Fun Factor's Reviews

Feb 27, 2024

Brothers is a good remake of an overlooked gem of the 7th generation of consoles, boasting a graphical overhaul that completely transforms some of the areas, and some new little secrets make it worth the play for both new and old players alike, that said, some technical problems were a bummer.

While the graphical improvements are subtle, the new modes are worth the price of admission alone, especially No Return, a Roguelike mode that's absurdly fun, although it could use a bit more permanent progression to spice up later runs.

Like a Dragon Gaiden is a fun but mostly inconsequential entry in the series. The shorter main campaign actually makes it more enjoyable as the expansive side content makes up for it. As a fan, I enjoyed the game but it's pretty clear that its main objective is just to keep us invested on the upcoming Infinite Wealth.

God of War Ragnarok Valhalla is a delightful expansion that not only enhances the combat experience it also deepens Kratos' development as he faces both past and future. Being free to download makes the expansion a no-brainer recommendation.

8 / 10.0 - Super Mario RPG
Dec 10, 2023

Super Mario RPG is a delightful little remake that adds a lot of quality of life updates to the combat especially, that remains as fun as ever. Despite some dated aspects that strangely remain, and a choppy framerate at points it's still a great experience for all ages.

9 / 10.0 - Alan Wake 2
Dec 10, 2023

When discussing video games as works of art, Alan Wake 2 is one of those works that will pop into my mind immediately. It's a brilliant piece of entertainment with a unforgettable narrative and setting and one of the best games of what has been an astounding year in 2023.

6.5 / 10.0 - Persona 5 Tactica
Nov 27, 2023

Persona 5 Tactica has a fun and dynamic gameplay loop, and a story with potential but all that ends up undermined by repetition and an excessive amount of dialogue that has little to no substance.

After finishing the campaign in a few hours, I've felt that Unleashed 2 didn't have much to offer. The track builder is a strong feature for the creative type players, and overall the game is solid, even if a bit too simple. If you can grab it at a discount, it's a good Christmas gift for children who like the toy brand, but other than that, I can't recommend this game at its full price.

6.5 / 10.0 - Hellboy Web of Wyrd
Nov 9, 2023

Hellboy Web of Wyrd is a flawed game, from countless visual bugs to a clunky dodge, but the thing is that despite all this, the combat and overall package makes it one of the more fun titles I've played this year.

Super Mario Bros. Wonder is an incredible return to form to the 2D format, having coupled the usual great platforming gameplay with some of the most creative ideas in the genre in years, although the badge system was a bit undercooked it's still a step in the right direction.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is a worthy entry in the series, boasting an amazing narrative and fantastic traversal options that truly immerse the player in the world Insomniac has created, although some setbacks, namely in the stealth department bring the game down a bit.

5 / 10.0 - Sonic Superstars
Oct 25, 2023

Sonic Superstars starts off well enough, but the more you play, the more cracks it starts to show. The quality of the levels just falls off after a while, and the bosses are unbelievably frustrating. For its current price tag, it's impossible for me to recommend this game to anyone.

8.5 / 10.0 - Ghostrunner 2
Oct 23, 2023

Ghostrunner II is a frenetic and tremendously enjoyable FPS that builds upon everything that made its predecessor great and introduces some amazing mechanics that keep it all satisfying, and above all fun, although the motorcycle sections and some minor bugs dragged the experience a little bit it's still an easy recommendation for fans of the genre.

Resident Evil 4: Separate Ways is a fun expansion, having us control Ada and her numerous gadgets, that also comes at a reduced price, making it an easy recommendation for those who want more RE4.

6 / 10.0 - Starfield
Sep 22, 2023

I've got mixed feelings towards Starfield. Even though I found the game entertaining throughout my playthrough, it's so far from being a memorable experience. The combat is decent enough, the plot is mostly forgettable and the characters are just... bland. It doesn't help that you spent a good chunk of your time fast traveling around.

Armored Core VI Fires of Rubicon is another amazing game by From Software that makes controlling these mechs a treat, especially in combat where there's countless options on offer, making the replay value really high although I wish there was more incentive to explore the different areas we come across.

7.5 / 10.0 - Viewfinder
Jul 28, 2023

Viewfinder explores an interesting concept that greatly uses perspective to build entertaining puzzles that do some really interesting things, but in the end I left the experience with the feeling that more could have been done, and some of the new mechanics introduced towards the end don't really get to shine.

7.5 / 10.0 - Final Fantasy XVI
Jul 14, 2023

Final Fantasy XVI certainly excels in spectacle, boasting superb boss fights with a great combat system and narrative, but the quieter moments outside of those big scenes end up mostly uninteresting and boring with RPG elements that feel mostly inconsequential.

6 / 10.0 - Atomic Heart
Jul 11, 2023

While I struggled with defining Atomic Heart's identity, I think I can assume a few things about the game. Narratively, it wants to be comical even with its tragedy, but the main plot bets on the drama behind the main character's past and their personal relationships; as well as predictable and empty plot twists. Despite the comparisons with Bioshock, it doesn't step too close to the atmosphere or even the combat of the classic title. It tries to be itself, even though the inspirations are noticeable. Although I was enamored with the first trailers of Atomic Heart and dreamt of that "beyond Bioshock" title, with several websites reporting on development problems and the successive delays made me wary of it. In the end, I still enjoyed the game for what it offered, even after losing its charm due to its frustrations and disappointments.

9 / 10.0 - Street Fighter 6
Jun 18, 2023

Street Fighter 6 is a masterclass in the fighting game genre, with exciting new mechanics and characters that make the fights even more fun, even though the story mode drags a bit too much in the later half, hurting an otherwise great addition to the series.
