The Click's Reviews
While Dwarf Fortress, much like the Dwarves it features, may still be a bit rough around the edges, the asking price of $29.99 ultimately seems like a fair deal. It is a highly replayable experience filled with questionable Dwarven decisions and antics you’ll find yourself amused or bewildered by on a regular basis for many hours to come, and benefits from the expectation of support continuing long into the future, as it has many years before this Steam version release.
It’s a bitter-sweet game with a refreshing lens on the post-apocalyptic trope developers keep milking. What makes it stand out is that it deviates from the crowd that tries to scratch the superficial itch to just wreak havoc in the digital world, it’s a landscape of purrsibilities. So, go ahead; go astray.
If you’re hankering for a decent horror experience that will give you the willies and challenge your puzzle-solving skills, then MADiSON is for you. If you’re sick of jumpscares in horror games, then consider taking a break cause they’re not going anywhere. If you don’t play horror games and wanna prove to your friend that you’re indeed a hardcore gamer, well…
Pokemon Legends Arceus, while a really fun experience, feels like a very confused game. It tries to blend the traditional Pokemon style of gameplay together with aspects of Breath of the Wild and Monster Hunter, yet unfortunately fails to do anything as good or better than any of them.
If you’ve been on the fence about playing Final Fantasy XIV, know that Endwalker is well worth getting to eventually. Sure, you have to play several years’ worth of content, but just know that at the end of that long journey is a finale that will leave you satisfied and ready for more. Yoshida has stated that he’s nowhere near done with XIV yet, so don’t expect Endwalker to be any indication of the XIV train slowing down anytime soon. Consider it an invitation to experience one of gaming’s finest rides.
Serious Sam Siberian Mayhem distills the DNA of the series down into a series of long, brutally chaotic levels backed by an all-time peak of a soundtrack, and I’d recommend it entirely to both returning players wanting more and new players looking into the series for the first time, with the only downside being that there simply isn’t enough of it in a single playthrough. More of this please, Timelock.
All in all, Legion TD 2 is a reasonably enjoyable game that will appeal to RTS or TD fans, particularly those who enjoy team-based gameplay. However, it could have done much more to branch out from its origins to help justify the £15.49 price, rather than cling to Nostalgia as much as it does.
Islanders is a game you can play either in short bursts or hours at a time if the mood for a longer session strikes you. The entire product is a thoroughly enjoyable exercise in creation, the mechanics layered on top make the game a complete and compelling experience, while the core gameplay remains simple – and at £4.79, the hardest part is finding a reason to not own it already.
Without a doubt, you’ll get your money’s worth with Dread, but if you’ve been cold on the Metroid series before, don’t expect this one to change your mind. This is a game for Metroid fans and as a result, it adheres closely to that formula; but that formula is still really good and is well worth trying out if you’ve never played a Metroid before. Having this game be your introduction to the world of Metroid wouldn’t be bad and would definitely give you a leg up on the other games in terms of skill.
If Grand Theft Auto The Trilogy – Definitive Edition was $30 and on Steam I could perhaps justify buying into the hype and being excited about these games. But, $60 on Rockstar’s own launcher that you will forget even exists and never turn this game on? No, I can’t recommend this game with good conscience.
Overall, Deltarune Chapter 2 was a pleasant time from beginning to end and especially resonant with me as a fan of the past games. While there were some minor gripes I have with the storytelling or battles, I was generally having a great time going through the locales, enjoying the cast and charming writing throughout.
No More Heroes III really is the end of Travis Touchdown’s adventures, then it’s a hell of a way to go out. No More Heroes III is the bombastic and absurd send off the series deserved, and while it could’ve used some more polish in places, the passion underneath the rough spots is very notable. SUDA51’s send off to Travis Touchdown is equal parts insane and endearing all at once. There is no doubt in my mind that he loves the world of No More Heroes and will definitely miss the main cast as time goes on.
Although the game didn’t really click with me in the first hour or so, once things started to fall in place for me I got completely sucked into the story of the game. I would tell myself, “I will do just take out this Visionary and then I will turn it off” but I just kept playing, that is the sign of a great game.
Hajimari no Kiseki is a deeply flawed JRPG with a main story that barely stands on its own but is supported by a fantastic cast and great individual moments throughout. The story may feel like one which didn’t need to be told for the series to move forward, but what is contained in the routes and episodes feel like concerted attempts to fix many issues brought to the table in Cold Steel, and set many of these characters and story beats straight so they can excel in future arcs.
Pokemon Unite is a genuinely fun and engaging game with lots of endearing features to keep players coming back. In just the time spend working on this Pokemon Unite review, I made it to expert rank without even noticing just how much I had enjoyed getting there.
If you’re already a Trails fan, I doubt you will hate the game. Hell, if you’re a Trails fan you probably already OWN the game, but could I recommend Trails of Cold Steel IV to a newbie or even just a fan of the genre? Not really. I’d recommend the Sky trilogy on Steam, or even just the first Cold Steel game to see if the series interests you.
