Castle of Illusion came out about a month ago and we didn't really have time to talk about it. Well, that's not the only reason why we had to wait actually. The PC version was frame-locked at 30 fps when the game was released so we decided we wouldn't capture any gameplay footage until someone found a way to unlock it. It eventually happened but then we got so busy with the new releases that we couldn't take care of it before today. Hopefully, you'll forgive the long delay and enjoy our 1080p/60fps videos.
Castle of Illusion's main problem is that it is too short, even though this new edition of the all time classic is a bit longer than the original. Length aside, the developers of Sega Australia have really pulled it off, although the PC port is strangely locked at 30 fps - which can however be arranged by using a tweaked exe of the game. You can tell these guys are real fans of the Genesis title and that's clearly why it hasn't lost the magic of the original game. That being said, only you can decide whether or not it deserves its price tag. Some will probably think nostalgia is worth a few bucks, others will claim it's too much for 2 to 3 hours of gameplay. As for us, we had great fun playing Castle of Illusion and we were happy to see that it clearly did not sully the good name of its ancestor, quite the contrary.
Loading taking too long? Why not buy a shorter loading bar!! (14 minutes ago)
And plenty of those examples are online PVP games too. Quake Champions probably isn't one of them :D (6 Hours ago)
@MrWhite: No, not really. There are loads of examples of games with microtransactions that don't influence the game design or pollute the basic user experience. (6 Hours ago)
Could you imagine back when arena shooters like Q3A were very popular, and the cunts introduced pay to win bollocks like EA, 2k, Activision et al are doing? Imagine what that would have done. (8 Hours ago)
meanwhile on the other end, some kid who just bought the game is playing as Wigan, but they're playing like Real Madrid and giving your superstars a tanking. Time to dip into your pocket to buy packs (8 Hours ago)
Online play is so heavily scripted, your team inexplicably feels like a bunch of fat pub players in a sunday league side, and you're supposed to be in control of world class athletes (8 Hours ago)
I mean, if you look at Fifa online, I've been saying for years that thing is a fix and my mates looked at me like I was mental. (8 Hours ago)
