Freaky Flyers – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Comic Mischief, Mild Violence, Suggestive Themes

Freaky Flyers – Review

From the beginning, gamers have longed to kart race. Well, maybe that's not entirely true, but the racing genre, and especially "kart racers" have made up a consistent chunk of gaming libraries since Atari (the original one, not the new, fakey one) burst onto the scene. A kart racer is probably best described as a racing game that's less concerned with simulation as it is with allowing colorful, easily identifiable characters to joust with each other while whipping in circles around fantastical landscapes.

MechAssault – Second Opinion

Thom and I are basically on the same wavelength about MechAssault, though I daresay I squeezed a little more enjoyment out of it than he did.

Silent Line: Armored Core – Review

Publisher Agetec may want to get away from the "same-old, same-old" reviews the Armored Core series usually receives, but it's going to take more than a little switcheroo in the title to get the job done. Silent Line is the seventh entry in developer Fromsoft's long-running cult series, but there's really very little to differentiate it from the others previously released. This can be viewed as either a good or bad thing depending on your experience with (and love of) the games, but as a seasoned veteran of all seven, I'm more than ready for this franchise to receive a complete and total overhaul.

Silent Line: Armored Core

Game Description: Silent Line: Armored Core starts from where its predecessor left off. A future Earth that has seen the collapse of the machine controlled society and the return of humans to the surface of the planet. You are once again to become a Raven, a mercenary hired by the government to break through the silent line and discover the truth behind the enigma., Expansion to Armored Core 3, with several new enhancements over the previous game; the most compelling of which is the long-awaited analog control.

MechAssault

Game Description: You are a 40-foot tall walking tank known as a BattleMech. MechAssault is a 3rd-person action or shooter, where the environments are your weapons.

MechAssault – Review

A game like MechAssault poses an interesting problem in terms of how it should be reviewed. The problem revolves around the dual nature of the game. MechAssault is a transition point in terms of console gaming, and it's a transition between a mainly single-player existence and the fairly recent addition of multiplayer action via an online connection. PC games have been forcing critics to deal with this question for quite a while, but this is a fairly new experience for console games. The question becomes what balance is given to the two experiences, and whether one or the other goes further in influencing the direction of the review. I've come to the conclusion that I can't worry too much about the balance between the two different modes of play and just try and talk about what makes up the nature of each and how that reflects on the game as a whole.

Battle Engine Aquila

Game Description: Take charge of the ultimate war machine: the Battle Engine. Whether in walking or flying mode, you will have access to an array of destructive weapons and receive constant direction from base command. Feel the thrill of immediate, frenetic action as you engage in conflict from a first-person perspective and immerse yourself in lush, expansive environments lit up by massive raging battles.

Strategy comes to the fore as you sniff out the opposition’s weaknesses and deliver crippling blows with the most feared weapon on the battlefield.
