Final Fantasy XIII might be the most hated Final Fantasy game in a long time. However Final Fantasy XIII does have a few good ideas and fantastic game play.
In this retrospective review I look at the game with the whole Final Fantasy XIII Lightning Saga in mind as well as the localisation changes that were made and highly unnecessary.
Do I think Final Fantasy XIII is a bad game.. No, but it has issues, thankfully like I said in my Final Fantasy XIII-2 review, Square Enix do address some of these issues in later games
Going hands on with the latest installment of the Dragon Age series it’s clear that Bioware have been very aware of the fan feedback, especially in regards to Dragon Age 2. However there’s more changes here that will make players happy, especially when it comes to the differences the PC version of Origins had compared to the console version.
Attempting to recreate the jump in game play and overal game play experience of the original transition of Call of Duty 3 to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare; Advanced Warfare expands on the game play adding sci fi elements that make the potential for this game something rather special. The campaign still wants to force emotion down your throat however.
Microsoft was pushing Fable Legends big over the course of EGX, big floor stage shows, demos and merchandise everywhere. The game itself however looks to be quite a departure from the traditional Fable experience; as another spin off its interesting but the big grand adventure is still only being hinted at in favor of showing the multiplayerr co op vs evil player RTS experience.
The Leftfield Collection at EGX this year had a notible collection of gems and potential games you should be watching. The best of which is A Light In Chorus, a visual experience at the moment, due to the game being more of an alpha/test demo but potentially a visual mystery style visual experience and journey reminiscent of games like Flower and Proteus.
The first Lego game I’ve spend a lot of time playing in a while.. a lot has changed since the original Lego Star Wars games, not everything can be considered a change for better however as the demo seemed like a lesson in fustration
An overview of EGX and the games that were on display along with what the various companies present were bringing to the event that made it worth your time to check out if you attended.
The forthcoming board and online game is actually pretty fun, despite being online only in the beta version. Capturing footage wasn’t allowed but there was some publicly available footage usable for the video. Its shaping up to be a very interesting experience that non Witcher fans can enjoy.
Another JRPG that’s been out in Japan a while and comes out here in a few days. We already know its getting a sequel, but does the game deserve it? Im short yes.. it’s pretty much what Bravely Default is to Final Fantasy for the Tales of games.
The Legend of Zelda franchise takes a side step into the Dynasty Warriors style of game play in an all out attempt to cram as much fan service into a game while the actual Zelda game everyone wants is a few years off.. however it’s still awesome!
Being sent a rather diverse and expansive amount of games from developers looking for reviews it’s impossible to cover every game that gets sent in. However Shorter videos like this allow for a series of small but awesomely fun games to be discussed! The first of which are the Super Smash TV like game Bloody Streets and Triera; a heavily addictive and challenging platformer
So this blog has been going 2 years and while reviewing by text has long gone.. you can still see them here but I’ve not made a new one or an update post like this in well over a year.
