Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand

Game Over Online
2 February 2004
  • Excerpt: It came as a bit of a surprise when Boktai, a Game Boy Advance title with a built-in sunlight detection sensor, was announced. But once it became known who was behind the game, Hideo Kojima, the world made sense once more. You see, Mr.

Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand – Review

GameCritics.com
5 January 2004
  • Excerpt: I can do without a lot of the pseudo-religious preachiness that certain games inflict on the player in the form of hefty non-interactive dialogue. While a game can spout out socially relevant and morally suggestive dialogue all it wants, it's just as easy for gamers to impatiently scroll through the...

  • Summary: That might be the first thing you think when you start playing . And sure, technically the whole solar sensor thing a gimmick, but this one actually works, and even makes the game more intriguing. Basically, the game is a Zelda-type RPG, involving dungeons, puzzles, and monster fighting.

  • Excerpt: Introduction: If you haven't already heard, they're now putting sunlight detectors in videogames. Sunlight, you say? Yes, in Boktai: The Sun is in your Hand, much of the gameplay is fueled by pure, actual, unreplicable sunlight.

  • Excerpt: A lot of people were wondering what Hideo meant when he explained his concept in one word. Everybody thought he meant the word "son" from the game Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. Imagine everybody's surprise when he meant the word "sun.

  • Conclusion: Du är Django, son till en legendarisk vampyrjägare och arvtagare till solpistolen, det ultimata vapnet mot dessa ljusskygga varelser. Konceptet i Boktai är relativt enkelt. Du tar dig från slott eller "grotta" till nästa, bekämpar diverse varelser, tar dig an en boss och upprepar.
  • Pros: Skojigt koncept, välgjort.
  • Cons: Inget större spelmässigt djup.

  • Conclusion: Men Boktai är fortfarande ett bra spel. Grafiken är välpolerad och fyller sin funktion plikttroget. Jag gillar verkligen de spanska influenserna som vilar över spelet. Ett exempel är solpistolen som kallas Gun Del Sol.

  • Conclusion: Voila un très bon jeu que nous offrent Nintendo et Konami. Le système du capteur de soleil est très bien pensé et donne une réelle révolution pour le jeu vidéo. Malgré quelques défauts, vous ne serez pas déçu du résultat.
  • Pros: L'utilisation des rayons du soleil, Quelques phases d'infiltrations, Le côté RPG
  • Cons: La répétition des donjons, La vue en 3D isométrique

Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand

Level 7
23 May 2004
  • Summary: Ett spel som inte lär piratkopieras i samma utsträckning som andra GBA-spel – förmodligen inte alls – är Boktai. Varför då, undrar ni. Läs vidare så ska ni få veta. Solsensor Det Boktai fått mest uppmärksamhet för på förhand är sin solsensor.
  • Pros: Solsensorn - innovativt, Uppgraderingar till pistolen, Den nattliga musiken, Att släpa kistor och samtidigt lösa pussel, Otenko och tutorialen
  • Cons: Måste spela på dagtid, Stereotyp handling, Grafiken, i vissa fall, Musiken, dock bara utomhuslåtarna, Tjatigt koncept trots pusselmomenten
