With Cricket ’19, Big Ant has once again released a high-quality cricket title that is likely to keep fans invested until the next version. Sadly it is held back by a lack of polish in areas that have always shown a lack of polish, so the hope for these problems ever being fixed is fading. But that being said this is a great game and well worth your time with improvements both big and small over the previous version.
Like its predecessors it is dark, depressing and engaging, a game where you never feel comfortable. But unlike its predecessors, this feels like a complete package, not a promising game let down by technical issues. This is the best Metro has ever been and is one of the best FPS adventures that money can buy. Do not miss it.
neither the RPG or combat components are individually as strong as the games it is so clearly inspired by, but together they combine to create a wonderfully unique experience that takes both genres in new directions. Add to this some wonderful stealth mechanics and a sound and visual design second to none and Mutant Year Zero has easily climbed its way into my top games of the year.
