The Amazing Spider-Man review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of The Amazing Spider-Man from Beenox and Activision for the PlayStation 3. The Amazing Spider-Man is a standard 3D beat 'em up, similar in structure to a lot of other games. Specifically, a lot of games based on movies. The game is set in the immediate aftermath of the film. You control Spider-Man through more than 20 missions, the majority of which are spent beating on enemies. In terms of the gameplay, this is the same kind of button mashing you've done before. What makes it interesting is the presentational flair. Spider-Man bounces between bad guys like a pinball. He jumps around like a luchador on a sugar high, and he does a mean hurricanrana. This video review features video gameplay footage of The Amazing Spider-Man for the PlayStation 3 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
EDGE review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR shirts & mugs! http://www.CGRstore.com Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of EDGE on the eShop for the Nintendo Wii U developed by mobigame and published by Two Tribes. Combine Q*bert and BIT*TRIP with a little plane geometry, and voila! You’ve got EDGE. The popular mobile puzzler has made its way to Nintendo’s eShop, and it feels right at home. Players flip a cube through more than 100 levels, each one an obstacle course built from basic shapes. It looks simple, but the levels are in a state of constant motion, with switches that trigger hidden bridges and platforms and conveyor belts. The levels are like LEGO structures being put together by invisible hands. Collect the glowing cubes and get to the exit as fast as you can to get the highest grade possible. Your first run through a level is to learn it and work your way toward that one perfect run. The Wii U version includes off-screen play on the GamePad, as well as all the levels from the EDGE expansion. EDGE is a single-player puzzle-platformer. This video review features video gameplay footage of EDGE on the eShop for the Nintendo Wii U and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
Rune Factory 4 review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR shirts & mugs! http://www.CGRstore.com Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Rune Factory 4 for Nintendo 3DS developed by Neverland Co. and published by XSEED Games. Rune Factory 4 blends the kind of backbreaking field work that made the Harvest Moon series a hit with the kind of action-RPG hacking and slashing that made... well, any number of hits. Let's go with Secret of Mana. And between them all, theres a town full of people going about their lives, overseen by a dragon god with a bit of a mischievious streak, and a prince-or-princess that fell from the sky (and who isn't actually royalty but the actual royalty can't be bothered so they've delegated the position). And that prince-or-princess is you. This video review features video gameplay footage of Rune Factory 4 for Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.
