Like Metroid from above

Chaz Ashley, Amazon

  • Summary: I'd say this game is pretty well made, the animations are smooth (till fire oddly..), and the gameplay is classic with some added newer stuff. Though you'll have to understand, this game is pretty much the same as the one on GBA, so it's not pushing the DS graphically by any means. But that doesn't mean it doesn't look good, it plays like a Metroid game would from above, you get upgrades and different gun shots, and you save at stations (imagine that) and you gain levels...

A little confusing but GREAT!

Koopa In A Half Shell "The Red One", Amazon
25 August 2007
  • Summary: I got this game used at GameStop for a mere $7.99. I ripped open the package as soon as I could. I shoved the game in the DS. When I started the game, I had no idea how to play, and the guy who had used it had already unlocked "Hard" mode. At the moment, he was at the final boss in Hard. Naturally a newbie who didn't know how to play got crushed by the final boss while he was INSANELY Hard. So I restarted in Normal, and up till I got to the tether I had a great time.

PURGE your LIVEs of this game...

Koopa In A Half Shell "The Red One", Amazon
12 June 2007
  • Summary: If you own it... The word "scourge" means to punish, chastise, or criticize severely, something you should be doing to yourselves if you picked up this game. Scurge: Hive by SouthPeak Interactive did well to fly this under the radar. Much like Etrian Odyssey and other unhyped games, it just landed on the shelves of video game retailers everywhere one day. And one fateful day, I walked into EB Games and saw Scurge, and I had never heard of it before.

Good game, but needs more flash

Alexander Arias Zeledon, Amazon

  • Summary: I have good fun playing this game, the history is good (if you like sci-fi) the dialogues are funny and the action is constant. What I feel out of place are the graphics, they are very similar to a game boy advance game. I know that the game was launched for the GBA but using the same graphics having more processor capacity is a little lazy from the development part.

Great action/shooter for the DS

N. Durham "Big Evil", Amazon
4 January 2007
  • Summary: Scurge: Hive puts you in the role of a female bounty hunter in space named Jenosa taking on alien parasitic organisms. Yes, that's Scurge: Hive, not anything with the word Metroid in the title. Despite the derivative storyline, Scurge: Hive for the DS provides some great action and shooting elements that fit right at home on the DS. The overhead isometric view of the game provides for plenty of fun shooting elements to go along with exploration and puzzle solving.

Scurge Hive DS Review

jester.hu..., Ciao
27 February 2008
  • Excerpt: "Scurge Hive is a game that perhaps many would overlook but in my opinion it is a sloid platformer that is like he Metroid series. Because of its sci-fi action background the game should be packed to the brim with lots of nice effects and surprises for gamers With the games puzzle solving combat, Bright visuals, good uses of sound effects and creative boss battles that can keep you occupied for some time. But some of the downfalls of this game ...
  • Pros: Bright visuals .  Interesting boss batlles and Good uses of sound effects
  • Cons: Poor aiming system and backtracking can get boring .

Like Metroid, only with Compromises

  • Conclusion: Take the Metroid series, have it at an Isometric perspective, add some RPG-ish elements, and... you have Scurge: Hive.
