Parham Aghakhani's Reviews

A very short-fused and strict reviewer with a tendency to run into all sorts of bugs and issues while playing video games. Favors indie and retro games to AAA experiences.
8 / 10.0 - Manifold Garden
Oct 22, 2020

in the end, it can be said that Manifold Garden is a very worthy puzzle title. Although the game environments are designed to be very simple, they often find a special beauty during the gameplay, especially in Photo Mode, and the puzzles in them are also cleverly designed and challenge your mind. However, this particular identity of the game will not be to the liking of a number of players, especially those who have problems with the special and three-dimensional nature of the puzzles.

3.5 / 10.0 - AeternoBlade II
Oct 10, 2020

Despite some obvious efforts by the developers to create a good title, AeternoBlade 2 does not go far beyond the overall quality level of the first game. Just like the first version of the series, good ideas can be found in this title; But their poor performance, along with issues such as tedious struggles, long loads, and questionable choices in game design, has left us with a title that can hardly be recommended to the general audience, especially players of the previous version.

10 / 10.0 - Hades
Oct 5, 2020

It is no exaggeration to say that Hades is one of the best titles of 2020 and the best Supergiant Games ever made. The huge achievement that this game has achieved in the field of storytelling and its combination with exciting gameplay is really commendable and it is also a pleasant experience in terms of audio and video. Whether you are a fan of Rogue-lite games or not, you should not miss the Hades experience.

One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows had the unlimited potential to create an extraordinary experience, but this was not accomplished due to numerous design flaws. Despite some upgrades, OPM still retains much of the weaknesses and disadvantages of the former Spike Chunsoft title and even added a number of new bugs to its mix. The result is a title that is neither capable of satisfying fans of the One Punch Man series nor Fighting style fans.

8 / 10.0 - Cat Quest II
Oct 18, 2019

Cat Quest II is a really good game and a sequel that surpasses the original game in many aspects.

8 / 10.0 - Exception
Oct 15, 2019

Exception is a fast and fluid platformer. It successfully manages to encourage players to play the game as fast as they can and does not punish them harshly upon a mistake which makes it more accessible, and the dynamic and changing design of its levels keep the experience fresh until the very end. However, it offers little to encourage replaying the levels and collect hidden items or set better time records

8 / 10.0 - River City Girls
Sep 25, 2019

It would be a lie to say River City Girls is not a good game. This game is full of charm and style, it is really fun to play and the high production values clearly show themselves. But the problem is that it misses some quality of life features to solve many of the recurring flaws in most of beat'em up games (like keys being set to perform multiple commands), and those same flaws have lowered the quality of this game's overall experience as well

9 / 10.0 - Ion Fury
Sep 17, 2019

Ion Fury is a nostalgic tribute to the classic '90s first person shooter games such as Blood, Shadow Warrior and especially, Duke Nukem 3D and despite running on a 20 year old technology, delivers a superb and extremely fun experience that even rivals most of the recent games released in this genre. FPS fans might not want to miss this game.

Children of Morta is a quality game with a fantastic narrative that despite of some of its issues, offers a really good experience. But the developers' focus on balancing the experience in co-op multiplayer mode has caused some shortcomings in the single player mode

2.5 / 10.0 - Run Roll Rumble
Aug 31, 2019

Run Roll Rumble takes the Super Smash Bros formula and gets nearly everything wrong about that game. It's filled with big issues and bad design choices that make it impossible to have fun with, and a severe lack of players that makes its online features completely useless. If you're after a good party game, there are much better alternatives out there

7 / 10.0 - Summer Catchers
Aug 30, 2019

Summer Catchers is a charming endless runner game with wonderful presentation and style, and an interesting narration. But the progression system, which is completely based on RNG and grinding rather than the players' skill, ultimately damages the experience

Aug 23, 2019

Being an extremely faithful remaster, Metal Wolf Chaos XD is definitely not up to today's standards. It's outdated in many aspects; but for the most part, it knows how to be ridiculously fun & entertaining. If you're not used to how old games were like, cannot handle absurd humor and most importantly, cannot tolerate playing a game in 30fps, you're not going to enjoy it. Otherwise, you're going to love it

Mighty Switch Force! Collection is a brilliant way to bring all the games in the series together and introduce them to a wider audience. But it could have been much better than what it currently is, boasting more features and content (like the "Hose It Down!" spin-off title) to make it the ultimate collection of the series' history. Nevertheless, it contains 4 really fun puzzle platformer titles which previous fans of the series and even newcomers to the franchise can enjoy playing alike.

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is not a flawless game and certain parts of it could have been much better, but no one can deny its high production values and how masterfully it is made. Wonder Boy / Monster World fans will find themselves right at home and experience a vastly improved but extremely faithful successor to those titles, and newcomers to the franchise can enjoy playing one of the best and most fun metroidvania titles released in the recent years

Unfortunately, KILL la KILL -IF is a game that could have been great, but its issues have prevented it from happening. The game can satisfy KILL la KILL fans with its dazzling graphics and faithful take on the story. But it fails to capture the attention of players who are not familiar with the source material. This, coupled with a flawed camera system, a small amount of available content, and some questionable design choices such as locking nearly everything behind story mode completion, sadly makes for a mediocre title

Is Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night a really good game? Despite having some issues, it certainly is and will absolutely satisfy nearly every old and new player. But is it as fresh and captivating as Symphony of the Night? Sadly, it's not. It just reintroduces features we've seen in the past and perfects most of them, and adds not much of its own to the formula. RotN is a fantastic game that just lacks new & innovative ideas, and a solid foundation for possible future installments to build upon and create groundbreaking titles

8 / 10.0 - Blazing Chrome
Jul 16, 2019

Despite some issues, Blazing Chrome can be considered as a true spiritual to Contra Hard Corps. If you're a Contra fan, you'll find most of the things you wanted in a Contra title in this game as well and will be quite pleased with what you'll get. But the rest of players and especially those who are inexperienced in the Run 'n Gun genre might have issues with the game's difficulty and the amount of available content

Steel Sword Story is yet another example of how a game's flaws and issues can hold it back and forbid it to become what it could have been. Despite being really easy, the game is still a decent 2D platformer game. But the performance issues are so severe that progression has become a real hassle, and the gameplay is so short and simple that there's almost no reason to go back to it again

4 / 10.0 - Omen of Sorrow
Jun 29, 2019

While the developers have done their best, Omen of Sorrow is still a disappointing game. Not only many parts of the game are lacking which has resulted in it looking unfinished and lackluster, but even the combat is not fun and fails to entertain the players. And the situation gets even worse when we take the PC version's deficiencies and irritating performance issues into account

9 / 10.0 - My Friend Pedro
Jun 28, 2019

While My Friend Pedro might be short or lacking for some users, no one can deny its limitless excitement and how much fun it is to play. If you're tired of all the current realistic & serious shooters and just want to have some fun, My Friend Pedro is the best option
