David Poole's Reviews

Been playing games for over 25 years and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon, so I might as well write about them.

Overall, I really enjoyed BPM: Bullets Per Minute. Despite the moments of frustration of having to start from the very beginning after death, I always found myself going back for more. With each run, I would learn something new or change up my strategy. Maintaining perseverance, victory was suddenly a reality, and it was oh so satisfying. As someone that isn’t a big fan of roguelikes, this one struck a chord with me, and I’m really glad it did.

As far as anime games go, Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions definitely delivers a great sense of style. While there are some shortcomings, it makes up for them with epic gameplay moments and fun arcade football. Even if it might be too over-the-top for fans of games like FIFA, it will likely be a fun time for fans of the franchise.

With an endearing story and much deeper multiplayer experiences, Marvel’s Avengers is well worth another look. It’s clear that this game is a passion project for fans, by fans. Even if you think the developers didn’t have the fans in mind, the game asks you to think again.

9 / 10.0 - Tell Me Why
Aug 27, 2020

When it comes down to it, Tell Me Why is yet another solid story from Dontnod Entertainment. It's groundbreaking in its approach to representation, and yet it doesn't make that the focus of the story. Of course, this won't be a game for everyone, but those looking for fantastic writing, fun pop culture references and emotional storytelling will be in for a good time. The amazing performances and music also make it a stellar presentation.

It might not do anything groundbreaking, but it would be difficult to argue against this being the best Samurai Jack game. If you’re not a fan of the series though, there might not be a lot for you to enjoy here.

8 / 10.0 - Iron Man VR
Aug 20, 2020

When it comes to VR games, Marvel’s Iron Man VR is definitely among the more immersive experiences. While the action sequences could make up more of the bulk of the game, it compensates this with solid performances and a pretty good story. Load times may be plentiful, but the game makes up for it with an amazing sense of visual detail.

8 / 10.0 - Battletoads
Aug 19, 2020

Overall, the new Battletoads feels like a great way to continue the franchise. Rare put these cult classic characters in very capable hands, making for a very entertaining, yet still challenging, sequel. It’s definitely not going to be a long game, lasting only a handful of hours, but the replay value with friends will last much longer.

7.5 / 10.0 - Fight Crab
Aug 14, 2020

Fight Crab may not be a traditional fighting game, but it’s definitely a game that gets by on its humor. Luckily, the crazy fights and over the top situations make this game very funny to play. It also comes with a rocking soundtrack that really jazzes you up for the fights. While the idea is pretty simple, the results provide a fun ice breaker game. Even if it’s not the best fighter out there, you’ll still want talk about Fight Crab when it’s all over.

Overall, the Spider-Man: Far From Home Virtual Reality Experience is a fun time. It may be simple, but it gives players a chance to swing through the city like Spider-Man. While it doesn’t offer as much as a true VR game, for a free game, I honestly couldn’t ask for more.

Overall, Ghost of Tsushima offers a beautiful and engaging experience, taking full advantage of its serene setting and gorgeous set pieces. Combat offers plenty of freedom and can be both intense and incredibly violent in some moments. It’s definitely outside of the box for Sucker Punch, but the gamble seems to have paid off
