As the market and our personal catalogs are increasingly filled with games that are focused on being the pinnacle of realism or visual fidelity or artistry, the idea of what makes games fun can often get lost in the pursuit of other ideals. Rock of Ages 2, much like its predecessor, is thankfully not interested in being anything other than whimsically fun, presented against a backdrop of utter absurdity. There is indeed very little about the game which is rooted in reality, which is a refreshing change of pace from the endless line of military shooters and major visual showcases from big publishers. Are you interested in accurate combat simulations? Do you crave high stakes, competitive gameplay?
The Deadly Tower of Monsters answers the question you all didn’t know you wanted answered, “what if you could play though a movie with director’s commentary in real time?” Well, ACE Team has made that possible with The Deadly Tower of Monsters, a game set around a low budget 50s sci-fi film. Thankfully, unlike most campy low budget films, The Deadly Tower of Monsters is quite good.
