Title: Fuuuu, Halloween Game Review Troubles
Posted: October 26, 2012 (05:53 PM)
So I have one "horror"-themed game left to review that I'll be submitting the last day of October, but I keep running into problems. The game I originally intended to do was Majora's Mask, since, you know, the theme of the moon crashing and the various masks worn. But I didn't want to rush through the game for the sake of a review, so I went for something else.

That's when I decided on PS1's Reloaded, sequel to Loaded. I did this purely on the notion of the crazy character designs and ultra violence, plus I wanted to review the sequel. However, I ran into two problems, the first being that the game really sucks, and that's an amazing accomplishment considering the first game wasn't hot in the first place. The second issue came as I made it halfway through Reloaded: my PlayStation controller's d-pad crapped out. Keep in mind, this game was published before Sony released the analog controller.

So now I'm in this situation of having to search for a last minute replacement, and I have one particular game in mind... but I won't name it. If that somehow goes to crap, too, I guess it's off to Xbox Live Arcade games. Hopefully there's a suitable one I can find.

How many punches to the gut does it take to get to the center of a decent Double Dragon 1 game?

Not even M2's efforts could salvage this game.

Unfortunately, when my tour with Fever was done, I left with a feeling of disdain, that and a lingering question that stuck with me for months: how does the DS predecessor play?

Never mind the fact that the box cover, depicting a real hand holding the game card, confused the ever-loving out of me, the actual experience of playing it was like battling a haunted house that's having a nervous breakdown.

As typical as it may be in approach, Home pulls off terrorizing the player within those 40 or so minutes with finesse that a lot of other horror games, usually of the high budget-variety, fail to do in their entirety.

For an adventure-style title, there's not very much adventuring to do, because the building is so small that the mansion from Resident Evil 1 seems like a castle in comparison.

I was immediately fascinated by the overhead, SNES-style, 2D graphics, its lush lakes, meadows, and cutesy characters reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda and the like. Though, on closer inspection, I did find it amusing that the backgrounds consist of sprites taken or edited from a RPG Maker tileset.
