#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.
#Persona5 Dungeon crawling, turn-based JRPG, crossed with a high school social simulator. It boasts gorgeous aesthetics, an amazing soundtrack, an interesting combat system & a story that keeps you playing well into the night. A perfect entry-point to the series for new players.
#NexMachina A fast, fun, twin stick shooter with amazing graphics & sounds. There is so much variery. Easy to play, but hard to master – it’s like #Resogun, just completely different.
#Horizon #ZeroDawn Amazing game with a great story & fantastic characters. Some of the best dynamic & fluid combat I have ever experienced. Combat makes you feel better about your abilities as a gamer & encourages you to be creative when handling different situations and weapons
#Torment #TidesofNumenera Looks good. It has a lot of charm & the dialogue helps to describe what the game doesn’t show you. The areas feel small, and the fights weren’t engaging. I struggled to engage with the characters & the game failed to keep my attention at times.
#FinalFantasyXV Stellar soundtrack & breathtaking visuals. Story is at times flimsy, but is helped by watching the CGI movie “Kingsglaive” & the anime “Brotherhood”. New combat system looks gorgeous & feels powerful, but camera positions & controls occasionally acting up causes frustration. Must play for true fans & worth playing for first timers.
#DeusEx #MankindDivided Brilliant voice acting. The story premise is well implemented, but the main protagnist seems to lack motivation. Feels easy to pick up and play, but the there are some really annoying micro-transactions, some linked to your characters level up kits. Overall a disappointment that shouldn’t have been a disappointment. The last one was so good
#MantisBurnRacing Old School top down racer, easy controls & a great multiplayer option. Lacks track variety, lack of power-ups means you always have to race to your best, which is both great and frustrating at the same time.
#Hitman has a great pick & play feel to it. Wonderfully designed maps, with a lot of different ways to take our your target(s). The episodic release schedule really helps make this feel like a game designed for longevity and helps encourage you to replay the existing content.
