Life Is Strange 2 Episode 3, "Wastelands" Review
We’ve reached the climax of Life Is Strange 2 and the rollercoaster ride down is liable to be a rocky one. This is definitely one of the better episodes in the game because there’s real danger here. Sean and Daniel have been doing pretty OK for themselves but this is the first time things felt truly unpredictable.
Planet Alpha Review
Planet Alpha was a polarizing game for me. It’s probably one of the most gorgeous games to come out this year and there wasn’t one location on the planet that didn’t elicit some sort of awed verbal response. The platforming gameplay, however, leaves much, much more to be desired.
Ys Origin Review
As its title suggests, Ys Origin serves as prequel to the long-running Ys JRPG-series. It takes place 700 years prior to the events of the other games, in the world of Ys ruled by two Goddesses Reah and Feena. For many years Ys lived in peace and harmony until suddenly it all changed when an influx of demons arrived in the land.
Hitman Episode 1: Paris
Killing hasn't been this fun since Blood Money. Despite the technical issues, Hitman is off to a promising start to the "season". The smooth controls, beautiful visuals, and incredibly detailed level design does a solid job in bringing the world's deadliest assassin to current generation consoles.
Castle Crashers Remastered
Castle Crashers Remastered still manages to keep the charm that made the game so special 7 years ago. The game still falls victim to some of the same flaws, but is so enjoyable to play that those smaller shortcomings are easily overlooked. Whether you're coming back to the game for a second time or you're a new player, this is a game that has something to offer for everyone.
Spectra is an average, straightforward racer that’s easy enough to grasp. And yet, it comes off as half finished. The scope of the game is small and narrow, the slinky control scheme could use some tweaking, and the levels beg for more variety. At its best, Spectra is little more than an endless runner that would have a happy home on iOS/Android devices. Additional obstacles and differences in level design would go a long way to give Spectra the character it sorely needs. Until that happens, spend your money on the soundtrack instead.
