Excerpt: Zeno Clash Ultimate Edition review Game Over Online - http://www.game-over.com Zeno Clash is a unique game with its one-two punch combat, original story and imaginatively realized world. It’s like entering the dream world of Tim Burton, with a melee heavy combat system that’s reminiscent, but much deeper than games like Condemned. But is this ultimate edition worth your hard-earned cash? Find out in my review of Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition.
Summary: Ever wonder what it was like to kill your asexual parent and be at war with hundreds of siblings? Welcome to Zeno Clash , a game where your countless brothers and sisters want to rip you apart. Zeno Clash is a port of a year-old PC game, and publisher Atlus bundled it with some extras under a new Ultimate Edition banner.
Excerpt: When I first heard of Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition, I had no idea what it was. After playing the game however, well, I still have no idea what it is. I have never been so utterly freaked out by a title that isn't considered a "horror" game. Still, if you can get past all of the crazy characters, tripped out environments and the somewhat nausea-inducing fighting system, you are in for a pretty good experience.
Conclusion: Zeno Clash is an oddity that relishes in the fact that it is totally un-mainstream; its plot is almost purposely obtuse but this does not prevent the game being a consistently intriguing, original, strange and haunting experience with well crafted mechanics and excellent production values.
Excerpt: Created by Chilean developer ACE Team and running on Valve's Source Engine, Zeno Clash is, without a shadow of a doubt, the strangest game I have ever played. Literally. Absolute strangest. I brought in my harddrive to show my coworkers how strange it was, and after seeing it, they still didn't get it. There's not a single element of the game that actually feels... normal. Nothing. This isn't meant to deter anyone from playing it, however.
Conclusion: Zeno Clash is on par with a night of heavy drinking at Jabba's palace. The next day you're not exactly sure who you are, what just happened, or how much of what you think transpired actually occurred, but you're fairly certain everyone there actually did want to kill you, and your attempts to kick everyone else's ass first was completely justified.
