Ultimately, Industries is a solid, but subtle addition to Cities: Skylines. It is a great choice for anyone looking to freshen up their now three-and-a-half-year-old game, and at the same time keeps itself understated enough where it is not a requirement for your enjoyment. This feels like a DLC package aimed at those long-term fans who have stuck with the title from the beginning, and it does help to make the experience that much more “yours”, so to speak. If you have been playing this game for a while and have already picked up the shinier DLC packages, then Industries is very much for you.
When it comes to the regular mode’s menu it does offer the slick and clean interface that shows each track in a line of fives and hovering over one would preview the song a bit of dance moves you’d be expected to do. Sorting has a few options from the JD 2019’s tracks, alphabetical orders, number of dancers and difficulty. Going through on the left-hand side is where the home tab lies as well as the playlists, song list, search bar and profile card.
Pilot Sports came in with a great idea… relive an old classic but it fell short to hit its mark. For a current generation game, it doesn’t feel worth the outrageous price of $29.99 for the PlayStation 4 version. It borrowed so much on nostalgia to pick itself up that it never really tried to stray away from the original and bring something new to the table with more aircrafts to learn and master. The difficulty hurdles during singleplayer progression, however, give for a rewarding feeling as you set your eyes to be the top of the leaderboards yet it comes off as more of a “buzz off” to newcomers and casual players alike.
Both games are tough as nails with Rondo of the Blood being extremely challenging and Symphony of the Night being a masterpiece of 2D side scrolling adventuring. Konami could have included a range of optional extras to the Requiem package such as concept artwork or some developer diaries or commentary but overall, given the price point and what you’re getting, PS4 gamers should be pleased with the title. Two of the greatest 2D side scrolling adventures have been brought back for the modern era and speed-runners, retro game fans and those that love challenges will find themselves enjoying both these games for hours on end.
In conclusion, Moonlighter is a spectacular compromise between procedural roguelike elements and progression mechanics, leading to a wonderful mix which is satisfying on so many levels. It’s a great chance to indulge your inner looter whilst also giving the opportunity to puzzle out prices, and it’s perfectly at home on the Switch. It’s also proof that having a distinct length and a definite end-point isn’t always a bad thing. Yes, you won’t get hundreds of hours from this, but it’s high-quality and I love it.
Verdict time! I can give this an 8/10. Yeah, why not. It was a good start to the second installment of the Life is Strange franchise and I am actually looking very optimistic about this game. Hopefully, it will not only keep up with this pace, but get even better. Life is strange 1 had this downfall of starting out strong and finishing as a tired horse … I really hope this isn’t the case for Life is Strange 2.
Despite this hitch, Surf ‘n’ Turf is easy to recommend to Overcooked fans as long as you are up to the challenge. If you have 3 or more players in your squad, you may find that you are good to go. If you are playing with a single friend or partner, however, be ready for what will inevitably turn out to be a difficult, but rewarding, time.
For my first time playing a Taiko no Tatsujin game, I wouldn’t say I did too badly having played both the Switch and PS4 version. The PlayStation 4 version sadly is hard to get hold of physically in the UK and doesn’t come with a bundle which is disappointing and even worse is that the Switch USB drum doesn’t work with it either. So having to buy the game and drum from abroad and have them imported is quite a problem personally.
Over recent years the DC Universe has had some rough patches when it comes to their films but this isn’t the case for the comics and games. Lego DC has had some fantastic heavy hitters in the Lego game series and has offered yet another fun pack game into the mix. Sure it had the issues with the camera angles (which seems to be present in every Lego game) and the lack of free roam in terms of map size but these were the only two things I could point out as its faults.
Overall, it’s a game that borrows heavily on nostalgia and caters to kids and their parents who’ve watched the show or just want to play with their kids. Considering there is no online mode, they have no choice but to invite friends over or play with the family. It’s a clone of a game that i’ll hide in the name of Kario Mart but falls short and failed to introduce new mechanics that could improve the genre. Motion controls is a bit of a hit or miss like auto-accelerate. It’s probably there for kids but not advisable for drifting as it’s clunky and at times hard to initiate.
