Paul Tassi's Reviews

I write about video games full-time for Forbes, and I couldn't ask for a better job. I wasn't allowed to own a console until I was a teenager, so I've now compensated by playing them for a living. I usually favor shooters and action games, though I try to play a bit of everything. I own every console plus a gaming PC, and rarely a day goes by where I haven't written a few thousand words about video games. I also write books in my spare time, and have just finished my first sci-fi series, The Earthborn Trilogy.

9 / 10.0 - Borderlands 3
Sep 9, 2019

Borderlands 3 was worth the wait and will be a fixture in this genre for years to come. And I think few fans of the last two will be disappointed when they get their hands on it at last.

This is a big win for Massive, Ubisoft and players themselves.

7.3 / 10.0 - Anthem
Mar 4, 2019

Anthem may thrive. Anthem may fail. It has the bones to be something great but I am tired of saying that about so many games in this genre and five years after Destiny 1, I can’t believe we’re here yet again. Get it right the first time, because everyone is losing patience.

5 / 10.0 - Fallout 76
Nov 20, 2018

This is a huge, rare, total miss by Bethesda, and even if it’s improved in time, I can only judge it by the hours I’ve lost to it so far.

Again, it's more cake. Origins was delightful and Odyssey hits almost all the same notes, so there's a lot to like about it as well. But this series needs a bit of breathing room, and I hope it gets another bit of rest after this.

Assassin's Creed Origins improves from its past few installments in almost every way, yet it never quite reaches the heights of the games it tries to emulate.

9 / 10.0 - Destiny 2
Sep 18, 2017

While there's still room for improvement, and for this universe to live up to its full potential, Destiny 2 makes undeniable progress, and reinforces the idea that this is a series we'll be playing for at least an entire decade, when all is said and done.

7 / 10.0 - Agents of Mayhem
Aug 15, 2017

Agents of Mayhem is a strange game. I did enjoy much of my time with it, but I kept wishing it was a fully-fledged Saints Row sequel, not some alternate universe spin-off with less content. I didn't expect all that much going in, but by the end, I wanted more than I got.

8.5 / 10.0 - Prey
May 11, 2017

Prey has come out of relative nowhere to be a truly great campaign experience that succeeds despite some of the game's more muddled aspects. I'd recommend giving it a shot.

8.5 / 10.0 - Mass Effect Andromeda
Mar 20, 2017

I have a feeling that Mass Effect fans will enjoy the game, but I don't think anyone will claim it outclasses the original trilogy, outside of maybe the very first game. If you could combine the story and memorable quests of the originals with the combat, visuals and scope of Andromeda, you would have the perfect video game, though I think what's offered here will satisfy most.
