The egregious monetization can't be overlooked in this game. Originally I was being lenient and choosing to simply ignore it but after playing the game for 10 hours it very quickly became clear this game is only interested in putting up as many obstacles as possible and selling you the solution to these problems. While it's true that a lot of these items can be earned in-game, they make it very clear that paying is the better option. Combine that with the simple and repetitive nature of the game and I can't honestly recommend this. As it's free though you have nothing to lose by trying it for yourself, just understand though what type of game you are getting yourself into.
This game is a blast and suitable for all ages, the more people you have the greater the chaos you can create so the more laughs you'll have. There is variety in the different objects the game asks you to deliver, starting off simple and moving into crazy very quickly. You'll be delivering to the top of a blimp that flies around the island you are on via a helicopter in no time!
While I did enjoy my time with this game, I don't think I will be revisiting it in its current state. If you have a hankering for an old school turn-based strategy game then you'll probably enjoy this. For everyone else though I think you may be a tad overwhelmed and disappointed with what's on offer here.
Darksiders Genesis translates everything from its 3rd person predecessors perfectly, I have zero complaints about the gameplay itself. The additional core system and the myriad of upgrades ensures boredom never sets in and I highly recommend anyone who's got an even passing interest in this gives it a go.
I'm disappointed with this game, it has perfectly kept the spirit of the original Shenmue but in doing so has not brought any of the new innovations of the industry. It hasn't advanced its own formula and has instead opted to create the game as I imagine it was first designed back in the early 2000s. If they make a Shenmue 4 I sincerely hope they take more risks and don't just make a carbon copy of what they've done before.
Revelations is a great first expansion for AOW: Planetfall. What it adds is well polished and allows for more variety in your playstyle. My only wish is that the Heritors or the Forgotten were a new faction instead of a tech/NPC respectively.
Chikara Action Arcade Wrestling is a game you pick up and play for a few hours in short bursts that you have fun with but spend hours if not days fine tuning your custom creations. The game really wants you to just have fun with it and not take it too seriously. In that aspect I think it's safe to say they succeeded.
