I wish I was more familiar with Disney’s way-back catalog. Sure I’ve seen Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, but prior to The Little Mermaid things get really foggy. Perhaps that’s what made Disney Epic Mickey most intriguing for myself. From the beginning, the developer and publisher have teased us with hopes of checking out [...]
It’s hard to remember a game that made me smile with a delight that wasn’t being brought on by some extreme explosion or sick move. Sure, time spent with Comic Jumper made me laugh out loud, but I never wanted to sit down and give Captain Smiley a big ole hug. Enter a pink marshmallow [...]
When playing through games for review, I like to finish any single player content given to me, as well as play a sizable amount of multiplayer. There comes a time however, where you just have to throw up your hands and say “to hell with this.” I’m at that point with NBA Jam, the newly [...]
At the end of the day, this game is certainly Dead Space. Despite not being as crisp in the graphics department, or as frightening as the first, fans of the original should definitely check it out for a different bit of gameplay in the same, awesome universe. In case this is your first venture against the Necromorphs, it is still a worthy, entertaining, and well made title that will make you say “Hey, why aren’t all light gun games this awesome?”
The biggest drawbacks to Muramasa are its repetitive nature and the amount of pointless backtracking you’ll need to do. Sometimes after taking down a boss, you’ll have to work your way back many unpopulated screens you just fought through to go to a different map branch. It’s completely unnecessary except to get the point across that, hey, you’re going back where you came from to go somewhere else. If you can overlook these few low points, you’ll find a game that’s beautiful, entertaining, and quite addictive. You can easily spend 8+ hours with each character, and plenty more trying to get all the blades. Now, lets see about getting those last few for Momohime…
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.
