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

 

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...
