XBLA Review - Deadlight

Posted August 16th 2012 by Anthony DiPalma.

With the slew of cookie-cutter zombie shooters out there, it's hard to tell which undead invasion is worth caring about. The survival-horror genre has seen better days, as modern day apocalyptic blitzkriegs tend to focus more on action, making it far too easy for players to blast their way through a horde of bloodthirsty freaks. Deadlight, however, is an entirely different animal. This Arcade title breaks the seemingly ongoing tradition of bumbling about in a methodical stroll through Drab-town by returning to the genre's roots, as well as introducing much needed new elements along the way.

XBLA REVIEW: Shadow Complex

Posted August 23rd 2009 by Will Davey.

Shadow Complex

Brought to you by Chair Entertainment and Epic Games, Shadow Complex is a modern take on the "Metroidvania" style of gameplay that has been most recently showcased in the Castlevania games on the Nintendo DS. You'll be traversing a 2D plane, and as you go through the adventure you'll find upgrades that will let you go to previously unreachable areas. It doesn't sound nearly as fun using a description to describe the genre, but it really is an incredible game.

XBLA REVIEW: Trials HD

Posted August 13th 2009 by Will Davey.

Trials HD

In the past, the Trials games and I had a bit of a love/hate relationship. I loved how simple and addictive the gameplay was - it had the uncanny ability to make me want "just one more go" when I'd repeatedly miss a jump. It was also fun to just completely ignore the course and see how many flips you could do off of various ramps, only to see your rider crash into the ground with delightful ragdoll physics. That said, I hated how difficult they got and how bad I was at more difficult levels. Fast-forward to 2009 and the Trials series is back, this time on the Xbox Live Arcade with Trials HD. I was really intrigued to see how far the game had come along since its flash game beginnings, so I loaded up the game and jumped right in.
