Josh Knowles's Reviews

I've been gaming for as long as I can remember and writing about video games since 2007. I have a Guinness Record hanging on my wall. Feel free to ask about it sometime so I can tell you the boring story of how I got it! My favorite game is probably Final Fantasy 6, although I love to absolutely rave about the latest games I happen to be playing at the time. I'm a big fan of wrestling and love to voice my opinions on the things I love on twitter. Swing by and say hey! I'm a father of two boys, whom each share my passion for games in their own ways.

The problem is, if Red Dead Redemption is perfect (which it is), 2 feels like more of the same but requires more patience than the original.

8 / 10.0 - Destiny 2
Sep 14, 2017

Destiny 2 is the game I was totally hyped to play three years ago, finally.

Even though I can take a sizeable time to complain about Breath of the Wild (and that’s not even talking about performance issues), the game is still a very good one. I would comfortably say that after an extensive period of playing Breath of the Wild, I do believe that it is one of the best Legend of Zelda games that has ever been made.

5 / 10.0 - No Man's Sky
Aug 14, 2016

No Man's Sky has a framework that could have led to an impressive game. Instead, the core parts of "gameplay" seem to be limited in the name of calling it a "chill game". It's boring, uninspired, repetitive and simply unfun.

All in all, if you are looking for a good JRPG and a reason to use your 3DS that isn’t called Monster Hunter or Pokémon, this is it. The name may be a bit of a turn-off to people casually browsing the 3DS library, but this game delivers in a way that I never expected it would.

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir takes a game that deserved a lot more praise than it initially received and makes it the game that it always had the potential to be.

8 / 10.0 - The Banner Saga 2
May 18, 2016

Overall, The Banner Saga 2's story is simply fantastic and is filled with beautiful animation. This game needs to be seen and heard.

If you didn’t get to play Valkyria Chronicles when the game released back in the PS3 days, picking this up is a decent investment for $29.99. It’s not a game for everyone, however, and watching most of it online on Twitch or Youtube will ruin a lot of the overall experience. I really did like the game, though, and I am pretty sure that if you are looking for a great RPG experience on the cheap, this is the one for you.

8.5 / 10.0 - Dark Souls III
Apr 29, 2016

Dark Souls 3 is a great game, but it's a game that takes a few steps back to be accommodating for players that are still not acclimated to the series.

8.6 / 10.0 - Dying Light
Mar 10, 2016

To sum it up, the "Enhanced Edition" content lets you add some filters, improves some animations and makes the zombies more dangerous. This is all before adding in some devastating new weaponry.

9.2 / 10.0 - Fallout 4
Dec 15, 2015

I'd be lying if I said that there wasn't anything left for me to do within the game, and I'm sure that statement will stand for quite awhile as well. A good game and an even better experience.

8.2 / 10.0 - Guitar Hero Live
Dec 9, 2015

If you were looking for some sort of evolution to the music game genre, surprisingly Activision hit the nail square on the head. Not only is Guitar Hero Live a fun product to play, but it is also an enjoyable game to watch with its live performances and music videos. Rock Band 4 was hesitant to change, while I can't wait to see the future of Guitar Hero now!

Minecraft Story Mode really appears to be something marketed to younger players that love Minecraft, as there are things like conventions and little jokes for anyone that has sat in front of a crafting table before. I found the first episode amusing, but my son saw it as one of his favorite games given a new breath of life with a real story and characters within the world itself.

7 / 10.0 - I Am Bread
Nov 3, 2015

That's the thing with I am Bread. It's a game for video game masochists. It's fun in small 15 minute spurts, which it can mostly be played in, but really feels to captivate for any sort of time after that. Fortunately, that brief amount of time can be spent playing with the baguette and smashing your problems away.

6.8 / 10.0 - Rock Band 4
Oct 27, 2015

Rock Band 4 seems like it was rushed to get out to the public. They had an opportunity to make a triumphant return with awesome music but opted to have you turn around and purchase all the "great DLC" that they made available the day the game came out. Thanks, but no thanks, Harmonix.

10 / 10.0 - Undertale
Oct 1, 2015

With masterful story writing, epic music, awesome gameplay and enjoyable puzzles, you organically move through the game until you reach the finale you earned. Undertale looks cheap and simple at a cursory glance but in the end turns out to be one of the most detailed games I've played in my entire life.

I could sit here and gush about how fun it is to search for all the little secrets and how big the maps actually are. I could explain that the game really opens up as you become more experienced and using new tips and tricks will make things happen much faster. This review could easily be 3000 words long and I'd still have things to say about this game, like the gratuitous customization options available .

8.8 / 10.0 - Rare Replay
Aug 12, 2015

Rare Replay sets the stage for what should be expected from a retro game collection and I absolutely see myself playing this game until I amass that 10,000 Gamerscore that can be earned.
