Critical Hit Drops A Killer Nex Machina: Death Machine Review

Those of you who recall the PlayStation 4 launch might remember a particularly special digital title called Resogun. To this day, it remains one of the best pure examples of arcade goodness on the PlayStation Store.

Developer Housemarque Games went on to make a name for itself with the likes of Super Stardust and Dead Nation, always focusing on simple yet wonderfully addictive – and technically solid – arcade-style concepts. Now, they’re back with another winner and it’s an homage to old-school greats like Smash TV and Defender.

And if you’re looking for a top-notch review of the recently released Nex Machina: Death Machine to go along with the entertaining new title, we recommend checking out Critical Hit, where critic Geoffrey Tim delivered a fantastic evaluation that will tell you everything you wish to know. In addition to being accessible and well-paced, the review is candid, with a nice blend of objective analysis and subjective points. It also focuses largely on gameplay, which is the proper tactic given the game in question.

So, if you’re on the fence about this one, give it a read! This is Tim’s second nod here at VGRHQ; he was first recognized for his stellar Child of Light review.

Why We Like It:

An appreciated structure that makes the review both highly readable and enjoyable. No wasted words or irrelevant tangents.

Understands the game is all about the interactive experience; other factors like story, depth and graphics, take a back seat, and the review text reflects that.

Explains succinctly what makes the game worthy of our time and money, and why it deserves consideration. Not all reviews manage to do this properly.
