SideQuesting.com - Do you hate scrolling to the last paragraph of most reviews in order to quickly grasp whether or not you might enjoy the game in question? If so, I’ll make this one fairly quick and straight-forward for you instead. Veks and Silence, an Xbox Live Indie game, shares a lot in common with old-school games like Contra and Metal Slug. If you happen to like games like that, then I strongly suggest you play one of them instead.
In short, Veks and Silence is a somewhat competent “old-school” shooter that could have used several more passes of polish, both on its art and gameplay mechanics, and I can only truly recommend it to someone who just can’t get enough of the genre and has exhausted every other option.
