My review

Reviewed by on

Review is based on the digital version.
The game is a hack and slash like Dinisity warriors. The game consists with only a female roster and the target audience is clearly to males which also likes anime.
The story is very generic, but finding out about the evil and good shinobi's back story and their reason for being shinobi is interesting, for example one girl was disowned by her good shinobi parents as she killed her tutor in defense who tried to kill her.
Its fun beating up mobs of enemies, but fighting one on one against the other main characters is not.
I do in joy this game, but I know this is not for everyone.

Doesn't live up to the complaints

Reviewed by on

I know this game has received a lot of negative publicity for reusing old resources and having some Pokemon not available, but I find this hardly detracts from the experience at all. Despite some of my usual favourites being unavailable I had a harder time than ever deciding which monsters to keep in my party and which to keep in the box, and thanks to the Box Link feature I was able to conveniently manage a party of thirteen rather than the traditional six. The shared EXP people complain about was also a heavensend in keeping my levels even where otherwise I simply wouldn't have had the time to grind every single monster individually. Dynamax battles are also a huge convenience thanks to the Pokemon you use not gaining experience from the fight as the EXP Candies you earn from them can be given to whichever Pokemon you wish.

TLDR if you know how to look for it the pros of this game vastly outnumber the cons

Works as expected

Reviewed by on

Code worked as expected. Includes the base game as well as the two expansions.

Note: If compared to the Campaign Collection available on the Battle.net store, the Battle Chest does NOT include the Nova Covert Ops. However, this is still much cheaper, and once redeemed the Campaign Collection will have a reduced cost so you can still buy those separately without 'buying it twice'.

EA stepped up

Reviewed by on

I must admit EA really stepped up in FIFA 20.
Plenty of fun game modes, they just didn't make any big changes to Pro Clubs as it's like a carbon copy of FIFA 19.
Adding objectives to FUT makes it way more exciting to play and makes you want to grind more as you get to unlock different players in the storyline through gaining XP as well as gaining different packs.
VOLTA is a nice addition with a rather bland story but it's atleast something different after the Journey.
Online play is fast and responsive after some updates and the champions league is back.
Only thing missing is the license for Juventus but who cares when one plays FUT.

Not so good 2020

Reviewed by on

PES2020 online is a disaster, especially if you're into MyClub.
Offline the game runs smoothly without any delayed button reaction.
If you're into online only, forget about playing this game as it's a disaster online.
Konami added a few new face scans here and there and with option files it's no problem getting every team fully licensed.
If only Konami would fix their online servers and bugs then none of us PES lovers would shift to FIFA 20.

Although I don't have much experience with Switch cases, I can highly recommend this one for its badassery in the graphics aspect, its durability, and the adorable themed game cases that come with it. I did get the wrong picture on the front, but that is a minor detail. Inside there is another zipped section for extra storage. Its super great!!!!!

I thought this was an automatic process, having purchased these before with an instant email with the code. Even buying after hours, the code was delivered instantly. Now today I bought this and it says it will take 1 week. Why?

This kind of delay is how you miss a Steam Sale. Disappointed.

Limited edition = pre order version

Reviewed by on

Was verry happy with the price, tried my luck with the limited edition (Xbox one) which was weirdly the same price as normal one.

But I was hoping I would actually get the big box limited edition, but I got the pre order bonus one. I was hoping it was a listing error but R177 is still a good price.

MESX 2 - Milestone have cracked the SX Genre

Reviewed by on

At first glance, it is easy to think, here is another 2-wheeled offroad racer with botched physics and unrealistic handling mechanics. To a point, you would be correct - (yes, here comes the BUT).

BUT - If you are a serious racer and play the game how it is intended to be played, there is not much else that could give you more OCD satisfaction than successfully linking a corner into a short rhythm-sections, building instant momentum and scrubbing a large triple before sliding into the next corner.

The game has its flaws though, keep it pinned and you can pretty much 'whoop' straight sections with smaller jumps. Crashing is inconsistent when casing jumps and the controller handing mechanics prove to be frustrating (that may be down to skill though) and you can find yourself aimed into the crowd or colliding with pesky hay-bails, resulting in a lengthy and frustrating process to get going again. The AI are non-adaptive and often back-markers tend to ruin your race.

Where Monster Energy Supercross 2 has really impressed me though are the actual physics of the handling and acceleration of the bikes available. It is the best I have experienced and the best Milestone has had to offer in a while (makes me excited for Milestone's 2020 releases).

The customization aspects of the game can keep real die-hard fans entertained for hours with a range of unique and licensed products for both bike and rider. As an added, bonus there is a track editor and a decent sized open world feature - The Compound that unlocks sections as you progress through the game.

MESX 2 scores 4 / 5 in my books, and had the physics been slightly more simulated and believable, this arcade racer may be the closest to an actual offroad 2-wheeled sim than it advertises.

A Great Addition to the Mini Retro Consoles

Reviewed by on

Personally I was never as much a fan of the Mega Drive / Genesis as opposed to the Master System. Solely due to the games released for each console however it is hard to argue any fact when it comes to this release.

Originally AT Games launched a mini Mega Drive with around 60-80 games pre-loaded onto their device with the added option of using original cartridges on the machine. Despite the idea being good, the quality of the product was far less appealing. Controller buttons were hard and the product lacked true authentication. Even frame rate emulation was off and did not display accurately.

But this has now changed. Sega themselves were responsible for the release of this current console and it is very clear that their meticulous attention to quality were present with an original and high standard.

Some have argued of the 3 button controller although this was the first controller released for the console. There are 6 button controllers available should you need one but these are sold through other dealers. In my opinion, the controllers are not short at all and i could quite comfortably play the console in my rather large living room. The Nintendo mini on the other hand had extremely short controllers

The game menu is crisp and easy to use offering information on each title available and as for the games selection, it is 42 of some of the best titles ever made. The frame rate is also in line with most modern TV's.

.Its really a good release and I take my proverbial hat off to Sega for their efforts. Two thumbs up!
