10. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice
My number ten was the only game on this list I didn’t truly enjoy. It does, in my opinion, have as many good qualities as it has bad ones. Continue reading
Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is a visual novel, a direct sequel to Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc.
Being this game a visual novel one should know what to expect. The meat and bones of the game is the story and its characters. While I liked the first Danganronpa very much I’m sad to say I have very mixed feeling towards its sequel. Continue reading
I’ve been a big fan of “Metroidvania” games for a long time but up to this point, for whatever reason, I’ve had never completed a Metroid game so it just made sense to start with the first. However the original one I dare say didn’t age very well, so I went with its remake and what a pleasant adventure I was in for. Continue reading
The Evil Within it a difficult game to judge. At times is it was very good but at others it was infuriating. Regardless of its flaws, I think that for survival horror fans this is a game that should not be missed.
For this review I’ll try to talk about how I felt about the game in general, so there might be spoilers here and there. Since I think the story is not that great, there isn’t much to spoil but this is my warning. Continue reading
After five months playing Persona 5 I have finally beat it. I also decided to give a few weeks to let everything sink in in order to write a fair review. The reason I’m doing this is because I love it so much I want to try to remove the hype factor but honestly I think it’s impossible now because of how much I enjoyed it.
With so much to cover I don’t think I know where to begin from, so let’s go in order this time and start with the story. Continue reading
Incredible. Perfect. Masterpiece. 10 out of 10. By now you should have probably heard all the praise this game has garnered and I have to admit, after finishing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I am here to reiterate. So let’s begin why this game is so damn good and personally easily among my top 10 favorite games of all time.
Not trying to pull any puns but Breath of the Wild is a breath of fresh air in the world of gaming. Gone are the hand holding, pointers, markers, intrusive companions and in its stead you have freedom. As soon as you start the game you have a brief cutscene where you hear Princess Zelda and after that you are free to explore.
There is a small area that you are restricted to at the beginning of the game after you wake up from a one hundred years slumber but this area itself is quite big. Here you you will acquire some runes which will be useful throughout all your adventure. Those abilities can be used in puzzles, combat and exploration. It is incredible how much creativity there is in each area of the game. Now, instead of me trying to write a page full of praises, let’s be a bit more objective and I’ll go through more praises as I go along and my minor tiny little complains.
Before I even start my review I have to say that I love this game but I also hate it. Thankfully I love it way more than I hate it but by god, it’s hard having mixed feeling about something and trying to put them into words. In Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey you have some aspects that are so incredibly good, immersive and captivating but on the other hand there are some things that are so infuriating…
Bear in mind, I consider myself big fan of the Megami Tensei games and while I love most games of this franchise I’ve played, there are some things in some entries that I can’t help but criticize.
Some of my complains here may seem like a rant, and in a way they are but bear in mind that even having a big and growing fandom, not all fans enjoy the same qualities of the games equally. While my complains are not restricted to Strange Journey I think it’s pertinent to talk about those here because of all the games I’ve played, they are most apparent in this title.
The game starts when a distortion appears in Antarctica, some sort or a black-ish hole, engulfing it and named the Schwarzwelt. This area is steadily growing and threatening to eventually cover the entire planet. To stop it, the United Nations sends a special team to go inside, look into it and somehow try to find a way to stop it, however they could not possible imagine what they would find once they enter it.
