Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

9/10

Nice I also finished it recently and I also give it 9/10 or 8/10 if only because I expected a little bit more from the story and the whole “become the Tomb Raider” thing but I loved the more focus on exploration/puzzles and less action

Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet – PC

Hidden object game with puzzles thrown in. Some of the puzzles have been used elsewhere. The only difference to separate this from any other hidden object game I’ve played was using those objects to link to suspects and the main crime (much like the other Sherlock Holes games). Tried following the story to begin with but became uninterested very quickly. Basic animations, no voice acting, minimalistic music. As with these type of games, it’s not very long. I think the only reason I finished this game was the fact that it was so short. I could only recommend this game if you like hidden object games and this is under a dollar in price.

3/10

Just beat nino kuni 2. Very basic story with a very strange ending. While the story may not be the best, the gameplay and game mechanics were great, especially when you get to build and manage your kingdom. The main story is prob 30 hrs, but i did a lot of the side stuff and my playtime was 64 hrs. The game is made by level 5, the same devs that brought you rouge galaxy and darkcloud. Overall I give the game a 8.5/10

Man, I didn’t like Ni No Kuni 2 nearly as much. The story wasn’t great and it threw roadblocks at your way twice for no reason. Those roadblocks are what made me really dislike the game at the end of the day. ‘Cause the core gameplay is really good and it looks awesome with stellar animations. But when you’re asked to do 10+ hrs of fetch quests just to progress the main story it’s not enough to save the game.

My score would be 6.5/10.

Just a question @the thread here in general, I noticed a lot of folks give a short review on the forum, but don’t post this same evaluation on the normal site. Is there a particular reason for that?

It would be very useful for other readers that come to the game page, to read these reviews of other readers. Should we make it easier to add this input? Differently? Any specifics anyone can share? :-)

For me personally there’s a difference between just sharing my opinion on a game and writing a review. My reviews tend to be longer and better structured, but I can’t always be arsed to actually write one.
When I do write one, I post it both here and on the main site, but that’s become a rarity recently. Time constraints have something to do with it. I’ve got two small kids and I’m a slow writer…

to me a lot of the sidequest were to beat the monsters that were contaminated and I was playing on hard so that is where the challenging gameplay came in that I thought was really fun. I liked how upgrading your kingdom gave you real perks on the missions. Like I said I agree with you on the story part, that was a letdown; and I wasnt a huge fan of the RTS skirmishes,  but the core gameplay and beautiful animations saved the game for me

Interesting, I fully get your point, thing is, the few lines folks write here is what I’d already qualify as a valuable reader contribution (as it includes a start rating and a few lines).

Perhaps the ‘wording’ of the term ‘review’ is too heavy and comes with an expectations that we want a big essay (don’t get me wrong a more extensive review is very much appreciated and very valuable).

Would it help if we’d add an option to “cast your verdict”, so you have a rating and a few lines to share your opinion? Maybe that’s too leading of a question, so generally said, what would motivate you to share the piece of feedback that would be given in this thread as well?

It’s not really the wording per se for me. The expectation of a big essay comes entirely from myself. I’m quite anal that way (and can probably blame autism spectrum disorder). Smile

Frankly, I think there’s little you can do to change my opinion on this. I’m not exactly capable of posting a “reader’s opinion” without it matching *my* idea of a review. Even if I know the site would settle for a lot less, *I* wouldn’t. Which is why I mostly post on the forums and far less on the main site…

I’m fine with posting a quick one-line opinion on a public forum. Doing the same under an editorial review is a different matter for me…

Clive Barker’s Undying – PC

First two thirds I found great, last third I found it a slog. Bad last boss. Ending sets up a sequel that never happened.

Score: 6/10

just beat legend of heroes trails of cold steel 1 and this might be one of my favorite jrpgs series of all time depending on how 2-4 turn out. Overall the turn based combat, life sim aspects, story and most of all characters are all very well done to me with a solid A+ effort in localization and english voice actors. Overall I would give the game a 9.5/10

Mega Man 7 that battle with the Wily Capsule at the end is extremely hard I guess they were like we made Wily way too easy in Mega Man 6 so we need to make him way too hard in the next game. Anyway I beat it and my LP has already been uploaded and will be officially released on my channel soon.
