Student Project: The Odyssey

Here at GameCritics we review all sorts of games. First-person shooters, turn-based strategy, sexy dating sims and more… but one type of title we don’t often cover are student games!
Today we’re making an exception.


Ganryu 2 Review

HIGH Solid, classic-style 2D graphics and catchy tunes.

LOW Brutal difficulty even higher than the original.

WTF The first game I’ve seen where the score resets after losing a life…


Infernax Review

A Hard Day’s Knight

HIGH The secret ending is the work of pure unfettered genius.

LOW Wandering around pointlessly in search of the entrance to Stormheim.

WTF The markedly more realistic approach to certain Castlevania moments.


Trophy Review

Poor Imitations Aren’t Very Flattering

HIGH Finding a weapon power-up that simplified combat a little.

LOW The magnet boss.

WTF This snowblower battle seems like a parody of a bad Mega Man boss.


UnMetal Review

A Joke 34 Years In The Telling

HIGH The compass gag is an all-time great joke.

LOW A key item disappeared from my inventory and I had to restart the level.

WTF Need Choloroform? Just mix a bottle of Chloro and a bottle of Form!
