    Would be a 9.5 if one could swap out the remastered music for the original music!

    The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

    Would be a 9.5 if one could swap out the remastered music for the original music!

    The limitations of Game Boy's control scheme made this game rather cumbersome to play, although it's an awesome game! This remake is a great improvement without making the game way easier than it was intended to be. It's... Read Full Review

    Judgment

    takes all the best from Yakuza, and greatly improves it

    Yakuza Kiwami 2 was a really good game, but it did get repetitive, the storyline meh, and the mechanics cumbersome (like lacking shortcuts, not being able to skip individual lines of dialog like in Witcher 3). Yakuza 0 h... Read Full Review

    Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda

    innovative, tight gameplay, maybe best 3rd party spinoff game ever

    How they managed to make a good spinoff Nintendo character spinoff with a 3rd party, this is the only way! The gameplay is tight, the music is catchy, and it balances retro with gameplay virtually entirely new (I say "vi... Read Full Review

    Heyy From Software, haven't seen you in a while!! Ohhhhh.

    That was the feeling I got when I started. I've played DS3 and its DLCs for over 200 hours, Bloodborne and its DLCs for 170, and Nioh for 150. I've also beaten DS1 and DS2 as well. This game might look like all of them, ... Read Full Review

    I've played all of the New Super Mario Bros. games from the original to this, and they've all been pretty solid. However, the music in the games' underground, castle, and fortresses seem to be stuck in a time warp. A big... Read Full Review

    hard to use controls ruin what could've been a decent game

    I've played all the 3D GTA console games, Witcher 3 and all SoulsBorne, so at the very least I expected easy to use, fun to play controls from this AAA long-hyped title. This game doesn't even meet the hype on that. Movi... Read Full Review

    Horizon Zero Dawn

    an SJW attempt of a Witcher mimic. Poor controls, boring environs, but great hype

    If you've played the Witcher 3, do not bother playing this game. It basically attempts to mimic the loot system, the fighting system, and the character interactions but with an SJW/3rd wave feminist twist. The characters... Read Full Review
