3 Up, 3 Down – April 2018 Edition
With another month in the books, the end of April 2018 brings us closer to the midpoint of the year yet again. With titles such as Far Cry 5 and Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom making waves back in March 2018, what takes the top honors from April? Without further ado, let us take a look at three of the best and worst games from April 2018.
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life
With many of the franchise’s titles releasing recently as well as soon, Yakuza 6: The Song of Life continues the franchise’s foray into the West with its latest entry yet. Yakuza 6 is the final game featuring protagonist Kazuma Kiryu, giving him his final swan song. In our review, we found that although “this may be the Dragon of Dojima’s last kick at the franchise… he leaves on a high note that will satisfy the yakuza in all of us.
Super Daryl Deluxe
Coming in relatively under the radar in April 2018 is Super Daryl Deluxe, a third-person RPG with customizable, brawler-style combat. With a unique art-style and hilarious cynicism, Super Daryl Deluxe is a “perfect storm” of aesthetics, gameplay, and story so to speak. In our review, we noted that “Super Daryl Deluxe masterfully combines the outlandish qualities of a graphic novel with the fun and ease of a classic arcade game.”
God of War
Lastly, possibly the frontrunner for Game of the Year so far, is God of War. Already touted ahead of time as the biggest release of April 2018, God of War met all expectations and perhaps even exceeded some. This entry in the long-running, violent franchise shakes up the formula with new RPG elements, camera angles, and combat style to name a few. Despite the franchise being highly regarded with quality titles, our very own Patrick Anderson claims that “God of War isn’t just a great God of War game, it’s the best so far.”
