Excerpt: SEGA sure is deserving of some praise from the “hardcore” gamer crowd. If not for their efforts in releasing mature games on the Wii or their penchant for keeping retro gaming alive, this new real-time space combat DS game is another offering from SEGA to save the dedicated gamer from a market of disposable handheld games.
Excerpt: I’ll admit that the only reason I was first interested in Infinite Space was because it had a catchy name that caught my eye while searching through IGN’s release date calendar months ago (though the game was called Infinite Line back then). As I dug deeper, I found out it was an RPG made by Platinum games, of Bayonetta and Madworld fame, and since those guys have a pretty good track record, I was optimistic about this title.
Summary: Infinite Space is an RPG that takes place in outer space and gives players the ability to control, build, outfit and customize more than 150 spaceships, offering over 200 characters and the ability to control multiple spaceships at any one time.
Excerpt: Infinite Space brings together two of my favourite things in life: JRPGs and space-opera. For those with geek-levels matching my own, such a combination is irresistible. While Mass Effect's allegiances lie firmly with western RPG mechanics, and the Star Ocean series only really uses space as a setting in the pseudo sense, Infinite Space brings the two components together seamlessly.
