This is definitely a must own game. The developers did the survival horror genre a great service with making this. They have listened to feedback from their first game and delivered. Not only did they listen, they also expanded on the ideas and they did so with great care. This is a great game for any survival horror fan and even an easy decision maker for those just looking for a single player game with a story you can get lost in. It balances out the weird, alter universe stuff with a good dose of combat and narrative scenes.
Overall this game deserves its praise for both the graphical improvements shown from their first games this generation until now and the superb gameplay that they present. It's honestly hard to find a flaw at this point in the game and not to recognize this as one of the best first person shooters of the generation. There is no doubt that most FPS games strive to deliver this performance but fail to do so on many levels. Machine Games does it with great ease it seems. I was sold on this game when they first announced it due to the connection they were able to have on me with their previous games. What I didn't expect is the level of improvements they have made in such a short period of time. They truly care about the franchise and making sure it delivers on all points right up until the credits roll. If you've not purchased this game yet, I would suggest doing so in the link provided below, or on the platform of your choice. It is definitely a game you are not going to want to miss out on. Also, if you are new to the franchise, go ahead and pick up Wolfenstein: The New Order and the prequel to the story, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood to give yourself the utmost treat to such a quality franchise. What is even better is you can purchase The New Order and The Old Blood in a double pack right now for the low price of $29.99 to make sure you get the full and complete story of BJ Blazkowicz and his Nazi fighting ways.
The American Dream VR is a decent take on gun culture in the USA. It really does lampoon some traditional American experiences very well, the only issue is that the game only really has one joke. While the joke absolutely works, it also wears thin. The game does try to bring more elements in near the end, shifting the focus to the nature of capitalism rather than the second amendment. However, this felt tacked on and was never properly explored. The gameplay is generic enough that it will get you through each area without a lot of effort or without you feeling bored. Luckily Michael Dobson’s Buddy Washington absolutely pulls you through the game. If you go into this looking for something fun with guaranteed laughs you will be pleased. If you’re desperate for some absolutely biting satire that digs into the roots of the problems in the United States of America while also getting to play an over the top action game like Far Cry, you’ll be disappointed.
Overall the game is pretty fun and definitely a choice for the hardcore gamer out there that likes solving puzzles and enjoys a challenge that matches that of some of the hardest games out there. You’ll definitely find yourself in a challenging environment unlike any other and you’ll have to stay one step ahead of your current movement to know exactly what to do next in order to evade the enemy and have time to perform an action. I wouldn’t suggest this game for the casual player though as you will likely get frustrated and never attempt to finish the game again. For the price however you may be tempted to give it a shot no matter what.
This game has it all. If you are any type of fan of the interactive genre then this game is definitely for you. Not sure this game will sway newcomers to the genre but will definitely grab anyone that is remotely interested in it. Another must-have title in a long line of must have titles PlayStation has delivered this gen.
The game reminded me immediately of old arcade racers Pole Position and Out Run. The turns and the feel of the car nail the almost recreation of that special gameplay back in the 16 bit era. With what feels like unlimited high-speed action through consistent upgrades to the fast paced passing and wrecks you will encounter while racing your way to be number 1. The mechanics for each of the cars feels like they were meticulously crafted as each handles almost perfectly. You will be second guessing yourself after each upgrade, wondering if you picked the right one to make your next few races as easy as possible.
I really enjoyed my time with this game. I found the levels to be enjoyable and the challenges, when presented, to be overall well done. I would have liked to see more level design and uniqueness in each of the 40 levels but nonetheless it was a fun and enjoyable time. I also am taking in to consideration the pricing for the game when I play and review this. Though there are some things I'd like to see different, for the cost of the game I really cannot complain with what is available. Also for any trophy hunter out there, this is a quick platinum you can pick up for a cheap price.
Even if you aren’t a fan of the pinball genre, you will want to give this a try. It’s action gameplay, open world exploration, and platforming sections brought together in a wonderful and fun package. This is a game you can sit back and relax while enjoying the melodic music playing. You won’t find yourself so frustrated that you are raging and you won’t find that you have a game that will be completed in an hour. It truly is the best combination of mechanics and the best way to get those wary of the pinball mechanics to ease up and open their minds. This game is definitely a must have on your list of games.
If you are looking for a party game that will test friendships and show your ability to face tough decisions then this is the game for you. This game will ask you questions you never thought possible and some you wish that were never possible. It would be a great game to have at a family gathering or inviting your friends over to put them to the test. Definitely recommend this title for anyone out there looking for a fun and hilarious time with your friends or family.
This game is highly recommended for anyone that would like a break from the overblown budget, crappy story, mediocre gameplay that AAA seems to have been giving you. This game is not only very cheap but it's also cross buy with the PlayStation Vita and with separate trophy lists. This means with only a small purchase price you will get two copies of the game. One to play while you are at home wanting to unwind and one to take with you on the go to fill that monotonous ride to work, school or that dreaded shopping trip with the Misses.
