EIP Gaming's Reviews

Mar 22, 2021

Sanity of Morris gets a 4/10 for some decent ideas, but it's hard to recommend unless you're so obsessed with the X-Files that you'll play anything remotely resembling one of Mulder and Scully's adventures.

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.

6.2 / 10.0 - In Sound Mind
Sep 27, 2021

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.

6.2 / 10.0 - Eastward
Sep 19, 2021

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.

6.5 / 10.0 - Gloomhaven
Oct 27, 2021

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.

6.7 / 10.0 - Loot River
May 3, 2022

Loot River's amazing atmosphere and striking story are not enough to make up for one crucial element: poor gameplay. This author will be hoping for patch notes in the future to see if this game rises to its potential.

6.9 / 10.0 - McPixel 3
Nov 14, 2022

Potty humor and explosions are the name of the game in this series of random point-and-click sequences. Trial and error trumps logic, and pee conquers all.

7 / 10 - Trek to Yomi
May 6, 2022

Trek to Yomi is a beautiful game that gives you a truly cinematic experience. While short-lived, it is worth playing through the game to gain the experience of being a Samurai back during an era where they were prominent.

7 / 10 - Young Souls
Mar 10, 2022

This stylish couch-co op beat-em-up actually plays better as a one-player game. The story’s pacing is a bit plodding, but the overall beats of the plot are solid and engaging. The combat feels much the same, in that it has the makings of greatness marred by issues with rhythm and timing. Young Souls shoots for the stars and lands somewhere in the moon’s orbit instead.

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.

7.5 / 10.0 - Let's Sing 2023
Nov 21, 2022

The latest Let's Sing entry provides more of what you'd want: a list of hit songs, and a fun, engaging way to sing along to them from the comfort of your own home. Players with older consoles and peripherals may have some technical issues, but the package as a whole is polished.

7.5 / 10.0 - Astria Ascending
Sep 27, 2021

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.

With not a whole lot of options at the beginning of the game to choose which animal gets what role in the farm, or even a little more explanation why come choices go the way they do, it was still interesting to follow the 1945 story and compare it to today's day in age. While there are a few more endings I'm able to get, I'll be going back to the game to see how I may be able to get there by forcing a few choices through.

7.6 / 10.0 - Bloodshore

An entertaining way to spend an evening with friends, with enough twists and turns to justify at least two or three playthroughs.

7.9 / 10.0 - Thymesia
Aug 16, 2022

Thymesia offers an excellent combat system and some clever twists on old mechanics; it's a shame that the story and level design aren't nearly as strong. If combat is your thing, or you're in need of another action RPG, Thymesia fits the bill, but some players may find themselves losing interest after the tenth same-y corridor.

Despite a steep learning curve, Monster Energy Supercross 5 manages to offer a satisfying experience even for players new to the genre. While some of the extras like the skill trees don't always stick the landing, it's a polished and well-crafted experience that's likely to please both hardcore and casual Supercross fans alike.

Gotham Knights has a lot more to offer than meets the eye. It cannot be denied that the game is already dated, technically inefficient, and full of bizarre choices. Still, I cannot help to praise all it does right, especially that which has gone ignored by critics in favor of easy nitpicks and criticisms. The combat mechanics and worldbuilding are a special highlight.

8 / 10 - Soulstice
Sep 20, 2022

Soulstice is a fun action game that shows just how powerful a sisterly bond can be. While there are flaws holding it back from being amazing, it gives an overall satisfying combat experience.

While being a short experience, Video Game Fables is a very engaging game that never takes itself too seriously. Fans of RPGs will enjoy seeing how the game jokes about many aspects of the genre.
