Review Round-Up - July 2016

It was hot like Hell outside this past month, so why not play a game that partially takes place IN Hell?
That's what DOOM was for, SuperPhillip Central's Game of the Month for July.
It's the start of a new month! I hope you guys' July was a fantastic one! It was pretty nice here on SuperPhillip Central despite Central City being very hot outside. That just meant I could have an excuse to spend time indoors and play some games for review. Hence, the Review Round-Up for July 2016!

This month was special because it was the month where I covered my first PlayStation 4-exclusive game, Killzone: Shadow Fall! It gunned for a great score, and received a B- for its trouble. Then, Tearaway: Unfolded, another PS4 exclusive, was covered, crafting its way to a B. Following that was SuperPhillip Central's Game of the Month for July, DOOM, going through Hell and back to get an impressive A- score. Moving on from that great shooter, Trine: Enchanted Edition once again was reviewed, but this time it was its PS4 port, earning a B+. Finally, Mighty No. 9 surprised me with its gameplay quality, though everything else was pretty disappointing for how much the budget of the game was. It got an average C score, as did Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins, the lone retro review of the month.

Killzone: Shadow Fall (PS4) - B-
Tearaway: Unfolded (PS4) - B
DOOM (PS4, XB1, PC) - A-
Trine: Enchanted Edition (PS4) - B+
Mighty No. 9 (Multi) - C
Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins (PSP) - C

Likewise, the other featured game this past month, Mighty No. 9, was one that
some players felt like was FROM Hell, but not this reviewer!
