Another month, another Humble Monthly. If you were looking forward to the early unlocks of November, here’s what you’ll get. It’s a rather dissimilar trio of games, though I’m sure the fun you’ll have with them is quite consistent. The biggest game is definitely the military first-person shooter Call of Duty: WWII. The other two are classic 3D platformers, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Spyro Reignited Trilogy, which are at least a dynamic duo that go well together. So let’s dig in and see what you can expect from these games from the November edition of Humble Monthly.
Call of Duty: WWII on Humble Monthly
Call of Duty: WWII was a 2017 entry in the hallmark military first-person shooter series, when studio Sledgehammer Games brought the series back to World War II. The reception was generally favorable, with critics praising the story, the combat support of squad members, and the return of the health bar in single-player, visuals, Zombies, and multiplayer modes. One latent criticism, however, was that the title suffered from a lack of innovation. Some considered it too similar to past Call of Duty games set in that era. Even so, this might be one of the few recent Call of Duty games I’m interested in.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is a collection of remasters of the first three games in the Crash Bandicoot series, Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot: Warped. The remastering was the work of studio Vicarious Visions rather than Naughty Dog, who developed the originals. It was released in 2017, with a mostly favorable reception from most outlets. The originals were PlayStation exclusives, so if you were looking to try the PC version, now is the best time to get it for a bargain with the Humble Monthly.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy
This is another collection of remastered exclusive PlayStation games, namely Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. Insomniac Games developed the original games, with studio Toys for Bob being responsible for the remasters. These remasters also didn’t blow anyone way, but they are competent at what they do, giving fans a chance to enjoy these classic platformers with nicer and more contemporary graphics, as well as being available on PC.
In order to unlock these games, you’ll have to subscribe to Humble Monthly for the paltry sum of $12. It will also give you access to the late unlocks (which will unlock when they announce the next Humble Monthly), which is a lot of bang for your buck. If you still don’t have a thriving backlog of unplayed games, here’s the chance to start one.
