We reviewed Puppeteer

We reviewed Puppeteer

You know the drill now, we were sent the review code of Puppeteer about a week ago and we barely had time to finish our French review of the game. That being said, there was no way we were not going to talk about this fantastic game, so head inside to read our verdict and check out our videos.



Verdict


There are so many reasons why you should buy Puppeteer and so few to convince you not to that you need to give it a chance. Most of you guys are obviously eagerly waiting for the release of GTA V in less than 2 weeks, thinking it's going to be one of the biggest hit of this end of year, and you're most certainly right about that. However that shouldn't prevent you from experiencing the magic of this new game by Sony Japan Studios. First and foremost, it's a great platformer, with excellent gameplay mechanics, amazing art style and very good storytelling. It's also a game you can enjoy on your own or share with your girlfriend or your kid, depending on your mood. Finally, it comes at such a cheap price that it's a slap in the face for all the mediocre titles which are sold at full price. Puppeteer is one of these games that made Playstation what it is today. It's unique, great fun, gorgeous and it proves that no matter what, the PS3 still has a lot to offer in the months to come.

My game of the Year so far. SoGood.jpg Cheek2cheek smile throughout the entire game. The game is constantly changing and leaves the player wondering what is around the corner.

Glad you liked it Driftwood.

Playing it with my daughter is an awesome experience. She's using the Move controller, it's not just a collect the moonstones (Mario Galaxy style), the 2nd player can attack enemies, search for items and assist with collection heads. The 2nd player can jump in at any point.

I am getting interested in Indies as I like to finish a game rather than GTA games which is too big and boring after sometime
