7 / 10.0 - Rage 2
May 19, 2019

Rage 2 is a great twitch-shooter, an okay driving game, and a boring open-world game. The story doesn’t serve the game in a manner that makes it compelling, or lift it above your generic shooter, and that is a pity as the idea behind this world could be interesting and engaging.

4 / 10.0 - Crackdown 3
Mar 10, 2019

Crackdown 3 is boring, lifeless, and generic. How this game survived and Scalebound didn't is a mystery to me.

Anyone expecting a true combat flight sim will be disappointed as this is not that type of game, but for everyone else wanting to feel like Maverick taking on the unnamed bad guys in Top Gun, this is the game to play.

9 / 10.0 - Hitman 2
Nov 18, 2018

Hitman 2 is a worthy successor to the first reboot. While it could’ve been a meaty expansion, given the focus on refining mechanics rather than introducing new ones, it's a perfect sequel to a near-perfect game, and why would you mess with perfection?

If you have nothing else to play or have fond memories of the original series then this game will fill a hole in your library.

6.5 / 10.0 - Lost Sphear
Feb 5, 2018

While the flaws in the game may seem as if I do not recommend the game, there is something intangible about it that keeps you coming back

7 / 10.0 - The Escapists 2
Nov 12, 2017

The Escapists 2 is a fun puzzle game with a unique premise, and while the game could use a more detailed tutorial system, once you invest the time to learn the different systems you will be rewarded with a fun mental workout.

At the end of the day, AC:Origins is an intriguing game. The extra time has allowed the developers to sort out some technical issues that have plagued the series while also adding in improvements. The story, however, is nothing new or fresh, and the structure has not evolved beyond the now familiar Ubisoft open-world recipe.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole is a good game buried beneath some crassness. The mechanics are perfect for newcomers and veterans alike to the turn-based JRPG-inspired gameplay, and while the story isn’t as good as it should be it holds the space between battles together nicely.

If you enjoy stealth and tactical games and even some Japanese history I suggest that you pick it up. The game can be tough as nails and the temptation to rage quit when nearly an hour of progress is lost because you saved in the wrong place is there, but the satisfaction when you get things just right will soon have you coming back for more.

8.5 / 10.0 - Everybody's Golf
Aug 29, 2017

Everybody’s Golf is a worthy addition to the series and a welcome addition to the PS4 library. If you want a game for when you have ten minutes to spare, or one in which you can challenge yourself as you seek to set better scores on the leaderboards, look no further.

7.5 / 10.0 - The Sexy Brutale
May 7, 2017

The Sexy Brutale is a small game, set in a limited space, with big ideas. The plot is merely the container for a very clever puzzle game, and what a container it is. It is a very creepy game, standing in contrast to the bright cartoon-like art style. The sense of dread and foreboding as I raced against the clock to prevent each death literally gave me nightmares.

Full Throttle Remastered is a wonderful love letter to a genre past its prime and a very good game for those wanting to experience classic gaming at its finest.

Thankfully, combat is where the game shines. The gunplay is fantastic and the new contextual cover system works well, with only one or two instances where I couldn’t break or enter cover. The new jet pack is probably the best addition to the game.
