Vampyr is a game marred by a mediocre combat system, but you know what? I don’t care – It’s the first game in a long time that made me think Vampires are cool again, with an incredibly interesting story that has me unable to stop thinking about what’s happening next.
So here I am, gushing over a nostalgia filled love letter to classic JRPG’s when all you really wanted to know was: Is it any good? Well that depends on you as a person really, Lost Sphear is one of those game’s I have found really difficult to score. For old school fans of the genre I would say that Lost Sphear is an absolute must play however as a game on it’s own merits it relies a little too heavily on nostalgia to really come out on it’s own.
There is a lot to love in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy which scratches the Uncharted itch in a really nice way whilst giving hope that a new direction for Uncharted would be very welcome – my only issues as a whole is that there is just not enough added to the game for it to be a perfect 10/10
.hack://gu is a great JRPG series with a lot to love for any fan of the genre, whilst the game does fit in after the original .hack series, it is not a necessity for one to have played all four of the original games but it certainly helps… If you can afford it. WHY Bamco decided to do these 4 as the first bunch of remasters is beyond me because it would have made a lot more sense to do the far superior games first helping people to get more out of “The World”.
To me, Wolfenstein 2 had a hell of a lot to live up to following my experiences with The New Order and The Old Blood and to me this perfectly delivers on all fronts. Wolfenstein 2 has an even better storyline backed up by absolutely perfect gameplay and fantastic sound design. The game never outstays its welcome and the only thing that I feel that could possibly have let it down is that I NEEDED more after my 11 hour playthrough.
I had one of the worst times of my gaming life whilst playing through The Town Of Light, I felt constantly on edge and uncomfortable throughout the entire experience. With this in mind, I absolutely LOVED my time with the game, I just wish it was a bit longer and quicker at times.
Torment: Tides of Numenera is one of the most engrossing storylines I have ever experienced in gaming that is just a little let down by dodgy frame rates and a little TOO much going on at times but if you are looking for something to truly sink your teeth into then I 100% recommend picking this up.
I had tons of fun with this game and found myself often going back into the previous missions to try and find the collectibles or simply do the mission a little better, whilst this may seem standard for a lot of players it has been a long while since a game has provided me with such levels of fun and variety that had me crawling back for more.
An incredibly competent brawling RPG that can sometimes collapse under it’s own weight with a huge amount of boring minigames (excluding Karaoke) that leave little to no impact in a title that has fantastic elements better than the sum of it’s parts. After playing a title like this, I wish Sega would push more games out for the mature market as this is clearly what the excel at. I already see the end of year countdown now: “Top 10 Suprises of 2017 Number 1: Yakuza 0”. Well done Sega, much much much more of this please.
Whilst I have not ventured into the multiplayer very much mode as of yet (That section of the review will be coming soon!) I have found a lot to love in Watch Dogs 2. It is not a perfect game by any means but it is an incredibly fun experience with lovable characters and side stories which I highly recommend picking up.
