Alex Santa Maria's Reviews

Raised on a healthy diet of gaming mags at an Xbox LAN center, Alex is an enthusiast who loves shooters, roguelikes, and arcade-style games. He has an unhealthy obsession with bad movies, a love of the 1980s, and the skills to rack up a high score on your local pinball table. Also, he reviews video games, which might be the reason that he's listed on this website.

If players are just interested in the story of Marvel's Avengers and like what they've seen in the commercials and prereleases streams, the game provides just that. There isn't much more than that, unfortunately, and the multiplayer side of things doesn't seem to offer that much more in terms of variety or novel experiences. As a standalone Marvel experience, this gets the job done, but it certainly wasn't worth the years of buildup or the epic placement it has as one of the top AAA games of 2020. It's less of an Avengers: Endgame and more of an Ant-Man and the Wasp, a perfectly serviceable comic adventure that will draw players in when there's a new story available, but probably not before.

Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time is a surprisingly fleshed-out action game that should please both the Toonami faithful and those who miss a simpler time in the action genre.

Neon Abyss has perfected the Binding of Isaac formula, but its lack of creative energy and problems with similar locales drag it down considerably.

9 / 10.0 - Huntdown
Jun 25, 2020

Not only does Huntdown perfect what's been done in 2D shooters, it offers several new ways forward for the genre. A retro-minded tour-de-force that feels right at home in 2020.

9 / 10.0 - West of Dead
Jun 18, 2020

Thanks to a moody atmosphere and precise mechanics, West of Dead perfectly wraps the tense feeling of cover shooting around a solid roguelike core.

8 / 10.0 - Disintegration
Jun 10, 2020

Disintegration's meaty shooter campaign invites players into a unique world that's well worth exploring, but quirks in its gameplay and storytelling hold it back from true greatness.
