Review: Arkham Horror – The Card Game

Post has attachment
Quick simple shooter game with lots of cute characters and explosions. Bleed 2 is perfectly content being nothing other than good fun and it achieves that while making it look effortless. Great art, great audio, great dialog, great levels, great bosses.

I can’t remember if first Bleed had a 2 color system. In this one you can reflect purple bullets while having to dodge yellow. You also have a slow motion ability which is necessary for dodging some attacks (similar to Viewtiful Joe). There’s a strong focus on bosses, sometimes several in a row. But checkpoints are very generous so you don’t need to repeat much.

The game is fairly short, I beat it on Hard in about an hour. But this unlocks several characters and they all play significantly differently. For example: one character flies, and instead of having slowmo can change color to absorb either purple or yellow attacks.

If you liked Bleed and want more, this is a no brainer purchase. If you like run and gun shooters, I’d recommend playing Bleed 2 first, though they’re about the same.

Very creepy adventure game with writing so clever in sneaks up behind you. The setting starts out a little bland, but boldly evolves throughout the game... first into a supernatural nightmare and then back into even more horrific reality. Halfway through it seems impossible to make sense of all the madness, and yet the last hour effortlessly takes each story thread and ties them together into a coherent conclusion. No patronizing over explanation, just brilliant environmental storytelling.

The whole thing plays a pretty slow. It's a classroom, so the uniform doors can make it difficult to remember where everything is which leads to a lot of backtracking. Monsters are used sparingly which feels about right. It's visually unique, but the animation is a little stiff. Audio is excellent throughout. My biggest gripe is that you can't save at any time which meant I'd sometimes be stuck playing longer than I wanted if I was teleported to a new location and hadn't found a save point yet.

Nice video! Does a great job if digging into some biology/psychology that most reviews don't touch on.

A great collection of sculpture scans that are very high quality. I've always wonder how big the terracotta army figures are. One sculpture was on the cover of my Latin book in high school, so it's amazing to finally come face to face with it. Lots of well-known touchstones and a massive outdoor statue. This is a collection that would be very difficult to see IRL because they reside in so many different locations.

The upper floor was just added. It's got some interesting sculptures too. The new paintings are a big letdown despite being able to understand their scale. They have a repeating canvas pattern specular highlight, but topographically have no relation to the painting. I know it would be incredibly difficult to scan accurately, but I feel like without that element they're not worth displaying. Seeing some of Van Gogh's work in person completely changed my perspective on them and flat versions completely misrepresent them.

But, you can't beat free, and in fact you should probably donate a few dollars so they can continue to expand this awesome project.
