Nathaniel Smyth's Reviews

Born and raised in Plymouth, NH, Nat has been gaming since he was 3 starting on his brother’s Sega Genesis, all the way up to the Xbox One. Well rounded in a range of game genres from beat-em-ups to shooters, to role-playing-games, and more, he’s had a passion for all things gaming as long as he’s been able to hold a controller. While busy with school, sports, working, he still finds time to sit down, play, read up on the latest news, and hunt for deals on new and classic games.

7.7 / 10.0 - Call of Cthulhu
Nov 1, 2018

"A great psychological horror game with a few setbacks that keep it from being truly amazing. Fans of Cthulhu mythos will probably get an extra kick out of it."

"Black Ops 4 is worth giving a damn about, every mode is, at worst, solid, and at best, simply an amazing experience."

A decent game that could be great if they ironed out the bugs and added a couple extra modes to keep things fresh longer.

"Mulaka starts off promising but quickly plateaus for about five hours and then just kinda ends."

41 / 100 - Dynasty Warriors 9
Feb 19, 2018

This is just a terrible entry in the long-running series and deserves to be completely forgotten. Boring, riddled with bugs, and lazily made, it makes me miss the older games.

"This Redux was really just one of the least-needed things of the year, or decade even. The updated graphics are hardly an update, and the dated, clunky gameplay is just not fun to experience anymore."

6.1 / 10.0 - The Evil Within 2
Oct 20, 2017

"The Evil Within 2 is a pretty average horror game. It's just fine, it's not offensively bad, it's not earth-shatteringly original. It's just serviceable, though the dialogue and writing leaves a lot to be desired."

If Christian Whitehead just keeps making new Sonic levels, and SEGA lets him head more games, then the future of Sonic will be bright. Hats off to you, Mr. Whitehead.

9 / 10.0 - Observer

"Observer is my favorite horror game of 2017 so far. It’s enthralling, disturbing, and makes you want to explore every corner of the building and scan every little thing."

Well, we did a Dark Souls thing, so let's do an Infinity Blade thing, I guess.

"MMPR Mega Battle is a quick, little gift to fans of the series, but it falls short in a handful of ways that will most likely disappoint fans."

70 / 100 - Dead Rising 4
Dec 6, 2016

Dead Rising 4 is a good game. It's not great, and it's not bad—it's just good. Killing zombies is fun, the story isn't bad, and Frank is fun to play as with his sense of humor and "smart-ass but slightly aging journalist" schtick. It's just a bit too easy to really suck you into the gameplay, and the multiplayer is forgettable at best. You'll either love it for Frank's character and killing zombies with new toys, or you'll hate it for getting rid of your favorite features. Either way, it's an important entry in the series for Capcom Vancouver to learn what works and what doesn't.
