Game Review: State of Decay

Game Review: State of Decay

State of Decay launched on Xbox 360 Arcade & for Windows, this downloadable single player game is available at a sum of 1600 Microsoft Points. Yes this is another zombie based title that’s swirling around the video game market, after journeying into the open World with cautious optimism I have come to absolutely adore what State of Decay is all about. After viewing the trailer my heart filled with dubious expectations, I am happy to report this release sinks its terrifying claws right into you and serves as an exceptional product to add into any survival horror fans collection!...

Game Review: CastleStorm

Game Review: CastleStorm

For years, gamers have been divided over the tower defense genre. You either love it or hate it. I happen to not be such a great fan of it. The repetitive gameplay, the endless waves of enemies. Millions of games, all of them pretty much identical. Every once in a blue moon, we get an attempt at innovation in tower defense games. We saw it in Dungeon Defenders. We see it again with this title, CastleStorm. It starts out like most higher-shelf tower defense games: it gives you a flimsy reason for the two sides to fight. Something about a goddess... Read On

Game Review: Mars: War Logs

Game Review: Mars: War Logs

Indie games are constantly criticized and compared to higher budget titles mercilessly. Mars: War Logs is the best example of this sort of scenario. It does an amazing job in demonstrating that it has the potential to do something great-even against titles with bigger budgets. War Logs immerses players as Roy Temperance; a soldier who was captured and sent to a POW (prisoner of war) camp during the war between two large water companies on Mars known as Abundance and Aurora. Shortly after, another soldier known as Innocence arrives, having been captured and brutalized by his fellow inmates, Roy believes that it is the... Read On

Game Review: Tomb Raider

Game Review: Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider is a very iconic franchise and it’s been quite some time since Lara Croft had a great game. Crystal Dynamics tackled the challenge of brining Lady Croft to both new and old fans in this refreshing reboot with great gameplay that helps tell a great story, showing that there is still plenty of life left in Lara Croft. Lara Croft is already a well established character. But rather than just churn out another Tomb Raider that has any ties to the previous games, they chose to start fresh and reboot the franchise starting with a retelling of... Read On

Game Review: Awesomenauts

Game Review: Awesomenauts

Tower defense is a funny thing- it becomes a lot more fun when it goes back to its multiplayer roots as the 2D MOBA, Awesomenauts, proves with style and humour. The game’s intro is excellent and sums up, in cheesy, glorious Saturday-morning-cartoon style the origin of the Awesomenauts, which then segues into the game’s tutorial. To be honest, I felt a bit disappointed that the game didn’t feature any actual campaign besides the neat bit of story in the intro and tutorial- not that most MOBAs feature any sort of campaign to begin with, but it feels like there was a missed...

Game Review: Skylanders Giants

Game Review: Skylanders Giants

When I first heard about Skylanders, I honestly didn’t have very high expectations- a game centered around physical toys sounded a bit gimmicky- sure, having physical toys that actually incorporate themselves into the game sounds cool, but honestly, how good can the game be? When I played Skylanders: Spyo’s Adventure last year, I was pleasantly surprised- the addition of toys didn’t feel tacked on, but was really a well-integrated part of the game. Walking into the game’s sequel, Skylanders Giants, I was once again impressed, for this game had managed to improve upon its predecessor. First, a bit of... Read On

Game Review: Double Dragon Neon

Game Review: Double Dragon Neon

In the following review I will discuss the game, Double Dragon Neon, I will focus mainly on the gameplay aspects in general rather than comparing the title to its predecessor which was released in the beat ’em up heyday. Video games have come along way in the past few decades and it is important to remember its historic roots as it is with many other notable form of media or entertainment such as comics and films. The task seems to be a difficult one in terms of bringing a game that was a hot seller in 1987 and presenting... Read On

Game Review: Chester

Game Review: Chester

    Indie games are normally known and seen as games that raise the bar in video game creativity. Brilliant Blue-G’s latest title, Chester, a game that could have been downloaded on Indie Game Stand for free is the title that most if not all indie developers should look to as a role model in terms of creativity. The title is a platformer that mixes not only strategy, but also RPG elements and cartoonish art design.     You play as Chester, a sort of monster-looking fellow who is adventuring through levels without any reason as to why. There is no sort... Read On

Game Review : Gateways

Game Review : Gateways

What do you get when you combine the complex level design of Metroid with Portal’s critical thinking? Simply enough, a decent indie game.Gateways is, in spirit and gameplay, the child of these two stupendous titles, and without a doubt, Smudged Cat Games have taken a fair amount of creativity from both titles to create this one. You play as Ed, a brilliant scientist who happens to be locked in his own lab by a mysterious individual.  As you explore the lab, Ed realizes that the gateway guns (of his own invention) are scattered throughout the laboratory, and must find them to escape. Sadly,... Read On

Game Review: Darksiders 2

Game Review: Darksiders 2

Darksiders was a great game. Not only did it have a good story going for it, the gameplay was a nice blend of hack n’ slash and dungeon exploring much like the Legend of Zelda series. Of course as with most sequels, Darksiders 2 aims to be a bigger game in scope. However bigger does not always mean better and Darksiders 2’s attempt at being bigger hurts it in more ways than one. The story in Darksiders 2 does not pick up after the events of the first game which is odd for a sequel. Instead it tells the... Read On

Game Review: Let’s Dance with Mel B.

I’ve often wondered if Dance Central had any real competition besides Just Dance. I mean, are there any other dance games that set themselves apart from Dance Central by bringing something new to the table, by being unique, by taking the whole experience one step further? http://youtu.be/_hP_YGY9j7I I’m afraid I was kind of disappointed by Let’s Dance with Mel B, partially because Dance Central set the bar rather high for a Kinect dance game, but mostly because this game seems to miss the bar set for an average game made sometime during the last generation. What does Let’s Dance... Read On

Game Review: The Walking Dead Episode 1

There are a ton of zombies games out there on the market so it came as no surprise that following the success of the incredibly awesome Walking Dead tv series that a came based on the franchise would inevitably make its way onto the scene. And sure enough Telltale Games, the folks behind the Back to the Future games have done just that. And while the game falls short in some aspects, overall it does a great job of capturing what makes The Walking Dead franchise awesome. Based on the comic book series The Walking Dead, Episode 1 takes... Read On

Game Review: Dust: An Elysian Tail

You know, I think it’s dangerous to review a game when you’re excited about it. I mean, if I’m really pumped for something that’s been hyped up, and I play it, am I really enjoying it? Am I- is my mind- exaggerating? I always worry about that, and I was really concerned that all my excitement over Dust: An Elysian Tail would get in my way. You see, I’ve been waiting a long time for this game- and I’m happy to say that it was worth the wait. Dust is a pretty unique ARPG with an interesting storyline, great... Read On

Game Review: A Virus Named Tom

http://youtu.be/rFNPOOGhjzk Have you ever recognized an Indie game from just looking at it? Well, I sure have, mostly because they either have no voice acting, terrible graphics, or are just plain insipid. A Virus Named Tom is however completely the opposite. The game was developed by the Indie team called Misfit Addict on August 1, 2012. This game is simply superb, and nothing less then what most Indie game titles should be compared to today. It combines the art-work with its fast paced quick thinking gameplay, and incredible voice acting, along with its upbeat soundtrack to make this title... Read On

Game Review: Wreckateer

Game Review: Wreckateer

Truth be told, I didn’t walk into Wreckateer with very high expectations. Besides Dance Central and a couple of other interesting titles, the Kinect hasn’t exactly been receiving the greatest support from developers. I’m happy to say that while Iron Galaxy’s Wreckateer isn’t a mind-blowing-ground-breaking title, it’s definitely a fun experience and worth your time. So what’s Wreckateer about? Simply put, it’s a game about demolition. Too simple? Alright, it’s a game about using some sort of gigantic crossbow/catapult (I feel slightly guilty now remembering which- my guilt drove me to discover that it’s actually a ballista) and using...

Game Review: Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD

I have had something of a love/hate relationship with HD re-releases. What annoyed me is the idea of paying for something old- something you payed for in the past. Right now, however, I think something deep down inside has changed… Maybe, just maybe these re-releases could be a good thing? Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD definitely lives up to the last half of its name. It takes levels and skaters from THPS 1 & 2 (and according to official documentation, Ollie the Magic Bum from THPS3). In addition, the game includes new skaters like Chris Cole and Riley Hawk- and... Read On

Game Review: JAM: Live Music Arcade

Game Review: JAM: Live Music Arcade

JAM: Live Music Arcade is a fresh, and very innovating downloadable title for both PSN, along with XBLA. The game was developed by Zivix, and published by 505 Games on May 16, 2012 redefining the way players experience music  JAM Live itself features a total of 32 tracks from “major, chart-topping artists, as well as indie artist,” such as Panic at the Disco, and Fallout Boy. Additionally, each of these tracks can be fully manipulated, which doesn’t make the player follow keys to the song, but allows them to connect their guitar peripherals in order to dissect each song...

Game Review: Manic Miner

Game Review: Manic Miner

A long, long time ago, music and video games didn’t really get along. This was especially true for the ZX Spectrum- until the likes of Manic Miner came to town. If you’re familiar with the song In the Hall of the Mountain King, then you’ll probably recognize it in Manic Miner, albeit a more broken sounding version… The reason for that is because the song in Manic Miner is alternating the CPU between the music and the game itself. So what does this have to do with my review? Well recently, Manic Miner was re-released on the XBLIG for cheap-... Read On
