Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare Review and System Requirements

Not worth the asking price.

This game is a fun little break from the usual games I play, but given how expensive it was I expected more, a lot more. A handful of modes with a horde mode is not enough. There isn’t much to keep me gripped either, unlocking a few classes and cosmetic items isn’t enough.

The gameplay is fun but it quickly goes from fun to tedium as you begin to notice all the problems this game has.

I would rate this game much higher if it was half the price of what it is now, maybe when that happens I’ll change my score.

Verdict: 50/100

Shovel Knight Review and System Requirements

Shovel Knight is a refreshingly original 8-bit experience that steeps itself in nostalgia, paying deference to the most solid NES game experiences.

What an amazing game! As a child of the 80s, I had an original NES and LOVED Mega Man, Mario, Zelda et al in the prime of their 8-bit glory. Shovel Knight dips into that nostalgia while being genuinely engaging and entertaining in its own right.
The game provides the perfect balance of fun, challenge, minor rpg elements (powering up mana vs. health), and level progression. The game includes fun achievements, which is something that I appreciate. Combine the excellent game play elements, a fantastic score, and lovingly created 8-bit art, and you come away with the total package here!

I Kickstarted this game, and my only regret is not chipping in more. Definitely well worth the 14.99 retail for those that purchase through Steam. I can’t wait to see what else Yacht Club Games come up with in the future. A highly enthusiastic 90/100 for Shovel Knight!

GRID Autosport Review and System Requirements

I had the best time racing vvith this simulator and the graphics are next generation!!! This is a must buy for all simulator junkies, but only on the PC. You must buy the best graphics card you can afford to see the level of realism. We are talking almost photo realistic here and that makes it, plus the physics engine, a hell a lot of fun!!! I cannot wait to have time to play with it again and I hope this will not interfere with my work !!!

Pulstar Review and System Requirements

Even for an indie game this is subpar. There is one level. That’s right, ONE level. Nothing ever changes except for the power-ups you can acquire. This might be a 7 or 8 if it was a mobile platform, but playing $4.99 for a PC game with such fundamental mechanics and only one level is more than steep. Not even co-op can make up for that. It has a lot of potential but seems rushed.

Verdict: 40/100
