Prototype answers the question of what happens when you make a sandbox game that not only has little punishment for causing destruction, but encourages it. Where other games would quickly spell game over if you caused havoc on the general population, this game gives you experience and skill points for doing so. But the game is far more than just some murder simulator, there is a point to all the madness you cause.

The World Ends With You

The World Ends With You

Square Enix is known for milking any series with the words Final and Fantasy, in the title. So imagine my surprise when they announced a new RPG for the Nintendo DS would be an original IP. The World Ends With You was developed by the same team who created the Kingdom Hearts series, but outside of some similar character designs it is quite a different departure. However there’s a reason why Square Enix tends to stick with time tested IP’s as original stuff sometimes misses the mark in a bad way. So is The World Ends With You another smash hit like Kingdom Hearts or do we have another The Bouncer on our hands?

“Don’t cross the streams.” “There is no Dana, there is only Zuul” “Are you a god?” “We’re ready to believe you!” If these quotes mean nothing to you, then you can probably skip over the rest of this review as there is a bit of basic Ghostbusters knowledge you’ll need to fully understand this. In what can be described as pure fan service, Ghostbusters: The Video Game does everything it can to give you what is basically the third Ghostbusters movie. From the entire principal cast returning to do voice work, to Dan Akroyd and Harold Ramis lending their help to the script, multiple references to the first and second Ghostbuster movies and even using many of the original film’s music, you really feel the immersion into the Ghostbusters’ universe.
