3 was a much weaker game than 2. It wasn't led by Ancel, and most of its puzzles were a case of "here's a fist powerup, here's something to use it on, congrats now proceed to the next mini-area."

Sonic Generations Review

Mr_Bogus

7 years ago

The frame rate's the biggest turn-off for me. Sonic Colours was a great game, and even tho it would've been amazing at 60, at least the solid 30 at least kept it perfectly playable.

This is an inconsistent 30, and I regularly find myself smacking into stuff because i can't make out if they're eg. collectibles or spikes when it comes onscreen.

The environment artists must also be really upset to see their beautiful scenery flickering by in such a jerky way.

The War of the Worlds Review

Mr_Bogus

7 years ago

Absolutely loved every minute of the demo. I managed to hold myself back from pressing the "Unlock full game now" button.

Today, I'm going to go home and unlock the full game.
And play it.
And enjoy it.
In spite of all these pathetic "duuuh it's too hard I died and had to retry too many times 2/10 trolololo" reviews that are appearing.

The game has excellent atmosphere, amazing graphics, no review anywhere has even bothered to even mention the excellent orchestral music by Chris Huelsbeck (composer on Katakis, Turrican, Rogue Squadron/Leader, etc), the totally dead smooth framerate, subtle camera work for extra effects, atmospheric sound when you're inside trains, apartments, warehouses, seeing the other people writhing in agony or crying over loved ones' corpses, the sleek gameplay that literally just throws you straight into the story without even so much as a single intrusive "Press A to jump" popup, the list goes on.

I highly recommend trying it for yourself, before blindly agreeing with the reviews.

Game looks great, but 1500 points is excessive.

My sympathies go to RedLynx - another great Wiiware game set to miss potential sales because Nintendo set the price too high.

It's also tradition for every Monkey Ball game to look graphically worse than its predecessors. Looks like the tradition's continuing.

Saturday Soapbox: Nintendo's creative decline

Mr_Bogus

7 years ago

The whole "they happened to waltz in at the right time" thing - yes, but... They also did a DAMN GOOD JOB of it.

It'll hurt to admit the truth, especially when it means admitting to falling for forcefed brainwashing, but the marketing campaigns for DS and Wii basically won over the audience.

Also, remember how the DS's first year was slow and frustrating, before the DS Lite and Brain Training came out & swept up the market? Can't predict the future but I wouldn't be surprised if the 3DS picks up late this year / early next year, possibly even with a "lite" model, now that they've reduced the price of the original model to help move the stock.

Great article :)

Anyone remember Fire & Ice (platformer on the Amiga)? I once read an interview with Andrew Braybrook from GraftGold about a Mega Drive / Genesis version that was pretty much finished but never published.

I'd love to see that released...Wonder if the cartridge / image still exists?
