As Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is considered to be a prologue, the game only takes about 20 minutes to complete, bringing out what we should expect in the upcoming The Phantom Pain. With the Big Boss story arc in place once again, we will inevitably know how the Patriots are built.
Grand Theft Auto V showcases the masterpiece of an open world action adventure title that Watch_Dogs and other open world games have failed to deliver. The mind-blowing graphics, alluring gameplay experience, and the perfect online mode makes Grand Theft Auto V a deserving game to be awarded with Game of the Year title of 2015!
Color Guardians is not too shabby as a fast-paced side-scrolling platformer title. Despite its lack of voice-over and better dialogue, the game can be or not be worth your time. It boils down to the gamer's preferences. But if you ask me, based on my review and experience on the game, it's a fair platformer game but Color Guardians is not worth purchasing if you're a short-tempered player.
Overall, Hatred is an impressive shooter with solid gameplay elements of its genre. The lack of narrative, weapon choices, and some minor bug crashes were the game's downfall at major categories in this review. However, the almost great shooting gameplay touch of Hatred is the glory of them all. It's not great a game but it's not a horrible title either. Just good enough.
Overall, Batman Arkham Knight is still a great game despite its optimization issues. I already used Rocksteady's configuration advice for graphics and it already gave me a great experience in the gameplay. The story was spectacular, graphics were great even on Low how much more if we can set it on High after Rocksteady fixes the game, and the overall experience was fantastic. Batman Arkham Knight is a game where players can now experience what a Batman game should be and the epic conclusion of the Batman Arkham franchise.
Rocket League is a fun and addicting battle cars sports game with lots of intensity and great core mechanics that proves to be a great sports video game of 2015. Overall, Rocket League is a fun and addicting sports game and a great eSports title addition. The game's optimization is very impressive, core mechanics are easy to learn and to get by, and the stunning graphics which overlooks the lack of LAN feature and still makes this game a great candidate for Best Sports Game of 2015.
StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void gives what a final-chapter should be. The compelling story of the Protoss and their struggle to fight for their freedom and legacy marks the closure of the StarCraft narrative; with having all of the old favorite units back makes the trilogy complete. En Taro Artanis!En Taro Zeratul! En Taro Adun! En Taro Tassadar! And En Taro Artanis!
Star Wars Battlefront is yet another arcade shooter that Star Wars fan didn't quite expect as a successor of the critically-acclaimed Star Wars Battlefront II. With the lack of content, game modes, heroes, customization, space battles, and the prequel era – the game is quite a disappointment to Star Wars fans. Despite these negative factors of the game, visually Star Wars Battlefront is stunning. It brings the game to life and gives a half experience of what a true Star Wars game should be in the first place.
Overall, the Hitman reboot is something I expected for a stealth game. The franchise reboot installment went to a path of letting players experience what an ultimate assassin should be, it didn't disappoint, but with all the server issues plus the 90% to be always-online overthrows the long-term experience of what Io Interactive wants to give to its players. Until the servers are fixed and stable, it's the first impression that makes the game worth buying.
Overall, Firewatch is a game you want to spend time in if you just want pure conversation and story. The narrative is what makes this game great even if it's a 5 to 7 hours of gameplay. And if you want to have pure adult-rated amusing conversations and jaw-dropping views of landscapes, then Firewatch is the game you definitely need to try out.
With all awesomeness and exciting gameplay of Trackmania Turbo, it is your type of racing game where you get to be hooked up again to just play and beat those damn scores. You want to be best in the world or in your country? Then be sure to get into the driver's seat and fasten your seatbelt as this will be one hell of a ride!
Setting the server problems aside, The Division is satisfying at best. However, the game also gives you a lot of things to do in your first few levels below 10 which made the game's pace a little slow. The Dark Zone, cooperative missions, and a lot of things to discover would be the primary reasons why you will be back in the streets of Manhattan. This is the type of game where online open-world shooter players and MMO lovers will enjoy.
The Ratchet & Clank reboot is one of the best exclusive games I've bought so far. It was worth it for only $39.99 (Php. 1,895.00), it's pretty affordable for a remake on the PS4 unlike other exclusives which usually goes to a full-price of $59.99 (Php. 2,595.00). It offers a better reintroduction to the series for all newcomers. Aside from being almost similar to the old version, the fantastic improvement on its aesthetics, decent level design, great voice actors behind the game, smoother controls, and the cinematic feel makes this game worth adding to your Playstation 4 library without a doubt.
BATTLEBORN delivers the fun factor and all-around humor that you can get from a game. You can ditch the Story Mode and hop on the multiplayer side as that's where the game really shines. Despite its lack of a better narrative, the stability of the game's server, and its fun multiplayer concept can surely reel you in to get the game. Are you now ready to haul-ass and nuke some newbs?
With its most compelling story, great soundtrack, improved AI and gameplay, and its glorious graphics, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is a game that gives you a fascinating ending story of Nathan Drake's final adventure and an immersive cinematic experience unlike any other adventure game out there. If you own a PS4, don't miss out what Uncharted 4 has to offer!
Putting aside the bad multiplayer mode and experience, DOOM was fun at best! It was fast-paced, and it was satisfying – that glory kill move on Baron of Hell was awesome. Graphics surely caught my attention. The world of Hell and Mars in DOOM is one place that every hardcore first-person shooter lovers would get into all over and over again. It was surely, again, enjoyable, and it didn't disappoint me at all.
But even with the admittedly enjoyable boss fights, all the letdowns of Mutants in Manhattan gave me an impression that this was just another rushed game. The mechanics were simple to understand; but it surely lacked the local co-op mode, and missing the satisfying achievement that each hack n’ slash / beat ‘em up game should always have.
Disappointingly, the game didn’t offer much of a new style in gameplay in this episode. There are similar challenges on how you take out your targets, and only a few new “challenges” were featured in Marrakesh which makes it repetitive and lacks new features. Hitman – Episode 3: Marrakesh might be an episode not worthy to remember for others who were impressed with Paris and Sapienza.
