Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time is a decently good time. It offers more challenge than I expected but not so much so that it becomes frustrating. The original cast, the successful visual conversion to 3D, and the suitable story all come together to create one of the best tie-in games I’ve ever played.
The Last of Us Part II is a technical marvel of game design whose achievements can be completely overshadowed by a player’s reception of its story. While I sit comfortably in the camp of those who thoroughly enjoyed (if that is the right word as the story is often deliberately uncomfortable) the direction taken by Neil Druckmann and his team at Naughty Dog, I can see how people can walk away having had a completely different experience.
Making your way through the tower and uncovering more of the mystery and story is really enjoyable and the puzzles themselves offer enough challenge to make solving them satisfying without being too frustrating. It all comes together in a package that is appealing to not just me but my 5-year-old daughter too.
Kingdom Hearts III Re: Mind, while featuring some fun stuff and some of the better fights the series has to offer, is a minor addition to the base game set at a premium price. I would only recommend it to people who love Kingdom Hearts enough to experience and overcome everything a Kingdom Hearts game has to offer.
Yacht Club proves yet again with King of Cards that they are masters of their craft, lovingly creating games that boldly mix genres and head in directions you’d never guess a traditional platformer would go. The card game mixes things up nicely, creating breaks of challenging card-based strategy in between action platforming.
