Lou Contaldi's Reviews

The pride of New Jersey, Lou Contaldi wears many hats. Besides DualShockers' Reviews Editor and the DualShockers' ShockCast host, Lou enjoys his time studying law, expressing bad opinions, and calling himself a "Burger Connoisseur" -- whatever that means. Lou began gaming on the original Game Boy and hasn't stopped since. A particular fan of Metroidvanias, visual novels, and adventure games, he dabbles in practially every genre -- regardless of skill level, or lack there-of.

8.5 / 10.0 - Super Mario Maker 2
Jul 10, 2019

Super Mario Maker 2 is the game that keeps on giving, while leaving enough room to build in the future--despite a few places for improvement.

6 / 10.0 - Far Cry: New Dawn
Feb 14, 2019

Far Cry New Dawn is both a magnificent re-imagination of the storied series, and a lackluster approach by Ubisoft plagued with repetition.

9 / 10.0 - Kingdom Hearts III
Jan 29, 2019

Kingdom Hearts III is a dazzling display from Square Enix; the best game in the universe, and among the best from the legendary studio.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy for PS4 and Xbox One is a fire-breathing hit, thanks to a deft remastering of one of the original PlayStation's best game franchises.

6 / 10.0 - Wonder Wickets
Nov 3, 2018

Wonder Wickets is firmly one of the better mini-golf games you are going to get on PC. While I don't see this as a game that will revitalize the genre, if you are looking to scratch an itch after playing Golf Story, this will be your game.

7 / 10.0 - Gal Metal
Oct 30, 2018

While there may be plenty of things I'd like to change in Gal Metal, the core of the game is an unmistakably fun time. With so many heavy hitters on the market in 2018, sometimes you need to just sit down, unwind, and out-play alien invaders with electrified versions of classical music.

9.5 / 10.0 - SoulCalibur VI
Oct 17, 2018

SoulCalibur VI is undoubtedly one of the finest fighting games of this generation, and one worth exploring even if you can't get into the broader fighting genre. With rich and complex campaign modes and robust gameplay, SoulCalibur VI is a game I will return to for years to come.

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner M∀RS is both an antique and gem of its time, and one worth reexamining–especially if you've got a VR headset. But before diving in head first into an Orbital Frame, run a diagnostics on whether you are interested in returning to a PS2 game.

SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy is a light fare for fighting games, but there is more than enough smart systems to keep fighting game aficionados interested. Even better, the game is a cute entry point for people new to the genre. So long as you aren't expecting a deep combat system or extensive PvP functions, you won't be let down. Either way, the fabulous SNK heroine cast will likely impress–one way or another.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 is the most polished football game on the market. Full stop. And despite all my nitpicking, FIFA will have a lot to prove when it rolls out later this month. Although PES 2019 takes some major blows, they make up lost ground with added variety and fine-tuning an already tight system.
