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

The Evil Within – Review – A Mess That Should Be Played

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

Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse – Short Review

It seems the Shantae series have been going for quite a while. Actually, this series began on the Gameboy Color but I have only heard of it recently. Well, not that recently as in the Nintendo DS days I heard about a game called Shantae being released on the DSi Shop but as I didn’t own a Nintendo DS DSi, only the Lite model I kind of forgot about it.
A few years forward and many more games of this franchise have been released on pretty much all platforms and after seeing some charming graphics and pretty artwork I, being a sucker for a good 2D platformer, decided to give it a go. Continue reading

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate – Review

I used to be a fan of the Assassin’s Creed franchise but annual releases and repetition got to me. Just to give some background, I finished the first game but had mixed feelings about it but at least at the time there were some very good stuff to compensate the bad.

Then came the second game which was a blast to play from beginning to end. After that I played Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood which while a good game felt more of the same but worse. After this game I did try most of the games but I rarely could play more than a few hours and not get bored or annoyed by some really bad missions and reoccurring issues with the franchise. Even the beloved Black Flag while a blast to play when sailing was so monotonous while traveling on land I just couldn’t get myself to play it more than a few hours.

So, after a long hiatus with the franchise, in a whim, I decided to give Syndicate a shot after seeing it on a big sale. Well, I’m really glad I took this chance because I had a lot of fun with this game. Continue reading

Mass Effect: Andromeda – Short Review

Like I mentioned in my last post, I played two games on my PlayStation 4 while waiting for the release of Persona 5. One was a fantastic surprise, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. The other was a huge disappointment and I’m sad to say that the disappointing one was Mass Effect Andromeda.

First thing worth mentioning is that Mass Effect Andromeda is by no means a bad game, it’s just a big let down. Considering how incrementally better each of the previous games were I think it’s safe to say fans were expecting it to be at least on the same level of Mass Effect 3 (minus the ending). And this is on my opinion the biggest fault of this game, as aside from a few things, it feels worse in every way. Continue reading
