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.

7 / 10.0 - Felix the Reaper
Oct 13, 2019

More puzzle types would have done Felix the Reaper a lot of good, but what's here is extremely charming and quite a bit of fun.

5.5 / 10.0 - Indivisible
Oct 7, 2019

Indivisible has some fantastic art and one of the most fun combat systems I've gotten to play with in an RPG. It's a shame it's brought down by a boring story, terrible writing, confusing moments, and some absolutely atrocious platforming

While I understand it's trying to emulate the movie, this ultimately makes Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son not any fun to play. Having to repeat the same tedious, overly lengthy, and often difficult, minigames over and over is just not fun. While I can say I was impressed with the storytelling and voice acting, and it really did feel a lot of effort went into making the game feel just like the movie. I just wish it was actually fun to play.

8 / 10.0 - The Surge 2
Sep 24, 2019

Perhaps most important, for the first time, I actually felt like I understood the Souls genre with The Surge 2. It's the first one that made me actually feel anything other than annoyed and confused and that I wanted to actually stick around to see the end of. It still has issues, and I'd love to see more enemy variety, but I can safely say that I'll be back for whatever Deck 13 has planned next.

2 / 10.0 - Devil's Hunt
Sep 17, 2019

Devil's Hunt is absolutely awful. A barely functional, extremely boring, completely nonsensical character action game.

Kind Words (lo fi chill beats to write to) has the one major goal of making the world less lonely, and it manages that exceedingly well.

9 / 10.0 - Gears 5
Sep 12, 2019

Gears 5's campaign is the best the series has seen, and Escape mode is a brilliant new addition. It's fun to play, beautiful to look at, and full of some of the best characters the series has ever seen.

Look, I honestly expected The Angry Birds Movie 2 VR: Under Pressure to have been an obvious stinker with no redeeming qualities. Instead, it's a perfectly solid local co-op game that can be worth a few runs with some friends. Is it great? Nah. Does it have issues? Certainly. But don't be like me and just turn it away because of its dubious origins. More VR games should look at catering to the local co-op crowd anyway.

5.5 / 10.0 - Creature in the Well
Sep 5, 2019

While it has a fantastic high level concept, Creature in the Well quickly realizes it has no idea what to actually do with it and becomes a repetitive slog before long.

7 / 10.0 - Knights and Bikes
Aug 27, 2019

Knights and Bikes is a fun, frantic, top-down adventure game with some light puzzle and combat elements that I imagine would be more appreciated by either a younger crowd or a parent playing with their kid. If you're looking for a solid co-op adventure, this can easily fill the void. Even solo it's still fun enough to be worth a look. Just be ready for a few awkward moments, and a seriously terrible UI.
