Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate (PS4) Review

Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate

So in between Outer Worlds and Resident Evil 3 Remake I played through Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate. Now, often Warriors games are pretty crazy, but given the premise of this game can be summed up as “Odin faces off with Zeus as a group of Three Kingdoms era Chinese warriors and some Samurai from the Japanese Sengoku period get caught in the middle”, this might take the cake. Bloody fun though! Let’s take a closer look…

Resident Evil 3: Remake (PS4) Review

RE3 Remake

This all happened rather quickly (I still have one more PS4 game that I played before this to review, I guess that’ll be next week…), but that’s RE3 for you! Much like last year’s Resident Evil 2 Remake, the RE3 remake here is a stunning looking and easier to play recreation of the original game (once again already reviewed on this blog), but unlike the 2nd REmake this has some flaws, and doesn’t faithfully recreate the original 1-to-1. Is it still worth a play? Let’s find out!

The Outer Worlds (PS4) Review

The Outer Worlds

What happens when Fallout has a child with Borderlands? Super Mario Bros. 3! Ha… ha… no, wait… that’s not right. The Outer Worlds! That’s the one! Seriously, The Outer Worlds is just the Bethesda Fallout engine in all but name, with the style and colour pallet more in-line with Borderlands. That being said, those two franchises are great, so this game’s great as well, right?

WWF War Zone (PS1 / N64) Review

WWF Warzone

Guess who finally has more free time to return to the Wrestling Game Rundown? … Well, me, obviously, and while I wish the “more time” aspect would’ve come for a happier reason than the whole world shutting down, I shall take this opportunity regardless! So War Zone is the start of a four-game series using the same engine, one that I have sort-of fond memories of, but they always fell to the AKI engine N64 games in the long run each year. Still, this game was the first to have a proper Create-a-Wrestler, so there’s that! Let’s take a look then…

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey (PS4) Review

AC Odyssey

It’s been a little while since I posted a game review, so let’s see if we can catch up with the last few games I’ve played, starting with this! Assassin’s Creed is one of those game series I’ve been playing since the very first entry, and while the series stalled a few releases ago, Origins and especially Odyssey have really clawed the series back up to something truly worth playing… If you have 100 hours spare…

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (PS4) Review

SW Jedi Fallen Order

Hey, hey: listen to this, right – “Jedi: Fallen Order is the Dark Souls of Star Wars games”. Real original, right? Well, the thing is, it really is the Dark Souls of Star Wars games. Many of the mechanics of the Souls games are present here, and while it’s not as hard as Souls (which given it’s a Star Wars game, is probably for the best) it really did have to be said. Still, I really liked the game and loved the story it told, so let’s get to it!

Resident Evil – Code: Veronica / X (Dreamcast / PS2) Review

RE Code Veronica

So after a short detour, we resume our look at the core Resident Evil game timeline thanks to the on-going Live Action Movie to Game Marathon, though at this point the games and movies have very little in common! Really, I should have just reviewed Code: Veronica X on the PS2, but I played through the Dreamcast version several times back in the day, but only played through X once (for the sake of the new cutscenes) so I felt I had to include it as well. That means I’ll be looking at both, and with the differences being so minimal it doesn’t really matter. Let’s take a look!

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon (PS2) Review

MK Armageddon

When it comes to the sequels to movies, which often begin to follow their own continuity, I thought I’d review another entry in the game series rather than stick rigidly to the release sequence (plus, let’s face it, my review of Mortal Kombat 2 would be pretty damn similar to my review of MK1!) Therefore we have Mortal Kombat: Armageddon reviewed alongside Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, two MK:A’s, but vastly different in how much fun you can get out them… Let’s have a look!

Mega Man 10 (PS3) Review

MM10

So, I’ve finally done it. I’ve played through all 10 Mega Man g- oh, right… During the course of the marathon Mega Man 11 was released… Still, I set out to play through all 10 original series Mega Man games that were released at the time, and I’ve accomplished that much at least! Thankfully MM10 ends the run on a high note, fixing pretty much everything I disliked about 9 and providing a really fun experience. So let’s take a look!

Mega Man 9 (PS3) Review

Mega Man 9

Mega Man 9 was a weird experience for me, given I’ve been playing through the series from MM1 in the last year and a bit, therefore the nostalgia was wasted on me because it felt like the games I played a few months ago, rather than years ago! While I have some issues with just how far they rolled the game system back, not to mention how unfairly difficult it was at times, I still had more fun with this than the previous entry, that’s for sure! Let’s take a closer look, then, shall we?
