Samuel Guglielmo's Reviews

My name is Samuel Guglielmo and I like to write about video games. I started playing games when my dad brought home a PlayStation when I was 5 or so, and haven't really stopped since. I have a strong preference towards more action-ey games, but do enjoy artsy fartsy walking simulator games from time to time. I also want to love RTSes but am bad at them. Honestly unless its realistic sports, realistic racing, or a 4x game I'll probably enjoy it. Unless it's bad.
4.5 / 10.0 - Bound by Blades
Nov 28, 2022

Bound by Blades tries to combine wholesome aesthetics with a fast-paced boss rush, but bad bosses and wonky mechanics prevent this from really going anywhere interesting.

3 / 10.0 - Gungrave G.O.R.E
Nov 22, 2022

Gungrave G.O.R.E promises to shake you to your Gungrave core, but mostly ends up as a Gungrave chore. Before long I was Gungrave bored of the Gungrave lore and my trigger finger was Gungrave sore. Here's hoping they can fix things up if we see a Gungrave four.

8 / 10.0 - Somerville
Nov 14, 2022

Some clever puzzles, great visuals, and a solid story help carry Somerville through its occasional rough spots.

A Little to the Left has some really fun puzzles, but the game needed to be organized a little better.

7.5 / 10.0 - Chorus
Dec 3, 2021

While the story is nonsense and some of the elements don't feel that great, Chorus' high-intensisty space combat is so good it leaves me wanting more every time.

7.5 / 10.0 - In Sound Mind
Sep 27, 2021

While some obscure paths and crashing issues hold In Sound Mind back from greatness, the game still has a lot going for it. A fantastic story, great exploration, and some genuine scares make this indie horror worth seaking out.

7 / 10.0 - Weaving Tides
Jun 16, 2021

Weaving Tides is a wholesome adventure with a fun story and clever puzzles that's occasionally let down by repetitive combat.

Having a hot werewolf can't save Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood from its many problems. A boring story, super reptitive combat, wonky stealth, and atrocious butt rock are just some of the many issues.

6.5 / 10.0 - Project Wingman
Nov 30, 2020

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Project Wingman is the most blatent flattery I've ever seen. It's good, but never really manages to be better than "A good Ace Combat fan game."

The Last of Us Part II combines powerful story telling with frantic gameplay and beautiful graphics. Turns out Part II was a good idea after all.

4.5 / 10.0 - Waking
Jun 16, 2020

Waking tries to be a very unique experience, but all it manages to do is be way too long, frustrating, and unintentionally hilarious

3.5 / 10.0 - Liberated
Jun 1, 2020

Liberated tries so hard to rock the comic book aesthetic while telling a story about Big Brother. Sadly, it mostly just falls flat thanks to bad gameplay and crummy moments.

Someday You'll Return has some intersting ideas that mash together in a bit of an odd way, and can be worth experincing if you don't mind a crummy story, bad horror stealth, and occasionally iffy puzzles.

7 / 10.0 - The Shattering
May 1, 2020

The Shattering has a lovely setting and really interesting story, but is let down by a few iffy scenes and too much pixel hunting.

Final Fantasy VII Remake is beautiful, a ton of fun, and manages to bring one of the jRPG classics up to modern standards with few issues.

Control - The Foundation is just more Control. That's not a bad thing at all if you liked Control, and it's not worth coming back for if you didn't.

6 / 10.0 - Stela
Mar 12, 2020

When it all clicks together, Stela makes for some beautiful platformer moments. When it doesn't, it's frustrating and obtuse.

2.5 / 10.0 - Omnibion War
Feb 26, 2020

Omnibion War is equal parts boring and frustrating, and doesn't manage to even come close to the classic games it was inspired by.

10 / 10.0 - Dreams

Already boasting one of Media Molecule's strongest campaigns, Dreams also has the creation tools that let you make the game of your dreams. They are as deep as advertised, and it's wonderful.
