Azfar Rayan's Reviews
It is difficult to suggest Postal 4: No Regerts, even to the most diehard fans of this series, due to so many technical issues with the game. It fails to lift the bar in any aspect where it might be deemed a playable game.
Despite being 100% linear, the hack-and-slash features in Valkyrie Elysium make it seem like it belongs in the souls genre, regardless of the game's action RPG label. The game suffers clear production restrictions even though there is nothing fundamentally wrong or terrible with to describe it. The problem is that the entire experience is just tiresome. Valkyrie Elysium delivers an inconsistent experience with its mix of good gameplay, uninspiring plot, and level design. This remake is an admirable effort at a fresh start, but it won't go down in history as a classic.
Despite having an interesting theme, Stray fails to be a good game. It's fun, particularly during the exploration periods when you can observe the neon-lit world through the eyes of a cat and scale skyscrapers and other seemingly unreachable locations. It falls flat when it tries to use exciting action to excuse the fact that it is a video game; the fighting is as uninspiring as it is pointless. It may be brief, but there is no compelling reason for it to be expanded upon.
Diablo Immortal is a pleasant surprise for the most part. The franchise spirit inspired me to keep pushing forward until I got to the endgame material, where it became apparent that the whole thing had been a ploy to lure me into a cruel business scheme. Aside from the few flaws with the PC version, an overabundance of microtransactions and user interface distract the game's overall impression. This ordeal has been a roller coaster ride for me, and I'm glad to be out of it.
Shadow Warrior 3 felt like a significant step down from the excellent Shadow Warrior 2, and it's a tremendous disappointment and a squandered chance to improve the franchise and get it out of its rut. Even when things go well, Lo Wang's irritating attitude makes it difficult to take pleasure in them. He is constantly pounding our ears with silly one-liners and awful acting, and even the bosses aren't fun to confront.
Steelrising's atmosphere and plot may have made it the Bloodborne-inspired Soulslike that fans of From Software's masterwork have been hoping for. Unfortunately, Spiders only managed to deliver an average game, and its problematic gameplay makes it hard to recommend even to enthusiasts of the genre. There are elements that may have made it a great RPG in the vein of Souls, but the game's mechanics and presentation aren't polished enough to keep players engaged.
Soulstice, developed by Reply Game Studios, is perhaps the studio’s most audacious project to date. A well-made game that does its best is nonetheless far below the genre’s best. Despite its fresh take on fighting and the dual blue and red field mechanism introduced in the game’s sister pair, Soulstice still seems like a carbon copy of other superior hack-and-slash titles. If these issues are addressed, Soulstice might stand out as a pleasant surprise and become an enjoyable game.
Wanted: Dead's challenging settings, unique approach to battle, and visual presentation will attract some interest, but they certainly won't be adequate to hold most players' interest for very long. Its gameplay mechanism and core plot shortcomings made it difficult to enjoy as a whole. If you, however, like hack and slash, decapitating enemies, and are willing to die often to do it, then Wanted: Dead is the game for you.
It's unlikely that Outriders Worldslayer will sway the opinions of those not already captivated by this third-person looter shooter. There is enough fun in the fierce front-foot fighting, but many of the game's fundamental problems are still apparent. Although Worldslayer's amount of content may not be sufficient to warrant the asking price, the game is undeniably enjoyable.
If you're searching for a short chuckle or like ridiculous scenarios, House Party delivers both with its witty language and adult-oriented subject matter, making it a fun experience overall. If, on the other hand, you're hoping for an experience that encompasses more than simply drugs, females, and liquor, then you shouldn't play this game.
Sniper Elite 5 falls short of its primary influence, but it also falls within its own merits. Its restricted level design, weak features, and perplexing A.I. make it a terrible stealth game only momentarily improved by its repetitive sniper tactics. Sniper Elite's essential components of tact and stealth remain, but the game's balancing flaws have been addressed, allowing players to concentrate on the game's primary appeal: enjoyment. Fun exists in the game, but it's not where you want it.
Despite its many flaws, Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong somewhat lives up to its central promise: to provide players with a wealth of decision-making opportunities and the repercussions and outcomes of those decisions. You will always feel compelled to give it a go, even though it will require you to endure some of its less elegant aspects.
Even though Salt and Sacrifice is a good game, many adjustments have been made that take away from the game's unique character while favoring more formulaic gameplay. It's a game that, in general, is enjoyable and entertaining, but its accomplishments are weighed down by several innovations that stay instead of contributing, giving the feeling that it has gone a step backward.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarök isn't a bad game, but it isn't particularly fantastic either. You can still have a good time with Dawn of Ragnarök if you're still craving Valhalla after hours of gameplay. Svartalfheim is a gorgeous place to wander around, although it has nothing to do with Assassin's Creed.
This first title from developer Thinking Stars is a mixed bag. Some of it works, while others don't. It's as though the game is only the beginning of something greater, like an anime pilot or a prequel to a novel. Its stunning 2.5D pixel graphics and deceptive depth get obscured by its overly complicated story and unpredictable course of Ann's journey.
Although certain issues with the gameplay and controls detract from the overall experience, the game still remains enjoyable. FATAL FRAME: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse's unique combat, compelling story, and memorable cast of characters ensure that the game will appeal to new and veteran players. While newcomers to the Fatal Frame series may not admire its gameplay, long-time series fans will simply adore it.
Deliver Us Mars is meant to be a good game, with a good quantity of puzzles, a stunning vision of the future and a good narrative to unfold were all there, despite the grim subject matter. There was so much potential in the game, but KeokeN Interactive has failed to capitalize on it.
Bloodhunt provides a unique experience, which is something other games of this genre cannot say about themselves. Although cross-platform play remains uneven versus more proficient PC players and worries over balancing and map variation continue, it is still one of the more refreshing Battle Royale attempts in quite some time. If the imbalance continues, chances of success are slim, given the dwindling interest in Battle Royale games.
Matchpoint - Tennis Championships has all the makings of becoming a spectacular tennis game in a given time. Even though the AI lacks depth, the gameplay is still entertaining and captivating. It has the potential to be a much more captivating game in future updates or releases if all the issues are addressed to improve the overall experience. It's been years since we've had a tennis game that came this close to being recognized as potential. Perhaps the lack of effort on the overall delivery makes it seem like the game took a step backward. Torus Games and Kalypso Media still deserve much credit for giving fans the hope for a great tennis simulator.
ONE PIECE ODYSSEY does an excellent job of transporting players back in time for epic fights, while beginners may struggle to keep up with the story's rapid pace from the very start. Although it shows promise, the game falls short as a quality role-playing game.
