Overall, the game is enjoyable when you don’t encounter the game breaking bugs which more than often happens and it can be frustrating when they do. Even in the current patch when I tried to update the game, those bugs have still not been quelled. I hope that in the future that they can fix the PlayStation port because I feel like they did not really give that much attention to it and just focused their resources more on the PC release.
So is Splatoon 2’s first ever paid DLC worth the $20? Heck, yeah! Not only are you given the missions, but finishing even just the main story is worth it. It’s nice to see the Off the Hook team in action for once. Splatoon 2’s Octo Expansion really feels like it’s what Splatoon 2’s main campaign should have been.
Its great for those who are really into collecting and experiencing different vehicle types, but aside from that, it’s not a game that’ll keep you coming back for more. The teams at Ivory Tower need to release some major updates and events if they want to keep this game afloat. Until then, The Crew 2 just barely chugs along.
Super Bomberman R is a good game. It’s not that great, but it’s good enough to let me play through all the levels in story mode and a couple of matches with people I know. What’s really great is how many new characters are being added to the playable roster after all these months, with the latest being Solid Snake from the Metal Gear Solid series. Playstation even gets an additional Ratchet and his trusty robot sidekick Clank.
Runbow is an annoying, and frustrating game to play yet fun, exciting, and draws you in to do better. It’s great to play with more players and challenge them to do the highest score and be on top. Good for playing together with friends and family in get-togethers or in gatherings.
If you are the kind of gamer who appreciates destruction – beautifully done destruction, this game will satisfy. Hands down. If you are expecting to have an epic storyline involving a superior military force going up against a ragtag group of rebels, I’m sorry. You are better off searching somewhere else. Other than that. it’s a very fun game that is accessible to plenty of gamers.
Overall, the game provides a very refreshing take on action/exploration genre. The variety it gives and the many places you can travel provides enough entertainment to keep you playing for hours. The story is definitely not it’s strongest aspect but it does make up for it in terms of gameplay. The puzzles were also entertaining for the most part but they can get repetitive along the way. The reason why I say this is because it’s as basic as collecting three stones to unlock a door and then defeat the monster from within that door. Although there are segments where the game gets creative with how you obtain these stones.
Sadly, this is a hard pass for players who covet the older Breaker games. The number of series on offer is a limiting factor and a far cry from the options offered in past games. For anyone who is looking for a fresh take on the series, this is it. I certainly hope that these rough beginnings will lead to better games in the future.
LEGO The Incredibles is just a fun game to play for kids and nostalgic adults. It’s a lot spoiler-ish, but I think they really wanted to follow the story of the recent movie anyway. It’s a good one playthrough game for me though as an adult gamer.
Like the first game, Yarnys explore a hub world (this time a Lighthouse) and enter pictures to play a level. There are seven story levels in total, each within 20-ish minutes. Additional challenge levels open up once you finish the main campaign. Oh, and it’s also done by about five hours or so.
Frontier showed that they can do a lot more than just roller coaster theme park games. It’s amazing to know how studios push themselves to give out the best experience to players. Setting aside the game’s performance since a future patch can fix it and it’s not entirely game breaking, Jurassic World Evolution never fails to amaze me when it comes to its variety of dinosaurs, deep gameplay mechanics, and incredible visuals. It’s a Jurassic Park builder you never want to miss.
Unforeseen Incidents is a cut above the rest when it comes to presentation. The artstyle is striking and instantly memorable. The music and sound effects fit the game in every aspect. There is something to be said about the game’s slight humor and pop culture references. It is amusing to say the least. Harper Pendrell may not have the goofy charm and the 4th wall breaking powers of Guybrush Threepwood. He does, however, do a damn good job at voicing his thoughts out loud. Which is more than I can ask of this part-time electrician and part-time world saver.
A game that’s built with charm and an amazing concept disappoint when it is plagued with bugs that many will have to tolerate while waiting for an update. And other than this setback, I had found no majorly negative aspect to say about Moonlighter. It is beautiful and a game that’s worth a cent, if only it gave more time to work out its kinks.
A Legend Reborn is a safe entry to the beat-em-up genre. It’s pretty basic but the writing is phenomenal. It’s also safe to say people might get offended with some of its humor. Not to mention the whole game is an apology letter for Nintendo Switch owners who purchased last year’s NBA Playgrounds before an online update was released. And in my opinion, this is the best way to play the game – for free.
