PlayStation – God of War Ragnarok

By GAMES

PlayStation 5 – God of War Ragnarok review

Kratos and Atreus are back and the stakes are higher than ever. Fimbulwinter is in full effect
and Ragnarok is just around the corner. Can Kratos defy fate and bring down Odin without
becoming the monster he has left behind. Though simple this is the main story of this
behemoth of a game. The main story is around 20 hrs and is packed with entertainment from
start to finish. It also takes great steps towards uncovering the secrets of the giants and how
Atreus is important to their story.

Speaking of Atreus this game takes great leaps in new gameplay features. Notably, Atreus
as a playable character. Atreus becomes the centre of attention within a lot of this game and
with that you get to fight using him with different partners by your side. And with the partners,
there are many of them that vary throughout the game. Another important part of the game is
the new Draupnir spear which is incredibly fun to use. It provides another unique gameplay
experience whilst feeling just as powerful as the Blades of Chaos and the Leviathan axe.
And finally Kratos Atreus (and more) have significantly more customisation as well as a
much larger and rewarding skill tree.

The game play is immensely good and feels like a massive step up from the previous game.
Especially the newer moves which feel fresh even if they have been seen before. The new
enemies, monsters and bosses are very cool and provide new challenges for even the most
experienced of gamers.

I could list the positives but realistically everything about it is practically perfect. Although the
only thing some may see as a problem is the fact that the levels feel a little enclosed. Also
the graphics ( though amazing) don’t feel like a ridiculous step up from the 2018 game
especially considering this game is made on a upgraded console.

Basically to conclude, this game is awesome. The flaws are miniscule in comparison to how
amazing this game really is. If you liked the original or any action story game for that matter,
then this is a must play game and should definitely be in your game library.

DC Comic – Gotham Knights

By GAMES

DC Comic – Gotham Knights Review

Batman is dead and Gotham is distraught. The only people who can protect the city are the Gotham Knights!

The main story follows the Gotham Knights (Nightwing, Robin, Batgirl and Red Hood) as the attempt to figure out what Batman’s final mission was and how they can complete it. However in doing so they have to question many iconic Batman villains. This allows for the story to have a fun main story whilst still being able to create a variety of side missions that don’t feel forced. Along with this, the Court of Owls (Villains in the game) are incredibly menacing and appear to be almost undefeatable.

The cut scenes for this game are amazing and help with the narrative of the story. And the side quests are either random crimes or side story mission. The side story missions are lots of fun as they create further story, so there’s more gameplay – but you don’t need to finish them to beat the game.

The gameplay for Gotham Knights is absolutely incredible. All four of the Gotham Knights characters are available to play and they all have unique move sets. Robin is a stealth expert, Nightwing is fast and agile, Batgirl is a 1-on-1 brawler and Redhood a long ranger gunsman. This provides interesting gameplay given as you and your friends can co-op using your choice of the character.

Along with this, every character has special moves. There are different moves between the four characters meaning there’s thirty two in total. These provide high damage or simply just guarantee someone will lose most of their health.

Gotham Knights is created by Montreal Games unlike Arkham Knight, so there are some major UI and gameplay changes, however there are many customisable options that will allow people to experience it in the way they did with the Arkham series. Along with this, there are many missions that you may complete, without feeling that they are repetitive.

The Gotham map itself, is massive and traversing is incredibly good fun, especially after completing the knighthood challenges. My only major problem with Gotham Knights is the parkour which is both lackluster, and simply put you have to go out of your way to do it, which I believe shouldn’t be the case in a Batman game. Also Gotham Knights isn’t a console cross-play game, nor is it ‘Last Gen’ which means you’re a little bit limited on who you can play with online at the moment, which is a slight flaw for the initial release.

Overall, the story mode and gameplay is incredible and really interactive, especially as the dialogue changes, depending on the the character you play with. This game is ridiculously well put together.

This is a great game and must play for all DC Comic fans. It’s sad that there’s no console cross-play – hopefully that will change in the future with an update. Highly Recommended!!!

PlayStation 5 – The Last of Us Part 1

By GAMES

PlayStation 5 – The Last of Us Part 1 review

This game is absolutely astonishing. ‘The Last Of Us’ is a much loved game series, yet over time the graphics became less on par with much of the modern game releases. Until this new version was created.

The game follows Joel as he attempts to complete a simple mission to help a 14 year old girl called Ellie to a research facility, which quickly diverges into a vast journey through many zombie infested towns and human conflicts in an attempt to save the world from a zombie virus. Along the way players will meet many characters, some friends, some foes, and ultimately attempt to save humanity.

The Last of Us part 1 looks absolutely breathtaking. The graphics and animations are so realistic it’s like you’re just watching a TV show. Also what’s impressive, is the little extra details they’ve added into the new version of game that weren’t in the original, such as Ellie and Joel getting wet when it’s raining or when they fall in a pool of water. The combat is incredible too, with many upgrades and weapons so you’re able to beat the game in your own unique way. And finally it has incredible pacing. This is a very long story, but it does it feel like it was dragged out, nor does it feel too rushed while working through the story.

If I have any problems with the game, it’s that the human fight scenes became a bit repetitive at times. But even then, they were still very enjoyable.

Overall this is without a doubt one of the best games of all time, and it’s remake only makes it better. Anyone who enjoys playing solo adventure games needs to play this, and even if you’ve played the original, it’s well worth checking it out the new updated game to see the amazing changes.

I would easily give this 5/5 stars and recommend you try it out as soon as you can!!!

Call of Duty Warzone – Operation Monarch Godzilla vs Kong

Call of Duty Warzone – Operation Monarch Godzilla vs Kong review

Nowadays online multiplayer games all come with cosmetic items to add to the play, yet none do it better then Activision, with Warzone releasing some of the best skins in the industry. The playable skins are not always ‘Activision own brands’, as they regularly partner up with other companies to bring iconic characters to the gameplay.

The Godzilla vs Kong bundles for Call of Duty are very good. Every Warzone bundle comes with a skin as well as blueprints for the various weapons available. Past skins range from brands such as Rambo and Donnie Darko, to the Saw franchises antagonist Jigsaw. All of which are great fun to use within the Call of Duty game.

The bundles themselves don’t grant any actual advantages to the play, but they do allow players to use weapons that may not have been unlocked as yet.

Another added bonus with the blueprints are the tracers, which allow for your bullets to have different coloured trails during the combat.

Finally the bundles all come with finishers which allow for an instant kill and also give the added satisfaction of humiliating and frustrating opponents. This addition to the bundle is great as it allows you to drop a plane wing on someone or throw them around for fun.

In terms of positives, these bundles are rather affordable with each costing around seventeen pounds. They all look really cool and of course the guns are fun to use during play. 

As for negatives, realistically other then the fact they don’t grant major advantages, they are the perfect cosmetic bundles and if your a fan of any of the movies you will naturally want to own them.

It’s yet another must own game for 2022 if you’re car mad. As Harrison said, the graphics are beautiful and leave very little to the imagination. With the gameplay – it is updated, but if you’re a Gran Turismo fan you’ll know what to expect and wouldn’t want too much changed in the game. Highly Recommended!!!

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction

By GAMES

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction Review

Extraction is the latest instalment in the Rainbow Six game series and a further extension to Tom
Clancy’s highly successful war franchise of books, movies and games. This game takes place in the same universe as Rainbow Six Siege with many of the operators returning from ‘Six Siege’. However, unlike siege, this is a PVE infection survival game.

The Statue of Liberty has been attacked by a black sludge monster which spawns monsters to attack the human race. In response the government has sent out highly trained individuals to combat this with a variety of abilities, guns and grenades. Extraction is an online game where you group up with 2 other players, random fill or friends, to fight the archaeans. These creatures spawn from pod-like sacks and try to stop as you try to complete your current objective. These objectives can be carried out in 4 areas, each having 3 maps each. New York, San Francisco, Alaska and truth or consequence. You also have a large variety of weapons, charms, attachments and skins which you can unlock as you level up and play through the game.

This game has done quite a lot of things very right. For starters the gameplay looks absolutely phenomenal. The colours look rather cartoony but in a playful way rather than in a childish way which is really contrary to the disgusting Archaean’s which also look insanely good, especially with the next gen graphics with the XBox Series X or PlayStation 5 versions of the games. The abilities work very well in this game. I really enjoy using sledge to destroy walls or using elas stun mines to help me in the game. The various attachments allow players to customise their weapons to how they see fit depending on the positives or negatives of their skill and can choose the weapon they want. Also on the topic of weapons, the weapon balancing is very nice. No weapons appear to be overpowered, and likewise no weapons appear to be unusable which is a very hard thing to do in a shooter game which they pulled off very well. The skill point system is absolutely superb and definitely gives freedom to the player to see what they want to upgrade first. And finally it is absolutely amazing to play with friend’s, it’s operator system allows for even the worst of players to come in handy whilst playing.

This game can be slightly repetitive at times, though the gameplay is fun it feels like every section is the same thing. The levels are usually three main things. Rescue a lost operator, recon missions, or boss missions. All of which you get every single time you play. This wouldn’t be a particularly big problem if it wasn’t the only gameplay part of the game. The simple gameplay makes it on par with games like Call of Duty’s ‘Zombies’, however Call of Duty has the main game as well whereas Rainbow Six’s other game is behind a 60 pound paywall. The gameplay Is also incredibly hard. You play the game incredibly weak and are basically just walking around trying to not be stunned by the various gas traps and being slowed down by the sticky floor whilst being chased by a hoard of Archaean’s which can kill you insanely quickly. This isn’t exactly a problem as many people love a challenging game, but the easiest mode isn’t even that easy so it only really Caters to the more skilled individuals aside from the casual players. And finally the system for death/ loss of health is really not that good. Upon losing a mission, if your teammates don’t put you in the machine or everyone dies, you all lose one of your operators and have to save them in a later mission. This case also occurs with having to wait if someone’s badly wounded. I would have such a problem with this if it didn’t stop the fun of playing as your favourite character every time you slip up and die.

Overall this game is really good fun and certainly something everyone should play if they love games like this or Clancy. The gameplay and graphics are refreshing and the gunplay feels smooth and fit for a zombie like game. I enjoyed how it uses older game characters so fans won’t be going into totally unfamiliar ground within the world of Tom Clancy.

PS5 Midnight Black & Cosmic Red Controllers

By GAMES

PlayStation 5 – DualSense Midnight Black & Cosmic Red wireless Controllers review by Harrison

With the additions of both the ‘Cosmic Red’ and the ‘Midnight black’ controllers, PlayStation have perhaps done the impossible by making the PS5 even more desirable than before.

Both controllers keep to the iconic PS5 Design, being the same pattern just in a different colourway.

For me the ‘Cosmic Red’ controller is the clear winner of the two, being someone who has always loved a bit of red to spruce up my gaming set-up.

The ‘Midnight Black’ is equally to be gushed over, appealing to those gamers who prefer a sleeker, less in your face pattern on their gaming wear. Reminding me of a ‘suped-up’ version of the PS4’s ‘Dualshock 4’ controller with its blue light complimenting the black controller when in use.

Overall, I think these controllers are great and are definitely going to have kid’s and adult’s alike trying to convince either themselves or their parents that another controller is well worth the purchase and not just an excuse to have a pretty colour on their medium for battle, racing or whatever else you are using the controller for.

I can’t wait for the future colours to come and will definitely enjoy swinging through Manhattan or prowling through Gotham with the ‘Cosmic Red’ and ‘Midnight Black’ controllers.

PlayStation 5 DualSense Wireless Controllers Features includes:

Immersive haptic feedback

Dynamic adaptive triggers

Built-in microphone

Available now in three colours – Classic White, Midnight Black and Cosmic Red!!!

New for January 2022:

Nova Pink, Starlight Blue, and Galactic Purple DualSense wireless controllers and Midnight Black, Cosmic Red, Nova Pink, Starlight Blue and Galactic Purple PS5 console covers!!!

It looks good and fans of the Battlefield franchise will have fun – but it just feels like it needs a bit more meat added to the bone. Hopefully future updates will add to the play.
