“The doom and gloom of brutal sci-fi warfare may be a far cry from the bubbly color and cutesy sheen of developer 5th Cell’s most famous franchise, Scribblenauts, yet the studio’s creative touch doesn’t shine as brightly in its new divergent online-only multiplayer shooter — at least not on the surface. Hybrid masks its highly innovative third-person combat with generic factions, standard weapons, and a presentation that’s been cribbed many times before. But underneath all of that lies some of the craziest, most unique multiplayer mayhem I’ve hopped into in a long time.”
“A journey to the seemingly barren red wastes of Mars to recover a missing research probe becomes a fascinating crash-course in the realm of alien botany in Waking Mars. Instead of intense laser battles and intergalactic conflict, Tiger Style Games’ inventive sci-fi adventure uses thought-provoking exploration and creative problem solving to draw you into its story-driven depths.”
“It seems rather fitting that the end of the long-running Star Ocean series would come around full circle to revisit where the series first began–with the degradation of our beloved homeworld and with humanity teetering on the brink of annihilation. As far as prequels go, Star Ocean: The Last Hope gets a lot of things right in terms of gameplay, even if it falters in other areas. PlayStation 3 owners had to wait an extra year to get a crack at saving the galaxy one last time, and while the few extras and tweaks found in the exclusive international edition may seem a meager reward for your patience, they do make it the more enticing version to own.”
“There’s a lot of cool stuff found in WorldShift’s sci-fi fantasy world. Magic and tribalism is married with high-tech warfare in a real-time strategy conquest that should be somewhat satisfying based on its premise alone. But, for everything that truly works about the game, you’ll find something that’ll get under your skin.”
