Excerpt: You have to hand it to Microsoft. Despite being relative newcomers to the gaming scene, their first-party development teams are already becoming powerhouse developers whose games have proved integral to the sustained success (such as it is) of the Xbox.
Excerpt: Genre: Action Publisher: Beep Industries Developer: Microsoft Release Date: September 23, 2003 Buy 'VOODOO VINCE': Xbox Without a doubt, the platforming genre hasn't exactly flourished on the Xbox.
Summary: It’s only been a year since Microsoft’s first foray into the crowded world of the 3D platformer, Blinx the Time Sweeper, failed to excite game critics or Xbox owners. But with a new developer, and a brand new gimmick, Microsoft is ready to give this genre a second try.
Summary: There is no reason for Microsoft to beat themselves up over Voodoo Vince, it's a great game with only a few noticeable flaws. Any gamer patient enough to work all the way through the game will find themselves experiencing a fun adventure that is the best platformer on the Xbox thus far.
Excerpt: Voodoo Vince is a new platformer from Microsoft that hasn't receive a lot of press. In fact, even during our tour of the Xbox booth at E3, Microsoft did not mention this title to us. When I first got my hands on Voodoo Vince, I wasn't sure what to expect.
