2.5D Games
« on: October 02, 2016, 20:48:57 PM »
The guys from GameSack have a look at games that are not 3D but are not 2D either.  So, they are 2.5D!  Have a watch and enjoy!

Some cool titles in that list. I hope they cover it again with more.
I'm grabbing G Darius to take for a spin. Looks cool and reminds of the PS1 RType game. Nice graphics 8)

Yes indeed.  They may make a follow up video with more titles but it may be a while before that happens.

Darius games are great, love the huge bosses! You should check out Dariusburst: Chronicle Saviours on the PS4. It's kinda like a greatest hits of Darius games and has a ton of content. It's a little expensive for a download only game but they put it on sale once in a while.

Holiday sale on PSN right now (Canada and US only it seems) has that Darius game for 50% off if you guys didn't grab it yet. Great price for a great game :) The Vita version is also on sale which I don't have. . . might have to double dip here!

Interesting video, I especially liked the coverage of Puppeteer and Darius. However, if someone is going to all the trouble of talking about 2.5D then a mention of one of the first and best 2.5D games ever would have been nice. Of course, I am talking about the original arcade game from 1983 which, was re-released on the XBOX, PS2, PC, XBOX 360, Dreamcast and tablet. Yes, the title that launched the career of one of our favourite game characters, Bentley Bear (featured in Wreck-it-Ralph) in the game Crystal Castles! :)
