Review Quickies

God of War III (PS3)
+ amazing visuals and audio
+ lots of combat variety
– very similar to every other GoW
– epic scale isn’t as impressive now that I’m used to it

RATING: 5 out of 5 / 8.5 out of 10

Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict (XB)
+ smooth framerate
+ usual mix of good weapons you’d expect from an Unreal game
– melee combat is dull and somewhat ineffective
– finishing moves are completely impractical and hard to pull off

RATING: 4 out of 5 / 7.0 out of 10

Mamoru-kun wa Norowarete Shimatta!: Meikai Katsugeki Wide-han (PS3)
+ interesting mix of Ikari/Mercs ground-based gameplay w/ shmup bullet patterns & sensibilities
+ create a team of three different characters w/ seven total to choose from
– not very many stages to play
– scoring system doesn’t have much depth

RATING: 4 out of 5 / 8.0 out of 10

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance (GBA)
+ another fantastic SotN-esque Castlevania game
+ music is a stranger-than-usual mix, but works nonetheless
– far too many inaccessible areas can lead to a lot of aimless wandering
– difficulty is too easy

RATING: 5 out of 5 / 8.5 out of 10
