Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark

High-Def Digest
1 July 2014
  • Summary: To try and make any semblance of the 'Transformers' storyline in the grand scheme of things, is a futile task. Years of cartoons, comics, games and live-action films have rendered the franchise a very messy place.

Magrunner: Dark Pulse

Total Xbox
16 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Bad is a relative term, and atmospheric first-person puzzle games are like pizza; even when they’re bad, they’re still good. On its own, Magrunner: Dark Pulse is full of brain-bending puzzles and interesting story elements.
  • Pros: + You’ll enjoy (and feel challenged by) most of the polarity-based puzzles., + Haunting. enjoyable soundtrack, decent world design.
  • Cons: - Plot is overstuffed and far too dramatic; too derivative of previous first-person puzzlers., ? You know who the real monster is? Whoever made the mirror and moat puzzles.

  • Summary: Magrunner: Dark Pulse’s direct point of comparison is Portal. In fact, those games share so much DNA you could call them cousins. Anyone who has spent time with Portal will immediately recognize what Magrunner: Dark Pulse is going for.

The Music of the Night Is Off-key

26 October 2013
  • Conclusion: I'm sucking his blood from a foot away? Is that a power? No, just bad graphics.
  • Pros: Seeing that 90s-style goth club vamps are alive and well.
  • Cons: The embarrassingly awful final boss fight.

Perfect Dark – Reviewed (360)

7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: We at Mature-gaming.com appreciate the finer things in life at our age.  Good whisky, a good woman and a good game that doesn’t let you down. We also appreciate the golden era of gaming.  We were there, for the most part.

Stay in the Dark | Dark Review

New Gamer Nation
7 August 2013
  • Conclusion: In the end, Dark falls short of many of the other games in the genre. We appreciate the attempt to stay close to the stealth mechanics that made the genre famous, but there are too many major game elements that fail to impress.
  • Pros: +Character Development
  • Cons: -Broken AI, -Short, Uninspired Story

  • Conclusion: As much as I’d like to describe this game as ‘challenging’ I really can’t, in all good conscience do that, because I’d rather use the word ‘frustrating’. Not just because the game’s technologically underdone and has dumb AI, but because of the monotonous gameplay.
  • Pros: I guess there are a few cool vampire abilities you can use;
  • Cons: An appalling mistake of a game.

  • Excerpt: We wouldn’t mind seeing a boom in the largely unexplored “vampire stealth” genre — as long as it doesn’t include more games like Dark . Centered on an amnesiac vampire (sigh) named Eric Bane ( sigh ), Dark sends you on a quest through a modern vampire underworld to confront and destroy the city’s...
  • Pros: + Cool art style and memorable level design; powers can be fun to unlock and play with.
  • Cons: - Bare-bones stealth action feels rote and confining; enemy A.I. is terrible in strange ways., ? Do folks today even know what a PDA is?
