Video Game Review: Mad Max

Details: Played through the game for about thirty-three hours. More information can be found at https://avalanchestudios.com/games/mad-max

Score: 7/10

Mad Max is about as formulaic an open world game as any other. It doesn’t innovate within the genre at all and just regurgitates what already exists. With that said, it does a good job using this genre as a vehicle for a Mad Max story and a world that successfully emulates the feeling you’d get from a Mad Max movie.

Video Game Review: Terraria: Journey’s End

Details: This is a review for the latest update or expansion, which is only available for PC at the moment. I wrote a review for this game previously which can be found at https://elliotsview.wordpress.com/2017/04/05/video-game-review-terraria/

Score: 7/10

Journey’s End is the free, final update to Terraria (they’ve said this before for prior updates), a game I reviewed before. This new update adds thousands of changes and additions to the game, making it more of an expansion rather than an update. This is mostly going to cover the changes I ran into, not review the whole game.

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: Judgment of Atlantis

Details: Spent about seven hours playing through it. More information can be found at https://assassinscreed.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/home

Score: 6/10

For the most part, this DLC is lackluster. However, I cannot deny that it’s pretty to look at. The art department knocked it out of the park with Judgment of Atlantis. It’s the writers and scenario makers that sucked with this one.

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation Remastered

Details: Played about five hours before giving up. Came bundled together with Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Season Pass. Official site is https://www.ubisoft.com/en-us/game/assassins-creed-3-remastered/

Score: 5.6/10

I really wanted to like this game. I forced myself to play through it until I just couldn’t take it anymore. Assassin’s Creed Liberation Remastered may have better textures, but it pains the eyes and mind with it’s lackluster world and boring gameplay.

Video Game Review: Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare

Details: Originally released in 2010. Spent about eight hours playing through it. Official site is http://www.rockstargames.com/reddeadredemption/dlc/undead

Score: 6.5/10

Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare is a stand alone expansion to Red Dead Redemption. That means you don’t need to buy the base game in order to play this. If you loved the base game, then you should play this. Otherwise, you won’t miss anything by skipping this expansion.
