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.

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.

4.5 / 10.0 - Re-Legion
Mar 11, 2019

Re-Legion has some fantastic ideas, but can't manage to execute any of them in a meaningful way.

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.

Kingdom Hearts III plays up to the series' strengths, leaving one hell of a closer for fans.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown has a few annoying elements, but that doesn't take away from the fact that it's exactly what the series needed for a great comeback.

Broken Toys continues The Walking Dead: The Final Season's interesting story and great character development while serving as a triumphant return for a season thought lost.

2.5 / 10.0 - Vane
Jan 15, 2019

Vane's first fifteen minutes are amazing. Then the game plummets in quality faster than a diving bird. Tons of glitches, obtuse puzzle, terrible controls, an awful camera, and stuttering frame rate keep Vane from being worth your time.

Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!! offers up a wok full of cooking fun. Once you get the controls down you'll be remembering lamb sauce with the best of them.

The Council's final episode fails to deliver a satisfying ending, nor a strong episode to a season that desperately needed it.

At several times while playing RollerCoaster Tycoon Joyride, I became convinced I died and this was my personal hell. In a world where we thought the worst RollerCoaster Tycoon game had already shipped, Joyride shows up to claim that spot.
