Reminiscent yet original.S2uRI | Oct. 21, 2011 | Review of Bastion [Playfire]
This game has been an amazing ride...On one hand, I felt like it was reminiscent and true to the old platformers (although it wasn't a platformer) and storytellers, but on the other hand, it felt like an entirely new experience. The visuals were superb and the entire atmosphere of the game was near perfection.
The game director tried something I've never seen before and utilized the narrator to narrate every conceivable scenario for the protagonist, and with the epic voice that is comparable to actor Morgan Freeman, this game just wins it. I can't stress this enough but this is money well-spent.
Unique Top-Down Shooter...S2uRI | Aug. 26, 2011 | Review of Alien Breed 2: Assault
built on the Unreal Engine. It's visual elements are satisfying and intensive. The story and gameplay falls short unfortunately. The story tends to be rather confusing and I sometimes felt it didn't even connect and the gameplay was very linear.
Despite this, co-op with a friend was quite intriguing and fun as it wasn't just all guns and gore. Strategic choke points and positions could be taken during "siege" setups and turrets could be built to defend your position.
This game should be on your list if you have a friend who will play with you.
