PixelJunk Shooter 2 Review

GamerNode
1 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Q Games has made a habit of producing many small and simple, yet refined and widely appealing downloadable titles with their PixelJunk lineup. For the first time, the developer has chosen to put together a full-fledged sequel to one of the games, and it’s very clear why: PixelJunk Shooter 2 , like its predecessor, offers a sound and satisfying shooter experience whose unique take on the genre makes it something most gamers will not want to miss.

GrimGrimoire PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Real Time Strategy games often take place in either a real lifelike or science fiction setting, most are deadpan serious. Sometimes we have to wonder why developers of such games don’t craft something a little more cheery from time to time. Something with funny little imps and a sense of humour for once. GrimGrimoire just so happens to fit that description. GrimGrimoire is a little richer in story than a lot of similar games.

  • Conclusion: I assumed that I would be making heavy use of the game’s Skip Scene command to blow through the all-dialogue intermissions that bookend each battle, but Grim Grimoire manages to spin a surprisingly compelling yarn. The story borrows heavily from Harry Potter and Groundhog Day, but makes an impact with a dark fairy-tale flavor and a series of well-executed twists.

Grim Grimoire

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Who says real-time strategy games don't work on consoles? Okay, well, most people do and, with reason - with the exception of EA's duo of 360 RTS entries, the genre really hasn't worked on consoles, making Grim Grimoire an even more interesting prospect. Although the choice of genre is enough to generate interest, art style is the first thing that will turn people's heads.

  • Excerpt: Some games simply don't get anywhere near enough attention, but Nippon Ichi should be used to that depressing phenomenon by now. Everyone loves to whine about originality and uniqueness, but they clearly wouldn't be complaining nearly as much if they played more NIS productions such as
