Long live the seven! 10 Awesome Bass Guitars That Won Us All Over
The Callisto Protocol has just hit stores worldwide and its ratings have been a pitcher of cold water for many. As we said in our review, where it does not exceed 7, it hurts the soul to think about what can and cannot. The final experience is far from Dead Space 4 that we have never experienced and expected. However, we must always put the notes in their context and remember that the seven is always a remarkable one that we must have signed with our eyes closed in some university subjects. A wonderful bass, yes, a wonderful one that takes it away from excellence and being an important game, but that also represents that it is thoroughly enjoyed and even, why not, it can attract us and win place in our little hearts. This has been demonstrated by others in the past. These are the ones we’ll definitely be reviewing today, the examples that were not fully recognized by the press when they were launched, but remain in our memory as great games. Because as you’ve heard more than once, “Opinions are like asses. We all have one. »
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
A soul of Star Wars. What a dangerous project… what a wonderful project. Respawn Entertainment (Titanfall, Apex Legends) has moved from a shooter genre to a third-person action-adventure genre and the result has once again proven the developer to be trustworthy. Cal Kestis’ adventure made it into our top best Star Wars games, but it didn’t end up winning it all due to plot issues and technical issues. However, the excellent level design (including backtracking) and the balanced combination of platforming, combat, and exploration make it something to consider, and not just for fans of the LucasArts universe. We can’t wait to see the sequel, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, which we recently reviewed everything we know so far.
Wolfenstein: The New Order
Reboots are more dangerous than they look. Taking a franchise of the caliber of Wolfenstein, one of the progenitors of the shooter genre, an icon of the 80s and 90s, and reviving it three decades later is usually not going well and is not a challenge for anyone. But Machine Games did it, boy did it. The New Order is the first of four games (and we’re still eagerly awaiting the fifth and final) that brought the Wolfenstein saga to life, while keeping all its magic, of old-school FPS, direct, ordinary. and is unapologetically full of scary moments and has a fun sense of humor that doesn’t cut corners. Nostalgia and vindication of the originals weigh on their reviews, but that doesn’t mean The New Order and its successors are shooters capable of entertaining and endearing anyone.
A BioShock in space with Arkane’s seal of approval (Dishonored)? What else do you want? Prey is one of the sleepers of 2017 and it is a cult gem that we never tire of recommending, but in its time the review notes also weigh on it. In these he suffered from eternal comparisons with System Shock and the Irrational Games saga, but also from problems related to the brand. Many wanted to pick up the standout game of the same name released in 2006, “a return to the FPS genre” and were still upset about the canceled sequel. Some are upset that it didn’t keep the spirit and was more hardcore and classic. Too bad, because prejudices prevented many from seeing that we were dealing with a great gameman.
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron
If Transformers is already frowned upon in theaters for looking like a good movie fan, think about video games, where games released to cash in on the commercial appeal of certain movies are always the network’s biggest flag. of industry. . With such a handicap, The Fall of Cybertron battled unbelievers through word of mouth. Everyone who tried it was surprised and realized: it’s a lot of fun. The unexpected level of design of the highest standard, a wide variety of situations and solid multiplayer (which is important in this era of online chaos) made it the best recreation of the Transformers universe in video game format. It’s a shame if his seven will miss him by more than one.
The remedy is one of the studies that is constantly being evaluated. Maybe because we know what he’s capable of (Max Payne, Alan Wake) and we won’t settle for less. Quantum Break hasn’t been the action-adventure benchmark that many had hoped for, but that doesn’t make it a bad game. Nothing could be further from the truth. Fun and uncomplicated, the proposal experimented heavily with storytelling and all sorts of time-related playable mechanics. You’re not always going to invent bullet time and revolutionize the entire video game industry, but that doesn’t take away from what you do well.
The Evil Within
Ever since Resident Evil 4, survival horrors have always had the same dilemma. Too much action and you lose the most purist of the genre. Too little and you lose your audience. Finding balance is complicated and when you don’t get one, you get another. Add to that a tech section full of glitches, long shadows of Resident Evil 4, and some black bands on the screen that won’t go away. That’s why The Evil Within, a game full of virtues and virtues, never stood out on Metacritic. An indispensable Mikami genius for fans of the genre who, like all works of genius, is touched by madness and capable of both good and evil.
A third-person shooter from the creators of Yakuza? An attempt to lure Westerners away from Sega’s Japanese offices? Things did not go well and posters of spiking Marines and gunfire everywhere were not very encouraging. However, Binary Domain turned out to be a very original experience, with its own identity and a very good script. And that’s exactly why everyone doesn’t stop liking it. Sometimes we complain about the lack of sparkle or freshness in many productions, stuck in the usual formulas, but when we have something different in front of us, we show that it is difficult to get used to. It is not over yet to appreciate and show that taste can be taught, as Plato said. Binary Domain is a cult game that arouses passions (and hate) wherever it goes and the review notes only take this into account, without taking away a little of the genius from the proposition.
Due to technical issues and its repetitive missions and strategies, Dying Light is a refreshing cocktail that mixes parkour, gore, zombies and survival as ingredients. The typical game that you do not know, try and want to leave, but where if you scratch below the surface you will find a surprising depth with hundreds of contents and unforgettable situations. Gradually word of mouth and user reviews (higher than the press), led Techland to expand it further with extensions and present it as one of the best zombie games in history. It even has a sequel released this year.
The days passed
Riddled with bugs and technical issues, Days Gone’s launch was one of the most controversial. Furthermore, it’s Sony’s big first-half 2019 exclusive and a zombie game in an industry then saturated with the walking dead and walkers. Sticks were falling everywhere, and until the storm passed and the updates began to flow, people discovered a game that fulfilled the dreams of many Z-themed fans: even Daryl Dixon, the crossbow biker who doesn’t play well. donkey on The Walking Dead. Plus, it was made with production values never before seen in a zombie game. He didn’t invent the wheel, Days Gone is a road movie whose paths and trails are worth going over the notes, drawing on this chaotic beginning. Once started, there is no going back.
We end the list with another one of those video game adaptations that we mistook for a simple promotional product that wanted to take advantage of the success of the current movie (in this case, the excellent Mad Max Fury Road). Maybe that’s their problem, but in the sense that the Avalanche have few resources and have organized themselves that way. The game was sorely missed, but any kid who played Mad Max Solitaire on the NES could see the good intentions behind it and be disappointed by an adventure that nailed the essence of the road warrior.
