- Uncharted series
The frights are also varied (as you’d expect from a horror game) and 10x worse in VR, there are times which are just god damn creepy with sounds all around you, and other times where they’ll chuck in a jump scare which often (always) made me scream like a little girl.
I had never played a Demon Gaze game before and totally didn’t know what to expect when I put the game on; I didn’t even know that it’s essentially a 2D dungeon crawling JRPG focused around strategy fighting and turn based combat! I’ve come out of the game pleasantly surprised and it will definitely be something I’ll play to the end, mainly when I’ve got nothing else to play.
Overall this game is everything i wanted from my headset: magic, dragons and sword swinging fun. I am enjoying it so much that I am not noticing it’s minimal flaws. The idea of a 100 hour RPG in VR was slightly daunting but now it’s all i want to play. I think to be able to revamp an old, over played RPG in this way is a massive achievement and I think this will add a lot of value to my PSVR headset.
There really isn’t a lot I can mark the game down for, it probably won’t get boring before the end, the gaming mechanics are great and the exploration and combat is a blast. Whilst it’s not going to win any awards for original game play or story telling it’s a game that has hours of fun to be had
As always it’s a mix of strategy and combat, this time with rpg elements thrown in, but for me it doesn’t really do any point that well. Once you’ve done one mission you’ve done them all. Travel here, defeat this guy and his army, take location, find some supplies. Rinse and repeat. Now there is fishing and hunting thrown in but the mechanics for these aren’t THAT good and won’t keep you entertained for hours Sometimes when you’re absolutely SURROUNDED by enemies the combat is pulled off well and can be really enjoyable but when enemies are sparse it’s not that exciting. Perhaps the clunky controls make it less enjoyable. I need a reasonable combat system when that’s all you’re doing when fighting (No magic or anything) and I couldn’t see myself wanting to use this system for hours. Overall it’s not awful, it just needs updating, a lot of updates. I think there are a lot of elements of a good game underneath but the final product here is a bit of a messy jumble and doesn’t have anything that makes me want to jump back in. Plus they’ve taken away the local coop which was always the best thing about these games.
Overall the idea is really good – a fitness game based around football which has the physics of Rocket League… But it’s just not executed that well. A lot more needs to be put in the game as a whole before I can honestly say that it’s worth picking up. For £14.99, this is a game that’s definitely not worth your money. I think if there were patches to improve things and more game modes added in, it would be a much better game
I honestly can’t decide if I enjoyed this game or not. It’s a fun fair/mini-game collection that develops into something weirdly political. I think Samurai Punk have a huge vendetta against the American ways and are using this game as a vehicle for that opinion. I found myself wondering why I’d actually played the entire thing and I won’t be going back through it. But then again, it was a unique experience with fun minigames and some interesting gameplay. I feel like there’s an incredible game under there, somewhere but it was muddled by gun politics and weird level settings, perhaps Samurai Punk need to set their mind to something else. It’s about 2.5 to 3 hours long which isn’t much for £25 (£20 if you’re on PlayStation Plus). Obviously there’s a degree of re-playability, the ending actually loops you directly back around to the beginning, but I can’t imagine you’ll play this over and over. This may be worth picking up in a sale In the future, but I wouldn’t say you need to rush to buy it.
