Review: "Destiny" - Xbox 360/PS3/PS4/Xbox One(tested)

Reviewed by Luke for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 34/100

When Destiny came in for review here at Family Friendly Gaming there was a collective groan. No one wanted to touch it. No one wanted to play it. No one wanted to review it. All of us came up with reasons why we should not be the one to review it. The EIC had all of us gather around and draw straws. I drew the short one, so I played it, and am now reviewing it.

By Rob Cook

There are many ways to be distracted these days. Companies are in an epic battle competing for our mind time. We are bombarded with media overload and we don’t seem to care. Need proof of this? Just visit any restaurant and observe your fellow diners. 7 out of 10 people will have their noses buried in their smart phones. Husbands and wives, even children, will sit at the same table in silence, glued to their screens.

Reviewed by Frank for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 82/100

There are a variety of voices out there in the video game media. A variety of things are said about video games. It is obvious to me that EA Sports listened to the voices about NHL 14. The constantly fighting hockey game was not appreciated by families. NHL 15 moves away from that.

Although no human skeletons have been found fossilized alongside the dinosaurs, many “modern” animals (which evolutionists believe did not evolve till millions of years later) have been found buried in the same rock layer with the dinosaurs.

Finding creatures like platypus, Tasmanian devils and beavers preserved with the dinosaurs presents difficulties for evolution but is in complete harmony with the creation account in Genesis.

The first book in the new Chicory Inn series introduces us to Audrey Whitman, a mother who has launched all of her children into life and now looks forward to fulfilling some of her own dreams during her empty-nest years. However, not all of her children are ready to stay out of the nest quite yet.

Arguments Evolutionists should not make!

Life would have formed somewhere in such a huge universe. Not even one average-sized functional protein would form if every atom in the universe was an experiment with all the right amino acids for every possible molecular vibration of its supposed age of 14 billion evolutionary years.

Family gamers know the hidden object genre is wide, varied, and very diverse. Many of them revolve around dark spiritual matters that never fits the theme of the game play. That is where Family Vacation 2 Road Trip comes into play. This hidden object game is about the family taking a vacation. No dark spiritual matters in this game.

Reviewed by WMG for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 60/100

Dance Central has made it to the Xbox One. Older members of the family have enjoyed this dancing game on the Xbox 360 thanks to the Kinect sensor. In order to play Dance Central Spotlight on the Xbox One you will need the Kinect Sensor 2.0. If you purchased an Xbox One without it, then this game is about worthless.
