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.

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.

May 1, 2019

Copy Kitty is a fountain of content and fun, giving 2D action fans a unique synthesis of old concepts they don't want to miss.

Apr 29, 2019

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

9.5 / 10.0 - Red Dead Redemption 2
Oct 25, 2018

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.

8 / 10.0 - Forza Motorsport 7
Oct 3, 2017

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

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.

Nintendo delivers a new twist on Punch Out for The Switch and it already feels like the foundation of a new franchise.

If you own PSVR, PlayStation VR Worlds is something you will need to try out, just be aware this is an overall shallow experience.

Diablo III is only getting better with each new version. Well worth jumping into if you love a loot driven experience.

Reaper of Souls will feel like a brand new game. Right from the get go, it is clear that Blizzard has taken what they have learned and addressed what people were upset about.
