Asylum Reviews: Friday the 13th: The Game [Xbox One].

Image
So this has a bit of a cheek to be classed under the Asylum Reviews title, as it's more of a review in progress, shall we say? But here goes, anyway...


Gun Media and Illfonic's little horror baby Friday the 13th: The Game was released on Xbox One, PS4 and PC last Friday; sadly not the 13th, but a Friday nonetheless. It has been subjected to many a harsh criticism since its launch from gamers and reviewers alike, including myself. However, it does have redeeming qualities that I hope will outshine the shortcomings and ultimately lead to a fully functional game once all the bugs are patched.
Now, I'm reviewing from the Xbox One perspective which has already been confirmed as having some of the worst problems due to a missing day one patch, so bear this in mind whilst reading.

Let's start off with matchmaking. Holy fuck. The matchmaking has been awful so far. Repeatedly I have been waiting 40+ minutes, alternating between watching the little "searching" bar tw…

Asylum Reviews: Injustice 2 [Xbox One].

Image
So we recently got Injustice 2 for Xbox One to review, and it has been every bit as fantastic as we'd hoped. After Injustice: Gods Among Us being a success, we were really looking forward to the second installment, and boy, did it deliver!
Utilizing everything that made the first game great, and adding to it with new mechanics - such as the loot drops which unlock new Gear for you to equip on the wide selection of characters on the roster - 29 in total as of launch - just makes this game so much more awesome. The characters are diverse and very well animated for the most part, and the Gear just adds to the enjoyment as you can customise your fighters how you please. Sadly, The Joker is a little too Leto-esque for my tastes (Ledger ftw). For every battle you play, regardless of if you get annihilated, or completely dominate the opponent, you'll unlock some more Gear, which is broken into five sections: head/cape, torso, gauntlets, greaves and accessories. There are tonnes of t…
