The Division 2 is a vast improvement over its predecessor straight from launch. With improvements in every area of design, whether you're playing solo, with friends there is a wealth of content to keep you occupied. Right now, it's definitely worth the asking price and will certainly keep you coming back, but even if you wait there will be even more content to play in the coming years.
There is a revolution happening in Battlefield 1 and it's not just with the arrival the latest expansion pack. With reworked mechanics, more progression and rewards; It's clear that DICE is implementing fundamental changes for the series. Unfortunately, even though the tides are turning, as of right now they are held back by the obligations of the available season pass.
Get Even is a memorable experience and a well-delivered psychological thriller. Music and audio design stand as its high point, alongside the visuals and gameplay creating an immersive atmosphere. It truly is The Farm 51's best title to date, and Bandai Namco was right to give them the extra time needed to complete it.
Deceit is a game of deception and co-operation. A concept excellent on paper. In practice though, it does fall flat on itself. It has a problematic community which can be tough on new players. If Deceit allowed friends to play together it could make for a great party game. Unfortunately, this is not the vision of the developers. They'd rather see strangers forced to work together in dire situations.
The Crow's Eye is excellent platform puzzler with an intriguing story. I can't consider it being an actual horror title, especially as a psychological terror that the developers, 3D2 Entertainment describes, but as an atmospheric first-person adventure, it has a lot going for it. It can be easily recommended for fans of puzzle-adventure titles shrouded in mystery.
As a whole package, all the praise should be going toward the single player experience, and I'd never thought I'd say that about a Call of Duty game in a long time. But in all honestly, it’s true. As for the multiplayer, it makes for an incredibly mundane and subpar experience that almost parodies itself. Completely making it very difficult to recommend the game as a whole.
Redie is a challenging title. Frustration inducing but by the end becomes rewarding. It certainly catered towards fans of Hotline Miami, it why it caught my attention, but the game itself feels fresh and enjoyable. It isn’t a straight up clone, neither is it an homage, but another action-packed stylish top-down shooter with the same concept.
Dishonored 2 is a substantial improvement over its predecessor and is an expertly crafted continuation from the first. With a plethora of choices and wonderful architectural puzzle design, Dishonored 2 is truly an immersive experience. It's just a shame it's held back by terrible and unfortunate PC performance.
After having a blast with the campaign, The Coalition have taken the helms of the Gears of Wars franchise and have made it their own. There was little to dislike about the experience and the team have more than proved that a returning franchise can still be epic.
WASTED: A Post Apocalyptic Pub Crawler isn’t a game I would recommend to everyone, it’s heavy on the roguelike design and this would put off many, even if you are a massive FPS fan. The frustrating side of a roguelike is that death can come from any corner. What makes WASTED worthwhile is the visual style, gameplay, and humour. It makes for an excellent time waster, and at £9.99 it isn’t badly priced either.
What we have here is the definition of cash-grabbing and at £40 you’ll be as braindead as the ghouls ingame to buy. The release is obscenely catered towards parents or grandparents who would buy this for their child/grandchild because, it’s all the kids are talking about these days.
Dangerous Golf combines the classic Burnout Crash mode as a nostalgia driven, explosive golf party game. Visually it’s very impressive, but the overall experience borders on glorified tech demo. As it stands, at £14.99 I can’t recommended it for that price, but at a discount it’s certainly worth checking out; especially if you are wanting to scratch that destructive itch.
As much as the title is memorable and is certainly a bit of a giggle, beyond this we get another forgetful short lived game. Visually terrible and on-par with the likes of a mobile game, Super Duper Party Pooper is another fun for a few minutes time-waster that’s eventually flushed away among your other forgotten steam games. Fortunately if you do decided a play, it’ll only set you back 79p.
Guns, gore and demons. The classic DOOM is back and it's better than ever. With a glorious and immensely satisfying single player experience, DOOM is one of the best shooters of year. Shame it can't be said about the multiplayer, but at least with the addition of intuitive SnapMap you can create your very own Hell.
The Following expansion pack is a fantastic, enjoyable addition to an already great game, you'll bound not to find a dull moment within. By the end you'll be wanting to do nothing more than get behind the wheel and creating chaos as you speed across the dirt roads, taking down zombies in a field of blood splattering glory.
