Excerpt: There is little Blast Factor can do to escape comparisons to Geometry Wars. This gaudy neon dual-stick shooter sees you battling rapidly spawning hordes in an enclosed area, and is a key release for the new PlayStation Network service.
Excerpt: Now we leave our nostalgia at home, where we can keep a close eye on it or stash it under the bed when company comes over (right next to the crusty Playboy). After all, they might think we're nutty for indulging in such childish passions!
Conclusion: The games value is by far the most interesting aspect to the title. While the game may not be an entirely new concept, its well worth is price mark. The single player download sets gamers back roughly $9.99, with the multi-player pack costing about $2.99.
Summary: The fourth instalment of Fallout 3 has finally landed. 'Point Lookout' comes in at 800 MS points and promises around 3 to 4 hours of additional gameplay. As with 'The Pitt', you will be taken outside of the Capital Wasteland, this time into an area that is reminiscent of Point Lookout State Park.
Pros: Large new area to explore, Fantastic characters and quests, A wealth of content given the price
Cons: Higher difficulty than usual, A lot of wandering to be done, -
Excerpt: Blast Factor is one of the PSN's pioneering games, drawing similarities with Asteroids, Geometry Wars, and…well, most retro space-shooters. The question is, have Bluepoint Games and Sony delivered something to match such iconic products?
Conclusion: All of which may conspire to leave little old Blast Factor sitting unhappily and alone in its own little unwanted circle of calm. It's undeniably decent, you see, but then so am I, and Keeley Hawes still doesn't answer my letters.
