Brendan Frye's Reviews

8 Years in the industry and currently working as Editor at CGMagazine. Have been playing games since the late 80's. Still view Doom as one of the pivotal moments in game design.

Outriders Worldslayer is a great time for fans of the base game with a dedicated squad of friends to play with, but players looking for a single player experience, or something more than ‘just Outriders’ will have a rough time.

Fobia - St. Dinfna Hotel delivers a great story and innovative concept, but poor combat, cumbersome inventory, and gameplay holds it back from being a great indie horror entry.

Filled with haunting loneliness and mesmerizing beauty, if you love an indie game that can push what story and gameplay can be, you need to give Far: Changing Tides a try.

5 / 10.0 - Battletoads
Aug 19, 2020

Battletoads, with its vibrant animations, captures the spirit of the original, but also does so by bringing in all of the lousy gameplay elements that dragged the original game down.

8 / 10.0 - Romancing SaGa 3
Nov 15, 2019

Between Romancing SaGa 3 and two more English SaGa games on the horizon, it's a good time to be a devotee of this oddball RPG series. Let me hear your rallying cry, SaGa fans: "There are dozens of us! Dozens!"

While I was skeptical at first, World of Warships has made the transition to consoles better than I thought possible, and is a blast to play!

5.5 / 10.0 - Sea of Solitude
Jul 10, 2019

A clearly personal story told in a bland repetitive 3D platformer with padded gameplay, terrible voice acting, and no subtlety.

For such a largescale RPG as Final Fantasy XII, it's great being to experience the title at home and on the go with all necessary enhancements

World War Z has a great gameplay hook, but it unfortunately lacks the variety needed to keep it engaging past the first few hours.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the best game Rockstar Games has ever made, as it deftly combines one of the richest open worlds ever made with one of the most compelling stories of this generation.

Forza Motorsport 7 is an exhilarating racing experience that is slightly bogged down by a convoluted and time-consuming progression system.

Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception tells two different stories—one serious, one sexy—that are so at odds with one another that it loses itself in the process.

Despite the price, Diablo III: Rise of the Necromancer is a must have for anyone that loves the series, it's a shame it took so long to be added to the game.
