One of the most surprising games I can remember 0

When I did pick this game up, I expected to be just a normal Mario Tennis game, where you can play with all the characters from the Mario universe in tournaments of various difficulties and lenghts. And boy was I surprised by what I encountered here.This game makes you start with a complete new character, a normal human being, not related to the Mario universe. Putting you into a full story-focused-RPG-tennis game. That's just amazing, what a great idea and execution. The story is well written, ...

The Last Great Game Bioware Made 0

Dragon Age: Inquisition is the third game in one of my favorite franchises. Done by one of the best developers in the business when it comes to create an RPG and make you care for the world they create. The game takes place after the previous two and it has its problems, but it's still one of the best western RPGs we have out there.It may not have the best story, sometimes it has weird pacing, but it's better then I expected after the reputation it got. But you'll not get the best experience pos...

An Amazing Battle Royale Experience 0

When PUBG first came out, I loved it. Played it for 100+ hours, but didn't think it was game of the year material. Then I pretty much hated every other BR game that came out after that, I hate the building in Fortnite and I thought it was way too hard to kill in Blops 4 (and FPS is the genre I played the most in my life). The reason I didn't stuck to PUBG for another year, was that I don't like the 3rd person camera, makes it possible for people to see you without you see them, and the FPS serve...

A great entry on a underrated series 0

Initially titled "F-Zero 64", F-Zero X is the second game on the F-Zero series, and the first one to have 3D graphics. A very well liked but not that big of a franchise, in my opinion is still underrated, specially looking back at how fun the games were and how little people paid attention to them compared to other big series. This game gives you 3 Grand Prix and 6 machines to choose from, at the start, as well as four difficulties to pick. And at the end you will have 30 machines, and a extra G...

Solidifying A Genre 0

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night was the first game of the series to move on from a linear action-platformer to a more exploration based style of game. Similar to what we got from Super Metroid, having a lot of back tracking, making you open a new path each time you got a new ability/upgrade, becoming the genre we know now as Metroidvania(the combination of the two names).In this game you play as Alucard, the son of Dracula. It's a direct sequel to Rondo of Blood, the first level of this game...

Starting out strong! 0

I came late to the Fire Emblem franchise, and decided to start with the first one, even more then a decade later. And I was really impressed by how it's still an amazing game that holds up well.The character diversity is really well made, I can't remember any other franchise with as many types of combinations for characters, classes and their weapons, that still feel balanced for the grand majority of it. I liked how they split the story mode, and how they made the presentation, moving from chap...

A strange and charming little game 0

Donut County is a pretty weird game, it's really short (around 2 hours of gameplay max), it has a simple idea: you control a hole on the ground, and your job is to put that hole under things to swallow them, each time you get something inside, the hole increases, giving you more options to swallow next. Between levels, the story has some really charming and funny dialogue.Most of the game takes place deep down on earth, where the characters (animals) accuse BK of putting them there with his donu...

A fine and charming little game, in a big genre 0

Iconoclasts is a 16-bit 2D Action-Platformer, focused on puzzle and exploration. It has a really cool look to it, very charming, having a lot of dialogue, with some character to its design. The game has a Metroid-like map for you to go around and explore, in a futuristic setting, where you are placed in the shoes of Robin, a young girl who is a mechanic, and lives in a alien world where the authorities despise that line of work. The story is actually pretty deep, but it loses itself on how deep ...

A Retro Homage to Ninja Gaiden 0

The Messenger is a 2D Action-Platformer inspired by the Ninja Gaiden games from the NES era, with really tight controls and cool level design. It's starts really strong with it's linear progression, and it kind of loses momentum at the middle of it, when it tries to give the game a cool twist.The idea and the presentation behind that twist is simply amazing, I kept thinking "how did nobody thought about this?". The graphics as well as the music are what gives the game its charm and personality,...

A Masterpiece that could've been even better 0

The second Red Dead Redemption might be the hardest game to talk about. Because it's so impressive, the production value, the dept, the performances, the game just looks amazing. But it doesn't have the best controls, or one of the best gameplays, while sometimes is too slow or repetitive. But still, the story of Arthur Morgan is one that will be remembered for the ages.I love how Rockstar made us feel that the story arc in the game is personal, they give some characters with big personalities, ...

What a tremendous little Game 0

I don't even know what to talk about when it comes to Celeste. The game is a incredible Platformer that tells the story of Madeline, as she has to deal with anxiety and some other problems that you see throughout the game. The main thing I can say is: Just go play this game, unless you don't like platformers, just do yourself a favor and pick this up.The controls are some of the thigest that I've ever seen, the level design is perfect, the pace is great, you'll die a bunch, because the game is r...

A Decent Entry in a Great Series 0

Mega Man 11 grabs the traditional Mega Man formula and tries a couple of different things with it. As a long time Mega Man fan, I wasn't thrilled about all of it, but it still was a fun experience.The first and noticeable change with the 11th game is the Double Gear system, a power that you start with, for story reasons. You have three ways to use these systems, you can slow time, you can increase the power of your blasts or you can use both, but without being able to stop it. The bomber has a h...

A nice throwback to the 80s 0

Alwa's Awakening is a action-platformer game, with some metroidvania elements, made in a 8-bit style graphics. It highly resembles an NES game, with modern days polish and resolution. The game is pretty simple, but at the same time clever. It doesn't try anything that different from the games it gets inspiration from, having very familiar level designs and controls. It takes around 8 hours to complete a very traditional story of exploring the world and fighting enemies to get 4 items that look l...

The Ultimate Battlefield Game, right? 0

First of all let me say, I really like this game, it's the best feeling Battlefield game ever. The running and shooting has never been this good, and I'm a big FPS player, this game is on another level when it comes to that. But that said, I can't give it 5 stars because it launched too rough around the edges, with a number of bugs, things like trying to respawn on a unfortunate time, trying to quit games or having the menu open when the match starts, and a absurdly horribly balanced map for con...

A decent take on what now became a genre 0

The Surge is a souls-like game, set in a futuristic world where kind of an apocalipse happened. In a sense of a mega corporation that produces robots couldn't handle their sh*t, making machines and ciborgs go crazy. It's a very interesting setting, and it's very well done, the game has a great start to it, in my opinion, but it takes too long to pick up the interesting parts in the middle/end. The game has Metroidvania elements and doesn't tell you exactly what to do or where to go next, kind of...

A very tactical little game 0

Into the Breach it's a really well done game, it accomplishes a very clever try on a type of puzzle-strategic gameplay.You have a squad of three mechs, and you place them on a 8x8 board where you have to fight for survival and defend the civilization, which are you source of energy. Each mission adds a twist as side-mission for you to earn extra rewards. The game is a roguelike (or roguelite, whatever), where the plot tries to make sense of the gameplay loop, you are a type of special forces tha...

A messy but fun metroidvania 0

Sundered is a 2D Metroidvania that came out around the same time as games like Hollow Knight and Dead Cells, making it be quickly forgettable by the community. I first saw Dan playing it on a Quick Look and thought it didn't look great. But then the game became available on Origin Access and decided to give it a shot. I ended up liking the game quite alot, had a lot of fun with it.The game has some combat problems, the number of enemies you can have on screen is absurd and it can quickly just be...

I'm not quite sure what it is 0

Fe is a very weird 3D platformer, you are a type of little fox-ish creature in a very dark forest with some bad stuff happening that the game doesn't really explain that well. You can comunicate with other animals through music, you can learn different types of languages (musical) to keep increasing the number of species that you can comunicate with. You help them and gain their trust to become close, receiving their help to progress. Each type of song can unlock a type of plant that has differe...

A fun little game 0

The idea of putting Plants and Zombies in war against each other is very funny, and that was what Plants vs Zombies did with first in the series, that was a tower defense game. Now they give us a full multiplayer 3rd person shooter, with different modes and a big variety in classes and skins for each character in each team.For the whole time that I've played Garden Warfare PvP I had a smile in my face, it's fresh and unique, compared to the other multiplayer shooters we have. But I didn't felt t...

The disappointment of the generation? 0

Mass Effect Andromeda was full of bugs when it came out, with some horrible face expressions and lighting display. But then they patched it alot, how it's now? Well, it's still bad. At least compared to the rest of the series and some other triple A games from the same year.The game has a really weird start that didn't grabbed me one bit. It keeps making you guess for whats going on, with a few moments that felt rushed, but at the same time it takes a really long time to pick up, on the gameplay...

One of the most underappreciated Games I've played 2

First let me start with the negative and why I didn't gave it 5 stars. The game has some technical problems, for instance, alot of the cutscenes have focus problems and stays blurry for most of it. As well as while you're walking through the city at night the lights keep poping on and off, what was weird. And the enemy variety could've been deeper for the amount of fighting the game has.That said, I love this game. I don't understand why people that liked Origins hated it so much. I love how the...

One of the all-time great First Person Shooters 0

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 did one of the rarest things a video game can do. While being a direct sequel to a masterpiece and revolutionary game, was albe to keep the same amazing level and even improve the formula in some aspects. It's one of the best first person shooters of all time, without question.The game kept what Call of Duty 4 started, the multiplayer with lots of loadout options and killstreaks to choose from. They added also the deathstreak, so players that couldn't perform that ...

The last piece to one of the greatest trilogies in gaming 0

Mass Effect 3 continues the story arc from the first two games, you're all in to what could be the last war of your cycle. The game keeps improving on the gameplay feel from the previous games, while changing some aspects of customization to equipment and upgrades. The experience from player to player will vary depending on what happened on your playthrough of the second game. I saw alot of people complaining of the amount of "coincidence" meet ups that the game presents. But in my case, not tha...

An underappreciated game 0

Titanfall 2 is a really special game. How the devs implemented the movement of your character on the level design was so smart and well done. It felt great to jump, slide and wall run while you were shooting at bad guys. How much character they gave to B.T. was a great surprise as well, I really enjoyed all the dialogue between the pilot and his titan.The story has some amazing moments that make the game feel on the higher tier of the first person shooters we have. Never feeling repetitive with ...

The best place Spider-Man ever was 0

Marvel's Spider-Man, developed by Insomniac, had a very big buzz to it before it came out, and everybody who had played it previously liked alot. My expectations were high, and still I didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I did. It's amazing, very well put together. Spider-Man is one of my favorite superheroes, being such a relatable character. This game makes it even better with the presentation of the chracters, if feels so real, especially the dialogues between Peter and MJ, or Peter and ...

A new take on a Indiana Jones type of adventure 0

The first Uncharted is mostly recognized as the weakest of the series, and I can see why. I really don't like how the game starts, you go from opening a casket to just being a serial killer soon after, and Elena has no idea what type of person you are, but it looks like you can kill any group of man that the game throws at you. That's my main criticism with the game, it's just too much meaningless shooting. You just keep killing waves of enemies that don't even make sense, they could easily redu...

Any source of energy it's also well designed, the enemies despite not having enough variety are really well made also.The main change this game goes for, compared to the rest of the series, is its pace.

A great new idea from Microsoft 0

Gears of War took the world by storm at the time it came out. The graphics looked so amazing and being a new ip was really impressive. But I didn't enjoy as much as most people, I still think it was amazing, but it could be ever better.It had some fps dips at a few parts of the game, the story could be a little bit deeper from the jump. The gameplay doesn't make you change your strategy very much and sometimes it feels a bit random, you can get instantly killed by an attack and later survive to ...

Red Dead Redemption creates a very believable world, where you take the place of John Marston, a former gang member who had a tough childhood and went one to make some bad decisions. He needs to cooperate with the government to make sure he clears his name and protect his family.The gameplay is basically Grand Theft Auto in a old western america, and I love me some GTA. But RDR has become my favorite Rockstar game, it has a unique setting and story, that most other open world games don't have.Yo...

A Bioware masterpiece 0

Mass Effect 2 feels like a very personal game, it makes you care about your crew members by having amazing dialogue options and writing, with so really great voice acting for a video game at its time.You start right after the end of the first game, and some things go wrong, making Sherpard go into a coma for 2 years. When he wakes up, he discovers that the people who saved him are from Cerberus, which is a independent company who were kind of one of the bad guys in the first game. But they have ...

The first 3D Action-Adventure masterpiece 0

Ocarina of Time was the new benchmark for action-adventure games at the time, it created a new standart that it was impossible to think any game would do it again.When the game started I wasn't so sure of how good it would be, the games strenght was in its dungeons, having some real cool puzzles and sense of discovery.But then, the master sword + time sequence happen (I won't spoil) and the game completely blew me away. It changed even the gameplay, but most amazingly, the new setting, giving a ...

I loved Secret of Mana already, as it was. And this game improved alot on it, with a better pace for the combat, character customization, giving you the ability to distribute your skill points as you wish, on whatever you want to focus.But the main thing about this game is the fact that at the beginning of the game, you have a choice between 6 characters, and you have to pick 3 of them, one main character and two side-kicks. And each character has its origin, its hometown, its motivations. Telli...

One of the most influential games of allt ime 0

I'm just amazed by this game, how could they make a style of open world game in 1996? It's incredible, the evolutions in the graphic department and with the controls, having the analog stick on the N64, was great.Most of the time, the 3D games from that era don't hold up, but that doesn't happen with this one. You can play this game today and see how great it is, so just imagine how great it was at the time. I only played a couple of hours at the time it came out, but recently went back to beat ...

Hollow Knight is the true modern metroidvania game, it's fresh, with really tight controls and it gives that atmospheric sense just like Super Metroid at its time. It's not hard to get lost in this dark world, full of intriguing bugs and curious places. The game is so rich in content and unexplored lore, the deeper I went into Hollow Knight, the more I was surprised at just how much content and freedom it has to offer.The main hook of the game is the traditional way of the genre: New movement ab...
