8 / 10.0 - Lightmatter
Apr 22, 2020

If you want four hours of fun puzzles based around manipulating light and dispersing killer shadows, then you really can’t go wrong with Lightmatter.

If you like the premise, then you’ll probably still find some things to enjoy about the game. Just know that Creature in the Well is short and runs out of content and mechanics fairly early on.

It is a shame that so much time had to be wasted in Midgar, and that Final Fantasy VII Remake couldn’t be just a remake. There was room to improve upon for the original, but that is not what Tetsuya Nomura wanted to do. He was more interested in leaving his stain on what is Square Enix’s most important game ever they made.

3 / 10.0 - Element: Space
Apr 15, 2020

If Element Space worked as intended, it would be a fairly bland but otherwise playable tactical RPG. You know, one of those games that you might pick up because its 75% off on Steam. A game that you wouldn’t quite call “good,” but it isn’t so bad that you’d go through the trouble of asking Father Gaben for a refund. Unfortunately, “doesn’t work as intended” is the definition of “normal” for Element Space.

Eclipse: Edge of Light isn’t going to win any awards for its individual parts. Put together though, these parts make for an entertaining story, and an experience that’s essential for any PSVR user. It’s also a fantastic jumping in point for VR gaming in general, being uncomplicated, and straight up fun to play.

6 / 10.0 - Bleeding Edge
Apr 11, 2020

Even if you like the character designs or core gameplay, there just isn’t enough in the game to keep most people playing long term. You can already see this from the Steam numbers. I suspect that Bleeding Edge will soon become 2020’s LawBreakers, Gigantic, or Battleborn at this rate.

Regardless of how it came to be, Shinsekai is absolutely worth your time. For its price, it is a decently lengthy adventure with indelible alien vistas and unique 2D gameplay that relies on realistic physics to navigate.

6 / 10.0 - Resident Evil 3
Apr 3, 2020

This is an enjoyable single-player adventure with some impressive set-pieces and beautiful cutscenes. There are even some butt-clenching moments that are genuinely exhilarating, but the overall package is much to meager. If this was a Resident Evil movie, it would easily be the best one.

7 / 10.0 - Bright Memory
Apr 1, 2020

There is a lot to like in Bright Memory, and I can’t help but wonder how fantastic it could be as an eight or ten hour experience with a coherent storyline and some extra polish. Hopefully the next game will deliver a more complete package, whenever that might be.

Lots small details and progress, that build up over time into something greater. If you’re looking for a challenge or an epic quest, you won’t find it here. If you want a way to chill out, and build something you can take pride in (albeit, once), then Tom Nook has the perfect package for you.
