The most striking thing about Mugsters is the feeling of isolation it gives you. There’s no dialogue, just a hypnotic, low-key musical score. There aren’t any real characters, just you, some faceless alien enemies, and a few nameless humans that they’ve captured, all in an empty polygonal style.
Far Cry 5 Review
The Far Cry series is known for its exotic locations and maniacal villains, but its latest installment brings the action to the rural landscape of fictional Hope County, Montana. Far Cry 5 tells the story of Joseph Seed, leader of the cult “Project at Eden’s Gate” and megalomaniac who believes God has empowered him to save mankind from an imminent catastrophe known as the Collapse. Joseph’s three siblings, the “Heralds,” have taken over the three county regions, and the task lies on a rookie deputy, the player’s customized avatar, to liberate Hope County.
Horizon Zero Dawn Review
I absolutely loved this game. I think it’s a fantastic adventure full of amazing experiences to be had and fully recommend it to anyone who owns a Playstation 4. And yet it does feel like the first game in a series that needs to discover its own unique identity to help it stand out amongst a vast array of open world games that it competes against.
Watch Dogs 2 Review
The game is opened up just enough to allow for the insane to happen and when it does Watch Dogs 2 really shines. It’s not a momentous step forward for the franchise but anyone sitting on the sideline worried that Ubisoft slept on the criticism of the first, fret not, Watch Dogs 2 is a better game in every way from its predecessor.
Just Cause 3
Just Cause 3 is fun, no doubt about it. As an open world game, it balances nicely the need for structure and freedom. You can treat it like a playground or you can focus on mainlining the story, the triteness of which is redeemed by its engaging characters. It asks the player to do a handful of things over and over, but at least offers a truly wide berth in accommodating solutions. Like an action movie marathon, the busy energy of it can become wearying, but in most ways, Just Cause 3 is, quite literally, a blast.
