We liked the original No More Heroes when it came out on the Wii way back in the dusky year of 2008 because it was crazy in a way that no Western game could pull off. That's not a surprise to anyone familiar with Suda51 (real name: Goichi Suda), the ingeniously deranged designer of such past favorites as Killer7 and the more recent Shadows of the Damned. Since it's entirely possible you're a PS3 owner but not necessarily a Wii owner, you might not be entirely familiar with No More Heroes. Do you like...
Holy crap, this is the TWELFTH Nobunaga's Ambition, and yet not a whole lot has really changed since the old NES days. Whether that's a good or bad thing depends on how much you fervently love the series. And with a series as focused on a specific audience as this is, you either maniacally tent your fingers at the prospect of another entry, or their brain wanders away at “Nobu-”
Before we go any further into this review, please answer the following questions: Do you enjoy unit- and micromanagement-heavy, PC-style realtime strategy games? Would you prefer a realistic, historical setting over the usual sci-fi and fantasy establishments common to the genre? Do you get excited at the thought of sifting through hundreds of non-English terms, place names, and character names? If you answered “no” to any of the
Like Linger in Shadows and Flower before it, Noby Noby Boy is a PSN game without missions, objectives, enemies – and some might say a point or a purpose. You’re either going to view it as one of the most addictive titles you’ll play all year, or a waste of money.
There are no prizes for guessing that with a name like Nostalgia, this RPG harks back to the halcyon days when a party of four adventurers turn-based-battled their way through dungeons, earning XP from fights to level up and gain new skills, visiting stores in towns to acquire new kit and… Hold on a minute – nostalgia?
Nostradamus predicted a fair few things in his time. The Great Fire of London, Napoleon’s empire and the rise of the Third Reich. What he probably didn’t predict was that he would be commemorated in a point-and-click adventure for the PC.
With both Nintendo and Sony turning up the wick in regards to downloadable game content, Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade has been busily pumping out original content in the weeks leading up to the holiday. Novadrome is the third original title in as many weeks.
The best way to describe Novadrome is Twisted Metal minus any bit of personality or style. This is a fairly straight-forward vehicular combat game that doesn't get too caught up in story or character, instead focusing mainly on the
Few things resemble real-life videogames quite like paintballing: 1) You dress like a member of Half-Life’s Combine; 2) It’s the only time hiding in ferns is acceptable; and 3) You actually get to shoot real living humans. And they bleed. Albeit in blue.
If blood-drenched first-person shooters are gun porn, then NRA Gun Club is an after-school special. While its lineup of firearms runs to over 100 different pistols, shotguns, and rifles, it contents itself with presenting nothing more than the mundane realities of modern-day gun ownership.
The entirety of NRA Gun Club revolves around shooting target objects, whether they're traditional scoring sheets, clay pigeons, circular bits of metal, beer cans, bottles, or a dart board. The only course
The advent of Trash Panic has raised our expectations of what a puzzle game should be like, and while Numblast is a decent brain-teaser with room to develop tactics, it offers nothing new to help maintain our interest.
