SpiderHeck can absolutely bring out the competitive spirit in people. But its natural charm lies in providing laughs when the chaos lets loose and somebody swings right into a laser sword or accidentally blows up a chunk of the map. It would benefit from a bit more variety in game modes and content, but as it stands it offers a fun and unique spin on the couch brawler genre.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero is a solid entry into the Legend of Heroes series. It has superb sound design, art, and storytelling. It has a really good detective oriented main character that pays off quite well in the end.
Steelrising offers a unique take on the French Revolutionas you assume the role of the Aegis hacking and slashing her way through a Paris besieged by an army of Automatons. While its developer, Spiders, does offer a unique twist on the Souls-like formula by tweaking the stamina mechanic and a focused narrative, it's clearly a game made on a budget. I personally had a lot of fun but I must admit that it has some issues like broken audio, textures and objects popping in and out, repetitive environments and it just becomes too easy by the end of the game.
Expanding the modes, adding new characters, more customization options, and improved netcode would do wonders for All-Star Battle R. As it stands, this game is still a love letter to JoJo and worth picking up for fans of the franchise or anyone with fighting game chops looking to branch out.
Overall, The Last of Us Part 1 is a stellar remake for those who want to play the game for the first time or haven't revisited it for a while. The graphics are gorgeous, the story is still thoroughly entertaining, and the Accessibility Options on offer are superb. Unfortunately, the repetitive combat and lack of multiplayer options do make the package less optimal for those who don't want to spend full price on The Last of Us Part 1.
Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate Definitive Edition is exactly what it claims. A definitive version of Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate that had been upgraded and put into a single purchase. It still has the problems of Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate but it is still the peak of Musou gameplay with content, characters and music.
Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered is a high-point of not just superhero video games, but all of gaming. The story, the mechanics, the depth of New York City, it's a beautiful thing. So if you can't play it on PS4/PS5, definitely try it on PC.
If you are a seasonal fan of Madden, you will feel like Madden NFL 23 is a step in the right direction with new features to experience and updates to preexisting game modes and features. At the end of the day, this game is meant to appeal to football lovers who want to have the most realistic NFL experience.
Two Point Campus is built on the strong foundations of its predecessor. When it works it's a great game! It's a shame that the experience is currently impacted by distracting bugs, that stop it from being on par with Two Point Hospital. Never the less one you'll liking enjoy if you played Hospital.
