Fear Effect Sedna Review
I believe I wasn’t the only one who was excited when Square Enix announced that it will revive the Fear Effect franchise. Fear Effect and its prequel Fear Effect: Retro Helix were hard-boiled and cinematic action-adventures released on PlayStation One. Their unashamed millennial violence was something that captured imaginations of players who were sick of pansy mass-marketed games. French indie studio Sushee is already busy building up re-imagination of the original Fear Effect, but first they came up with a new entry to the series.
With hardly any time having passed since the release of their last top-down shooter, Time Recoil, 10tons is back with another top-down twin-stick shooter boasting their trademark style. The ideas behind these games by the quirky Finnish developers may have born with tongue in cheek but as far as the gameplay mechanics are concerned, it’s all serious business.
Time Recoil Review
The Finnish developers behind the well-received Neon Chrome come back with another top-down twin stick shooter. At a quick glance, you'd be forgiven to mistake Time Recoil for some Neon Chrome DLC, but it turns out the game has an identity of its own. Time Recoil isn’t as much a blast fest as it is a thinking man’s shooter. At times, it could almost pass for a game of chess - deadly chess with bullets, explosions and time-warping super powers.
