Ultimately, it’s a shame that A Tale of Paper doesn’t achieve greater heights. It has the components to be a great game, but the final product just isn’t. The well developed environments and catchy melodies don’t do enough to save the game from the rest of its downfalls.
When all is said and done, Nexomon: Extinction is an enjoyable experience. At times it suffers from having time wasting fetch quests and backtracking, but makes up for it with refined gameplay. Combined with being an inexpensive and non-Nintendo exclusive alternative to Pokémon: Sword and Shield, this might be the best way for a lot of gamers to scratch that itch.
Feather is a short and sweet game that is enjoyable if not purely for its mellowness. The art, music, and visual variety heighten the experience to make it even more enjoyable. Unfortunately, the game doesn’t provide a lot of replayability, bringing its value into question.
In conclusion, Cold Symmetry has achieved greatness with Mortal Shell. The game is by no means perfect and it is fairly brief. But for such a small team and a new IP, the result is impressive. This is strongly recommended for all fans of the Souls genre and it shows that innovation still exists within the cluttered space.
Ultimately, Cuphead was a masterpiece when it originally released years ago and it still holds that position today. And with the upcoming “The Delicious Last Course” DLC set to add another playable character, levels, and bosses, more greatness could be on the horizon. The difficulty might rule some out, but this is a game that should be experienced by all.
Overall, CrossCode does the overwhelming majority of things right. However, the game definitely drags in certain areas (especially the dungeons) and has frustrating platforming elements, which mar the experience. But anyone who wants a heavy dose of nostalgia that’s finished off with a smooth and refined finish should look no further than this gem of a game.
Even after playing through plenty of rogues, Fury Unleashed stands out. With its bright and varied visuals, unique combination of level design and storytelling, and polished modernized mechanics, this one will keep you coming back for more. So grab a partner or go it alone, and unleash some fury!
