I have never been too into survival horror games, but have played and really enjoyed some over the years. I was hoping that Uncanny Valley would be one of the good ones. For me, it failed to do so–it wasn't terrible but the lack of a linear storyline made it more confusing than enjoyable for me. Fans of horror survival games may enjoy it more; however, casual players of the genre may want to wait for a price slash.
In the end, the overall difficulty of the game makes Hive Jump a hard game to recommend. Players looking for a one player run-and-gun game should look to other titles. If you like difficult multiplayer games, this might be the game you are looking for.
Mech Rage isn't a bad game, but it also isn't a great game. It fails to bring anything we haven't seen before to the genre. Despite not having too much variance from other top-down action shooters, Mech Rage wasn't entirely terrible but there wasn't anything that made me want to scream “Yes, come play this!”. The $9.99 price tag isn't too bad however you may want to wait for a sale to pick this one up.
Demetrios – The Big Cynical Adventure isn't the best game I have played but it certainly is fun and has its moments that will make you laugh. It also offers a fair amount of actual gameplay before the credits roll. With the addition of trying to reach all of the achievements, there is plenty of gameplay to go around.
Whether or not it is your first time playing or the tenth time, Grim Fandango Remastered still seems enjoyable and holds up over all these years. Although there are a few complaints here and there they are minor and shouldn't be held too much against the title. The overall story is a rewarding experience that should not be missed.
Smash Bros.Ultimate does a great job bringing together all of the characters from previous titles. It also does well at representing a vast history of gaming. Spirits Mode did a great job of including characters in the game and giving a solid feel like a tribute to gaming history. The ability to adjust and customize a game to one's liking certainly is a standout feature. With so many characters, stages and game modes, Smash Bros. Ultimate is a fantastic experience whether it is your first time or you're a series veteran.
Starlink certainly holds up in terms of gameplay and adventure. Another strong suit is the fact you don't actually have to buy any of the actual accessories since they can all be bought through the shop including the game itself, kind of like DLC. Whether or not you are a Star Fox fan, you should definitely give this game a go.
In the end, Siegecraft Commander seems to fall flat in terms of fun and entertainment. There are a lot of challenge associated with the game. It's not necessarily always a bad thing but in this case, it just did not work. Fans of real-time strategy games or any other game probably should look elsewhere for a fun and rewarding experience.
Despite the lack of more expansive exploration and getting stuck in walls, Lifeless Planet was great fun. The story was very strong and the soundtrack and background music really set the tone for it over all. If you haven't played Lifeless Planet in the past it is certainly worth your time.
Despite having a very similar feel to the first game, De Blob 2 manages to stand out on its own. The overall storyline does hold it back slightly. However the additions to gameplay, new abilities and the upgrades to De Blob and Pinky add substance. The addition of a Co-op mode also makes playing with a friend enjoyable.
Hacky Zack is fun and interesting. It is best played in two player co-op mode. It makes the challenges a little less challenging and offers a fun time while doing it. Players looking for a great co-op game to play on their Switch won't be disappointed with Hacky Zack.
In the end, Code of Princess EX manages to combine all three styles rather well. The unique combination of genres certainly make it an interesting experience. Players looking for a good co-op experience can certainly enjoy this game. If you're looking for a solid beat-em-up – or even a change of pace to the usual stage-to-stage fighting style – this one is worth checking out.
In the end Pixel Action Heroes has some fairly solid gameplay. With Online matches it certainly is worth the $4.99 price tag. It has a bit of everything for everyone, if creativity is your thing you can create maps to battle on. If classic deathmatches are your thing it has those too. If you're looking for a crazy soccer alternative there is that too.
Super Volleyball blast didn't really have too many features that stuck out to me, however it did a great job at realistic volleyball play. Players who really enjoy volleyball will have fun with the game. Players looking for a sports title with highly detailed characters and gameplay may want to look elsewhere. It certainly isn't a bad game, but there isn't anything that makes it a must-have title.
In the end, despite a few drawbacks, Octopath Traveler lives up to the hype of the throwback style of gameplay. Allowing players to choose one of eight characters is an interesting concept. Giving players the option to choose which character to add to the party also adds a great deal of strategy. Visuals, as well as music, are both great. They managed to do exactly what was set out to do: make a modern JRPG with retro aesthetics. Long time JRPG fans or even newcomers should certainly take the time to play this game.
Paranautical Activity was an interesting play, however the lack of progression of difficulty made it a struggle to enjoy. Even at a decent selling price of $7.99, the frustrations I encountered while playing the game make it hard to recommend.
Caveman Ninja, although difficult at times, has a lot going for it. Whether you have fond memories of pumping quarters into an arcade box or playing one of its console ports – even if you have no previous awareness of the game – it certainly is fun. Using the save ability and unlimited continues also helps dwindle some of the difficulty.
