"I wouldn't have expected a top-down game with this sort of art style to be as effectively creepy as it is. Excellent atmosphere and sound design especially. The night-time segments aren't quite as tense as they're supposed to be. It's pretty easy to make sure you're always well prepared for nightfall and what follows is a lot of dull waiting interspersed with the occasional intense moment"
45 19% Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath (2005) - Sep 22, 2020
"The inciting incident arrives far too late. I didn't feel any motivation to continue playing because I just didn't find the gameplay particularly fun and there isn't much else to it"
45 19% Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee (2001) - Sep 22, 2020
"Rating based on the two hours played while drunk. Awful controls and handling, fun aesthetic and interesting but overly familiar world. The emphasis on all-out quirk is both admirable and a little too much"
75 79% Assassin's Creed Origins (2017) - Sep 10, 2020
"Sliding down the side of a pyramid was a childhood fantasy of mine, and this game fulfilled it. That alone earns this game a thumbs up in my book."
65 60% Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout (2020) - Sep 06, 2020
"It's a decent play-on-mute-while-listening-to-podcasts kind of game"
100 99% The Last of Us Part II (2020) - Jun 22, 2020
"Nothing is played safe; likely the most daring narrative decisions in video games and without a doubt the most powerful, uncompromising interactive experience on a thematic level I have ever played. The heavy focus on complex themes and deeply rooted character work will surely leave some players angered or upset, but that is a risk Neil Druckmann and Naughty Dog are clearly willing to take and the game is all the better for it. This is something special. Story debate https://youtu.be/rf7JWMkzvHY"
61 54% Metro Exodus (2019) - Jun 16, 2020
"I respect the guts to evolve as a series. I loved exploring the hub worlds + the way the more scripted moments were interspersed. I wouldn't call this a step backward at all, but there is certainly way more frustrating BS than the previous games. My playthrough was quite glitchy; the movement speed is fine for traversal, I appreciate the slower pace but the sluggish movements hamper combat; the load times are ridiculous on PS4, long conversations play out with everyone just standing still, etc."
50 26% Hollow Knight (2017) - Jun 06, 2020
"I can see the merit. Not my kind of thing."
75 79% Call of Duty: WWII (2017) - Jun 06, 2020
"Not interested in the multiplayer so that does not factor into my score. I played one zombies match that lasted over an hour and I got bored with it before the end. The campaign was quite enjoyable though. The story isn't anything special, but by Call of Duty standards, I was blown away just by virtue of there being actual characters with real arcs. The graphics are truly stunning at times."
50 26% Get Even (2017) - Jun 01, 2020
"Crams together incongruous elements and is a tonal mess as a result"
