South Park: The Fractured but Whole brings its players a joyful, funny experience with all jokes and critical points expected from a game under the label of South Park. Quite unfortunate for The Fractured but Whole, bugs which affect gameplay and other problems like long loadings, low frame rate in the moments of graphical business, and some jokes which are not funny for SP fans, prevent the game to become a better episode than The Stick of Truth.

The thing with Far Cry 5 is, story-wise, you think you are playing but it’s actually you who are being played. You feel you are the hero, you feel like a king, you have power, you have friends, you have money, you LEAD, you choose who to kill first, how to do it and by what, but when it comes to the political views the two worlds share, you completely understand ‘why’ and ‘to what degree of quality level’, you are wrong. You are just another fool played by it because You do not play Far Cry 5 but it plays you. And that’s so much real-life kind-a situation it may start to scare you for a bit. But FC5 fantasies, all that glamours​ looks, the involvement of people with real dumb and unbelievable stories makes it less embarrassing. not at all awkward and it even makes it funny. And that’s just how a game is so damn beautiful and impressive. For what I see here, Far Cry 5 is as great as it can be.

Chuchel is yet another funny and entertaining game from the creators of Machinarium, Botanicula, and Samorost Trilogy.

April 11th 2018

Extinction had the opportunity to be a great Hack n Slash game with creative innovations, but the lack of detailed/ various level design and the lack of an engaging narrative wastes that chance. The game becomes repetitive after playing for a few hours, but if you are into a challenging/ casual game, Extinction is a good choice for you.

Attack on Titan 2

April 4th 2018

Attack on Titan 2 is a better game in comparison to the starting title of the series. Although there are a great background and story for the game considering Attack on Titan novel, the game suffers from a weak narrative. The game’s visuals are fantastic, but its repetitive gameplay does not help the player to get away from boredom. In any aspect Attack on Titan 2 is close and loyal to its novel and to its anime, it presents enjoyable moments like in its OST, and the only negative point here was the lack of English subtitles in the first version of the game which made non-Japanese players confused.

Except for a good story, Past Cure has nothing to present if you are looking for a polished action game. Clearly, the game and some of its elements are inspired by great titles like Max Payne and Silent Hill, but Phantom 8 does not fulfill those inspirations and the game fails to put its story potentiality into practice. If you can ignore the game’s deficiencies, you could give it a try to experience its story.

Lost Sphear is a loyal game to JRPG Genre and you can feel every nostalgic element of games like Final Fantasy and I Am Setsuna in it; but the problem with the game is that even though is narrates an interesting story, it has no roots and identity of itself. The enemies in the game could not be visually designed better, but their codes make them attack in Active Battle Time-like system which does not work it out for a modern JRPG game.
