    There are some great ideas here, with clever use of the dual screens, but the game in which they find themselves is far less entertaining than it should be.

    Fractured Soul is not a bad game by any means, but its keen concept is played out again and again with a taskmaster's sternness, and little else.

    With generic platforming and a generally unpolished feel, the novelty wears off quickly, and Fractured Soul is best left out in space.

    Maybe there's a great game beyond level 8. Maybe it turns into peaches and honey. Maybe a magical unicorn bursts from the screen. Who knows? After playing a single level beyond any possibility of ever getting any enjoyment from it again, I turned the game off and walked away. Gameplay masochism only stays enjoyable so long before a feeling best described as "screw this!" sets in, and Fractured Soul blew past that point and never looked back.

    If you like challenges and are a masochist, this game is for you. Very well designed, but I haven't put a lot of time into it due to the fact that its insanely difficult. Full Review »

    This game is one tough game to beat. So don't buy this game if you get frustrated when you lose. This game is for pros. One thing why this game is for pros is because you have to look up and down most of the time. Then there are also lots of enemies and hard places to pass. If you played the older version of fractured soul you can see that the 3ds version is redesigned and looks better. This new version has some new features through. One new feature is the leaderboards. This is to show how fast they can beat this selected level. Also, if you want some more challenge, try the bonus levels. You can get them by getting lots of stars. Getting a 5 star is really tough. It's even more harder than playing the game without it! There are only 3 bosses in this game. If you want a challenge then this is a game you should play. Full Review »
