9.5 / 10.0 - The Final Station
Aug 31, 2016

Overall, The Final Station isn’t adding anything too new or revolutionary to the zombie shooter formula gameplay wise, but at this point what really matters is your motivation and the atmosphere the game takes place in that helps a game succeed in this genre. Tiny Build packed The Final Station full of both of those things and the end result is a surprisingly genuinely suspenseful 2D experience that combines train maintenance with zombie slaying.

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.

For those who have never played Final Fantasy XII or fans of the original, or those who want to give it a second shot, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is certainly the way to go.

Pillars of Eternity II gave me the tools and the inspiration to spin a yarn of my own design that rivals those told in my favorite epic fantasy series and novels with the opportunity to go back and do it all again and for that, Obsidian, I thank you.
