Axiom Verge: the game that almost captures Metroid's magic ... but not quite

Emulating one of the greatest games of all time can be a challenge, but it's hard not to have respect for anyone attempting it. That's how I feel about Axiom Verge, a 2D action-adventure game that's clearly heavily inspired by Nintendo's Metroid series.

I invited Nick Robinson to take a look at some footage of the game's early levels while I explained to him where it succeeds and where it falls short. Check it out above, and read my full review right here.
