Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg – Review

That torturous, fickle experience I just alluded to combines with a lack of engaging play mechanics to create Billy Hatcher And The Giant Egg. A simplistic, by-the-numbers 3D platformer with inspiration taken from Sonic The Hedgehog, Billy Hatcher ends up lagging behind the genre's top games by a wide margin despite its novel concept.

Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg

Game Description: Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg is a 3D game centering around a young boy on a mission to save his kingdom from an evil ruler.Billy is no ordinary boy, however. The lad, through the use of a special suit, has the power to control the worlds magical eggs. These eggs can be rolled along the ground to solve puzzles, fight enemies, and uncover secrets.

Voodoo Vince

Game Description: Voodoo Vince is an outrageous venture—from the streets of New Orleans to the depths of a Louisiana bayou—where players explore and fight as a tattered-but-tough voodoo doll on a quest to find the whereabouts of his keeper, Madam Charmaine. In true voodoo style, Vince encounters and defeats quirky monsters and villains ... by kicking his own butt! By racing under a falling safe, jumping into a high-speed blender, or leaping under falling rubble, Vince is sure to defeat his enemies—all while managing to escape completely unscathed.

Voodoo Vince – Review

At its core, Voodoo Vince is a very conventional platformer, and I suspect that those who frequent the genre will find the game slightly less appealing for its lack of original mechanics. But this is a game that nonetheless excels because of its bizarre theme and the humorous contexts through which it is acted out.

Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis – Review

Aquaman is a shining example of why being a game critic can really suck. It's a bad game that needs to be reviewed so other gamers out there can avoid being sucked into the whirlpool of uninspired gameplay, bland graphics, and generalized mediocrity that colors the entirety of the title. Despite doing this public service, I can't help but feel a little bitter toward TDK Mediactive for foisting this game on me.

Alter Echo – Review

All kidding aside, Alter Echo is particularly interesting not only for its wet, squishy levels, but because of its release date. Like the way Hollywood often has competing films with similar content, Alter Echo hit the streets just after Capcom's Chaos Legion this past August.

Alter Echo

Game Description: Multiplast is the most important substance in the Universe because rare individuals called Shapers can physically shape it into all sorts of bio-machines. You play Nevin, a Shaper who works for one of the many Corporations that mine Multiplast. You’re not just any Shaper—you can also Time Dilate, something most Shapers can’t do. Your employers have sent you to Proteus because a Shaper named Paavo has created a new form of Plast and it’s gotten out of control. The new Plast (called Xenoplast) has become self-aware. It knows that humanity plans to exploit it and it doesn’t want to suffer that fate. To make matters worse, it’s figured out a way to retaliate. The last thing you wanted was to have to save humanity, but hey—if you don’t do it, no one else will.
