Pros: Borrows a cool concept well (at first), Doesn't take itself too seriously, One of the more unique PS Vita launch games

Review: Army Corps of Hell (Sony Playstation Vita)
22 May 2012
Summary: : Army Corps of Hell is a interesting and morbidly charming little game that has a lot of heart (which is as black as the dead of night) but, unfortunately, runs dry at just about the halfway point due to the limited number of things you can actually do with the game collectively.
Summary: Imagine Pikmin with demons and death metal -- that's kind of like what Army Corps of Hell is. Instead of commanding cute little plant-like creatures in an oxygen-heavy forest, you'll command nasty goblins in the bowels of flaming Hell, playing as the former King of the land.
Demonic action-strategy game is filled with blood and gore.

Summary: Parents need to know that Army Corps of Hell is a "Mature"-rated PlayStation Vita game that fuses action with strategy. There is a lot of blood in the game, which can be seen pouring out of fallen creatures when defeated, as well as during cut-scene story sequences.
Summary: " Army Corps of Hell " starts out great. However, the weak graphics and repetitive enemies start to grate after just a couple of hours, and not long after, the gameplay innovation also dries up, making everything a rather tiresome slog.
Summary: 'Army Corps of Hell' is the first title created by Entersphere, a development company created by former Nintendo project manager Motoi Okamoto. He worked on a bevy of titles over the years including 'Wii Fit,' 'Super Mario Sunshine,' 'Wii Play' and 'Pikmin.
Excerpt: My days of headbanging ended a long time ago, but when the title screen for Army Corps of Hell booted up, I'll admit that I slowly started to nod. Square-Enix's first effort for Sony's new handheld is not shy...
Pros: + Fitting soundtrack, + Colorful visuals, + Boss battles are awesome
Cons: Repetitive action, Strategy feels shallow at times
