48 hours ago a distress signal was sent from a remote research
lab studying a virulent organism identified as the "Scurge".
Bounty hunter Jenosa Arma has been sent to investigate and
salvage any research technology from within the facility.
Armed with top-secret projectile gauntlets and a prototype
battle suit capable of integrating technologies, she must
use her skills and abilities to complete her objectives on
the remote planet. However time is of the essence as she races
to nullify the Scurge coursing throughout her own body and
prevent becoming what she fears most...
appear to be a clone of Metroid Fusion at first glance
(and second glance come to think of it) but beneath the surface
there is just enough to allow this game to stand tall as a
game in it's own right. Believe me though, there are a few
too many similarities.
you hate old school games with a passion then you'll need
a lot of convincing to give Scurge Hive a chance. The
developers have opted for a very odd looking 3D effect, but
it's not done well enough to disguise the fact that if this
were 2D it would be the sort of game that you would expect
to see on the GameBoy Advance not the DS. It really does look
a little to primitive for a new release, but looks aren't
everything and the gameplay more than makes up for the lack
in aesthetics. While the animation is not as detailed as it
could have been, it would also have been nice to have had
the option to rotate the screen.
you run around the gaming environment there is some urgency
to your quest as you have to race from decontamination room
to decontamination room in order to purge your body of the
Scurge virus. This is also the only area of the game that
you can save your progress. Of course there are armies of
nasties between you and each bay and you are under immense
pressure to kill wave after wave of aliens before your time
is a good solid game but, as I mentioned before, it won't
be to everyone's taste. It might be an idea to rent this first.
