While the members of Slipknot and their music are in this game, don’t let that determination be your only deciding factor in making a purchase. Ever since Mortal Kombat hit the scene, the game industry has been pushing the violence factor to the limit. Infected is no different from the rest in this regard. Lewd language, heavy metal music, and violently bloody explosions create a fairly unique atmosphere that compliments the game play to a tee.
There are many companies out there bringing port after port to our beloved PSP, but few companies have felt the desire to craft a truly genuine experience on the little portable that dared stand its ground against the big bad Nintendo. XSEED Games dares to break that mold. Their last game, Valhalla Knights was a great idea with a somewhat flawed execution. If dungeon crawling is what you desire, but Valhalla Knights failed to quench your thirst for hack and slash goodness, Dungeon Maker may prove to be your beverage of choice.
We all know what it takes to make a good RPG. It’s really not that hard. Make the character models look unique, the dungeons varied, and throw in some level grind goodness but don’t make it too tedious or too frequent. Take this, coupled with a story that captivates the game playing audience, and you’ve got something that will satisfy most RPG nerds.
I never watched the Black Rock Shooter anime prior to playing the game. I didn’t know what to expect, so going by the name alone, I thought it would be a bad first person shooter with a generic anime paint job. By playing the game, I discovered the show, and now I’m hooked. I’m also a bit hung up on the game. I started the game with only the intent to review it, but as I played it, I got caught up in the gameplay. I really don’t know how to review this. Is it an RPG, an action game, or a 3rd person shooter?
