Bus Simulator 21

Bus Simulator 21

Bus Simulator 21 builds upon the solid foundation of Bus Simulator 18 while adding plenty of new content as well as refinements and improvements. Along with a huge new city, players can also return to Seaside Valley from the previous game. In addition, the streamlined interface and extra information make it easier than ever to plan profitable routes. Despite some rough edges, the game is very engaging and should satisfy simulation fans as well as players looking for a different type of driving experience.

Gameplay: Plan bus routes and then hop in and try to drive them as efficiently as possible.

Graphics: The cities are huge and detailed, but some of the textures could be better.

Sound: Lots of dialog for NPCs, but they can become repetitive after a while

Need for Speed™ Most Wanted

Need for Speed™ Most Wanted

Need for Speed: Most Wanted might share a name with the 2005 original and feature police chases, but that’s about where the similarities end. The single-player mode feels bland and empty while the multiplayer mode has more in common with Burnout Paradise than Need for Speed. In fact, the entire game feels like an inferior Need for Speed themed imitation of Burnout Paradise, which makes it hard to recommend.

Gameplay: Very lacking compared to previous entries in the series.

Graphics: The graphics are good, but the overall style of the game is very bland.

Sound: The usual selection of licensed tunes, but nothing exceptional

DEATH STRANDING

DEATH STRANDING

Death Stranding is an open-world, third-person title where Hideo Kojima had free reign with his artistic vision. The result is a title that mixes complex story elements with rather straightforward gameplay. Simply carting packages from one point of the map to another might not sound like fun, and frequently it isn’t, but somehow it ends up being very compelling. The story will also keep players guessing and just when you think the game can’t get any stranger something new happens that leaves you shaking your head in disbelief. It’s not a game for everyone, but players who get hooked are in for the ride of their life.

Gameplay: Bewildering and frustrating at times, but also addictive, rewarding, and unlike anything else.

Graphics: The port from PS4 to PC has resulted in a game that looks even better than before.

Sound: Great voice acting and an incredible soundtrack

Eastshade

Eastshade

Eastshade is a peaceful first-person adventure game where players get to explore an island as an artist who specializes in realistic paintings. The game is without risk and danger, so the focus is very much on exploration and interacting with the unique cast of anthropomorphic animals. Some players might find it a little too slow-paced and boring, but despite some technical shortcomings, it is still a great game.

Gameplay: Very peaceful and relaxing.

Graphics: Quite beautiful at times.

Sound: The soundtrack is mellow and the voice acting decent for the most part
