Aqua Pazza is best described as an Anime-Fighter with Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 like controls. This game is pretty easy to pick up but does involve a little skill to string together combos. This game also has a story mode, actually it has two story modes. While I didn’t care enough for it to check out the second story attached to each character, I think that BlazBlu’s story is a lot better. If you are looking for a fairly easy fighter to get into then get it, but I would advise against it.
We reviewed Madden 25 on Xbox 360, now it’s out for Xbox One and here are our thoughts. Madden 25 on Xbox One is a different monster when it comes to gameplay, A.I defenders are smarter and so are you A.I. linemen. It brings a more realistic feel when you see players planting to make a cut unlike on Xbox 360. However there are some downsides to the Xbox One version, for one the graphics suffer a bit. By suffer I mean that you notice some scanlines and some of the lighting effects that have gone awry. They also took out the Game Face feature for your created player, coach and owner. While everything else stays the same. If you got rid of your Xbox 360 and that copy of Madden 25 and don’t mind seeing some graphical issues, pick it up.
When I loaded Call Of Duty: Ghosts for Xbox One I could immediately tell the difference. Sure, gameplay hasn’t changed from the Xbox 360 version but the graphics are a bit sharper and shinier. Multiplayer on Xbox One is still a very smooth and enjoyable experience. I noticed while I was using a wireless connection that I was able to connect to a match in a fairly good amount of time. Overall, I would say to pick this game up if you’re a fan of the Call Of Duty Franchise.
FIFA 14 for Xbox One looks and plays great. It a little change graphically from Xbox 360 which we reviewed earlier but the gameplay has changed with the introduction of the Ignite engine. I also enjoyed the new presentation that we saw a little of on Xbox 360 but there are less in game cut scenes which adds to the flow of the game and brings more realism. I also have to mention that unlike Madden 25, they kept the Game Face feature in the game and it looks great. No scanlines and it doesn’t look like your hair is afraid to touch your scalp. This game is an improvement and should be picked up if you like soccer games.
*Aqua Pazza, Call Of Duty: Ghosts and FIFA 14 were all sent to us by their respective publishers for our consideration. Madden 25 was bought at retail*
