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.
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.
Summary: The good: It's a shooter and platformer. It's on a portable system. Game Sins: Discount Metroid. *ding* Your camera is stuck at weird angles. *ding* You can only shoot in a grid # like this. *ding* Critters can come at you in diagonals X like this. *ding*
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.
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.
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.
