Battlechasers: Nightwar is a fun rpg that benefits from the mythos that the original comics created. The characters are enjoyable, the world is teeming with personality, and the combat is both challenging and rewarding. There’s enough content here to keep most rpg fans happy, especially if they plan to complete the dungeons on the hardest difficulty level. Newcomers to the franchise will have no trouble getting into this one.
Locomalito has once again created an unforgettable experience that stands head and shoulders above the competition. With incredible level design, perfect controls, and an astounding attention to detail, it’s not ridiculous to call this the greatest shmup ever made. One man has set the standard for a genre through passion and a deep understanding for what makes games enjoyable.
It's a shame that Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped is such a dreadful experience because the first two games in this collection are absolute gold. Vicarious Visions has succeeded in making Crash look completely contemporary, however, the level design and structure has remained unchanged. This is the best way to introduce new gamers to the orange marsupial, however, it's his existing fans that will enjoy it the most.
While it certainly has its fair share of flaws, ARMS absolutely nails the fun-factor. It's a simple game that offers so much depth for players willing to put in the work, and while the content is fairly limited, there is enough for both casual and hardcore audiences.
Even with its flaws, World to the West is a fun adventure game that has plenty of clever moments. The characters are enjoyable all the way through, the environments are a joy to look at, and the puzzles are a blast to solve. Each of the main characters' unique abilities are used to their fullest potential as well, meaning that there is enjoyment to be had with each one. It’s just a shame that the combat is only fun with one of them. Fans of classic Zelda titles will not be disappointed, however, as this world is certainly worth exploring.
