Mortal Kombat X moves forward with a snappier version of the previous game's fighting and some cool new characters, but the story and other features around the edges feel a bit rough in spots.
The ways that Axiom Verge resembles Metroid help set up and drive home the ways that Axiom Verge is most definitely not Metroid.
Hotline Miami's thrillingly brutal gameplay is stretched to the point of breaking in this aesthetically pleasing, but otherwise disappointing sequel.
Don't worry Tim, I write the same way. Can't wait for this goddamned game!
"You know; Microsoft should try and make a Kung Fu Chaos sequel, I liked that game alot."
This one, and the last one didn't play on chrome for me. Just got about 2 seconds in, and froze up. Guess I'll try IE again.
I don't know how long the fps sequence was in the theatrical version, (because I didn't see it in the theather) but the extended dvd version is way too long, and honestly boring. It's cute, but it really just feels like an on-rails shooter. I do own the dvd ($6 at Best Buy!), and I thought it was enjoyable, it certainly has that "so bad it's good" quality to it. I did cringe everytime they made a reference to the game, because they were all just silly, and took me out of the movie. The problem is that aside from the monsters, there's nothing that really makes this a "Doom" movie, so any references to the game just seemed out of place. So as a "Doom" movie, it's an insult, but as a generic sci-fi action flick, it's bad, but I'm ok with bad.
The most interesting part about this movie is that there's a Bison-themed version of a painting by John Gacy in it. You can see it in this video at 1:39. I think it was an attempt to build on Bison's evilness, but it's a little too extreme, a little too obscure (how many people could recognize a John Wayne Gacy painting?), and frankly it doesn't really make much sense to relate Bison to a man who was convicted of raping and murdering 33 young boys. I would think even Bison would've said "Hey man, that's not cool."
Don't know why so many people are complaining about the lack of a review. He did review it. He just didn't give it a rating.
