Sick Critic's Reviews
Kingdom Hearts III a beautiful game with a heart like few other games. It does have a harder entry point than most games, but catching up is worth it. Even newcomers can jump in. Just don’t expect the game to hold your hand narratively. Kingdom Hearts III is not a perfect conclusion to the saga, but it’s pretty damn close.
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair provides plenty of fun for fans of the platform genre. The game may have some small drawbacks, but it shines in most of what it sets out to do. In a world of dozens of platformers, it manages to hold its own.
BlazBlue: Central Fiction Special Edition on Nintendo Switch is a really good game, but not without some setbacks. You won't find much activity if you're looking to play online, which is a huge bummer for gamers who aren't keen on playing with friends in person. The asking price is also a bit high, but other than that, you'll have a great time with this 2D fighting game.
Metro Exodus is worth a playthrough, even if some of its components need a little work. The game does a brilliant job of building an enticing atmosphere in its many environments while telling a compelling story. The gunplay and crafting system are interesting enough to carry you until the end, even if some of the characters aren't. It's a lengthy adventure, one that I took about a couple dozen to get through.
Pikuniku is worth your money and time. It may not be a revolutionary work of high art, but it’s definitely enjoyable. I’d recommend buying it for the Nintendo Switch so you can play it in pieces, but the PC version (which I played) is perfectly acceptable. This is a game I’m going to tell my friends about and get them to buy.
While it might not be up to the same kookiness of previous titles from SWERY, The MISSING has other reasons to make you stay, leaving you shook and heart-broken with a stop-start narrative, and an gameplay gimmick that doesn't overstay its welcome.
