This was clearly a labour of love. The team creating the Elder Scrolls Online sure love the world of Tamriel, and it shows when they’re able to create a great chapter that stands on its own merit; even when it’s standing on the foundations of the fifth game in the series. Greymoor has a short but exhilarating story that left me ready for what’s to come in the future. Western Skyrim is gorgeous and a joy to explore. It gothic setting is a refreshing change in ESO, and if what’s to come is as good as this, I’ll happily find myself coming back to enjoy what’s on offer.
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX’s gameplay is tedious and bland. Its repetitive nature shows itself off very early on and doesn’t as the game goes on. A visually appealing Pokémon title held back by its lack of variety, the unique storytelling and visuals aren’t enough to take away from the failings of Rescue Team DX.
Ultimately Borderlands 3 is a mixed bag. It’s like going to visit my family at Christmas; you jump in the car, visiting those same people that you love dearly and enjoy seeing but it’s still the same long journey and your Dad is telling the same old jokes that make your skin crawl.
Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers is a step above anything that has come before it. The perfect blend of captivating gameplay and a truly memorable story that rivals those heralded by fans for decades. It’s time to step out of the shadows and become what you must Final Fantasy XIV; the best MMORPG in the world.
