0 - Anthem
Mar 4, 2019

Anthem may thrive. Anthem may fail. It has the bones to be something great but I am tired of saying that about so many games in this genre and five years after Destiny 1, I can’t believe we’re here yet again. Get it right the first time, because everyone is losing patience.

5 / 10.0 - Fallout 76
Nov 20, 2018

This is a huge, rare, total miss by Bethesda, and even if it’s improved in time, I can only judge it by the hours I’ve lost to it so far.

Again, it's more cake. Origins was delightful and Odyssey hits almost all the same notes, so there's a lot to like about it as well. But this series needs a bit of breathing room, and I hope it gets another bit of rest after this.

Assassin's Creed Origins improves from its past few installments in almost every way, yet it never quite reaches the heights of the games it tries to emulate.
