    Each of the areas you’ll traverse in Scurge feel like they’ve simply had a box of random enemies shaken into it, all making a sudden focused beeline toward you the minute you set foot in the room. [Nov 2006, p.92]

    The major control issues are a hurdle many gamers won’t want to overcome. They ruin what would be an otherwise fun game.

Keep inScurge: Hive really is one of the best DS games that you've certainly never heard of. Its a fantastic combination of action/rpg. Keep in mind that this game was originally made for the GBA and was ported over to the DS so it really doesnt use the touch screen for anything except to display the map. And i should also mention the music, its one of the best soundtracks that i've heard on the DS, no joking. My only real complaint (and the reason the game would have easily scored an 8 or 9) would be that the story is a STRAIGHT RIP OF METROID, so 0 points for story originality, but other than that, its a really stellar game. OH! and did i also mention that you can buy it BRAND NEW for $10 at gamestop? Yup, $10. If i had paid the full $30 it would have been money well spent, but for $10 this is practically a steal. A massively underrated but very good game. Full Review »
