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.
This is a game that will stand the test of time and be one of the games that can be used as an educational opening with your child or allow a person to learn our history through another medium. Even though I had the opportunity to skip the cut scenes, I found myself definitely intrigued and engrossed in the story beautifully spoken by Sir Patrick Stewart. He absolutely was the best fit for the narrator role in this game. His voice definitely gave you the feel that you were in deed taking a trip back through the Memories of Us.
The game is absolutely perfect for its intended audience. From the looks of the puppet show they modeled and expanded this after it nails every aspect with great detail. This is a definite must have for any gamer out there with young children and the platform to play it on. It is a way to get the child engaged with learning that a normal preschool just cannot do. This interactive way of learning is definitely a way of the future and I hope we start to see more titles like it, being the parent of a 20 month old.
Thimbleweed Park is a point and click adventure game set in 1987 and follows two big city government agents Ray and Reyes on the quest to solve a small town murder. Or is that what the game wants you to think. You will find yourself trying to guess the next outcome and who could possibly be the killer. The best part is trying to figure out the motive behind it. The game takes twists and turns to an extreme with one of the biggest plot twists I've experienced in a game of this caliber in quite some time. With throwbacks to games of old and some self-deprecating humor in regards to game developers, Thimbleweed Park has it all.
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.
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 definitely one for the puzzle lovers. It’s really hard to find puzzle games where the developer for whatever reason didn’t get lazy and just reuse existing puzzles and just add more difficulty to them. What surprised me most about this title and that each level being unique and having a natural difficulty is that is was all created by a one man team. That is mind-blowing to me that this one man was able to take the time willingly to come up with not 25, not 75 but 100 unique levels and found a way to make the difficulty progression feel natural.
I definitely want to say this is a game to pick up for anyone looking for a challenge. You won’t be disappointed in that aspect at all. Something I always take in to consideration with most of these types of games is the pricing. The price is perfect for the title and you will definitely get your money’s worth. For any of the trophy hunters looking for another platinum to go after, this is your game.
Overall this game is wonderful. It screams play me and don't quit till it's over. I couldn't stop playing even after I beat the game. I must have completed this game over 12 times in row the first night I played it and even played some more the next day. I finally did complete the final trophy needed for the platinum but this game wasn't deleted off my PS4 afterwards because of just how much wholesome fun it is.
