Victory Point's Reviews
Rogue Troopers Redux is a well-made remaster, it offers a look back to how we use to play games and shows the way cover mechanics evolved
Battle Chasers: Nightwar is a fun experience it packs in a lot of content and replayability.
“With the exclusion of the X-men, the game feels like it’s missing some of the charm it once had”
Destiny 2 feels like the game we were promised with the original Destiny and more. The story and the world are interesting and can keep players entertained for hours.
NHL 18 is a great overall hockey game that improves on everything that NHL 17 brought to the rink. Certain features in franchise mode don't come together into a complete unified experience, but it's night and day improvement from last year.
Pillars of Eternity is a great addition to the RPG genre while adding its own uniqueness. With the world looking gorgeous, and the story is top notch, with a wide cast of interesting characters it's hard to imagine this game as not being a classic but the console port does come with its flaws just like the PC version.
Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle is that it's a fantastic entry into the Mario franchise and offers a new way of playing a Mario based game with its unique perspective on the strategic gameplay and charming world that has great music.
The good doesn’t stop there. The new entry into the series wouldn’t be anything without a legitimate sense of place. Luckily, the game’s soundtrack provides that, and so much more.
F1 2017 is a near flawless F1 game, and easily the best yet. Codemasters have managed to fit in enough options that the game is playable for people of all skill levels, all the while keeping it a true F1 simulator for those hardcore fans that want an unforgiving experience; and it’s all bundled in a beautifully presented package with tonnes of replayability.
Madden 18 is one of the most ambitious installments that EA sports have put out with Longshot being introduced into the fold. While I think there is plenty of room to improve in Longshot, I am excited to see Devin Wade's NFL career in the second installment. If you're franchise mode fan then you will probably be a bit disappointed, but Madden Ultimate Team is well worth your time investment.
Cities: Skylines is a great pick up and play for anyone who enjoys creative gameplay, especially for those strategically minded. It feels like this game still has so much future potential, let’s hope that Colossal Order are just laying the foundations for future content.
Agents of Mayhem had a lot to live up to with a built franchise like Saints Row, but I feel the spinoff accomplishes its goal and more. The open world was a fun world to play with and the story is very charming and enjoyable. The only real flaw with the game is it can drop in frame rates and there were a few bugs that required me to restart the game but none of that was a deal breaker.
With the driving mechanics being difficult to control and the artificial intelligence being cheap it can be hard to get into. The game modes are mostly not worth checking out with the exception of battle mode and sadly the online multiplayer is broken with hardly any players and poor servers
It’s no doubt that Tyranny’s replay value is through the roof. Undergoing everything Tyranny has to offer in one playthrough isn’t probable – the possibilities appear endless.
wish I had better news, but the third episode of Batman: The Telltale series might be its worst. The story is so far off the one narrow (and interesting) path, that at this point I'm more interested to see how they right the ship than in the story itself.
While Shadow Warrior 2 doesn't feature a complex economy system and the whole world seems to rely on a single blacksmith and two tiny shops, there's somehow plenty of wares to go through.
Continued technical issues and a stumble in story hold episode two of Telltale's latest series from being as good as it's debut predecessor. That being said, if you're a fan of the caped crusader, there are still some interesting threads dangling that are worth seeing through to the next episode.
N++ offers players endless possibilities and challenges. Whether the gold-thirsty ninja is being blown apart by homicidal machines or falling to his doom, there is rarely a dull moment in this fast-paced environment. Though it may not be a game to necessarily binge on, it is a hell of a lot of fun.
Madden NFL 17 gives fans what they have been asking for and more, including an expanded Franchise Mode and smarter more accurate AI. This is a love letter to any die-hard football fan.The gameplay is solid and more accessible. Sports games have never come this close to making you feel like you were running on the field.
Headlander continues to demonstrate that simplicity isn’t necessarily a bad thing with its upgrade system. While most games in the genre have you picking up dozens of different powers to get to new areas, Headlander only has a few, making many areas accessible early and eliminating the need for lots of backtracking.
