So out of the two games that arrived to my doorstep today, I figured that I needed something relaxing to play after a hard day of work. So choosing from between Mario Odyssey and The New Colossus, the result was obvious.
I've only played the opening hour so far, so not a whole lot. Gameplay wise it feels familiar, just more smoothened out...and visceral. Having an axe replace the knife as a melee weapon should say as much. Fortunately the gameplay isn't the only thing that steps it up.
The New Order was already playing around with a story that had a serious tone to it, with some dark humour splashed on to it every now and then, together with bombastic action. The New Colossus very much embraces that mixture and the whole opening is a rollercoaster of different emotions. I wouldn't be surprised if some people will find it jarring at one point, but I'm enjoying the grotesque display a whole lot and can't wait to see what they have in store, when the opening alone goes this crazy.
