I enjoyed discovering the world in Death Stranding and although the gameplay didn’t seem ‘special’ at first, it ended up being much more complex than I initially thought. Sadly, the story does take a while to pick up, however, as soon as my confusion got untangled it became more enjoyable for me. My favourite thing about this game is the stunning environmental and character graphics which made it a joy for me to traverse through the areas, even if I was mostly simply delivering cargo. That being said, Death Stranding is an entertaining game, with an interesting premise, which I recommend to anyone who is looking for something more unique to experience.
The title ‘Lovingly Evil’ already tells you everything you need to know; Evil villains are romanceable within this inclusive dating simulator. If that’s not already enough of a reason to give this game a try, the comedy is splendid, the visuals are lovely, and I couldn’t help but complete a full playthrough in one sitting. I really appreciate light-hearted games and this one was definitely an entertaining title I couldn’t stop playing. Besides all the interesting facts for each villain, you can even participate within a variety of mini-games with your chosen love interest in order to create a stronger bond with them.
I had a blast playing through Control, I was a bad-ass woman with amazing supernatural powers. I found the theme utterly appealing and loved that the special abilities of Jesse were both used to progress within the story and defeat the enemies in various ways – which was pretty cool and exciting. Admittedly, the plot does take a while to pick up, however, everything made sense at the end, which is an accomplishment I’d say with how confusing the game started. Despite being almost constantly confused, I was invested in this game and felt determined enough into wanting to know what this game is about and why the strange things were happening.
Mythic Ocean contains an interesting premise but, ultimately, didn’t use its full potential. While it creates a stunning world, the gameplay is rather lacking and nonexistent after finding all the pages as all that’s left to do is talking. I genuinely felt like this game turned into a pure Visual Novel and it doesn’t help that that game ‘fast travelled’ me right to the Gods, removing the need to manually swim to them. However, I loved interacting with each God and getting to know them better, although that was sadly the only thing I truly enjoyed about this game as I didn’t care much for the main story.
I still cannot decide whether I love or hate Ghostrunner, however, I definitely can say that I had an enjoyable time with the game. I have to admit that this game frustrated me a lot, although that only means that I was even more delighted when I finally managed to complete a level. The fast-paced gameplay and gorgeous graphics stood out and managed to offer me a one of a kind experience. That being said, if you’re into challenging games then Ghostrunner is the game you’ve been looking for, although you’ve been warned; This game might make your blood boil.
