- Metal Gear Solid 3
- Yakuza 0
- Persona 4 Golden
I really don’t have anything else to say about this game. It’s a glorified model viewer and other games in the series are far more out there with what they want to show to their audience. There are literally hundreds of anime fan-service games out there that are way better so check those out instead – Even if you want to check it out for what it does with the HD rumble and the Switch… Don’t. It does nothing. There’s your review.
In the end, I’d say that Yakuza Kiwami 2 is still a decent game that has a lot going for it, but I really hope that for the next remake or entry in the series they improve upon everything about the Dragon Engine if they plan on keeping it around, as well as changing up the design choices regarding how you level up and improve your character.
Despite everything that goes against this game’s favour, I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to almost anyone who wants a new horror game. It is very short but it’s definitely worth it – Snuggling up in bed late at night and playing this in handheld mode was like telling myself a scary story in the dark; the story is fantastic and the way the whole game ties in the historical and cultural aspects of Taiwan into it is really interesting and unique. The game boasts some of the coolest puzzles I’ve seen in a game in a long ass time and overall I was scared… Which is what this game needed to do first and foremost.
The game is really short which can be a huge detriment, because I really could sink hundreds of hours into this type of game, but it does have some challenge modes and even an extra character that you can play around with that certainly help with the longevity of the game. With all that being said, I can say that this game is easily one of my favourite titles on the Switch, and I feel you’ll be doing yourself a disservice if this isn’t in your library. Here’s hoping to some new content soon!
I would reccomend Insane Robots to anyone who is looking to get into card games like Hearthstone. It’s quick, simple and to me is like a much larger tutorial to way more complicated games. I think this game served it’s purpose well and it’s fun for any audience.
Overall I didn’t really have a good time with Anima: Gate of Memories – The Nameless Chronicles. It was way too boring and easy for a game that tries to mix RPG elements with Bayonetta & Devil May Cry – The gameplay was a slog and the story was mediocre; the only things I found interesting at most were the art style for the most part and the music.
Overall I had a good time with the Lost Child. If you’re waiting for SMTV or something this will definitely scratch that itch as well as give you a really cool and sometimes legitimately interesting story. Where the game falls flat is once again the odd art direction and diminishing returns of its dungeons and combat encounters. If they were able to spice up the game in that regard it would have been an almost amazing game.
So all things considered, I had a pretty great experience with his game. The gameplay can get somewhat repetitive and there are some things here and there which can play to Milanoir’s strengths… But also it’s weaknesses. The fun characters of Milanoir and their interactions with each other, the fun and dumb world established in this game, and the environments explored is what made it for me.
Anyways, I’ve rambled on long enough; so whats the verdict? Well, I think for the fun romp it is, Gal Gun sure has a lot more to offer from it’s previous entry. I think that if this series wants to go on, however, it needs to just have better feeling gameplay to keep people engaged… And though the story isn’t something Shakespearean, it certainly gets the job done in a silly and harmless manner.
