    Definitely not for everyone

    The bottom line is that Divinity Original Sin 2 is heaven-on-earth for D&D fans and/or gamers that love experiences that involves zero hand-holding and an extremely 'shades of grey' narrative and ...

    Good story; generally average shooter

    The long story short is that The New Colossus is an average shooter (gameplay wise), with an above average story and characters. The ambiance of the setting is very well crafted and the characters/plo...

    More options but worse than its predecessor

    When I first saw reviews that claimed that Shadow of War was worse than Shadow of Mordor, most reasons were attributed to its microtransaction end-game and overall feeling of sloppiness. I found this ...

    Solid sequel that improves over the original

    When I first started WD2, it seemed like a stepback. The RC car was annoying and the tone was too lax. After finishing the entire game, however, I can say with confidence that this was a great improve...

    Solid creative fun

    Dishonored 2 is a solid fun game that stays true to the roots of what made Dishonored 1 a great experience. The levels design, puzzles, graphics, and power usage allows almost infinite replayability a...

    Very good -when it works-, which isn't often..

    Nier is a solid game, with fluid combat, a great story, and interesting game mechanics/characters. It also, however, has a terrible PC port that is pretty much unplayable.There are unofficial patches,...

    Not bad, but not memorable either

    FC: Primal isn't a bad game; it builds off the solid foundation of combat from the Far Cry series. The issue, however, is that it feels kind of like a lesser version of its sister-games. In general, ...

    Great once it came together

    I wasn't around for the release of this game, but from what I heard, it was a mess. Broken frame rates, crashes, terrible performance, and even saves getting deleted. For all who suffered through that...

    A beefed up version of Civ 5

    I'm by no means an expert or seasoned veteran of city building games. I enjoy them but play them somewhat superficially as I'm a terrible military strategist. I did enjoy Civ 5, and Civ 6 feels like m...

    Great brainless fun

    Subjectively, I really wanted to give this game a 9. But I knew I couldn't because despite how much fun I had playing this awesome game, there are some pitfalls that are hard to overlook.But it didn't...

    More of the good stuff

    The Tomb Raider series has been pretty solid as of late. The combat, settings, and upgrade systems are fun, and storylines/characters are decent enough to drive the plot along.Rise of the Tomb Raider ...

    A unique beast

    Doom is a unique game in that I'm assigning it a 9, even though it is 'technically' simple in design. The story isn't ground breaking, characters are meh, and it's pretty much just go to room A and ki...

    Its weaknesses are justified through its strengths

    Deus Ex HR is an interesting game in that it falls into my 'messy 9' rating score. That is, it belongs 'in 9' in my book, but that it is a fundamentally '8' game.The reason why is because of the somew...

    A different type of game than Dying Light

    Dead Island has always been different than Dying Light in nature, in that Dying Light focuses a lot more on mobility. This is a jab in multiple ways because when I first started playing Dead Island, m...

    Refreshing combination

    Danganronpa 1 and 2 were both great games that were thoroughly enjoyable because of their unique take of combining multiple attributes from other fun games. A dash of Persona 4, some Phoenix Wright, a...

    Something special is definitely here

    I had to actually struggle with assigning Dragon's Dogma an 8 or a 9. That alone is a testament to how great the game is, because I don't give 9s too often.Ultimately, what made me keep it an 8 is th...

    An interesting idea

    Banner Saga turned out to be a decent game. Not a great game, but not bad either.The combat system, lore, and general concept of the game (where your choices matter) comes together quite nicely. Proba...

    Hmm...I liked it?

    This game seems to be getting a lot of hate. I'm not exactly sure why, but then again, I never really fell into the 'typical' Assassins Creed crowd. Black Flag was a really impressive game, but I real...

    Basically a better version of XCOM1

    XCOM 2 has the benefit of having a very solid predecessor to build off of. XCOM1 had an interesting premise, with solid gameplay, character customization, and fun overall tactics. All XCOM2 had to do ...

    I started Fallout 4 incredibly underwhelmed. And i mean...-incredibly-. The game made an extremely strange decision of starting out the game with the most boring faction/characters of the entire story...
