Very fun, but not enough lasting value

N. Durham, Amazon

  • Summary: Namco's light gun shooter Point Blank first gained notoriety on these shores when released on the PS1 way back in the day, and the novelty idea of shooting based mini-games seems like a great platform to make a great DS game. And it does, for a while anyway.

Classic shoot 'em up for the NDS

  • Excerpt: Point Blank for the Nintendo DS is centred around the original arcade game without a light gun, which begs the question "How can you have a first person shooting game without a light gun?
  • Pros: Very simple and ideal for young gamers
  • Cons: Poor sound, gets very repetitive, not suitable for seasoned gamers

A little dissapointing

  • Excerpt: I was so looking forward to playing this game on the DS, as I know it from old and couldn't wait for this new way to play - I must say that on some levels it did not dissapoint, frantically stabbing my stylus at the screen over and over again to hit the targets was just as much fun as I thought it...
  • Pros: Great fun; Let some anger out
  • Cons: Over too quickly; Needs more substance

Point Blank - Hit or Miss?

  • Summary: I bought this game because I remembered playing the original arcade version years ago! Although the DS version doesn't quite compare to the original it is a good attempt and makes great use of the stylus.

  • Excerpt: First off, I don't know why Point Blank has been posted in the Puzzle and Platforming DS game section section, because it is quite clearly a Shoot 'em up. Sometimes, I just don't get this site.... Ah well, now that's done with, on to the review!
  • Pros: Like the Point Blank of old, Fun Single Cart Multiplayer
  • Cons: Not enough minigames

  • Excerpt: If you've ever been to an Arcade, chances are, you've seen a Point Blank machine. If you ask me, an arcade just isn't an arcade if it doesn't have a Point Blank game. It's a necessary part of an Arcade players staple diet, along with Time Crisis and House of the Dead.
  • Pros: Like the Point Blank of old, Fun, Great multiplayer
  • Cons: Not enough minigames, Some pointless Game Modes, No wifi

  • Summary: Tout juste la moyenne. Si la réalisation était correcte à l'époque sur la borne d'arcade, force est de constater que Namco ne s'est pas trop fatigué sur cette conversion. Bien que le stylet s'y prête bien, il facilite trop le tir.
