An update to the one of the loved (and frequently imitated) word games ever created, Text Twist 2 introduces new ways to its basic, yet addicting gameplay. However, it’s not enough for keeping the game from being a bit simple.The concept is straightforward: at the beginning of every round, you’re presented with a list of letters (six or seven according to the setting you’ve selected) and you must make as many sentences out of these letters as you can within the two-minute time frame. Words that include every letter are known as BINGOs and you have to get at least one BINGO every round in order to progress to the next round.
Nobody likes the petty online guru who’s obsessed with the correcting of everyone. The people are particularly irritated when this guy pops up and tells anyone that a media item doesn’t belong into a specific category. I’m not this person, but if the game is described as being part of a certain genre, I would hope it plays according to the category.
For example, Xenia’s Steam page promotes it as the “Metroidvania” title. This usually means that the game is a platformer that has an unlinear layout and inaccessible sections of a map which you can traverse after you’ve mastered a new ability or item. This time, however the game being played provides your typical linear, level-by-level hack and shred platformer experience with no connected passageways or any new skills to unlock.
Ghost in the Shell was one of many PlayStation games that I was fortunate to experience during my time as an Blockbuster Video employee, certainly an experience to behold considering that very few Anime related games were accepted for distribution in the US like they are currently. The game came out in the US following the highly-acclaimed film premiered in theaters and it tries to recreate the feeling that you experienced when watching the film, to a certain extent that includes the majority of the voice actors that sound similar to the movie version in a thrilling anime cutscenes as well as 3D graphic briefings prior to every mission. It’s definitely a complete experience in its own.
