About Tyler Cameron

Tyler resides in Southern California with his wife and five pets. When he isn't taking care of his family, however, his hobbies consist of playing and writing about videogames. From a young age, he was interested in both videogames and writing, and when the two came together, everything was made right in the world. He is fan all games and game consoles, and is not one to say "No" to a new gaming experience. Oh, and he's also been known to have an unhealthy love for videogame music.

Pinball FX2 Review (XBLA)

Pinball FX2 was developed and published by Zen Studios for XBLA on October 27th, 2010. Retails for free, individual tables can be purchased. The publisher provided a copy of the game and 8 tables for reviewing purposes.

Pinball FX2 is a pinball game, pure and simple. It never strives to be anything more or less than this, which is one of its greatest strengths. It’s the type of game that someone can get real serious or strategic about, or something that you can just kill time with, like Peggle.

I’m even tempted to say that there ‘s no excuse not to play this game. It is free after all, and only requires players to purchase individual tables for 200 Microsoft Points a piece. Any of the game’s tables can be demoed for free, and anything you may have purchased with the first Pinball FX can be ported and played on FX2 with the game’s improved ball physics. So honestly, what’s not to like? Unless you have a seething, underlying hatred for pinball then you have no reason not to check this game out.

Hydrophobia Review (XBLA)

Hydrophobia was developed by Dark Energy Digital and published by Microsoft Game Studios for XBLA on September 29, 2010. Retails for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15). The publisher provided a copy of the game for reviewing purposes.

After more than three years in development, Hydrophobia is finally available on Xbox Live Arcade to start off this fall’s Game Feast promotion. The result is a fine action adventure game made special because of its impressive water physics, but one that is also far from perfect.

Developed by Dark Energy Digital, Hydrophobia takes place in the near future upon a massive sea-faring city called The Queen of the World, which is taken over by a group of terrorists called the Malthusians. It often resembles BioShock in both theme and setting, but stands out mostly due to the dynamic water physics. Read More

Sonic Adventure review (XBLA)

Sonic Adventure was developed by Sonic Team and published by SEGA. It was released on September 15, 2010 and retails for 800 MSP. A copy was provided for reviewing purposes.

As someone playing Sonic Adventure for the first time on Xbox Live Arcade, I can see why the game was a big deal for its time. It’s a very colorful game that moves smooth and fast, and it has respectable graphics for a game more than 10 years old. However, playing it for the first time also means the game holds no nostalgic memories for me, unlike the Sonic the Hedgehog games for the Sega Genesis. Even if it holds nostalgic value to you, I can’t see anyone playing this game today and having any fun.
