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.
