This Is Not A Review: Connection Haunted

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: Connection Haunted developed by MrCiastku and published by No Gravity Games.

Hell Let Loose Preview

My first foray into first-person shooters with a heavy focus on strategy and mechanics began with the closed beta of Hell Let Loose, a World War II-era shooter developed by Black Matter and published by Team 17. Their project focuses more on the tactical and realistic aspects of firing a gun, more similar in scope to ARMA 3 and America’s Army than to something like Call of Duty.
