Sine Mora

 

Sine Mora is a divided product of strong component parts and ideas that don't always live up to their full potential. It plays like an entry-level shmup with the desire to capture whatever segment of the audience ignores the typified “bullet hell”...

It’s often too easy to pigeonhole the design influences from many of the genre greats. As the shmup is a genre that lends itself well to focusing solely on the mechanics, that’s generally the central basis of comparisons. Sine Mora doesn’t follow any...

Last November, Rayman Origins hit the stores, reminding everyone just how beautiful a side scroller can be. Now, Grasshopper Manufacture, in collaboration with Digital Reality, have met that bar, if not surpassed it, with their new diesel punk shooter...

Loading up Score Attack mode on Insane, and dying after less than ten seconds.

Every 2D shoot-em-up needs a gimmick. R-Type had its detachable orb, Ikaruga allowed players to change colors and the Darius series had giant space fish. Grasshopper Manufacture's newest Xbox Live Arcade shooter, Sine Mora, also has a gimmick, though...

Sine Mora combines the best of 2D shooters with a dark storyline you have to see to believe. The result is an exciting action game that will remind gamers everywhere why they loved R-Type, Gradius and countless other horizontal shooters. Even with a...

The shoot-em-up (shmup) genre seems like it’s a rare breed of games these days. There’s the odd one that will come out here and there, but it’s definitely quieted since the days of R-Type, 1943, Gradius, Eihander, and many others back in its glorious...

Sine Mora infuses classic shoot 'em up gameplay with time manipulation and a grim narrative that sets it apart from its peers in all the right ways.

Innovates and feels fresh without betraying its roots ; Sophisticated story with brutally honest characters ; A wide range of scenarios and customization ; Well balanced difficulty encourages repeat playthroughs

Individual segments are often too short ; The story is initially hard to follow

Sine Mora Review

 

It's time for a new 2D shooter. Not only is Sine Mora beautiful, it boasts a trick that sets it apart from other arcade shoot 'em ups.

It's time for a new 2D shooter. Everything fans expect is here in Sine Mora (giant bosses, flashy explosions, serious challenge), but the entertaining time mechanic should prove a welcome surprise. It tweaks the recipe just enough to create an uncommon...

Sine Mora Xbox 360 Review

 

There's something delightfully ‘old-school' about the traditional bullet-hell shooter. Maybe because it invokes memories of far off days when games regularly came packed less with difficulty curves, but a thousand mile high difficulty mountain to...

While it’s lofty price of 1200 Microsoft space bucks might put off some, anyone who has either a fond memory of spending hours of committing bullet patterns to memory or an interest in leaping into the genre, needs to splash out on Sine Mora. While a...

Sine Mora strikes a deft balance between madness and shoot-em-up fun.

A tactical shoot-em-up everyone can enjoy ; Surprisingly strong story

Challenging mode for Arcade and Score Attack wouldn't go amiss ; Sometimes bordering on samey level design

Still, it's hard to get too down on a game in which a killer piano can fall on you. I also don't know if such moments are down to Suda51's touch, but I do know there's only so much you can keep him out of a Grasshopper game. Sine Mora, crucially with...
