The magic of Secret of Mana seems to have faded during its transition to HD assets. Beyond a graphical upgrade that will certainly not please everyone, it is especially the old rhythm of the combat and lack of difficulty that make the adventure much more bland than the original. If you played the original, I would advise not to tarnish your memories with this so-called upgrade.
Fallout 76 is a weird, broken, messy, self-contradictory game. It’s as boring as it’s exciting, as mundane as it is haunting, as uninspired as it is unique, and similar to previous games as it is different. Sometimes when the lighting, the music, and your own mood align just right, for just a fleeting moment, it feels like the Fallout game I really wish it was, but the sheer shoddy quality of the product means I would never recommend this game to anyone. Even beyond the bugs and technical issues, it’s a poorly designed, janky-as-hell game. It has all the wonky combat and gameplay of Fallout but very little of the storytelling and world-building. As a budget-priced Steam early access game released on the down low, this could have been a fun little experiment. But as a tentpole Fallout release at full price with a collector’s edition that was shown off at multiple E3 conferences, Fallout 76 is beyond unacceptable.
If you hope of a thrilling adventure with intense battles against giants with EXTINCTION, then I hope you're ready for the disappointment. The race against the clock aspect of the game really kills all the interest and the pleasure to face the giants, and with really subpar graphics and not much to do, it's difficult to justify the price range.
Rise & Shine is a visually stunning, promising game on paper, but that does everything possible to contradict with its vision. While the developers claim that it's "NOT another run’n’gun clone at all", but more of a "Think and gun" both core game mechanics and elements makes it a flawed and unoriginal experience in a lackluster package.
Dynasty Warriors 9 might have managed to reboot a franchise that has been criticized for so long to not take enough risks, but gets hurt by its unmatched technical upgrade and repetitive gameplay. It's still at the root of it a Musou like all games, regardless of its open world setting and added RPG mechanics, but its niche appeal, painful framerate drops and crude textures will probably only make the game stand out in its own genre.
