I found the way it delivered its story too obtu se
Look, I don’t want to make excuses, but it’s been a busy month and my printout is still missing, presumed recycled. As a result, I have not played any new games this month. Instead, here’s a couple of games I played last month, that I never wrote about because I wasn’t much of a fan.
The first, Horizon Chase Turbo, was recommended to me after I reviewed Outrun- alike Slipstream. It’s… fine. The world is colourful, and it’s a breezy enough way to spend 20 minutes, but the handling fails to capture the arcade pleasure of those early time-attack racers.
The second is Cultist Simulator. Our reviewer, Chris Livingston, was a fan, but I found the way it delivered its story too obtuse and hard to follow. I felt like I was spinning the wheels, trying to earn resources without ever making progress.
