First Light is a DLC that has everything working for it: standalone status, great character, great story, and amazing gameplay. Expanding on a game that was made to feel fun first, it does everything right and then some. Building on what the series already established, and even fixing some of the less desirable issues, inFAMOUS First Light manages to feel familiar yet also like a new game. If this is any indication of what to expect from Sucker Punch, I am definitely looking forward to what comes out of this studio next
Even with the occasional hiccups Saints Row: Gat out of Hell manages to be a completely worthwhile experience. The first new city since Saints Row: The Third, great characters, hilarious writing, awesome weapons, and a much more refined focus on gameplay all lend to the overall sense of fun that permeates every aspect of the game.
On the surface Dying Light may be nothing more than your average run-of-the-mill zombie game complete with predictable story and tons of flesh eating monstrosities. But, beneath the very pretty surface lies a game with some excellent ideas that, when combined with some tried and true mechanics, create one of the best zombie games in recent years
Even with its lack of that graphical "wow" factor, Grim Fandango Remastered is able to become a classic yet again, this time for a whole new generation of gamers. Whether you're a returning fan, or someone new to the adventure genre, Grim Fandango is a must-play experience.
It's clear to see that the team at Tango Gameworks had some solid ideas for how inject a bit more of that eeriness that helped flesh out The Evil Within, unfortunately the game gets in the way of itself. The Assignment is a change of course that shows the developers are willing to deliver a new experience to fans, but the cost may have been a bit too high in the end.
All of this is wrapped up in a package that unites everything into that classic arcade experience the developers were aiming for when making Jamestown Plus. The amount of credits you have flashing at the bottom of the screen, your score rising above the millions, you and your friends dashing across the screen, and so many other little elements help make Jamestown Plus the game arcade-goers dreamed of back in the 90s.
