3 Up, 3 Down – March 2018 Edition
With the end of March marks the end of Q1 of 2018. The first quarter had some solid games such as Monster Hunter: World, Shadow of the Colossus, and Dragon Ball FighterZ. March 2018 continued the trend with some solid games, but also some games that may have missed the mark. Without further ado, let’s get into the three best and three worst games of March 2018.
Far Cry 5
Far Cry 5 continues the trend of solid Ubisoft titles, making a big splash in March 2018. Despite being of a similar structure to past Far Cry titles, Far Cry 5 features a great story, zany characters, an enticing environment, and Cheeseburger the bear. In our review, we found that “if you’re itching for a hootin’ and hollerin’ good time with the good ol’ boys and gals of ‘Murica, look no farther than Far Cry 5.”
The sequel to the original Q.U.B.E., Q.U.B.E. 2 is a block moving puzzle game that is even more ambitious, challenging, and fun. Despite a primarily puzzle first title, the game’s storyline is ambitiously told and engaging. In our review, we noted that “Q.U.B.E. 2 may not be the most groundbreaking game you’ve ever played but it is one you are going to want to pick up.”
Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom
The follow-up title to 2013’s Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom brings back the series’ strong gameplay, art style, and storytelling. While the original’s familiars do not return, loveable characters, enjoyable combat, and phenomenal animation mark the game’s positives. In our review, we found that the title “is a treat and shouldn’t be missed out on, especially if you’re in the JRPG mood.”
