Fatal Fury Special Review Rewind

Yes, Mai bounces in this oneā€¦

Released around the start of the rivalry between SNK and Capcom in 1993, Fatal Fury Special proved to be a real contender to Street Fighter II. It also followed Street Fighter’s example, as it was an updated edition of Fatal Fury 2.

UNO Review Rewind

The classic card game manages to be one of the most enjoyable titles on Xbox Live Arcade.

At the launch of the Xbox 360, the new Xbox Live Arcade service was introduced but there wasn’t a lot to be excited about. Oh sure, ports of Smash TV, Bejeweled 2, and Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved is fine but there was nothing of real substance in the XBLA launch lineup. Fast forward to May of 2006 and a digital version of the card game UNO is released. In less than a year’s time, it becomes the first XBLA title to surpass one million downloads.

Xotic Review

Beautiful graphics and interesting mechanics does not a good game make.

Xotic is a peculiar beast. Developer WXP Games has created something that’s somewhat hard to describe yet familiar when you actually play it. As the reviewer though, I need to do my best in doing so. Okay. Xotic (pronounced like exotic) is a first person shooter with an emphasis on scoring and clearing a level like that of a puzzle game. You are sent to stop the Orb, which is a being that evolved beyond its physical body and has gone mad and is now destroying planets. The way you accomplish this is by completing each level by destroying enemies, collecting power-ups and shooting orb plants in order to get a combo going and raise your high score. Despite impressive art design and surprisingly deep game mechanics, none of this actually melds into a cohesive whole and you’ll be left disappointed at a game that at first held promise but quickly grows frustrating.
