Lee Garbutt's Reviews

I've been a writer and video producer since around 2009, writing for various outlets. I also have my own YouTube channel - Pug Hoof Gaming (http://www.youtube.com/pughoofgaming). I'm a firm believer that games should be a fun and enjoyable endeavour, which is why I cannot stand those that are negative about them.

10 / 10.0 - Bayonetta 2
Oct 12, 2014

An absolutely phenomenal sequel, and one of the best games the Wii U has to offer.

It rewards those of us who know A Link to the Past’s version of Hyrule like the back of our hand, but makes enough concessions for those who didn’t play the original the first time around. It may be a shorter and less challenging adventure than many would expect for a modern Zelda game, but when that journey is so incredibly satisfying, you won’t feel short changed. I can’t think of a better way to end a brilliant year for the Nintendo 3DS than by playing one of the best games released on the system so far.

So enjoyable that I'm going to start it all over again. This is an essential purchase for all Wii U owners who love the JRPG genre.

This game is in no way a revolution of what's come before, but that doesn't matter one bit - the mechanics are still as solid as they always were, the humour still makes my face ache from smiling, and not once did it ever outstay its welcome.

Even with the focus on multiplayer, this is an adventure that is just as enjoyable for lone heroes, especially for those who fancy a challenge.

An excellent port of a much-loved Wii classic.

9 / 10.0 - Bravely Default
Nov 25, 2013

It’s a brave (geddit?) move on Square-Enix’s part to not stamp Bravely Default with a more popular title, because ironically, Bravely Default is one of the best Final Fantasies in years. Taking the very best of 8/16-bit entries of the series, and bringing them up to date with some beautiful graphics, clever features and engaging gameplay, this is a must for someone looking for a more traditional JRPG. On a system that has been lacking some meaty RPG action, this is a superb combination of old school gameplay with modern day additions that makes for an adventure you don’t want to miss.

From grind-happy obsessives, to those whose love for the genre might have lapsed, and are looking for something to bring them back, this a must-buy game for fans of Bravely Default, as well as anyone who loves JRPGs.

A refreshing take on the extended fiction of the series, and the most stealthy to date.

8 / 10.0 - Bayonetta
Sep 18, 2014

Fast and frantic, Bayonetta is still a quality action game. The visuals may have aged somewhat, and the difficulty may be hard as nails, but this is the definitive version of a game that feels strangely at home on a Nintendo console. A welcome refresher to the upcoming sequel, that deserves to be replayed for old times' sake.
