Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception | Review

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Naughty Dog’s final Uncharted game on the PS3, released in 2011 to critical fanfare. Contrary to this belief, some fans disliked this third game, and they believed that it could not compete with Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. This game has attained a generally more negative reputation than its predecessor in recent years, but it is still a fine game, in my point of view.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves | Review

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is a great example of how to make a sequel bigger and better. Released in 2009, this second Naughty Dog production on PlayStation 3 once again stars Nathan Drake, but the stakes are raised, and the gameplay has been smoothed out tenfold since the original. This is probably the best Uncharted game Naughty Dog will ever produce.

Super Mario 64 launched as the major launch game to accompany the release of Nintendo’s then-new flagship console, the Nintendo 64. For a game released in 1996, it was quite impressive technically, but I replayed it to know if it still holds up after twenty years. I would say that it holds up fantastically, and is nearly as much of a marvel now as it was two decades ago.

Gunman Clive | Review

Gunman Clive is a platformer that is more tactical than action based, but it still has some traces of the frenetic gameplay of its NES ancestors.  In execution, it is quite simple, but it’s almost deceivingly simple while also keeping the challenge that is associated with games in this vein, albeit toned down slightly.

Super Mario Maker | Review

I have been really excited for Super Mario Maker since the Nintendo World Championships took place a few months ago. That event single-handedly raised my expectations for the game, as it showed the possibilities that it could open up. Did it live up to those expectations?
