During my time as a gamer I’ve been an avid Nintendo gamer. Almost all of the video games ‘Big N’ releases are of stellar quality and deliver an experience like no other. Also Nintendo’s second party companies like HAL Laboratory manage to create games of high quality. HAL’s biggest franchise is of course the Kirby-one. This article will feature two of the games from that particular franchise. One which is pretty good and the other which is pretty bad, while both games are more or less execute the same concept on a different platform. Wanna find out what I am talking about?
Back in the beginning of 2013 I was a young ambitious writer. I kept my writing skills up to par by occasionally writing some video game reviews. One of these games I played was Bioshock Infinite. And silly me wrote a review about the game after only finishing a quarter of it. Such a shame, because the game is a masterpiece! Well, I discovered that when I started playing it again last week. And boy what a great move that was.
We’re going back to the late year 2000 when top down racing game Micro Maniacs for the Sony Playstation, also known as Fox Kids.com Micro Maniacs Racing in North America, was released. With all eyes on the newly released Playstation 2, there were still some games, albethey quite overlooked, that came out for Sony’s predecessor. Micro Maniacs is such a game as it was a spinoff and spiritual successor of the Micro Machines series. Compared to the rest of the series this time the player controls one of the twelve characters instead of a miniature vehicle and together they run against each other in different spectacular household settings. So think about it as the Micro Machines games you all know so well, but then without the cars. Sounds fun, right?
