People always say that there is no such thing a perfect score, but Uncharted 4 deserves nothing short of a full 10/10. The game is completely flawless. There are always going to be opinions that vary, but when it comes down to faulting Uncharted 4, there is nothing you can say. So much care and attention has been put into making this game absolutely perfect. It is very clear to see that not a single corner has been cut with the development of this game. The standard of quality is incredibly high and consistent from start to finish. I have never given a game a 10/10 before and I am generally quite the nit picker when it comes to game reviews, but i don't think i can pick out a single thing to fault about Uncharted 4. The game is just perfect.
The wait for Breath of the Wild to release was a long one but turned out to be worth every minute. The transition to an open world experience turned out to be one of the best moves the series could have made. Exploring Hyrule is such an incredibly rewarding experience. The funny little side quests to the loot-filled dungeons. There will always be a secret of some kind to find when you are exploring. The story is the same as always but somehow feels fresh. Building up the strength to face Gannon is one of the best adventures you will ever experience in a video game.
The jump to Norse mythology was a bold change that has paid off. The new gods and new setting really shake things up. The changes to the combat system are a little clunky at first, but you get the hang of them after a while. The switch of focus from Kratos mindlessly killing everything to a relationship between a man and his son is a new step for the franchise and is the most enjoyable part of the game. From start to finish, you will find more and more things that impress you about this game. Everything is built to perfection. Whether you like this kind of game or not, there no denying that God of War is a beautiful masterpiece.
It's hard to think of where Ellie's story could go having played the first game. Once you get stuck in, you're going to take an emotional beating. The 25-hour long story is massive and it cuts absolutely no corners. The story just keeps giving and giving. The stealth and combat will get your blood pumping and give you some moments you will not forget. When it comes to value for money, you aren't going to get a game that is more worthy of a purchase.
White Night is a simple, scary ghost story and it’s absolutely fantastic. Horror stories have lost their way over the years, White Night takes a simple approach to a classic idea and it works perfectly. The game has a real charm that I have not found in another game for quite some time. It’s ascetically pleasing which enhances the experience so much. Whether you like horror games or not, I highly suggest you face the fear and play this game. It’s a welcome break from the norm and is such an enjoyable treat to play.
As far as DLC goes, First Light is a fantastic piece of work. If you enjoyed Second Son then this game is a must buy. The experience is short, but overall I was very happy with the purchase. With such a big shortage of good quality games on the consoles at the moment, First Light is a welcome addition to the games library.
With an incredible level of visual quality, responsive controls and a kick ass lineup of monsters, it's not to have fun. Everything has been executed in a way that brings the original game back to life for a new generation. This reboot could not have been executed any better. The game succeeded in being everything that it should have and was done with such a high level of polish that it was a huge pleasure to play.
For me this game was a massively unexpected experience that I have a long bus journey to thank. I absolutely loved Virtues Last Reward and I would say that you should not judge this book by it's cover. Virtues Last Reward is an amazing puzzle game that has an incredible story that really sucked me in. I found it hard to put the Vita down as I really wanted to know what was going to happen next.
The story of the Finch family is not just unique, but it is told so incredibly well that you can't help but get sucked into it. You finish with so many questions you would love to ask the odd people that lived in this unusual house. The game feels a little too short, but every minute of gameplay that is there is an absolute pleasure to experience. What Remains of Edith Finch is a story that really stands out and is one that you will want to experience for yourself.
Destiny 2 is an incredibly sturdy game. It is very clear that It was built by a talented and experienced team who put a lot of effort into making sure the quality was high. Blasting through caves full of robots with your friends is a hell of a lot of fun. There is a lot to make you want to come back to the game. You will find yourself sinking many hours into this game and not even realising it. The push to always find better loot becomes an addiction. The content shortage is a bit of a downer, but this will improve over time as more DLC is released to expand the variety of quests that we can play. For the moment, the core game has quite a lot to keep you going and give you more than your moneys worth of entertainment. It isn't often we see a game launch with this level of quality. Bungie has really outdone themselves with this game. If you have any doubts about purchasing this game, don't! This game is worth every penny and is a lot of fun to play, you won't regret purchasing it.
