Victory Point's Reviews
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.
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.
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.
Technical issues aside, I really enjoyed the first episode of Batman. I think what they’re doing with both the Batman and Bruce Wayne sections of the game are engaging, and I like the new mechanics that were added for the Batman sections.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
