This was one of my favourite topics on the old Hitmanforum that doesn’t seem to have been recreated here yet.
It’s exactly what it says on the tin - tell us what videogame(s) you’re playing at the moment, a little bit about them, and whether or not you’d recommend them to the rest of us!
I’ll start off:
Disney’s Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse
This is a 2013 remake of a Sega Genesis/Megadrive classic. The evil witch Mizrabel has kidnapped Minnie, and it’s up to Mickey to save her. I’d recommend this to anyone looking for some classic, 2D platforming fun. It’s a blast to play, and the visuals, music and presentation are charming. The developers have taken influence from some of the best PS1 era platformers to put a new spin on the classic levels - there’s more than a little Crash Bandicoot-style gameplay complimenting the traditional levels.
6 years late to the party, I just started playing the original Dead Space last night, following a recommendation from a friend. I haven’t even finished the first chapter yet, but I’m already in love with it. I’ve recently been feeling tempted to download the HD remaster of Resident Evil 4, but I’m glad I downloaded this instead as it’s essentially RE4 in space. The visuals and presentation are fantastic - it really does look incredible, and I don’t even need to qualify that by adding ‘for a 6-year old game’. In terms of gameplay, it’s got everything that made RE4 great - over-the-shoulder aiming and shooting, claustrophobic environments, intimidating enemies and the added novelty of having to sever enemy limbs in order to kill them. Highly recommended.
