9 / 10.0 - Hitman 3
Jan 19, 2021

Hitman 3 is an excellent conclusion to the World of Assassination with insane amounts of replay value, especially if you have access to all the locations in the trilogy.

Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars is a decent game that suffers from repetition and poor AI making the game a tad too easy. It is a fun distraction and with 3 campaigns following different vampire clans, it is a long game. Unfortunately, you may get bored by the ease of winning long before you make it through the story and the different campaigns, but it does show promise and it is great to see strategy games make a comeback of sorts to PC and console.

It is a promising new direction that they are taking the franchise in and I hope the developer gets the chance to iterate on this formula as we desperately need a modern sniper game.

9.7 / 10.0 - Control
Aug 27, 2019

The wide assortment of abilities at your disposal, coupled with immersive gameplay and truly palpable, often bone-chilling atmosphere, easily make it one of Remedy's most refined and masterfully crafted works to date.

7.5 / 10.0 - Conan Unconquered
Jun 17, 2019

Conan Unconquered is a welcome addition to the RTS genre as it looks to change things up with a more defensive focus. The flaws in the game are not enough of a problem to stop me from recommending it to fans and newcomers to the genre. In fact, I would heartily agree to any invites for a co-op multiplayer session if you've picked it up.

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

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.
