Erik Kain's Reviews

I'm a video game and TV critic writing at Forbes. I've been playing video games since before the NES, cutting my teeth on old-school computer games like Missile Command and Asteroid before moving on to platformers like Super Mario Bros. and Battletoads. These days my favorite games are the Souls series and turn-based stuff like XCOM.

I'm in no hurry to be done with the world of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. It's the best game I've played since Bloodborne.

9.5 / 10.0 - GRIS
Jan 3, 2019

Go play this game, and if you have a chunk of time, play it all at once. Spanish developer Nomada Studio has created something truly special.

If you're only here for the campaign, there's no reason for you to buy Black Ops 4. But if you're a multiplayer gamer and enjoy battle royale games, there's plenty of great, addictive content to keep you playing for months on end.

9.5 / 10.0 - Marvel's Spider-Man
Sep 5, 2018

Spider-Man is a fantastic action game with great movement and combat and a compelling story that's only dragged down from time to time with boring missions and QTE-based boss fights.

The Nintendo Labo Variety Kit is a great interactive model/science kit to put together with your kids. If you like building or tinkering with stuff, you'll like this. If that's not your thing, you might find it tedious. Not a ton of replay value, but the construction seems sturdy. Overall, a very unique new 'game' for the Nintendo Switch.

9 / 10.0 - Far Cry 5
Mar 27, 2018

Far Cry 5 is certainly more of the same thing, but with enough changes that it feels fresh.

The fighting itself is absolutely glorious for both fans and non-fans of the series, and for both casuals and hardcore fighting gamers. You just can't lose with Dragon Ball FighterZ. Well, unless you lose in a fight, that is.

9 / 10.0 - Call of Duty: WWII
Nov 22, 2017

All told, despite the game's flaws and inexcusably rough launch, I've been very happy with it and absolutely recommend it to anyone who's been sitting on the fence. For those of you who haven't touched a Call of Duty game in a while because of the sci-fi stuff, now's a good time to get back into the fray.

While it's fantastic to have a shooter out on the Switch at last, I still prefer my PC version.

If you've waited this long to play Skyrim you can wait a little bit longer. Then again, if this is your first time with the game, well, maybe it's worth it after all.
