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.

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

Oct 2, 2018

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