Pixel Ripped 1995 is even better than the original and that’s saying a lot since that one was a great game in its own right. It brings even more wild moments and gameplay sequences that once again are only made possible thanks to virtual reality. It’s a perfect game to play to get lost in a world similar to one you may have grown up in or to see what it was like for the rest of us back then. This should be on every PlayStation VR owners to-buy list.
Whether you’ve played Saints Row: The Third before or not the work put into this remaster makes it pretty easy to recommend. If you want an over-the-top open world game to dive into then I think you’ll have a lot of fun with this one whether you play it solo or online with friends. Not everything about it has aged well but the fantastic work the team put into improving the visuals is commendable and makes it one of the best remasters around.
Maneater, in my opinion, is one of the surprise video game hits of 2020. While the mission variety runs out quick, I somehow never got tired of just swimming around and munching on things. Using the nutrients from doing that to upgrade my shark in new ways was addictive and going back to newly opened up areas was enjoyable.
I’ve been enjoying my time with Predator: Hunting Grounds but it leaves plenty of room for skepticism. For a $40 product it really lacks content right now and it needs further improvements in some key areas to be great. That said you can tell a lot of care went into making sure the Predator played great and that the game felt like the original movie. If you can get a good group together you can have a lot of fun with this one.
When I went in to review this game I didn’t know what to really expect out of it but I came out of it as a fan and as someone who hopes to see more Sakura Wars in the future. The combat is kind of mindless but I feel like the strong story and character development along with a great visual style and audio work makes up for it. There is room to improve but this Sakura Wars reboot left a great impression on me.
