Centipede Infestation 

 

How many of our reviews reference E3? It seems that as the years stretch on, there are more and more reviews that reference something one of us saw at E3. Centipede Infestation is a game I remember from E3. Atari brought this franchise into this century, and onto the Nintendo 3DS. We are very thankful we are allowed the opportunity to review this title.

Centipede Infestation reminds me of Smash TV. We can shoot, left, right, forward, and back. These are done with the different buttons. The 'L' button lets us stomp to trigger switches and stun nearby enemies. The touch screen is used to turn on a power-up. I wish those power-ups lasted a little longer, especially when the centipedes start to roll through the levels. The majority of Centipede Infestation is shooting these bugs. So it is violent, but focused on pests.

The music in Centipede Infestation is odd. At first I thought I was going into some horror film. Then the music changed, and was a little more techno. It never quite got to happy in my opinion. The audio between the characters is interesting, and enhances the story aspects of this Nintendo 3DS title. Which helps carry this game.

I kept playing levels in Centipede Infestation because of the storyline aspects. The game play is something I will get into in the next paragraph. Centipede Infestation includes a nice array of unlockable content. There are videos, galleries, music, additional characters and more. Atari hit a home run in terms of extras and replay.

The game play in Centipede Infestation starts out okay. We move around, shoot everything, and then move to the next level. Around level seven this starts to get monotonous. Little bugs, big bugs, little bugs, medium size bugs, centipede. Lets make it harder and do it all over again. Throw in things like wasps, and tripping switches from time to time. At this point the sheer repetitive nature started to take hold. Centipede Infestation needed to shake things up with some variety more often - especially in longer levels.

The various power ups were interesting, and made me feel like an exterminator. Especially things like the flame thrower. It made me feel like I was cleaning out an infestation of mutated monster size insects. Parents need to be aware that the violent nature of Centipede Infestation can easily lead to increased aggression. Different characters have different feelings about the violence which is fascinating to see inside this 3DS game.
