MONSTER HUNTER FREEDOM UNITE for iOS Review

Review CAPCOM By Alex Beech, 1 month, 3 weeks ago
MONSTER HUNTER FREEDOM UNITE for iOS Review

When starting Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for iOS, it helps to know what you're getting into. It promises you the chance to bring down monstrous creatures in a fantasy equivalent of big game hunting, but it makes you work for every moment of enjoyment. Before heading into the field you have to familiarise yourself with the basics. As a port of a PSP title, there are a lot of controls crammed onto your touchscreen. The result is confusing mash of context dependent virtual st…

Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD Review

Review CAPCOM By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD Review

It's been over two years since Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney was released on the App Store, and fans have been eagerly awaiting the next two chapters in this trilogy ever since. Well the good news is that And Justice For All and Trails and Tribulations have arrived as part of the Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD. The bad news is that while the graphics have been sharpened up, there are a few niggling issues that do bring the whole experience down a little. The games ar…

STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN MOBILE  Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN MOBILE  Review

In only three short months STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN (SFxTK) has undergone a transition from its true home on Consoles and PCs to the mobile platform. Fighter fans may take exception to my wording there, but fear not, Street Fighter on iOS has (to date) been adapted almost perfectly for touch-screen devices. SFxTK is no exception to this and indeed it places even more emphasis on its ‘versus’ modes than ever before - sure you can enjoy the game single-player, but if you have…

MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 2 Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 2 Review

CAPCOM generally doesn't skimp on the details when it comes to its fighting game releases on the App Store. It seems almost counter-intuitive to think a serious fighting game could be successful on a small touch-screen, but Street Fighter IV has shown that it's not only possible, but also a lot of fun. As such it's almost unfortunate for Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 to feel as rushed as it does, suffering from bloated controls on smaller iDevices and visuals that looked muddied thanks to poor…

GHOST TRICK: Phantom Detective Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
GHOST TRICK: Phantom Detective Review

CAPCOM’s tenure on the iOS platform has been very hit or miss, with some games failing to live up to the grandeur of the original, while others almost outshine them. GHOST TRICK: Phantom Detective was arguably the unsung hero of 2011 for the Nintendo DS and thanks to a top-notch adaption, the iOS release also has an opportunity to shine. Sharing the same creative mind that developed the Ace Attorney series, Phantom Detective is no less madcap and outlandish. You play as Sissel,…

MEGA MAN X Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
MEGA MAN X Review

It seems that Capcom isn't able to catch a break when it comes to the reviewers assigned to their Mega Man franchise titles on the App Store - while Mega Man 2 is Dave's favorite from the series (at least on its original console), Mega Man X was (and still is) my personal favorite. With this in mind the iOS release of the title was more than welcome and still a blast to play through, but like so many of the developers releases on the App Store it suffers for its disregard of the platfo…

STREET FIGHTER IV VOLT Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
STREET FIGHTER IV VOLT Review

As I consider CAPCOM’s latest Street Fighter title for iOS I can’t help but drag my eyes across the room to the two arcade sticks I have for playing the console version with my friends. While there’s a lot of fun to be had in mastering characters offline, the real magic happens when two people go head-to-head and although last year’s iOS version provided local multiplayer, players can now take their fight to a global level with STREET FIGHTER IV Volt. In additi…

MONSTER HUNTER Dynamic Hunting Review

MONSTER HUNTER Dynamic Hunting Review

Editor's Note: The review was originally posted with a score of 3.4 - this was done in error and has since been corrected to 3.6. While at times we may modify scores due to updates (replaying them to confirm the changes), this was simply a case of human error and we apologize for the confusion. It's safe to say that the Monster Hunter series has a lot of fans with the complex gameplay revolving around improving yourself as a hunter by learning about and finally defeating your prey. Fo…

Resident Evil Mercenaries VS. Review

Things have been looking a little rough in camp CAPCOM for a while now and although attempting to create an online competitive experience using the Resident Evil franchise may have sounded a little odd, it was a rich nugget of gaming worth exploring if only to break new ground. The inclusion of social-like features in their mobile games (e.g. Dead Rising) has reached its logical conclusion with Resident Evil Mercenaries VS. and players can now duke it out against each other (and zombie…

Devil May Cry 4 refrain Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Devil May Cry 4 refrain Review

Almost 3 years ago to the day US gamers were able to play CAPCOM's fourth title in the Devil May Cry series on major consoles. While still not as critically acclaimed as the original Playstation 2 brawler, it carried on the traditions of the series while adding a fresh twist to the gameplay. Now iOS gamers can also get their hands on 'Devil May Cry 4 refrain', but with its diminished graphics, gameplay and storyline it's a far cry from the devilish title it could be. Players are given…

DEAD RISING MOBILE Review

When you're stuck in a mall, surrounded by zombies and you're left with a mysterious letter that warns you of 15 super zombies responsible for the mess, then you're probably playing out another day in the life of Frank West, freelance journalist extraordinaire. DEAD RISING MOBILE by CAPCOM attempts to boil down the manic fun of its bigger console brother, but its shortcomings become apparent early on and it never manages to switch gears despite some interesting social features. Taking…

CAPCOM ARCADE Review

If you spent any time at an arcade in the 80s or 90s or you have immense personal luck of having a classic arcade remaining open in your area, then you should already be familiar with the lineup of CAPCOM ARACDE as it sports a classic quartet of titles that are likely to have devoured your spare change in the past. Players can choose from four basic titles, opting to spend their in-game tokens on Street Fighter 2, Ghouls 'N Ghosts, 1942 or Commando. Three free tokens are handed out ev…

GHOSTS'N GOBLINS GOLD KNIGHTS II Review

Take a back seat Lancelot, Perceval is in the house! CAPCOM have brought back the Ghosts'n Goblins (GNG) franchise for yet another spin with Gold Knights 2 making its way on to the App Store.  There was certainly a lot of room for improvement after the last outing, especially as it boiled down to being a fairly ugly and difficult to control re-imagining of the original game. One of the first improvements for Gold Knights 2 is the inclusion of a virtual stick to replace the tragic…

Phoenix Wright Review

Phoenix Wright for your iPhone? Heck yeah! In keeping up with adapting games for the App Store, CAPCOM have released their iconic adventure series to the iPhone, utilizing a modified version of the Nintendo DS release. Much like the DS version, the game is touch driven through menus though some changes have occurred to make better use of the iPhone's limited screen space. Instead of simple select menus, most require you to hold your finger down to open up and scroll to the various opt…

STREET FIGHTER IV Review

Review CAPCOM By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
STREET FIGHTER IV Review

If you're going to make a fighting game for the iphone, you best be sure you get the controls right, especially if multiplayer is involved. Street Fighter IV by Capcom has been released on the touch device and it's amazing how faithful it is to the proper arcade/console version. Control is all touch based, using an on screen joystick and four buttons with the touch controls being very responsive. This reviewer had trouble pulling off special moves when needed, but has always had that…
