Project Nimbus: Code Mirai PS4 Review
Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share my thoughts on Project Nimbus: Code Mirai by GameCrafterTeam and Kiss Ltd.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of the game from Kiss Ltd for review purposes but like all of my reviews, this had no effect on my thoughts and experiences with the game.
Project Nimbus is a third person giant mech themed game that’s heavily inspired by the many Gundam anime’s as well as the Ace Combat series. The game features a full campaign which puts you in control of mechs from two different factions. There’s also a survival mode where you can pilot numerous types of mechs as you try to survive waves of enemies.
The story follows two different factions, the first is the UCF which is comprised of the US military and a military contractor. The second is the CFN which comprises of Russian forces and represent those that were left behind as the rich ascended into the skies after the last world war devastated the world. As you progress through the campaign, you alternate between the two factions as they carry out offensives against each other. The further into the campaign you get, the more difficult the missions will become. There will be more objectives for you to complete, some of them will also be timed. If you happen to fail an objective you’ll need to start the level from the beginning.
During combat you’ll have various weapons equipped to your mech and you can switch between them using the left and right d-pad buttons. Each weapon has their own capabilities and utilizing them all in various situations will go a long way to keeping you alive Weapons include missiles, railguns, machine guns, a sword, and drones. There’s also flares which you can use to escape incoming missles. Your mech also has boost capabilities which allows you to quickly move around the world or to dodge incoming attacks.
Combat feels fast and fluid throughout the game and it’s incredibly fun blasting other robots out of the sky. Battles can also get seriously intense as well, especially on higher difficulty levels when you’re facing off against the better AI.
Another area that I was quite impressed with was it’s graphics. Many of the levels are beautifully detailed and it really adds to the overall experience. I especially liked the levels that have a lot of water or are during a sunset, those levels are gorgeous.
Overall, Project Nimbus is a pretty awesome game. If you’ve been craving a giant mech game with fast paced combat and fluid controls, Project Nimbus is a pretty great option.
Thanks for taking the time to read this review folks. I’ll be back with my next review soon, until then, happy gaming!
