Quick Review of Special Forces: Team X

http://thecontrolleronline.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Special-Forces-Team-X-Logo.png

Since I played the last Gears Of War I have been looking for a new third person shooter to fill the void left by Gears Of War Judgment.  I looked around a little bit and I found Special Forces: Team X (XBLA).  Even though it has been out for a while and it’s not the best third person shooter in the world, it is really fun to play and, for 10 bucks, why not.  Since this is not an official review I am going to keep this quick.  Here are the three reasons I like this game:

1. The cell shaded graphics.  I have always liked the cartoonish look of cell shaded videogames. But the best thing, I think, is that, as the game gets older, it will not be apparent that it is dated so you can play such games longer and not feel any loss of graphic quality.

2. It’s Fun to play...

!!!!Before I get to it, I would like to thank my nephew Luke for loaning me his copy of this game so I can do this review.  Thanks Luke!!!

I just got done with Gears Of War: Judgement and I have a lot to say about this so let’s begin.

As a fan of videogames you come to expect certain things about controls.  Take Mario Bros– B is to run and A is to jump.  The control setup is the same throughout the series.  Over time, built up over years of playing, your brain creates strong neural pathways so when a new game in the series comes out, you can play the newest edition fluidly and easily because you don’t have to learn the control setup all over again.  Changes, however, can get you killed over and over, and over again.  Because you played the fun previous edition games oh so much,...

Injustice Gods Among Us Demo quick review

 

Well, I went into my gaming lair, turned on the 360 and saw that an Injustice Gods Among Us demo was up.  I downloaded it and had a few playthroughs with Batman, Wonder Woman, and Lex Luther.  I’ve got to say, I really like what I see.  The combo system is easy to get the hang of and pressing the back button to block was a great improvement to the controls.  The interactive levels are cool and provide some exciting in-fight moments, and the super moves are brutal and awesome.  Overall the visuals look great.

I really wanted to play more of this game and am really looking forward to playing the full version when it’s out later in April.  Until then, enjoy this Aquaman trailer and download the demo.  -Jay (NinjaJay81)
