5.0 out of 5 stars Cutscenes are projected like a movie, 7 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yakuza 0 (PS4) (Video Game)
They really set the bar a lot higher this time round. Graphics look slick and gameplay is fluid as ever. Cutscenes are projected like a movie, the good sort and you can tell the amount of love that went into this game. Characters are hands down one of the strongest I've seen in a video game. It's pure bliss walking down the streets of Tokyo, almost as if you're really there.

It's nice to see developers actually take the time to polish up a game unlike EA...... (cough) (cough).... Andromeda

5.0 out of 5 stars it blows my mind!, 6 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sets a gold standard for rpgs around the world. The quality in terms of polish is beyond anything I've ever seen. You just need to play this game for 30 minutes and you know right off the bat, the developers actually took a great deal of care making this game.

This makes EA look like amateurs..... cough cough(andromeda).

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good introduction to see what the world of VR ..., 11 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pretty good introduction to see what the world of VR has to hold. I guess if you're thinking about investing in VR down the line, it's the cheaper option to get a taster for it. For me, it does feel like a nice gimmick but I'm not really sure how much I'd use the thing down the line. Maybe in the long run, it'd be probably wise to invest in the gaming ones as you'd get much more use out of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slick cover, 11 Aug. 2016

Suits the silver titanium version well. The cover is secure and tight, while adding that needed grip for the phone itself. Prevents the phone slipping out the pocket, well worth the buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice send off for Lightning in this epic conclusion!, 27 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The final chapter does change the formula to great extent, making 'time' a vital factor in your decision making. Combat feel more fast paced, but still maintaining the rpg effects that thrive in all final fantasy games. Customization plays a big part in this game, allowing you to experiment with all sort of load-outs.

Soundtrack is masterful and the environments are beyond amazing.

As a last entry to the 13 series, I'd have to say they really out did themselves, giving a nice send off for Lightning.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dark, dreary but engaging story. A masterpiece in terms of atmosphere!, 27 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the more darker Zelda titles but still, all Zelda games seem to capture a certain charm about them—this was no different. The Wii motion controls work to good effect, making the combat that more engaging. Puzzles I found to be quite challenging, one of the more difficult Zelda titles.

The stand out point I'd have to say is without a doubt the atmosphere of the game. Getting drawn into this world is a real treat, making your quest that more rewarding. Soundtrack is always masterful in these games so no problem there. Story did capture me from the get-go, seeing as I had no idea what the hell was going on. The darkness that surrounded the plot most definitely drew me in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Story was pretty good but the voice acting shines without a doubt, 27 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bravely Default (3DS) (Video Game)
The turn based combat does serve as strong suit towards this game, giving the user complete control of their group. Customization is beyond 'unreal' in terms of what combinations you can fish out. Story was pretty good but the voice acting shines without a doubt, portraying the characters in such a believable way.

Only criticism would be the final segment of the game, which does become repetitive to say the least. Still, I was engaged enough to put up with this as the game manages to raise the difficulty as means to get you really thinking on how to tackle the next boss. The challenge is clearly there and most would welcome the change of pace.

In the end, I did feel like I'd been on an epic journey, amounting to over fifty hours—a sign of a great game.

the word flow in this is very good, although found myself getting a little confused at times. each story is different and i kind of like the way the author has done it. worth a re-read.

This review is from: The Mind Readers (Kindle Edition)
i started reading and just couldn't let it go. it's really easy to follow and get a sense of what's happening. the start takes place at some sort of diner but the writer even made this seem interesting. i wanted to just carry on which is a good sign.
