Review 1 for Insecticide
Ironically for a game called Insecticide, this game is crawling with bugs. And not the characters in the story, I'm talking glitchy controls and just problems all around. The game looks like it was a first generation title for the PS1. It's absolutely horrible. I'm a HUGE fan of this guy because of Psychonauts but this game is NOTHING like it. Seriously. Personally I'd stay away. This was bad. One of the MAJOR problems though is how dark the game is. The game goes for a noir feel by attempting to make everything super dark. I actually had to wait for it to get dark and than click all the lights off to see this game without my eyes killing me, it's THAT dark. It's so dark you'll actually forget the DS is backlit. Also the game is ridiculously short. True story, I FINALLY got used to the controls and than about 5 minutes later I fought the end boss. Seriously. I had done everything, found all the power ups, did the whole game in like an hour. It's nonsense. Boo on this game.

I can't wait!
You just know a game will be awesome when it has something to do with LucasArts! So I expect a lot for the ex LucasArts developers of Crackpot Entertainment. Already it seems like Insecticide will be a lot like Psychonauts, which means it looks great!
