Summary: The above text is taken from Sine Mora , one of the most aesthetically-pleasing, fun, and thought-provoking games to come out in some time. That it also contains the most brilliant, concise summary of a critic’s ethos is just the cherry on top. Sine Mora may be playing within an age-old genre (the shoot-em-up), but it manages to progress this entire medium as a whole.
Excerpt: dazzled the eye on Xbox Live and it has finally arrived on the PlayStation Network. A vibrant, old-fashioned side-scrolling shooter with a time-bending twist, the game features a truly bizarre story and characters, a wicked steep challenge, and an addictive quality that really can’t be ignored.
Conclusion: If you want a real serious, good review of what this game has to offer, check out Allen’s vita review here . Otherwise, know that it is worth every single one of the ten dollars this is asking for. If you have the chance to pick it up, even if you have virtually no interest in a shoot’em up, you would be doing yourself a huge disservice by not doing it.
Summary: Even after several updates, this line from my review of the Xbox 360 version still holds true: “A rigidly strict shooter set amidst a fluctuating cloud of random power-ups and chameleon-like bullets, Sine Mora is at once infuriating and addictive.” The new additions—Challenge Mode and pilot Wilhelmina Muller—definitely make this the version to get, but the rigid rules, cheap kills, and sections so insidiously designed it seems as if the designers have something personal...
Excerpt: Player(s): 1 Extra Features: Leaderboards Sine Mora is a side-scrolling shoot'em up co-developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and Digital Reality. The game is available for $9.99 on the PS Store or 800 points on the Xbox LIVE marketplace. This shooter features 3D environments and still retains the familiar 2D gameplay of many other shooters. The game has a cast of anthromorphic characters that serve as the main characters.
Conclusion: If you haven’t experienced Sine Mora yet, the PSN or PS Vita version is definitely the way to go. The added gameplay elements give it a slight edge over its XBLA counterpart. Regardless of the system you play it on, though, it’s definitely worth playing.
Excerpt: If you grew up in the arcades like I did, you couldn’t have missed the shoot-em-ups. They didn’t exactly stand out to me, but they’ve always had kids playing them. The old-school Galaga and Galaxian-style games gave birth to side-scrollers like Gradius and R-Type, and then other developers took the genre to a whole new level with the birth of the “bullet hell” sub-genre. They have legions of fans dedicated to them, and after playing Sine Mora, I can understand why.
Conclusion: Я бы сказал, что она не адская, а просто нужно время на запоминание всех атак боссов. Я первые пару дней вообще не мог играть, умирал чуть ли не на каждом. Дальше пошло легче, сейчас уже почти без смертей прохожу сюжетку на нормале, а в аркадном режиме смог добраться до третьего уровня, что само по себе является достижением.
