Game Pass March 2022 Review – Smaller selection, bigger titles

I’m Kinglink and it’s the second week of March so here’s the March 2022 Game Pass Review. 

This month we have a smaller selection, but there are a couple of massive titles here which are worthy of your attention, at the same time, there is some variety between the Xbox and PC, as well as some cloud-only titles.  There were also a couple of surprise releases not on these lists. 

I’ve already reviewed the Mass Effect Legendary Edition, not once but twice this year already, and it’s only March, it’s the best way to play that series.  However, it’s not radically new, so if you have played previously, it’s just the standard game.    Lawn Mowing Simulator has been delayed for the Xbox One so that is incorrect, but I reviewed it recently, and I enjoyed it as a simulator.  Finally, I don’t have anything to say about Super Mega Baseball 3, it was released 2 years ago already, but I did work on a competitor to it, and haven’t played it so we’ll leave that there. 

But as normal I play all the titles on PC, and I’ll tell you what I think after a few hours of each, how the game is, who is it for, and who will enjoy them.  I’m also going to add in a little audio from the games to give you a flavor of them, it’s an experiment so let’s see how it goes.

Let’s just get started so you can see how it works, and we’ll start with what I thought was the biggest game this month…

Hello, My name is Kinglink I’m back from my second day at E3 2019.

 

So just a quick note, There are three types of demos. There are Hands-on demos, where the player is physically playing the game, that’s all I saw yesterday and it’s the demos you probably have played before. Today I’ve also seen a few “hands off” demos, in these someone from the studio plays the game, talks about it, and doesn’t allow the players control. Finally, there are trailers, but what’s the point of those, you get the same experience at home, to be honest. Now theoretically, hands-off demos could be pre-recorded footage and players miming the inputs, but again we will use the benefit of the doubt for these companies, so let’s assume no one is doing that.
