Excerpt: We have come to expect lesser quality from lower-priced titles as far as games are concerned, which isn’t surprising with the amount of cheap rubbish taking up valuable shelve space in stores.
Excerpt: The platform game isn’t what it used to be. First of all, “platform” used to mean “platform”, and you’d have to negotiate hundreds of the things to even think about completing some of the larger platform affairs.
Excerpt: If you haven't already had your fill of 3D adventure games (thanks to the likes of Jak & Daxter, Ratchet & Clank, and Crash Bandicoot), then you may want to check out Scaler--a lizard-themed adventure game developed by A2M and published by GlobalStar, Take-Two's budget label.
Conclusion: Lizards just aren't funny. They just aren't funny to look at, unlike ducks, and even if they had the capability to talk, I'm pretty much sure that they wouldn't be able to deliver a punchline properly.
Pros: It's an accomplished game., Tight controls., Good voicing.
Cons: Variable difficulty., Huge gaps in the story telling.
Summary: We have all played as Bandicoots, Fire breathing dragons, humans and god knows what else, but now it is your turn to play as a LIZARD! However you were originally a human! Keeping up? An army geezer who is interrogating you turns you into a dudey blue lizard.
Excerpt: Scaler tells the story of a young boy, Bobby Johnson, who has the nickname Scaler. Bobby got more than he bargained for when he stumbled upon his next door neighbour’s evil plot to take over the world by stealing all the lizards and training them to become his mutant army.
Summary: BioShock 2 ist ein mehr als würdiger Nachfolger zu einem grossartigen Spiel, vom dem Viele behauptet haben, es brauche doch eigentlich gar keine Fortsetzung. Der zweite Ausflug nach Rapture hat vielleicht etwas von seinem Mysterium verloren, mit einer Handlung, die zwar vor den Bildschirm bannt,...
Summary: Scaler er i bunn og grunn bare en variasjon av alt vi har sett før, bare i en til dels mer middelmådig utgave. Spillet stjeler skamløst ideer og elementer fra andre spill i sjangeren, men på sett og vis fungerer det egentlig greit.
