Army Corps of Hell Review

 

Army Corps of Hell captures the devilish combat of its setting but is too repetitive to sustain that appeal.

Bloody and satisfying combat ; Intense boss fights ; Entertaining cooperative play

Severe lack of diversity ; Aiming doesn't always work properly ; Frustrating punishment for dying

There is some strategy in advancing. Certain enemies are covered with flames or electrical currents, so you must use your magi while keeping your distance. Other enemies are vulnerable only from the back. A snake that erupts from the ground swallows...

Fitting soundtrack ; Colorful visuals ; Boss battles are awesome

Repetitive action ; Strategy feels shallow at times

Army Corps of Hell PlayStation Vita Review

 

The anti-hero of the game, the King of Hell, gets knocked off his thrown and cast into the abyss, where he hooks up (AKA brainwashes) a small army of ugly goblins and commands these creatures to do his bidding.

Watching goblins rip enemies to shreds, lots of blood, user-friendly controls, Ad Hoc multiplayer, gorgeous artwork

Silly rear touch pad controls, concept grows old fast, graphics don't bring out the best of PlayStation Vita, seems overpriced

Army Corps of Hell is a twisted cross between Overlord and Pikmin, drizzled with chunky bits of gore; you know, for flavor. It's without question the most bizarre PlayStation Vita launch title, sort of like the weird emo kid in class no one wants to...

A great concept, Army Corps of Hell could've been something special, but falls prey to weak graphics and reptitive gameplay.

Army Corps of Hell has a great premise, some intense boss fights, and a fantastic soundtrack. Unfortunately, the repetitious gameplay bogs the experience down, making this a trip to hell that you're not going to want to keep returning to. Steven Hopper...

Imagine Pikmin with demons and death metal -- that's kind of like what Army Corps of Hell is. Instead of commanding cute little plant-like creatures in an oxygen-heavy forest, you'll command nasty goblins in the bowels of flaming Hell, playing as the...

It may not be the best-looking game in the Vita's launch line-up -- and it's definitely lacking in the variety department -- but the frantic gameplay and the insane death metal soundtrack help take the sting off. Go ahead, go to Hell.

The PlayStation Vita will have no less than 25 titles available on launch day, and there's a nice variety, too. One of the more intriguing titles comes from developer Entersphere, Inc. and publisher Square Enix; it's Army Corps of Hell, a strategy...

Army Corps of Hell could be great for strategy fans who want a fast-paced title that requires both thought and ingenuity. It’s also a nice change of pace, as it offers more depth and perhaps a longer overall experience than other Vita launch titles....

What happens when you cross Dio with Pikmin? The answer isn't as brilliant as you might think. Read on to..

Army Corps of Hell feels more like a low-key Mini title; certainly not a full retail game being sold in stores for close to $90! The highlight of the game is probably the thrash hardcore metal soundtrack and even this won’t appeal to everyone. Best to...

Army Corps of Hell is probably the outsider's choice of Vita launch games. Pikmin meets Overlord with a metal soundtrack- the perfect portable combo?

Army Corps of Hell" starts out great. However, the weak graphics and repetitive enemies start to grate after just a couple of hours, and not long after, the gameplay innovation also dries up, making everything a rather tiresome slog. Army Corps of Hell...

Army Corps of Hell lives up to its name, dragging you down into the realms of darkness, dictating that tedium be your eternal punishment.
