Game Review: ‘PowerSlave Exhumed’

February 10, 2022

Written by Daniel S. Liuzzi

Nightdive Studios and Throwback Entertainment are back with another classic game for modern players, this time a classic FPS from 1996 that takes players to pixilated Egypt where they must halt an alien invasion and help the spirit of King Ramses defeat the growing evil that’s about to be unleashed on the world! A bit shoutout to Nightdive and Throwback for the reviewing opportunity!

 

 

 

 

In PowerSlave Exhumed the controls are optimized for modern controllers, luckily there’s a lull at the start of the game that can allow you to play around with the controls to get a feel of the layout. Other than that, this game is a fun callback for those of us who grew up playing FPS games like Wolfenstein and DOOM on MS-DOS. The soundtrack, sound effects, (4k) graphics of pixilated violence, it’s everything old-school gamers loved from our humble beginnings. I hope that gamers not familiar with these kinds of games will give PowerSlave Exhumed a try as it is fun to play!

PowerSlave Exhumed is a delightful pixilated trip down memory lane, I give it a 10/10! The game is out today for PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.
