Review: Xotic

14 Dec

The concept was sound: combining the drive for a high score seen in arcade games with the intensity of a first-person shooter. The execution and end result probably looked better on paper than it actually turned out. Xotic (pronounced “Exotic”, because E’s are apparently overrated) is an indie Xbox 360 title that attempts to blend the above mentioned genres together, but instead shows us why some things don’t mix as planned.



I have to give the game credit: it certainly does try something different. But as I say in the review, this is a good example of two gameplay mechanics just going against one another. The game does have some shining moments however, and for those it’s worth looking into a bit.

Full review is over at Machinima’s blog.
