Overall Red Dead Redemption 2 gets a 9/10, it is a blast to play with great attention to detail. Picking up your hat after a bar brawl, changing your equipment or shaving your beard all feel natural with some amazing flow between actions. Some missions are kind of boring, with some events forcing you down a certain path or telling you to take dishonourable acts when you could be wanting a more honourable playthrough.
So final thoughts, this is a great racer for the Nintendo Switch or any system you choose to buy the game on, with plenty to dig into. I found the learning curve was just about right, and there was plenty to unlock and achieve. I am hoping that the developers keep pumping out more tracks and content over time, even allow community created tracks if the sales are there, which they should be. I can truly say this game is well worth picking up.
It’s an interesting game that takes advantages of its strengths. From the decision making to the RPG elements, it blends well enough to keep you going for more. And even with a few hitches that makes some minor complaints, it goes through so much detail in the storytelling without it being overbearing and long to make you yawn. However, as a horror game, it doesn’t particularly give you the scare factor that others would. The multiple possible scenarios bear fruit a few endings as well. So will you embrace your fate or will you struggle until the end?
My Hero One’s Justice is a conundrum. The game has some great, fun, fast paced gameplay even though it’s rather one dimensional with button bashing. It has an excellent cast of characters and fans of the anime and manga franchise will love it. However, there’s just too much that’s gone wrong with a formula that worked so well for Bandai Namco’s other major shounen game series. Severely handicapping a player’s attack options is not a good choice.
The game’s story is lacking in places, is repetitive and lacks more variations of enemies so bear this in mind but remember it’s still fun. Starfox does seem like an afterthought and I would have loved to have seen this game as a pure Starfox game but Ubisoft and Nintendo clearly opted for something else. The planets are gorgeous and well-designed but sometimes do feel barren and unloved by wildlife. There is plenty to do, as the game should give you around 20 to 25hrs worth of playtime. Everything is voiced acted so there is no need to read anything, and there is so much depth to this game just like many other Ubisoft games, so there is plenty to dig into.
Overall, The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep gets a 7/10, it is an enjoyable adventure with engaging turn-based combat and puzzle solving but fails too harshly in other areas. Combat can become repetitive at certain points where you fight the same setup of enemies 5 times in a row when it doesn’t glitch out. Some puzzles are overly easy, while others are overtly vague without reason. The difficulty is great throughout, aside from some areas that take a drastic leap. The long list of glitches and bugs ruin an otherwise amazing experience as they plague every corner.
Overall The Amorous Adventures of Bold Sir Hans Capon gets a 5/10, sitting at around the same quality as the previous DLC. It is too short for the price tag and contains little to add into the original game, feeling like more of a patch or free update. Nothing new is added, besides some new dialogue and 2 small locations and carries with it the same amount of bugs as the base game. It does incorporate some more dice and alchemy into the experience, but it feels overall rushed and under polished. I would only recommend you get this DLC on offer.
In closing, I feel that EA SPORTS UFC 3 delivers a striking blow to the series. Despite falling short with the stale and clunky groundwork, some minor hit detection issues and the dreaded ‘Ultimate Team’ Micro transactions (which truthfully the career mode more than makes up for this) I feel that this is a standout game for anyone who likes the combat sport genre, however there is still major room for improvement.
All in all, it’s a game that simply goes above and beyond what normal fighting games do. From the overall aesthetic to the fluidity of its unique combat. The two-story modes offer unique experiences and online matches give the game value in replayability. And I’m probably a broken record at this point but Libra of Souls is definitely the star of the show as it encourages players to be creative while also experimental.
Overall, with a cast of over 170 characters to play as, an absolutely insane amount of character dialogue and an equally insane amount of enemies to slay, Warriors Orochi 4 will keep you busy for hours and hours on end. The story mode featuring missions that take anywhere from 7 to 20 minutes each to complete results in satisfying battle sessions that are rewarding. Gameplay is excellent despite being repetitive hack and slash based since it is quite simply, incredibly fun and implemented in a non-aggravating non-grindy manner. The sheer number of characters each with unique weapons makes Warriors Orochi 4 a must buy game for fans of the musou game genre and is quite easily one of the best fun games of 2018.
