Not too bad
This year's Call of Duty isn't terrible — it takes the development from last year's Modern Warfare, such as cinematic loading/match starts, and an improved gunsmith, and does the usual Treyarch tweaks: primarily a slightly slower time-to-kill (TTK), emphasis on moving rather than camping (Ghost doesn't hide you from UAVs if you're sitting doing nothing), and maps with less chaotic sightlines.
Raven Software, who tackled the campaign for Cold War, have done a good job. While the story and set pieces are as predictable as ever, small options such as minor character customization and dialog choices (such as whether to capture or kill a high value target) are interesting and, unusually for a Call of Duty, there are optional side-missions that require actual puzzle solving and brainwork to complete fully and successfully. It's new and refreshing.
Multiplayer is as frantic and fast-paced as ever; veteran COD players will immediately feel right at home, especially fans of older BLOPS.2 weeks ago
Lots of potential!
What Pokemon does better:
- Recognizable characters and character design
- Modernization (e.g., removal of random invisible encounters)
What Temtem does better:
- Tactics and competitive play (fights are 2v2, complementary skills/types are very important)
- Multiplayer (Temtem has an open world with people running around, like MMOs!)
- Longevity (By not being locked into a cycle of pushing out a new game every few years like Pokemon, Temtem can continue to evolve)2 months ago
Simple, but fun
I'm the first to admit I'm not usually one for party/crazy titles — games which are only properly enjoyed if you have friends to play with.
Fall Guys is a little different, though; it's fun to drop in and just start derping around. While it's not something that us loners will probably spend multiple hour sessions on, it's still good to fire up and have a quick giggle with.
Definitely give it a try!2 months ago
More brilliance from Supergiant
Supergiant (of Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre) have truly put their past experiences of building fantastic games to good use with Hades — a roguelike where, as the son of the eponymous Hades, you're attempting to escape the underworld and discover your past.
The game is surprisingly well balanced, and is full of nice touches; characters will quip about how you last died, sprinkling lore across conversations and encounters that are a blast to play every single run. Very fun.2 months ago
A true classic
If you have a PS4, you owe yourself to play this. Even if you weren't a fan of the brutal slash 'n smash gameplay of the older God of War titles, this is worth a visit, with a completely different way of playing that plays more like modern open world adventures like Horizon: Zero Dawn or Tomb Raider. An absolute must-play.3 months ago
