I’m kind of torn with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. On one hand, you’ve got a completely wonderful and fully realized world based off of the same one you’ve been watching in the movies for the past several years, including many of the same voices you’ve come accustomed to. On the other hand, the title just isn’t varied enough in terms of actual gameplay. Still, if you’re a fan of the series, you’ll certainly find something to like about this game and as far as movie tie-ins go? It’s probably one of the best ever made.
The physics introduced make Rocket Riot feel just different enough to keep the dual-stick shooter game type fresh and the art style is something that needs to be checked out. Codeglue has a nice hit on their hands. Rocket Riot is, in fact, a riot.
Plants Vs. Zombies is a charming title, but once you get past all that charm it’s still just another tower defense game that’s light on challenge. For $20 though, its hard not to recommend at least a one time play through just to check out the art, zombie designs and laugh at Crazy Dave’s helmet.
