Steel Diver review

Posted : 3 years, 5 months ago on 6 July 2014 12:15 (A review of Steel Diver)

Steel Diver has a bad rep, but it truly isn't a bad game. As one of the 3DS's launch titles, Steel Diver sometimes feels more like a tech demo rather than a fully fleshed-out game. The main story mode of the game is a stylus-controlled side-scroller where you must get a submarine from one side of an extremely challenging obstacle course to another. You must defeat each level with each of the the three submarine types: small, medium, and large. This essentially gives you 21 levels to traverse - each mor difficult than the last. In addition to this mission mode, there are also time trial runs on obstacle-littered courses, gyroscope controlled periscope attack levels, and an online strategy attack mode as well. The graphics in Steel Diver are not bad: the side scrolling levels have a beautiful underwater depth to them, while the periscope levels have a nice quality of realism. The music is excellent. Difficulty level is quite high. A strategic mind is needed as well as a quick hand with the stylus. Anyone who grew up on Nintendo's original Game & Watch games will love the game's overall simplicity. I loved Steel Diver, but would recommend purchasing it for no more than $10.00. It doesn't have enough content to support the recommended $40 price tag.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 review

Posted : 3 years, 5 months ago on 6 July 2014 12:00 (A review of New Super Mario Bros. 2)

NSMB2 is fun, but really doesn't bring anything too new to the franchise. While the new focus for this game is to collect as many coins as you can, it has no bearing on Mario and Luigi's mission to rescue the princess. The game feels like a port of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. The graphics and music are just as good as the Wii version. The game certainly doesn't lack challenge or fun, which makes it a worthwhile purchase. NSMB2 does not reinvent the Mario Bros. side-scrolling platformer wheel, but makes a great addition for diehard fans that can't seem to get enough. Four out of five stars.
