I am aboot a week late with the Christmas episode – but I have the video ready at the same time ( big thanks to Kamaal for that).
Snoopy vs. The Red Baron – PS2
- This is great game.
- Imagine the combat from Rogue squaron or Crimson skies, but in a fun Peanuts world.
- Graphics are clean and very peanutty.
- Art is a combo of cell shaded 3D stuff and actual 2D peanuts stuff
- The music is ok, but the VO is a bit lame. The actors are obviously not the same as from the cartoon show and it feels different.
- The gameplay is solid with a good mix of combat and flying.
- Missions are well varied from kill this to defend that!
- Buy this game. You WILL have fun.
Oddworld, Stranger’s wrath –
- 3rd person action game with FPS elements.
- In the same universe as previous Oddworlds games
- plays like many other action games.
- Bounty enemies for cash to upgrade and catch bigger/ badder emenies.
Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition – PS2
- To start I have never played on of these before. I’ve seen the first one played, but never done it myself.
- This game as everybody knows is all about cool. This game covers cool, like a fat guy on a bicycle seat.
- Graphics are very nice for the PS2. FMVs are pretty and full of humour.
- The sound is well done, but the hard rock soundtrack is kind of annoying during the load screen… especially after you’ve died 3 or 4 times on a mission and it starts from the same spot.
- Gameplay is the same old DMC fair: You fight hordes of spooky baddies using swords and guns in a multitude of high flying combos.
- If you like 3rd person action (Final Fight updated) this is a great game. If you’re looking for a deeper story or something a bit more tactical this ain’t for you.
Retro Gaming Moment
