Hardcore Mecha has balanced itself just right. It is graphically impressive, It’s audio is excellent, and it gives you that golden oldie feeling with a modern control scheme. Harcore Mecha gets a Thumb Culture Gold Award. It’s a great game and you should give it serious consideration for your games library.
Fade To Silence is a good idea. It takes two popular and enjoyable genres to make its own style of game. Unfortunately for me, I think it should stick to one or the other. I think this will be one of those cult classic games where it has its followers but it’s not one I could recommend due to it being aimed for such a niche group. I give Fade To Silence a Thumb Culture Bronze Award.
ETRC is an excellent game and one the developers should be proud of. I loved my time on this game. I wish there were more choices in truck racing to compare this game too. Sadly there isn't, and it would be unfair to compare them to games like Project Cars 2 or GT Sport. It's really not like either of them but in some ways, it feels so much like it should be. Even though this game might be a niche market with it being truck racing. I have no hesitation in giving this game a Thumb Culture Gold Award.
Dick Wilde 2 is a fun game with an arcade feel and a slightly nostalgic innocence about it which reminded me of a golden age of gaming but with a modern VR twist. I would love to score this game higher but unfortunately, it doesn’t have the depth to make it an instant classic and off the top of my head I can think of multiple on the rail VR shooters that are worlds apart from this. I award Dick Wilde 2 a Thumb Culture Silver Award.
Lets not sugar coat it. The Division 2 is an excellent example of what a games company can do if they try. While I think Ubisoft have dropped in some really bad games over the last few years filled with bugs. This however for me is not one of them. Yes, I had one or two issues launching drones and turrets but since the last update I haven’t had any so I’m happy. Reviewing this game was a joy and I will carry on playing this game probably long after my friends have stopped but I don’t care. I love this game and accept it for what it is. A cover to cover shooter with an absolute mountain of activities and content.
ChromagunVR is a game worthy of your time and money. It’s a game that won’t break your piggy bank. It’s a fun game to play. The downside is there is no new content in ChromagunVR from the original. This is the original game but in VR. It does the job well and I didn’t experience any bugs, glitches or tracking issues. If you are a VR fan or a puzzle fan then this is a great game for you and a must buy. So yes it is aimed at a niche market of gamers.
Hitman HD Collection is a remaster of two classic games. You have to take this into account when you purchase this one. It is slightly higher priced than a lot of remastered games on sale at the moment. Although I think this is a great buy and should be in everyone’s collection if you enjoy Hitman. For me these are polar opposites regarding gameplay style and worthy of everyone’s time.
Spintires: Mudrunner is very addictive. It won’t appeal to everyone. I have to admit I was curious on this one but I wasn’t excited about it. Now I’ve played it that has changed. There is something about this game that makes you want to play just a little more and see what else you can discover.
This game seems to be perfect in my eyes regarding gameplay, audio and graphically. If I was forced to say anything negative about this game then I would say it's not for the casual racer. Not even slightly. The casual racer would probably play for an hour, stand up and announce the game is broken and it sucks. I say move out the way Nancy and let me play this game while you play your arcade racer. I can't stress enough how good I found this game and there have already been a lot of great racers out this year. With only one other major racing release this year to come which I mentioned earlier. Buy this game if you don't already own it. If you do own it I will probably see you on the track for a long time to come.
What do I make of Sneaky Bears? Firstly I love this game. Sure not every hardcore gamer or trophy hunter will love this game. It’s not to difficult to play, also there is no platinum trophy either. But I loved my time on this game so I will go back time to time and shoot some more bears, after all we can’t have them taking over now can we?
