Super Random Fun!

Reviewed by on

My 5 year old and I clocked this game in just under 10 hours, with 30% completion.

It’s bit of a short game but has great flow and never gets boring. Right now we’re chasing the characters we don’t have yet e.g. Lord Business @ 1,000,000 coins!

Recommended for LEGO fans with appearances from all popular stories today, from Superman to Gandalf.

Epic conclusion to the Dark Seeker Saga.

Reviewed by on

{I believe I've managed to keep this review spoiler free}

I can now confidently say after finishing the game that it is everything that I wanted in a next generation Kingdom Hearts game. Amazing graphics, epic worlds and a story worthy of concluding the 'Dark Seeker Saga'.

I've enjoyed every moment spent with this title and will return to finish up some of the side content left over. The only issue even worth mentioning would be the difficulty, even on proud setting it does not match up with previous entries. I believe this was probably necessary to make the title more accessible but also leaves one to fully appreciate the story. A critical mode is probably forthcoming in future patches and would be welcomed by most longtime fans. In my opinion this does not come close to being a 'deal-breaker' as the combat and game-play is so much fun and highly enjoyable.

The endgame portion is epic and long enough to tie up a lot of story threads that have been established over all these years. Everything from the opening to the last moments (including the secret ending) is expertly crafted to dig deep in the emotional attachment and investment that long running true fans of the series will probably hold. The OST is another stand-out feature and both themes as well as the retooled 'Dearly Departed' is such high points for the series and is used to such great effect in the game.

The Pixar worlds recreated in this game needs special mention. This is probably the closest you will ever come to playing a Pixar movie. Everything is recreated to the finest detail. The musical number in one of the world fits so well and the rest of the worlds are filled with NPCs and open areas that has never been possible in past games. The two times generation gap between the previous main title games and KH3 is amazingly evident especially if you've replayed the older titles recently. The level of verticality and openness of the worlds are great without opening itself up to the busy-work of true open world games. The worlds that border on open-world never lets up on the fast paced story lines and leaves the exploring mostly as optional content (which I kept going back to as the specific game-play elements are so addictive and fun overall).

This concluded chapter left me satisfied although ready for more. It was an experience that will always stick with me. Truly amazing.

Fun, with a few issues

Reviewed by on

The game is typical of the humour that has made the show so popular. However, in terms of gameplay there are a few issues.
The loading times are extremely long and often the game loads while simply traveling along in the open world. The fighting had no background music; this was fixed in a recent update, but it still a weird thing to have left out.
If you liked the show, you'll like the game, if you can out up with the load times. They irritated me at times, but the overall game and story was worth it.

Bad until you mod it!

Reviewed by on

The device out of the box isn't very good. Luckily it was hacked 3 days after release and by now the mods possible make it possible to run any PSX, Arcade (mame2003), Sega (MD / Genesis), Nintendo (NES, SNES), Atari (2600 5200 etc) and bunch more from a flashdrive. Basically everyone that RetroArch supports. Look for Bleemsync. Worth it if you're going to hack it.

Well then good, don't buy the game.
Not putting the ending on the disk to avoid spoilers is actually a brilliant move on their part.

Also, we live in the age of the internet. If a simple update is too much then I feel bad for you because most games these days are getting day one patches.

Inconsistent pricing

Reviewed by on

Why would anyone pay R1179 for SIX months of Xbox Game Pass when it's R159 per month via Xbox.com when paying month-to-month?? Six times R159 is R954 - that's R225 extra for what, exactly?

Even worse, the THREE month Game Pass price on Raru at the time of writing (Jan 16 2019) is less than R159pm (it's R439, which works out to R146.33pm).

People could just buy two three-month subs for R878, get the same subscription length but pay less than the per-month cost... there is literally *no reason* to get the six-month sub from you.

Please re-assess your six-month Game Pass pricing, Raru; at the very least it should be equal to or less than R954 to give people a reason to buy it here.

Raru Admin Note: We are aware of the pricing issue and have also raised it with our supplier. It may change with the next monthly price update.

RE Returns!

Reviewed by on

It's back to basics with this title and man they did a good job.
At this point you have probably read enough to know you should buy it, especially at this price.
But let me tell you, this game is VERY scary. Let me explain.
I'm 28 years old. I am getting jumpscares all over the place, even thinking about playing this game without sound.
I literally haven't been scared like this from playing a game since i was 7 years old, checking out Doom for the first time.
It is all about the presentation. The audio is amazing, the visuals are perfect for the genre and they play plenty of tricks on you with the camera. I wouldn't describe this as a game, really it's an experience.
I can imagine playing this in VR must be awesome but trust me that headset isn't going to last long!
A must have for anyone.

Reviewed by on

The small ones work nicely on my PS4 controller (even though these are for the PS3!) and they gave good comfortable grip thanks to the small nubs. The larger ones I put on my PS3 controller and because of their higher build they feel as if they give me more control and precision over analog movements such as aiming and sniping when playing FPS games. Would buy these again.

Come all ye Transformers fans!

Reviewed by on

I had my doubts about this game but it’s actually very cool. After a couple hours, my son and I have made it to Chapter 2: The Proudstar.

The game creators have chosen to go with very cartoony graphics which work quite well. The sound effects and musical score are typical Transformers fare and keep the energy going.

At some point we discovered an Ark and realised we could equip new weapons or synthesise new ones. Same for tech.

My only gripe is the camera system - it’s bit screwy or perhaps it’s just me...

All in all, a great game and we are enjoying it.

An excellent revisit of an all-time great

Reviewed by on

I was an avid fan of the PC-based Burnout Paradise so buying the Remastered version on PS4 was an obvious choice for me.

The gameplay is slick and fast-paced while the car and world detail is superb. It's not a simulator in any way because it's not meant to be. But it is hugely fun and that's something that a simulator cannot do. The fun also extends over hours and hours of play courtesy of the massive world to explore and variety of in-game events and challenges.

Highly impressed with this game.

Looks good on my shelf.. that's about it

Reviewed by on

Sony made some strange decisions with this one, some games were designed for used with the original dual shock but they went with the first controller that features no analog sticks. There are some games that brought back very fond memories like Tekken 3 and MGS, unfortunately they are very hard to look at one a 50" hd tv, together with the emulation being sub par.
It looks really nice on my shelf though and was it not for someone buying it for me as a christmas present, I would never have owned one. But at least I can play FF7 on a playstation which is nice I guess. I'd say rather buy the snes claasic from Nintendo, it's amazing.
