EIP Gaming's Reviews
Despite a handful of missteps, Chorus is a bold entry in the space combat genre and introduces mechanics other games would do well to imitate. Polished and fun, Chorus manages to offer a lot without ever overreaching and tells a compelling story while doing so.
If you're looking for a quick arcade bowling experience with someone, Date Night Bowling will give you a relaxing and fun time. However, don't expect to learn much about the characters and how they get along. The game has a great pixelated look and music to go along with it, but it has almost no replay value outside of seeing the dialogue with each character pairing.
A fantastic tabletop RPG in video game format, with incredibly polished gameplay + Immersive world brought to life by the game master & cards gimmicks + Interesting characters that do not conform to genre tropes & cliches - Too short at 10-15 hours & slightly too easy with no difficulty setting
The core gameplay is fun, but the digital version brings all the problems from the board game with no solutions. The single-player mode misses out on the social aspect that makes the board game worth playing, without making up for it in mechanics or story.
Inscryption boasts solid deck-builder-style gameplay supported by excellent writing, sound design, and overall atmosphere. While some puzzles were too easy, and the puzzle-like nature of the deckbuilding itself hurts replayability, it's still easy to recommend Inscryption to anyone who finds its aesthetics and tone appealing.
If you like Metroidvanias, and weird creepy stuff is your jam, this is the game for you. If you prefer your narratives easy to follow, and have a low tolerance for gross monsters and dying a bunch, you're better off skipping this one.
Hot Wheels Unleashed has a truckload of content at launch to keep any gamer looking to collect vehicles and win races busy. While DLCs may not be everybody's cup of tea, at the end of the day it doesn't affect the way you play. Those who want to collect a few exclusive vehicles can do so, while everyone can have fun racing and winning.
In Sound Mind boasts an intriguing story, decent (if repetitive) combat, and enjoyable puzzles and platforming. However, the lackluster horror, uneven character development, and lack of immersion bring down an otherwise solid psychedelic horror experience.
If you are a fan of classic JRPGs and customization in your characters, then you're going to have a great time with Astria's Ascending, however someone new to these types of games may find themselves overwhelmed. Accompanying it is a pretty solid story, which unfortunately doesn't stick the landing.
All the pieces are here for an engaging JRPG with real-time dungeon action, but weak writing and repetitive gameplay drag down what could have been an excellent game. If the aesthetic doesn't speak to the depths of your soul, you're better off skipping this one.
While it doesn't always captivate, Dice Legacy is unequivocally unique and enjoyable. It manages to capture the addictiveness of city builders, and somehow blends it with a roguelike to make something entirely new. Any fans of strategy gaming should give this one a try.
Nice to look at, only OK to play. If you can ignore all the broken promises, and the lack of any real RPG gameplay, there's a halfway-decent FPS game here. If, on the other hand, you buy this game expecting it to be the sweeping, branching-narrative RPG that was advertised, you're gonna be disappointed.
Kingdom Come strived for novelty, immersive storytelling, and realistic features. It checked all of these boxes and then some. It provides a truly unique experience. Unfortunately, many of these features can become difficult to manage and can limit user experience. That said, it is a game that any fan of historical fiction needs to play and is sure to stay in their rotation for years to come
There's already a lot to like, and if future updates are well handled, Going Medieval could easily become one of the best Colony Simulators out there. The survival aspects are both realistic and fun, as are the construction and resource management portions of the game.
Sometimes greatness comes not from something new or groundbreaking, but from a fantastic iteration on what's come before. Besides Death Door's story and characters, it doesn't bring much that's new to the table... but it does everything so well that it's earned a permanent place on my shelf of games I bug everyone about until they play.
