    It's not a horrible game by any means, but it's certainly not a fully realized idea based on what's been shown in this first of three titles.

    I first played this game at Gamescon and really appreciated it. Sideway is a new genre of 2D platformer.
    I bought it recently and went
    through the game in about 4 to 6 hours. Worth the 10 bucks I spent on. Full Review »

    Wrapping a sidescrolling game around the edges of buildings and rooftops is really original and stays fresh for the whole game. The look of the game is really stylish and the music fits well. There's lots of upgrades that make your dude really strong as you progress through the game and the levels challenge you to use what you've learned at a good pace. Every level also has 5 secrets which are often hidden behind much tougher puzzles than you find in the first playthrough. A great exclusive for the PS3 platform. Full Review »

    Awesome game! Moving around in the levels is absolutely mesmerizing. I'm about half-way through, but once I finish I'm sure I'm gonna be retracing all the levels to collect everything (yes, I'm a trophy-whore :) ) Full Review »
