July 2020 marks the 10 year anniversary of PS Plus. To celebrate, they gave us an additional game Erica, on top of the regularly scheduled line up of NBA 2K20 and Rise of the Tomb Raider.
NBA 2K20 is a basketball game, made to simulate the complete basketball experience.
I can’t tell you whether it is a good basketball game or not, as I don’t know anything about basketball and I don’t play sports games. But the atmosphere was pretty good!
Rise of the Tomb Raider – I was considering not doing a video for this one as I still haven’t played Tomb Raider 2013.
I’m glad I did though. The Tomb Raider series is on my list of next Action Adventure games to play once I have finished Uncharted. It’s beautiful to look at, the action felt fun, and I’m actually pretty interested in the story. All that and I didn’t even reach a proper combat section yet.
Erica is an FMV game that takes around 2 hours to complete, which made it the first full FMV game that I’ve ever played!
Based on my one play-through, I find it a little hard to recommend as I feel I have more questions than answers to the story. However, how much of that will be solved with a second play-through to see the multiple endings is yet to be seen. The cinematography was great and the characters were fun to try and get to know.
Overall, I cannot let my saltiness at sports games alter my opinion. This was a solid month. Maybe not 10 year celebration worthy, but if every month was like this one we couldn’t really complain.
