At the core, Spheroids is a fun game that everyone can play and I really believe that developer Eclipse has the talent to make something great but Spheroids only shows fragments of that talent. Too many things break the fun part of the game, resulting in a fun experience albeit some rough mediocre parts.
Yes, Ubisoft did it again. Another brand new IP that is good enough to hopefully find a big enough audience. You have to respect the publisher for bringing so many brand new experiences, something that other big publishers fail to do. For Honor redefines the hack and slash genre with a tactical combat system and addictive online play.
Zombie Vikings is one tremendous game, one of the main pillars is the visual design and perfectly made characters. Everything is overflown by incredible humor, making it a funny and fun experience for all players. Zombie Vikings is a must have game for co-op players, you simply need it in your game collection!
Is Riptide GP: Renegade perfect? Hell no, but it has been a long time since I had so much fun with an arcade racing game. Gameplay and fun is the main reason why the game has such a high rating, the visual richness, high customization options and many multiplayer options are others reasons why Renegade is insanely good. Vector Unit has made me forget Hydro Thunder Hurricane and that alone was an extraordinary task.
The developers can happily drink some Dwarven ale, We Are The Dwarves is a one-of-a-kind game that provides gamers with some great visuals and addictive and varied gameplay. I’m willing to forgive all the bad sections because they truly made something special.
While I applaud the effort considering this was made by a one man studio, I feel the game is lacking in many ways. The procedural generation is interesting, but has limited effect on the actual overall experience. If only the combat or pathfinding was a little more interesting this game could have offered genuine replay value. Unfortunately that is not the case. Unless you spend your days wishing all 3D survival horror games looked and played like they did in the 90s, but without an actual story, this game does not have much to offer in terms of entertainment value.
Error screen, error screen and error screen, that’s almost everything that you’ll see while playing Verdun. If you manage to finally get into a game you’ll face some annoying bugs that totally destroy any kind of immersion or fun. Seriously, Verdun is a massive failure on Xbox.
Blackwood Crossing is a really interesting and rather unique game that is seriously hampered by its lack of content, both in physical size and playing time. Still, the production quality for an indie studio is undeniable and mostly due to the emotive tale I do feel that the whole is greater than just the sum of its parts.
Despite a few flaws Mass Effect: Andromeda is still a wonderful science fiction story with some memorable moments. It is without a doubt one of the best single player experiences on Xbox One. That said, it would be a mistake to overlook the online mode because the frantic shootings with friends is a great thing to do!
The two developers from Mad Fellows have a lovely quote on their website: Purveyors of the finest video games. It totally fits them, Aaero is a fantastic genre-defining game with a wonderful licensed soundtrack. I wish I could demand Xbox gamers to buy it, each and every gamer should play Aaero. Oh… and Mad Fellows, prepare for a lot of I want Aaero 2 requests!
Fundamentally Yooka-Laylee is a good game, but it’s a shame that Playtonic failed to bring an undeniable great game. The potential was extremely high but they left me a little disappointed. Wonky controls, bad camera work, annoying voice dialogue and issues with performance make Yooka-Laylee nothing more than an average game. It could have been so much more …
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 lacks a level of polish that you could expect at this price. You can’t help but notice some issues that really need to patched. However, stopping at that would take away from the enjoyable sniping there is to be found in the game. If you enjoy this genre, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 can still offer many hours of single player excitement, as long as you can get past the technical issues.
