|The grand reboot of the Ratchet & Clank franchise kicked off this|
sci-fi-centered month of games. It's SuperPhillip Central's Game of the Month.
It was a bit of a science fiction-themed month for the most part here at SuperPhillip Central. The Game of the Month was Ratchet & Clank, a stunning platformer in both gameplay and visuals, getting a great A grade. The latest chapter in the Star Ocean series, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness went a little too old school for my tastes, earning a C+, While this next game had a promising premise, Obliteracers unfortunately became more frustrating than fun. Sadly, I had to give it a D+ grade. Following that game was a return to the lombax and robot pair with Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal, a retro review that scored an A-.
Then, another vehicular combat game, Cel Damage HD, managed to be a smashing good time, blasting and hammering its way to a C+. The Skylanders took center stage following that review with Skylanders SuperChargers, which was a fantastic game for kids and adults, getting a B+. Finally, the sci-fi fixation at SuperPhillip Central continued with the final review of the month, Metroid Prime: Federation Force. I surprisingly found a lot to like about the game despite still wanting a traditional Metroid. It earned a B.
Did you know that SuperPhillip Central is at 698 reviews? We're almost at 700, and just in time for the conclusion of summer! Hey, I called it the Summer of 700 for a reason, folks! I have a big game to review for #700, so please look forward to that and more in September!

|I guess my other problem with Metroid Prime: Federation Force is why us North Americans got the inferior box art!|
