Very addicting and mostly satisfying adventure with good comic book pacing and a reasonably satisfying climax.

Forced stealth sections and subpar, repetitive minigames caused minor point deductions.


Are you talking about the science ones? You can actually opt to skip them, but i don't think the game advertises it very well.


Ya I was. Honestly didn't realise that - would have felt a bit cheap to skip them though, I guess.

I don't mind them as a change of pace (same with the stealth sections) but they are quite basic-the developer's putting in an option to skip them does kinda feel like them admitting they aren't great though :lol:

Good point. There's no gamer on the planet who can get through the late game Sable strongholds, complete with flying nazis and whipping ninajs, but struggles with a basic match the tiles puzzle.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (PS4)

This was a visually sumptuous and fun rollercoaster of action and intrigue. There seems to be a trend of games like this and God of War, as well as films like Logan, where previously fairly superficial franchises are exploring themselves and their characters more as they mature. This was a great way to round off Nathan's story while leaving many future threads open for new characters and situations - such as the Lost Legacy spinoff with Nadine and Chloe. I played it on the second lowest difficulty so can't really comment on the challenge of it, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and my god, even on the base PS4 it is absolutely stunning. Its sad in a way that so much attention was clearly spent on every square metre of these massive worlds and a lot of it is seen for a few minutes at most before you move on.

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

Inside 7/10

It had some annoying puzzles. Not a bad game though, it just never really hits a stride in terms of gameplay for me. The story was completely baffling.

Slightly better than Limbo I think.

Resident Evil 2 - 9/10

Beat Leon A and Claire B on Normal level difficulty. Was amazed to unlock another big bloody load of content!!

Have only completed Resi 4 before this, and this rivals it in terms of tight gameplay, but there is less campy fun. I found Mr X absolutely fine mechanically - not tedious because of the excellent map system allowing you to plan routes. The weapon variety is great and the environments and enemies feel clever and varied.

Only docked a point because the unavoidably repetitive nature of the campaigns is dull.

I have Resi 7 unplayed on my shelf and excited to demolish that eventually before returning to this.

Resi 7 is really really fun. It's probably the only new game this generation I've played. I just don't make time for gaming anymore, a shame really. Maybe I'll look into grabbing 2.

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse - 7.5/10

Well crafted Metroidvania which never becomes exceptional. No real original ideas, but well executed standard unlockables and good scaling in challenge. Also very good final boss.

Plot wise, te game assumes the player has quite a lot of familiarity with previous entries, and this is was my first experience with the series.

PixelJunk Racer : 2nd Lap

I’m about done & was going to give this a good score but these last four challenges are testing my patience. Why is game devs make great games then sour the mood at the end with some frustrating bollocks for the sake of it?.

I’m playing sudden death turbo. What you do is drive around the track slowly & precise as you can whilst dodging nukes with wheels. The frustrating part of this that makes me want to kick the devs in the shin is that sometimes (I mean most of the time) when you get to a corner there is no lane to get by because there is a gang of nukes in the bend.

That’s not fun. That’s annoying. That makes me want to kick you in the bollocks until you are dead. Really frustrating.

I would off given it a 4/5 because barring this, it is a joy to play :(

Hey ho 3/5

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 - 6/10

+ Retains the core of what made the first game good
+ Still enjoyable/satisfying to plan an assault on an area and execute it perfectly

- Teammates are thick as gooseberry fool
- Dumb enemy AI
- Forgettable/uninteresting plot
- Looks ropey at times

GRID 2 - 7/10

+ Looks good
+ Good range of cars
+ Nice mix of race types
+ Can be very enjoyable when you've got the right mix of car/track

- Career mode is too long...really felt like it was dragging on
- Relatively few tracks, so there's lot of repetition, especially across so many events
- AI cars are like tanks that can't be moved, but if they clip you, you go somersaulting off across the track...really annoying
- Your engineer doesn't shut up and gets really annoying

Thimbleweed Park (Xbox One X).

A point and click that remained very faithfull to the games of the early 90s that I loved so much. Played it through on hard and found most of the puzzles to be logical, with a great built in hint system when I felt I required it.
Recommended if you are nostalgic for games from a long forgotten generation.
