Cerealkillerz's Reviews

Sep 22, 2022

Ron Gilbert and Dave Grossman, the spiritual fathers of Guybrush Threepwood, are back, and you can feel it in every fiber of Return to Monkey Island. Hilarious situations, clever dialogue, memorable characters, beginner-friendly gameplay, and a fresh graphic style that may not be to everyone's taste bring the game series back to where it belongs: at the top of the point-and-click games. This game is definitely more than just pure nostalgia!

8.6 / 10.0 - Metal: Hellsinger
Sep 15, 2022

Metal: Hellsinger may be one of the best straightfoward ego-shooters in recent times because of its awesome soundtrack. Buyers get a metal album with several big metal singers in addition to a basic, fun and fast-paced shooter. The only things missing in this exceptional trip to hell are puzzles, secrets and a little bit more variety. Metalheads who like ego-shooter games and shooter fans who don't hate metal should play the demo, at the very least. If someone is really into both, this game is pretty much a must buy.

7.4 / 10.0 - Saints Row
Aug 22, 2022

Saints Row wants to return to the old open-world days, but forgets to take along current practices such as mission design or visuals. Entertaining, silly and charming, it is able to fill a little-occupied field in the genre. But it is not a real reboot. It's more of a scaling back of the craziness and a rehashing of old virtues. But anyone who can appreciate this will have fun in Santo Ileso for a long time.

8 / 10.0 - Soul Hackers 2
Aug 18, 2022

Overall, Soul Hackers 2 is a very good introduction to the Megami Tensei franchise. If you can enjoy the dull dungeons and don't constantly compare it to other parts of the franchise, you'll definitely have fun here and get a really good, if not great, JRPG.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is imposing, takes itself seriously and is simply fun. The story stands on its own and is therefore also very suitable for newcomers. The characters grow on you and are surprisingly realistic. There are tons of activities and completionists will again have over 100 hours to look forward to. Everyone else will enjoy what might be the best role-playing game for the Switch this year.

8.6 / 10.0 - Live A Live
Jul 21, 2022

The 2022 iteration of Live A Live shows how remakes for games from the early 90's should be done: a fresh coat of paint, a few quality of life improvments and Live A Live looks like a brand-new title that plays just as well. The story was, with a few minor drawbacks, so great that it still amazes today. It i is a love letter to old school RPGs and a recommendation for everybody who likes them.

7.5 / 10.0 - Disgaea 6 Complete
Jun 24, 2022

Disgaea 6 Complete is not a bad game by any means. It has everything that made the series successful for fans, with even more accessibility. Everything is bigger and more expansive, which causes it to distract from what should be the real fun. The auto-battles are great for busy gamers who can't invest 10 hours to grind, but also take away a lot of the motivation. Story and characters are unfortunately the weakest aspects of the series for me, which is why I can only recommend the game to die-hard fans. For everyone else, there is a demo.

If you talked about Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes as the new star in the hack and slay genre, you wouldn't be that far off. The game depth that people have been waiting for a long time is possible this time through new strategic options. On top of that you get a great alternative story with known faces of the series. Gameplay-wise you lose a lot of that mentioned game depth because of the immense amount of missions and also through the lack of real graphical improvements over older games.

Mario Strikers - Battle League Football has entertaining core gameplay with less chaos than its predecessors, focusing more on skill than sheer luck. Sadly it severely lacks in content. Especially the single player has too few unlocks and customization options to keep players busy in the long run. The presentation is solid but after a while noticeably lacks in variety. Nevertheless, we can recommend the game for intense offline multiplayer sessions for up top eight (4on4) players at once.

A gaming series as old as LEGO video games has to reshape some of its mechanics to stay relevant. LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga did a formidable with that and therefore has become the new gold standard for all games of its kind. The experience is only troubled by the ubiquitous little puzzle games, which all feel the same and fill the vast space of the galaxy far far away...

With Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Nintendo is giving one of its most iconic heroes finally a 3D adventure. This convinces visually and playfully along the entire length and knows how to motivate with numerous secrets. It doesn't quite measure up to the likes of Super Mario and Link, but Kirby definitely doesn't have to hide from them anymore. In summary, a successful comeback that knows how to entertain young and old alike.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is a great overall package for fans of the originals as well as fighting games and has aged wonderfully. You get a lot of content through the many included DLC, the complete story and wonderfully elaborated gameplay. Sure, the graphics could have been turned up a bit more and the missing rollback netcode will anger some veterans. Nevertheless, for the price, you can do little wrong here and can buy without hesitation.

8.9 / 10.0 - Tunic
Mar 16, 2022

Don't be fooled by Tunic's cute packaging: the game is quite demanding in terms of combat. When it comes to the quality of the puzzles, the game is on the same level as the platform classic FEZ. But the biggest selling point remains the mysteries that motivate you to solve another puzzle or find a collectible over and over again. An absolute recipe for success!

8.1 / 10.0 - WWE 2K22
Mar 15, 2022

WWE 2K22 is a great foundation and gets the series back on track. Due to the hiatus of 2K21 and the months of delay, the squad is no longer up to date. But apart from MyFaction, we enjoyed every mode, the graphics are impressive and there are no bugs or creepy glitches in sight. Wrestling fans go for it, the rest only play the showcase mode with Rey Mysterio.

The Cruel King and the Great Hero is more a fairy tale than a game about young Yuu and her way of becoming a hero. The bookish fairy tale atmosphere gets enhanced through sweet graphics, handdrawn art and a great fitting soundtrack. Even though the turn based RPG gameplay is nothing new and to some degree even somewhat boring the game shines in the story department. The emotional side of things after the story picks up steam motivates to play through even grindy and tedious walking sections with too many random battles. If you like a good story that goes to the heart this sugary

9.2 / 10.0 - Triangle Strategy
Mar 3, 2022

Triangle Strategy is an impressive example how to implement mechanics of famous videogames into modern settings and expand on them in a great way. Challenging fights, loveable characters and an exciting story, with even more twists in new game+. A must have for fans of the genre.

7 / 10.0 - Chocobo GP
Mar 3, 2022

In principle, Chocobo GP is good. Thanks to the charming story mode but sadly the low amount of different tracks and mediocre balancing and driving experience doesn't deliver an alternative to games like Mario Kart.

9.1 / 10.0 - Gran Turismo 7
Mar 2, 2022

Let's make it short and simple: Gran Turismo 7 is amazing. It looks superb, plays differently with every car in a realistic way and keeps the failure of Gran Turismo Sport way behind it. If you are even slightly interested in racing simulations, there is no way around Gran Turismo 7

9.5 / 10.0 - Elden Ring
Feb 23, 2022

Elden Ring surpasses all expectations, eliminates all doubts that we had and surprises more than any other soulsborne game so far. If you can live with rare repetitive bossfights and enemy appearances due to the open world design, you'll get the most extensive and exciting game FromSoftware has created so far.

You notice immediately that Horizon Forbidden West massively builds upon the first game and offers a lot more of machine models and side activities. The Gameplay stays excellent, only the story takes a lot of time to gain momentum. Forbidden West is still a sequel how most fans would've wanted it to be.
