3 Up, 3 Down – May 2021
May was a decent month of releases, though it was kept adrift by a pair of high-profile remasters. Though May is typically not a month known for huge releases, the slate of games released more than hold their own. Without further ado, here are the three best and worst games of May 2021.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition
Looking back, the Mass Effect trilogy was legendary in its own right, but now it’s official with the Mass Effect Legendary Edition. Having all three of these epic sci-fi games in one package has made it easier than ever to consume. In our review, we conclude that “the story of Commander Shepard as told through Mass Effect Legendary Edition is excellent. It was groundbreaking a decade ago, and it’s still a powerful tale open to interpretation.”
Resident Evil Village
Continuing its success after the remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3, as well as that of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Resident Evil Village does a great job in combining elements of previous games to create its own experience. In our review, we found that “Resident Evil Village is a fitting tribute to the history of the franchise.”
Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster
Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster is the remaster to a classic title in a series that eventually spun off to another popular series in Persona. SMT III: Nocturne HD Remaster is a top-notch horror RPG with an engaging narrative. In our review, we let readers know that “as long as you’re prepared to embrace your inner monster, it’ll be a hell of a time.”
