Risky Woods Review (PlayStation 5)

For this Risky Woods Review, we go back in time and go through risky woods and murky caves. Stomping Skeletons….traps to trick you….face-gripping flying fiends! Fortunately, you – the young warrior Rohan – have arrived to deliver justice to the evil hordes. With weapons, you must enter the risky woods and free the monks from their petrified captivity. Only when you’ve set the monks free and sent Draxos back to hell will wisdom be restored for good.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
