One of the boss enemies patrols most areas. If they spot you, they will chase you and try to kill you. It's hard to tell where they'll be, because it's very easy to lose track of them. This causes you to shudder every time you open a door or turn a corner. It's even worse when they sneak up on you and start cackling maniacally. See More
The regular enemies are black goo people with claws. They have hardly any variation and even the crawling variants aren't very scary. It's really disappointing the developers didn't think to use any alligators (or other swamp creatures), with the game being set near a swamp. See More
Even though the boss fights are packed with action, they also make you feel a bone-chilling helplessness. For example, in one of the fights you're trapped in the slaughterhouse. The door's locked and the boss is slowly walking towards you. One wrong move and you'll be decapitated by a chainsaw. It's extremely nerve-wracking to avoid it until you're able to take the boss down. See More
It's a lot of fun to uncover why the Baker family went mad and what happened to your missing girlfriend. The various memos, diary entries, and video tapes explain the events leading up to this. It should be enjoyable for both horror fans and other players as well. See More
Thumper looks stunning. The futuristic vibe with the flashing blues, purples, and reds everywhere. The road your vehicle travels on jets through a seemingly endless void that changes depending on the stage, such as showing off bosses that appear as large, abstract enemies looming overhead. The trippy visuals are pretty neat, making the game stand out more along with its unique gameplay. See More
Virtual Reality makes Thumper much more fun and intense. Along with the feeling of the controls putting you in the seat of the vehicle, you're actually put into the game itself, surrounded by the visuals. The lights, the music, and the rumbles all feel more up-close-and-personal, as if you're part of the environment itself. Thumper is compatible with VR on both PlayStation 4 and PC, so anyone with a headset for either platform will be able to try it out for themselves. See More
Thumper can be too hard if you've never played a rhythm game before. Because everything moves at such high speeds right from the start, you may miss a lot of the button inputs and get discouraged. Even for experienced players, it takes some practice before getting used to the flow of gameplay. See More
Other than visual cues, the visceral feedback you get from timing your button presses just right helps keep you on-beat. Getting that timing down rewards you with an addicting rumble, helping you feel the rhythm in your hands. With your vehicle moving at such crazy speeds, pressing the right buttons on-beat simulates the feeling that you're really in the driver's seat, listening to the music playing at full volume all around you. Pressing the buttons correctly with feedback helps keep you glued to the game, motivating you to go after higher and higher scores. See More
Thumper is a rhythm game mixed with fast-paced action, setting itself apart from other titles in the genre. Your "character" is a vehicle that runs on rails in a track, with certain speedbump-like indicators on the road that show up in sequence. You have to press the button prompts in time with your vehicle driving over the indicators, ideally to the correct rhythm to the beat to rack up points. It can be tough going at full speed and catching all of the button prompts while staying in-sync with the song, but the payoff is incredibly satisfying. See More
The Inpatient is a prequel to Until Dawn, and as such, it utilizes the same type of "Butterfly Effect" story system. While roaming the halls of the Blackwood Sanatorium, there are several major events in which the player must make a choice. Depending on which choice is made, the story will change and this results in certain characters living or dying. This branching story adds a degree of replayability since the game features multiple endings and outcomes for most of the various characters. It must be played through several times to see everything it has to offer. See More
If you're controlling the game with the Playstation Move controller, it acts as a flashlight which can be used to light up dark hallways and pan your light around rooms during exploration. It gives the sensation of holding a real flashlight in your hands as you search the many darkened areas within the game world. See More
The game utilizes 3D binaural audio to great effect and goes to great length to make the player feel like they are in the game world. Voices, growls, and screams sound like they are coming from behind you when they are, in fact, behind you. Sound effects appear on your left or right depending on where you're standing in relation to the noise. Cell doors creak and screams can be heard in the distance. Additionally, during the dialogue parts of the game, you can choose the dialogue options by using your voice to speak the lines which really helps to draw the player into the role. See More
The Inpatient utilizes the fact that it's a VR game to it's advantage. In most horror games, you can simply cover your eyes and ears during moments of pure terror. However, this experience is delivered via VR which means you're locked into the action at all times and can't look away. There are definitely jump scares, but a majority of the horror and dread is the environment itself. Creaks, growls, and moans wail through the sanitarium. Blood stains abound. Corpses litter the floor, unseen hands smash furniture, and skittering noises come from behind you. There's more than a few chills to be had when something scratches at the door next to you or you're walking down a very dimly lit hallway. When talking to other characters, it feels like you're standing right next to them and you can even interact using your own voice. See More
The simplicity of the graphics belies how crisp and clean they are. There's no invisible walls you'll have to deal with, and nothing like random pebbles you'll collide with and be unable to move. You won't get frustrated dealing with the little things like that that drive you crazy in other games. See More
Battlezone is a first-person shooter, one where you're always on the attack. There's always some enemy tank out there to get you, and it's your job to bring it down. The fast-paced nature of the game makes it really fun to play, and will keep you from getting bored too easily. See More
Farpoint is a FPS in a league of its own, due in large part to it's optional peripheral, the PS Aim Controller. The PS Aim Controller is a gun-type controller, only vaguely shaped like any actual type of firearm. Within the game, holding the controller makes you feel as though you are actually holding an alien-killing firearm. Shooting your weapon in game provides accurate feedback in game, and in reality -- you FEEL your weapon firing in your hands. Hold your PS Aim Controller up in reality, and your virtual counterpart will do the same -- the game even provides visual cues when your weapon is endanger of overheating. The game's focus on truly utilizing the PS Aim Controller to its fullest potential is what sets this game apart from other FPS games on the market. See More
The tracking on the PS Aim Controller is often difficult to get situated properly. Poor tracking on the gun can break the feeling of immersion that makes this game so appealing. That being said, when it is set up correctly, it feels excellent. See More
Throughout the game you will encounter holographic fragments -- using your PS Aim controller, you must scan these fragments from top to bottom. After fully scanning the fragments, a recreation of the events, pertaining to the subject of each hologram fragment, plays out before your eyes. See More
