Observer: System Redux Review – Dystopian Murder Mystery

Observer: System Redux is a decent game. The combined Bladerunner and Lovecraftian elements will have any fan of the giddy thanks to its incredible implementation. While a few elements personally irked, the overall experience is wonderful. Dialogue and world-building expertly craft a narrative experience that is perfect for murder mystery games like this. The game has heavy Myst and/or Egypt vibes in its execution and should be perfect for anyone who is a fan of classic point and click adventures. The attention to detail in this game is particularly incredible. While it is no masterpiece, the fact that it is one of Rutger Hauer’s final works only adds to his legacy. It is most certainly worth a play.

Immortals Fenyx Rising Review – Ashes of Greatness

Immortals Fenyx Rising is an incredible title. While the aesthetic might not be for everyone and its open-world nature will eventually become repetitive, the game is so chock-full of optional content and beautiful vistas that this eventuality will take a long time to reach. The story is wonderfully narrated and crafted to work incredibly well with the graphical design of the game too. Better still, the humorous approach to ancient Greek mythology alongside the bold and colourful aesthetic; all wonderfully complement each other in ways that only Legend of Zelda games have been capable of in the past. It is rare for any company, let alone Ubisoft, to bring out a brand-new Intellectual Property and for it to reign supreme right from the start. However, Immortal Fenyx Rising certainly manages this seemingly impossible feat with aplomb. Fenyx is a relatable character, and the incredible narration between Zeus and Prometheus are wonderfully nostalgic for any lover of Saturday Morning Cartoons. Playing on the new consoles certainly helps to make loading into the game as convenient as possible, while the gameplay itself constantly makes players want to come back for more. Immortals Fenyx Rising is very near perfect, and ticks all the right boxes for a game that is gorgeous, enjoyable, addictive and highly entertaining.
