Black Red Gaming's Reviews
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order isn't the best Souls-like on the market, but it's the best entry point for newcomers. The game has a great balance between a challenge and a power fantasy, and it blends all of its inspirations well to create a package worth checking out.
Remnant: From the Ashes is a game that wears its inspirations on its sleeve while at the same time being unique. The story falls flat and bosses rely too heavily on common enemies, but this game is still a blast to play and something I can get a lot of hours out of.
Black Ops 4 is the biggest change to the formula in recent Call of Duty history, and in large part is for the better. Blackout is a suitable replacement for the single player campaign, zombies has seen meaningful changes to its meta-game, and multiplayer is more of the same great thing.
Deathloop is a highlight of 2021 releases and a great time loop adventure with solid combat abilities, a gripping story with fun characters, and smart systems that bypass some of the restrictions of its narrative form. There are some issues with the game in regards to the ending, enemies, and how hand-holding the game can be, but I think the game’s competent blend of inspirations can make some of those points easy to forget.
This isn't going to be a new game for most, but Ghost of Tsushima is the best checkbox open-world game to-date. While it struggles with some story issues, the combat, world, activities, and characters are incredible, and this game's beauty is like no other.
Hitman 3 is another one of those in the best way possible. It wraps up the World of Assassination trilogy nicely by keeping to what makes the series great while also diving deeper into the story. Now is the best time to visit or revisit this trilogy, and the future is bright for IO Interactive.
