I'm genuinely tempted to pick it up just to rattle through on easy. I really enjoyed the last one for its non-cliched stuff and this one sounds like it's going in even harder in that respect, but the actual gameplay of the last one just got annoying after a while and relied too much on arena style bullshit (which other people enjoy I realise, it's just not my thing). Hmmm.

I think we had a similar view of TNO so maybe you’ll enjoy this one as much as I have. There’s much less arena style action although it’s still there in parts just because it’s an old school shooter. The last big fight is just a large arena where you’re swarmed with baddies and the titular Collosus but even that was manageable. I reckon you’d have a blast...

... even on easy? What a knob.

Elsewhere as I was playing it I was thinking “Hey this feels a bit like Resistance 3.” And then I was sad that there’s never going to be a sequel to Resistance 3.

Yeah, I think I'll probably play it at some point for the interesting stuff it does (e.g. the whole thing about you starting out in a wheelchair really piqued my interest) but I'm just too terrible in general at games to enjoy taking it on 'properly'; hence my chat about easy mode.

80. GNOG: a beautiful puzzle game (of sorts) stuffed with the sort of charm that's Doublefine's stock in trade. Each level is essentially a puzzle box that gives you no specific guidance for unravelling it or even what your aim actually is each time. The fact that your progression through each is as smooth as butter despite that is testament to how incredibly well the visual and audio design wordlessly guides you through each scenario; and it's just flat-out really, really good fun. It could be argued that it's too easy and too short but I enjoyed my time with it so much that I didn't really care. Oh, and although the gameplay doesn't change at all by playing it in VR, it makes good use of the extra depth to throw in some lovely touches so comes even more recommended for the PSVR set.

81. Bound: 3D platformer set in an incredible and ever-moving geometric landscape that sees your beautifully animated 'dancing' character metaphorically work through her childhood trauma by way of progressing through the levels. It initially seems very linear--and certainly that's mostly how I played it--but there are hidden sections in each level that aren't easy to find and alternate paths spread throughout the game. Indeed it was apparently designed very much with speed running in mind and there are some YouTube videos showing some mind boggling routes being taken. Also, allegedly, you can actually somehow choose to play the levels through in any order you want but I saw no way at all to do that so there's obviously some stuff in there I've totally missed. All that aside though, as a VR experience it's fucking incredible and near essential. It looks flat-out beautiful and the abstract nature of the art design just makes it a joy to wander through in VR with the sense of scale that brings to the table.
82. Ministry of Time: Save The Time: a short freebie 'escape the room' sort of VR curio that I stumbled across at the weekend. The game play is basic and it's only really got two scenes, although the first of the two is pretty well rendered and the effect of the people constantly rushing past the frosted glass office windows was really well done. It's mostly worth playing though for how fucking silly it is. Between 'levels' you talk to other characters who work for the Ministry in pre-rendered video scenes; these are made amusing because (a) they're not very well acted melodrama, (b) the original dialogue was in Spanish and has been dubbed into English, with VR making the lack of lip-syncing even more hilarious and (c) to presumably add flavour there's constant background characters wandering the halls during these conversations and they're all in random period dress which is just stupid and brilliant. Not least when some rando in a 15th century French cardinal's cassock shoots you congratulatory double finger-guns right at the end. From Googling this it turns out it's a tie-in for a Spanish TV series which makes some kind of sense of it's existence.

83. The Deadly Tower of Monsters: a sort of twin-stick shooter that combines combat with exploration and platforming while ascending the titular tower and murdering loads of aliens. the aesthetic here is 'cheesy 60s sci-fi flick' and it extends that to having the director of the film commenting as you play as if he was recording director's commentary for a DVD release. The visuals are solid with all the enemies looking like guys in monkey suits or plastic alien masks and it's all very well put together. You get a multitude of different weapons, each with upgrades, and three unlockable characters to play with. They even take good advantage of the tower climbing mechanic in that sometimes you need to change your viewpoint to look down to lower levels of the tower and murders flying aliens as they approach which makes for a nice change. Sounds good right? Yeah, no so much. On paper everything's there but the execution really isn't great across the board. The in-game currency required to upgrade weapons is really hard to come by so you're not going to see much change there; which doesn't really matter because the clunky repetitive combat renders all the weapons pretty similar in use (especially the melee weapons which are almost completely interchangeable). Talking of repetitive, aside from a couple of missions set off the tower which give more room to manoeuvre, climbing the tower itself become a bit of a chore after a while. The visual design does change things up admirably and you'll very often get new enemies to fight, but nothing actually changes as you spiral your way up the tower so it doesn't help much. Boss fights are rare and boring; the 'shoot down the tower' stuff is unwieldy and annoying; the platforming sections are an arse-ache due to some quirk of the pseudo-isometric viewpoint rendering vertical distances pure guesswork; the three characters are exactly the same to play with except having unique specials which are almost never used (except in random rare cases where you need to switch to a different person for five seconds to get past an obstacle); etc. It's actually more fun to play than I'm making it sound there but there's just so much of it that's completely half-baked. Less weapons (or more upgrade currency), proper twin-stick shooter combat and a little bit more variety and it could've been something really special but I can't really recommend it as it stands.

84. Kholat: a horror walking simulator type of thing based very loosely on the Dyatlov Pass incident. It looks lovely and is absolutely dripping in atmosphere but the gameplay is impacted negatively by the difficulty in navigating around the place. You're basically dropped on a mountain with a map and compass but there's no marker showing where you actually are at any given time so you have to properly map read your way around. Which is quite fun to a degree, but there are points where the map doesn't properly represent the terrain so you will absolutely spend time being frustratingly lost. Cynically I wonder if that's done on purpose because if it was easier to find your way around you could probably rattle through the game very quickly. The plot is totally bobbins--some of the dialogue poor Sean Bean is given to work with is utterly fucking nonsensical--and the enemy encounters aren't much to speak of but when you do find the points the advance the plot you get some compellingly weird and pretty scenes. I did enjoy it but I could totally understand how a lot of people would get sick of it's shit long before it ended.

You make a game called Max Payne which has this one move called bullet time which is so groovy that it can bear the burden of several games on its back. Umpteen years later you make another game with several moves but none of them as interesting or well implemented as bullet time. You’ve gone backwards.

It’s a pretty game for sure but the combat isn’t that great. You fire a gun for more than a burst and your bullets spray absolutely everywhere. Enemies, even Joe Standard, is a bullet sponge. Headshots mean nothing. Combat isn’t as satisfying as that game you did years ago. You’ve gone backwards.

But what about the story? No one will care because it’s boring. And no one in their right mind will put the controller down for 30 minutes and watch a piss poor TV show between chapters. If I want to watch a TV programme I have the ability to choose what and when I want to watch it. Maybe I’m not a fan of syfy channel “action”. Because I ain’t. I watched as much as I could possibly endure. The result: I skipped every single one of the interludes.

Oh, I almost forgot, just like the developers, that there’s some ridiculously easy time travel “puzzles”. Like “stand here and press Y to rebuild a bridge by rewinding time. Then run to the next point before time goes back.” You’ll get one of these maybe a handful of times during the game. They could have been fun; they could have been interesting; they could have been challenging. Just think of all the things you could do with a time mechanic! There’s loads of games the developers could have nicked ideas from without even having to think much. Nope. The laziest design I’ve seen in a big budget game in quite some time.

Last gripe, aiming a gun is a nightmare. There’s something not right with the acceleration of the reticle. I changed the sensitivity through all the settings and could never find the right balance at all. Small movements are impossible because there seems to be a dead zone in the controller that I’m sure isn’t a problem with the Xbox controllers cause they’re supposed to be great, right. I’ve no idea that no one has pointed this out to the developers during testing.

All in all, a disappointing and entirely average game.

More inventiveness and creativity than any AAA game can muster these days and it knows how to use all the functions of the game pad to great effect. You’ll probably finish it and wonder why no other game uses half the features as creatively as Tearaway.

It’s a game for kids, really (barring some difficult platforming towards the end) but there’s enough here for any gamer to smile along with from the Squirrels, the pumpkin head (dub step voice all the way, obv), the stickers and drawing penises on everyone and everything. And my friend, Dr Peniseyes.

It’s a game that you’ll be incapable of disliking. Apart from the kiddie voice used in the very end game bit. You’ll be wishing that little fucker was used as bait in operation yewtree.

Dr Peniseyes out of 10.

Tearaway Unfolded looked brilliant and was all kinds of creative and all that jazz but, as with the various LittleBigPlanet's, I found myself getting very bored with the actual game long before it ended. Media Molecule's stuff is a masterclass in 'form over function'.

I never did complete LBP’s story due to boredom, but mainly because it felt like a tutorial for the design your own game thing it had got going on. I found Tearaway to be more focused on throwing ideas at you to enjoy rather than remember for something else (there’s none of the design your game bollocks, other people, it’s a campaign and that’s it). I thought it did a good job of varying tasks to keep you playing and giving the player enough linear and open areas so you could explore if you wanted or just push through to the next thing. It’s lacking in challenge for hardened gamers and that might be why you were a bit bored. I got a bit bored too at points because the campaign has a decent length and I was binging it. It’s more suited to causal play anyway. I think the causal crowd and the Animal Crossing guys will find this adorable.

LBP rather only came into its own when partaking in coop play.

Either that or playing my solitary published level. With explosive horses. (and a prize of a box infinitely full of explosive horses. A source of horse, some would say)

85. Trine 3: this final instalment of the Trine series got a good kicking when it first came out, but I really enjoyed it and actually appreciated a lot of the changes that everyone else seemed to hate. The short length is a boon these days; the extra challenge of finding the collectibles was a nice aside; the addition of a third dimension was genuinely well done and only rarely an annoyance; the 'nerfing' of the wizard made for a game not just filled with bullshit, fiddly building challenges that made you want to scream. The level hub was largely pointless and it's blatantly completely unfinished (after killing the final boss the characters themselves even talk about the next level they need to go to, which doesn't exist) but it's still absolutely beautiful throughout and just flat out good fun to rattle through.

Yes, i also did like Trine 3 very much. I just love the graphics and overall fairytale vibe of the series, and the going 3D was nice to avoid the series from getting stale.
