Darkwood – PS4 | Review

Too many games hold your hand too tightly, I remember as kid games being quite difficult. No generous checkpoints, no infinite lives, you normally had your three lives and had to make them count. Modern games, in the majority, are very forgiving. You can usually die as many times as…read more >
