DARK SOULS™: Prepare To Die™ Edition

DARK SOULS™: Prepare To Die™ Edition

Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition is an unforgiving game that punishes mistakes harshly, but players who stick with it will find a massive world filled with very satisfying challenges to overcome. It can be an incredibly obtuse game for newcomers, but plenty of guides are available to help out. Unfortunately, this edition is a very shoddy port, but thankfully, the REMASTERED edition is available.

Gameplay: Harsh, unforgiving, punishing but very addictive and rewarding for those who persevere.

Graphics: Although dark and oppressive, the game is also filled with many beautiful and memorable locations.

Sound: Features a great soundtrack and sound effects as well as good voice acting

Submerged: Hidden Depths

Submerged: Hidden Depths

Submerged: Hidden Depths builds on the solid foundation of the first game with a bigger world, better visuals, and more things to do. Unfortunately, the game is still devoid of challenges, but its accessibility and lack of threats make for a very relaxing experience. While it will not appeal to everyone, it is a great title for fans of the first game or anyone looking for something calming to play between more challenging titles.

Gameplay: The game is devoid of any challenges but enjoyable and relaxing to play.

Graphics: Beautiful environments coupled with excellent water and weather effects.

Sound: The haunting soundtrack and immersive sound effects complement the visuals nicely

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

Lake

Lake

Lake is a game about delivering mail and parcels in a small Oregon town. There are no life or death decisions, a mystery to solve, or even challenges to conquer, which leaves players free to drive around, soak in the beautiful surroundings and connect with the locals. The result is a very slow-paced game, but delivering stuff is strangely addictive and getting to know the inhabitants of Providence Oaks is just as much fun. The game is not without some technical issues, but the overall experience is very charming.

Gameplay: Straightforward, but delivering mail is fun, as is interacting with the locals.

Graphics: Character designs and environments look great, but the facial animations and lip-syncing could be better.

Sound: Superb voice acting and a very fitting, albeit limited, soundtrack

Prince of Persia (2008)

Prince of Persia (2008)

While the gameplay is a departure from previous Prince Of Persia titles, the lavish locations and excellent characters combine to make this a great game. Some people will hate the simplified gameplay, while others will love the new style.

Gameplay: A Departure from the series, but still good.

Graphics: The art direction is really good.

Sound: Great music and audio

A Plague Tale: Innocence

A Plague Tale: Innocence

A Plague Tale: Innocence is not only a great looking game with a unique setting, but the strong narrative focus makes it very engrossing too. The combination of stealth and puzzle-solving could easily have been very annoying, but barring a few frustrating sections the game is actually quite entertaining. It is also unrelentingly grim, which might deter some players, but between all the horror there’s also some heartwarming moments. Single-player narrative focussed games such as A Plague Tale: Innocence is becoming rarer, so don’t miss out on the opportunity to play this one.

Gameplay: A nice mixture of stealth and puzzles that never really veers too far in either direction.

Graphics: The visuals are extremely detailed and the environments surprisingly varied.

Sound: Good voice acting and some soaring tunes

Strange Brigade

Strange Brigade

Strange Brigade is an action-packed third-person shooter that is at its best when played in co-op with some friends. It features a nice assortment of characters, each with their own special traits, as well as a large assortment of undead enemies to eradicate. The inclusion of traps makes for a fun addition to the experience and the action also slows down occasionally for some puzzle solving. While Strange Brigade doesn’t excel in any particular area, it’s still a lot of fun and comes highly recommended.

Gameplay: Lots of action, but best enjoyed with friends in co-op.

Graphics: The visuals look great, but some more variety would have been even better.

Sound: The narrator steals the show, but the music and sound effects are good too
