Deadlight Review


Does Deadlight deliver an outstanding side-scrolling platform adventure, or does it get eaten by zombies?

Deadlight lacks neither style nor substance, and it lasts just about the perfect amount of time. The story is minimal but engaging, and the ending is unexpected -- in a good way. A couple of sections stumble a bit, but not enough to detract from what...

Shadow Complex


Chair Entertainment's addictive side-scroller is the best original XBLA game to date.

Intense action; challenging, reward-based exploration; impressive visuals and score; tons of replayability

Backtracking is not for everyone; shooting into the background can be frustrating at times

Shadow Complex - Review


What exactly is meant by the term “shadow complex”? If this were a college psychiatry lecture, it would probably be a synonym for the fear of the night, noctiphobia. Or it may be the exact opposite and attribute to one's adoration to the love of night...

The single-player campaign only took four hours and 45 minutes for my first run through, but that isn’t to say that the gameplay isn’t extravagantly daring for continuous sessions. Allowing players to upgrade their armor, health, weapons and collect...

Shadow Complex

All in all, Shadow Complex is a finely-crafted game that is sure to please anyone with a fondness for the older Metroids or the newer side-scrolling Castlevanias as this offers up a similar experience, with some of its own touches that help it stand...

Shadow Complex


Shadow Complex is a triumph, a new standard for downloadable games.

It’s not just Jason’s weaponry that expands – early on he finds a piece of an advanced suit of armour that eventually leads him to transform into a super-powered cyborg. At first the upgrades are slight – thrust boosts for a double boost jump and...

Shadow Complex Review


From the moment I was first shown Shadow Complex, I knew that I wanted to play it. Now that I've explored every nook and cranny of this massive Xbox Live Arcade game and saved the day multiple times, I still want to play it. If this is the direction...

Shadow Complex probably could have used a little more development time to iron out a few glitches and nail down the sometimes awkward aiming system. Even so, it stands as one of the best games yet in 2009. And I'm not just talking about the Xbox Live...
