Kentucky Route Zero feels breathtakingly original. For something this powerful to exist in any medium would be a triumph. But for it to exist now, as an interactive narrative drawn with striking visuals, meaningful choices, and moving music, feels more like a miracle.

Journey to the Savage Planet finds greatness from the gameplay design in its DNA and its laid-back atmosphere, hitting the marks in these areas thanks to a smartly smaller scope.

All in all, Dragon Ball Z Kakarot is a pretty impressive title. It's not something you'd call as Game of the Year, or the best Dragon Ball game ever made, however, it is one of the best recreations of the Dragon Ball Z series we could ever get.

7 / 10 - Planet Zoo
Dec 19, 2019

Planet Zoo is a highly ambitious venture. It is very fun but it has its downsides like any other simulation game. Some of the systems prohibit a simple, fun experience, others are minor issues that can be fixed easily. But the fact that they haven't been fixed yet is infuriating. It is gorgeous when it comes to looks but most of the part, it overcomplicates itself with pointless systems. The terrible optimization somewhat adds to the negative feeling and that is what ruins it for me.

Despite having quite a few flaws, the game still stands out in the RPG genre, with the game's writing being instrumental in getting it there.

For all of the delightful combat, fun puzzles, and great narrative moments, Fallen Order is still marred by derivative action, frustrating navigation, and technical issues that prevent it from taking its place alongside Jedi Outcast and Knights of the Old Republic as one of the all-time great Star Wars games.

9 / 10 - Death Stranding
Nov 1, 2019

Death Stranding is a distorted vision of the open-world genre, pulled apart by its individual threads, deconstructed, and sewn back together in the image of its director, Hideo Kojima. It’s an astonishing, compelling and provocative experience, even if it isn’t always as exciting to play as it is to think about.

All of that has been done away with, replaced by a nauseating terrine of pointless progression mechanics, baffling interface decisions, and clunky controls, fermented in a formaldehyde cocktail of technical issues. This game is agonizingly bad.

5 / 10 - Devil's Hunt
Sep 16, 2019

By the end of Devil's Hunt, I was left disappointed in the game, but really interested in the studio. I wouldn't recommend Devil's Hunt to anyone - the gameplay is not fun, the story is decent, but the acting and delivery is messy, and the performance is an issue. The game looks alright, but you can get that from a YouTube video, no need to spend money on this. However, I would recommend that you keep an eye on Layopi Games. With a bigger budget and more time, they have the potential to churn out something special.

Despite having a decent story-line and a well-structured choice system, Man of Medan is a typical narrative experience ruined by a medley of messy controls. It does not present you with any moral dilemma, however, it may bring about horrifying premonitions. Therefore, one must tread carefully on uncharted territory and ponder whether probing deeper will have any inadvertent consequences.
