Derivative or not, and perhaps aside from the combat, every aspect of Journey to the Savage Planet is high-quality.
Though it’s simple on the surface, it’s altogether plain old fun!
Some of the execution has more room for improvement than you’d expect from a sequel, but overall it provides a unique, fun, and satisfying gameplay experience.
A small number of flaws barely make a dent; this is the quintessential Monster Hunter experience.
Ultimately, Super Lucky’s Tale is too conservative to be much more than good, especially when combined with some of its more questionable design choices.
It’s no sprawling epic but, much like the 1999 feature length film of South Park, The Fractured But Whole is ultimately South Park bigger, longer & uncut.
The more time I have put into the game, the less satisfied I’ve felt, not because it's bad in any one way, but because Bunge has again failed to deliver a fulfilling and lasting experience.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is like a good book that you don’t want to put down, nor do you want it to end. The litany of complaints and problems are little typos or creases in the pages. You’d be hard pressed to miss them, but you gladly look past them to continue the stellar experience.
While both the content and overall experience may not be perfect, collectively they compose a bold, engrossing, brilliant blockbuster of a game that should absolutely be experienced.
The biggest drawback is the lack of any major new additions, aside from the upgraded graphics. The other changes are fine, but in comparing this package to some other remakes and remasters, it feels a little bit wanting.
Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India starts off making you feel like an elite assassin, able to tackle scenarios and obstacles as you see fit, but increasingly you begin to feel like a dog being berated into learning how to go through an obstacle course, or even just a rat in a maze.
While some will decry the lack of single player content, the end result is an exceptional and distinct multiplayer experience.
Fallout 4 easily prevails over its technical issues and subjective design flaws. It's a never-ending stream of superb experiences that keeps you engaged and coming back for more.
