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.
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

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.

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

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.

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

The Hong Kong Massacre is another example of how a game's flaws can hold it back, not allowing it to become what it could have been. The game is really fun at its core, but problems like limited gameplay and severe performance issues (on the PC version) have dragged down the overall experience.

4 / 10.0 - JUMP FORCE
Feb 21, 2019

After playing JUMP FORCE, I can't shake the feeling that it looks unfinished and/or rushed. At first, it looks fun and the problems look forgivable; but the more you dig deep into it, the more you can see how severely flawed it is. JUMP FORCE is unpolished, unimpressive, repetitive and definitely not a good game to celebrate Weekly Shonen Jump's 50th anniversary with it.

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

4 / 10.0 - E.T. Armies
May 7, 2018

Even if we consider the limitations and problems of the developers, E.T. Armies does not go beyond a weak and disappointing game in the end. The developers' efforts to create an AAA title are commendable, but lack of sufficient experience in this field, coupled with a series of mistakes, has made this title not to appear at a good quality level and also have a lot of problems; Problems that right now and years after the game's release date, show themselves much more than before and have drastically lowered its value

4.5 / 10.0 - Sonic Forces
Feb 16, 2018

Sonic Forces is supposedly made by the team that brought us Sonic Generations and Sonic Colors. However, the end result is not even nearly as good as those titles. Those who like the avatar creation system and how their avatars work together with the series' most iconic characters, will surely fall in love with this game. But those players who want to experience a good sonic game and have fun will be massively disappointed

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is not a bad game; It's fast, fluid and entertaining. But in the end, enjoying it depends on players' taste. If this is your first time trying a fighting game or you don't want complex mechanics, then you will have a lot of fun. But if you prefer technical controls and the same amount of content and quality that was available in the past BlazBlue titles, you will be utterly disappointed.

Even with some issues like improper graphical options on the PC version of this remaster, XXL 2 is still an enjoyable experience for the fans of the original game. However, because most of the game's mechanics and features have not aged well, it will most likely not appeal to new audiences

6.3 / 10.0 - Mortal Kombat 11
May 1, 2019

Mortal Kombat 11 is a great fighting game ruined by excessive amounts of grinding and also the bad quality of the PC port. The game itself is masterfully made & very fun to play, but the grind & the always-online requirement have dragged down the overall experience so much that they have drastically decreased its value

Gameplay-wise, Override a very entertaining game; especially when it comes to local multiplayer matches. But unfortunately and because of some issues like the lack of content, it cannot convince players to keep playing for a long time

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is a very rich collection of the series' 30-year history. It contains a huge number of games, in addition to a fantastic and high-quality collection of artistic images and designs of the history of this series. However, while it's full of content quantity wise, it lacks quality; and because a series of shortcomings, as well as many problems (especially on the PC platform), it does not have the quality it could've had

Just like its predecessors, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite has a very entertaining & addictive gameplay which is even more refined than before. But problems like poor presentation, lackluster roster and mediocre story mode & voice acting not only dragged down the experience, but also it's hard to ignore them and enjoy the game as it .should

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

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

When considered as a separate and new title on its own, Team Sonic Racing is a really fun game with well-thought team mechanics; despite having some problems. But when compared to previous Sumo Digital racers, it does not have the same amount of charm and polish those games had. Therefore, those who play this game expecting it to be another All-Stars racing will be disappointed

7 / 10.0 - Tower 57
Dec 25, 2017

Even with all the issues in Tower 57, like being too easy and too short, it's still enjoyable and reminds everyone of why some old games like The Chaos Engine became classics. The graphics & animations are great, the soundtrack is well-composed and the gameplay is engaging and fun in both single player & multiplayer modes
