For my first time playing a Taiko no Tatsujin game, I wouldn’t say I did too badly having played both the Switch and PS4 version. The PlayStation 4 version sadly is hard to get hold of physically in the UK and doesn’t come with a bundle which is disappointing and even worse is that the Switch USB drum doesn’t work with it either. So having to buy the game and drum from abroad and have them imported is quite a problem personally.
Over recent years the DC Universe has had some rough patches when it comes to their films but this isn’t the case for the comics and games. Lego DC has had some fantastic heavy hitters in the Lego game series and has offered yet another fun pack game into the mix. Sure it had the issues with the camera angles (which seems to be present in every Lego game) and the lack of free roam in terms of map size but these were the only two things I could point out as its faults.
Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption really packs a punch. The whole idea of making a Shadow of the Colossus and Dark Souls hybrid is a risk that this game nails without a doubt. Sure it feels like more could have been added like maybe some levels you have to go through to get to the bosses but it’s not the end of the world. Having a mechanic that makes you weaker, not stronger is a nice twist and certainly makes the boss fights more tense the closer you get to defeating them.
Overall Agony is a good game, though it lacks a really scare factor after the first few scares it makes for some unique gameplay in a well-designed environment. I like the fact that it’s not linear, you can explore loads of different areas and do different things from what the main story is offering.
When I first loaded the game, I thought that it was going to be very childish and mediocre… but I was wrong. The art style is very colourful, unique, and has a hint of Minecraft to its worlds. Though simple and fun, the game allows for the player to create worlds that can inhabit different organisms. All it takes is the right temperature and moisture levels for life to blossom. It’s in-depth look at the evolution of the world is its big selling point, even taking into consideration the food chain and how if a predator hasn’t got enough prey it will become extinct.
Assassin's Creed Rogue was tones of fun and I personally am glad it got the remaster so that I had the chance to play it on current gen consoles. It was a nice chance to get to see Shay story in the whole series as well as a nice twist to play as a Templar.
The Witch and the Hundred Knights 2 was very enjoyable from the beginning. Be worried that with this type of game you’ll have to do a considerable amount of reading but that personally didn’t put me off, I loved hundred knight and I loved the hack and slash feel the game had.
Just like in the first Battlefront game in 2015 it doesn’t disappoint when it comes to the graphical side of things. Naboo, looks stunning, Starkiller base from The Force Awakens look practically identical and when moving round the maps you get a sense of “I’ve seen this place before” or “this is the part in the film where…”. You can tell that a lot of effort has been put into making the levels really stand out and like the locations they are taken from.
Overall my time playing Yomawari: Midnight Shadows was mixed, at times I found myself really enjoying it and wanting to progress then other I just felt like I wanted to put the control down and not pick it back up. The story was quiet dark but at the same time made you feel for the two girls but not being able to fight back against the spirits in anyway was a huge bug bear for me.
The price currently sits at £7.99 for the game so again a bit much, though would highly recommend people to look out for it on sale, if you’re into puzzle games or just want something different because not going to lie the pros for the game out way the cons. You’ll definitely get some enjoyment out of this little indie game.
Aven Colony has shaped itself up well with the other city-building game that are on the market today. It offers a Campaign mode with a good story line and an array of different objects to help mix it up a bit as well as having the sandbox mode that allows for endless, customisable fun.
