Geometry Wars – Nintendo DS Game Review

October 25, 2016

Gameplay: 8.5/10 – Geometry Wars has 2 main control schemes a touch screen shooting mechanic (Which I personally feel was just added to the DS because they could add it.)

But other then that fact. I think it is probably the worst possible option in the game overall. The other option is using the the face buttons to control in which direction you are firing your weapon (It looks just like a bunch of dots. Being fired off in rapid bursts.)

This game is as basic as you can get a game. Without going in a time machine and picking back up the old Atari.

You control a very basic C or V shaped space craft (Depending how you look at it). Your goal is to kill everything in site and not get killed your self by other space ships and other oddly shaped geometrical shapes. I guess that is why they called it Geometry Wars.

There are upgrades you can level up and buy and there are levels to unlock with your “GEOMS” or currency in the game.

Your weapons and upgrades also work on an XP based system. So while playing a mission you get a certain amount of XP. Based on how well you do. And at the end of the level you will see a screen displaying how well you did XP wise. After receiving  a certain amount of XP . Whatever weapon or advantage you choose at the the start of your mission. Will gain a level. And if you keep on using the same one you can easily max 1 or 2 quite quickly. If you so desire.

Learning Curve: Very Easy – Insanely difficulty – Geometry Wars is not the most balanced game I have played. There are indeed planets that you can unlock quite awhile into the game that are WAY easier then. Some of the first few planets you unlock.

This is both a positive and negative aspect to me. The main reason is I would expect easier level in the first few planets you play. Not the very last few planets. So your gonna run into a mis-mash of easy to insanely difficult missions. Even within the main planet sub-sets. Just because you are  playing say the 3rd planet. Does not mean your gonna get gold on your first goal. Heck you may not ever get that gold.

It will all depend on the number of lives you have and the number of bombs you are giving. There is for sure some need of skill and learning in this game. If you have a level where you need protection you the defend advantage. If you need to be on the offensive or want more points. You may want to use the Attack advantage.

It all comes down to how you want to play it.

Graphics: 5/10 – It is very bland and there are only a few very basic colours. But that is not a knock against Geometry Wars. That is sort of the point of the whole retro feel. So this is by no means the best looking DS game.

Multiplayer: N/A – There is a multiplayer option. But I don’t have anyone to play with nor do I have a Wii.

Lasting Appeal: 8.5/10This game is best played in short bursts. But there will be times were you will want to play a level or complete a planet or score a gold medal. And you will keep on playing till your fingers bleed or your eyes pop out.

The Whole Package: 8.5/10 – I have to say Geometry Wars  surprised the heck out of me. I thought it was just a lame gag. But it really has a lot to it. There are so many layers you can get into. Weather you go for medals or you you want to amass a lot of “GEOMS”  to unlock all the planets and all the upgrades. Or you can always beat your last score or try to get gold on all the levels.

I would say there are limitless possibilities but that woudl be a lie. But what Geometry Wars  has is plenty of gaming hours and plenty of bang for your buck.

Overall rating for Geometry Wars is a 8/10 – If you like your games super simple. But with a lot of layers that you can control yourself. This game will have you hooked quick. Then it is only a few mission till you will decide what direction you want to go and how you will want to play it.

Are you the type of person always after a better score ?

Are you the type of person who wants to unlock everything ?

Do you like simply multiplayer games ?

Are you the type of person who wants to brag about getting all the gold medals ?

Or are you the person who is just happy with playing till you get stuck ? or do you want to buy your way to the next planet or level ?


Well this game has all the above choices and they are indeed yours to make.

Dante’s Inferno: Trials of St. Lucia – PS3 DLC Review

October 24, 2016

Main Game: Dante’s Inferno

DLC Name: Trials of St. Lucia

DLC Cost: $4.99 USD/CAD

Completion Time: Potentially endless

DLC Content: Dante’s Inferno: Trials of St. Lucia is a major update for the hit action game Dante’s Inferno. Play solo or online co-op with St. Lucia (a new playable character!) or Dante to defeat combat Trials for medals and leaderboard scores. Create new custom battles that you can share online with the Editor!

Overall Rating : 6/10 – Now this DLC I admit is interesting idea becuase you get a new playable character St. Lucia. Which would of been way better if she was playable in the main game. But instead she is trapped in a PVP battles arena.  Which is fine if you are into that. But I am not.

This DLC adds a more vamped up version of Gates Of Hell Mode. But that is pretty much it. I have to admit I was very into it for ohh maybe 3 days. Then I lost interest becuase it gets so repetitive and there is only so much juice you can squeezes out of this very limited DLC.

So I feel even hardcore fans like myself. Should take pause and really think . Do I want to spend $9.99 on a non-game related extension that will on really be interesting if you are into the whole leader boards and competitions and cred that comes with winning the harder trials.

Dante’s Inferno: Dark Forest – PS3 DLC Review

October 24, 2016

Main Game: Dante’s Inferno

DLC Name: Dark Forest

DLC Cost: Free For PS3 Version Only (Must Be Brand New)

Completion Time: It took me many many hours to complete. Now that I say that. The main reason was only because I am terrible at figuring out puzzles. My mate figured it out in maybe 30min 45mins.

DLC Content: This is a prequel to the game that picks up after the opening cutscene in Dante’s Inferno where our hero has just finished sewing that awesome cross into his chest. There’s no new cutscene to introduce this, it just starts with Dante at the fire and the new enemy known as the forest siren popping up to start some crap. This woman – a bit overweight and dressed in a white outfit with some black stuff on it – looks a lot like the Witch from Left 4 Dead and moans all sensually before running her hands over her body.

Overall Rating : 5.5/10 – This DLC is terrible and I am so happy I did not have to pay for it. It does not even make any sense when compared to the rest of Dante’s Inferno. This DLC would of made way more sense if it was a first look or a DEMO. Other then that it is pointless confusing and well total BS.

Dante’s Inferno (Divine Edition) – PS3 Game Review

October 24, 2016

Genra: Action

About This Game:  In Dante’s Inferno, players assume the role of Dante as he travels on an epic descent through Dante Alighieri’s nine circles of Hell – limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, anger, heresy, violence, fraud and treachery. Players assume the role of Dante, who descends into Hell after returning home to find his beloved Beatrice murdered, with Lucifer seducing her soul into the underworld. His mission is to save Beatrice, but he soon realizes he is also in Hell to face his own demons and ultimately to redeem himself.To take down the demons of Hell, Dante is outfitted with two primary weapons: the Scythe he takes from Death and the Holy Cross given to him by Beatrice, which has spiritual powers that will help Dante collect souls and spells from the creatures he defeats on his journey. The game also features a deep upgrade system so gamers can customize their abilities to their specific gameplay style. Each circle showcases its own distinct look, with demons, monsters, damned and geography that are crafted straight from the poem’s vivid descriptions.

Gameplay: 7/10 – This game has so many glitches and very irritating puzzles. That seem to be there just to stall your advanced in stead of having any real value in the game.

Learning Curve : Easy – Medium difficulty – There are control issues and there are a lot of strange physics in the game. Dropping to your death,  falling off ledges or getting killed by some environmental factor is common place.

Graphics/Sound: 8/10 – The combinations of the amazing visuals and the very epic feeling instrumental music. Makes a great over all feel of a truly epic game.

Lasting Appeal: 6.5/10 – This game will take you under 5 hours to beat at first. Then maybe an 1 and 45 min to beat the second time. My big issues is I unlocked all the extras while playing on easy. So I had really no reason to want to replay it again.  There is the “Gates Of Hell” but it is very limited and not at all randomized.

The Whole Package: 7.5/10 – I loved this game even when it was way shorter then I expected. And I lost even more love for this game after playing G-d of War 1, 2 and 3 for the first time.

Overall rating  7.5/10 – This game has really fast load times. Very cool weapons and a difficulty level that increases after each zone

Till My Next PS3 Game review….
