Lee Mehr's Reviews

His gaming history spans several console generations: N64 & NES at home while enjoying some Playstation, SEGA, and PC titles elsewhere. Being an Independent Contractor by trade (electric, plumbing, etc.) affords him more gaming luxuries today though. Reader warning: each click given to his articles only helps to inflate his Texas-sized ego. Who knows? He may become your next favorite game critic to detest. [NOTE: Reviews from VGChartz, DarkStation, & TechRaptor reflect a more wide-ranging spectrum to review scores. Although still reflecting the score closest to my personal opinion, reviews from GamingNexus reflect a scholastic value--a heavier emphasis on 7-10 scale.] [NOTE #2: All PS4 games I played were on a secondary PSN ID, not the one listed.]

Through creative world-building and earnest emotion, SEASON makes you appreciate the marvelous sights and sounds amidst a crumbling world.

6.5 / 10.0 - Wavetale
Jan 16, 2023

While Wavetale's elegant surfing/platforming foundation is engaging, choppy waters within its design & storytelling keep it from being a huge splash.

3 / 10.0 - Hello Neighbor 2
Jan 7, 2023

While it's not difficult to surpass the dreadful original, Hello Neighbor 2 too often feels satisfied with the bare minimum, while also implementing avaricious launch-day DLC elements.

5 / 10.0 - Hindsight
Jan 6, 2023

Hindsight occasionally harmonizes mechanics with meaningful themes, but the overall impression feels hollow the more I look back.

Dec 31, 2022

Sable's plethora of technical faults compels me to warn everyone about its current state on PS5, but I still sincerely hope you'll embark on The Gliding someday.

There are several reasons HOOK's freshmen title fittingly opens at a hospital: its jejune writing, vapid design, and inconsistent presentation quickly flatline any interest.

5 / 10.0 - Somerville
Dec 17, 2022

Somerville's biggest fault isn't with Jumpship utilizing Playdead’s successful template, but rather in forgetting to incorporate the pedigree alongside it.

Modestly-priced but misguided, Bloody Ties reflects a more restrictive design ethos without a worthwhile payoff.

Despite corrections making for an improved all-around package, Modern Warfare II continues the series' ongoing trend of paling in comparison to its original namesake.

Setting aside various nitpicks & critiques, Batora: Lost Haven's overarching issue is making Avril's extraordinary journey feel ordinary by the end.

Several issues gnaw away at Requiem's greater potential, but its panoply of technical and creative positives connect consistently enough to thoroughly appreciate Amicia & Hugo's rat-ical journey.

6.5 / 10.0 - Scorn
Nov 16, 2022

Ebb Software's rigid focus will immediately put off some (for fair reasons), but also earn the respect of horror fans who can stomach this grotesque world.

Kao's first expansion barely packs any punch.

Rough launch-window bugs and some design faults hinder VestGames' otherwise commendable first stab at the social deduction genre.

Echoes of the Eye’s surprising deviations wind up enhancing both the main game and its own identity.

Grounded's quirky concept and adventurous personality will win over survival genre fans, but certain design and launch-window issues shrink my enthusiasm.

Spiders' middle-market Soulslike harnesses plenty of soul and style, but several rusty gears impair its greater potential.

While there are legitimate value contentions to make about this quasi-remake, Part I earns the crown as the definitive edition of this seminal title.

4 / 10.0 - We Are OFK
Sep 20, 2022

We Are OFK's glitz and glamour can only do so much for a game so insecure about its format and inauthentic in its intent.
