$40 for three titles that are still fun to play and are decent representations of the originals isn’t bad value by any means, especially if you’ve never experienced them before or don't own the consoles necessary to play the older versions. It’s just a shame that so little effort seems to have been put into fixing the problems that did exist with these games.

There’s no denying that the series ends on a miserable note, but for what it’s worth, the Legendary Edition reminded me why I was so engrossed in this series over a decade ago.

If you want to check out where everything started, this is a decent trip down memory lane.

2 / 10 - What Happened
Aug 5, 2020

Without any unique selling point that it handles at least competently, What Happened is ultimately hard to qualify as anything more than awful.

2 / 10 - Down to Hell
Feb 4, 2020

Banish it back to whatever forgotten abyss it crawled out of, presumably one filled with lots of framerate drops and accompanied by a terrible metal soundtrack at all times.

2 / 10 - Fall of Light

There is no amount of enjoyment to be extracted from this experience.

As far as what a remake/remaster should accomplish, it's hard to view Brilliant Diamond as anything short of an absolute failure.

The saving grace is that Resident Evil Re:Verse is free so long as you own Resident Evil Village, but does that really count as a point in its favor when this is such a bland, uninteresting offering to begin with?

The price point is unreasonable, the games on display don't have nearly enough new content, and what is new has some charm but ultimately lacks staying power.

3 / 10.0 - Babylon's Fall
Mar 22, 2022

For what it’s worth, Babylon’s Fall is not the worst AAA game to ever release... it runs properly, doesn’t have any major glitches, and is functional without having to spend any extra cash. It’s just a very boring, uninteresting game that doesn’t work or engage without such a substantial time commitment that I don’t think it would be worthwhile to even the most diehard of Platinum Games’ fans.

3 / 10.0 - Walden, a game
May 17, 2018

Walden does a good job of being like the book, and a very bad job of being a video game.

3 / 10.0 - Just Die Already
May 20, 2021

Just Die Already is a game principally about killing people, but which fails to make the killing fun or satisfying in any way, and as a result presents about as much utility as a power drill made out of wet cardboard.

3.5 / 10.0 - Tunche
Nov 23, 2021

The core combat is slow and lacks variety, the story and artistic elements of the game don’t add much, and the mission design makes this an experience that's about as enjoyable as being thrown into the pathway of an oncoming 18 wheeler.

3.5 / 10.0 - Midnight Caravan
May 25, 2021

There’s potential here for something interesting, but potential can only carry you so far... which is up until the point when you get softlocked and have to alt + tab the game.

4 / 10.0 - Saints Row
Sep 21, 2022

This probably isn’t a bad game if you approach it as its own thing, independent of any of the expectations created by previous entries. But as a Saints Row title it leaves a very bitter taste.

Aliens: Fireteam Elite is probably what I deserve for getting my hopes up. But just like my plans for Summer of 2020, my hopes have been taken from me and ejected into the cold vacuum of space.

4 / 10.0 - Blightbound
Aug 26, 2021

Blightbound is a title without much of an identity to flaunt; it’s utterly devoid of anything that could make it stand out amidst the usual crowd of Steam dungeon crawlers, and it features numerous technical issues that hold over from its long stay in Early Access.

Somehow, Obsidian managed to create DLC for its decision-based RPG that contains only one meaningful decision and virtually no character specialization, so what we're left with is a watered-down first person shooter add-on that's a letdown on every front.
