Neo Cab is a great interactive adventure that emphasizes on forming relationships. Every decision feels important in Neo Cab and will impact the story and your relationship with others. Although the main campaign is only about 3 hours, Neo Cab is a great game to replay and see how different conversations and actions can affect the main story. Neo Cab’s memorable characters and futuristic vibe makes it a very fun and unique experience. Although some minor technical issues and limited soundtrack hurt the overall polish of the game, Neo Cab’s great story, characters, and emotion managing mechanic keep it fun. It also gives a realistic view of what society could become if it continues to prioritize technology over everything else.
Overland is a fun and challenging strategy game. Although the procedural generation can at some points be unfair, I mostly enjoyed the challenge of stepping into a new area full of creepy creatures. The lack of story and clunky controls did hurt the overall experience, but the inclusion of achievements, time limits and the option to restart a level were nice additions to add even more challenge or take some away. It’s not for everyone, but Overland appeals to a group of players that are looking for a real challenge.
Overall I enjoyed my time with Beholder 2. The story and sometimes gruesome settings showed the reality of an all-knowing and all-powerful totalitarian government. The emphasis on choice and sheer number of quests made me weigh all my options on how I wanted my story to unravel. Aside for some occasional annoyances in grinding for cash, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a deep and somber narrative that’s combined with thoughtful gameplay mechanics.
