Gaming for gaming's sake- Super Powaqatsi Bros World

P. Smith "PedroMiguel", Amazon
12 December 2002
  • Summary: This game is very refreshing. This game has no pretense of trying to tell a story or even acheiving any type of objective (of course there's a plot to it, but very thin and only found in the instruction booklet). All this game tries to do is get you wrapped up in it's trippy light show TRON inspired world. The gameplay is ridiculously simple. Pass a cursor over enemies as soon as you can, release button, zap enemies. Simple as that.

Rez Not Bad, Not Bad At all

  • Excerpt: "...price tag. That being said, Rez manages to avoid some the pitfalls of concept games, but also smacks most of them on. The first thing that'll ring of the concept game syndrome in the price tag. $49.99 for a game like this is unacceptable. I don't care how much Sega's hurting for cash, you can't possibly imagine that this game is going to have the same value as say, Metal Gear Solid 2, Final Fantasy X, or even Tekken Tag Tournament. Fortunately ...
  • Pros: Interesting concepts in the art and music .
  • Cons: Like most concept games, a bit shallow .  Shooter on a "rail" .

A basic shoot-em-up

  • Summary: For anyone who likes the "Tron" film and it's graphics you are going to love the look of Rez. However if you are a avid gamer then but be aware that it's a very short game and quite easy to finish (4 hours and I'm no great shot!), so I would only recommend it as a Hire rather than a Buy.

  • Excerpt: "...fact that the idea of Rez is without any doubt very innovative, I’ll outline some “weak” points of this gameplay. Yes the game is very creative but for those who doesn’t have an “artistic touch” and some specific equipment, will not be able to be satisfied by this gameplay. And when I say equipment I don’t mean the speakers of your telly or a small monitor! To be honest I plugged my Hi-Fi to my 32” TV, ...
