Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Stormlord'

Rating:3 User: Rebelstar Without a Cause

This game makes me sad because it should've been great. There's no denying that Stormlord looks absolutely fantastic, featuring some of the best graphics seen in a spectrum title. The controls are responsive and for a while everything is good. But then you hit some ridiculous difficulty spikes and it ruins the game. Somebody should've told Raf Cecco that being rushed by hordes of enemies that you can't avoid isn't any fun. It's not a challenge, it's just bad game design. But I guess by then he'd become such a star that his co-workers were too much in awe of him to offer any criticism. It could've been great. It should've been great. But it's just ok.
