Showing 1-5 of 5
Left 4 Dead
22 November 2008
Conclusion: Did you like that tale of horror from Left 4 Dead? If you did, get your hands on this game as fast as you can because your own zombie-infested nightmares are waiting for you. Left 4 Dead isn't a game, but a sweat-soaked survival experience of zombie apocalypse proportions!
Pros: Addictive co-op multiplayer; great in-game dialogue; zombies; guns to kill the zombies!
Cons: Only ships with four movies with Versus mode limited to only two movies.
Excerpt: Have you ever played a game's sequel first and thought "I like this - I should go back and play the original?" Were you disappointed? Did you then have to review the original that you were disappointed in? Because that's what I'm about to do. It's difficult to be impartial, and more difficult still to give a score that compares the game to its contemporaries rather than games that have come later.
Conclusion: While this is by no means the greatest game you will ever play, it is one of the best pastimes available for any system---and the fact that it is portable means you can kill time anywhere. As long as you are not expecting a traditional Pokemon game, Mystery Dungeon delivers.
Pros: Lots of surprises; good replay value.
Cons: Some difficulty issues; plain sound effects.
Excerpt: Any Pokémon fan worth their salt knows all about the core, 'proper' Pokémon games. We're talking about the likes of FireRed and LeafGreen, Gold and Silver, and Ruby and Sapphire. With the next 'proper RPG' Pokémon game still a considerable way off, fans of the competitive critters are left to look elsewhere. Poké-nuts will have to make do with the release of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, a warm-up to the main event.
