Weakless is a new adventure puzzle game developed by ‘Punk Nation‘ and ‘Cubeish Games‘ but published by ‘Punk Nation’ only. Weakless is said to be coming out the 29th of November 2019 on the Xbox One and PC. It hasn’t been announced if Weakless is going to be on the Nintendo Switch and PS4 yet. Let’s take a look.
Basically in Weakless players control two characters. Their kind is called weavelings. Their names seem to be ‘Deaf’ and ‘Blind’. What charming names right? Why are they called that? This is because Deaf is literally deaf and Blind is literally blind. This is also the whole point of the game. Players must have these characters work together to progress through this world. This world has what’s being described as challenging puzzles. Both characters are needed for success.
Now in Weakless you might be wondering why not just have the one who can see lead the other one around as seeing is better than hearing. Well both of Deaf and Blind have more than learnt how to deal with their disabilities. They have developed some extraordinary abilities. Blind is the older and way more calm of the two and is the one to look after Deaf. You can only control one character at a time which also means you can use their senses one at a time. So knowing when to use who and what they can do is key for Weakless.
So what’s going on in Weakless? What’s Deaf and Blind out here doing? Basically they want to protect their village and off course the weaveling people. This can be done by bringing back the flow of Resin, which is life energy for all living creatures in the Weakless world. Without the flow of Resin the world is in danger from the advancing rot.
Now Weakless takes place in a very different world indeed. This world is full of different locations and areas. So make sure to take a moment to observe the surroundings. Players can expect natural basins, caves, ruins and more. A variety of locations is pretty much always a win in video games.
We checked out some Weakless gameplay and it’s quite interesting, especially with the puzzles. Blind has exceptional hearing while Deaf can bring light wherever he goes. They truly have to work together. The puzzles and the environment in multiple ways do remind us of Pikmin. There’s a number of secrets in the world of Weakless. Deaf even has a sketch book where players can check out and see what Deaf thinks about the whole situation.
Overall Weakless seems like another adventure with some puzzle elements. Sort of like Abe and Munch from Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee where you must control both characters, think things through and use their skills. Just seems like a good game but we definitely like how different Weakless is. The developers ‘Punk Notion’ and ‘Cubeish Games’ have done a good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to see what Weakless accomplishes. Now Weakless may be about teamwork but even working together won’t help you beat… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Death’s Gambit is a action role playing game developed by ‘White Rabbit‘ and published by ‘Adult Swim Games‘. Death’s Gambit is said to be coming out on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch 2019. Is already out on PS4 and PC but we never heard about it while it was on these two. This game is said to be challening. Let’s take a look.
In the world of Death’s Gambit, players control Death’s right hand guy. You are the agent of Death. Sounds cool? Maybe, maybe not. After all what reward does a faithful servant of Death gets? Think about it. In this place called Siradon there is a big secret, a way to gain immortality. Now off course such a secret and mysterious place won’t be left uninhabited or unguarded. The player must visit these guys.
There are knights, beats, monsters and even more horrors. Don’t be surprised, after all this place has been described as an alien medieval planet. The battles are the challenging part. The combat requires precise actions and decisions. Think of it like Dark Souls. If you don’t time your dodges, blocks and attacks you can suffer and die real quick.
Now concerning the weapons, each one has their own set of abilities. So combine your weapon abilities with different equipment to find the style that works for you. There are many areas for you to explore. Death’s Gambit is an expansive world. There’s the obsidian vale, sanguine city, witch woods all containing some interesting characters who have stories of their own.
There are seven different classes for you to play in Death’s Gambit, multiple talents from the skill tree. You can customise your character with swords, scythes, halberds, bows and more. Spells and all.
There’s game modes like new game plus and heroic mode which is basically a tougher boss fight mode. There are side areas and multiple things for players to do. Developers claim Death’s Gambit is non-linear.
We checked out some Death’s Gambit gameplay and it’s what we thought it would be. From when we knew it was 2D we knew what to expect. There are some real dangerous bosses who will give quite the fight. There are huge monsters who will always look down on you while others are famous beings, practically legends. Each boss has their own trick for players to figure out and they force you to mix up what you do.
Overall Death’s Gambit seems like another 2D difficult action game where a number of players will most likely rage. The graphics are alright and the sounds are alright too. Again this is a game for specific gamers. Not everyone is going to be on this. We need to see something special to get X35 Earthwalker into this. The developers have done an alright job with this game. Now Death’s Gambit might have mysterious dangerous lands but what’s more dangerous is… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Munchkin: Quacked Quest is a new action role playing game developed and published by ‘Asmodee Digital‘. Munchkin: Quacked Quest is said to be coming out the 19th of November 2019 on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC. Now we have never heard of this game. So let’s take a look.
In the world of Munchkin: Quacked Quest, everything is silly and meant to be a joke. Even their websites keep mentioning laughing. There isn’t a story as far as we know. It just seems to be all multiplayer chaotic fun action. You and the other players will be facing numerous enemies and trying to grab… ducks? Wait… ducks? Yes, ducks.
Yes the whole Munchkin: Quacked Quest seems to be about ducks. Players must capture ducks and this is what players betray each other for… ducks. Players must capture ducks. It’s all about the ducks.
The dungeons are randomly generated so expect different things each time. Also expect the challenges to not be normal either. They are said to be different and crazy.
Now there is character customisation. There are four races to choose from and there’s four classes to choose from too. You can mix and match though so you could create an orc wizard, dwarf priest and much more.
A big theme in Munchkin: Quacked Quest is betrayal. Yes you are working together with others but at the end of the day it’s all about the ducks. Every player is out for the ducks but you need to make sure it’s you who gets them so remove and take out whoever stands in your way. This means you can throw your friends into pits, no regrets.
There’s treasures that you need to get to first, there are legendary weapons that will give you the definite advantage. One legendary weapon is called the “Rat-on-a-Stick”. No comment. So make sure to smash all the objects in the room in a hopes to find loot.
We checked out some Munchkin: Quacked Quest gameplay and it’s sort of what we expected but slower than we thought. The gameplay is silly, the universe is sort of wacky. Nothing special, nothing stands out but at the end of the day it’s another multiplayer game. It’s a local multiplayer game with big bosses like a dragon. So bring your friends and ruin some friendships.
Overall Munchkin: Quacked Quest just seems like an alright game for gamers who want something fun and silly. Nothing serious, nothing super competitive but just to have a few laughs. The developers ‘Asmodee Digital’ have done an alright job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to hear what Munchkin: Quacked Quest gets up to in the future. Now Munchkin: Quacked Quest may be about the ducks but what’s way bigger is… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King are two new, well actually old, action adventure games being sold as one, developed by Digital Eclipse and published by Nighthawk Interactive and Disney Games. Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King is said to be coming out the 29th of October 2019 on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC. These games certainly have some gamers waiting for them. Let’s take a look.
Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King are off course truly old games which back in the old days like 1993. like a good number of old games on the Sega, they had some difficulty to them. Now X35 Earthwalker, the one true Earthwalker, the legendary soldier himself has played both of these games in the past. Not only has he played it, he has beaten them both and remembers them clearly. Right now we can let you know that these two games are very good and a lot of fun but now it’s back and off course there has been a few changes.
First of all you can play different versions of both Alladdin and The Lion King. So jump into them and see the differences for yourself. There is off course the final cut the official version that’s the main thing for players to play, which has a refined camera, off course bugs got fixed and even difficulty adjustment. Like with any old game brought to the modern times there are improved visuals with 1080P and HD. Expect improvements concerning sound and music too.
There’s also a save feature in Aladdin and The Lion King. So now players can quickly save their game whenever and wherever they want which is for complete babies. Back in our day we had to beat the whole thing in one day. No saving for us. There’s also the interactive game viewer which basically let’s players watch full game playthroughs and you can fast forward and jump in and take over any time. As in you can take over and start playing at any point.
So players can technically control time through the interactive game viewer but there’s also a in-game rewind feature that let’s players instantly rewind any part of the game in real time. There’s a whole lot you can do with a feature like this. There is off course a section where you can view the making of the games, developer content, numerous galleries, concept images and more.
We checked out some gameplay, not that we need to and it looks just like the past. It doesn’t look that much improved at all but maybe we will see the difference if we play it. Things do seem a little smoother and more detailed but again not by much. We recognise the levels and the new features do make a difference in these games. It’s basically Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King just brought from the past.
Overall Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King is basically the same. A good game as we remember them. You can also repeat and shuffle the songs from the games for your own enjoyment. The developers ‘Digital Eclipse’ have done a alright job with these games. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to see what else is happening with Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King. Now Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King may have been brought back but what doesn’t need to be brought back is… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD is a new action remake of Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, developed and published by Sega. Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD is said to be coming out October 29th 2019 on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PS4. The monkeys are back. Let’s take a look.
Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD is definitely a game that will get the attention X35 Earthwalker as he has some history with Super Monkey Ball. All the way back to the first Super Monkey Ball game on the Nintendo Gamecube. That game was awesome. Experiencing it for the first, the characters and the fact that there wasn’t another game like it at the time, that we know off. Well in case you didn’t know Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD is a remake of Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz.
So yes expect Aiai, Gongon, Meemee and Baby as that’s the original crew. There’s also Yanyan and Doctor. We honestly don’t like Doctor as he looks stupid and weird but hey, it’s a character right. The story is basically the typical one that the famous monkeys have many awesome bananas but they get stolen and this time the thief is not doctor badboon but a alien space pirate king called… Captain Crabuchin. Who is he? We don’t know but he’s clearly the bad guy. Remember this rule, “anyone who steals bananas is a bad guy”.
There’s over 100 stages which means that there’s already a big challenge. From past experience we know that the levels heavily vary in difficulty. There are 10 party games that have been called the “Fan-favourite”. We liked monkey shot, monkey billiard, monkey target, monkey bowling, monkey fight and monkey golf from Super Monkey Ball 2. Great family games that can get competitive but good fun. Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD also has Time Attack for you speedsters. There’s also a endurance run called Decathlon which has been described as “grueling”.
We checked out some Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD gameplay and it’s what we expected. It’s Monkey Ball. You roll around in a ball to get through levels. Avoid falling off, dodge bouncers and get to the goal. The mini games are cool too. We do like that you have the ability to jump which changes things for sure. There’s bosses and they look silly and not dangerous at all but remember kids play this game too. This does look great from the music to the level designs. Psssst, come closer. Lean in. Rumour has it that even a certain blue hedgehog has been spotted in that monkey filled world. Some say it’s Sonic the hedgehog. As if.
Overall, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD seems like a great game. We’ve seen a bit of the level designs and it does give some hope. What was very good about Super Monkey Balls 2 was the really creative level designs. Some levels had holes, poles, platforms, bouncy rings and more, creating a real obstacle course. Those were real cool. We hope Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz has creative design too. The developers ‘Sega’ have done a good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will keep an eye out for this. Now Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD may have gotten remastered but one things that doesn’t need remastering is… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Draw a Stickman: Epic 2 is a action adventure game developed and published by ‘Hitcents‘. Draw a Stickman: Epic 2 is said to be coming out on Xbox One the 9th of October 2019. Draw a Stickman: Epic 2 has been released before on the Nintendo Switch and PC but we never heard about that. Let’s take a look.
Draw a Stickman: Epic 2 is clearer a video game that revolves around drawing. This would mean that creativity is a part of it all. So players must create their own stickman or character and that will be the character in the game. Think about it, you can draw and make whatever you want. Your character enters a magical storybook which is off course, being magical, is full of mysterious, fictional stuff.
The story this time in Draw a Stickman: Epic 2 is that you are on a dangerous journey and use your creativity to make ways to rescue the different drawings. Yes, we are rescuing drawings. Primarily though you are actually trying to save your ally.
What kind of adventure would it be if there are no enemies or monsters? Face off against frogs, goblins and even dragon but it gets better. They are frogs that use their tongues, goblins with anger issues and dragons that breathe fire. There’s also huge bosses who are more than happy to take you out. There are ink rats who liking biting people who come close but dislikes stickmen with swords. King Dragorth is the undead dragon king. He likes Lazy Sundays but dislikes artificial flavouring. There’s more enemies out there with their own behavior, likes and dislikes. Get to know them for yourself.
There are secrets to unlock, drawings to collect and multiple ways to handle things which you can explore through an assortment of drawing pencils and other tools to make your creativity come to life. Now off course Draw a stickman: Epic 2 has to be superior to Draw a stickman 1. There’s more colours to choose from as the colour palette is now larger. Pencil sizes have more variety and whole new features like the ability to send your drawings to friends.
We checked out some Draw a stickman: Epic 2 gameplay and it’s pretty much what we thought it would be. Draw items, draw structures, create bridges and face enemies. Looks simple, a good amount of interactions and just fun. It’s definietly not for everyone but the creativity and what’s happening around is cool. We also like the silliness of the enemies.
Overall Draw a stickman: Epic 2 seems like a simple fun game that has room for creativity. Seems alright. Just go on an adventure and keep your pencils nearby. The graphics are good for a drawing based game. The developers ‘Hitcents’ have done a good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to hear what Draw a stickman: Epic 2 accomplishes amongst gamers. Now Draw a stickman: Epic 2 may be creative but it’s nowhere as creative as… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is a new action adventure game developed by Saber Interactive and published by ‘Mad Dog‘. Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is said to be coming out the 4th of October 2019 on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC. Now many people like to bust ghosts but these guys are back. Is this a good game though. Let’s take a look.
Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is something that only a certain group of fans have been looking forward too. We at X35 Earthwalker, didn’t even know that this game was even being developed. First thing we should mention is that this Ghostbusters game according to the developers has “a unique storyline”. So this should mean that it’s not following the movies but doing it’s own thing. We agree with that decision as it gives fans something new and exciting to look forward to. So prepare yourselves.
The Ghostbusters are voiced by the original actors. So expect to hear Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson and Dan Aykroyd once again. Remember when we said that the story will be unique and original well the writers of the original films: Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis are behind this story. Now off course players control the Ghostbusters and you’ll be battling and facing many ghosts through the famous and loved streets of New York.
Now if you know anything about Ghostbusters then its’s most likely that you hunt and chase ghosts. You hear about ghost activities, make your way to the location and face them. Firing beams from their proton packs to grab and bring them in position to be captured. In Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered you have upgradeable weapons and the environments you are in are “widely destructible”. This makes us wonder if we can destroy New York one building at a time like we can in Earth Defense Force 2025.
We checked out some Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered gameplay and it does look cool. It definitely looks more like an adventure now and something new. The graphics are good and the voices does sound like the original actors but slightly different since they’ve gotten older. We see many different ghosts and they look dangerous. There’s even boss battles where you face big ghosts. We are liking what we see so far. We are also liking the different environments and how some look sort off… ghostly… come one we know you smiled there.
Overall Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered looks like a really cool game. We get to have a very good Ghostbusters game. It’s been a while. We only remember two good Ghostbusters games. The are most happy with the fact that it’s an adventure and something completely new. This is an opportunity. Multiplayer would be good for this game though. The developers ‘Saber Interactive’ have done an excellent job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker look forward to seeing Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered come out. Now Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered may include ghostbusting but one thing you can’t bust is… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Contra: Rogue Corps is the new twin stick third-person action game developed and published by ‘Konami‘. Contra: Rogue Corps is said to be coming out the 24th of September on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC. Contra is a famous game that many enjoyed in the past. It’s back but with some changed. Let’s take a look.
Now the action that you see in Contra: Rogue Corps takes place several years after the alien wars. Contra: Rogue Corps is all about a military… well former military group who makes their living and survival through being bounty hunters and finding treasure. They are located in what’s called the ‘damned city’. Now in a place like this survival ain’t an easy thing.
You need fast reactions confirmed for Contra: Rogue Corps. If you take 12 years to turn around or your one of those adults who still can’t tell their left from their right then you’ll be dead. Now since this is Contra you already know it’s all about many weapons, funky ways of firing and bullets everywhere. Enemies are in abundance and they don’t stop coming.
There is online multiplayer in Contra: Rogue Corps so bring in your friends and mow down all your enemies. Kill everything you see with the different characters. There’s Headcase who can turn his hand into a giant drill, Cultured who looks like a alien with cybernetic augmentation. Killer who fused with an alien and now destroys without mercy. Cuddly who was a scientist but now a bear with guns. Don’t forget the ace pilot… Life-line from Apex Legends. Just joking but seriously Aero Pilot looks like a young Life-Line, before she joined the Apex Games.
Some people complain that Contra: Rogue Corps isn’t like the original Contra. The thing is people need to stop complaining. How about no Contra game at all. It’s still all about running, firing, destruction and numerous bullets. You can even jump on a missile and drive it yourself into a group of enemies and destroy everything. It doesn’t have to be a 2D game with the same type of enemies. There are different areas and fights going on in the Contra world. Things are different in different parts of the world. So yes, Contra is back, sort of but it’s still a contra game, get over it. There is some 2D action moments as well. Games need to change and try out new things to see what works.
We checked out some Contra: Rogue Corps gameplay and it’s basically what we expected from a Contra game. It’s crazy, over the top and there’s giant bosses too. Aliens are always crazy anyway. Just seems like simple fun, nothing deep or serious. Just blasting enemies for pleasure and fun. We aren’t a big fan of the graphics though. That needs to be improved. Other from that we think things look fine for now but we do need more information concerning the game.
Overall. Contra: Rogue Corps seems like a good game. It’s good for what it’s trying to do. We hope there is good gameplay depth to it and not just run around blasting stuff. The developers ‘Konami’ did a good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker don’t see a problem with it. Now Contra: Rogue Corps may have made some changed but one thing that doesn’t need changes is… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Decay of Logos is a new action role playing game developed by ‘Amplify Creations‘ and published by ‘Rising Star Games‘. Decay of Logos is said to be coming out the 27th of August on PlayStation 4, 29th for Nintendo Switch and 30th for Xbox One and PC. Decay of Logos is looking like a real adventure, a serious game. Let’s take a look.
Players control a lady named Ada. Ada is on a journey… of revenge. Her village got attacked and destroyed. You only have faint remembrance of the banners of the attackers but you need more information. You were when up by a mystical Elk. Ada feels an overwhelming sense of calm and safety. There was no reasonable explanation for it, but Ada somehow felt connected to the creature. So the whole game takes place in a very fantasy styled world. Expect fictional stuff everywhere and lots of imagination. You are in a ancient kingdom. The ruler is a king who is a big fan of wars and military affairs. We do know that the king was that good of a father and showed little affection for his sons.
Things get worse for him as his wife the queen died during childbirth. Now this child is his only daughter. He pays attention to her and sees to only care about protecting her. So off course the sons now bigger are becoming more distant from their dad. You can see where this is going. Eventually the family divides. The sons all hate their sister, they themselves separated from each other with each prince controlling their own part of the kingdom. All have a huge thirst for power and heavily influenced the parts they rule, “each territory reflecting their particular idiosyncrasies.”
We like the story so far of Decay of logos. It’s got a lore and some deep situations going on. It believably explains the world and why the kingdom is the way it is now. You can understand the sons and why they hate their sister, even though they are wrong to hate her. It’s the dads fault in this case. The player starts in Laetus grove. Players will also quickly learn that the world in Decay of Logos is not an ordinary world. You will see all kinds of beings: mythical creatures, wizards, ancient species and even knights.
Now remember that Decay of Logos is an action role playing game. Decay of Logos shows a lot of emphasis on exploration, inventory management and off course tactical combat. The elk is also a big part of the gameplay as it’s needed for combat, puzzle interaction and definitely exploration. Your greatest ally. We’ve played enough video game to know when somethings up. Clearly this elk isn’t just an elk and it’s probably going to be someone from her village and it being an elk is a result from the attack on the village. Either the person died and is now an elk spirit or they became an elk through mystical means or whatever. This was sort of similar in terms of the game Never Alone with the fox being a boy all this time… oh what… we are suppose to say something?… that’s right… spoiler alert.
Now throughout this world there are some friendly NPC’s which are said to be a good source of tips, game lore and even some items so make sure to check them out and socialise. Now remember that this whole game is filled with monsters, mythical creatures, wizards and even ancient species. So you will face many dangers and different foes. The combat is confirmed to be difficult… but also worth it. Players must take into account that the type of enemy you are facing and your location. Those are factors.
Decay of Logos allows you to fight back. Your character Ada has got some mobility to her name and a good fighter. She jump, parry (learn this), roll, sprint, backstep and slide. So use this stuff. It will save your life. Players can have different long and short range weapons. There’s more. There’s defence equipment too like shields. Elemental effects are here too so take this into account when facing certain enemies. Ada can also perform powerful combos so make sure your timing is right.
Now to make the game more realistic, and force players to pay more attention, there’s also stamina. Your actions requires stamina. Evading and counter attacking requires stamina so don’t run out. Decay of Logos is also quite a magical world as Ada is able to also use magic but that’s something you’ll discover as you progress through the game. So combat mobility, stamina, elemental effects, magic and powerful combos.
There’s more though and we do like this feature. When you get hit by enemies, your stats decrease making you weaker until you find and use a camp and rest. When you die you will wake up from a nightmare at the last shrine or camp used. Since you wake up some enemies will respawn and your stats will be reduced temporarily.
Remember that Decay of Logos is also as role playing game (RPG). There is a level up system. Your stats grow as you interact and activate mechanism, off course kill enemies and even finding chests, we mean secret ones will boost you up. Don’t forget that getting hurt reduces your stats temporarily. Lastly know that Camps and Shrines aren’t the same thing. Shrines are basically checkpoints while Camps can be used to save the game and sleep to recover which has it’s risks as you can get ambushed during your sleep.
We checked out some Decay of Logos gameplay and it does looks cool so far. We like the design style. We like that you have to gain the elk’s trust through protecting it and feeding it. There are secrets in the lands, your interactions with some NPC’s may effect your game later on, it’s pretty much an open world and that there’s a good variety of enemies so far. The graphics are good and the environments are cool too with the variety. So far Decay of logos is doing some stuff right.
Overall Decay of Logos seems like a very good game. It’s doing it’s own thing and not a Zelda: Breath of the Wildclone as some internet people have said. The developers ‘Amplify Creations’ have done a good job with this game so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to keep an eye out for this game. Now Decay of Logos may be a fantasy world but one more awesome world that’s completely real is… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Lord of the Rings: Adventure card game is a new card strategy game developed by ‘Fantasy Flight Interactive‘ and published by ‘Asmodee Digital‘. It is said that Lord of the Rings: Adventure card game is coming out the 8th of August 2019 on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC. There was already an PC early access but we don’t care. Let’s take a look.
Lord of the Rings: Adventure card game is set off course in the world of Lord of the Rings. This game is straight forward and not much to explain except the details. It’s a hard strategy game so gamers should know what to expect. Collect cards, hopefully some powerful ones and build a deck. Use that deck to battle destroy your enemies and progress through the world.
So basically the dark forces of Sauron are here and causing all kinds of trouble. Darkness and their evil is spreading. Off course heroes are needed. Players will also control and lead three heroes who are off course who are famous and the Lord of the Ring fans should know. Make your way through the campaigns but that won’t be easy. Expect Spiders, Orcs, Battle Uruks and much more. If you know the Lord of Rings universe then you should know what enemies and monsters to expect.
Now from what we know, there’s quite a lot of strategy to this game. There’s off course lots of abilities and hero powers but there’s also your heroes will power, a fate pool, sphere of influence and more. All these must be taken into account when developing strategies and coming up with different ways to take down your enemies. So this isn’t straight forward simple steam roll gameplay. The situation and enemies must be taken into account, including the circumstances.
We checked out some gameplay and it’s mainly what we though it would be. We like that features of the game and how the cards work is explained well. The arrows could have been better at pointing to things though. Remember that each hero has one o four spheres of influence: spirit, tactics, leadership and lore. They allow specific reinforcement cards in-game. Lord of the Rings: Adventure card game is constantly being compared to Hearthstone with similar style in design and combat but that isn’t an issue for us here and as many games have similar styles but off course different games. Lord of the Rings: Adventure card game is looking like a real story so far.
Overall, Lord of the Rings: Adventure card game is looking good so far. The graphics are good for what it’s about. The sounds and voices are very good. Again, instructions are gone well and this game does become straight forward to play. Heroes and units can be equipped and strengthened. The variety of enemies is big enough from what we can see. We just hope they get more creative and add more. The story gives the impression that you’re on a real adventure. The developers ‘Fantasy Flight Interactive’ have done a very good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will keep an ear open for Lord of the Rings: Adventure card game and see what it’s got. Now Lord of the Rings: Adventure card game may have a big adventure but nothings bigger than the ‘Earth Walk!’
