Pure Dead Gaming's Reviews

Watch Dogs Legion is a great game. London is an excellent setting and the gameplay variation makes for a really fun experience. The recruit anyone mechanic is an interesting idea that works well if you are willing to overlook the awful lip-syncing and some odd-looking characters. If you enjoyed Watch Dogs 2 and don’t mind a game that is a little light on narrative, you will enjoy this third entry in the series.

With its much-improved stealth, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has won me over. This feels like the best AC in a long time. It gives you the choice on how you want to tackle your objectives, something Odyssey lacked if you wanted to stay in the shadows like the Assassins of old.

8 / 10 - Fuser
Dec 5, 2020

Fuser is a great addition to the music genre. It has so many great tracks and does an excellent job of making you feel, and sound, like a pro. Given the full retail price, it is possible that the game fails to find an audience long term, but I hope that isn’t the case because Harmonix has created something kinda special here.

I could probably harp on about Immortals for another few thousand words, but I’ll save you the rant. I will, however, leave you with this: Immortals Fenyx Rising is really good. The humour may not be for everyone, but there’s a ton more here than you might expect, and I think it’s worth your time if you’re into open-world action-adventure games. It may not bring much new to the table, but it’s a 30-50 hour journey that I’m super happy I went on – and you should too.

7 / 10 - Olija
Jan 28, 2021

It was the fast-paced, gory combat and unique visual direction that first drew me to Olija, and while I enjoyed my time with it, there isn’t much here that hasn’t been done better elsewhere. I’m always impressed by games made by small teams and this is no different – just be sure to go in with proper expectations.

Overall, Scott Pilgrim vs The World is one of the better side-scrolling 2D beat 'em ups I have played. The difficulty, especially early on when you feel underpowered, remains an issue. The game is dripping with charm though and despite the frustrations it kept me coming back for more and wanting to fill out my upgrades with different characters. Hopefully, the online stability can improve, completing a worthwhile return for the once banished gem.

Hitman 3 is an early game of the year contender for me. It really is the ultimate stealth sandbox and one that any fan of the genre should check out. IO Interactive has taken their skills to the next level and I cannot wait to see what they do with the 007 license.

The Medium is a game with more highs than lows. Bloober Team has taken a definite step in the right direction with this latest venture and I look forward to seeing them build on these foundations.

Tense, chilling and undeniably charming throughout. Little Nightmares II is exactly what I wanted from a sequel to one of my favourite Indie games ever. Buy this game. It will be one of 2021's finest.

Taxi Chaos is nostalgic arcade fun. For better, and for worse it takes the Crazy Taxi formula and modernises it without breaking new ground. Fans of the genre will find a lot to like here.

RetroMania Wrestling accomplishes its goal of being a worthy sequel to WrestleFest, adding fun fleshed out modes. A steep learning curve and harsh overall difficulty may force some to tap out early though.

Pine offers a very unique simulation sandbox that can be fun to play around in. Unfortunately, a number of issues plague the experience, so budding adventurers should keep their expectations in check.

Paradise Lost tells an interesting tale in a beautiful and captivating setting. If you can get past the incredibly slow movement, there is plenty to enjoy here. Just don't expect much gameplay.

The best story-driven co-op adventure game I have played. It really does take two at almost every turn in this excellently crafted world. A must play.

Disco Elysium is a truly unique, narrative-driven point-and-click RPG that puts you in the shoes of a detective caught in the middle of a murder investigation… and so, so much more. While not without flaws, it’s well worth playing for those looking for a deeper story - and maybe even deeper meaning.

Both the Darkside Detective and its sequel 'A Fumble in the Dark' are superb games. The characters, humour and outstanding graphics all combine to make one of the most memorable point & click games in recent memory. Trophy glitches aside, both of these games are must-buys!

Hood: Outlaws & Legends offers mostly fun heists with friends and strangers alike. Despite technical issues and a general lack of content, there’s a lot of potential for good times ahead.

Replacing goats with pensioners and expanding the possibilities with better controls, more weapons and a literal bucket list of things to do makes this a sandbox worth exploring. Great price too!

Mass Effect Legendary Edition might just offer a new look at some older games, but it still stands tall as one of the best and most memorable RPG series around.
