#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.
#StarWars #Battlefront2 Engaging single player story & a fun multiplayer. Has a real Star Wars feel to it, both on the ground and in space, with plenty of upgrades available in game. I personally had no problems with the Loot Box upgrade system, but it might not appeal to everybody.
#AssassinsCreedOrigins Great prequel to a well-established franchise. The RPG elements & skill trees, as well as the beautifully crafted open world, make it a joy to play. Interesting NPC’s and a great story.
#MiddleEarth #ShadowOfWar It’s unnecessarily long. Nemesis system is still great fun. RPG elements, loot & the skill tree are all welcome improvements & additions. The story is difficult to follow at times. It’s good fun but not that good.
