  • Super Mario World
    Super Mario WorldNintendo Super NES

    After the huge good reviews that the Super Mario Bros trilogy received for the Nintendo NES, expectations for the plumber's video game for the future Super Nintendo were high. Just on the day of my birthday (although I wasn't born at the time, LOL), on August 13, 1991 the console was released along with the number four video game of the Nintendo mascot, and what to say that people had nothing to reproach the Japanese company. Most of the things that Super Mario Bros 3 did well were polished and improved in Super Mario World. In this review I will explain the reason for what I am saying and defend my position of why Super Mario World for Super Nintendo is a great title. For starters, the soundtrack took full advantage of the improved sound effects of the Super Nintendo. The music fits in with the environment and helps the player...

  • Final Fantasy VII
    Final Fantasy VIIPlayStation 1

    Final Fantasy VII is, without a doubt, the most important tabletop console RPG in history, or at least to date. The game was hailed since its release as it is still hailed today. Although I was not even born, I know that people were amazed at the first video game in the 3D franchise, and it's not for nothing, people felt like the future with those sections that it owns. Final Fantasy VII marked in an important way to almost all RPGs to date, the reasons why and how it did we will analyze it in this review. Taking advantage of the fact that the game's remake came out recently (and that I don't have money to play it: P) I will review the game for Playstation. I will analyze each section objectively, in order to have a general note that will demonstrate the quality of the game. Starting strong, I will say...

  • Song of Saya
    Song of SayaPC

    Song of Saya (Saya no Uta) is a visual novel, meaning there's not much in terms of 'gameplay', just clicking to continue. The story however is amazing, it focuses on Fuminori who has recently recovered from an experimental neurosurgery. Fuminori's perception of the world changes harshly, every he sees is a hellish landscape now. Even his friends appear to him as Lovecraftian horrors, until he meets Saya. An angel-like being who appears as human to Fuminori, from the very start when Saya is introduced you can tell there's something unnatural about her as the genius composers from Zizz Studio make her theme a very unsettling but beautiful piece I couldn't help but be unnerved by it. The game focuses on their relationship (even explicit aspects). Fuminori also cannot stomach his food anymore as his tastebuds are also affect by his 'curse', eventually he finds Saya eating something and joins her....

  • Final Fantasy VII Remake
    Final Fantasy VII RemakePlayStation 4

    DisTorTion - Final Fantasy VII Remake Final Fantasy VII Remake was one of my most anticipated games of all time, when it was first announced in 2015. Throughout the waiting time for the game all the way up to it's release, I was expecting an exact remake of the original, akin to other Square Enix remakes. I was initially confused when this game was announced to be released as a series. But after this first instalment, I'm salivating at the chance to see the rest. Gameplay Final Fantasy VII Remake has one of the best combat systems I've seen in any modern RPG. The combat reminds me a lot of Kingdom Hearts, however the combat still is able to have a distinctive Final Fantasy VII feel with the Magic, ATB, and Limit systems, all of which blend together beautifully. Throughout my two play-throughs of the game, the combat never felt stale at any...

  • Bloodborne
    BloodbornePlayStation 4

    A true masterpiece, a true genius in terms of visual design, level design, soundtrack, gameplay, structure, story and setting. Look, I am not here to say what the game is about, I have come here to explain what makes Bloodborne special and different. This game is not only a masterpiece for all the playable aspects that it presents, in addition, Bloodborne has its own philosophy which is explained through the story and the gameplay. It is the fact that the game is demanding, that it is hard on you, that it asks you to make an effort, that it forces you to face your nightmares, that's the message of Bloodborne, that problems can't be left aside, they must be faced. That feeling after finishing killing a boss that had cost you hours and hours of trying and frustration, that feeling of walking down a street that was once full of perfectly...

  • Persona 5
    Persona 5PlayStation 3

    The Persona series games have always been a staple for me growing up- I spent pretty much all of my teen years playing them and I'm pretty attached. So of course, I bought Persona 5 the day it released. Playing through it for the first time, I immediately fell in love with the new mechanics left out in 3 & 4, such as demon negotiations, hiding in shadows, guns, confidant skills, and sneak attacking enemies. Palaces in general are *so* fun; a much needed improvement to the grindy & samey dungeons of the past. The UI was stylish and looked flashy and fun without being a pain to read, the art was gorgeous, and the story immediately draws you in. Persona games have a bad habit of having a very long intro before getting to some actual plot meat, but Persona 5 brings interesting plot right to you almost right...

  • Super Metroid
    Super MetroidNintendo Super NES

    I am totally amazed that this game was overlooked the first time I saw it. Taking advantage of the fact that we will not have Metroid until God knows how long, I will review a video game for the first time in my life, and the one chosen for the review is the second game in this franchise to go out to table consoles. Super Metroid is one of the greatest resources that Nintendo obtained in its war against Sega, its great rival at the time. Despite the huge and vast catalog of the Super Nintendo, Super Metroid knew how to stand out, and also compete against others of its kind such as The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past or Megaman X. Why? That is what we will find out in today's review. To start we will name one of its sections, the sound one. The music...

  • Persona 5 Royal
    Persona 5 RoyalPlayStation 4

    Persona 5 Royal is an updated version of the original Persona 5. It adds remixed palaces (the game's name for dungeons), new locations, multiple new smaller mechanics, a new confidant line for Akechi, two new characters that add to the story immensely, and adds an extra (unlockable, but missable) semester to the original game. A few story inconsistencies are fixed as well. They help the original game's content mesh well with the two new characters and transition into the new content without any major road bumps. The story of the original P5 - engaging, emotional resonant, slow-burning and distinctly anime-like - is here in its entirety, and now has the above aforementioned additions which help to really show and highlight the game's premise and message which I don't wish to spoil. You'll experience a story where you meet several characters, go through many arcs with them and make choices along...

  • Highway Blossoms
    Highway BlossomsPC

    Highway Blossoms is the kinetic novel to end all kinetic novels. I have a hard time scrolling through endless text, but Highway Blossoms was engaging all the way to the end. I was able to play all of it in a two-hour sitting, fully focused on it and nothing else. The game comes with English audio (the game takes place in the United States, specifically the Southwest) that doesn't come off as awkward or out of place at all. The game has only about ten characters but each of them are brimming with life. I enjoyed the various allusions to Southwest life, as demonstrated by the story-relevant soundtrack filled with western tunes. The romance is absolutely adorable, I was really rooting for Amber and Marina to get together. The story flows very smoothly, allowing for their romance to slowly blossom over time. I enjoyed learning about each character's personal struggles...

  • Eternal Senia
    Eternal SeniaPC

    What I liked: - The music is really great, relaxing and fits the atmosphere. - The fighting system is simple but nice, some cool abilities of the character AND the enemies, I expected the average RPG maker combat so this is a nice change. - The images of the characters are well made and fit the characters. I really liked seeing that every ending had a different picture. - The characters are sympathetic. - Some jokes here and there are always nice to lighten the mood. - The difficulty of the bosses is tuned right, had to retry some times at the last of them. - The "Bonus Room" is awesome! An author of a game sharing his thoughts about everything is something I love to read after I beat the game. - The author thanking me to play his game, you are welcome! What I am not sure about: - No spoilers about the endings here, but I did...

  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DNintendo 3DS

    I completed this game a long time ago... This remake gave us the possibility to play this masterpiece of Nintendo 64... About gameplay. Something that is trademark from the saga is the exploration and dungeons... To complete the game you need some objects and find the way to keep going, and for this you need to explore and what it is more important, think. It is amazing how amazing are the dungeons , because in all of them you have to use their main object to beat them. All the bosses of the game are very enjoyable, needing an specefic object to beat them, like the dungeons. The combat is the same as the original game, dodging , blocking and giving hits with the sword, the slingshot and the bow are also the same , but the difference is that you can use the motion of your 3ds or 2ds to...

  • God of War
    God of WarPlayStation 2

    I have recently completed this game and now I know why everyone recommended it. Let's start with the gameplay. It is obviously based in hack n' slash mechanics and has a lot of fast paced action, but this game has something that I love, i'm talking about the different ways to kill your enemies and the different abilities that you can use. This offers you the possibility of play with your own style. This game also innovated in terms of upgrading your weapons and abilities with its leveling system. You can collect orbs to increase their level. All of this without mentioning the finishings, boss fights and little puzzles. This game has a little bit of adventure in some moments , for example in moments that you find a secret orb chest , minotaur horns and gorgon's eyes. And there are also some easy puzzles in some parts of the...

  • Momoka

    Momoka is a RPG Maker game made for the 2018 Indie Jam. Moca (the developer of the game) has expressed an interest in making a longer, more in-depth version of Momoka, but as it is, I am very impressed with what they have managed to accomplish in about an hour of gameplay. First off, Momoka is along the lines of pixel horror RPG games like MISAO that rely on the sexual assault of teenage girls to work. I acknowledge this because I feel that your opinion of the game will vary on how you feel about this trope. I personally think it can feel like fetishism, but nonetheless I enjoyed the game, so I'll just keep this here as a warning. The game's sexual assault content is borderline comical in how absurd it is, but it works because of the dialogue. The teenage cast of this game are very relatable and...

  • Vampyr

    --Graphics and Sound-- Vampyr looks great, and the city of London is amazing. It just captures the feel and look it is going for completely. The sound is also completely nailed... The music in the background sets a dark mood which is fitting of the themes. All the guns and vampire powers sound great. Only one bad thing, the enemies have limited dialogue. You'll hear "Die leech!" so many times... --Gameplay-- Most of the game is running around the map, which while small has so many twists and turns and backtracking that it feels larger than it is... and that is not a good thing. There is simply too much running back and forth and getting into battles with the same three enemy encounters over and over again... Very tiresome. At the end of the game, I just ran through because I was so sick of it. The combat is fun at first,...

  • The Sinking City
    The Sinking CityXbox One

    --Graphics and Sound-- The look of the game is Lovecraftian horror come to life... flooded streets, disgusting monsters, with tentacles and slime, people who look downtrodden and even some rather... fishy. Almost every part of Oakmont is damaged by flooding and walking through the huge city has an ominous feel. The water damaged city is fully brought to life with the sounds in this. Everything is so wet and dirty, and combining with the look of the city feels so damp and gross. Creepy background music and the monster sounds fill the city. Absolutely top-notch atmosphere. --Gameplay-- -Cases - This game's version of missions or quests. You actually have to place the quest markers for yourself, based on the evidence you find and your best guess based on the directions you're given. There is also a "Mind Palace", this holds your clues to be combined by you to gain evidence. No hand-holding. Much...

  • GreedFall

    --Graphics and Sound-- The graphics and sound here are really just your standard fare. It is a budget game so that is hardly surprising. The environments are often repeated, you will see the same foresty looking place with rocks over and over, and most of the building layouts are the exact same. The art design is rather cool though, the technology clashing with the magical aspects leads to seeing all kinds of varied characters running about. --Gameplay-- As it is an RPG, there is a lot of running around, questing, getting into and out of trouble, with a lot of looting and gearing, you know the usual. It is also super fun. The leveling system lets you put points into magic, tech, or warrior skills. You can freely distribute it among any of them and create a hybrid character if you wish, I stuck to magic on my first playthrough and could...

  • Octopath Traveler
    Octopath TravelerNintendo Switch

    --Graphics and Sound-- Can't be unbiased about this, sprite graphics are my favorite and they are done as well as can be here. Every zone is colorful and alive, and I stopped just to look at it often. The game's look is art. The music is standard fare but it never annoyed me playing the same stuff over and over as some games do. It's only voiced acted lightly, mostly in important parts. There are English and Japanese voices to choose from, and the characters say things in combat while doing moves, which also didn't annoy me, which is rather amazing considering how many battles you go through. --Gameplay-- The world map is rather large, and you can wander it as you please. Each area has a fixed level, which is the only thing stopping you from going to some places too early. Still, you can run through, and equip a passive that lowers...

  • Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order
    Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black OrderNintendo Switch

    --Graphics and Sound-- This game looks amazing and the voice acting and sounds of the heroes are well done. They chose a more cartoony look, but it works well for this game. Most games on the switch look so so, this one is awesome. All your expected catchphrases and superpower sounds are in there. --Gameplay-- Marvel UA3 is an action RPG and a rather basic one at that. You pick your team of four superheroes, and then your game mode. Story or the games many trials, which are different levels with objectives and sometimes handicaps. You have limited attacks, a light and heavy, and four skills you gain from leveling. They range from the usual great to useless as usual in these kinds of games. Now there are all kinds of team-up attacks called synergies, and winning is based on spamming these. Some enemies and all bosses have what is called a stagger bar,...

  • How To Date A Magical Girl!
    How To Date A Magical Girl!PC

    This game is not what you expect. There is a good reason it has a disclaimer of disturbing images and adult characters. As someone who enjoys Visual Novels, I was excited to give this game a try, especially when I noticed it uses stats and building relationship points instead of your typical dialogue choices. The story of going to a magical girl school intrigued me, and I was not disappointed. PROS: 1. Cover Gallery pictures are beautiful. Each magical girl sparkles and shines with her own unique costume, and I love it. The art drew me to this game. 2. More happens in this game than simple dating. While choosing a girl is the only real choice you can make, the story extends beyond dating to magical girl types, battles, and a type of warfare. 3. Plot twists are well-done. I did anticipate anything that happened near the middle, towards the end of the...

  • Mother 3
    Mother 3Nintendo Gameboy Advance

    Mother 3, the final installment from the Mother/EarthBound series was released April 20, 2006. It's considered by many as one of the best JRPGs of all time, aswell as being one of (If not the most) well rated games here on MyVideoGameList. The game was created by Shigesato Itoi and it's considered a masterpiece. But does it deserve all the praise? The answer is yes, no doubt Just to make things clear, Mother 3 for me is not only the best JRPG of all time, not only the best videogame of all time, it is one of the best works of art ever made. Mother 3 tells the story of a boy called Lucas, along with his friends Kumatora, Duster and Boney and their fight against the mysterious Pigmask army. Storywise, it's perfect. Mother 3 tells us a surprisingly deep and dark story, especially for a Nintendo game. It's full of reflections, messages and...

  • Pokémon Shield
    Pokémon ShieldNintendo Switch

    !!!DISCLAIMER!!! - This review was made after I completed a no-grinding and no-Dynamaxing run. I avoided fights when I felt like I was overleveled or the game was too easy and I never willingly entered a wild battle unless I was trying to catch something. I didn't do any Dynamaxing for any of the gym battles, Champion Cup battles, Champion battles, or whatever else. I did use Dynamaxing during Raid Battles. My final team ended up being Rillaboom, Centiskorch, Runerigus, Grimmsnarl, Darmanitan, and Grapploct if that helps put into perspective how much harder or easier my playthrough could have been. * Music: 7/10 * The songs themselves are very good, but there are some weird quirks in the game. For example, the ascent up Rose Tower only plays one continuous uninterrupted song. Small things like that bring the score down. Not...

  • Resident Evil HD Remaster
    Resident Evil HD RemasterPC

    The survival horror classic that started the entire genre. But what is it exactly that made this game so great? Now I don't wanna talk about the story in case someone hasn't played this yet, so I'll be focusing on other things in this review, that being the actual gameplay. Well, first of all, the atmosphere. It's always there, starting from the first minutes of the game. The spooky dark ambient soundtrack, the first person door opening scenes. You'll never know what's lurking on the other side of the door and it can lead to your death countless times before you start to get the hang of the "tank controls". That leads to the next thing that makes this game the memorable classic it still is to this day, which exactly are the controls. Basically, you press up (W on PC, obviously) to go forward regardless of the camera angle,...

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete EditionPC

    I played a lot of games between 2010 and 2019. I was not able to play every well-lauded game that released though. But, out of everything I did play within the whole decade, the game that stood out as the best ? and my favorite game that I have played at the time of this review ? is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It does the things I love most in games, and does them at the highest quality I have yet seen. This title is a third-person open world action-RPG with a heavy focus on narrative. Rather than just dump more setup information, I would rather you see the game in action through the video below. The video quickly sums up the world, the gameplay systems, and the plot premise in a manner that is clear, concise and easy-to-digest. In games, I heavily enjoy three main things: A strong narrative (characters/story),...

  • Tekken 7
    Tekken 7PC

    Before getting into the details of my review, I would like to clarify few things; Tekken is my favorite fighting game franchise. I freaking love Tekken and have a long history of playing the game since Tekken 2. I've also been grinding Tekken for years and today I'm going share with you a very controversial opinion concerning the 7th installment; Tekken 7 is my least favorite in the franchise and I?m not happy with what they?ve done to the game. First of all, Tekken 7 is okay, there?s no doubt. The game is very popular now and is considered a big commercial success, but? is that enough? In my honest opinion, from a somewhat veteran Tekken player, I think that Tekken has lost its way. I don't feel like playing the good old Tekken anymore. Maybe the game is evolving as time goes, adding new features and making...
