I found this to be too slow for my liking, but if you want a slow-paced game with lots of idle chit-chat and an occasional battle, then this might be right up your street. The sedate pace and minimalist mechanics will probably divide critics, but this one found it dull and unengaging.
There are issues with odd choices or explanation of game mechanics, but overall this is a great sequel to a cult classic. If you like the original then it's highly likely you'll be able to overlook the slight foibles like I did and have a great time with Evil Genius 2.
With some quite tricky puzzles, Ever Forward is a rather challenging puzzler. The luscious graphics and lovely soundtrack definitely help the experience, but I'd have liked a bit more game. The pacing is a touch on the slow side too, so not one for the impatient.
Whilst these are great games, this isn’t a great collection. With almost no extras, very little tweaking of the games for the Switch and no Super Mario Galaxy 2 this just isn’t quite what I’d hoped for. I’m still enjoying the games, but for many people this won’t represent particularly great value. If you don’t already have the games then get it. If you do, you might want to give it some thought first.
Whilst Kill it With Fire is a short experience, there's still enough here to justify the budget asking price. It's the kind of game that you're unlikely to return to after having completed it, but you probably already expected that. It might not have the legs to be an epic saga, but if you want a few hours of silly enjoyment then you could do a lot worse than picking up this game.
