Excerpt: Having you ever heard the phrase: "seeing is believing?" Well in terms of Stardrone: "playing is believing." This downloadable Playstation 3 video game that works with Move is a strange hybrid.
Summary: There are a lot of genres in video games that provide short bursts of fun for those who lack the attention span to sit through a 40+ hour narrative (myself included). What happens if you take a little bit of each of those genres and blend them all together into a single game?
Excerpt: While I love PSN for something deep, like Flower , or chock full of options, like Pixeljunk Shooter 2 , simple downloadable games can be great fun as well. They just need their own gameplay hook, like being able to push and pull the ball in Shatter , or compacting trash in Trash Panic .
Excerpt: There are a great many quality action/puzzle games on the PlayStation Network; they are excellent contrasts to the $60 big-budget blockbusters. They offer something simple yet charming, accessible, and oh-so-addictive. They are, in short, great for a rainy day.
Excerpt: StarDrone, the latest downloadable from Beatshapers, was something of a surprise . It seemed to land out of the blue, with little build up and even less fanfare, onto the PlayStation Network Store.
Pros: Great visuals., Responsive controls, perfect for the interesting mechanics., Compelling gameplay.
Cons: Move support makes the game a touch too difficult., Music sometimes seems to loop awkwardly.
