Average User Score: tbdJun 5, 2018Shift Quantum is an outstanding puzzle game with an original core mechanic, challenging levels, great music and a level editor on top. ThereShift Quantum is an outstanding puzzle game with an original core mechanic, challenging levels, great music and a level editor on top. There are plenty of levels and the difficulty ranges from easy to hard and downright evil. You know a puzzle game is good when you're smiling because you just can't figure out the solution.
The shift ability let's you walk into negative space, which on its own is already mind-bending. In combination with some of the other mechanics this game features a variety of puzzles that keeps the levels fresh and interesting.
In some levels Shift Quantum adds a few story elements to its otherwise no compromise 2D puzzle gameplay. There are general hints of a setting and the levels are put in front of a soothing, subtly animated cyberpunk themed backdrop. The music fits this theme as well and is a great soundtrack for puzzle solving.
The game also comes with an easy to use editor where you can create and share your own levels as well as a community browser that lets you play others'.… Expand

There's not much that will keep the average gamer for long in Everything: no action, combat or puzzles, the graphics are subpar and there isn't any story to the game. But what this game can do, is put you in a different state of mind.
You'll be exploring the world of Everything by simply taking on the form of different animals, plants, objects and pretty much anything that is out there. As you stumble and roll through the world, jumping from one form into the other, you sometimes find tape recordings of philosopher Alan Watts. Letting his words sink in while continuing to explore the world of Everything was a unique experience that I would have never expected from a game.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.3May 25, 2018Overall Guerrilla Games took a few Hollywood blockbusters from the past and mixed them with a stale blend of gameplay mechanics, poorly copiedOverall Guerrilla Games took a few Hollywood blockbusters from the past and mixed them with a stale blend of gameplay mechanics, poorly copied from other games. If there is one thing the developer exceeded at, it's making a mediocre game look good.
Yes, this game has great graphics, but that's pretty much it. The story is a mix of rehashed movie plots and was seemingly written in hindsight to accommodate the main idea of fighting robot animals. This wouldn't be a problem, if those fights were actually somewhat interesting. But for the most part, combat in Horizon Zero Dawn is a monotonous cycle of performing dodge rolls and shooting arrows, with a few melee attacks now and then.
The sidequests are among the most boring I've ever seen in a video game. They only differ in the form of the cheesy story the quest giver will tell you. They all follow the same formula: Go to point A and examine the area, follow footsteps to point B and examine the area, follow footsteps to point C and...you get the idea. Eventually you find whatever it is you were looking for and can return to the quest giver.
Weapons, customizations and perks are meaningless and arbitrary; a tacked on, low effort attempt to add some RPG flavor to a bland open world game. The only thing this game is rich in, is map icons. You will find a lot of locations that promise some sort of activity, too bad it will always feel like the exact same thing you did 10 minutes ago.… Expand

The seamless blend of melee and ranged attacks makes for a fast paced, fun and action heavy combat that finds its culmination in numerous boss fights.
NieR: Automata's innovative use of the camera and core mechanics allows for a mix of genres that never feels forced or out of place. A true masterpiece!… Expand
Average User Score: 7.5May 25, 2018Final Fantasy XV is boring. The combat is bland and for the most part all you have to do is hold down a single button to watch your characterFinal Fantasy XV is boring. The combat is bland and for the most part all you have to do is hold down a single button to watch your character fight. There is another button that you press to warp across the screen and strike your foe from a distance, but that's basically it in terms of offensive maneuvers.
Speaking of boring, the game lets you watch a car drive through the scenery to travel the lands of Whateverland. You can not steer the car other then turn left or right at crossroads. It's on autopilot for most of the time and you just watch as it drives down the road and listen to the childish banter between the characters inside the car.
The quests are tedious, and literal fetch quest. The same guy will send you to different spots over and over again to collect dog tags for example. These quests just boil down to a few minutes of watching the car drive, arrive at the general location, go to the map marker, fight a small group of easy creatures, pick up the dog tags and watch the car drive back to collect your reward.
Other quests make you comb through an open area to find and collect small things. These quests will test your patience and have you running in circles over and over again, looking behind every rock until you finally find the last little quest item.
There are a few noteworthy things, like nice graphics and animation. Some of the bigger creatures look good as well, but the combat in this game is just so bad that it doesn't matter what you're fighting, it feels meaningless.
Add to all of this a shallow story, bad voice acting and overall strange moments like you and your party riding on the back of pink birds while acting like a group of eight year olds, and you know why after 12 hours of forcing myself to keep playing, I eventually just quit.… Expand
