Life is XboxHomepage
I have a thing with niche games and Ace Combat is a fine example for that, previous entries kinda went a little down spiral but Ace Combat 7 Skies Unknown brings the franchise back where it belongs, high in the air leaving competition far behind. I couldn’t have been more happy how this game turned out. So “sortie” to your nearest game shop or the Xbox Store and buy this fantastic game!
Playground Games has the best racing developers and might even be, or are the best development team in the world. Forza Horizon 4 is a must have game for all Xbox One gamers, it is a genre-defying, console-defying and industry-defying game. I have no other words for it, this game is a monumental treasure for gamers.
F1 2018 is simply the best released racing game so far in 2018, the physics are on spot, the gameplay is fast and fun and the licensing is awesome for Formule fans. Codemasters made a fantastic racing experience that other developers can use as a benchmark.
While not as complicated as some titles in the genre, this game can keep you occupied for a very long time. Trainiacs should not hesitate to get on board with this game. If you’re not big on trains or this specific setting, I would probably still recommend it if you are in Tycoon type games.
Visually the game is unique and something you have to see for yourself, the gameplay, sound and atmosphere are all really good. It is not Zoink who should be happy that EA took them for the EA Originals label, but EA should be happy that the Swedish developer wanted to bring Fe on the Originals label.
Making a game part time after work and on weekends shows how passionate you are about it, I highly respect the two developers from DYE (and Aeon Command) for that. Sadly enough, DYE has a few negatives that can’t be overlooked, speedrunners and challenging platformer fans will likely enjoy the game but it is hard to recommend for other players, even for the low €5 price point. That said, want to support small teams or just try the game? Go ahead, it is one of the cheaper games on the Xbox Store.
Fantastic sound and visuals but the most important thing was a little forgotten, Gameplay. While Pinstripe is surely a game I can recommend to play, the potential was astonishing and Armor Games didn’t reach that high level. One thing is for sure though, I won’t easily forget Mr. Pinstripe.. what a haunting character!
With easy and fun gameplay, M2H brought us a party game suited for all ages. It offers local and online multiplayer and a good amount of content for the asking price. It has some small issues, but you will surely ignore them. The colorful island will suck you in and put your friendship at test with greedy and chaotic minigames. Your gaming nights have just got even better with Marooners!
With all this simplicity, N++ is a masterpiece in its genre: I can’t remember any another platformer that’s so challenging without being unfair to you. It has that ‘just one more level’ feeling that shall keep you busy for months or, at least, visiting it at least once a day. If you’ve never tried this game before, now you’ll have the chance to enjoy one of the most challenging and engaging platformer ever made. Now grab your copy of the game and follow your way to become the ultimate ninja master.
Marvel vs Capcom Infinite’s Infinity Stones powered gameplay is truly remarkable, gamers will absolutely love the fast and highly controllable battle engine. Not all is great, it is a big shame that the visuals look undercooked and that the presentation is extremely dull.
The Lego Ninjago Movie Video Game (whew!) is a fun game that is well worth your time if you enjoyed the previous Lego titles. Personally, I wish they had based it on the series and not the new movie, both look and lore-wise. However, any fan of the Lego Ninjago universe should definitely check this one out.
