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.
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

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.

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.

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.

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

One Finger Death Punch 2 is a massive upgrade compared to OFDP 1 and a worthy sequel with better graphics, animations & music tracks, and much more game modes & hidden extras. The game is very fun to play and its sole big problem is that some people won't appreciate the new brawler system

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.

Given that the computer port has many problems, the game itself is of great value. Despite of its average graphics, The King of Fighters XIV is one of the best recent fighting games because of a huge roster, numerous playable modes and a fantastic gameplay

8.5 / 10.0 - Giga Wrecker
May 1, 2017

Giga Wrecker is a game which proves its creators at Game Freak are really talented and can create enjoyable games with different gameplay ideas. Elements of platforming, combat and puzzle-solving are well put together and deliver an enjoyable experience. But sadly, a series of problems have prevented the game from being a masterpiece.

RUINER is a great game. Its excellent visuals & amazing soundtrack create an engaging atmosphere and combat is exciting & fast-paced. But unfortunately, its brutal difficulty & linear, combat-focused gameplay might discourage some players from continuing the game

Dec 3, 2017

Despite some flaws like the limited combat or repetition, Hand of Fate 2 is a great title and an improvement over the first game. The visuals, as well as music and voice acting, are wonderful; and the gameplay, which is a great mix of different styles and mechanics, is very entertaining and satisfying for players who have patience and determination

8.5 / 10.0 - Pikuniku
Feb 13, 2019

Pikuniku is a short & sweet experience that never takes itself seriously. The game is super fun and cheerful thanks to its gorgeous appearance, well-composed music tracks, delightful gameplay and good sense of humor. However, its short length might leave you wanting more.
