The Game Crater's Reviews

9 / 10.0 - Rollerdrome
Aug 19, 2022

Despite a misguided challenge system, Rollerdrome innovates with plenty of guns, grinds, grabs, and even strategy.

3 / 10.0 - XEL
Aug 7, 2022

XEL paints a beautiful picture but fails to produce anything notable beyond this. Between one-dimensional characters, uninspired combat, and rampant progression barriers, I found very few things to enjoy here. If you are a starved Zelda fan looking for a sci-fi twist or care little about a story this may be worth your time.

6.5 / 10.0 - Gran Turismo 7
Apr 10, 2022

With incredible controller haptics and stunning graphics, Gran Turismo 7 is an incredibly immersive game on PlayStation 5 that suffers from some horrific microtransactions.

8 / 10.0 - Tunic
Mar 16, 2022

TUNIC is an obtuse deconstruction of the original Legend of Zelda, capturing its spirit and modernizing it with a soulslike edge.

6 / 10.0 - Shadow Warrior 3
Mar 1, 2022

Shadow Warrior 3 is oftentimes a lot of fun, especially if you're keen on dirty jokes, visceral violence and stunning vistas. However, repetitive gameplay and a lack of overall content bring the experience done.

4 / 10.0 - Martha is Dead
Feb 24, 2022

Martha Is Dead had an opportunity to explore mental health, loss, and abuse in an engrossing and meaningful way. However, it disappointingly falls flat. A myriad of bugs and annoying gameplay elements completely and utterly ruin this potentially great experience.

6.5 / 10.0 - Monark
Feb 16, 2022

Set in a similar setting with concepts derived from many other JRPGs, Monark fails to differentiate itself in the genre.

10 / 10.0 - Edge of Eternity
Feb 14, 2022

Despite being only developed by a handful of people, Edge of Eternity is by far one of the greatest JRPGs ever made. Its stunning visuals, incredible soundtrack, complex narrative and intricate combat make it an incredibly ambitious title that fulfils each and every promise it makes.

Zorya: The Celestial Sisters is a near-perfect co-op experience. It offers creative and enjoyable gameplay that differs depending on which character you choose. Its challenging, yet approachable gameplay is addictive and will see you coming back for more. Despite some minor issues, this is a brilliantly phenomenal cooperative game.

Grapple Dog is an approachable platformer with enough depth in its central mechanics to encourage replayability and mastery.

OlliOlli World's accessible mechanics, gorgeous visuals and easy to complete levels make it the perfect entry-level game for those who wish to live out the skateboarding fantasy.

6.5 / 10.0 - Vagante
Jan 31, 2022

Vagante is a brutal roguelike game with a beautiful pixel art style and a procedurally-generated world. However, some might find it more frustrating than it is fun.

Monster Rancher 1 & 2 DX stays faithful to the originals by mostly adding quality of life fixes to enhance the game. While not everything was modernised, there is enough here for players to have a great time.

Nov 16, 2021

Sherlock Homes Chapter One takes full advantage of the next-gen consoles with stunning graphics on the PlayStation 5 while also providing plenty of cases to solve and a comprehensive narrative. Unfortunately, the game doesn't hold your hand, and with an empty open world, you might feel a little stuck.

Koei Tecmo put in the effort to modernise Fatal Frame, and it shows. Not only have they ditched fixed camera angles, but combat has also been revamped to make ghost-hunting more fluid. While I miss the less-linear exploration, I know some players would greatly appreciate the guided episodic format.

8.5 / 10.0 - Airborne Kingdom
Nov 10, 2021

Airborne Kingdom’s unique nomadic city-builder premise is held up by brilliant multi-layered strategic decisions that not only make it intriguing to strategy veterans but very approachable to newcomers through its organic tutorials.

8.5 / 10.0 - Back 4 Blood
Nov 9, 2021

Back 4 Blood is a great zombie title that can fill the void of Left 4 Dead. It offers a steady narrative with fleshed-out characters and an incredibly unique card system that changes how to play each level. While the matchmaking and PvP mode feel a bit lacklustre, Back 4 Blood still provides a fabulous zombie-killing experience.

7.5 / 10.0 - Bloodshore
Nov 4, 2021

While the narrative might be a little predictable, for its low price, great acting, and endless replayability, Bloodshore is a must-play for those interested in FMV.

9.5 / 10.0 - To The Rescue!
Nov 2, 2021

To The Rescue! is a rewarding and fulfilling dog shelter simulation that perfectly encapsulates the challenges, stresses and difficulties of running a dog shelter while offering an addictive and meaningful gameplay loop that never gets old.

6.5 / 10.0 - Far Cry 6
Oct 30, 2021

Far Cry 6 doesn’t necessarily reinvent the open-world action-adventure franchise, nor does it take Far Cry a place it hasn’t been before.
