GamingBolt's Reviews

Nov 13, 2013

Characters may fall flat and lack a sense of personality but this isn't enough to turn people away. Beautiful settings, an engaging atmosphere, and the focus on delivering a great experience is where Deadfall Adventures is at its strongest.

Resogun is an excellent shoot 'em up and the best launch title for the PS4. If you have the system, you need to get it.

Nov 25, 2013

Knack is a great game that is full of nostalgia and old school gameplay. However its mediocre story telling and main character's voice acting stop it from achieving perfection.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is a daring step forward for the franchise, and the best Zelda game in a decade.

Dec 2, 2013

Killer Instinct is a beautiful, fun and entertaining fighting game. But the lack of fighters and arcade mode is sorely disappointing.

Killzone: Shadow Fall is not only a technical showcase for the PlayStation 4, but it also manages to provide a intriguing single player campaign backed up by a strong multiplayer component. However by playing it safe, Guerrilla Games have taken the franchise a few steps back.

Play your part in protecting the Roman Empire as legionnaire Marius Titus, a man with a thirst for revenge and a penchant for particularly gory execution moves. Ryse Son of Rome could have been a great game but its repetitive gameplay holds it back from greatness.

5 / 10.0 - Crimson Dragon
Dec 6, 2013

Crimson Dragon had the potential to be a AAA digital title for the Xbox One. Instead, it fails to deliver solid gameplay and it's also riddled with technical issues that drag the experience further down.

6 / 10.0 - Shadow Warrior 2
Jan 1, 2014

Decidedly old-school but feeling a bit uninspired, Shadow Warrior 2 is fun for some straightforward co-op action. It could have been more but what's there is good enough.

Simply put, Max is a fantastic indie game and a far better purchase than many of the others currently available for download. In Curse of Brotherhood, Xbox One has a fun, good-looking platformer at a budget price. Highly recommended.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is a tough sell for those who have already embarked on Lara's adventure, but those who have never played it will find a lot to like here, and the numerous upgrades make this the best version available to those without access to a gaming PC.

Jan 28, 2014

At a lower price, it would have been a good game worthy of recommendation, but at this price, stay away- there's better things on the Wii U eShop that deserve your attention anyway.
