A beautiful, difficult, and masterful swan song for 2D platforming on the Xbox One. Buy it if you have any interest in the genre.
Death Stranding is definitely a game that stands out from the crowd, but on balance, I’m not sure it stands out for good reasons.
Course creators can look forward to an amazing game-making tool set whose depth is matched by its accessibility, while players have a functionally endless set of Mario courses to dig through over the course of years.
There are better ways to get your superhero action fix, but there are worse ones, too. Crackdown 3 is at least worth a try.
Try it if you're looking for a novel take on a time-tested 2D gaming formula.
Buy it if you're looking for deep, twitchy multiplayer action. Try it if you'll be sticking to single player.
Try it if you really want to see how hard it is to make branching narrative work on this scale. Otherwise, just catch up on Westworld.
If you have a Switch, get this game. If you don't have a Switch, get one, then get this game.
Those with a high tolerance for repeating difficult 2D shooting challenges should buy it. Everyone else should try it in Simple mode or just by watching on YouTube.
