While the remake may be good in some ways, it’s bad in a lot of other ways.
Three characters are on a mission to save the dying multiverse. They each have a parallel “self” that guides them on their journey. The worlds are procedurally generated, set in a sci-fi setting. Each character has their own world to explore. Trinity Fusion is a 2.5D, Metroidvania-styled action roguelike. There are enemies to be destroyed, upgrades to be had, and new biomes to explore. Note: Trinity Fusion is currently in early access.
The cult classic makes a return as a video game…but is it worth your time?
Aside from the corny artwork, Frontier Hunter: Erza’s Wheel of Fortune is a great example of how a Metroidvania should get done right. It combines the 2D side-scrolling of both the Metroid series and the Castlevania series, and incorporates a lot of fighting elements as well. Furthermore, there’s some RPG at play here, as your character’s stats will increase after gaining enough experience from defeating monsters. Frontier Hunter is the successor to Tower Hunter: Erza’s Trial.

It’s been a while since we had a 3D Sonic game. The last one we had was Sonic Forces back in 2017, which had been met with lukewarm reception. Sonic’s reputation in the 3D realm has been scarred. He’s turned into a werehog. His arch rival was given a gun. His modern self has met his 90s counterpart. And don’t even get me started with Sonic ‘06. I think Sega tried a little too hard to cater to fan service – that or they just shipped their products to the shelves way too quickly – and for the most part, they failed hard.
