50 / 100 - Gungrave G.O.R.E
Nov 22, 2022

Gungrave G.O.R.E should've stayed in the 2000s. Its simplistic design doesn't work in the modern day of video games where similar action titles offer much more than just brutal combat. G.O.R.E lacks depth in almost every single way. Its level design is stuck in the past, visuals are outdated and gameplay just doesn't do enough to make this a title worth your time.

55 / 100 - Skye Tales
Aug 17, 2023

Speaking honestly, I tend to be the kind of individual who views the glass as half full and strives to unearth the positives in any situation. However, even with my sincere efforts to identify merits within Skye Tales, I find myself facing significant challenges.

55 / 100 - Gord
Aug 15, 2023

I really wanted to like Gord but sadly, despite an interesting concept and ideas, the execution comes off frustratingly disappointing and shallow.

60 / 100 - Scars Above
Feb 28, 2023

Scars Above is an average third-person action-adventure shooter that doesn't try anything new, despite being set in such an interesting sci-fi world, that invites unique ideas and concepts.

Bright Memory Infinite turned out to be a game that can go either way on the scale for the average player but nonetheless impressive work for what is essentially a one-man studio.

In its current state, Battlefield 2042 is not worth your money but there is hope that later in 2022, this can become a shooter that fans of the series were hoping for.

65 / 100 - Skull and Bones
Feb 21, 2024

When a ten-year-old Assassin's Creed game proves to be a superior pirate experience compared to an actual pirate game which Skull and Bones is on paper, that only raises questions about the true nature of the latter.

Super Crazy Rhythm Castle serves as an ideal game for spending a few enjoyable hours with friends and family or as a diversion from more serious and demanding gaming experiences. However, its repetitive gameplay can lead to frequent bouts of boredom, as it doesn't introduce many innovative ideas beyond the frantic key-hitting and rhythmic challenges across various tracks.

The Callisto Protocol simply isn't scary, doesn't play well and has nothing to hook you into its world. It's a poor excuse for a horror game and you're better off waiting for Dead Space Remake than spending $70 on this one.

I don't think Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is a bad game, it's just incredibly boring for a Call of Duty campaign. It's just not as memorable and won't stick with me for years as some other Call of Duty campaigns did. Perhaps I should learn to keep my expectations in check from now on but even if I went in expecting nothing, I'd say Call of Duty is just an okay game that could be worth your time if you're a die-hard fan.

68 / 100 - Atomic Heart
Feb 20, 2023

Atomic Heart may be summarised in a single statement as a game with amazing ideas but lousy execution. I cannot say that Atomic Heart is a bad game, it's just that I expected a lot more from it, and as a result, I got disappointed.

SpongeBob SquarePants The Cosmic Shake is a decent platformer, but no more than that. Occasional brilliant moments of pure acting excellence and acceptable comedy are simply insufficient to distinguish this game from the genre's not-so-strong competition. Make no mistake, this game can be fun, but it lacks that certain something that would make it an easy recommendation to fans of platformers.

If, like me, you're a fan of a compelling single-player campaign and that's the sole reason you're considering playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, it's advisable to save your money for a more rewarding experience.

My Time at Sandrock is a relaxing and fun farming simulator but players will need to invest a decent amount of time to get to the part of the game where it becomes enjoyable. The inventory system is one of the best systems I have seen in a long time and the NPCs are interesting to interact with as every chat brings something new.

RoboCop: Rogue City stands as a sturdy shooter with a decent story and gameplay. With more careful balancing, it had the potential to be significantly better.

70 / 100 - Redfall
May 2, 2023

Despite some obvious flaws, Redfall is still an enjoyable experience even if you don't have a buddy or two to help you out in staking those bloodsuckers in co-op. Arkane once again managed to create an immersive, atmospheric world with their signature environmental storytelling and gameplay. While Redfall definitely isn't the studio's strongest game to date and can feel a bit undercooked I couldn't put it down as I had a blast wandering around the vampire-infested streets and countryside of this cosy American town.

I consider Lost Valley a must-buy if you already have the base game. Steam reviews for it are currently a bit iffy, owing to the aforementioned game-breaking bugs that have been fixed since but you will rarely find this much content being sold for $13 / €13 / £11.

Expeditions: Rome is a game with high points in storytelling and gameplay alike but the latter aspect has some glaring issues that drag it back quite a bit. Without too much eye candy, the game strives to show you the world and help you immerse into it, instead of expecting you to look at it as if you were window shopping.

Tandem: A Tale of Shadows has a lot of unused potential and some parts of the game almost seem unfinished or discarded mid-development but it still manages to deliver an experience well worth your time, should you decide to grab it.

7 / 10 - New World
Oct 8, 2021

New World can be described as a work in progress, one that is of very high quality, with the core game's mechanics being in place and ready to take the brunt of a top-tier title, but there is still not enough meat on the figurative bones.
