Summary: "Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars" is primarily a platform questing game with a spirit that recalls Mario and such titles. Playing a mushroom man called Pax the gamer is taken through about ten levels wherein Pax, who naturally has a bug's eye view of the world, tries to collect meteor fragments that are responsible for giving he and his fellow 'shrooms (among other animals) a sentience.
Summary: If you are looking for an epic platforming game that will eat up several days or weeks of your time, then no, this game is not for you. If you are looking for a game that reinvents platformers, no this is not the game for you. If you're looking for a visually appealing game that will only take a couple days to play and have you coming back a second time to collect the goodies, pick this up. Story: A meteorite falls to the earth and gives mushrooms sentient life.
Summary: *Introduction* The 3d platformer is a dying genre. Once one of the more popular styles of games back in the N64/Playstation era it seems like the only notable titles in the current era are the Super Mario Galaxy games. There have been a few sleeper hits like Psychonauts, but they have been few and far between. Now we have Mushroom Men, a quirky new platformer that is reminiscent in many ways of the old N64 style platformer with a few twists of its own.
Summary: My daughter and I played Mushroom Men together. I gave it to her for her 12th birthday as a something we could do together. We played in single player mode and switched who used the controller periodically, but she did the playing most of the time. We were a little disappointed about how short it was, but we really enjoyed it. The graphics were great, and the world was very detailed and imaginative.
Summary: I loved playing this game. The controls were pretty easy, the enemies were just challenging enough to not be jarring, and sometimes I had explore quite a lot to progress. The only problem I have is that it's too short. I'm glad I own a copy, but it would have been simple to just rent it over a weekend and beat the whole thing. It has minigames and extras, if you're into that sort of thing, but none of them really kept my interest for long. Solid music for the most part.
Summary: This fun game offers a lot of bang for the buck. The world is visually beautiful and interesting, and the music is great. If I hadn't finished it in only 2 weeks, I would still be playing it at every opportunity. I liked the controls on the Wii, even though I thought at first it would be too simplistic.
Summary: Its not your Resident evil kind; none of the 'serious' killing. But, if you like something thats light but gives you enuff chance to kill the 'baddies', then you will like the game. Its gets a little easier as you go along, there is not much in the shape of puzzle(s) to unlock. So, you probably wont play it the second time around. Its very interesting while you keep playing, though.
If you suspect you might like it, you probably will.

Summary: This is one of those games that you can actually judge by the cover. Let me break it down: 1) The cover looks like it came straight out of 90's concert poster. 2) If you're a fan of that style, undoubtedly you're a fan of Primus, whose main man Les Claypool does the soundtrack. 3) Since you enjoy the style, you're going to have fun exploring the world which is incredibly detailed - brand name puns, current event references, even little things like a note lying on the...
