Elisha Deogracias's Reviews

I'm a big fan of weird and niche video games! I grew up on DDR, Katamari Damacy, Elite Beat Agents, and Trauma Center, so you know I'm a pretty fun rhythm agent doctor (just kidding.) I dabble in freelance, so if you want someone to help out with a script or story for a gaming project or need something reviewed, let me know! You can follow me on Examiner or Twitter to keep up with my sporadically updated pages. May be a kid or a squid.

40 / 100 - Access Denied
Feb 22, 2019

Access Denied is a rather forgettable puzzle game that doesn't do enough with its mechanics to justify a recommendation. While there are scant moments of brilliance, there isn't much here to excite even the biggest puzzle fans.

90 / 100 - Downwell
Feb 22, 2019

Simple, sweet, and oh so stylish, Downwell is a perfect fit on the Switch. With its easy-to-learn controls, steep but fair difficulty, and some great looking pixel art, this is a must have for anybody wanting a little challenge on their handheld hybrid.

50 / 100 - Flood of Light
Feb 22, 2019

Flood of Light is a passable title for those that are hankering for a few hours of puzzle solving. While repetitive settings and cumbersome controls hamper the overall experience, there's enough here to justify the $4.99 price tag.

Save Me Mr. Tako is a decent 2D platformer with some great presentation and a loving throwback to the 2D platformers of the 90s, but unfortunately feels a bit too frustrating to enjoy for long periods of time.

A vast improvement from Subsurface Circular, Quarantine Circular is a standalone sequel that tells its succinct story through engaging characters, a nice storyline, and a shift in protagonists.

At times, Candleman: The Complete Journey can feel like a chore with its slightly erratic pacing and inconsistent tone. However, those that stick with it will find a surprisingly heartwarming story mixed with an innovative mechanic and some great environments.

Katamari Damacy Reroll is as simple, silly, and superbly entertaining as it was more than a decade ago. The main experience stays intact, but the remaster does enough to make anyone interested in this game smile. Here's hoping that Bandai Namco takes this reimagining and invests in the original sequel next.

The sum of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's parts is nothing short of excellent. From single-player to local multiplayer, there are very few flaws with the experience. Whether you're hoarding spirits in World of Light, spiking your friends in a versus match of Smashdown, or running through Classic mode with your favorite fighter, there is no shortage of smart, creative action to be had. That said, in a game so well assembled, its lackluster online portion stands out even more starkly. However, when taking Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a whole, that one blight does little to diminish the overall mastery on display. This is not a game Nintendo Switch owners should be caught without.

80 / 100 - I Am The Hero
Dec 12, 2018

I am the Hero is a short and sweet beat-em-up that mixes an accessible yet comprehensive gameplay system with some challenging gameplay and unique aesthetic. Pick this one up if you've got a hankering to destroy the forces of evil with punches and kicks!

Featuring a great value of three games in the package, the Persona Dancing Endless Night Collection is the best way to experience Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight. While a bit grindy later on, some killer tracks, entertaining gameplay, and a refreshing aesthetic, the games in this collection are chart-toppers.

85 / 100 - Warriors Orochi 4
Nov 6, 2018

Warriors Orochi 4 is a celebration of Koei Tecmo's Warriors series, and it's a great game to pick up for those interested in some good old hack-and-slash goodness. With its record-breaking roster of characters and some new gameplay mechanics, this is one adventure that is divinely entertaining.

50 / 100 - Joggernauts
Oct 26, 2018

While the presentation is charming and amazing, Joggernauts ultimately fails as a casual party game. With its unfair death mechanics and steep difficulty curve, it's one that will appeal to groups that want a challenge, less so for ones that want to have a fun time.

70 / 100 - Kero Blaster
Oct 24, 2018

Kero Blaster proves that going back to a genre's roots can be a refreshing experience. While marred by a sense of strict linearity and some barren background elements, it's a treat for those that want a solid run-and-gun title.

80 / 100 - Crayola Scoot
Oct 15, 2018

Crayola Scoot is a wonderful hidden gem that caters towards an all-ages demographic with a snazzy sense of style. With a great mix of missions, a killer soundtrack, and challenging opponents, you can color me shocked: This is something that kids and adults will love.

Where there are some rampant online problems, Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle is a nostalgic trip back to memory lane. A collection of solid titles with some robust local multiplayer and gameplay options make this one a no-brainer for newcomers or veterans of the genre.

The second, and maybe final, episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season has some great introductions and story arcs, but unfortunately suffers from some uneven pacing and a conclusion that puts our characters in a rough spot from which they may not recover. Suffer the Children, indeed.

While lacking in some areas, Code of Princess EX is a solid enhanced port that keeps all of the goofy charm and adds some performance improvements to the final package. This is one adventure beat-em-up fans should look at if they want a solid and humorous experience.

50 / 100 - FullBlast
Sep 18, 2018

FullBlast is a nifty little diversion for those that have a few bucks to spend on a shoot-em-up, but with lenient difficulty, generic presentation, and unremarkable gameplay, you might have a better time with another bullet hell game on the Switch eShop.

70 / 100 - Old School Musical
Sep 12, 2018

While bogged down by its postgame content and scant multiplayer offerings, Old School Musical is still a great time for those who want a nostalgic and comedic trip back to the 80s and 90s. Old School Musical's dazzling soundtrack and wonderful visuals should be experienced by those who want to boogie on down to the arcades.

The Pizza Delivery Boy Who Saved the World aims to be a cheesy but endearing visual novel, but with a very linear story and a host of other problems, it unfortunately needs some more time in the oven to get baked properly.
