Saints Row 2 to feature mini game called ‘Zombie Uprising’

It looks as if Saints Row 2 has something of a hidden gem in the form of an integrated mini game called ‘Zombie Uprising’. GameSpot notes that “Rather than a retro arcade game, this is actually a fully 3D zombie game that applies the look and feel of the regular game to a darker, more zombie-filled setting. In it you need to survive wave after wave of undead with a limited number of weapons and fellow survivors.” They add that it is like a poor man’s Left 4 Dead but believe it shows there is so much out there you can do in the game if you looking around.

Star Wars: Force Unleashed is decent but far from perfect

IGN has posted up its review of Star Wars Force Unleashed and has awarded it a decent rating and score of 7.3/10. It seems to be a mixture of great things and poor things, which leaves them admitting that the game is far from perfect. Uninspiring level design and tedious enemy battles really take their toll on the promising aspects of the game. Moreover, the game lacks real long lasting appeal as it can last for around 8-10 hours even if you don’t rush but its worth a go if you’re a Star Wars fan.
