Conclusion: Un moment sympa à passer ? Oui. Des frustrations par moment ? Egalement. Les défauts cités n'auraient pu être que secondaires si Elite Forces : Unit 77 avait eu les moyens de se payer une dose suffisante d'originalité. Ce n'est malheureusement pas le cas, et c'est avec un certain regret que nous classerons ce titre parmi ceux dont on oubliera le nom assez vite. Dommage, tant d'un point de vue graphique, le soft apportait satisfaction.
Pros: Des graphismes loin d'être moches, Diriger un escadron de soldats en mission
Cons: Une représentation visuelle pas très confortable, Une replay value quasi-inexistante, Maniabilité énervante par moments, IA pas toujours au poil
Excerpt: Elite forces: Unit 77 is an action-driven, squad based-shooter exclusively for the Nintendo DS. A series of mysterious disappearances of high profile personalities from the worlds of science, industry, and entertainment, reveal a horrific global terrorist threat. With the clock running and the lives of the hostages and millions of others in danger, the international community’s last hope lies with an extremely covert and highly specialized military team: Unit 77.
Conclusion: Kid Factor: The kid-appropriateness is what put me off the game the most. I am not looking for a realistic game when I boot up my Nintendo DS. Most of the enemies found in the game are human agents (sure, they’re bad guys, but people nonetheless). When shot, they leave a bit of a spurt of blood and then the bodies eventually fade away. No options were present to turn the graphics off.
Summary: Elite Forces: Unit 77 is a game of action and strategy in which the player must wisely use the abilities of all four members of Unit 77 as you battle your way through inhospitable jungles, scorching deserts, endure harsh and deadly arctic conditions as you fight to rescue the hostages and defeat the terrorists.
Excerpt: If you go to your local video game store and look over the Nintendo DS section, there are a lot of genres you can expect to find. Role-playing games, puzzle games, simulations, and inane shovelware are abundant on the handheld, but you really need to look if you want to fight a decent shooter.
Conclusion: Most stages are fun because there are a number of ways to go about completing an objective. Frustration did not set in until the notorious “mountain pass” stage, a linear crawl that was one save point short of an enjoyable challenge. Don’t worry, this stage stands alone; most maps are small and varied such that death does not equal frustration. But is Elite Forces frustrating overall ? Yes. No one likes to see an outsider do badly against the establishment.
