““Hey Barry, you should check this game out, it’s kind of like Revengeance” – that was what drew me into buying and playing Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae. Now, I *bleep*ing loved Revengeance! It was a spectacle fighter that really showed off some real flashy fights, complete with excellently choreographed fights and loads of full on action packed set pieces while still being challenging to beat. Its bosses were especially on point! So when I checked this out thinking that it’d be Revengeance if Raiden was a Japanese schoolgirl instead of a cyborg ninja, I figured that it’d be a pretty fun game. What I got was a game that was enjoyable, but fell short in so many small areas that it doesn’t hit the mark. What makes the game even remotely relevant – nevermind good – is that it’s got some pretty sweet fighting mechanics. You can carve up enemies, counter and dodge attacks on a whim unless you’re in the middle of pulling off some huge attack. The counterattack takes a while to get the timing down for, but it’s worth...”
Valdis Story: Abyssal City

7.0

“Disappointment, thy name is Valdis Story: Abyssal City. Under normal circumstances, disappointment is the result of a game failing to live up to any pre-conceived expectations – be they a result of hype or overly positive reviews. However, this game is a much worse variant of a disappointment; the kind that walks and talks like a fantastic game, but performs like a borderline good game that has some seriously rough edges. Said rough edges turn what should be an excellent Metroidvania into one that’s bafflingly frustrating to play with all things considered. With a combat engine that takes the typical spectacle fighting formula, makes it a tad more deliberately paced and gives it a 1:1 translation to a sidescrolling format while having it take place within some well laid out environments, the gameplay was looking to be impressive. An epic story rich with interesting lore and top notch presentation only made things better. But the more you play it, the more you wish that the game’s rough patches and poor...”

“Requiem: Avenging Angel is a game that’s like Half Life but with more action, less polish and a more religious overtone. Not necessarily one where we’re condemning the heathens to an eternity of horrible pain; more the one where you’re a fallen angel trying to right the wrongs committed by a demon named Lilith, with said wrongs being that she’s corrupted all life on earth to basically want to kill each other so that she can bring about Armageddon. If you just judged it by the interactions you and/or the characters have with one another, the story just gives you an excuse to go kill shit; a lot of these moments boil down to “yeah shit’s *bleep*ed dude, go kill some guys”, although it does expand on it a bit towards the end. It’s nothing special, but it’s enough to keep you going at least. Where it does work is in the overall atmosphere – you got this spaceship full of gun toting demons, this city that’s under totalitarian rule, and a hellish realm where you know shit’s about to go down. In particular with...”
Amazing Princess Sarah

5.5

Average: 5.5
Comments: None
“Amazing Princess Sarah’s central gimmick is the ability to pick up objects and downed enemies from the ground and throw them at whoever’s coming your way in order to defend yourself. This becomes a big deal for two reasons. 1) Sarah’s normal attack doesn’t do a lot of damage. It’s a dinky little sword that deals dinky little damage. It’s not exactly swift, either. Since it handles poorly, has next to no range and deals bugger all damage, it’s useless. 2) Throwing things at enemies deals a lot of damage and covers a lot of ground. There’s a lot of stuff to throw, too. It especially helps that you can also throw enemies that have been killed. What’s especially cool is that most enemies have different effects upon being thrown. Whether they rain arrows or spit fire in both directions, you can unleash hell onto many an unsuspecting enemy if you throw the right dead one at them. I mean, some of them don’t do anything special, but they deal more damage than your sword does, so at least that’s still useful....”
Hyperdimension Neptunia­ U: Action Unleashed

9.5

Average: 9.5
Comments: None
“The Hyperdimension Neptunia games have had a bit of a rocky history when it comes to port quality on PC. I've been fortunate enough to have a rig that has handled the series with no serious problems and have eagerly been awaiting new entries in the series, so it was with great pleasure that this action based spinoff made its way to PC, but with a catch - the publisher noted that AMD based computers may not work properly with it. I took the gamble, relying on the Steam refund process if it came true, and I am pleased to tell you that I have experienced no issues running the game. However, it's important to stress these potential compatibility issues right away even moreso than past Neptunia games as the impression is that there will be no support if problems relate to the type of hardware used. I think it is worth giving it a try though because what we get is an action game that may not be all that tactical but is a fun way to spend time bashing many grunts and the odd boss up at once with flashy...”
FTL: Faster Than Light

8.5

Average: 8.5
Comments: None
“FTL: Faster Than Light (henceforth just FTL) is a rouge-like game set in space. You man a lone ship trying to outrun the rebel fleet while trying to make it back to command to deliver important information. On your way, you must travel through 8 sectors, each with their own challenges. You must manage your ship's power, crew, and resources if you are to survive this feat. Like most rogue-likes, this game has an ever changing atmosphere every time you play it. Each game is going to be different. You may start off with the same ship, but your encounters will always change. That said, when you die, you're dead. It is game over. This is not a new concept in games like this, but to some it could be off-putting. To me, I think it adds a fantastic feel to the game. It makes me think that I'm the captain and I must make good choices in order to complete my quest. Of course it isn't just about managing resources, but surviving the harsh reaches of space. Each sector has a type to it whether it is a friendly...”
Crime Secrets: Crimson Lily

8.5

Average: 8.5
Comments: None
“It's pretty rare to see two Artifex Mundi in the upcoming list and to see a game released two weeks before the Steam scheduled one. However, I was waiting for Crime Secrets as it was previewed on All About Casual Game. And you're used to me being a huge fan of Artifex Mundi's catalogue, so I'm buying these games pretty quickly, as the studio is also doing interesting discounts. However, I was more eager to try this game than waiting for the other (Demon Hunters 2 is suffering from the fact that the first game was one of the worst translated games in my language, only topped by Princess Isabella: Rise of an Heir when it was re-released by Artifex Mundi). Besides, Artifex Mundi is always including "easy" achievements and trading cards. In Crime Secrets, you're a private investigator, ready for snowy vacations, when you discover a sheriff being frozen to death at the gate of your hotel, when you just saw him a few minutes ago very much alive. Given the fact that the police will not come before a lot of...”
Drawn: Dark Flight

9.0

Average: 9.0
Comments: None
“I've purchased both versions of Dark Flight, thinking that one was indeed Dark Flight and the other the third game in the trilogy. Silly me, eh? But as it was discounted, I'm not going to hold a grudge against myself. I'm relieved to see that I didn't do the same mistake when adding the games here on Neoseeker, else, I would have been forced to ask Wolfwood to remove wrong screenshots. I've played the standard edition, it's time to review it. Drawn: Dark Flight is the sequel of The Painted Tower. After Iris managed to escape the evil tyrant through her magical book, you're asked by Franklin to ignite the three light beacons that will destroy the darkness and allow Iris to reclaim her throne as she's the heiress. It's time to find a passage that will lead to the town and to explore it. However, the evil tyrant and the sorcerer are tracking you down... The game use drawings that can bring items to "life" (materialize in the world) and painting as portals to other worlds. The main idea is to use this...”

“Yeah, that's kind of weird. I don't think they quite polished it enough. If nothing else, your review of this is making me want to play Golden Axe again.”

“yeah, serious sam 3's battlefields weren't quite as open or generally well laid out as the original's was. plus the new enemies were not only kinda generic, but they also didn't fit into the mold as well as they should've - like there's no synergy between them and the old enemies, and they don't have the nuance that the old ones did either. i think serious sam 3's still a good game, but it did seem to make a few amateur mistakes trying to recapture that magic and putting it into a slightly more...”
