Exception – Xbox One Review

Our Xbox One Review of Exception

Exception is a title that I hadn’t heard anything about before taking it on, so for me, I was going into a game with no knowledge whatsoever, and for some games that`s good. I`ve had some titles that I`ve really enjoyed. I`ve had some titles that I`ve absolutely hated. It`s one of the beauties of reviewing. Over the past week, I`ve had the chance to get my hands on a new title, called Exception. Exception is a platformer where you must jump into a computer system that has been hacked by a virus – sounds thrilling! How was it going to fare though? I must say, I`ve really enjoyed it so far.

Exception is developed and published by Traxmaster Software and is a platformer title. Across a series of levels, you`ll need to jump into a computer system which has been infected by a virus and wipe out all the bugs that appear to terrorize the system. Getting to points that`ll literally at times turn the system upside down, you`ll need to clear through each level before progressing onto the next one, whilst upgrading your arsenal in order to wipe out the bugs that appear throughout.

What I like very on about the game, is that it`s not a game that`s going to be difficult. There are going to be some moments that are challenging, some of the bosses can be a little bit unforgiving, but it`s not a game that`s going to cause too much problems in terms of picking up the controls. You`ll notice that early in the game.

I love the concept in general. I like the way the game has been planned out, and the levels are good and fun and gripping. I found myself enjoying my way through the levels, wiping out enemies and getting to points to rotate the level around (Which I think is a really cool feature – the way it moves the  level about and can rotate it around – I really like the way it`s been done) and also upgrading my character`s abilities. The further you progress through the game, it will start to become a bit more challenging. That`s a good thing though. There needs to be moments that offer a challenge to the player because otherwise it`s base concept would although be fun, would probably get quite tedious after a while I imagine. The bosses at the end of certain levels offer a good challenge and mix it up a bit.

The gameplay is where the main focus has gone into, and whilst the story is not particularly very following and very focused, the gameplay is the key element of a game in my opinion, and although a story in certain games needs to be there, with a game like Exception, it doesn’t need to be.

Exception is not a game that is going to ask a lot of you, and its not a game that`s going to be too challenging. It is a fun platformer that gives you a good variety in the levels and offers a unique platformer to play through. It`s not a game that`s going to make you think wow, and it`s not a game that you`re going to get lots of replay value out of, but it`s a game that does offer you something fun and enjoyable, and at just over a tenner for the UK folk, it is fully worth the pickup and purchase. Traxmaster have done very well with it.
