True achievements

  • Conclusion: Achievements are of a varied type ranging from the standard story based achievements to the more obscure and time consuming varieties. The bulk of the gamerscore is earned by completing the 4 endings.

  • Pros: Walking from third-person combat into a text adventure game.

4 September 2010
  • Excerpt: You can never be sure exactly what you are in for with a Square Enix game. They will usually be epic RPGs with sumptuous graphics, evocative soundtracks and spiky haired angst-ridden emo teenagers playing with swords and magic without proper adult supervision.

Heavy Weapon

Square-Go
4 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Heavy Weapon is an old school side-scrolling shooter which has been bought into the present kicking and screaming; on one hand we have crisp HD graphics but also a game which retains all the gameplay mechanics of games now long gone, be them good and bad.
