Halo: The Master Chief Collection Review

Halo: The Master Chief Collection3D3 Industries, Xbox Game Studio Boy, is this compilation of games a whopper! In total, the Halo: The Master Chief Collectionincludes 65+ campaign missions and around 120 multiplayer maps. I’ve reviewed each of them in chronological order (along with their pluses and minuses) according to the series lore. By the way,…

Beyond the Wire (Early Access) Review

Beyond the WireRedstone Interactive, Offworld Industries I must start this review off by saying that I may be a little biased towards any first-person shooter that Offworld Industries is involved with. In a world of triple-A, arcade-y shooters such as the gigantic Battlefield and Call of Duty franchises, it’s great to see that there’s still…

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint – Ultimate Edition Review

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint – Ultimate EditionUbisoft I’ve been a fan of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon games for years, although lesser so more recently. I played the original title, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon (2001), and fell in love with its patient, highly tactical gameplay set across large-scale maps. It forced you to communicate with your friends…

Remnant: From the Ashes – Subject 2923 Review

Remnant: From the Ashes – Subject 2923Gunfire Games/Perfect World Entertainment Remnant: From the Ashes was one of the major surprise hits of 2019. Many people were deductive in their description of it and said (in a good way) that it was basically a Soulslike with guns. Actually, there were many differences that separated it from…

SYNTHETIK: Legion Rising Review

Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare Review – A Brilliant Combination of Genres

Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare KK Game Studio KK Game Studio’s Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare game had an interesting concept when I first spied it back in early 2018. Although it was still in Steam’s Early Access program, you could not only manage modern-day mercenaries from a top-down strategic point-of-view, when things went hot you could zoom down…

Squad (Alpha 15) Review – The Best Military-themed Shooter Gets Even Better

Squad (Alpha 15) Offworld Industries As some who logged thousands of hours on what I consider to be the best military-themed video game (and favorite game of all times to boot) I’ve ever played—Project Reality—I was sad to see it eventually die off. PR was actually a Battlefield 2 mod (the last great Battlefield game)…

Deathgarden: Blood Harvest (Early Access) Review – A Fast Twitcher’s Paradise

Deathgarden: Blood Harvest Behavior Digital Asymmetrical multiplayer games are hard to pull off, at least that’s the way it seems. Having a lone killer go up against multiple weaker enemies is a cool concept, but many folks don’t know how to mix the right ingredients in order to achieve that special thing called balance.  Many…

Squad (Alpha Update 12) Review – A Massive Update to an Already Epic Shooter

Squad (Alpha Update 12) Offworld Industries As far as military-themed shooters go, a Battlefield 2 mod called Project Reality is the greatest of all of them, in my opinion. It featured huge maps, vehicle-based, combined arms warfare, and a strong emphasis on communication and teamwork. After a full ten years of development, PR’s player base…

Ground Branch (Early Access) Review – One of the Most Promising Shooters Available

Ground Branch Blackfoot Studios It’s hard to believe that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six debuted twenty years ago (1998). It set the bar pretty darn high as far as tactical shooters were concerned. Just as with many genres, tactical shooters have become rather dumbed down as they became more and more commercialized in order to attract…
