Excerpt: Over recent years, the cutesy creature genre (which is to say of the platformer variety) has largely become more grounded and more shooty. Ratchet and Clank, Jak, as well as Spyro’s newest are just a few examples of this.
Excerpt: Your first experience with NHL 2K10 may not be spectacular – my own certainly wasn’t. Initially, the game seemed like a complete rehash. With the exception of being able to invite players to join a game online, the mode lineup, which included the likes of Franchise, Exhibition, Pond Hockey and Mini...
Conclusion: It’s come up before and it’ll come up again, but multiplayer is generally the real test of a sports game, because it is affected less by AI foibles and comes down to true competition and skill. NHL 2K10 does offer a lot of flexibility for the online-gaming component.
Conclusion: No more famous wooden boxes anymore but new features such as Mojo Challenges and changing clothes to have powers of creatures, makes its fun to play. Can be played co-operatively but not online.
Conclusion: The thing is, the times where you are able to walk through reasonably simply are fun. Not great fun, but good unremarkable fun – the kind of game that a reviewer might recommend as a good Christmas stocking filler, or something.
Conclusion: I thought Crash of the Titans was an overall enjoyable game. It gets a bit tedious down the stretch because each episode is so very similar to the previous one, but the campaign ends just as the adventure wears out its welcome.
Conclusion: In the audio department, the game uses a mixture
of symphonies and instrumental pop, which fit
the game's theme really well. The sound effects
are generally subtle but they are enough to
promote the kind of magical charm to keep up
with your adventure.
