Axiom Verge 

 

Video game companies are constantly morphing and changing their franchises. They add new game play element, go from 2D to 3D, and more. Sometimes we gamers want to play something familiar. Sometimes we yearn for more games from a certain era. As these large video game companies march to make billions off of us they leave things behind. This is where indie video games come into play.

Axiom Verge is like a darker 16-bit Metroid video game. It is on the Playstation 4, Playstation Vita, and Personal Computer. Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download code for Axiom Verge on the Playstation 4. Players are required to shoot the various enemies multiple times in Axiom Verge. The enemies explode in a gory, gross, and disgusting mess. Sometimes they leave behind what looks like blood. Which is what heals our characters health.

The story in Axiom Verge starts out showing all kinds of promise. Eventually it slows down until I nearly forgot there was a story. Bosses have massive amounts of health, and require technique to defeat. Axiom Verge is a video game only for the adult members of the family. After playing Axiom Verge I was more aggressive, and impatient. I can tell Axiom Verge influenced my mood and attitude.

Like Metroid we explore in Axiom Verge. There are constantly obstacles in our way. So we need to find the tool that allows us to get past the obstacle. Axiom Verge can get frustrating. I noticed a couple of instances where I would bring up the map and see where I needed to go next. Not sure I had to go, I went all around checking each area seeing if I could finally get through. Or where there had been a fork in the road so to speak.

Axiom Verge is huge. It does the genre justice with its size alone. The retro graphics are cool if you are into retro games. If not, you will probably complain about how grainy and pixelated things are. The bad language was not needed and hurts Axiom Verge. The difficulty of Axiom Verge is up there. Expect to die - often. Axiom Verge respawns players back at the last save keeping their map progress.
