The Church in the Darkness is built on the mechanic of making numerous runs through the story with the aim of encountering all the different end games, but it just doesn’t hold your attention long enough to make it worthwhile sticking with it.
it does have more to offer, but because Codemasters have been getting the simulation style of racing right for a couple of years now, there isn’t a vast amount they needed to improve on, other than cosmetically, but what has been improved is just about noticable.
At first glance, a game that might be fun for an hour or so, you’ll be surprised by the hidden depths of Party Golf. With more customisations that you can shake a stick at, you’d find it very difficult to get bored with this game, and played with friends its certainly one of the best party games available on the Xbox One.
Thanks to its rogue like nature, For the King has some replay factor in it, as long as you can psychologically get past the slight grind of having to play the same parts over and over to get deep enough into the game for the variety of scenarios and landscapes to really come into play.
I felt like I’d played this game before with a different skin on it, and its yet another case of a RTS game trying to jump from PC to console and being sold short by the inability to replicate the fluidity of mouse and keyboard in to play with a controller.
Die-hard fans of Power Rangers are likely to purchase Battle for the Grid regardless, but I’d be surprised if they play it for very long. As for anyone looking for a memorable new fighting game, I’d advise you swerve this effort and look elsewhere.
Stellaris has plenty of depth without being too complicated for newcomers to play, will give you a different gaming experience every time you play a new game, and the storyline, although sedate at times, still packs in plenty of excitement and great storytelling.
Overall I think Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 2 is something that has been made for the enthusiasts and players who are already fans of the sport. Despite the smooth slick presentation, I’m not sure many new converts will be won over to the sport, as its not really a game you can just pick up and play.
Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics presents itself as competent with solid gameplay, but is very much lacking in character or depth to keep you playing beyond one playthrough. The framework is there but its crying out for more in the way of variety that could be fixed with some decent DLC content.
