Call of Duty: Modern Warfare manages to keep in the spirit of its inspiration while giving enough of a refresh of its tried and tested multiplayer (with a lot of lessons learnt from the Black Ops branch) to definitely come as a recommended game for any fans of the series, current, lapsed, or newly intrigued.
I certainly enjoyed my time with Sea of Solitude. Kay’s journey through the abandoned city had the right tone, and the amazing visuals of the world changing around you seamlessly as her and the other denizens’ emotions fluctuate throughout, was always something to behold.
Overall, my experience with Vermintide 2 was filled with ratman genocide induced glee, only the occasional matchmaking team-up proving too much to bear with and connections being stable enough, as well to avoid having blows miss or aimed shots wasted.
The pixel art style and isometric strategy battles remind me of all the good parts of games like Final Fantasy Tactics. Subset Games have a lot of experience in developing rich roguelikes, with previous title FTL standing out, and they’ve used that experience to blend with this strategy game to make a title that is definitely worth a look.
Overall WWE 2K18 is a fine example of a good wrestling game. It looks amazing, but just lacks enough improvements overall to really stand out among the current crop of 2K’s beyond those good looks, unfortunately leaving it short of being quite like no one.
Overall Cuphead has managed to live up to the hype that chased the game all through its lengthy development. The game has a character all of its own that bleeds out of every nook and cranny while it tests the limits of your perseverance against a wonderful gallery of enemies.
At the end of it all, Dawn of War 3 feels like a hybrid of the first two games in the series but between the wrong mix of mechanics and the lack of real graphical progress between iterations it hasn’t managed to live up to the standards set by the previous games.
