Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint Review

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint blurs the line between a singular, well-defined approach to the tactical shooter and a whole mess of other games, and the result is a loss of identity with little gained in the process.

Judgment Review

Judgment is an absolute roller coaster of an experience that I can wholeheartedly recommend. It’s an intense investigative adventure full of drama, action, and heart. If this is the direction where the Yakuza series is headed to, I have high hopes for the future.

Generation Zero Review

The game needs to grow on you, became a world away from you where you want to go back to, find the people who are missing and get rid of those pesky robots and trace the mystery to its roots. Thus, Generation Zero is oddly rewarding in its casual and non-commercial integrity.

Mugsters Review

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: The Frozen Wilds Review

In the end, Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds does what every good DLC should set out to do: give players more of what they love.

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.

Tom Clancy's The Division

Whether or not this strategy pays off is solely up to the player themselves, but for me, the reliance on convention rather then tackling the subjects raised makes me question whether or not I will continue to explore the world Ubisoft is allowing us to play in.

Far Cry Primal

But the lingering feeling like you’ve done all of this before never left me throughout my time with the game. And for a game that’s supposed to take place over 10,000 years ago that’s a problem.

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.

Saints Row: Gat out of Hell

If you loved Saints Row IV, you will love Gat out of Hell. There's plenty of content here and even though much hasn't changed, playing as Johnny Gat in Hell translates to a humorous adventure with exaggerated gameplay elements that only Saints Row can deliver.

Watch Dogs

Watch Dogs is far and away the best game to released for the new consoles. It's overflowing with incredible content to be enjoyed and the beautiful city of Chicago to explore. This game could be the start of a truly incredible franchise.
