TJ Denzer's Reviews

At age 3, TJ Denzer ran away from his family on a vacation in Colorado. They found him at the local arcade, standing on a chair and playing SNK's World Heroes. Years later, TJ still has an obsessive passion for video games, from the technically sound to the absolutely artistic. When not digging into a game with his wife, he's hunting down good beer to enjoy with bad movies and friends.

2 / 10.0 - Umbrella Corps
Jun 27, 2016

The only thing Umbrella Corps succeeds in is convincing us Umbrella is the worst and most incompetent company anyone could ever have the misfortune of working for.

4 / 10 - Hyper Scape
Aug 14, 2020

genuinely enjoy when a game can innovate meaningfully in this evermore cramped space. Hyper Scape brings a lot of concepts to the table that, in theory, I thought were interesting, but the execution… this ain’t it.

It’s a game that feels like it should have had a big manual when it first launched, but without that manual, you only have half the picture, and so you’re stumbling around in the dark trying to make sense of everything.

There are bugs in the game that make it feel frustrating and unfinished. At many points I felt like I was fighting the game simply to play it, and while there's tons of promise, the current product just doesn't feel worth the effort it takes to play.

Majestic foundation quickly devolves into a human meat grinder, and not in a good way

6 / 10.0 - No Man's Sky
Aug 16, 2016

In many ways everything that led up to No Man’s Sky felt like some sort of conscription ad campaign. “See the universe! Explore the unknown!” It’s all very enticing and delivers on a lot of amazing feelings, but like most things of this nature, it’s not always all it’s cracked up to be.

6 / 10.0 - Into the Stars
Mar 21, 2016

Into the Stars is the type of game that will push you on those very grounds and once you’re in it, the journey is great the first few times.

6 / 10.0 - Sym
May 7, 2015

The world of Sym is very cool, but the flaws that don't belong really hurt the overall beauty of the game.

Resident Evil Resistance could be so much more with what it has on the surface, but what’s under the hood needs some thoughtful tweaking if Resistance is indeed a cause worth fighting for.

6 / 10 - Save Koch
Mar 9, 2020

As it is, I feel like I have to genuinely and methodically take notes of where each failure lies so as not to do it again, barring the fact that a mole and mastermind, or a grapple with a persnickety UI, won’t heck up my plans anyways. Save Koch is impressive in the weight of its narrative choices, but a little cushioning could have gone a long way in making unraveling its mystery more enticing.
