Khurram Imtiaz's Reviews

I am an avid gamer that has an interest in RPGs. I prefer games that push the narrative in storytelling, something that was perfected by The Last of Us. I have been writing for over 3 years now for different outlets. I love to talk about video games and you will find my reviews going into detail about every aspect of the video game.

8 / 10.0 - Team Sonic Racing
May 30, 2019

Sumo Digital has delivered a solid Kart racing game based on the Sonic brand. They have succeeded in creating a sense of speed with the races, providing a good amount of content for replay value, and an entertaining track design encouraging you to explore every corner for secrets.

7.5 / 10.0 - Rage 2
May 28, 2019

RAGE 2 offers an incredibly stylish and pleasing combat system with a variety of weapons and skills, but the open world traversal and a disappointing story make it a less than stellar experience.

7 / 10.0 - World War Z
May 20, 2019

The concept of making a co-op focused third-person shooter based on the World War Z movie is exciting in theory, but the execution here is clearly flawed. Nevertheless, it is a solid shooter that works out mostly in its co-op mode with a group of friends.

A Plague Tale offers a compelling narrative that revolves around the emotional bond shared between a brother and sister. The excellence in storytelling overcomes its shortcoming in gameplay where stealth takes the main focus.

9 / 10.0 - Mortal Kombat 11
Apr 30, 2019

Mortal Kombat 11 feels like a highly polished fighting game with a great story campaign. There are certain issues with the game balance and economy that make it somewhat less appealing, but the developers so far have been quite vocal and open about resolving it, which is encouraging and shows a promising future. Given some time, this could be an easy contender for the best Mortal Kombat released so far.

Hob: The Definitive Edition is not going to blow you away with its design but it is a solid adventure game nonetheless. The Nintendo Switch version does end up making it the definitive edition due to some quality-of-life changes and minor improvements putting it on equal foot next to the console and PC version.

It is gut wrenching to reach the end of The Walking Dead knowing the fate of the series, but it ends on such a high note that it feels like a privilege to take part in this journey of Clementine from the beginning to its end.

Ace Attorney is the series that started it all, mixing traditional visual novels with a courtroom drama that offers new twists in the story keeping you in complete suspense. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy suffers from some minor blemishes like the new artwork or revamped controls, but it is still the best way to experience the trilogy on modern platforms.

Episode Ardyn is the best gift the development team could give to the fans. It is bittersweet and digs deeper into the history of Ardyn as he transforms from a savior of the people to a villain starting the end of the world leading to Final Fantasy XV.

From Software has done it again and created a masterpiece that is wildly different from any of their previous games but still similar enough that you will feel the same excitement and thrill after playing it.

Fans of the mystery dungeon genre who want to see how a light-hearted game featuring classic Final Fantasy characters would look like will have a great time with Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon EVERY BUDDY. The buddy system offers new co-op gameplay opportunities making it perfect for gamers of all age.

As flawed as the first The Division ended up being, it was still an enjoyable experience. The sequel doesn't take a revolutionary leap forward and rather just settles on improving every flaw, but sadly this comes with a downgrade in the scope of the story which is unfortunate.

It is about time we had a proper open world One Piece game but unfortunately, it is not without its faults. The open world feels barren, the combat is lackluster, stealth badly implemented and the mission design is repetitive. The game can still be plenty of fun especially the traversal, and it looks gorgeous in motion.

6 / 10.0 - Left Alive
Mar 11, 2019

Left Alive feels like a flawed game in every aspect of the game design, but it is also strangely fascinating. There is just something about it that keeps pulling you in, but the gameplay is definitely not it. The game falls victim to its grand ambition which is a shame since it shows potential amidst all of its flaws.

9 / 10.0 - Devil May Cry 5
Mar 5, 2019

This is the best Devil May Cry game since we met a young Vergil and Dante in Devil May Cry 3. While this sticks to its old-school game design and doesn't innovate much from it, the main attraction, which is its combat and iconic cast, is back in a highly polished package with jaw-dropping stylish action.

8 / 10.0 - Dead or Alive 6
Mar 4, 2019

While not trying to bring major changes to the table, this is a solid entry in Team Ninja's long-running Dead or Alive franchise. If you can ignore the obvious push to sell cosmetics and the expensive season pass, this has some fun fighting mechanics carrying a lot of depth.

8 / 10.0 - Trials Rising
Mar 3, 2019

Trials is not an easy series, and Trials Rising continues the trend of making you as frustrated as possible. It is annoying but also strangely satisfying if you conquer a tough track. The progression system is a little flawed but with the new multiplayer mode, this feels like a complete package.

6.5 / 10.0 - Crackdown 3
Feb 28, 2019

Crackdown 3 sticks to its roots and doesn't innovate much from it. The single-player story mode is fun and engaging despite some dated design but the multiplayer is perhaps the most disappointing aspect of Crackdown 3 that fails to deliver on the expectations set by earlier gameplay demonstrations.

7.5 / 10.0 - Far Cry: New Dawn
Feb 20, 2019

Purely as a spin-off to Far Cry 5, New Dawn does manage to offer a solid continuation of the story and already established gameplay mechanics. If we take it as a completely new game, it doesn't manage to leave that great of an impression.

Dragons: Dawn of New Riders mostly keeps it simple and fun with an easy to follow story and gameplay. It is not the most complex action game but makes uses its licensed property creatively. So instead of looking like forced tie-in, it feels more like a proper spin-off to the movie.
