Magic Ball - Gem or Phlegm?

   0


What the lobster milkshake is wrong with Gamespot, besides the fact that they are money whores and cash cows? I wanted to start this post off positive, but goddamn, I just thought I would take a peek at their review of Magic Ball for the PSN, and they gave it a 6. A f#[email protected]%ing 6!? Mitch Dyer, you either have no heart, or no soul, either way, you sir, are a douche. It is interesting that a couple of the things he listed as "The Bad" in his review are reasons why I actually enjoyed the game. One example, "Too easy to lose sight of your ball". Yeah, Mitch, that's part of the challenge of the game. That's part of what makes this game unique. It could be a clone of the many, many, many Arkanoid clones, but no, CREAT decided to take the road less traveled. Damn those CREAT bastards!
I won't go off on a tangent any more than I already have so read it for yourself and let me know what you think.



The wife and I just downloaded this last night and had a blast the entire time. This game is fantastic, and a great multiplayer experience. Speaking of multiplayer, I thought it was interesting how they implemented this. When you are playing co-op, you only have to worry about your half of the screen; there is an invisible wall that splits down the middle of the playing field, which is great if you have someone that would otherwise snag your power-ups in a heartbeat if you let your guard down for more than a second.



The physics are pretty solid, what with the Havok engine and all, but the gameplay overall is just plain fun. Other than that, their really isn't much more to say that hasn't already been said by Mr. Sterling.

So, what do you dtoiders think of this? Gem or Phlegm?
