If you can look past the repetitiveness of the missions, you can play right through the story line and get yourself up to speed on the story of Attack on Titan without having to watch all of the anime, and while killing titans may get a bit old, swinging through the city and mastering the ODM never does.
If the formula of the first game didn’t appeal to you then nothing that Dragon Quest Builders 2 does will change your mind, the game is in every respect better than its predecessor, but doesn’t change its form in any way to appease those scorned by it before.
And as for Conan Unconquered? It’s passable. A pastiche. A painting of a game that lacks all the vim and vigour in the brushstrokes that may have offered some semblance of excitement or, heaven forbid, enough enthusiasm to bring Conan himself back to life.
With Cricket ’19, Big Ant has once again released a high-quality cricket title that is likely to keep fans invested until the next version. Sadly it is held back by a lack of polish in areas that have always shown a lack of polish, so the hope for these problems ever being fixed is fading. But that being said this is a great game and well worth your time with improvements both big and small over the previous version.
My Friend Pedro excels at making you feel extremely good at being violent. Its slow-mo gunplay is among the best in any game. However, the disappointing delivery of its utterly bananas premise and a lack of variety dulls the thrill during longer play sessions.
The latest iteration of the Everybody’s Golf franchise is a prime case of quality over quantity. What is there is excellent, but what isn’t, could have elevated this game, and potentially even the franchise, to higher levels than it has ever previously reached.
Unfortunately what I got was a bit of hit and miss, where some aspects of the game are great, some are not so great and others just left me scratching my head. Let me just say that PixArk has the potential to be a great game, it just needs a bit more time in the oven.
If you’re absolutely over Diablo 3 but still hankering for some fantasy action, then Chaosbane will more than happily scratch that itch. Even as I started to tire of certain aspects, I found it hard to put down. Indeed, my coffee went cold several times, which is as good an endorsement as I can probably give!
