Doesn't control well. I'm not sure if this is a switch thing or it was like this on the wii. Having never played it before.

I did. but then again, we'd rather come to the conclusion that the other character did not really deserve the win, so it wasnt really a fight.'

I think before we'd even escaped prison, I'd predicted that I were an undercover police man.

10) Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (Xbox)

Star Wars Jedi: Uncharted Shadow of the Fallen Metroid Tomb Raider Vania, more like. It was billed as a Dark Souls SW but it’s only really got bonfires and respawning enemies. Everything else is nu Tomb Raider and Uncharted as you do loads of climbing and farting about but with a Metroid flavour as you gain new powers you can go new places and backtrack if you feel the need.

Just explained my hilarious joke in the first sentence, which was unnecessary.

Anyway, it’s really good.

But it’s too long. The pacing slows to an absolute crawl in the 5th chapter as you visit a shit planet filled with spiky headed dudes that look like that guy with the dual lightsabers from the prequel film. Can’t remember his name. Darth something. Anyway, if they hadn’t included that planet this would be top absolutely recommend to everyone tier because I was having loads of fun.

Well, the combat isn’t as good as Dark Souls which is a bit shit for a game about flashy laser blades, but it’s got some good fights that require reasonably precise timing to dodge, parry and all that. On the harder difficulty anyway.

But I was so fed up with Darth Rinkus world that I knocked it down to easy mode and just smashed through to the end as it was wasting my time. Which is a real shame, cause I was enjoying the boss fights. It’s just the normal enemies are mainly boring and dry. Stormtroopers are brilliant fun to fight (mainly cause the chat from them is good, but also deflecting a blaster shot back in their faces somehow never got old) but spiked head freaks are just yawn and the endless spiders and crap aren’t fun to fight at all. The bigger enemies were good in a God of War stylee too. But there wasn’t the variety that it desperately needed.

Oh, back to good bits. If you’ve got Game Pass, play the first hour cause it’s fucking ace. Oh and Wookie world where you start and AT-ATs are emerging from the water was just mwaaah! It looks really great. The whole game looked brilliant actually. The end levels aesthetics are great too as you enter an Empire base. Again, mwaaah!

And Darth Vader at the end? He’s a fucking badass. I literally had chills and I’m not that big of a Star Wars fan. But Vader kicking my ass? Mwaaaaaahhhh.

But back to the bad bits, man it’s buggy as shit and it doesn’t look like they’ve bothered to fix it which is amazing given the time it’s been since release. BB-1 bugs out all the fucking time, jumping off and on your shoulder regularly like he’s broken. There’s some platforming issues that sometimes crop up, and too many sodding sliding down stuff sections that often break with stupid bugs. As a supposed AAA game this doesn’t cut the mustard at all.

This is kinda difficult to rate because it’s really good and yet has some really annoying annoyances. I feel that because I dropped the difficulty day to get it over and done with I’d have to give it a solid 6/10 yet to was worth playing and I enjoyed a great deal of it. If they did more of these Star Wars games I’d be into them. Probably the best Star Wars game since... that other one. The Doom clone one.

It’s the remaster of the Saturn original. It took 42 minutes to clear it and I only died once. Don’t play this, play Panza Dragoon Octa cause that’s fucking ace and this isn’t.

Is it actually worth playing? My pal has been asking me to try it but it's always updating when I bother to turn it on.

I'm playing through it at the moment with 3 friends. There's a lot of 'Go there, get this, press that' but if that wasn't there, it would just be endless shooting so I guess they've got to break it up somehow? Anyway, yes. I'm enjoying it.

4 players is probably one player too many. The best challenge is hard mode with zombies for one player above your count (so 3 players with 4 player zombies - the customisable difficulty is pretty great) otherwise it gets boring if you steamroll through the game (assuming you’re going for completion rather than dipping in; although you’re more likely to stick around if there’s a decent challenge).

There's a new "nightmare" setting which is one above 4 player now.

1) Xenoblade chronicles x (Wii U)
2) A way out (PC)
3) Super Mario Galaxy (Switch)
4) Vision Soft Reset (PC)

A metroidvania where you only have 20 minutes to complete it. Fortunately you're some kind of time travelling thing so you can return to points in the past with abilities you've learned. (every save point is a branch that you can return to) Clever, and would be highly recommended were it not for the huge amount of jank in the controls (Dpad only, on a xbox controller... :spew: ) and some level design horrors.

I feared that the end of the game would devolve into some speed run bullshit, but fortunately the final run through having learned everything there were no problems. and the final boss isn't subject to a time limit. Which is just as well, as I doubt it'd be making it on this list otherwise.
