- Uncharted 2
- The Last of US
The Witch and The Hundred Knight was not a bad NIS game but certainly wasn't one of my favorites. As a huge Disagea fan I was left with some good and bad tastes in my mouth, mostly just relating to the quality of the port. I still think the game is worth checking out if you're looking to scratch the itch of a decent dungeon crawler, especially one that is so funny and dark like this game.
Battlefront was a game I highly anticipated, played like mad, and probably won't revisit. It was fun for the time I got out of it, but the lasting appeal, the lacking sense of progression, and the repetitive nature quickly pushed me away from the game. It's a perfect title for a die-hard Star Wars fan that wants to enjoy a cool multiplayer experience, but only if they are ready to play the same thing over and over again for a long period of time.
Zestiria does some interesting things with its battle systems but really falls short in terms of story telling and artistic presentation. Although I feel this title would make for a better entry point into the Tales of franchise, it hardly feels like one of the more stellar games in the series. Give it a shot if you're a die-hard fan, but take caution if you're new to the Tales of games.
Bedlam unfortunately didn't have very many high points for me, other than having some solid gameplay that was plagued by mediocrity in its world. The sound design was nice, the graphics were lackluster and the overall experience left me wishing for an overall better experience.
Story Mode is a solid attempt at giving all new meaning to creativity in Minecraft. The plot is set and it looks to be both interesting and fun. I'm looking forward to continuing the story Telltale has crafted and seeing everything they have in store for the game.
Overall, while it isn't some incredibly intense new offering, 4-II does enough to make veterans and newcomers happy. Normally I find myself bored slashing through hordes over and over, but 4-II had a certain charm and a much better experience that kept me going. I'd recommend it to anyone that hasn't played 4 before, or anyone who is a die hard fan.
Bigger, crazier and more spectacular than ever, Disgaea 5 doesn't disappoint and continues to be one of my favorite strategy franchises. While the pacing may be a bit slow, it doesn't detract from the overall quality of the game and it's absolutely worth picking up.
