Join us in taking Soedesco’s musical-themed RPG, AereA, down into the orchestra pit for a rhythmic quickie.
Any other concerns or complaints?
In spite of the presentation niggles, like many games before it, AereA doesn’t require lifelike graphics to be fun to play. The single player option can get a little repetitive, but get a friend to join you on the sofa (there’s no online co-op) and you’ve got an entertaining little number.
With all that in mind, does it come recommended?
It doesn’t take Mozart or Beethoven to see/hear that AereA isn’t an all-time classic, but don’t let that dissuade you if you’re a fan of isometric action RPGs, as you’ll definitely find something to enjoy here.
AereA is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Oh...Sir! is the latest in a line of comedic simulation games, but is this joke one-note, or does it have legs? Join Sam for a quick one and let’s find out.
Due to the random element it varies wildly; sometimes you’ll be presented absolute gold, while others you’ll just have to make an absurd statement that doesn't really mean anything. The answer to the question also depends on your taste in comedy, and potentially your location, as it’s all very well-natured and British. It coaxed a few chuckles and plenty of smiles out of me.
Is that enough for a recommendation?
When you consider the tiny asking price of £2.39, yes, it is. Oh...Sir! can occasionally be frustratingly particular in ruling what is and isn’t proper grammar or sentence structure (I just writed this, I think you’ll find I know my stuff, game...), but otherwise it’s a thoughtful and funny little package that can be enjoyed solo or competitively against players both online and locally.
