As a fan of the previous Dead Rising games that released before Dead Rising 4, I hope this is it for the series. Dead Rising 4 and this DLC has done the damage, and it's sad to see a once great series turn to everything Dead Rising isn't along with ripping off the loyal fans of the series with DLC like this. To all other developers and publishers, in future, please don't make your true ending's a paid DLC. This might be the worst DLC I've ever played.
I'm struggling to find many faults with Yooka-Laylee. Okay, it's held back by some minor technical issues but other than those minor issues, this game was an absolute blast to play. If you're looking for a chilled out, over-the-top, and at time hilarious video game that is also fun to play then Yooka-Laylee deserves your attention. This gets an absolute recommendation from me, and a must buy at launch.
Just Dance 2017 is another good but flawed party game to add to the Nintendo Switch line up, if you're looking for a game that will offer hours of stupid fun then this is the perfect game to purchase for the Switch, and also take it on the go and play just using the undocked screen. If you're looking for that kind of party game fun then this will be perfect for you, and is worth the purchase.
LEGO Worlds is another fun entry to the series, sure it's not the Minecraft killer but it's a great attempt at a LEGO style sandbox creator. If you're a fan of the Minecraft and LEGO games then this has to be on your must buy list but be warned their are technical issues that hold this game back from its full potential.
Zelda: Breath Of The Wild is far from the perfect game, but it's still a very good game that is worth your money. If you're a fan of prior Zelda games however you might need to wary of Breath Of The Wild as it's changed and added a lot of features that some may feel move away from what made Zelda the franchise it is. Sometimes change is good, but I felt there was too many unnecessary changes in the game which made the game not feel like a Zelda game.
Resident Evil 7 is a much better game, and much better Resident Evil game compared to Resident Evil 6 but it’s not this generations Resident Evil 4, actually it’s quite far from it. It’s also far from being a bad game, actually it’s a pretty good game that’s worth purchasing but the issues keeps it from reaching it’s full potential.
Final Fantasy XV wasn't a bad game, but after all that hype, and being a first time player, I was disappointed with what was offered. There's many features about the game that I can praise like the combat and dialogue, but there's those negatives that makes it a disappointing first experience. I feel this is going to be a game with very mixed opinions, and I'm sure there's many playing it early who think it's a great game, but for me personally, this was a good yet disappointing game.
Watch Dogs 2 is better than the original Watch Dogs, I want to make that clear first as many people are probably wondering that. I enjoyed the story, the characters, and the location which is something I did not like in the first Watch Dogs game so everything better in Watch Dogs 2 after was all a bonus. Lets not sugarcoat it though, . It’s not what Assassin’s Creed II was to Assassin’s Creed, but it’s an improvement. Watch Dogs 2 still has it’s technical issues, A.I issues, and at times repetitive mission that brings the overall score down, but overall Watch Dogs 2 is definitely worth your time and trust that Watch Dogs might have killed.
Dishonored 2 is a fantastic entry to the series, and made me an even bigger fan of the extremely talented Arkane Studios who developed both games in this amazing series. If you were a fan of Dishonored, then you are going to be a big fan of Dishonored 2 as well.
Collectively, (if you pardon the pun) the BioShock Collection offers a TON of single-player content. Seriously, if you’re the gamer who prefers single-player to multiplayer then this collection has a massive amount of content on offer. Not only do you get the hugely praised single-player of all three base games, you will also get all the additional single-player content that all three games offer.
Even if you recently watched Stranger Things, you might notice a few similarities with Virginia in the subtle and sometimes explicit otherworldly allusions to the masked reality that we cannot actively perceive. This whole feeling that something could be hiding around the corner definitely adds to the suspense that runs throughout most of the game. One might get a fourth-wall-breaking sense that the developers are slowly peeling back the mystery and everything that unravels is for you to behold and try your damndest to make sense of it all.
It’s a great game and even better, an excellent puzzle game. However, puzzles aren’t the be all and end all; the narrative is enthralling, mysterious and intriguing – any sci-fi lovers out there will find a good story here. There’s some seriously thought-provoking dialogue and moments in the game that I hope you take the time to experience The Turing Test for yourself – it shouldn’t be missed!
Overall, F1 2016 is a definite improvement over last year’s entry. It was Codemasters’ first F1 game on current-gen consoles and it was lacking some key features but F1 2016 makes a triumphant return to form with impressive visuals and boasting a fully-fledged campaign mode that is as multi-faceted as it is captivating. You get a lot of content with F1 2016 and any racing enthusiast should strongly consider picking this one up.
Overall, Telltale’s Batman Episode 1 is one of the best and most complete experiences to be found in one episode of a Telltale game. The episode is directed expertly and pacing is very well executed; you’ll have time to experience all of the multi-faceted lives of Bruce Wayne but you’re also introduced to a wide array of classic characters without feeling overwhelmed. You get the eery sense that something is brewing in Gotham City and I can’t wait to find out what it is in the episodes to come.
Overall, Carmageddon Max Damage definitely has unique appeal. I can’t say I’ve ever really played another game like it. It’s mercilessly violent but not for any malicious reasons; this is crude humour at its height in the video game space. The physics provide for some truly fun moments and you’ll find yourself reaching for that “record clip” button more than once. The game isn’t anything special in terms of graphical fidelity but the clean presentation is more than welcome. The game’s formula feels a bit dated but can still be great fun when played in short playtimes
I won't be going into spoiler territory but it's clear that the best thing Mirror's Edge Catalyst has going for it is the core gameplay mechanics. When they work (which in all fairness is the majority of the time) then the parkour style of movement is a ton of fun and makes you feel like a badass.
Overwatch is unlike anything else on the Xbox One and PS4. Yes, Battleborn exists and I've enjoyed that game for what it is and even reviewed it positively (you can read that here) But it'd be incredulous to not admit that Overwatch just brings something 'special' to the genre that makes it stand out from other shooters of a similar nature. Personally, I'd even go as far as calling it the most enjoyable multiplayer shooter on console to date. That's not to say that other multiplayer shooters have been bad; they certainly haven't but the Pixar-grade visuals mixed with everything else that makes Overwatch so great just puts it above the fray compared to other shooters. If you're looking to get some genuine fun out of a multiplayer game then you can't go wrong with Overwatch.
