Sparklite is one of those games that can take you an hour or a year to complete! If you are a fan of the top-down action games of old, then you’re going to especially love this game! The joy of it as I said in my intro, is that it is clearly inspired by but not a gimmicky copy of the classic Zelda games.
In a genre of game that sets the bar quite high, Race With Ryan is a disappointment if taken at face value, but the plus point is that it’s aimed at the very young gamer and their families, so it is making kart racing to a wider demographic then usual.
Overall, I had a pleasantly surprising experience with Bee Simulator. I enjoyed the tone of the game, the art style and the depth to the level design. I liked being able to explore a world from a different perspective, investigating all the different nooks and crannies this game has to offer.
If you did not play the original, and are a fan of the Ghostbusters franchise, then perhaps add it on your Xbox wishlist for when it’s on offer… if nothing else, you get to spend a few hours with Ackroyd, Murray, Ramis & Hudson hunting for ghosts and enjoying all of that ghostbuster-y banter!
I take no joy in slating a game. Particularly when it’s from a smaller developer who has likely spent a large percentage of the budget into the game. But I cannot emphasise any more how poor an effort this is. Across the board. Do not waste your money on this title.
