Set in the 22nd century, Zone of the Enders delivers an anime mech game with graphics that will remind those old enough to remember the graphical style of 90’s gaming. With a 3-hour story for the original game, the expansion is slightly longer and is perfectly described as “High-Speed Robot Action”.

Not a game for those who enjoy next-gen graphics, but if you fancy a bout of nostalgia or you’re a fan of Hideo Kojima, this game is perfect for you.

Samurai Shodown II – Available September 15th to September 30th

Samurai Shodown II is a fighting game developed by SNK that was originally released in 1994 as a sequel to Samurai Shodown.

With a decent number of characters to choose from, Samurai Shodown is a big step up from the original in terms of gameplay and story, but it will struggle to gain a young audience in this modern era. Graphically it is typical 90’s with vibrant colours and nice backdrops but will be unable to escape the comparison of Street Fighter, and it comes up short.

A nostalgic game for the diehard anime fighting game fans but don’t expect much more than that.
