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.

7.5 / 10.0 - The Sinking City
Jun 25, 2019

The Sinking City has a fantastic story, atmosphere, and investigations, leading to something that feels genuinely unique. It's just a shame that it's brought down by an overabundance of crummy combat and glitches.

2.5 / 10.0 - Bubsy: Paws on Fire!
May 26, 2019

At its peak, Bubsy: Paws on Fire! is a generic runner that brings nothing new to the genre other than messed up hitboxes, poor controls, and awful padding. It also tries to be a boring SHMUP for some reason.

8.5 / 10.0 - Observation
May 21, 2019

Observation combines weird sci-fi and cosmic horror with clever adventure gameplay and amazing atmosphere.

5.5 / 10.0 - Days Gone
May 13, 2019

While it tries a few unique things, Days Gone's awful writing, abundance of glitches, and boring cookie cutter gameplay doesn't really make it worth spending time on.

May 3, 2019

Jupiter & Mars is lovely to look at and listen too. I just wish it was actually fun to play.

8.5 / 10.0 - Ghost Giant
Apr 30, 2019

Ghost Giant's fun puzzles and lovely story are well worth experiencing for anyone who may have access to PSVR.

Immortal Legacy: The Jade Cipher's clunky controls and iffy late game bosses hold back what is a fun, if weird, VR first person shooter.

9 / 10.0 - Katana Zero
Apr 18, 2019

Katana Zero's gameplay is genuinely fantastic. It's the perfect choice for someone looking for the next frantic and challenging indie darling.

8.5 / 10.0 - Heaven's Vault
Apr 16, 2019

Heaven's Vault manages to make me look forward to learning a new language, which is something I honestly never thought a game could do.

One Finger Death Punch 2 manages to take a simplistic gameplay system and turn it into one of the most bizarrely addictive score chasers I've ever played.

3 / 10.0 - Falcon Age
Apr 9, 2019

The titular falcon in Falcon Age is awesome. Sadly, it's also about the only good thing the game has going for it.

9 / 10.0 - Islanders
Apr 4, 2019

Islanders is a deceptively simple puzzle game where you build little cities to score points. More importantly, it's the absolutely perfect game for making beautiful picturesque villages you can fall asleep and dream about.

Take Us Back wraps up Clementine and AJ's story in a satisfying way, developing both characters and making sure the conclusion is worth sticking around for. Getting to finally put Clementine's story to rest is a doozy.

7.5 / 10.0 - Vignettes
Mar 28, 2019

Vignettes' puzzles and charm manage to overcome a few segments that don't work very well.

A fantastic story and presentation makes The World Next Door worth taking a peek at. I just wish the gameplay could hold up as well as those aspects.

9 / 10.0 - Devil May Cry 5
Mar 14, 2019

Devil May Cry 5's few minor flaws are blasted away by one of the best combat systems this side of gaming. Each fight is a treat, each boss is a challenge, and I loved ever second of it.

2 / 10.0 - Drowning
Mar 6, 2019

Drowning's story starts boring, if relatable, and ends on a note that left me baffled. I don't know what the intent was, but this isn't going anywhere good.

When the Darkness Comes is a surprisingly smart horror game that manages to blend in introspective narrative elements seamlessly.

7 / 10.0 - Anthem
Feb 22, 2019

Anthem's fast-paced shooting gameplay is a ton of fun, but it suffers from long loads, repetitive missions, bad filler, and an iffy story. Still, this is an extremely solid base for more content.
