2017/11/2: Wii: Alien Syndrome, The Calling

Postby VideoGameCritic » November 2nd, 2017, 9:16 am

The Calling is a game I was reviewing for Halloween. Got about as far as I could stomach.

Alien Syndrome is just bad. Even the version on Sega Classics Collection (PS2) is better.

The original Alien Syndrome is a pretty great '80s arcade game. I hadn't even heard of this Wii thing before now, and I think that was for the best.

Both suck, I've seen them at "bargin" bin game places and even then they look like cheap Shovelware. That's why I've mentioned many times about how some games shouldn't be remade and how some should if they can get it right. 8-)

I had a horrible shift the other day. One of those ones where half way through I thought I am going to die here with these 60 million USA products. I am alive and I thought I had replied to this.

I think the Calling looks interesting. The critics review suggested it was bad. Then I went and looked at it playing on you tube. It looks torture.
Next up I looked at alien syndrome which looks a lot of fun. Though I can see the controls have murdered this game. It will not be the first no the last to be murdered by motion controls. Steel Battalion comes to mind on the 360.

This version of Alien Syndrome was released on PSP would having proper controls improve the game or is it intrinsically bad ?
