SpongeBob Squarepants: The Movie Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: While SpongeBob Squarepants: The Movie doesn’t break any new ground and won’t win any game of the year awards it is a solid single player game that will keep youngsters and maybe even people into their 20’s busy for at least twelve hours. With the extras that you can earn numerous challenges to overcome the game offers a fairly enjoyable experience.
Conclusion: If you borrowed, rented or bought MechAssault you will want to make sure you get your hands on a copy of its much bigger brother. The single-player story mode is beefed up and gives players a better representation of life as a soldier in the Mech world and how their role impacts the ever evolving combat tearing the galaxy in pieces. The multiplayer modes are where the game’s success is ultimately going to be measured by the audience.
Excerpt: MechAssault gave Xbox gamers a chance to mount the massive robotic weapons of the Robotech universe, and also had the distinction of being one of the first games that support multiplayer battles via Xbox Live. MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf is more than just a sequel to MechAssault; it expands the array of weapons beyond Mechs and moves the focus of the game to the individual Mechwarrior. Is this a good thing?
Summary: Microsoft's follow-up to their critically
acclaimed robotic title, MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf expands the player's options
with new mechs, weapons, and enhanced abilities. While the game still emphasizes
action and destruction, new features have been added to make the game even
better. Players can now exit their mech and run around, take over other mechs by
jacking into them and more. The single player experience is excellent but the
improved online mode is outstanding.
Excerpt: Of course, nothing ever goes smoothly for our heroes. While out getting supplies, the city you are in comes under attack by mechs. As a result, you are forced to go into action, earlier than “Briefing Boy” would like you to, in your new experimental battle armor, a variation on the Elemental from the first
Summary: Mech Assault 2: Lone Wolf’s biggest downfall is the punishing method you search for games on Xbox Live, and the feeling of imbalance throughout the title. There are a lot of new fantastic aspects such as more tactical team based games, mech-jacking, and fantastic visuals. If you are a huge fan of the Mech Warrior games and mythos, this is a must buy.
Pros: Lots of new additions
Cons: None of the new additions can outweigh the average online play
Excerpt: MechAssault was a fun, but pretty simple game. Using a variety of Mechs you mowed down wave after wave of enemies. This was entertaining in small bursts, but became a little repetitive. The game was also one of the first titles to use Xbox Live, giving it far more longevity than the single player campaign would suggest. While MechAssault 2 adds some new elements into the mix, it is really more of the same. Let's get something out of the way.
Excerpt: MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf continues the massive destructible environments, intense combat and addictive online multiplayer gameplay that gamers have been praising since "MechAssault" first hit Xbox. Continuing in the 31st century, "MechAssault 2" allows gamers to encounter entirely new experiences in the epic BattleTech world.
Conclusion: next sphere, all in a quest for universal conquest. If you first take on the game’s single-player game traversing 20 missions, you will be placed in a sequel immediately following the events of the original game, only this time around you’ll be facing off against the enemies of the 31st Century as a force of only three to start, including a solitary Mech pilot (hence the subtitle of the game, Lone Wolf).
