Oct 20, 2022

Holy cow Batman! Gotham Knights only memorable thing is having the gut to kill Batman on screen, everything else is a mediocre experience that will make DC fans angry and disappointed.

Asterigos: Curse of the Stars uses the Souls template in a unique way that is more open to everyone. Not everything is good but my respect for this new developer is very high. At times the world is beautiful and the battles are also memorable, finding your own fighting style is also a fun activity and quite inspiring too.

87% - Trifox
Oct 13, 2022

Trifox is far better than I ever expected, Glowfish Interactive’s first original title is one that hopefully will be discovered by many gamers. Trifox has every essential part of a fun platforming game with unique mechanics. Making your own combat playstyle and finding every secret in the levels is the perfect mix between Ratchet & Clank and Crash Bandicoot. I honestly can’t wait and hope for Trifox 2.

70% - NBA 2K23
Sep 26, 2022

NBA 2K23 screams to be a LifeisXbox recommended game if you look at graphics, sound, and even gameplay but there are two negatives that drastically lower the enjoyment of players. The online performance and the constant pushing of buying virtual currency with real money give the game a very sour aftertaste.

78 / 100 - Serial Cleaners
Sep 21, 2022

You won’t be killing anyone in Serial Cleaners, only cleaning up crime scenes and making evidence disappear. Crazy how big the difference is between the first and this, visually it is a completely different game with nice-looking graphics. A nice story, fun characters and stealth-gameplay make this game a great purchase.

80 / 100 - Isonzo
Sep 20, 2022

Massive respect for Blackmill Games & M2H, who went from Verdun and Tannenberg to this excellent authentic shooter. Having this slow-paced and realistic experience on Xbox is a welcome change from all the rush-and-win shooters.

85 / 100 - Thymesia
Aug 31, 2022

Thymesia is a LifeisXbox recommended game because OverBorder Studios understands how to make a great Souls-like experience. Thymesia is an indie game with a low budget that can proudly stand together with other recent games in the genre.

70% - Shredders
Mar 16, 2022

Shredders offers a fresh new snowboarding experience, a genre that has been starving for content lately. It has some great snow to shred and a surprisingly interesting narrative presentation, but it’s a bit light on content and lacks the needed spectacle to really impress.

Omega Force… what happened here?! You come from the excellent Samurai Warriors 5 and Pirate Warriors 4 and manage to completely ruin the once great Dynasty Warriors franchise. This is an unpolished, lazy and unworthy release. Dynasty Warriors 9 in 2018 was a reason for fans to get upset and now Empires is a new disappointing blow for the loyal fanbase.

This game is full of weird parts and one of them explains exactly how I feel about The Dead Tree of Ranchiuna. Near the end, you suddenly have a cutscene about a toilet. It explains that a toilet can be a metaphor for life and that the smart thing to do would probably be to stay there for a short time. Now as with many things in this game I had no clue why this part was in it but I understood the toilet reference. As with my two hours of boring myself with this game I only wanted to flush it down the toilet and never think about it again. This is the kind of game where I am forced to finish it for review reasons. Two hours of walking, more walking, walking, some more walking. Two hours felt like an eternity, when the credits finally started to roll, I got even more depressed as there was still a short encore section. Yes, dear readers. I sacrificed my precious time for playing and writing this so you can stay far away from it.

Seeing the evolution from the OlliOlli franchise is a sight to behold. Developer Roll7 is crazy talented and understands what makes this genre fun and exciting. The new art style lifts the entire OlliOlli gameplay and the change in difficulty mechanics makes it playable for everyone.

I loved nearly every second of Shadow Man; its levels were fun to explore and the visuals looked quite stunning for a remaster! Despite the easy combat, backtracking and acceptable voice acting, Shadow Man was still a blast to go through! If you like old-school games that make you explore levels and find collectibles, this’ll for sure be something you’d really like!

63% - Vagante
Jan 26, 2022

Roguelite/like adventurers rejoice! Because Vagante cometh to us with a bag full of goodies… In the form of unlockables! And there are plenty! And variable as well. These can range from backgrounds that buff and nerf your character. Making it either easier or harder on yourself. Background music that changes up in certain biomes, to even entirely new adventurers to pick from! So, there’s plenty of stuff here for us to choose from! Huzzah!

WipeOut fans can look forward to something they will love! Gravity Chase is a more than decent experience with a nice selection of tracks and visuals.

80 / 100 - Mushroom Wars 2
Jan 14, 2022

It may grow on you, Mushroom Wars 2. Especially if you like intense online battles! I would really suggest trying this game out even if you don’t have mush room left on your storage.

There has to be a first for everything and this was my first gaming disappointment of 2022. When the only positive thing you can say about a game is about the sound I’m afraid we’re dealing with a bugger then.

I wish I could be more positive but Planet Quiz fails pretty hard to be any kind of fun.

Changing the typical slow-paced play from Monopoly into a fast-paced action brawler works surprisingly well.

Horatio Goes Snowboarding (-and Street Crossing) is a fine arcade-inspired experience for short bursts of play. It falls a bit short to become a real memorable game but that doesn’t mean you won’t have any fun from it.

Dec 22, 2021

Wavetale is a short adventure game with a focus on exploration and its story that tackles topics like greed, war and loss. what’s amazing is that it wraps it in a wholesome and inclusive package that provided me with a surprisingly lighthearted experience. If you have Stadia, check this out!
