Jonathan White's Reviews

IT guy by day, game critic by night. Fueled by anger and electronic dance music.

Creature in the Well is an interesting take on a familiar set of genres, but it's ultimately unsure of itself and the gimmicks wear off very quickly.

7.6 / 10.0 - Control
Aug 26, 2019

Ultimately, Control is a really cool experience even with all of the flaws.

Tales of Vesperia still holds up pretty well even in 2019, despite having some annoyances that we’ve now become accustomed to not having to deal with. The fixed camera when in certain areas can make finding semi-hidden items a chore or damn near impossible depending on where it’s at. We’re too used to a freely rotating camera and it feels very dated not having that as an option.

6.5 / 10.0 - Darksiders III
Nov 30, 2018

It's truly a shame because the parts where the storytelling really shines in this game are the parts most people won't ever see because of the technical issues that plague it.

I recommend Castlevania Requiem if for no other reason than to play Symphony of the Night so you can understand how the Metroidvania genre truly came to light.

All and all, this is a terrific port and Diablo herself couldn't have asked for a better welcome to Nintendo's hardware. Even if you've played this game to death, don't underestimate how great it feels to senselessly destroy hordes of evil on the go.

8 / 10.0 - SoulCalibur VI
Oct 23, 2018

For now, Soul Calibur VI is definitely steps in the right direction of reminding people why Bandai Namco has the best fighters not named Street Fighter, and I’m excited to see who else joins the fray in the series’ future.

8.5 / 10.0 - Yakuza Kiwami 2
Aug 30, 2018

Overall, Kiwami 2 is yet another stellar Yakuza re-release. This time it runs in Yakuza 6's dragon engine and it's absolutely gorgeous to look at.

9.5 / 10.0 - Dead Cells

One part rogue-like, one part Metroidvania. Mix in some speed running and you’ve got yourself a tremendous baby of a game.

7 / 10.0 - Far Cry 5
Jul 31, 2018

Despite having a terrific antagonist, Far Cry 5 seems to struggle to connect the player to the story.
