The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel Review

So much happened while playing this game I honestly don’t know how to start. How about a little introduction to the Legend of Heroes series.

Developed by Nihon Falcom The Legend of Heroes games are comprised, as of this writing, of eight games. Some are sequential, meaning you will probably want to play the following game but every other game is a start of a new story, just like Trails of Cold Steel. Continue reading

God of War (2018) – Review

I’m far from being a big God of War fan. I’ve beaten the first and third installment, and played halfway through the second; and while I think they are good action games they were never on my list of favorites. It’s not to the detriment of the games because I just prefer the eastern way of approaching to combat in the likes of Devil May Cry, Bayonetta and Ninja Gaiden, but as far as western action games go I honestly thin hey were among the top.

With that said, I’ll share here my thoughts about the many aspects of Gof of War (2018) and why I think it’s a very good game but (and I’m sorry here fans) not even close to the masterpiece some are claiming it to be. Just bear in mind that in the end of the day these are just my opinions and while I don’t think the game to be flawless I still think it is by far the best in the franchise. Continue reading

Company of Heroes – Review

There are some games that are universally praised, some you would like to enjoy yourself but sometimes it’s not just for you. Company of Heroes is one of those for me. First and foremost I would like to point out that this is not a bad game, I actually found it to be good in some aspects and fun at times but I have some issues with it that kill the enjoyment for me in a flash.
A nice way to make an analogy to try and explain how much I enjoy playing Company of Heroes it would be to think of a cardiogram. Things start nice, you are having fun but those annoyances come and my enjoyment go down pretty fast, and they are constant to the point I can’t ignore them.

I’ll try to do a different review for this game since while I do think it is a decent game, it’s just not one for me, but by highlighting what I perceive as good or bad, maybe I can help other people to make a decision if this game is for them or not. Continue reading

Ys Memories of Celceta – Review

Up to Ys Memories of Celceta the only other game in the series I had played was Ys Origin which is incredible from start to finish. So when I bought Memories of Celceta I had high expectations for it. So how did it fare?
To be honest I have very mixed feelings on the game. At times, I was wondering why I was playing it, and at others I was so pumped I was even thinking about when I couldn’t play it. My major complain with the game is that at times, especially in the beginning, it can be a bore and story takes way too long to become interesting.

I realize in starting the review of an RPG complaining about its story and it may not look like a good sign but bear in mind the Ys games are first and foremost an Action RPGs. So, while the story does play its part the meat of the game is the action, which I’ll say right now that it’s great but we’ll get to it later. Continue reading

Front Mission 3 – You can’t please everyone

It’s sad when there is a game everyone loves and it doesn’t matter how much you try and you just can’t get into the game. Probably most gamers have at least a few beloved games that just simply isn’t for them even if it’s in one of their more cherished genres. For me Front Mission 3 was this game.

I’m a big fan of Strategy RPGs and Final Fantasy Tactics is among my favorite games of all time. I’ve played even many forgotten SRPGs like Stella Deus and Jeanne d’Arc but I’m also into the more known, such as Disgaea and Fire Emblem. So it’s not without love for the genre but Front Mission 3 for me is a huge disappointment.  Continue reading

Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne – Review

Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne is a hard game but it is all the better for it. I have a long history with this game and I’m happy that finally I was able to finally beat it, and not only that, but with the best possible ending and beating all optional bosses. Before we get to the review itself, I’d like to share a bit of my personal history with the Shin Megami Tensei (SMT) franchise and how it led to Nocturne.

I beat this game in the last days of December (2017) but it took me more than a month to write a review for it. I think the reason why is because of how much it stuck on me. I’ll try to share my thoughts on this fantastic game and the reason why I think that every fan of JRPGs should at least give it a try at some point. With that in mind, let’s begin.
