Ever Forward - Review In A Few


Ever Forward is an adventure puzzle game — it is the story of Maya. Maya is lost in a strange world somewhere between reality and imagination. She is alone to confront her despair on her journey of discovery, where she must unlock her memories and confront her fears to unravel the secrets of the world. Players will need to use their observational skills and intelligence to solve multiple puzzles to piece together the mystery of Maya's past and what dark secrets she has buried.

Now that's the official description out the way, what do I think about Maya and her Ever Forward adventure? I must admit I'm a little but stumped, while the game looks and feels great, the story was interesting, but was very "Insert your opinion here" type business, and while that works sometimes I feel it didn't here. That's not to say that the story was bad by any sense I was just expecting more. 

On the other hand, the graphics and animations are brilliant and I was very happy with how it all flowed and looked. The colours of the levels felt very "dreamlike" and I think this is what they were aiming for, not to mention it really sets that dreamlike atmosphere well. 

The puzzles themselves were very well, as you get more into the game they become a bit tedious and frustrating, but saying that they are well made, and they lean in with the environment very well. I will point out that I really loved the make your own savepoint feature, I thought this was a brilliant touch to the game, not to mention, not being able to run from enemies. Very dreamy. 

So would I buy this game? I think this is an interesting one as if you're not a puzzle game player, then I more than likely would give this a miss or grab it in a bundle, but if puzzles are your thing, then yes buy it!

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout - Review In A Few

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout - The Takeshi's Castle of games.

Fall Guys is a massive multiplayer party game with up to 60 players online in a free-for-all struggle through round after round of escalating chaos until one victor remains! 

That's the given description of the game from steam. While it's true, it doesn't cover the whole story. But here at GameDotObject we get right to the point, and let me do that. Fall Guys is out currently On Steam and PlayStation, there is nothing confirmed about the potential release on other consoles. Apart from a few Unity files that were leaked suggesting that it would have support for Switch, but in reality     Unity comes with this type of support out of the box. With that being said I'm pretty sure if I was a betting man I would put my money on Fall Guys coming to different platforms soon. 

So with that being said, is it fun? Yes it can be. While the game itself isn't particularly a break through in the sense of mechanics and gameplay, it does provide a few hours of fun and if you play with friends, even more so.

But. With that being said it also has a rather large problem too, not only is the game pretty boring after a few hours as by that time you've seen all there is in the game. But cheaters are a problem. Now recently Mediatonic have released an update where they include an better anti cheat than they had at launch. But it's still not the best.

Should you buy it? Yes, but only on sale. I think in my opinion that the sale price of £15.99 as a base is a bit too much. Granted it's a fun game and has some great skins for everyone but I just don't feel that it's completely worth the full £15.99, if it was maybe something around £9.99 I'd say yes, buy it now but currently no.

With that being said, season two is coming. So hopefully they will add a lot more content and some of the main issues are addressed. That's not to say it isn't fun, it just might get boring quick.
