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

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

Persona 5 – Review – Best Game Ever!

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

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey – Love & Hate Review

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.

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

Final Fantasy XV – Review

finalfantasyxv-1After ten years in production that long time awaited Final Fantasy XV has arrived in November 29, 2016. as a longtime fan and being Final Fantasy my favorite series in videogames and Final Fantasy VII being my all time favorite game, I took my sweet time to play it to completion.

With such a legacy standing behind it, so many memorable stories, characters and worlds throughout the series and most of all, the very controversial reception to Final Fantasy XIII, this game had a lot to prove right from the get go. So, how did it do?
