On tonight's episode of X-Play, we review one of the best games ever played: Resident Evil 4. Plus, don't miss out on some not-so-happy zombies coming to X-Play for extra work, thanks to the zombie-shortage in Resident Evil 4.
We are jaded. Can you blame us? If you had to wade through piles of crap like Aquaman and Drake of the 99 Dragons week after week you’d be just as skeptical. But every once in a while a game comes along that turns the entire X-Play staff on its ear until we’re sharing bleary-eyed war stories the next morning. Resident Evil 4 is one of those games. Filled with more memorable moments than 90 percent of all the games from last year put together, Resident Evil 4 is simply one of the greatest action-adventure games of all time.
There’s violence, and there’s The Punisher. Starring in the most gruesomely violent console game to date, this one will test your appetite for destruction. Not only can you hand-cannon your way through the various levels, carelessly firing bullets into anyone and anything, but often you’ll be able to use interrogation techniques that are so violent it will surprise even the most hardcore gamers. Is the violence justified? Strangely, yes.
Virtua Quest knows that it’s not really real, and so does X-Play. But the main character is pretty clueless. In his video game world, he’s logged into his own futuristic virtual reality Internet called Nexus, exploring servers to collect lost data and beating up digital bad guys with kung-fu moves borrowed from Sega’s excellent Virtua Fighter series. The concept is interesting, but the execution is barely passable.
The most humiliating game on the PlayStation 2, Karaoke Revolution Volume 3 is a fantastic experience that builds solidly on its predecessors. Slicker in every way, this latest version adds 37 new tracks and the ability to co-star on the virtual stage with a friend in duet mode. Perfect for small parties, or to put your shower singing to the test, this game undoubtedly rocks.
