New Feature: Bytica 360°

This is the first of what I’m planning as a regular feature here: not quite a review, but impressions based off my first few hours with a game. As a reviewer, there was always a balancing act where you wanted to review a game thoroughly but you didn’t want to wait a week to post impressions, hence the title: “360 minutes.”

A lot of the time, 80% of what you need to know about a game comes in the first few hours of gameplay, so while these aren’t official “reviews,” so to speak, I’m looking at this as a way to present fairly in-depth impressions of games without having to wait a week … or pretend that I’ve actually finished the game and tested every last feature (which, sadly, most publications do). You can see the first one, for Guitar Hero: Smash Hits, above this post.
