The Game Crater's Reviews

9 / 10.0 - Valorant
Jun 17, 2020

Precise headshots, nerve-wracking bomb plants, and powerful agents distinguish Valorant as one of the best in its class.

7 / 10.0 - Beyond Blue
Jun 21, 2020

Beyond Blue is a brilliant combination of artistry and education, putting the ocean on its pedestal. The documentary format feels informative without being pushy, except glitches and mind-numbing gameplay overshadow it.

9 / 10.0 - Half-Life: Alyx
Jul 16, 2020

Half-Life: Alyx has its flaws, though these are hard to focus on when no other game offers an experience such as this. For now, Half-Life: Alyx is an absolute must-play title for both Half-Life fans and VR enthusiasts or anyone that has an opportunity to play it.

9 / 10.0 - F1 2020
Jul 29, 2020

Sometimes Codemasters miss the target with their annual F1 series releases, but this time, they hit it out of the park.

9.5 / 10.0 - Ghost of Tsushima
Aug 14, 2020

Ghost of Tsushima is a perfectly constructed work of art only let down by minor details.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 is a smooth classic. The return of the original skaters with a handful of new characters makes it unique. It ticks every box for a solid remake and continues to impress the more you play.

Marvel’s Avengers feels like it has stolen ideas from other games only to implement them unsuccessfully. Level design is ordinary, and the missions are forgettable. The customisation saves the game, but with overpriced cosmetics, it is hard to justify the point of grinding. The gameplay is filled with glitches and bugs, making it hard for you to find any rhythm. Overall, Marvel’s Avengers is an average experience that you can find better elsewhere.

Toys For Bob understands Crash. They add new components to keep the game fresh while maintaining everything you expect from a typical Crash Bandicoot game. Each level is wonderfully crafted and distinct, even if, at times, they do feel a bit too long. The addition of N. Verted levels extends the game's length, which is not always a good thing. Nevertheless, including different playable characters as well as the Quantum Masks enhances the series to new heights. Overall, Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is the perfect blend of old and new.

Starting simple before evolving into a complex mystery, Dude Where Is My Beer? offers a modern experience in a classic point and click format. Despite it being very challenging, the captivating hand-drawn art style and unique game mechanics make it an experience not to be missed.

Making decisions that directly affect your fate is always personal, but in The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope, it doesn't feel as brutal as it should.

There is no doubt Football Manager 2021 is a great game. If you’re new to it, you need to prepare to sit down and get ready for the long haul. But pay those dues, and you will be richly rewarded by the immersive world Sega has so lovingly created.

Morbid: The Seven Acolytes is a fun, gruesome game with challenging battles and a rich, immersive world.

6.5 / 10.0 - Death Tales
Dec 6, 2020

Death Tales offers enthralling level design with colours dynamically reacting everywhere you look. Regrettably, this is where the positives end. Each level plays the same as the next, and some items remove large amounts of difficulty from the game.

With an incredible presentation, flashy combat, memorable characters, and depth and nuance in its complicated time-travelling kaiju-fighting narrative, 13 Sentinels Aegis Rim is a must-play for most PS4 owners with at least a tolerance for anime melodrama.

9.5 / 10.0 - Spiritfarer
Dec 13, 2020

Spiritfarer certainly delivered on representing aspects of different games while most assuredly being its own entity and should be considered a low-key masterpiece.

The Demon’s Souls Remake is the most technically impressive Souls game to date. It is superior to the original, but at its core, it is the same game. The game offers the same core gameplay-loop you know and love, set in a fantastic world and atmosphere.

8.5 / 10.0 - Suzerain
Dec 25, 2020

Through its flexible choices and paths, Suzerain avoids the binaries that many choice-based games fall into, and it allows for the stark and realistic depiction of a young democracy.

7.5 / 10.0 - Cyberpunk 2077
Dec 27, 2020

CD Projekt Red has laid the foundation for serious potential but possibly should have waited until 2077 to release the game.

In a year where indie games shone through, Super Meat Boy Forever is disappointing. The auto-running concept feels restricting, and the procedurally generated levels make the game more frustrating than it needs to be.

Windfolk is a great game, with excellent flying, several gorgeous open environments to explore, an exciting and captivating narrative, and, on occasions, enjoyable combat.
