Review Quickies Vol. 2

Dissidia: Final Fantasy (PSP)
+ very nice graphics
+ gameplay is simple and flashy, yet satisfying enough to see you through dozens of hours
+ tons of content to play through, customize, and unlock
– story involves a lot of talking, but nothing of substance

RATING: 4 out of 5 / 8.0 out of 10

Magic: the Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers (PS3)
+ gameplay is accurate and faithful to the card game on which it is based
+ easy to use interface
– A.I. on highest difficulty is a joke for veteran Magic players
– customization of decks is not possible except adding cards above the 60 minimum

RATING: 2 out of 5 / 4.5 out of 10

Heavenly Sword (PS3)
+ graphics still look good today
+ fantastic performances by the whole cast, especially Andy Serkis as King Bohan (my favorite scene)
+ unique blend of offensive and defensive combat
+ “aftertouch” mechanic worked much better than expected
– counters can be difficult to time correctly

RATING: 5 out of 5 / 8.5 out of 10
