    Apr 14th, 2021 at 15:06:46     -    Medal of Honor (360)

    This game is not great. Its a pretty standard first person shooter and is very obviously a Call of Duty clone. Only this game does everything on a subpar level when compared to CoD. The gunplay is stiff and awkward, and the graphics are very bad for their time. This game came out in the same year as Mass Effect 2 and Call of Duty Black Ops, and it looks more like it came out in 2004.

    The story is also quite bad. Its a pretty standard military shooter that glorifies the US war effort in Afghanistan. I would say though that is the main redeeming feature of this game. Unlike the present day based CoD games, Medal of Honor tries to reflect reality. Though it largely fails, the effort is appreciated.

    I beat this game in 3-4 hours, so there really wasn't much too it. I would only recommend playing this if you have nothing else to play. Its a last resort type of game.

    A game about mining in space as a group dwarves!? And players can embark on this adventure with up to 3 friends? What's not to love!

    I played this game with my friends for 2 and a half hours yesterday and we had a blast! The gameplay is to tier in this game. The gunplay is fun, each player-class has very specific and useful jobs, and the art-style is beautiful. This is a gamepass game so none of us had to buy it. Gotta love gamepass!

    We gonna keep playing for sure!

    Apr 12th, 2021 at 09:26:16     -    Forza Horizon (360)

    I love the Forza Horizon games. It was very interesting to see where it all started. Surprisingly there are a lot of parts of the game that hold up really well.

    The gameplay is a big standout. All of the car stats feel impactful, and different. Its very playable and fun. Each car itself even has a unique feel. Talking about the cars, the car models also hold up very well! They all look realistic, and sounds great. Though the models lack the depth of cars in modern games, they still look great.

    The environments in this game suffer from something that a lot of games from this generation did: there isn't a wide variety in the environmental color pallet, so pretty much everywhere on the game map feel the same. This also adds to the fact that there isn't a crazy variety in race tracks the player races on. These are minor things that probably only a 2021 gamer would complain about.

    To my surprise, the game features a light storytelling element that involved beating a handful of voice acted racers. Each race involves facing off against one of these people. In order to progress, the player has to beat the racers. This kind of forced me to keep the difficulty at medium to ensure I beat the racers to progress, when I usually would've played on the harder difficulties.

    I'm not sure how much one could acquire Forza Horizon for these days, but if it is $10 or less, I would say it is totally worth the purchase and play.

    Apr 8th, 2021 at 10:54:16     -    Yakuza 0 (XBONE)

    Well I have finished the game. It took me a solid 27 hours to be, so its pretty significant for a Japanese brawler. The story was great all the way through. There were some melodramatic and cheesy moments throughout, but these didn't hurt the game overall.

    The combat was fun and only started to feel a little boring towards the end of the game (I was playing on the easiest difficulty to save time).

    The most impressive thing I would say is that with every character in the story, I liked at one point or another. There aren't really any plain caricatures in the main story. Everyone has motivation, and a lot of the time it makes sense.

    The game world is great! I haven't ever been to 1980s Tokyo, but this game gave me a glimpse into what it was like.

    Like any good Japanese game, Yakuza 0 takes itself very usuriously serious. I felt just about every emotion possible while playing through the game. Its a special experience, and I look forward to continuing my journey through the Yakuza series.
