Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions – Review

As soon as I started up, I was greeted by all the awe and great feelings I had when I first picked the game up. I remembered every bit of hype that preceded its release and the amount of praise MGS received when its release finally came. VR Missions comes with 300 missions for me to complete and offers a few bonuses, which I'll get into later. All of the missions are fun and some are indeed very clever.

Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions – Second Opinion

Holy Crap! It's amazing what passes for a game these days! Transplant the body of Snake into a puzzle game like Boxxle or Chip's Challenge and you might get some idea of what it is like to play VR Missions.

Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions

Game Description: Everybody’s favorite macho super spy is back for more in what can be thought of as an expansion of Metal Gear Solid. You take Solid Snake through a mind-boggling 300 VR missions, which will call for you to sneak, shoot, and generally do all the stuff that made Metal Gear Solid so much fun. Complete enough missions and you will open up stages like Mystery mode, in which you must solve mysteries; Photographer, where you take snapshots of various characters in the game; or you can just play the game as the elusive Ninja character.

The New Tetris – Consumer Guide

Bottom line, there is no reason to buy this game if you own a previous version of Tetris (or 3 or more like Chi and I do). The New Tetris tries to offer something new with the focus on forming squares, but it could be too much of a departure from the norm for Tetris veterans.

The New Tetris – Review

After all its different incarnations, Nintendo apparently felt Tetris needed a face-lift as much as Leatherface does. The New Tetris, as it's called, is probably the biggest conceptual departure from the original Tetris theme that any "Tetris" game has gotten. Since it's inception, Tetris has been about clearing the most lines and getting the highest numerical score to see who is the best. In The New Tetris, a high score is still desirable, but it is tallied differently; the actual number of lines cleared are the focus and not points given for each, as in the original.

The New Tetris – Second Opinion

Shifting the focus over to building world wonders with lines accrued makes The New Tetris the first Tetris in the franchise to reach 'biblical' proportions. Why 'biblical'? Because the sheer amount of effort it takes to build one of these mammoths made me feel like I actually was a slave in Egypt!

The New Tetris

Game Description: Go beyond all preconceived notions of the mind-boggling puzzle classic, as you take on all-new challenges in fresh environments. The aim is the same: place the falling shapes into lines, leaving as few gaps as possible. Once you complete a line, it disappears, giving you more space in which to operate. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a newcomer to the fabled Tetris series, you’ll appreciate the improved modes of play. With seven innovative environments and all sorts of new options and scoring possibilities, this is truly the next generation of Tetris.
