Reviews for Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death
The true over the top Hollywood blockbusteralphaprospector | Dec. 14, 2013 | See all alphaprospector's reviews »
Marlow Briggs is essentially a fusion of God of War, Indiana Jones/adventure movies and bits of your typical AAA gaming, complete with "dat AAA feel" and all. But there is a catch: the game comes at an affordable prices and knows what it is, so it just plays along with things ludicrously.
Logic is kicked to the stratosphere in exchange for so much action on top of action that goes over the ACTION straight into more action that by the time you finish the game you are left wanting more. It's a breath of fresh air in an ambience full of super pretty, colourful set pieces.
What can I say, give it a try and enjoy the ride, it's just so over the top you cannot just but love it! Recommended!
Great Game, Needs a Sequel Alreadyjkstokes22 | Nov. 17, 2013 | See all jkstokes22's reviews »
Very fun game. The combat is like that found in the God of War franchise and the platforming aspects add a nice mix and change of pace to the overall gameplay. This is a very fun game, especially when you consider how much it costs. (It's often on sale, Thanks Greenman.) This games story line is a little ehh but the commentary from the mask as you play is entertaining and funny, plus the visuals in the environment are crisp and the backdrops are colorful. I definitely recommend this clas.
My Rating is based off of how it compares to games in its budget range...
Surpisingly fun budget gamecommanderhavoc | Oct. 21, 2013 | See all commanderhavoc's reviews »
This game has a lot of cheesy moments as well as a villain who absolutely revels in being evil and not giving a toss about his workers or anything other then profit. And that is what makes this game such a surpisingly fun to play beat 'em up along with a satisfying combat system that will leave your enemies flying all over the place as you fight through hordes of mercs and other foes that stand in your way. Oh and Steve Blum, famed anime, video game and cartoon voice actor, is doing the voice of the Death Mask, he once again does an outstanding job here. If you're looking for something that has the cheesiness of an 80's or 90's action movie along with a combat system not unlike Devil May Cry and such, then you should check this one out.
