OVERVIEW Last week I went on a Steam binge and meticulously picked out a copy of Josiah Roche - The CEO; I have not been able to put it down since. The game constantly amazes me and brings new elements to next-generation gaming.
STORYLINE Set in the 21st century on Earth, there lived a being of great stature. Although not much of a backstory is present, players resume the role of a mysterious character named Josiah. With unique twists and bends in the mix, this interesting narrative explores the depths of Josiah's career and how he came to be (at least the G-rated version).
GAMEPLAY The replay value of this game is incredibly unforgiving - with no save or load options, each choice you make will define the end game. With incredible events, players get to explore this massive open-world game - which is at least 4000 times larger than that of Skyrim. Players can travel the gameworld in multiple vehicles, can perform thousands of actions and can drink coffee! Lotsa Coffee!! Over the course of this game, you encounter enemies, friends, love, job opportunities, and loss. Pretty average conceptually, yet this gameplay is presented with great polish.
GRAPHICS Josiah may be amazing in every other way, but the graphical fidelity seriously brings this performance to its knees. Pictures posted on the in-game's Facebook are of low quality, and his facial detail clearly hasn't been given any attention (Those eyebrows need some serious plucking). Overall, shocking work from the Roche family on this one. Not even the remarkable gameplay can save Josiah from the mess that is Josiah's visuals.
AUDIO Other than the purely text-based game, I personally have never heard Josiah Roche, because he lives a long way away from me, but his girlfriend tells me that he sings like an angel. Seriously. ... That's all I have to say.
VERDICT APRIL FOOLS! This review is a big fat fake! See you next year!
