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.

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.

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

God of War PC Review: First-Rate Fatherhood

God of War is a masterpiece that achieves near perfect synergy between narratively meaningful story segments, creatively brutal combat encounters, and immersive world exploration. It is a must-play, an essential game worthy of overwhelming praise. Before I gush some more, let me get personal with you. Continue reading God of War PC Review: First-Rate Fatherhood
