Playing this kind of adaptation is nostalgic on its own right. I have enjoyed the Universe it created in-game with those infamous film locations but it did nothing to the lore, getting to know more of the characters or outside of its original storyline. I guess I would've wanted a kind of surprise that only Players will experience since they are using another platform in getting to know this wonderful film. Playing as one of the characters is supposedly enjoyable but I find it this game lacks the excitement it is supposed to draw from their audience.
If you are a player who appreciates great storytelling with minimal hours of commitment, this game is for you. It may not be enjoyable though for players who are seeking hardcore action-adventure gameplay. Story loops may eventually exist but the graphics, colors, voice and sound quality really makes up for it. Regrettably, the game has a lot of potential, it has a lot of feels to it. I know a lot of people out there – gamer or not can relate to the emotions that Kay portrays. I think that end credit scene is a sneak peek on what’s to come which is really exciting since this can be developed to so much more. I am really looking forward to it.
FFXIV: Shadowbringers is a tale that shows us how much we need the Darkness, how balance must be kept in check, how vulnerable we all are, and how we can’t stand alone. We need others to guide us and help us push through all the things that would get in our way. This expansion is the amalgamation of what we could ever want in an adventure and what we could probably ever want in a Final Fantasy game. So come hither future Warrior of Darkness, join us in our epic and dark tale of friendship, hope, despair, wild and crazy banter, death-defying battles, and become one of the next Shadowbringers!
Overall, I enjoyed Crash Team Racing. Racing karts can be brutal, but fun. Adventure modes boss battles feel a tad bit unfair though. As each boss seems to have a gimmick that no ordinary kart racer usually has. Take Ripper Roo for example, who’s extremely fast and has unlimited TNT.
Judgment may not be the next Yakuza game but it almost feels like one. Judgment definitely captures the sense of being a detective and whether it be dealing with an adultery case, a case of poltergeist, or even just taking photos of missing nekos, Judgment makes you feel like you're a bonafide private eye who answers the call of the helpless whether there's yen in it or not. So beware evil doers and lost items and pets for the time has come for Judgment!
The Sinking City always entails a cycle and maybe that just really how it is but still, its disappointment is the major mood when I got to that last part. What is the point of having choices then? Overall, this game has potential and my advice would be to wait until a few patches get released and maybe by then this game gets the remedy it needs.
Overall, the game is geared towards a child-friendly audience with their colorful world, simple looking character designs and easy to follow storyline. However, in doing so the story lacks any actual depth and by using long and unskippable narratives, the gameplay aspect is defeated.
Team Sonic Racing is a game full of potential but played it too safe and didn’t go full throttle to reach the desired finish line it set out to at first. The game still has a chance of improvement either via updates or through DLC but as for now, it feels like it’s on the low end of a fast track with bumps on the side.
A Plague Tale: Innocence is a linear game which balances stealth, escort mission, and puzzles perfectly. To top it all off, the story is phenomenal. Though the character animations may sometimes look stiff and robotic, the overall presentation makes up for these minor nitpicks.
EDF is probably never going to reach the heights of the mainstream, and that’s all right. It trying to be different from other games is exactly what makes it appealing to certain gamers. For the time being, being aware of its strengths and weaknesses are good enough for now.
No matter where you want to hang your hat, be it single player mode, casual multiplayer, or the ultra-competitive mode, you will have a great return for your investment. It’s really fun, no matter what you do, except if you are a Completionist who likes to 100% the whole game… it is going to be a daunting task, no doubt about it.
This game still has ways to go before it can properly say that it’s a complete game. Though the foundation is there. Ultimately, it’s up to the game’s community to continue supporting it. And the developers to further improve upon it.
While the glitches and bugs aren’t game-breaking and don’t really affect the entire experience, the only gripe I have with the game is how repetitive the objectives are in its campaign mode. In the end, World War Z is still a great spiritual successor of Left 4 Dead and it packs a lot of fun when you play it with your friends.
Sekiro has other features and functions that are best left for you to discover. It’s definitely a very challenging game and not a game that you’d get to complete in a day or two. Unless of course, you’re already that good. But it is definitely a fun game to get yourself immersed in, even if you feel like throwing the controller.
