Billy Hatcher review

  • Summary: The best way I can think to describe this game is a mix between a 3D Sonic game (yep, THOSE ones) and another Sega title, Super Monkey Ball... ie, rolling something around, collecting things, going round tricky obstacles (here, very unnecessarily tricky). I believe this game had great potential but fallen due to lack of polish or finesse.

It's a fun light-hearted game to play, but don't count on an intense story-line like the ones you'd find in a Final Fantasy type game.

  • Summary: Pour ce qui aime les jeux de plates-formes: Billy Hatcher vous tiendra des heures accroché au paddle. Il s'agit bien d'un titre familial : nul besoin d'éloigner les plus petits devant la violence de l'action, mais ne vous laissez pas berner par le côté enfantin de la chose. Billy Hatcher peut sembler un peu enfantin dans le premier tableau, mais après, les actions et enchaînements sont d'une telle variété et parfois complexité qu'on se rend compte que ce n'est pas un...
  • Pros: L'originalité
  • Cons: graphismes peu soignés .
