Scurge Hive

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Scurge Hive is a bargain bin Nintendo DS video game that I found while doing some retail research. It is a Metroid clone that accentuates the violence at the highest degree possible for an E10+ rated video game. These creatures start to take over ships, colonies, space stations; etc.

  • Conclusion: Scurge: Hive erinnert in einigen Aspekten an Metroid Fusion. Nicht nur das Szenario, sondern auch einige Designelemente ähneln sich offensichtlich. Dennoch kann der Titel auch mit einigen Eigenheiten punkten und so kommt dem Spiel vor allem das Hack and Slay-artige Spielprinzip zugute.
