Excerpt: Capcom is known for their difficult games. They ingeniously publish products that drive many gamers insane. Hardcore gamers can rejoice that World Gone Sour is another game that has its hair pulling moments. In other words, expect to make mistakes in World Gone Sour - repeatedly.
Summary: I have to admit, whenever I come across a game that has a corporate tie in (Burger King, Yaris, Doritos, etc.) I have decidedly low expectations for it. Knowing that going in, I decided to take on the challenge of , which is essentially one big advertisement for the Sour Patch Kids candy.
Conclusion: Perhaps it's best to consider World Gone Sour in comparison to the product that inspires it. At five bucks, it's only slightly more expensive than a bag of Sour Patch Kids at the local movie theater, and with a running time of around five hours, it'll probably last longer, too.
Pros: Memorable narration by Creed Bratton, Fun local cooperative mode, Competitive leaderboards for each level.
Cons: Finicky double jumps and wall climbs, Long loading times, Monotonous musical score.
Summary: With an asking price of only five dollars, World Gone Sour is a solid purchase, containing a quirky premise and interesting gameplay mechanics. Fans of unforgiving old-school platformers will want to check this one out, especially since it’s perfectly priced.
Excerpt: IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve seen games with product placement. IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve also seen games that were full-on commercials. There hasnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t ever really been one of the latter that was considered a good game. Then, along comes World Gone Sour...
Pros: + Fun co-op game play, + Cheap price, + Funny dialog, + Nice environments
Conclusion: It's not the best platformer ever made and, considering the fantastic games on the marketplace, doesn't even break the top 10. But if you're just looking for a few hours of light entertainment for a low cost and want to hear some jokes as you go, this game will fit the bill perfectly.
Summary: 'Stir of Echoes' is one of those "almost there" thrillers. It has an intriguing premise, solid acting and a few chills, but ultimately is just not that memorable. Same goes for this Blu-ray release.
