Lock’s Quest (DS) Review

Vooks
25 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Locks Quest is a fantastically inventive game that mixes the construction modes of Ramparts and Desktop Tower Defence with real-time strategy, and a little role playing, to create one of the Nintendo DSs most compelling games. It looks and sounds great, has plenty of content and a genuine sense of originality and fun, making it stand out in the overcrowded DS market.

Lock's Quest

Video Game Generation
13 October 2008
  • Summary: Lock’s Quest is an admirable entry into the DS's RPG/RTS repertoire. It can take roughly 20 hours to fully complete, though it is a bit difficult at times, so it can actually take a lot longer than that. It's a fantastic RPG effort from 5th Cell, and if you only previously knew them for Drawn to Life , Lock's Quest is the title that signifies you should be paying close attention to future releases - this is the stuff that sequels are made of.
  • Pros: Intricate RTS-styled gameplay, Detailed sprites and character portraits, Engaging storyline drives away any boredom, Orchestral soundtrack rivals that of RPG greats
  • Cons: 20 hours is a tad short for a DS RPG, Enemy sprites are a bit too similar, Sliding to move Lock is a bit awkward

Lock's Quest

Digital Chumps

  • Conclusion: Lock's Quest was one of the best games shown at E3 2008, surprising many gamers with one of the best looking original games on the DS since its release. And, despite a few control issues here or there, it most certainly succeeds in living up to the hype. I loved every minute of the game and am only saddened that the experience is already over. Hopefully a sequel is in the making because this game deserves to have more installments in the series. Recommended.

Lock’s Quest

  • Excerpt: Nogle spil er dømt til at blive overset. De har en ukendt og generisk titel, en ukendt udvikler og et minimalt markedsføringsbudget – udviklernes eneste håb for succes er, at de højere kræfter spiller ind og åbner folks øjne for deres spil. En bedre fremgangsmåde, kunne også være at give spillet til de anmeldere, som jubler, når de får kvalitet imellem hænderne – uanset hvem der så har lavet det.

Test: Lock's Quest - Hüter der Welt

nintendo front
15 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Im Großen und Ganzen wurde mit Lock’s Quest ein großartiger Strategietitel für den Nintendo DS auf den Markt gebracht. Die wunderschöne Grafik harmoniert perfekt mit dem gut abgestimmten Sound. Auch spielerisch darf man sich auf eine sehr gute Story und packende Kämpfe gegen die Zeit freuen um die Uhrwerker abzuwehren und die unterschiedlichsten Orte zu schützen. Dieser Titel sollte in einer gutsortierten DS-Spielesammlung keinesfalls fehlen.
  • Pros: leichte Steuerung, eine gute Hintergrundstory, toller Sound
  • Cons: die Kampfphasen sind oftmals etwas langatmig, Kameraführung kann auf einigen Maps problematisch werden
