Stan Rezaee's Reviews
Trinity Trigger wants to recreate the experience of a PlayStation era JRPG’s while incorporating the lessons learned from the last 30 years.
Crime Boss: Rockay City is a reminder of a bygone era when every game studio attempted to ride the coattails of Vice City. It takes everything one loves about crime films and games to present a fun experience.
Resident Evil 4 builds upon the already successful foundation of its predecessors to reimagine one of the most iconic games. This is a remake that has recreated the original while also respecting its charm and defining elements. Overall, it will leave fans mesmerized while also coming back for more.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure continues the story of its predecessor while also polishing the gameplay. From its familiar gameplay to its retro style visuals, it has everything one could ask for in a JRPG.
Disgaea 6 Complete takes players on another off-beat quest into the Netherworld with all the shenanigans one could expect from the series. From its upbeat take on the afterlife to a gallery of colorful characters, this is truly a worthy entry in the most evilest JRPG series.
Dread X Collection 5 is another promising entry in the indie horror anthology series that has its share of memorable nightmares. It has a good number of unforgettable titles while also having a few duds in the collection.
Kaiju Wars is one big love letter to the kaiju genre as it knows what defined it and what makes it so iconic. At the same time, it attempts to broaden the player’s horizon by encouraging them to look beyond Godzilla and works like Evangelion.
Deadly Dozen Reloaded is an old-school tactical World War II game that is polished in all the right ways. Visually and performance-wise, it’s a solid remake while having its fair share of issues.
The House of the Dead: Remake is a reunion for old-school gamers while introducing a new generation to the arcade classic. If you grew up playing the arcade version, you will absolutely enjoy the PC version of the remake. If you enjoy horror survivals then you give this classic a playthrough (especially with a friend).
Despite its performance issues, Postal 4: No Regerts functions better on Day 1 than Cyberpunk 2077 did five months after launch.
Hitman III brings The World of Assassination trilogy to a close with an unforgettable bang. The third game in the reboot brings it all together while perfecting the experience. Regardless of when one was introduced to the series, this is a game that has lived up to expectations.
Monark is a JRPG that understands its audience all too well while also standing out in its own right. It has the right balance of being a familiar experience while also keeping you invested in the journey.
Kingdom of the Dead will get your attention with its pen and ink style visuals while keeping you hooked with its retro-FPS inspired gameplay. Old school gamers will enjoy it for that retro-inspired gameplay and setting. Fans of shooters will enjoy it for being a modern take on a classic setup.
Shadow Man: Remastered is a more polished version of a cult classic that is a treat for fans of the original and retro titles. The PlayStation 4 version is also redemption for the shortcomings of the PS1 version. Overall; it’s a reminder of the many underlooked titles that help define that era of video games.
The Caligula Effect 2 better polishes many of the series-defining aspects while also keeping the classic JRPG elements. The world is more detailed and colorful while that upbeat soundtrack is still present. It’s still a cliché anime-inspired JRPG experience in all the right ways.
Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Operation Code Fairy expands on the lore by allowing players to experience the One Year War from the perspective of Zeon. Gundam fans will not be disappointed by an experience that uses Battle Operation 2 as the foundation for the gameplay and with an original story.
BloodRayne: ReVamped is a polished classic that is also a reminder of how so many titles that defined an era have become lost to time. Sometimes one yearns for a simpler time when blockbuster AAA games and indie darlings were not the only options while there were plenty of over-the-top titles in-between.
This Land Is My Land presents a unique take on the Western genre by putting players in the role of an Indigenous American fighting to preserve their way of life. It hits all the right marks in regards to the gameplay and story but falls short in regards to quality due to a lack of polish.
Corpse Party remaster is an experience worth playing for those who are new to the series or fans of the beloved classic.
Far Cry 6 utilizes everything learned in the series long and evolving history to present an unforgettable experience.
