#DaysGone Starts as a cliched zombie game with a messy story, but as the story progresses, it becomes more interesting & enjoyable & you really start to understand the protagonist’s motivations for being the way he is & why he does what he does. Balance between stealth & gunplay is great & hoards are so much fun
#TLOU2 Amazing combat, graphics. Myriad of accessibility options, top-notch voice acting & physics (wait until you try the rope), but unfortunately as a story-driven game it’s let down by disjointed story direction & unrelatable character development. Wait until it’s cheap & then buy something else
#MossVR Charming storybook VR game, interesting puzzles & a delightful 3D world which encourages you to look at every nook & cranny. Controlling & interacting with the enemy or environment can be tricky. Stop & admire the view. It’s amazing
#Knack2 An entertaining game with a well rounded fun story. Great combat, which is let down at times by awkward camera mechanics. Upgrade chests feel far too spread out & the random drop element often leaves the player with an inventory full of partially complete (and thus useless) items.
#DeadCells A wonderful update on the #RogueLike gameplay, great upgrades. Tough but ultimately rewarding combat. Easy to pick up & play, but hard to master. But if dying in a game over and over again is not your thing, then this isn’t a game for you
#DangerZone2 I love this. It has the spirit and soul of Burnout. Big improvement on the Original #DangerZone. Controls feel a little twitchy at times and it’s a little short on maps. Some of the maps can be VERY tough, but well worth the time. I really missed music in this game.
#XMorphDefense Good value for money for a fun mix of tower defense and pure blasting. Can be very challenging (frustratingly so at times). Tower placement is a little complicated, so during a fight, it can get very fiddly. Great couch co-op.
#BurnoutParadiseRemastered It’s arcade open world driving at it’s greatest – the music takes you straight to Paradise City, it’s Burnout, and there’s a great selection of transports. Plenty to do, but it feels expensive for a re-master.
#Everspace Stunning visuals. Took me a while to get into it, but once it clicked, it was very easy to “just one more run” over and over again. Lots of replayability with it’s take on a “dungeon crawler in space”. It’s great fun with a friend, taking it in turns, laughing when they die hitting an asteroid.
#HorizonZeroDawn #TheFrozenWilds A slow start, but once you get back into it, it really picks up the pace. I ramped the difficulty to “very hard” for this DLC because the intense combat is one of the best parts. Although not the “must buy” DLC I was hoping for, it’s a great way to get more Horizon Zero Dawn, and boy is it good to be back.
