Quickie Reviews

July 25, 2007

Holy Crap…I’ve been flooded with games. Isn’t this summer? I swear it’s not due to the massive amounts of GOOD games that have been coming out.

Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition (Nintendo Wii)

Rated M for Violence, Language, and some scenes of explody heads! YAY!

Ok, Zombie fans, this is indeed more of the Resident Evil 4 we have all come to know and love. Everything from the Gamecube and PS2 versions is here (mainly, the [enhanced] GC graphics and the PS2 extras) as well as the Wii’s trademark controls. Speaking of controls, they work EXTREMELY well with the game dynamics. I often find myself popping off 7-8 headshots at a time. This makes things so much better. Aiming has always been my beef with this game and the certainly fixed that problem. Also, knife controls have been tied to the controller’s motion sensitivity, making it that much more useful in combat. It’s now much easier to conserve precious ammo by using your handy knife instead. However, this is just an enhanced port, but the $29.99 price tag more than makes up for it.

Drew’s Rating: Go on, buy it, you know you wanna.

The Darkness (Playstation 3, Xbox 360; PS3 version played)

Rated M for Violence, Drugs, Gore, Language, and did I mention GORE?!

So, you’re a mafia hitman. It’s your 21st birthday. You suddenly become the host of a demonic creature called “The Darkness”. This is a really good FPS with deep story elements and a decent amount of replayability. Side missions extend out this slightly short game. A bit of warning, there are a few sections where you won’t know where to go. You have to think things out before you rush out guns blazing. Multiplayer is pretty fun, although limited to 8 players per match. Definitely worth the purchase!

Drew’s Rating:If you were a fan of the original comics (which there are a full full issues on the disc, an excellent extra), buy this. If not, check out the demo before you plunge your hard earned cash.
