#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
#Diablo3 #EternalCollection It’s all of Diablo 3 in one perfect package. It plays very well both docked and mobile, with great control methods and no frame rate drops. Very well suited to “pick up and play”. It’s a great couch co-op game.
#RingFitAdventure Not as easy as I thought it would be. Exercises can be tough at times, which is a good thing. Along with adventure mode, it has a host of mini-games and exercises & even an offline mode, where you use the ring and it records your actions to get your in-game XP
#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
#Zumba #Burnitup Another great way to get your heart rate up. Really catchy tunes, which is what this is all about in the end. Easy to pick up and play. Not sure I was always doing the exact right moves, but I had fun. Content feels a little lacking after a while
#Control enjoyable supernatural title, with an engaging but odd story with some great Easter eggs, graphics & voice acting. Great environment traversal & interesting upgrades. Very long load times. Frame rate is abysmal, making the game virtually unplayable at times. Consider waiting until they fix this before buying
#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
#Wargroove An incredibly cute and well-made reimagining of the old and formerly Nintendo-exclusive Advance Wars series that doesn’t drown you in complexity like many turn-based strategy games do
