Gamers FTW's Reviews
A near perfect experience with amazing characters, gameplay and environments dripping with atmosphere, Resident Evil 4 is an absolute blast throughout and this Remaster is only hampered by the awkward controls and the cutscenes for certain parts of the game. Resident Evil 4 reminds us why it is the king of the series and why it deserves the top spot.
King of Fighters 14 is rough around the edges and is certainly not a perfect game, but what it lacks in graphics and compelling story it more than makes up for in gameplay. Delivering some of the best fighting in the series to date with fresh takes on old mechanics, any fighting game fan would be missing out if they judged King of Fighters 14 by its graphical punch.
The first foray into the world of Telltale Games Batman is full of mystery, intrigue and a hard edged adult portrayal of the world. Its technical issues bring the experience down, however, this first entry its the ground running with an interesting story and gives a first episode that not only is gripping but also left me salivating for more.
All things considered, Life Is Strange is by far a worthwhile experience for anyone. Being that the first episode is up for grabs at the cost of free, it's an absolute must for any gamer. Whether or not you choose to invest in future episodes is up to you, but I for one am in.
Rise of The Tomb Raider is a very good sequel that improves a lot of the issues present in the original but doesn't completely fix them. While definitely flawed in some areas it is undeniably fun and an incredibly strong entry in the franchise.
The game has barely changed from the original release in 2009, the addition of the improved graphics and better matchmaking makes the game a lot more fun, but the repetitive nature of the gameplay, the frustrating final part of the game and the AI partner drags the experience down.
This is not the best Walking Dead adventure out there, but fans of the developer’s previous work with the franchise will not be disappointed.
Blood & Wine is a fantastic goodbye to Geralt. I loved every minute of it and can’t wait to see what CD Projekt Red have in store for the future. I’m hopeful if there’s more in The Witcher series it comes with a refined combat system. Regardless of what they do, I’m confident it will be fantastic. But as for Blood & Wine, I’m glad I was able to see Geralt’s story finish up.
Shadwen boasts some cool mechanics and can even be entertaining at times, but it never truly feels like a cohesively good game as a whole. The repetitiveness of the levels, clunky physics and sub par story only hinder what could have been a great entry into the stealth genre.
ABRACA’s charming style and enjoyable genre blending gameplay make this a very enjoyable party experience, that'll provide many exciting races. However if you’re unable to gather a group of friends or family you’re limited to a single solo mode which is fun, but won’t hold players attention for long when compared to races.
Not the best shooter in the world but far from the worst, Doom returns to gory glory by delivering a solid - if standard - story-light single-player, a forgettable multiplayer mode and a third mode which plays out like Halo world building in the bowels of hell. If you are an FPS or Doom fan , you will love it but if FPS's aren't your thing, Doom isn't going to be the game to change that.
Entertaining character interactions, the inclusion of an enemy respawn mechanic and a retro-facing aesthetic art-style offer enough to save this Metroidvania love-letter from the trappings of repetitive gameplay, an uninteresting plot and predictable enemy movements.
Star Fox Guard is an innovative title with a good deal to do and a number of possibilities for its online community. Player’s ability to multitask and stay calm under pressure is the standout factor that will really affect their overall experience. Not being able to focus on multiple things at once will easily frustrate gamers as they are quickly overwhelmed by an army bots.
Stranger of Sword City has many elements which should make it a fun dungeon crawler. However, the storyline is confusing, the battle mechanics are tricky and there are many aspects of the gameplay which aren't explained to their full making it difficult to progress through the game. Also, the addition of permadeath makes this game more frustrating than it should be.
It's taken several years for us to get a new instalment into this series that can live up to the N64 classic, but with Star Fox Zero that wait is finally over. With a new lick of paint, a vast amount of secrets to discover and solid gameplay mechanics it'll easily provides players with hours of thrilling dog fights and action packed set pieces. The new Gyrowing and Walker vehicles are fun new additions but they're thrills that quickly wear off leaving you wanting more of the fast action packed Arwing missions. Star Fox fans will surely not be disappointed with this title.
Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure is a breath of fresh air among today’s online-only titles. Besides being an awesome throwback to the golden age of couch gaming, its wacky characters and bizarre humor mix well with the pick-up-and-play controls and great level design. The novelty might wear off too soon, but you should definitely give it a go if you’re yearning to share some laughs with your friends
