Truthfully an amazing experience and this will be the second game for me, which if I can get amnesia and forget all about the playthrough, just to feel it again, I’d totally go for that. I can, without a doubt, recommend Hellblade to everyone. It’s definitely one of those rare gems out there on the market that I am absolutely happy to have.
What can I say, this season is turning out to be one hell of a journey and I am loving every bit of it. I can’t really think of anything negative I want to whine about or something that would stop me from giving this episode a full on 10, which is not something often occurring.
I’m gonna be honest with you. I did go a little ham on this review and I don’t really remember if I have to mention anything else, but I am pretty sure I covered the main aspects that I had to so take my word for it and go buy the game … it’s a great game, I have nothing to complain about. It’s engaging, immersive, dynamic, unique – not only in mechanics but the sumi-e art style as well, has over 120 pieces of music, that you never get bored of, a lot of character development and world-building … I am obviously gonna give Okami a 10/10, no regrets, go buy the game.
So first off, and this is actually without a doubt, I will give episode 5 as a separate entity a 10/10. Just like Batman: the Enemy Within's strong start, this series had an even stronger ending and I am so pleased with it. Indeed, I can say that it all led up to this moment and it was all I was hoping for.
As a verdict, I see no reason not to give this another 10/10. Nothing really I want to complain about. Engaging story, mixed up with enough gameplay sections, put in a mix of good OST and pleasant smooth graphics and we have a recipe for success.
I loved it so much and it managed to immerse me perfectly into the atmosphere of the guardians. The humor was on par where it could be, there were sentimental moments, enough action and all in all a very nice balance of all elements. I cannot wait to play the next episode and see the big reveal that we found at the end of episode 2.
The necromancer class itself is very well polished and I am so much in love with it, however, for a standalone DLC and the pricing in mind, I think I would have liked to see more necromancer included aspects in terms of lore, instead of cosmetic stuff.
"I don't know what it is about those dark dystopian game settings that I love so much, but let me tell you that Dark Train was way more than I ever expected and at the very least, I didn't expect it to touch my heart in the way it did. I'm not talking about where the story gets so sad that you sit down and cry, no, I'm referring to being able to connect and have a sentimental moment."
The episode itself spans about 2 hours long, which I believe is longer than your typical Telltale episode, so I very much enjoyed that (think is something characterized for Batman, I do believe the game’s episodes were longer than usual, or maybe that’s just the feel I’m getting … but I believe they are, because Tales from the Borderlands had that feel … feel only, so I can differ). In any case, I will definitely be eagerly awaiting what comes next in store for Batman…
Ah, so we’ve reached the point of the verdict. I’ve been handing out a lot of perfect scores lately, you know with Hellblade, Batman: The Enemy Within, Okami, etc., which is not something I do often and I’m a bit saddened that I can’t really give a 10 for CHUCHEL as well.
