Call Of Duty has made a commendable return to the franchise’s former roots in what could be considered the best entry this generation with Call Of Duty: WWII. Players are given an array of choice in the multiplayer and a solid single-player outing. The reformatted multiplayer creates something special that will hopefully carry on into future iterations. Much like the campaign, the Nazi Zombie mode introduces a much more cinematic experience that adds to the enjoyment. The release of Call Of Duty: WWII has solidified Call Of Duty as the go-to multiplayer game once again in a sea of new ideas and competition.
Gran Turismo Sport is a departure from the usual Polyphony Digital affair and presents a heavy focus on the online, one of the few aspects that is fully realized and delivers so far. The single player is what was damaged the most by the developer’s shift in priority. That is not to say it isn’t a decent game. Online players will enjoy it for months to come, especially if they plan on taking on championships and tournaments. For the rest, the tacked on single player will leave them disappointed, especially since provides a wonderful driving simulation experience. For a full retail priced game, it is hard to justify the purchase unless you know right away that you are going to be dedicated to the online mode. That is the only area wherein you will see the title’s true potential. For now, we are left hoping that a more traditional Gran Turismo installment manages to find its way on to the PlayStation 4 in the near future.
Destiny 2 is the culmination of two years of Bungie learning what players want, enjoy, and love about the world of Destiny. It is the evolution of the team’s previous shortcomings and an improvement upon what is already working. It is everything that makes Destiny great, but better in nearly every way. A game of this quality is teetering on the edge of perfection and it’s likely Bungie’s ongoing commitment will soon find a way to give it that final push.
Volition brought their trademark flair to their first non-Saints Row game in awhile and it definitely shows in Agents of Mayhem. If you want an over the top, explosion filled, machismo spouting, and action packed single player, then you are in for a wild ride. Agents of Mayhem brings not only this, but oh-so much more for fans of Volition’s patented brand of gameplay and humor.
The Surge is a fun and engaging action-RPG for those wanting punishment in a brightly colored futuristic environment. It changes up the formula used by other titles in its genre and for the better. Variety is the spice of life, and that spice is peppered throughout The Surge, from its varied weapons or the many severed limbs and heads of your enemies. Deck 13 has crafted a memorable and engaging title that makes me wish that they never stop doing what they are good at, hardcore, controller smashing games that allows the player to feel accomplished at every enemy that falls to their feet.
Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition doesn’t change the game a whole lot. Which is pretty much what we expected, although it is still fun and entertaining. If you want a mindless bloody, expletive filled game that is great when you are tired of Call Of Duty or sports titles, than this is the game for you.
