- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
- Mega Man III
- Mega Man X
In the end, I cannot recommend this game enough. The story is extremely engaging and written intelligently. Much like the previous installment, they handle the notion of time travel and its consequences with great care. Nothing about it seems too far-fetched, either. The series does detract from the humorous tone that it once had, though, but I’m not complaining about it one bit. The darker, serious tone still allows for some light-hearted moments, but when the drama kicks in, it does so in a way that makes you want to pay attention and keep pressing forward.
20XX is everything a Mega Man fan could want and more. The randomness of the game keeps every run fresh and there are enough game modes to keep you coming back over and over again. The only weakness is the lack of variety in the levels that it offers. Despite that flaw, it doesn't halt this game from being highly-addictive and insanely fun! Well worth the price tag!
Little Busters offers a great story with well-fleshed out characters. Their backstories make you feel an intangible connection to them which makes the big reveal of the story carry that much more weight to it. Whether you're new to visual novels or KEY in general or if you're a fan of KEY, it is highly worth your time picking this one up on Steam!
Mega Man 11 brings back that classic feel while giving it a fresh new look. The boss fights are memorable and challenging while the stages are thematic and very fun to play. While the game has a couple of flaws, Capcom still did an incredible job trying to recapture the nostalgia while bringing Mega Man into the HD generation.
All in all, it was still a great game from beginning to end with a nifty little twist once you "beat" the game. It's addicting and really fun to play and it makes me wish for more turn-based RPGs. Even if Square decides to re-use everything again, I really wouldn't mind seeing a Bravely Third. If you're a fan of classic RPGs, then I believe that this is a must-have title. Despite its flaws, it's still a charming game that gives you a great dose of nostalgia while providing you with hours upon hours of entertainment you find yourself coming back to after you put the game down thinking you've had enough!
Lightning fast-paced action makes a storied franchise feel fresh again. The game is simple, fun and addicting and the addition of a two-player mode is welcome. The cons lie in the two-player mode as you do have to rely on a bit of micromanagement (like bursting the fruit requires you to "kiss" each other). The game does make up for it with plenty of customization options and challenges that will keep you playing for hours.
Mortal Kombat 11 serves up everything that you would expect from an MK game. Gore, broken bones, fatalities, brutalities, great combat, and a solid netcode. The Story Mode was entertaining for a bit but felt a bit cheesy. The Towers and The Krypt are things you could skip if you don't care about cosmetics.
I was a bit torn on what to rate this collection. If you're basing it on the games alone and you're a first-time player, then this is easily a 4/5 star title. On the flip side, if you've already played, owned and beaten these games and already have the HD Collection that was released in 2012, then this is a 2/5 because Capcom didn't even bother adding anything worth re-purchasing this title for outside of owning it on current gen for convenience.
Vastly improved graphics and the ability to play as a customer character make Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet an attractive game. Even though you swap swords, fantasy and magic for guns and an apocalyptic dystopian world, the combat system leaves a lot to be desired on console. It feels like it was made for PC and the assist mode just makes combat feel more cheap than engaging. Still a solid improvement over previous games, though and still worth a play!
