While Turok: Dinosaur Hunter doesn’t have long-term value like, say Anthem or The Division 2, it’s a fun throwback that will remind people of the classic days of gaming. It still plays like a champ and is a lot of fun to play.
Tales of Vesperia still holds up pretty well even in 2019, despite having some annoyances that we’ve now become accustomed to not having to deal with. The fixed camera when in certain areas can make finding semi-hidden items a chore or damn near impossible depending on where it’s at. We’re too used to a freely rotating camera and it feels very dated not having that as an option.
As a franchise reboot, Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don’t Dry isn’t bad, but it feels like a lot of wasted opportunities. Larry fans and adventure gamers will certainly have fun (a lot more than they had with the mini-game filled spinoffs, at least), but this game seems unlikely to enter the pantheon of classic adventure games.
If you’re looking for a hack-and-slash game, Darksiders III is definitely one to check out minus the flaws the game comes along with. The team from Gunfire Games really outdid themselves reviving the Darksiders franchise with this third addition to the series.
