Get Ready to Investigate with The Last Case of Benedict Fox on Xbox

Are you a fan of detective games that keep you on the edge of your seat? Well, get ready to put your investigative skills to the test with The Last Case of Benedict Fox on Xbox. This game is full of twists and turns that will have you questioning everything and everyone.

The Last Case of Benedict Fox is a Metroidvania action-adventure video game set in Victorian-era England. You take on the role of a self-proclaimed detective. As you explore the world, you’ll come across various characters and locations and uncover dark secrets that have been hidden for years. 

Alongside the main storyline, several side quests to tackle will test your deductive skills even further. These side quests offer unique rewards, allowing you to dive deeper into the story and meet various interesting characters. As you search for answers and progress through the game, new puzzles that require your full attention if you want to succeed will be unlocked. With each step, you get closer to finding out what happened – but beware; nothing is ever as it seems!

Overview of Gameplay and Storyline

The gameplay is primarily investigative, with some light puzzle-solving and combat. You’ll spend most of your time exploring, collecting items and solving cryptic puzzles. The combat is relatively simple and straightforward, but taking down enemies is still satisfying. 

The game follows the story of Benedict Fox, a detective who uses his father’s corpse as a portal to travel between different dimensions and explore the memories of deceased victims. He is also haunted by a mysterious spirit called the Companion, who lives inside his body and grants him magical abilities. He is on a quest to uncover the secrets of his family and a cult that worships an ancient evil.

Games Strongest and Weakest Aspects

The game’s strongest aspect is its art style and atmosphere. The game looks gorgeous, with detailed pixel art and smooth animations. The environments are varied and rich in detail, from the elegant mansion where the game begins to the eerie catacombs and temples where the cult operates. The game also uses lighting and shadows effectively to create a sense of mood and tension. The music and sound effects are also well done, adding to the immersion and suspense.

The game’s weakest aspect is its gameplay and design. The game tries to combine mystery, horror, action, and platforming elements but fails to deliver on any of them. The mystery aspect is shallow and linear, with little room for exploration or deduction. The game tells you where to go and what to do most of the time, leaving little challenge or agency for the player. The horror aspect is also weak, with few scares or surprises. The game relies too much on jump scares and gore, which lose their impact after a while. The action aspect is frustrating and repetitive, with clunky combat and annoying enemies. The game’s difficulty is inconsistent, with some sections being too easy and others being too hard. The platforming aspect is also flawed, with imprecise controls and unreliable mechanics. The game’s double-jump ability is especially problematic, as it sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t.

Graphical and Sound Quality

The graphical and sound quality of Benedict Fox is some of the aspects that many players and reviewers have praised. The game features detailed pixel art and smooth animations that create a gorgeous, atmospheric visual style. The game also uses lighting and shadows effectively to create a sense of mood and tension. The game’s sound design is also well done, with a fitting soundtrack and sound effects that add to the immersion and suspense. The game’s graphics and sound are also adjustable in the settings menu, allowing players to customize their experience according to their preferences and system capabilities.

Known Bugs

Benedict Fox bugs are some of the technical issues that players have encountered while playing the game The Last Case of Benedict Fox. Some of the reported bugs are:

  • Getting stuck in certain areas or sequences due to glitches or missing items.
  • Getting kicked out of the map’s boundaries by enemies or physics.
  • Having unreliable or inconsistent mechanics, such as double-jump or sand ability.
  • Having performance problems like crashes, freezes, or low frame rates.

Some of these bugs may be fixed by restarting the game, loading a previous save, or updating the game to the latest version. However, some of them may require a patch from the developers to be resolved. If you encounter any bugs while playing the game, you can report them to the developers via their official website or social media channels.

Replay Value

The replay value of Benedict Fox is a subjective matter that depends on the player’s preferences and expectations. Some players may enjoy replaying the game to experience different variations of the ending, collect all the memories, or explore different paths and secrets. Some players may also appreciate the game’s art style and atmosphere, which are widely praised by reviewers and players alike.

However, some players may find the game too short, linear, or frustrating to replay due to its gameplay and design issues, such as bugs, glitches, crashes, poor combat, inconsistent difficulty, and confusing story. Therefore, the replay value of Benedict Fox may vary depending on the player’s taste and tolerance for the game’s flaws and strengths.

Final Verdict

My final verdict for The Last Case of Benedict Fox is that it is a game that has potential but fails to deliver on it. It is a game that looks great but plays poorly. It is a game that tries to do too much but does too little. It is a game that could have been great but ends up being just okay. I give this game 3 out of 5.

The Last Case of Benedict Fox is available for Xbox Series X/S and PC via Steam and Epic.

Pemain video game seantero dunia baru-baru ini angin satu badan dengan gergasi Microsoft kerana meletakkan beberapa perkara yang tidak popular pada Konsol Xbox One. Antaranya adalah:

  1. Perlu connect ke internet setiap 24jam
  2. Tak boleh share game dengan kawan²
  3. Tak boleh main game second hand.

Ini adalah antara penyebab ramai gamers seluruh dunia panas bontot kerana konsol hebat ini tidak mesra pengguna, sehingga ramai yang mahu menukar “agama” mereka. Perkara ini memberi peluang kepada Sony untuk memperkenalkan PS4 di E3 dengan elemen yang lebih mesra pengguna iaitu “Anda boleh kasi kawan pinjam game PS4 anda”. Siap dengan video yang cukup menganjing lagi. (Lihat video)

Cadangan yang tidak mesra pengguna ini telah memberi impak yang besar kepada gergasi Microsoft. Boleh dikatakan kebanyakan gamers seluruh dunia tidak suka dan mengambil sikap anti kepada Microsoft terhadap keputusan ini. Keperluan untuk connect ke internet setiap 24 jam adalah sesuatu yang mengarut dan tidak boleh diterima. Andai kata internet tidak ada, maka Xbox One akan menjadi kotak hiasan yang sangat mahal. Analoginya begini, kita baru pindah ke rumah baharu atau internet ada masalah atau mungkin kita ada masalah dengan router atau mungkin ISP kita ada masalah dengan internet. Oleh kerana internet tidak ada… Xbox One tidak boleh digunakan. Sungguh tidak boleh diterima.

Semenjak dari hari pengumuman mengenai polisi yang tak popular ini, Micorsoft menerima kritikan keras dan padu serta pedas daripada gamers seluruh dunia. Di tambah pula dengan social media network dan Meme images yang cukup ganas. Akhirnya polisi yang cukup ketat ini digugurkan dan saya quote:

An internet connection will not be required to play offline Xbox One games – After a one-time system set-up with a new Xbox One, you can play any disc based game without ever connecting online again. There is no 24 hour connection requirement and you can take your Xbox One anywhere you want and play your games, just like on Xbox 360.

Trade-in, lend, resell, gift, and rent disc based games just like you do today – There will be no limitations to using and sharing games, it will work just as it does today on Xbox 360.

Dengan ini secara rasminya Xbox One

  1. Tidak memerlukan internet setiap masa
  2. Boleh main game second hand atau game pinjam kawan²
  3. Tidak ada region lock (yeahaaa)

Mungkin ramai yang tidak jadi lompat kapal dan mungkin juga ada yang akan meneruskan niat mereka untuk lompat kapal. Apa-apa pun, Microsoft telah sedar bahawa pengguna… mempunyai kuasa yang kuat. Do not mess with the mobs.

Berhati-hatilah gamers tegar!!!

Saya ada terbaca di mengenail bahana farmwille dan World of Warcraft. Boleh dijadikan bahan untuk menjahanamkan bakal bekas isteri atau bakal bekas suami.

Tajuknya : Farmville, World of Warcraft Are Divorce Lawyers’ Latest Weapons in Court

Father seeks custody of the kids, claiming (among other things) that his ex-wife never attends the events of their young ones. Subpoenaed evidence from the gaming site World of Warcraft tracks her there with her boyfriend at the precise time she was supposed to be out with the children. Mom loves Facebook’s Farmville, too, at all the wrong times.

Hehehe. Bahaya sungguh. Nasib baik saya dah pulih dari ketagihan World of Warcraft. Oleh itu, kepada pemain2 game yang tegar. Berhati-hatilah, kot2 ada je mata yang memandang dan dengan penuh rasa jahat, mengambilnya sebagai ebiden untuk mendakwa anda atas dasar kurang bertanggung-jawab kerana terlalu leka bermain game.

GiantBomb: A gamers heaven

It has been a while since I talk about games. I was an avid gamer before married. I used to play World of Warcraft as if tomorrow would end. Now, my level 80 rogue and Death Knight are having their vacation. Afterall, they (Blizzard) will never delete them. Well, considering the fact me returning to Orgrimmar once, the next expansion is released. (Grammatical Errors.. I know! Begone!)

Jeff Gerstmann, after being fired from his position as Editorial Director of GameSpot created GiantBomb with an intention to create fun video game sites. Perhaps, as the name had suggested, to compete with GameSpot. Well, I never like GameSpot, plague by ads. Too many of them. I want to read about games not about shavers (at the time of writing, Gamespot is featuring Schick Hydro 3). What a bummer. What does Shaver has got to do with games?

What makes GiantBomb so special?

Well, first of all, GiantBomb is no ordinary Video Games site. This is more like community hang out. A community driven Video Games site. Users can create blog, reviews, wiki, forum and edit the contents. Power to the users. As far as I am concerned, this is the only Video Games website that is free from ads., business oriented news or cover (hint : GameSpot) and best of all, GiantBomb has trivia and latest addition… achievements or quest system

The quest system add more fun and addiction to GiantBomb and off course, accessing this site has more meaning than just browsing.

Let us relate GiantBomb with Librarians 5 Laws

  1. Video Games are for play.
  2. Every player his [or her] games.
  3. Every game its player.
  4. Save the time of the gamer.
  5. GiantBomb is a growing organism.

Basically, GiantBomb is one stop centre to all gamers around the world. I don’t know, maybe it’s me. Eversince GiantBomb was launced, all of my decisions to buy Games for Xbox360, PS3 and even PC come from here.
