1. Dead Space 3
Oh gosh, this is straight action packed game that i dont remember much. I didnt finished it last time because of the save game glitch (during pirate day) so I was kinda skeptical about finishing this game without hiccup. Turn out, that I must finish whole side mission in order for the game to trigger the save file properly. Some people might said that DS3 killed the franchise because of it trying to focus on action set pieces with a lot of in game cut scenes. I would say that the dumbed down system killed it. Oh my gosh, I feel like that the game are not fun when i play it on hard difficulty. It is either too difficult because enemy appear from behind you, or simply too easy if the AI combination is too weak to kiting playstyle.
One of main reason is because they simplify all ammunition into just 1 clip type. Basically if your ammo run out, u are screwed. Next, you can only carry 2 weapons, so you really need to craft weapon for specific encounter. I enter mid-chapter without fast weapon, and i struggled because the game suddenly introduced horde skinny enemy that super fast and come in group. Weapon design also are limited with your crafting materials, making it only available / usable about 1/3 of playthrough in. By end of mid section, you pretty much will get maxed 2 weapons with all upgrades. However, u still will lack of materials to experiment with new weapon type (unless u want to pay money for DLC stuff).
On final note, I would say that I dont enjoy this game much. I will put at mediocre if I could, although the game could be much more fun to play in Coop, which I have no plan to. It is just kinda too boring without anything new.
Another recommendation : RE 4 pretty much, Lost Planet 3, not perfect but feel similar with icy alien planet.
Finally play this game although I installed it for 2 weeks already. Imagine a forest where you have flora and fauna that live in harmony. Then a giant alien robot came in to capture all creatures. So you as the hero, pretty much work together with other creatures in order to free those from the enemy. You will unlock new skill / ability ala metroidvania, which give some traverse ability across the forest. Judging for the map, it seem that it is not big as HLTB only say that you can finish the game within 5 hours.
Best part of the game is you have ability to sing! Which kinda a communication tool to talk / use certain ability with other creature (think like riding on bird to go certain high places). This game is more toward puzzle / action / adventure, so dont expect any fighting in the game, except trying to solved the issue with your current encounter. The game is superb with it lighting and mood, probably one of the surreal game I ever play with its striking colour palette.
Overall, this game is short fun adventure that you might want to give it a try. It seem like it will be nice game that you can 100% with ease as you will all your tools to find all collectibles from the get go.
Other recommendation : Toki tori 2, 2d "metroidvania" that you use simple ability to solve puzzle. This game remind me so much spore, but the genre is way too different.
