5 / 10.0 - Crimson Keep
Jun 8, 2019

Crimson Keep is a decent enough title that you'll get some entertainment out of it, however, the story is barebones, the gameplay at its core is bland and basic, and progressing throughout feels like it's done at a crawl. On the positive side though, the design and overall look of the game are definitely noteworthy, being two aspects that help make this title more appealing from a visual perspective. Long story short, it's up to you in this case, I personally would save my money for something else.

4.5 / 10.0 - Dead or Alive 6
May 19, 2019

So, with all of that taken into account, is Dead or Alive 6 worth picking up? No. Unless you really (and I mean really) need to know what happens in the next installment of the franchise. Yes, credit where credit is due with the gameplay, roster, and visuals, but everything about the game just has this air of 'lacking' around it. The soundtrack could have done a lot more, most of the design was just plain bad, the story felt thrown together at the last minute, and the length of the campaign just doesn't justify the £54 price tag attached to the game.

There's enough on display here that, if you were a big fan of Kirby's Epic Yarn, you could get at least get a couple more hours of entertainment out of it. However, assuming you're not a big fan, than I would suggest waiting for something with a bit more substance to come out, which should be around Metroid Prime 4's release.

Unless you're a huge, huge fan of the series, then I wouldn't go all out on this one, as the developers certainly didn't.

9 / 10.0 - Resident Evil 2
Mar 14, 2019

Resident Evil 2 is a wonderful recreation of a believed original that, not only recaptures the glory of that game, but also improves upon it from a visual and gameplay standpoint. All in all, don't miss out on this one.

6.5 / 10.0 - Riot: Civil Unrest
Mar 13, 2019

Riot: Civil Unrest has the look and feel a good RTS with entertaining yet challenging gameplay sections, but it all feels a bit weird when considering a) these sections are based on real events, and b) that the gameplay is fun and entertaining, but really only when you play as the protesters.

7.5 / 10.0 - Warriors Orochi 4
Feb 20, 2019

If you can look past the little annoyances like grinding and the frame rate, then Warrior Orochi 4, coupled with fun gameplay and pretty looking environments, makes for a rather welcome instalment into the franchise.

6.5 / 10.0 - Earth Defense Force 5
Jan 30, 2019

If you like watching B-movie's with friends, but would rather play them instead, then yes, Earth Defense Force 5 is the game for you. If you just want to blow shit up, then there are more entertaining games out there.

8 / 10.0 - Battlefield V
Dec 11, 2018

Despite the obvious cash-grab ‘Firestorm' mode and the inevitable day one glitches that'll need to be patched out, Battlefield V does a wonderful job at making a game players won't soon forget (at least until the next one comes out). With interesting modes like ‘Grand Operations', ‘Frontlines', and the always classic ‘Conquest', coupled with the heartfelt campaign's the game as to offer, Battlefield V is definitely worth checking out.

3 / 10.0 - ADIOS Amigos
Dec 1, 2018

Is ADIOS Amigo worth your time? No, not really. If you like atmospheric games then maybe, but I doubt that you're just going to want to fly around in a game after spending 15 dollars on it. There's a co-op option, so maybe there's some humorous drunk playthroughs waiting there.

Overcooked! 2: Surf N' Turf is an expansion that does a solid job in most areas. That being said, don't expect the same level of effort in terms of story or cooperative gameplay, as the end result may leave you wanting something more.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is entertaining enough to be worth the price of admission, but it's an action-adventure title that follows the same beats as any action-adventure title. While the story may be new, the characters, the set-pieces, and the dramatic ending, are all things we've seen before.

8 / 10.0 - Overcooked 2
Sep 23, 2018

Is Overcooked 2! worth the purchase? I would say it is, for sure. The story and writing may be a bit over-the-top and punny for my liking, but there are certainly people out there that will have some fun with it. So whether you're a cook for the ages or a master of the macaroni and cheese, Overcooked 2! is certainly worth picking up.

4 / 10.0 - Castaway Paradise
Sep 21, 2018

Castaway Paradise is a title that tries to live up to other genre defining hits like Blue Harvest and Animal Crossing, but merely comes across as a cheap knock-off of the two. A life simulator that doesn't look very lively, your money is better spent else where.

8 / 10.0 - The Long Reach
Aug 12, 2018

A deeply layered story with the scares to match, The Long Reach brings back the basics of psychological-horror by keeping players both intrigued and nervous until the very end.

4.5 / 10.0 - Rainbow Skies
Jul 31, 2018

Done before and done better, Rainbow Skies is a game that has taken a fairly bland concept to begin with and proceeded to not change a thing about it. If you're looking for an epic tale of heroes and rogues, you'd be better off looking elsewhere.

Super Mega Baseball 2 brings out the best in what baseball games have to offer. An over-the-top, fun sports title that focuses on entertaining rather than realism, this is one is definitely worth checking out.

Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn manages to do things at such a basic level that it numbs us to the idea of anything entertaining happening ever. A product from the past that lacks in every department, one has to wonder why they even bothered?

5 / 10.0 - Vampyr
Jun 23, 2018

Vampyr is a game that's mainly focused on telling a good story and developing its characters, which it does respectably. That being said, things such as combat, mission variety, and even hardware, end up getting put to the wayside. All in all, it's a rather bleak experience.
