Week in Arcade: Pacific Rim

pacificrim

Wednesday was an Arcade void, so Friday slips a $10 release to save us.

Pacific Rim

Developer Yukes mashes together uber robots and keenly designed giant monsters for this summer movie fighting game adaptation. Calling upon the goofiness of previous generation’s underrated success, Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee, this bulky rumble fest performs adequately to recall enormity present in the feature. While boxed up in the frame of a $10 download, Pacific Rim is cleanly built upon smooth framework that satisfies to punch creatures in the face. Online is bolstered with clan set-ups and individual levels. Fans of the flick will find none of the character, but all of the action.
