It was my pleasure to get to play Nucleus on the Sony Playstation 3. I had our awesome editor in chief Paul Bury oversee the download since it bored me to tears. Sony really needs to get a clue as to when it comes to an online download system. Microsoft has done a nice job, followed by Nintendo improving theirs every month. Sony just seems to arrogantly be doing whatever we gamers do not want. The player gets to be some weird little creature that has to collect certain items, avoid enemies, and then blast them to bits all on the television screen.

The graphics are sadly pretty dark and dank. Nothing says hiding poor graphics by keeping it dark. This graphical mistake seems to go along with a theme of the game. The music is also pretty eerie and irritating (editor: at least to this reviewer). There are set levels that Sony expects the player to beat, and then they can move on to the next level. There really is no reason to replay levels. This game can be purchased for a few dollars via a credit card - what about those of us who do not deal with those snakes (credit card companies)? In this reviewers ever so humble opinion this game is not worth your money.

The shining star within this dark video game is the gameplay. Nucleus controls well, and handles quite nicely. There was looseness that caused quite a few deaths while I was playing the game. I was able to adapt to the minor problem, and handle it - just want you guys to have a fair warning.

There are different interpretations as to what the player is attacking/killing in this game. Some would say the player is killing off viruses in a fantasy setting. Other would say it is just another example of consistent use of violence in video games to make up for a lack of real innovation from video game developers. Either way you go, the decision is up to you.
