Games of Thrones Episode 2 is a rather slow burn type of Episode which takes it sweet time in establishing the new characters, as well continuing the story of the returning characters. Unfortunately it doesn't really stand as anything special in term of the story, making it a weak follow-up from Episode 1.
Nickelodeon Kart Racers is a game trying hard to stay stuck in the past. It is merely using the Nickelodeon name as a promotional tool, offering a shallow karting game underneath it. The lack of licensed characters, terrible tracks, and average gameplay doesn't help it stand out among the countless other Kart Racing clones.
As a game developed for kids first, the presentation is simple with a repetitive gameplay loop which doesn't offer any challenge. Kids will appreciate it for the first few levels, but even they can experience the boredom once the initial excitement is over.
Wolfenstein Youngblood suffers from a myriad of issues including bad game design, unnecessary gameplay clutter, and a forced shift to co-op gameplay that hardly feels ideal. It is a disappointing entry in the classic Wolfenstein series that has delivered some of the best first-person narrative-focused shooters this generation.
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.
Black Clover: Quartet Knight features a disappointing main story campaign that is also incredibly short. The focus on multiplayer just doesn't work properly due to its terrible execution and long matchmaking times. It is a game that is purely for fans of the anime and not for others.
The lack of a functional story mode and some technical issues with the frame rate bring down an otherwise serviceable fighting game. This is not providing a substitute to King of Fighters, but it is an average fighter for those who are seeking something casual with plenty of fan service moments.
As a Pikmin clone, this is a sub-par experience at best with frustrating and poorly implemented controls for ordering your Impa followers. It can still be a fun game if you can overcome the constant struggles with the controls, otherwise, it is largely a forgettable experience
Despite its best intention to create an interactive story adventure, The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia can be incredibly repetitive with its missions. There is a lot of flashy combat but the performance in battle is highly disappointing and the camera can be difficult to follow making it tricky to land combos.
Trials of the Blood Dragon is a great idea on paper but its execution here leaves a lot to be desired. As a successor to Blood Dragon, it ultimately has a lot of expectations from the fans but while it delivers on the aesthetics and style of Blood Dragon, it falls short in gameplay.
Despite carrying an interesting premise, especially for its story, We Happy Few falters due to the lack of overall polish. It suffers from terrible performance and clunky combat controls while the focus on putting as many survival mechanics in a single-player story ends up making it look like a product that lost its identity.
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.
An ambitious attempt to create a multiplayer focused ninja game in the Naruto universe. The foundation created here is solid but the content offered is just not good enough to attract the fans who have played the classic Naruto games with their story-focused campaign.
Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters: Daybreak Special Gigs is a neat little update to the base game, but it doesn't really warrant its current price. At most, it could have worked well as an expansion to the base game, which unfortunately isn't the case here.
