WAR OF THE WORLDS Media
HG Wells’ masterpiece The War of the Worlds is best remembered as a radio drama, and if you’re too young to know what that is, it’s like a television without the picture.
Other Ocean’s The War of the Worlds will probably not be remembered. But it may not deserve its fate, as can be seen in its newest gameplay video and screen shots.
I hope to get a review copy soon and will be able to post a video explaining the game in greater detail, but I have formulated a visual opinion.
The graphics are beautiful, but there are some lighting choices that are a bit distracting. The characters look a little stiff, but they are still believable in their world. The style and design are going to be this title’s second-best selling point.
Its first selling point will be the source material, to which justice has been given. The alien ships look retro and beautiful, and the setting fits the time period.
Controls will hinder the game. One look at the video shows that this will be a frustrating game to play. However, clunky controls are not always a problem. Ico is one of the most beautiful games of the PS2, and it is a beast to control.
I appreciate side-scrolling platformers, since I’m getting old in the gaming world. Once upon a time, all but RPGs were left-to-right platformers, and Other Ocean has added plenty of depth here to make it feel like a 3D platformer.
