Even with its children’s-level-complexity, it is a respectable creation and if you still have doubts whether to try the game or not, just check out its trailers and videos. Most or even all of what’s the game is like and its story is in there. No plot twists.
There are aspects of The Suicide of Rachel Foster that exceed expectations; the quality of it’s narrative and audio design, voice-acting performances… It’s truly at the highest level. However, when you compare this to the rest of the game you’re reminded that there are a few aspects of it that are painfully average.
If you’re a fan of the previous Aquanox games or if you enjoy underwater sub-simulators, then yeah, you’ll probably have a good time and I would suggest picking it up. If you prefer your games more action-packed and fast-paced like I do, then I would probably suggest you play something else.
The life of an unpaid intern is pretty gruesome already. Add hordes of goblins you have to defeat, a nagging project manager, coworkers with clashing personalities, and a very odd Amazon-esque parent company. In Going Under, there is a lot to do, and a lot to smash. Overall, the game has it’s problems as well as plenty of strengths that make you want to come back over and over again. For just $20, there is enough to do to make it worthwhile.
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 is truly a breathtaking game. The realism and depth that this game has managed to achieve is second to none, but it once again needs to be stated: this isn’t a game in the traditional sense; there is no story or action or objectives.
At the end of the day, I think that’s what SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE wants you to feel. We shouldn’t really feel relaxed while playing, but that’s what today’s society is used to. There is violence all around us, both in the virtual world and reality. We’ve become so desensitised to it all that we use virtual images of violence to escape the real ones.
Some of the missions are a tad infuriating, and the game design can become quite frustrating. Those COGs are very pesty and move quite silently sometimes, making a siege of a drillship a tedious mission. Yet that is a part of the game’s ingenuity. Volcanoids’ vast and takes the survival genre down a different path while challenging the player throughout.
While this game is a great adventure, it can become a bit of a grind. Working to get the loot to create the next level of weapons feels repetitive at times. Even working the store can be a bit of a bore after the 10th day in a row of manning the shop. Thankfully an upgrade comes in that lets the items be sold through an assistant for a percentage of the profits.
