O.D.T.: Escape... Or Die Trying  
"Or Die Playing"

ODT is a questionable action/rpg game in which the player must retrieve gas for their downed air balloon which escalates to further investigation of the tower which develops in this journey. One can choose the brute corporal, Ike Hawkins, the adventurous cartographer, Julia Chase, the impulsive engineer, Maxx Havok, or the mysterious archbishop, Solaar. Other characters are available through separate means. As one of these characters, you must bravely venture into the deep and dark tower to find gas which conveniently waits for you inside the unknown tower for some reason. Spells, mines, grenades, and your gun which can fire several types of ammo will aid you in this macabre voyage against the creatures lurking in the structure.

Control 3/10 - The first noticeable feature about this game are the controls. The ''turn and walk forward'' system is more confusing than the conventional ''walk in any way you want'' method frequently use in action games. It takes a while to get used to the controls. One must jump precisely to avoid falling into the nothingness and timing and judgement are crucial in calculating a jump. There are lots of things your character can do, such as crawling, crouching, and rolling, but they are all unnecessary for the most part and they require memorization. (up + square + R2 just to crawl!?) Quite inconvenient for something you probably won't use. Spells must be set up while the action still goes on around you, so it is optimal to wait in a safe spot to set up spells which is time consuming and tricky in the midst of exchanging shots with a monster. One must aim their gun to actually shoot anything with accuracy, fortunately you need only to press L2. The controls can really frustrate you, especially when you die or lose something valuable as a result of them. Very annoying they are!

Gameplay 2/10 Save points are ultra rare! You'll need to ensure that you will play the game for long periods of time to actually make it worthwhile. The bad thing is that they can also only be used ONCE. This makes you have to plot when to save and decide if you want to save. This leads to repetitive play when you die, which you probably will, more than once too. Your life goes down way too fast when you are hit, especially when you find an explosive crate or barrel which is a good way to seriously reduce your life. There's no particularly effective way to dodge monster shots and attacks because they will eventually get the best of you. Even using the 180 degree turn can be ineffective. The only way to increase your performance is through the ''Shift Stats'' mode. The experience you use in this mode is obtained only through killing monsters. The experience you get is way too little to even be noticed. There is a very obvious bad side to everything in this game.

Story 5/10 - Even though it is half RPG, it is also half action which drags down the story. A Green Pearl benevolent artifact must be delivered to the city of Calli where an epidemic is dominating the people. The crew decides to fly over forbidden territory since it would take too long to travel over known land. The flying ship crashes on top of a creepy tower and now ceases to function.

Audio/Video 4/10 - The graphics are ''blocky'' and music is almost non-existent. The sound effects are noticeable such as one's fired gun and the lurking monsters behind a corner. When some music is evident it is quite freaky because you expect things to happen with the silent mood the music establishes, but sadly, nothing out of the blue. Spells have decent animations but aren't too flashy, just simple. You expect more from both categories in terms of quality and quantity.

Replayability 1/10 - Once you have finished this game you are finished. It is too tedious to play all over again since it is so repetitive. Period.

To buy or to rent? - Neither. Unless you really crave an action game and have tried everything else, then stay away from this game. It's not worth the bucks to buy or rent.

Overall - A bland game that is almost too challenging without ''extra help'' (cough*..cheats...*cough). Not a very good offering to the action or RPG genre at all.

Mycket snack lite verkstad. Orkar inte riktigt spy ur mig men troligen skulle det bli något i stil med de kommentarer som finns under Daikatana.

This is a good game, this is a really good game with a great premise. This game does justice to the sub- Resident Evil `survival horror' genre.
I bought this game because I was looking for a good horror game to play and there's not too many on the market. The concept sounded good with - with it all been set in a high school. Most times, these games tend to be awful, but luckily I enjoyed this.
The two player aspect was a nice touch, and although it does suffer slightly from computer AI, if you play with a friend it can be quite fun. The graphics were also okay, if not stunning and I found the controls fairly easy going.
The high school setting is good and creepy with enough rooms for you to explore and remember your childhood memories. The only problem is that the game is a little short and really doesn't take too long to complete and to be honest, it isn't that hard.
The game owes a lot of the teen horror genre and homage's a lot of classic movies that you'll recognise - including most obviously, The Faculty - even has a character that looks like Josh Hartnett.
I also think this game has strong links to Resident Evil Code Veronica (it terms of feel) and Silent Hill (the dark is like the town turning to hell)
I recommend this game to anyone whose a fan of Silent Hill and Resident Evil who fancies slumming it with an easier game for a little while.

Fångar verkligen highschool-skräckisens själ och sveper in den i ett PS2-spel. Inte världens bästa spel men inte heller det sämsta. Gillar man den här typen av filmer och skräckspel så är det givet att ta del av Obscure.
Roligt att det finns ett co-op läge som funkar skapligt.

If you ever thought it odd that two CGI kids movies about talking ants could come out at the same time, followed by two about talking fish, consider the odds of two video games coming out within months of each other which involve controlling a wolf in a Legend of Zelda style game world. In actual fact Okami first came out in Japan almost a year ago, a long time before Twilight Princess. Nevertheless, this is the best Zelda style game ever on a non-Nintendo console and likely to remain one of the very best games released all year. Not only that but it features probably the most beautiful graphics ever seen on the PlayStation 2 with a completely unique cel-shading effect that makes the whole game world look like it is painted in Japanese water colours.
Throughout the game you control the goddess Amaterasu, who appears as a white wolf (okami is a pun on the Japanese words for both wolf and god). You're guided in your quest, a little too closely it has to be said, by a talking bug named Issun. Although Amaterasu can jump and head-butt, her primary interaction with the world is via the celestial brush. By pausing the game you can paint magic symbols onscreen to create objects in the world, from making plant life bloom to setting off giant bombs. As well as brush attacks, you can use a range of other weapons swapping between primary and secondary slots at will. Apart from Issun's signposting of every puzzle, and the occasionally poor pacing, this can easily hold its head high amongst Nintendo's greatest as one of the PlayStation 2's last, best games.

En del idéer är som stulna ur Zelda men mycket är nytt och fräscht. Cellshadingen är så stilig att det är som att spela ett konstverk. Stort plus för bra kontroll.

I had seen relatively negative reviews about this game, and how it is plagued by faults, and it is faulty, don't get me wrong. But through all it's faults, there is much more to this game than one might believe. As someone who occassionaly buys a game despite overwhelmingly bad reviews, I've learned that many people give bad reviews because of something not being perfect, some people can't be pleased no matter what. Then, there are the games that are completely hyped, and once I play them, my disappointment leads me to believe people are stupid. For instance, for many years a game called Metal Gear Solid was raved about, but once I played the remake for Gamecube, I was left with one of the most boring games I've ever played. I first saw content of this game atleast 6 years ago, but never got around to playing it because my computer can't handle it. That's when I found a copy at Flea World for 15 bucks and picked it up. For awhile, I had alternating opinions about it, between it being one of the dumbest games ever, to one of the best games ever. I will list certain aspects of the game
Fairly low quality graphics due to large enviroments and a pretty amateur development team
sound- parts are totally devoid of sound, cities are fairly quiet- David Bowie lends his music to the game, as well as his voice acting- I'm not a real fan of Bowie's emo-style of singing, but he adds a human element to the game. His voice acting is suprisingly good, it's actually some of the better voice acting of the game. Voice overs are sometimes low volume and plagued with distortion, like chattering.
The combat system is pretty lame as well, especially first person shooting, which wouldn't be so terrible if the controling was a lot easier. Fighting is also pretty subpar, and the animation only makes it seem worse. The overall large size of your enviroment was a first for it's time, and you can see it's inspiration on later games like GTA3 and beyond. Character animation is pretty stiff and unreal looking.
But despite all it's problems, lies a game with a really unique and intriguing story that keeps you guessing. It's puzzle mechanics are very intellegent, and sometimes downright complex, adding a level of maturity to the game. Rougnly 80% of the game revolves around exploration, leaving relatively little combat situations, which is good because that aspect is almost completely useless. It's not for everybody, but this game deserves more credit than it has been given.

Onechanbara Z2: Chaos  
Action PlayStation 4
Onechanbara Z2: Chaos (お姉チャンバラZ2 ~カオス~ OneeChanbara Z2?) is a 2014 Action–Hack and slash video game developed by Tamsoft, as part of the OneeChanbara series. It is the sequel to the Japan-exclusive Xbox 360 title OneeChanbara Z ~ Kagura ~ (which was later re-released for Playstation 3 in 2013), and the first game in the series to be localized since OneChanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers and Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad in 2009.
The Gameplay has been compared to Bayonetta, and revolves around hack and slash combat. Throughout the game, two sets of playable characters can be swapped with on the fly, each boasting their own unique attacks and abilities (the characters at hand depend on the given stage). Throughout the game, players will earn yellow orbs, which act as a form of currency. These orbs may be exchanged for new combat moves and gear.

Players will battle a variety of enemies, mainly zombies, werewolves, ghouls and demons. In order to defeat these foes, weapons such as swords, chainsaws, and guns are available. Slaying enemies will result in the dismemberment of limbs, as well as an in-game combo.

After completing a level, the user is graded on their performance throughout the stage. Factors such as combo length, time it took to complete the level, amount of items used, damage dealt and damage received can all affect this score in a positive and negative manner. These scores can also be submitted to the worldwide leader boards.
