Parham Aghakhani's Reviews

Previously a fan of literally every AAA game ever created, but then completely ignored them because of a severe lack of new ideas and the fading fun factor in them. This led to being an extremely strict and sometimes unforgiving person when it comes to criticizing games, recommending only what is fun and worth playing to his audience. Now constantly in search of new and fresh experiences, hidden indie gems and retro gaming's timeless & lesser known artifacts while desperately trying to make them known to the world.

10 / 10.0 - The Messenger
Sep 24, 2018

The Messenger is more than a mere homage to games from 80s and 90s and especially, Ninja Gaiden; because through its stunning looks, clever writing, fantastic soundtrack and amazing gameplay, it has created its own identity and turned out vastly superior to all of those titles. It's a quality game that makes you want to get back to it as fast as you can and play more. The Messenger is a must-play and no one should miss it

Those who thought Rev2 will be vastly different from REVELATOR, surely will be disappointed. But that's hardly a flaw; Because Rev2 is the most complete version of Xrd series. With a solid gameplay, great rock and metal soundtrack, marvelous graphics and one of the best tutorials in fighting game history, Rev2 is the best choice for newcomers and veterans alike

9.5 / 10.0 - GRIS
Dec 20, 2018

GRIS is a mind-blowingly fantastic combination of art and video games. It doesn't have lots of gameplay time; but in return, and through its incredible combination of visuals, music, and storytelling, it features one of the most beautiful, memorable, and emotional experiences ever delivered in a video game

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

9 / 10.0 - Cuphead
Oct 9, 2017

The long wait for Cuphead was really worth it. Its great graphics and fantastic soundtrack are fully reminiscent of early 20th century animations and especially Disney & Max Fleischer cartoons. The gameplay, while being hard & not pulling any punches, is very satisfying and its few problems do not diminish its total value.

9 / 10.0 - Sonic Mania
Sep 6, 2017

Sonic Mania is not only one of the best titles in the series, but is also one of the best platformer games in recent years. It's clear that this game is made by people who really love the series and definitely knew what they were doing; because it's full of nostalgia, color, passion and personality. If you're a fan of sonic series or platformer games, you should not miss Sonic Mania

9 / 10.0 - Yakuza Kiwami
Mar 13, 2019

Yakuza Kiwami is a fantastic remake of the original PS2 game. It improves & expands Yakuza 1 to create an experience that is new & fresh for new audiences, while being familiar & nostalgic for the old fans at the same time. Being a faithful remake, Kiwami is not as good as the newer Yakuza titles and seems a bit outdated in some spots; but just like all the games in the franchise, is a blast from start to finish.

9 / 10.0 - 20XX
Aug 7, 2018

With 20XX, Batterystaple Games has successfully taken the Mega Man series' formula multiple steps further by adding a series of upgrades and Rogue-Like mechanics. The game looks great, the gameplay is fast and fluid, and although its difficulty sometimes seems insane and, in some cases, even unfair, it's still a fun, exciting, and satisfying title

9 / 10.0 - Engare
Feb 26, 2018

Engare cannot be completely considered as a game, because it's mostly a tool to unleash the creativity and imagination of its players. Those who are only after the gameplay and nothing else, won't get much out of Engare; but those who love mathematics and/or geometry or are doing graphical work, will undoubtedly enjoy playing it and tampering with its drawing tools
