BossLevelGamer's Reviews

Terminator Resistance: Annihilation Line tries for a second encore that overstays its welcome even when it's working right. Poorly executed and uneventful, it sadly doesn't live up to the standard set by Teyon's main campaign.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong manages to suck almost all the fun out of being a vampire. Billed as an RPG, it functions more like a frustrating puzzle game. Only the most patient players will have the time for it.

5.7 / 10.0 - Kao the Kangaroo
Jun 6, 2022

Kao the Kangaroo is a serviceable 3D platformer. Derivative of its peers and totally indebted to them, the game has a hard time standing out, even though it offers solid, if forgettable, adventuring.

The Skywalker Saga aims to be the greatest LEGO Star Wars experience of all time, only to be a middling mess. Fans will still get something out of it, but nothing here warrants all the headache behind the scenes over the last few years. Despite all odds, TT Games’ latest is a chaotic pile of bricks that never quite click together right.

Assassin's Creed Mirage returns the franchise to its roots in an enjoyable, albeit uneven, gameplay experience. While the story and parkour are disappointing, the city of Baghdad is a delight, and the stealth gameplay is satisfying.

7 / 10.0 - Nightmare Reaper
Apr 5, 2022

Nightmare Reaper has all the makings of a fantastic retro-FPS with rogue-lite elements wonderfully smattered across. However, for all its personality, Nightmare Reaper is also an uneven mess when it strikes the wrong note. A game some will love, warts and all, but many others will walk away wanting for a tighter experience.

7 / 10.0 - Ikai
Apr 1, 2022

Ikai is a game that, despite its hiccups in the opening acts, nails the landing. The focus on Naoko over random jump scares pays off, resulting in an enjoyable experience that will resonate with you for some time.

'ReVamped' is a flawed port of a flawed game, but 'BloodRayne' is so earnestly grindhouse that I've never been able to truly dislike it.

7.1 / 10.0 - MLB The Show 22
Apr 8, 2022

MLB The Show 22 doesn't do much different than last year, and the new highlights are a mixed bag, but it's still a good baseball game. Your mileage will vary about whether or not it's worth your time and money.

Nintendo Switch Sports is a solid experience for those nostalgic for the days of Wii Sports. It's lacking in depth and variety, but you'll still be able to get plenty of enjoyment out of it.

7.7 / 10.0 - ELEX II
Mar 2, 2022

Elex 2 is another example of Piranha Bytes sticking to their guns and making an open-world RPG designed specifically for their core audience. Fans of the studio's previous work will have a field day with this one but everyone else might find it hard to get past the jankiness and technical issues.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a legitimately good game, but it could have been so much more. The franchise has the breath of fresh air it so desperately needs, resulting in enjoyable and addictive gameplay in the wild of the Hisui region. Sadly, the game loves to also hold itself back, with a poor presentation, average visuals, and the same tried and true combat.

Super Mario Strikers is the best Mario sports game for Nintendo Switch yet, but it still feels like style over substance.

Islands of Insight is a beautiful, never-ending puzzle experience that doesn't try to be anything other than what it is.

Even though its side quests and story are mostly forgettable, there is something incredibly addicting about Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising. Its gameplay loop of completing quests, filling your stamp book, upgrading the town and your gear, and unlocking the next area sinks its teeth into you. Rising offers up an addictive, charming, and beautiful taste of what’s to come.

8.5 / 10.0 - Evil Dead: The Game

Saber Interactive's Evil Dead: The Game might be a bore to play solo, but is a blast online and brimming with potential for future updates. This is how they do it in Michigan!

Nobody Saves the World is an enjoyable action RPG with an excellent combat and class system. It doesn't always hit its stride, but when it does, there are few games out there that can compare.

The Tomb Raider I-III collection is faithful to the originals and is a beautifully mastered collection. While I may be incredibly biased, as Tomb Raider is quite literally the reason I’m a games journalist today, it still holds up so well, and you can choose whether you want a modernized or a dated experience.

Cities: Skylines II is a very worthy sequel to the popular 2015 city-building that improves upon the original. It could stand to use some quality-of-life updates, perofrmance optimziaiton, and mod support, but don't let that deter you from diving in.

9 / 10.0 - Starfield
Aug 31, 2023

Starfield is a game that will have players sinking hundreds of hours into it. There are some Bethesda touches that need to be forgiven, and some interesting end game options, but ultimately, it is a game that brings something to the table for every kind of player.
