The Games Machine's Reviews

Apr 27, 2022

Another generation of the Nintendo Sports series, that once again delivers a truly enjoyable and entertaining experience. Still, the singleplayer experience could use some love.

Unscored - FIFA 21
Oct 6, 2020

There are no special technical annotations. The game flows smoothly and without any particular hitches, with an audio/video compartment virtually identical to last season.

Fortnite is always Goliath , but this time, David seems to be quite handsome .

Overcome the difficult initial impressions and Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey turns out to be a rather engaging and fun survival game.

Wasteland is the classic middle episode, capable of a captivating plot twist to the point of making it difficult to wait for the next episode.

Rules proves to be the classic central episode in which developers pull the hand brake of action to focus on details.

Great Dontnod: you gave me three hours of emotions, moral choices and boundless natural landscapes. You have characterized two protagonists in an excellent way, making them loved within half an hour.

3 / 10.0 - Real Farm
Nov 13, 2017

One of the worst "real something" ever. There's nothing good in Real Farm, a game you wouldn't neither present to your worst enemy.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a gaming experience at most mediocre, packed with all the worst practices that the videogame industry can give and completely decimated by an embarrassing level of polish. This looter shooter seems to want to squander its large budget, failing to develop its premise in a way at least remotely meaningful.

RiME is still a wonderful game, but the Switch version is a tremendous porting, that can seriously ruin an otherwise unforgettable experience. You can overlook the downgrade of the resolution, or even the lower graphic detail, but the palette is faded, the pop-in is terrible, the frame rate unstable, and all these combined can seriously discourage everyone.

4 / 10.0 - Rugby 18
Nov 24, 2017

"Terrifying" is the right word to tell something about Rugby 18. The game is very far from what actually happens on the pitch, and it's not fun at all.

4.2 / 10.0 - Spike Volleyball
Feb 20, 2019

Spike Volleyball has serious problems. We've experienced bugs, graphical glitches and poor AI every single time we played. It also lacks in options, with a really poor Career Mode.

Honestly, I feel like I can't do anything but completely pan Nightdive's efforts on Blade Runner Enhanced Edition: from a technical standpoint, the game is indefensible, with plenty of bugs, and certainly doesn't feel "Enhanced" compared to the original (luckily still available on GOG). Undoubtedly the lack of chunks of the source code and the format of the original assets did Nightdive no favors, but this is still a poor tribute to Westwood's legacy.

Gear.Club Unlimited 2 Ultimate Edition has a good Career mode, with plenty of races and events and a little bit of story, but it is far from enough to rescue its incredibly sub-par gameplay, to the point that it is uncapable of conveying any emotion. And the game doesn't fare much better graphically, with poor textures and unstable frame rates. A pity, given the resume of the developer.

4.5 / 10.0 - Realpolitiks
Feb 24, 2017

A broken game, without anything good and imbued with a tragicomic approach to international economy and politic.

Necromunda: Underhive Wars is a disappointment on all fronts, a disaster on both the technical and the gameplay side.

4.5 / 10.0 - Fade to Silence

Fade to Silence is a broken mess where even the simplest of tasks is frustrating.

4.5 / 10.0 - Vane
Jan 21, 2019

Beautiful visuals and suggestive atmospheres are not enough to save Vane, whose obscure and not always working mechanics make the player feel abandoned in a poorly conceived world.

The transposition of the Games Workshop miniature games fails to deliver a fun experience on all fronts.

4.8 / 10.0 - New Gundam Breaker
Jun 25, 2018

New Gundam Breaker had the elements to be a good game, but the technical and game design flaws drastically ruin all its potential.
