Shadow Complex is Super Metroid on Steroids
Wow, there’s alot to love here. Not only does the gameplay remind me of the ‘Metroidvania’ that I’ve grown to love since it’s inception with the original Metroid, but it has some serious Contra elements thrown in the mix. Chair Entertainment is going to be a household name for gamers once this game drops on August 19th for 1200 MSP ($15).
The script for the game is written by none other than Peter David (google him kids, one of the best comic writers ever) and is based on Orson Scott Card’s (Ender’s Game bitches!) novel Empire. That’s a whole bunch of talent attached to one game…especially an XBLA game. Man I can’t wait.
