Forever Classic Games's Reviews
When it comes to putting a score to this dark beauty of a game, I find Hollow Knight to be as close to perfection as some of the greatest games of all time, standing tall upon the shoulders of genre-defining titles, tall enough to leave its own legacy.
Because of games like DUSK, we’ve gotten officially sanctioned expansions to 90s PC classics, enhanced ports with features like ray-tracing, a slew of brilliant content creators, enthusiast magazine E1M1, and a seemingly endless list of games that I’m excited to play... Having one of my favorites of this movement on the go as a Switch game is surreal.
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.
It’s no surprise that I am absolutely in love with Monster Hunter Rise. This game takes a lot of lessons learned in Monster Hunter World and brings that into a more traditional Monster Hunter presentation with game-unique mechanics to explore. It’s a phenomenal entry to the franchise and a technical marvel on the Nintendo Switch platform.
The Last of Us Part II is a technical marvel of game design whose achievements can be completely overshadowed by a player’s reception of its story. While I sit comfortably in the camp of those who thoroughly enjoyed (if that is the right word as the story is often deliberately uncomfortable) the direction taken by Neil Druckmann and his team at Naughty Dog, I can see how people can walk away having had a completely different experience.
All in all, it’s no surprise that Shantae and the Seven Sirens is a solid entry to the platforming franchise. Way Forward is one the most consistent development teams I’ve run into in the past decade or so and it seems like everything they touch I enjoy.
