Don Parsons's Reviews

I'm a tabletop RPG junkie and a video game critic who works as a news editor for TechRaptor. When reviewing games my focus tends to be more on RPGs, Adventure games, and Strategy games with a particular liking for turn based combat and deep interactive narratives.
7.9 / 10.0 - Endless Legend
Oct 23, 2014

With great ambitions come great opportunities. Endless Legends doesn't quite make it but is a solid title.

A tale of war, bigotry, friendship, and the human condition Valkyria Chronicles manages to combine a captivating story with a unique combat system!

Not A Hero is a well made game that skewers the political elements it takes aim at with some excellent game play to top it off.

8.5 / 10.0 - Persona 5
Dec 24, 2017

Persona 5 manages to combine style and substance with the most refined gameplay the series has seen, with some smart writing that doesn't quite always hit the mark

8.5 / 10.0 - Frostpunk
May 1, 2018

Frostpunk is a compelling experience with a smart and interesting take on the genre that might not have the emotional punch you were looking for.

3.5 / 5.0 - Millennia
Mar 25, 2024

Millennia is an interesting, if flawed, take on the civilization-like experience that could be so much more with polish and time taken to it. It’s worth experiencing if you like these types of games, but it’s not going to revolutionize the genre, or dethrone Civilization anytime soon. With some polish and the right updates, it can get better, but for now it's a good, but flawed experience.

3.5 / 5.0 - Broken Roads
Apr 10, 2024

Broken Roads is a cult classic in the making. It hearkens to the best parts of games like Fallout 2, and many other CRPGs of the '90s, and it fits right in alongside classic Fallout and the Wasteland games. It’s flawed in some areas, with bugs in spots, but it offers tremendous role-playing and storytelling that make it more than worth your time to spend upwards of thirty or more hours in post-apocalyptic Australia.
