Hi-Fi Rush PC Review

So, Hi-Fi Rush just shadow dropped out of nowhere, with little to no marketing behind it. It just kind of released. Developed by Tango Gameworks the studio behind The Evil Within, The Evil Within 2 and Ghostwire Tokyo, comes this surprise. Is it worth it? Well, I’ve finished the campaign, and then some, which took me around 13 hours and here are my thoughts.  Continue reading Hi-Fi Rush PC Review

Dwarf Fortress Premium PC Review

Dwarf Fortress has been around since 2006 and I’ve actually been wanting to try it for years, but the ASCII visuals combined with the complexity of the game was somewhat of a deterrent. Although I did consider using a skin pack, I never got around to actually playing it. To my surprise though, a Steam premium version was released with mouse control, a UI and a visual overhaul, so this seemed like a perfect opportunity for me to finally try the game.

Crisis Core FFVII Reunion PC Review: Zany Zack Fun

In the first ten minutes of this remastered Crisis Core, I somersaulted onto a train, dodged bullets, slashed a behemoth to pieces, and clashed swords with the infamous Sephiroth. This game knows how to have absurd and quirky fun from start to finish. What a joyous contrast to so many ‘mature’ games of this age, a palette cleanser for all those preachy games. Continue reading Crisis Core FFVII Reunion PC Review: Zany Zack Fun

The Callisto Protocol PC Review

I’m a massive fan of the Dead Space series, and with Visceral having been closed down by EA, there was little hope of a new game in that franchise. When I found out that Glen Schofield and several other people from Visceral started a new studio and began production on The Callisto Protocol, I was excited. A spiritual sequel to Dead Space, perhaps? Well, it sure looked that way from the trailers. Continue reading The Callisto Protocol PC Review

Sonic Frontiers PC Review

Most of you are probably aware of the Sonic cycle, right? If not a quick primer: Step 1. Sega shows tidbits of a new entry in the franchise, lack of new friends (or perhaps annoying ones) in promotional materials, people who are deluded get hopes up. Step 2. Revealed that annoying or stupid looking new friends are in fact in the game, gameplay looks garbage-tier, hopes dashed. Step 3. Game releases, it’s smashed by critics as junk. Continue reading Sonic Frontiers PC Review

Tactics Ogre: Reborn Review: Timeless but Tedious

Have you ever adored a game but knew you couldn’t recommend it to most people? That is Tactics Ogre: Reborn. I’m brokenhearted because the game is near perfection from a narrative perspective. The story is timeless, the dialogue is sharp, and the voice work is excellent. However, the weighty tale is dragged to the depths by clunky controls, artificial difficulty, and incredibly tedious gameplay. Continue reading Tactics Ogre: Reborn Review: Timeless but Tedious

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered PC Review

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, another Playstation exclusive, has finally arrived on PC. When the game originally launched, it got a lot of positive reactions, so I was quite excited to get my hands on it. I also wanted to see whether its PC version would be polished or not. So, here are my thoughts after fully completing the campaign and all of its DLCs. Continue reading Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered PC Review

Sniper Elite 5 PC Review

I’ve always been a fan of the Sniper Elite franchise since the release of the original game in 2005. I played its second and third parts years ago, and its fourth part about two weeks prior to the release of SE5 (so that I could make an apt comparison between the two). And in a nutshell, and to no one’s surprise, it’s more Sniper Elite, but with a few tweaks and changes. Continue reading Sniper Elite 5 PC Review
