This Is Not A Review – Herald: An Interactive Period Drama

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Herald: An Interactive Period Drama, developed and published by Wispfire.


Impact Winter Review

If The Cold Doesn’t Get You…

HIGH Figuring out my rifle and executing that damn wolf.

LOW Having to restart after three in-game days because the food system wasn’t well-explained.

WTF Dear Main Character: Please put on pants. It’s freezing out there.


Cryptark Review

Rogues… In… Spaaaaaaaace….

 

HIGH Wiping the Cryptark out by firing my super-weapon over and over…

LOW …after having the game crash the first time I tried to do that.

WTF Enemies can fly through walls now? That seems fair.


The Golf Club 2 Review

A Diamond In Some Deep Rough

HIGH A limitless amount of user-generated content, a very reasonable price point.

LOW Extremely steep learning curve for those accustomed to EA’s golf titles.

WTF Unforgivable graphical stutter on backswings that turns drives into crashes.
