Vampyr PS4 Game Review

I enjoyed the game for what it was not what it could be. Yes, the game has a very slow pace, the combat needs a little polishing, but it had something that I needed to see till the end. The story hooked me, right from the start.

The Xp needed to upgrade my powers between missions was small. I felt the game did so to tempt the gamer into killing folks. I did so early, and learned that many of my decisions have consequences. In killing and giving in to my urge, I set off a chain reaction, many of the people in that neighborhood were affected.

Vampyr has great atmosphere, it was very immersive, each street, building and clothing, captured that time period, which was London around 1918 perfectly. The combat becomes better as you upgrade and acquire new powers.

Overall, I truly enjoyed this game. Normally, I wouldn’t enjoyed a game that heavily relies on interrogation type gameplay, but in Vampyr it total worked.

Game Overview: London, 1918. You are newly turned Vampyr Dr. Jonathan Reid. As a doctor, you must find a cure to save the city’s flu-ravaged citizens. As a Vampyr, you are cursed to feed on those you vowed to heal.

Darksiders: Warmastered Edition Game Review

Darksiders is a third-person action-adventure game. The story is centered around the tale of the apocalypse, were you play as War, one of the Four Horsemen. The story begins as War is summoned, he arrives to find the apocalypse has started as demons and the Hellguard fight while humanity is destroyed.

War is told that the seven seals was not broken, and is blamed for the ordeal. War is given a second change and sent back to earth to find out what exactly happened. In Darksiders 2, the storyline is connected, as Death is trying to clear his bother War of the crimes from the first game.

Both games are very similar, both in weapons, gampelay, puzzle solving. Darksiders 2 is a more polished game, both in gameplay and graphics and overall more fluid.

I was a fan of the first Darksiders game, I never got a chance until now to play the sequel. It was a real shame that the trilogy never finished, I wish the rest of the other houseman’s story got told through game releases.

Closing Comments: This is a great collection for fans of hack and slash games.

Dead Rising 4 Game Review

Frank West is back as the protagonist in Dead Rising. Frank now teaches journalism at a college, were one of his students Vick, lies to him about going out to play mini golf. In actually, she wants frank to help here uncover a tip she got of something weird happening in Willamette.

Frank is still spewing plenty of quips and one-liners throughout the gameplay. This time around Frank’s camera has got a few upgrades, thermal and night vision. It helps aide in investigations. The camera is still fun, taking pictures of enemies, people and selfies with zombies is an art onto itself.

One huge difference in this game from past Dead Rising games is that the 72 hours timer has been removed. I actually like how they removed the 72 hour timer as it now gives you time to fully explore the world. I felt that I didn’t have to rush around, I can now mow down zombies on my own pace.

Killing zombies is what the game is about, it’s the different ways you kill hordes of zombies that make the game so fun. The game does an excellent job of making sure that you’ll always in action, it’s never a dull moment, only when you talk and have to do some investigation. The gameplay is engaging and enjoyable, the Christmas themed mall hit’s it perfect.

Frank has a ton of outrageous weapons he can craft by combining two objects. Glass Knuckles, Blambow, Ice Chain Gun, the list goes on. There is also an Exo suit that can be equipped, that will allow you to carry powerful weapons only accessible while the suit is equipped. One thing the game does so well, is that there is also a variation of ways to kill.

The leveling up system gives you a reason to keep grinding, as the skill points will help you increase health and other attributes. You’ll level up pretty fast, it’s really not a grind. I was able to spend a handful of skill points in the skill tree in the first half hour.

Closing Comments: Dead Rising 4 is a fun and addictive game.
