Peter Brown gives you the good and the bad about Sine Mora before his time runs out.
@ LinkStormrage do own a PS3? Your avatar looks like Gears :). Game does look good but I'm an old school player. I remember Gradius :)
If you like the concept of this game and how it brings new aspects into a side scrolling shooter you should check out our game Zeit2 ( Zeit Squared ) that was released last year on XBLA and Steam. Reviewed here on Gamestop as 8.0. Zeit2 ( Zeit Squared ) has similar gameplay but is even more tactical and has drastically different graphics (which are very abstract and can't compete with the amazing details of Sine Mora.)
@gunnplay I m just saying that its a bad example to compare to dead nation unless you own 1 XBLA title only. Seriously XBLA had tons of quality exclusives better than dead nation.
@y3ivan Yes, I know. I meant that, in regards to high quality, critically acclaimed, exclusive downloadable console titles, Sine Mora is Xbox 360's Dead Nation. I was trying to be stylishly minimalistic in my analogy, instead it just came off vague and confusing. Forgive me for that. :)
How did I not hear about this game until now? It reminds me a lot of Aegis Wing, that free game Microsoft put on the Arcade years ago. Had a lot of fun with that, too. I'll have to try this out.
Looks like a bullet hell type game I used to love. These days..my eyes got tired just watching the action, lol. Looks cool though, i like the faux 3d effects.
whats wrong with sony. sony should release all this s h i t on vita 2. i want to play downloadable games on vita :(
Tried the demo this morning, not bad, I'll have to look into buying this game once I can buy some more points. Love the old side scroller shooters. I miss Thunderforce, G-Darius and R-Type.
@Xxthesorrow90xX You should have checked my game list in this website before saying something that wrong
@x2rufff4u Of course!, we need to have 360 reviews so you PS3 fanboys can come here and try to start a flame (we know you are bored with your console, that is why you come to the opposite console's exclusivities reviews and write stuff).
@TylerW Cool. Thanks for the info. Looks like it's time for me to dust off the 'ol 360. I'm excited to play this one.
@SlowMotionKarma That's the gist of it, yeah. Shooting down enemies nets you time, getting hit drains it. Some enemies and obstacles are one kit kills, but those are fairly rare occasions. But there's enough opportunity of swimming through swarms of bullets that if you're sloppy, you won't survive, yet you don;t need to avoid every single bullet to avoid death. The challenge is certainly there, and enough to feel like you're really on your toes, but it's not abusive.
@TylerW So you gain time by defeating enemies, right? What about all the lasers/missiles/beams being shot at you? Does being hit by those remove some time from your counter? What's the reason I should avoid their weapons? This game looks like great fun. I'm a big fan of bullet hell games and this one not only looks fun to play, but beautiful as well.
What The Frack!!!!!!!!!!!! This game looks awesome. Is it a dloadable game or a disc game? It's so funny such a 2D game triggers my interest while crappy 3D game like Resient Evil Raccoon City are being released. It just shows that any game can become a great game, only if that's the developpers' goal. Kudo to Grasshopper Manufacture. Me likes!
These type shooters all look amazing... but their difficulty only appeal to a select few. I can't deal with the frustration.
@splinter10 Don't you worry, there's plenty of opportunity to die. Think of the time limit like a life bar - that's pretty much how it works.
Too bad they don't have it for PC. But if they did port it to steam or a DRM free version I would defiantly be interested in buying a copy.
I'm a little worried about the time based gameplay. I don't usually do good with those types of games. It looks like a lot of fun, though.
Would love to play this, but the idea of not being able to die sounds very easy, even if there is a time limit.
