We’re careening at breakneck speed through downtown San Francisco, and things are getting a bit hairy. At the moment, we’re in the driver’s seat of a ZR1 Corvette, in hot pursuit of a criminal on the loose. Traffic is heavy and pedestrians are everywhere, which makes this high-speed chase pretty complicated. Despite our best efforts to weave through oncoming vehicles at 105 mph, we smash headfirst into a fire truck, sending glass and metal flying across the boulevard. Normally, our hopes would be dashed, and we’d simply hit the “reset” button and give it another go. Instead, though, we shift immediately into a Google Earth-style view of the entire Bay Area, spotting our prey moving on the map. The press of a button zips out of our mangled wreck and into an eighteen wheeler about 250 feet in front of our target. Quickly steering hard right, a massive barrier now blocks most of the street in front of our enemy. In another instant, we teleport out of the rig into a sweet Audi S5 Coupe trailing our baffled combatant, and crash into him a moment after he hits the truck head-on. Bad guy vanquished, mission accomplished...
We expect puzzle games to challenge your brain, but at least initially, Droplitz may also test something else: your patience. While rotating dials to let drops of water flow from one area to the next is a simple enough premise -- sort of like Hexic meets the hacking mini-game from BioShock -- we kept finding ourselves running out of droplets within minutes, and not nearly approaching the high scores needed to unlock later modes.
Is DuckTales Remastered a faithful makeover, or does will it sour your trip down memory lane? Find out in our review...
Duke is a relic of a bygone age – a parody of eighties action heroes, powered by mid-nineties technology, and a game that’s aged harder and uglier than even Doom. It’s a fine port, though. The new Live Arcade functions are a great demonstration of just how an old game should be brought to XBLA.
The impossible has happened: After 14 years in development hell, Duke Nukem Forever is a reality. Long synonymous with endless delays and empty promises, this butt of countless internet jokes is finally, undeniably here. Whether that’s a good thing is another matter entirely...
Dungeon Defenders adds a new twist to tower defense with a mishmash of RPG, action, and tower defense gameplay elements making for a worthwhile investment from the Xbox Live Marketplace. There is plenty of content to keep players busy – whether it be working their way through the campaign and tackling challenges. It’s not with its setbacks, though, with the less-than-exciting combat system and loot that feels more like a chore than a reward system...
There are very few instances where it’s perfectly acceptable to fall asleep in the middle of playing a videogame. 24 hour marathons come to mind, as does forced prison torture. Though you may not see it, the commonality between those two examples is that the player has a greater goal in mind (making it to the finish and not getting swatted, respectively). Now, imagine you are playing...
Dust: An Elysian Tail, the 2D action RPG with an all-animal cast, closes out this year's Summer of Arcade on Xbox. Even if it wouldn't normally seem like your thing, we highly recommend you check it out...
