Rally Good!!!!

Been working through the WRC catalogue. (starting at WRC 5) This is pure rally goodness!!! Much more immersive and accessible than the feeble narcissistic DiRT Rally series.

For newcomers and Experts alike- This is a mind-blowingly good experience...

Not everyone will like it

Reviewed by on

This is a game that will (and has) divide opinion in its fanbase due to the story it tries to tell the players.
The game's director, Neil Druckmann, took a gamble with the story and while I don't think it completely pays off, there is definitely a good story in there - in my opinion just told poorly. Without going into spoilers, the game tries to make you feel empathy for certain characters that most people will just hate off the bat (club?) and it doesn't always succeed.
This is a good idea as the game forces you to see certain events from the perspective of other characters. Especially in the world of The Last of Us, not everything is black and white. I just wish they executed the storytelling a little better.

Looking past the storytelling, though, the gameplay is brilliant with some of the most intense encounters I have ever experienced (make sure you play this on at least the Hard difficulty - but Survivor difficulty is the best in my opinion). Ellie is much more agile than Joel was in the previous game and also more weapons/tools available to allow for a wider range of opportunities to work through an encounter. The craft-able explosive arrows and trap bombs are a personal favourite.
Other than that, the graphics, performance capture and voice acting are top notch, as can be expected with any Naughty Dog game.
I wish I could give this 5 stars but the storytelling did leave me disappointed at times.

TL;DR:
Super fun, intense gameplay with the best voice acting and performance capture that tells a good story poorly; but you will definitely get hit in the feels at some points.

Definitely pick this one up if you enjoyed the previous entry.

A divisive Experience.

Reviewed by on

After a long 7 year wait for the sequel to one of the best games ever made, I finally took the time to play the last of us 2.
It was a painful experience that lasted almost 30 hours.
By the time I got to the end of the game I was literally just rushing through it to see how it ended without much love for the repetitive, gruesome, and depressing nature of it..

First the good... The graphics, world building design, and voice acting are all top notch. The gameplay has had some significant improvements from the first entry but still feels like a story driven game rather than one that focuses on slick game-play and gun-play. The story, which comes with almost 15 hours of in game cinematics, leaves a lot to be desired... This is where things start falling apart.

Straight to the point, this sequel does not live up to the adventure, intriguing characters, and memorable story of the fir4st game.
As a matter of fact, everything that happens in the 2nd half of the game seems to actively destroy and poison the memories we had of the first game.

The Last of Us 2 is a masochist’s dream. There’s no shortage of gore, crude sexual acts or bloody massacres as you play through the campaign. It’s a terrible story-line at best.
Had this been a standalone game without any connections to the first part, it more than likely would have failed to sell at all. There are no memorable new characters, and there was no development for the characters that were killed off leaving everything to feel rather stale. It felt like a crude remake of the first story with similar themes played out in bad taste.

The subversion of expectations is the only tool they used in writing the story.. Sadly, it has misfired for Naughty Dog this time around.

In conclusion, The Last Of Us 2 is a lengthy dredge through depression and at times a confusing tale of revenge. With none of the impact of the first game. Only recommended if you liked season 8 of Game of Thrones...

Love this

Reviewed by on

A little reason to turn on my PS4, since I still prefer my Xbox One S. This is an amazing experience. Story a bit all over the place but the slow paced gameplay is great when you need a break and want to be transported in the beautiful unsettling world of DEATH STRANDING.

This is probably the best looking game I own on a console. This will either be a love or hate.

I adore this one :)

Awesome!

Reviewed by on

One of only a few racing game franchises that I find engaging (other being Burnout).

It is challenging, which makes winning a race all the sweeter.
It is also very pick-up-and-play, so if I only have a little time, I can jump in a race or two; but I also find myself saying "just one more race" hehe.

It looks phenomenal and runs buttery smooth, which really adds to the sense of speed.

This game is really under appreciated, and I wholeheartedly recommend this to every PS4 user (whether base, or Pro console)

A bold direction that fully pays off.

Reviewed by on

After years of waiting, a disastrous launch that involved story leaks, a culture war and a bunch of trolls on the internet, the last of us part 2 has finally arrived in the hands of the consumer. The question is was it worth the wait, does it live up to the hype? and was the hate warranted.

The answer, in my opinion, is no the hate was not warranted, and it most definitely lives up and exceeds the hype.

What naughty dog have achieved with this game transcends the medium. This is a bold narrative that will challenge you in your beliefs and dive into the complexity of human emotion. This is triumph from the beginning to the end.

The story worked on every level for me, and I understand this is highly subjective. It is very possible that the story does not work for you, but i implore anyone that is interested in this game to not buy into the hate vitriol and experience it for yourself if you can.

From a gameplay perspective, this is an evolution rather than a revolution. What worked in game 1 has been refined, and what was janky been polished. The stealth aspects have been tweaked and it is a blast to play through encounters, despite the bleakness and violence of this world.

I have a few gripes, with the length of the game being a small issue. I do believe that the last few combat encounters were one too many, and the game could have had a more laser focused narrative at the end. On easier difficulties, enemy AI can be a bit simple, but I think playing on hard and above gives you a real challenge.

Despite these small issues, i have still given this game a perfect score as a i believe full marks in this case is not perfection, but rather it recognises what is to my mind a masterpiece, and a story that will stick with me for years to come, and one that I will discuss and dissect extensively into the foreseeable future.

Raru Admin - Please note the system has changed since the last user reviews. The delivery by email now takes 3 to 5 working days as shown on the product shipping times.

why is delivery 3-5 days for a digital product. i bought this after reading the comments of No Waiting Time, but its been over an hour and no mail. The rating is thus more on RARU than PSN product itself.

Perfect condition

Reviewed by on

I collect video games, so i am very fussy with the condition of my games. Sometimes I find games with small cracks in the case or old glue that collects dirt and feels grimy when you bring your game out from your shelf. Well, i can confirm that this case is a perfect replacement. It arrived in mint condition, the price is a bit high, i mean its just a small plastic box right ,20 rand each would be better but 31 rand, its ok i guess. I will be buying 10 or so more to replace a few more cases I have here and am really pleased with the case. Recommended

Thanks Raru
