Forever Classic Games's Reviews
Resident Evil 4 VR is a must-have for Meta Quest owners. The game plays surprisingly well on the Meta Quest 2 headset and it captures the feel of RE4 in a way that respects the original while also adding enough elements to entice players of previous versions.
I do wish that the experience found in Crisis Core Reunion was more refined and the performance on Switch could certainly be improved but this is a great way to refamiliarize oneself with Zack, Sephiroth, Aerith, and the rest of Midgar’s cast of interesting characters. That said, Reunion might be enjoyed best on PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC but it is playable on Switch.
Regardless of the criticisms I have with Chained Echoes, the fact that it was created is astounding and it is clear that the developer has a ton of love for RPGs and why they are so special. The game is unapologetically dense, making a perfect title for those that put in the extra time it takes to learn its world. This is a full-sized adventure in a classic style, making it an easy-to-recommend game for fans of the genre.
Overall, GigaBash is a fun time that is way better with the right group of friends. I wish it had a bit more substance to encourage a competitive play environment but this is a game that I will absolutely look forward to playing at conventions or parties. Anyone into Kaiju should check it out but don’t expect GigaBash to be an all-time great. However, the potential success of GigaBash could lead to a more feature-rich sequel which could become one of the coolest Kaiju games ever.
While I have my gripes with some of Lunistice’s design choices, it's ultimately a wonderful indie platformer with lots of character. As someone who grew up in the age of early 3D games, and arguably the golden age of platformers, Lunstice is a loving tribute to those simpler times.
This title is a rare form of film and game melded together in such a creative way. Because this game plays so simply, there really isn’t much that goes wrong here. If you enjoy a self-paced investigation experience with little hand-holding, make sure to check out Immortality.
Demon Slayer - Kimetsu no Yaiba - The Hinokami Chronicles is a faithful representation of the popular anime but it sticks to that path so strictly that it fails to expand beyond that framework into something more meaningful. Even with the game’s extra characters that add a little spice to the online lobbies or weekend fight nights, The Hinokami Chronicles needs more substance.
I'm serious when I say that the new ending and dungeon are some of the best in all Persona games. In addition, the fact that it is now portable really elevates it to the next level, as performance on the Nintendo Switch is surprisingly fantastic.
Bayonetta 3 is yet another brilliant entry in the series that recaptures the magic of its predecessors while charting new ground for the series’ future. Everything you could want from a sequel is here in spades. If you’re a fan of Bayonetta or just action games in general, a stylish feast awaits.
Yomawari: Lost in the Dark desperately needs a health system or far fewer run-ins with ghosts that can instantly kill the player. Honestly, allowing the player to be scared but keep trudging through would be better to keep the tone and atmosphere consistent.
I wasn’t expecting much out of this expansion but we did get a few lore details that further expand what we know of the Megamycete and the villain using it plus more Village gameplay with a character that we might see more of later in the series. That’s a great thing.
Overall, Scorn gave me a unique experience in a game. I stayed captivated not only by its world but also by the items and weapons I collected during my time with it. Though there were times I felt lost or confused about what was happening, the gameplay kept a solid forward momentum for me.
Overall, Asterigos: Curse of the Stars failed to really stand out above other games in the RPG action-adventure space for me. While the combat and leveling systems felt accommodating for both casual and tenured players of this genre, the lackluster environments and disengaging character interactions failed to hold my attention for any period of time. This game would, in my opinion, appeal to someone who is looking for a lighter adventure title centered more on the gameplay rather than the narrative.
