5 Things I Hate About South Park Fractured But Whole

After experiencing what I consider one of the greatest TV show to enter a video game in South Park Stick of Truth, Once it was announced that we will get a sequel in Fractured but whole I was in great anticipation for this title to drop. I finally got around to playing the game and after multiple delays was the worth well worth it and did it live up to the standards of stick of truth well keep it locked as I look at 5 things I hate then give you my final verdict.

Still Not Perfect

For those who don’t know Fractured But Whole has been pushed back a number of times as the developers was aiming for perfection and whilst there are great attention to detail throughout the game there are just some areas which should have been addressed when considering the delay in release. I have come across a few glitches where the game has literally frozen and I have had to restart a mission a few times. Thank the lord there is an auto save feature which doesn’t mean you have to potentially redo 30 mins of gameplay since your last play. I also find small things to be a little weird such as turning off a TV whilst people watch and they don’t say anything. I feel if there was some form of comment from the viewer it would add to the overall experience feeling as if the game is polished.

Some Side Quest Feel Lacklustre

Fractured But Whole is jam packed with side quest to keep the game going for a while and I suppose side quest in any games are not the essential part of the game but more of a nice addition to keep the longevity of the game going. but with that being said I have found that there are a few filler side quests that in a sense feel that they are put there to just increase the length of the game rather than actually feeling as if they keep the excitement of the gameplay going. It got to a point where I was a little fed up of doing some of the side quest as they didn’t feel as if they added much value to the overall experience of the game.

Story Falls Off After A While

As a south park fan the first few hours in Fractured but whole kept me contempt and felt the story was pretty cool at first but as the game progressed there was periods where the story started to feel a little uninspired and not as engaging as I would have loved. The story is still overall pretty entertaining and certainly not the worse that I see in a video game but still just felt like it could have been more concise to keep the engagement high. Even when I got to the end of the game I was like it didn’t really feel like the story ever reached the heights that you thought it would reach but the story still pretty decent so don’t make me put you off.

Not As Funny As I Was Expecting

 

Stuck of the truth to me was such a hilarious game where during my first play through I was literally in stitches by the end of the game. I don’t know if it’s been toned down a little or maybe my sense of humour has died down a little but whilst I did chuckle at moments in the game I didn’t find it over the top hilarious as I was expecting. There were times where I was asking myself was that supposed to be funny. Obviously, there are going to be laugh out loud moments but I just felt that if you compare it with Stick of Truth it just felt that the jokes were just OK rather than fully hilarious throughout the game.

Easy Combat

I love the strategic approach that the developers took when structuring the combat in Fractured But Whole. The grid system is something that I grew to love and I loved the choices of moves to use to take out your opponent.

I know this game isn’t by any stretch a hardcore RPG game like final fantasy and maybe I am not playing on the hardest difficulty but in most combats that I encountered there was rarely anytime that I felt that I had to use my initiative to outsmart the energy and I still came out victorious. I just assumed considering how much strategic depth they applied to the battle

 

Overall I will say that South Park Fractured But whole is a pretty cool game. Visually the game looks epic, the game is jammed with content that will keep you occupied for hours and the battle system is super fun. I will say though as someone who loved South Park Stick of Truth I just feel that Fractured but Whole didn’t really take the series to the next level and kind of just felt like a cool game but didn’t have the same effect or impact as the first entry. Fractured but whole does improve on Stick of truth in loads of areas such as combat, the visuals and a more explorable area that doesn’t feel too but I just always felt the overall experience just miss the mark. Do I recommend the game well if you a south park fan and enjoy RPG games with elements of humour then yeah? But if you not a fan of RPG games and not really into south park and got a crazy back log of games to get through then I wouldn’t say that it’s a essential to put this game on your priory list but still feel its a game that you should consider for a future purchase as it is still a good laugh.

Is Overcooked 2 Worth Buying?

Is Overcooked 2 Worth Buying?

Oh, look, a review for a game that you are interested in. Is it going to tell you that it’s amazing or that it’s rubbish? Does it really matter? Aren’t you going to go get it anway?

Fine, allow me to entertain this charade and skip to the part that you want. Overcooked 2 is a lot of fun and you should totally check it out. Happy? Awesome sauce. If you think about it? Did the game really have a chance to be a cash grab soulless sequel? Well, yeah, of course. But this also isn’t a Rockstar Game we are talking about here. You’re not playing Overcooked 2 for its intense and thought-provoking storyline. You’re playing it because it’s a fun puzzle game full of kitchens and recipes.

Is Overcooked 2 Worth Buying?

While the game adds a lot of new features, like the new throwing mechanic, it continues with the exact same charm and gameplay that you loved about the first one. Just, you know, more of it.

Think of Overcooked 2 like a real professional kitchen, you walked in thinking it looked interesting and had an amazingly fun time and tasted some amazing food. You might have come back for a nibble from time to time, but you were looking for a reason to put on a bib, belly up to the buffet and hoe down for another glutenous time.

Is Overcooked 2 Worth Buying?

Here is the reason! Overcooked 2 is everything that you would want in a second course. It’s filling, hits the spot, and serves up enough surprises to keep even the most jaded of gaming taste buds happy. I would recommend this game, and I would also recommend some Uber Eats because I don’t know about you but all this talking about food has made me famished!

Is Overcooked 2 Worth Buying?

Now the choice of whether to not to get this game or not isn’t hard, the hard choice is what meal to order to compliment the time. Hmmm… I’ll keep you posted.

PES 2019 – 5 Positives and Negatives

Does Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 Own The Pitch?

PES 2019 – 5 Positives and Negatives

PES 2019 – 5 Positives and Negatives

Another year another PES, that seems to be the trick with most sports games nowadays. Even PES can’t escape this cycle and has got itself into creating yearly entries into the franchise, but the question is, are they getting any better? Well, through a comprehensive list of 5 different positives and negatives, we can finally decide if PES 2019 is worth purchasing or not.

To make things easier to understand, the list will list off the first 5 negatives and then follow up with the 5 positives to balance the pair out!

1. More of the Same

Let’s get the most obvious negative out of the way for most people, and that’s the fact that it’s primarily more of the same. For the most part, if you’ve played one Pro Evolution Soccer game then you’ve played them all and for fans, that’s great, as it means you simply get more of what you love. Anyone that’s played these games before, though and didn’t find themselves enjoying their time with them, then this latest iteration isn’t going to change your opinion on that.

2. Commentators are Rather Repetitive

This tends to be a regular occurrence for most sports games, but it’s just one of those things that’s hard to avoid; not that it means it’s any less irritating once you notice it. The commentators quite quickly end up repeating many of their same lines and hearing the same thing over and over again can become quite repetitive after a while. The only way to truly avoid this problem is to have them muted from the very offset.

3. Master League is no Different

Once again, the sin of making very little changes strikes again, this time around in the Master League. For instance, if you found any issues involving the Master League the first time around, you’re going to be very disappointed knowing that your cries of woe have yet to be heard. It would have been nice to see some more changes to this area of the game, but it looks like we’re going to have to wait until the 2020 version of the franchise before we see something new it seems.

4. Missing 2 Important Leagues

Over the years we’ve seen PES do its best to beat out its competition FIFA with everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, once again, PES has not got away with all of the licensing deals that they were hoping for. As a result, two of the biggest leagues in the whole game – UEFA Champions League and the Europa League – aren’t available in the game and that’s a big part of Football history right there. Missing out on such a major part of Football really hurts the game, even more so for fans of the sport and those Leagues respectively.

5. Not Enough Variety

PES’ counterparts have always been one-up on the game modes and even with the latest iteration in the franchise, that hasn’t changed much. PES has always been about pure Football and while that’s all well and good for fans of the sport, it’d be nice to have a little change of pace here and there every now again, but with PES 2019 that hasn’t fixed that unfortunate nature of the game, sadly.

PRO EVOLUTION SOCCER 2019_20180828150254

After the first 5 negatives, it’s time to move onto something more positive – the positives of the game!

1. Looks Absolutely Incredible

As is no surprise with the most updated version of a franchise, the game is going to look great, but PES 2019 is on another level. The visuals have all been updated and vastly improved, with many people saying it’s the best-looking Football game out on the market right now, with almost no competition. This year it even seems to be beating out FIFA with its visuals and graphics this time around, which isn’t an easy feat most of the time.

2. Controls Are More Refined

Once again, the controls have been refined and improved over the years, but PES 2019 really takes the cake with this one, as it really has improved the overall feel of the game immensely. Each player feels as if they have some real control behind them this time around and the way the ball feels once it’s being kicked around the pitch is unparallel. It’s an element of the game that’s hard to explain but is definitely a great improvement from some of the previous entries.

3. Updated List of Players

With another year we get another list of players, and PES once again manages to deliver for the most part some of the greatest names in Football. For casual fans of the sport this might not be a big deal but for fans of the game, they’re going to love seeing some of the best players right now right there on the pitch in some of the best visuals that the series has seen so far.

4. Just as Approachable as Ever

A great aspect of this series is just how accessible it is for any type of player. You can either know as much as Football as there is to know or you can barely know what exactly the offside rule is. Despite the clear differences between the two, no matter just how casual or hardcore of a player you are, PES 2019 is just as approachable as ever and it means you can enjoy the game, regardless of your level of knowledge. That’s the sort of approach you want from sports games; to not be afraid to learn and play them.

5. Online Has Once Again Been Improved

A known issue for some of the previous PES games were the fact that the online wasn’t nearly as stable as it should be. It really did make playing online a complete chore and that’s where sports games are meant to shine! Thankfully, though, this time around the online has greatly been improved and makes playing PES an absolute dream online – regardless if you’re playing with a complete stranger or a couple of friends.

PES 2019 – 5 Positives and Negatives

Final View

PES 2019 definitely isn’t a perfect Football game, but it’s the closest thing the market has right now. FIFA does dominate it somewhat with its licensed Leagues, but the overall gameplay is quite possibly the stronger of the two. For anyone that’s looking for a great Football title to pick up, then PES 2019 is definitely your best option as of right!

Detroit: Become Human – 5 Negatives

Is Detroit: Become Human worth buying?

Detroit: Become Human – 5 Negatives

Detroit: Become Human – 5 Negatives

Detroit: Become Human is one of the most interesting and engaging narrative titles that the industry has seen in a while, and while the game raises some interesting questions, the overall experience isn’t exactly perfect all the way through. As such, here are 5 of the biggest negatives that Detroit: Become Human just wasn’t able to avoid, unfortunately.

1. The Pacing is Off

A key feature of any narrative focused game is the pacing. When pacing is too fast, you can’t pay attention to what’s going on and the story is all over before you not. When the pacing is too slow, everything happens at a snail’s pace and you never get anything done, thus leading to a boring story. While Detroit: Become Human doesn’t come across as a boring game, not at all, but the pacing is so up and down at times that it makes it somewhat hard to keep track and carry on at all times of the game.

2. Movement is a Pain At Times

When it comes to playing games, there’s nothing more infuriating than when your character isn’t listening to what you’re telling them, whether that’s through movement or not and at times, Detroit: Become Human can have very inconsistent controls. Your character just doesn’t do as they’re told and while it doesn’t have a big impact on a lot of the scenes, it just throws the whole feeling of the game off for a few moments and is hopefully going to be something that gets patched soon.

3. Forced to Replay Entire Chapters for Different Choices

A great part about this game is the vast amount of choice you have at any one time, allowing for players to quite literally shape every single event in the game to see just what kind of ending they will receive. So, with a game like this, you’re bound to want to play it through more than a couple of times, just to see the kind of changes you can make. Unfortunately, though, if you want to see those changes, you’re going to need to force yourself through some of the more repetitive parts of the game and it can really make repeat playthroughs a chore to deal with, which is a real shame if you’d like to see all of your options for the story.

Detroit: Become Human – 5 Negatives

4. Choices Don’t Match up with Speech

A problem many games that give the player the option to choose what they say is that they don’t always match up to the text preview. When you decide to say one thing it might come out a lot more aggressive than you intended, and if you’re trying to play a nice guy all the way through, it can be really frustrating to suddenly have your character scream at someone when at no point you would have agree to it otherwise. Thankfully this doesn’t happen too often, but when it does, it makes you detest the system just that little bit more, as with a game like Detroit: Become Human, everything you say is important to the story.

Detroit: Become Human – 5 Negatives

5. Quick-Time Events Quickly Grow Old

QTE’s have been a feature in gaming for as long as anybody can remember, but they aren’t exactly remembered as being the fondest creation in gaming. With that in mind, players are quickly going to get tired of the QTE’s the game regularly throws at you. What makes them even worse is that they aren’t particularly easy quick-time events at all times and by messing up those QTE’s it can affect the story if you’re not too careful, and that’s definitely bound to frustrate quickly.

Detroit: Become Human – 5 Negatives

Final Verdict

Overall, Detroit: Become Human has some problems here and there, but that hasn’t stopped it from being a great narrative experience that shouldn’t be missed out on. For anyone that can look past these small issues, you’re bound to enjoy a good story, with some well-written characters.
