Jay Ball's Reviews

It takes a special type of game to blow me away. A combination of good handling and quality visuals isn't nearly enough. I'm moved by well crafted narratives and characters that the player can connect with. I need to be left thinking about a game long after I'm done with it. Play the Last of Us or Spec Ops: The Line to understand what I mean.

8 / 10.0 - Far Cry: New Dawn
Feb 14, 2019

Despite changes to the formula, New Dawn is still very much Far Cry at its core.

Due to its niche nature, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown won’t be for everyone. You’d really need to love this style of game to get the full benefit of it. That being said, it’s a well crafted addition to the genre and may very well make some some new fans of aviation titles that were otherwise not interested

Combat against all the bosses is both challenging and rewarding. There's great variation between all enemies in their look, how they fight and how you need to behave with each

Mega Man 11 is as challenging, fun and frustrating as every other game in the series in literally every single aspect.

Danger Zone 2 isn't quite as much fun as I remember Burnout being.

1.5 / 10.0 - Bravo Team
Mar 6, 2018

It's poorly made and is, hands down, the worst game I've ever played. The fact that the end credits didn't include a personal apology because you simply made it to 'em is astonishing.

The best in the series, by far.

Only drop coin on this if you're a huge fan of the genre

4.5 / 10.0 - Steep
Dec 5, 2016

Featuring systems that focus on community engagement and competition among friends, there are some clever new ideas that haven’t been seen in games before. Still, Steep falls short where it matters most, offering you more moments of anger than adrenaline. If you have plenty of patience then this might be the game for you, though most will end up pissed off rather than going off-piste.
