Great if you like tough tactical games; a harder sell if you're merely a fan of the films.

You won't find more pure whimsy in a 2019 game.

No Nintendo remake has ever combined the beautiful and the familiar like this.

Should you have read this much of a Gears of War-related review, I imagine at least one of the above four modes sounds up your alley. Just because Escape is currently wonky in action doesn't mean it's not a unique and satisfying co-op action experience. The campaign's herky-jerky start is likely worth enduring for a certain brand of shooter fan. And both Horde and versus are likely to delight fans old and new for entirely different reasons.

I came out of Eliza with the sense that I'd been on a journey of juggling grief, hope, and joy through the existential dread that is living a modern, tech-filled life. And for that reason, I recommend this visual novel as a must-play experience.

Buy it if you have an ideal co-op partner, want a simpler co-op alternative to MMO-like shooters, or just really, really like newer Wolfenstein games. Otherwise, proceed with caution.

Wait until EA finishes the game, if that ever happens.

Feb 13, 2019

Do you like a game whose combat and discovery mechanics are entirely divorced from stop-and-wait delivery of lengthy, meandering dialogue, always spoken by over-eager actors with thick Eastern European accents? If so, you're in for some genuinely likable moments of character development; they're just firmly nestled in the kinds of overlong stories that might have you saying "get on with it, man" after a while. The spoilable plot beats, on the other hand, feel like fine B-movie cheese. Sometimes, these are full of scare-quote "important" messages freighted with fromage. (And sometimes filled with comically intense evil, too.)
