Graphically it’s also unimpressive considering the engine it’s using whereas the gameplay is simply uninspired, tiresome and dull. The ability to see searchable objects by shining a glow-stick in their general direction was annoying as it makes them glow all over with patterns and symbols which completely broke the immersion for me from very early on in the game. Things like that should be saved for something actually important or impressive, not just for drawers and tables. If you want a real survival horror then find something else because this one is not worth your time.
Child of Light
Child of Light is one of the most enjoyable and beautiful games I’ve played so far in 2014. It’s bursting with charm and had me grinning from ear to ear for its ten hour story. My only hope is this isn’t the last we see of Aurora and this beautiful world. If you haven't yet gone on the Child of Light journey I implore you to stop reading now and go play this game. For $15 your not going to find a better value all year.
With its fair share of problems, both large and small, Basement Crawl isn’t nearly enough to scratch anyone’s itch for Bomberman. In fact, the easiest thing to do would be to track down a copy of Bomberman and play that instead. In this era of consoles that emphasize online connectivity and interactivity, gamers have a well earned expectation that online games will work at launch. Basement Crawl has been out for just over a month and still suffers from crippling online issues. Not a good sign.
Angry Birds Star Wars
If it were priced competitively, Angry Birds Star Wars for the PS4 might be recommendable. However, at $50, it appears to be an attempt to take advantage of the PS4 early adopters who are desperate to find something to play. There are a lot of worthy ways for you to spend your $50, and there are a lot more legitimate excuses to turn on your PS4.
