Summary: If you're looking for a "metroidvania" styled game with unique combat and ingenious challenges, Guacamelee's a top choice. Stylish day of the dead graphics combined with chiptune enhanced mariachi music create a truly unique atmosphere.
Summary: A great platformer and, like Rayman Legends, another one that achieves the feeling of being a living cartoon. You guide your Luchador (a man at first, but you quickly get the option to swap your protagonist for a female Luchadora) on a quest to rescue the president's daughter.
Summary: Seriously annoying jumping challenges combined with phase switching. Very similar to the new Giana Sisters. It wasn't funny then and this is equally boring. To bad that they mess up an otherwise ok game with crap like that.
Summary: OK, first off you need to have a game controller for this game. It requires split second button clicks at times and there's virtually no way you're going to have the dexterity to use a keyboard unless you have three hands. The game is a rather serious, if amusing, platformer.
Summary: The graphics are great, the art style is original, and the music is pretty good. Provided you're using a gamepad, the game is fluid and responsive. The writing is funny and the dialogue is clever. However, all of this is a smokescreen.
Summary: Love it! Shadow Complex meets Super Meat Boy. Illustrations and Colors are perfect, might be the best looking 2D game in a long time. If you find the combat or bosses in this game difficult, perhaps you need to train more at the 2D gym with the rooster.. which I did... then I dominated.
Summary: I really like it. it is very original! The only problem is that it doesnt support online multiplayer mode. I was able to install configure my ps3 remote to my pc and play this game. just using the keyboard is not good enough for some quest.
Summary: Guacamelee! Gold Edition, is arguably the best of the many modern metroidvania games released recently. While other modern metroidvanias tend to favour combat and RPG elements, Guacamelee instead focuses on providing satisfying, yet interesting and puzzle-like combat, along with many...
Summary: Guacamelee!... A harmony of two dimensional combat and platforming, and exploration, to a lesser degree. This is a style of game like Super Metroid, wherein new abilities acquired steadily throughout allow the player to access paths that are initially blocked.
The best game I've played all year. Forget everything else.

Summary: [The ps3 and PC version are virtually the same, and I played through the ps3 version recently, so I'll be reviewing that version here. But the Gold Edition has all the extra goodies the ps3 version got later on.
