Jordan Ryan's Reviews

Lifelong enthusiast of all things gaming, film, television, and music. If it's pop culture, I'm probably at least passively interested in it. I write video game and tech reviews for GBAtemp.net.

9 / 10.0 - Kill it With Fire
Aug 27, 2020

At the end of the day, Kill It with Fire knows exactly what it wants to be, and succeeds at it in the best way. It's an arachnophobic power fantasy that's just pure, unfiltered fun the whole way through, even if the ride isn't as long as I'd like it to be.

Paper Mario: The Origami King might seem like a mixed bag on the surface, but in my mind the good outweighs the bad. The music, while forgettable, is still functional. The combat, while annoying, is far from the worst thing I've played. And the just pure enjoyment I got from exploring and experiencing the world is enough for me to still give the game a hearty recommendation.

SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE truly does live up to its own promise of MORE. The additions to gameplay take the already winning formula and expand upon it, without taking away from what made the first two entries so memorable. It’s some of the most fun I’ve had playing a game, and it’s a game that will definitely have me coming back for MORE.

8 / 10.0 - Spacejacked
Jun 28, 2020

All told, Spacejacked is a really fun game that comes in a really neat package. The gameplay is fluid, quick, and engaging while the graphics and sound, while not perfect, are charming. This is a game that I can easily recommend to anyone who enjoys arcade-style games, tower defense, and action shooters.

6.5 / 10.0 - Blair Witch
Jun 25, 2020

Blair Witch is a bit of a mixed bag. The graphics, sound design, and unique gameplay elements are all really cool, but the lack of a solid story and never truly taking advantage of being a horror property hold it back. Fans of the film franchise will no doubt find something to like here, but it’s not the interactive horror experience it could’ve been.

7.5 / 10.0 - Kingdom Two Crowns
May 12, 2020

Dead Lands does a great job combining these two franchises. At the core, this is still Kingdom Two Crowns, but the additions improve upon the base game and bring an update that both Kingdom and Bloodstained fans can be happy with.

7.5 / 10.0 - Grimvalor
Apr 22, 2020

Grimvalor might not be the prettiest or most complicated game on the Switch, but the fun factor is hard to argue with. It's a pretty standard, simple hack and slash platformer, but it knows exactly what it is, and does it well. It's not the most challenging game in the world, but it's enjoyable from start to finish.

Shinsekai: Into the Depths is a beautiful game of exploration and discovery. The standout mobile game is right at home on the Nintendo Switch, and I can’t recommend it enough to anyone looking for their next adventure.

Coteries of New York is definitely a game made to be experienced in the context of a connected universe. As an introduction to that universe, it works. As a game on its own, it's just okay. Fans of the franchise will likely love it, and those who are interested in trying the franchise will find plenty to enjoy. But it's hard to recommend this as a game for everyone to jump on.

Operencia: The Stolen Sun is very clearly a love letter. Not just to RPGs and dungeon crawlers, but to fantasy and mythology as a whole. There’s a lot to like, and while there’s gripes to be had, it’s still very fun. If you’re a fan of the old-school dungeon crawlers, I’d definitely recommend it.
