Far Cry New Dawn Review
Far Cry 5 was a satisfying adventure, from its vast open-world journey across the rural landscape of Hope County, Montana to its central conflict against maniacal cult leader Joseph Seed. However, its conclusion left the game open with dangling plot threads. Ubisoft has seized the opportunity for a resolution with a direct sequel Far Cry New Dawn.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Legacy of the Lost Blade, Episode 1 - Hunted Review
The added lore is a welcome addition in the episode but what Hunted boils down to is this: if what you want is to spend three more hours doing the same things you did for sixty hours, then Legacy of the Lost Blade’s first episode is a success on all fronts.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Review
Hot off the heels of Assassin’s Creed Origins, Ubisoft brings its stealth, action-adventure series to the captivating world of ancient Greece with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. This latest installment enhances its predecessor’s RPG elements and offers players more agency in developing the main character. In fact, choice is one of the game’s core highlights. You are able to alter fate and influence numerous outcomes through dialogue choices and key decisions.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle: Donkey Kong Adventure Review
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle was a surprisingly fun strategy game that blended the Mushroom Kingdom with Ubisoft’s raving Rabbids. Less than a year after its initial release, the game has returned with the new DLC expansion Donkey Kong Adventure, introducing Nintendo’s beloved ape into the fray.
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.
For Honor Review
Distilled way down to one-on-one medieval combat, For Honor is both instinctual and smart. It's bloody and entertainingly over-the-top, but much more than a button-masher. It's a game that repays thoughtful practice. It looks impressive, with believably gritty textures and tons of detail in the armor, weapons, and environment. It's a shame, then, that so much good will was squandered on the less appealing margins of the game, with pay-to-win systems, poor match making, and a throwaway single player campaign. With lots of time -- or cash -- to spare, playing For Honor is a rewarding action experience that doesn't feel like anything else on the market right now.
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.
Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India
If you weren't won over by AC Chronicles: China, AC Chronicles: India probably won't change your mind. But if you want a game with some solid stealth gameplay and a sizeable smattering of timed, platforming bits, you probably won't be too disappointed (the low price of admission also helps). It's unfortunate, but I think using the phrase "you probably won't be too disappointed" is an apt way of describing AC Chronicles: India. It's a short, three to four hour romp that you can safely pretend never happened.
