GameFly Hunter: GAMEFLY SERVICES Bi-Annual

GAMES~(4/5): Most of the latest games come quickly. WEBSITE~(4/5): Site is still effective at getting you there. SHIPPING~(5/5): FREE shipping! Still effective packaging. CONSOLES~(5/5): Older consoles are available, but hidden. COMPUTER~(2/5): STEAM is far better than this. Have to admit it. SERVICE~(3/5): Chats and phones are more accessible now. PRICING~(3/5): Still a worthwhile deal, if I had reviews to do. MEDIA~(2/5): When will this company advertise, damnit?? FINAL~(7/10): If you play PC, go to Steam; see me there, friend me. If you have any console, even handhelds, this is the best bang for your bucks, even before retail. Kudos!

GameFly Hunter: Assassin's Creed 4 Wii U

"Right, then. All who wants to be a pirate, say 'aye'! Perfect! Congratulations, you're all pirates. Welcome to me humble crew."~ Capt. Jack Sparrow, Johnny Depp. Ahh, if ONLY it were that easy! Yes, it is time to review an Assassin's Creed game, and since I am feeling my independence, sowing my wild oats, as it were... what better title than one about PIRATES, those freedom-loving indomitable fighters of the open seas?! Oh, wait... didya know that the name Buccaneer comes from a French word for... being a pitmaster at a BBQ restaurant?? Yeah, look it up. So, if the captain was ELECTED, who was the cook on-ship?

GameFly Hunter BAIT: Wonderful 101 Wii U

STORY~(3/5): Little corny, rather simple. Less is more! Plays out like a film? GAMEPLAY~(5/5): Controls are almost-PERFECT! Lots of variety and functions. Interacting with background is wonderful. Strategy and GamePad are well-integrated. AMBIANCE~(4/5): Feels like a comic book in real-time. Barely able to see individuals. CHARACTERS~(4/5): Getting new heroes is quick and fulfilling. Original character designs, too. Aren't police and firemen and military and EMT already heroes?? OVERALL~(8/10): EXCELSIOR! Plan to buy this eventually; you should, too! Great fun.

GameFly Hunter: Ninja Gaiden 3 Wii U

I will be upfront with all of you; I beat the original Ninja Gaiden. Both of them, first edition. I have beaten Super Ghouls and Ghosts on the SNES, twice over. I know what hard games are like, and when they are done correctly, I love them for every learning curve. But now as a critic, I get to instruct all of you on what should NOT be done in game design, when 'difficult' ceases to be enjoyable, when the shit doesn't hit the fan, but explodes in your face. Welcome to the GameFly Hunter review for Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge for the Nintendo Wii U. This is the 'edge', all right... the edge into insanity. STORY~(2/5): This story is ridiculou

GameFly Hunter BAIT: The CAVE Wii U

STORY~(3/5): Nice premise, poor execution. Narrator provides whole story? GAMEPLAY~(2/5): No tutorial, usability for Wii U port. One long logic-chain puzzle? AMBIANCE~(4/5): Beautiful backdrops! Characters are well-designed. No Gamepad sound? CHARACTERS~(2/5): Variety without understanding equals confusion. Weak narration. OVERALL~(5/10): Keep it on STEAM. Double Fine made THIS? Disappointment.

GameFly Hunter: Injustice Wii U

Now, we all know that I'm not that good at fighting games, so when NetherRealm Studios at Midway decided to make MK vs DC, then also make a fighting game based ENTIRELY within the Justice League universe, I had my doubts about how good I would be, even in the Story mode. While I had experience in both offline and online play, I did have a few surprises come my way, detailed in this review! Let me show you what I mean with the GameFly Hunter review for Injustice: Gods Among Us for the Nintendo Wii U! Thank god Melvin's not playable...

STORY~(2/5): Good for a sequel. In media res? Too much lore, no exposition. GAMEPLAY~(4/5): GREAT puzzle dynamics. Multiple paths! Too much touch screen? Abilities slightly overly-mystical for immersion, unbelievable. AMBIANCE~(4/5): Very organic backgrounds, very interactive. Musak doesn't intrude on sound effects. HUD is disorganized and clumsy. CHARACTERS~(4/5): Trio has good chemistry. Believable AI for enemies. Narrator is dull. Nice VA. Relic has own character? OVERALL~(8/10): Would have liked to demo boss fight. Worthwhile title if affordable. Silly antics possible in startup!

GameFly Hunter: Game and Wario Wii U

While his rival seems to have fallen back into nostalgia, Wario has been evolved within the Nintendo faucet-fixers from merely a palette-swap into the King of minigames! It seems hard to believe, but this pudgy plumber with a bad attitude has been reformed, transforming himself from platformer to gamemaker, giving us title after title of little nuggets to enjoy on the run. While this was perfectly acceptable on handhelds or tolerable with the Wii-mote, does this train keep on chugging along the right track, or was this the last stop? Let's ride the rails with the GameFly Hunter review for Game & Wario on the Nintendo Wii U! And yes, I didn't

STORY~(1/5): Typical shooter storyline; almost none. GAMEPLAY~(4/5): Easy controls. Easy to beat levels. Just easy! AMBIANCE~(3/5): Techno-central visuals, little musak. Unique landscapes. CHARACTERS~(1/5): Nothing to speak of. Enemies are viral growths? OVERALL~(5/10): Really SHORT demo. Easy to play, though. Little too easy?

It means a lot to me that you like the story enough to mark it as one of your favorites. If you have any thoughts, I'd love to hear them.

Also, good luck with your game reviews. Unfortunately, our game interests appear to generally stand apart. Most of what I play are RPGs, of which there are only a few on your list.

Incidentally, I generally advise to do away with numerical reviews. They tend to be misleading.
Actually, I am writing up a review on a popular RPG, and have many of them lined up for review... just not here on DA, but on my Patreon. And I have found single-number reviews to be misleading ONLY in giving a singular numeric value to a complex set of experiences and setups that exist within gaming. This is why I not only have a set of specific standards and ethics, but also I separate different values and critique them individually. Therefore, when I arrive at the final overall total, there are specific reasons and explanations about WHY my score is what it is. I hope to see you as a patron.
