Dead Space 2 Review

I’ve had a long experience with survival horror from Resident Evil on PlayStationOne to the trauma of Silent Hill 2 and titles to now. The genre did get a little stagnant with gore over scares becoming more common. I missed Dead Space because I was busy playing other titles when it released, so the sequel was my first experience with the series.

It’s all gone back to the beginning.

Repost: Dante’s Inferno Review

Even through the first words about Dante’s Inferno is that it is a God Of War clone, is there a better game to pull influences from in the action genre?

Dante’s Inferno successfully pulls off the “epic” game through the journey of the nine levels of Hell and while most of the game is a linear journey down and boss battles aren’t as often as they could have been, the experience is what the title should be: fun.

Dante’s Inferno can be completed in about eight to ten hours depending on how quickly each area is completed, but sometimes it was fun to stick in areas that constantly spawned enemies to gain experience and attempt to hit high combos.

Repost: Dante’s Inferno: The Trials of St. Lucia Review

Electronic Arts and Visceral Games has already released some DLC to compliment their great original release, but like most action titles, DLC usually is placed to fill in some plot holes and expand the story. Beyond that, most action games lose some of their excitement after the first completion.

The Trials of St. Lucia is a different kind of DLC because it allows for players to create challenges to test others in their abilities. So while it doesn’t expand the story this time around, it does create an endless supply of things to do, created by the development team and other players around the world.
