Make no mistake: while it certainly doesn't redefine the genre, Feudal Alloy is an incredibly strong second title from Attu Games. It abides by genre conventions with a style that is all its own, nearly flawless gameplay, and an injection of strategy sorely missing from most Metroidvanias.
18 years down the line (almost to the day) and Onimusha has returned to store shelves. While its comeback could have been better refined, this is a serviceable remaster with enough bells and whistles to entice veterans and newcomers alike.
May be the very best Dynasty Warriors game out of twenty years of choices and now you can take pseudo-historical one-man armies with you on the train. Dangerously close to being the perfect Warrior.
The ending to the City That Never Sleeps trilogy doesn’t quite deliver as well as it wants to, being more focussed on a sequel than is is good for it. However, it has the same Spider-Man charm you know and love — and strong character moments — so it certainly won’t hurt to play this DLC if you’ve played the others.
Insurgency: Sandstorm blends a fast pace and simple objective-based gameplay with a low time-to-kill, authentically modeled weapons and gear and an immersive, brutal and visceral style of combat to create the perfect intersection of competitive and tactical online shooters. Some graphical hiccups and at-times poor character models only slightly mar an otherwise fantastic experience.
A new opening act that feels a bit out of place from the entire narrative and leaves a strange taste in your mouth. Still, it is fun and broadens the horizons of the Greek-centric world. I just wished it wasn't so unsatisfying.
For veteran players, just experiencing the original games one more time in a brand new way is enough to put a smile on your face and reawakening that inner child. Playing along with a newcomer or first-timer makes it even more inviting and enjoyable, reminding you why you fell with love with Pocket Monsters in the first place.
