Summary: Those who think videogame reviewers have it easy are, to be honest, mostly correct. Playing videogames all day and getting paid to tell people what one thinks is a pretty sweet deal. Then along comes a game like Razing Storm , and all that easy work is paid for with interest.Â Excuse me while I attempt to write this review with Move-induced arthritis, and swear never again to play a waggle-controlled FPS on the PS3 ..
Excerpt: It seems like light gun shooters are a dime-a-dozen these days – not an easy feat when the genre only sees a handful of releases on consoles per year. Unfortunately, on-rails shooters are often characterized by their shallow gameplay and consistently low replay value. While those shooters can get away with those vices in their native arcade setting as long as they are fun, it becomes problematic in the console domain when modern shooters like Killzone and Call of Duty...
Summary: So do I recommend Time Crisis: Razing Storm? That depends. If you have a Guncom 3 peripheral then you need to get this game. The Guncom 3 peripheral makes the game a lot more fun and is very accurate. If you play with PlayStation Move you’ll notice it probably isn’t as precise as you want it to be although it is playable. But I don’t really recommend going out and buying 2 different Guncom 3 peripherals just so you can play this game.
Summary: Namco's seminal coin-op shooter hits the PS3 for a second outing, this time with Move support. Old-school gamers will find a warm, safe, happy place of destruction amidst the incredibly destructible landscapes and rail-based action. The inclusion of two other coin-op light gun shooters helps pad the short game life as well, and hey, did we mention it's more stuff to use your Move controller with?
Pros: Move controller works great in lieu of a light gun, Awesome amounts of destruction, Three different games
Cons: FPS-mode is awful, All three games are insanely short, Rail-shooters are considered old school for a reason
Excerpt: An arcade staple, Time Crisis has carried on the legacy of light gun shooters for more than a decade. Time Crisis: Razing Storm makes the transition from the arcade to the PS3, supporting Sony's new Move controller, but are the quick thrills worth the coin needed to bring it home? The arcade mode tops the list of Razing Storm's options, tasking you with shooting hundreds of soldiers and robots through three fast-paced levels.
Conclusion: An intriguing set but one that is downplayed significantly due to the controls. Your tolerance may vary though, so it's not a bad idea to rent this one to get the full experience for yourself before buying.
Excerpt: Bringing a collection of arcade favourites and an all new FPS mode together on one disc, Time Crisis: Razing Storm attempts to capture all the joy and excitement of the undisputed "king of arcade on-rails shooters" into your living room.
