Beowulf The Game Review

VideoGamer.com
4 February 2008
  • Excerpt: That's not Angelina's face. Looks nothing like her. That might be her body, and her breasts... maybe. But that's not her face. Either the developers were using a pirated version of the fully CG film as source material or Ms Jolie banned the use of her likeness as well as her voice in the game. Sigh. I was looking forward to that.

Beowulf Review

GameSpot
22 January 2008
  • Excerpt: There were two cool things about the console versions of Beowulf: the singing thanes and the impressive levels of gore. Neither of those can be found in the PSP version, which is pure abomination. And not in a fun, "Yay, let's find it and kill it" sort of way, either. If you see this game coming, make like Monty Python and "Run away, run away, run away!" Beowulf isn't so bad that it ends up being funny--or even interesting.
  • Pros: You kill stuff, it dies
  • Cons: It's easy to get stuck, The combat is brainless, Following the story is a quest in itself, You'll find dead ends in every aspect of the game

  • Conclusion: Beowulf: The Game, for all its considerable flaws, has some unique and fun content. And even though your thanes aren't particularly capable, they're still oddly entertaining. So it's too bad that the fun is so short-lived, and that the game itself is so poorly crafted. After just three hours of Beowulf, you'll get stuck, have no idea what to do, and be ready to send it to sea on a pile of burning sticks.
  • Pros: Your thanes love you, There's plenty of slow-mo bloodletting.
  • Cons: It's easy to get stuck, The combat is brainless, Following the story is a quest in itself, You'll find dead ends in every aspect of the game.

Beowulf Review

IGN
8 November 2007
  • Excerpt: If talk of Beowulf conjures up images of listless poetry lessons at school then think again - the new big screen version of the Anglo-Saxon epic is one of the most exciting and viscerally accomplished films of the year. Using performance-capture technology and crystal clear 3D imagery, director Robert Zemeckis fully immerses the viewer in a mythical world of warriors, monsters and demons, and in doing so makes his best film for more than a decade.

  • Excerpt: У Беовульфа есть два режима существования – героический и яростный. Героизмом протагонист «заражает» и боевых товарищей, делая их сильнее и проворнее. Когда же прославленный воин в ярости (carnal fury), он сам становится крепче и мигом потрошит всех, кого видит. Кстати, боссов можно убивать только в режиме carnal fury.

  • Summary: Развлечение на недельку для жаждущих рвать и метать. Только запаситесь современным одноядерным процессором и валерьянкой.

  • Conclusion: Осенне-зимний анимационный блокбастер – вольный пересказ англо-саксонского эпоса в интерпретации Роберта Земекиса – в полной мере продемонстрировал невозможность устоять перед искушением. Особенно когда в роли искушения выступает Анжелина Джоли. Или, в случае с , кругленькая денежная сумма. Авторы одноименного кросс-платформенного слэшера повторили «путь» мифологического Беовульфа, пав перед жаждой быстрой наживы.

  • Summary: „Die Legende von Beowulf“ ist auf meinem PC legendär gefloppt. Was hatte ich mich darauf gefreut, mich durch das dänische Reich zu metzeln und ein paar schick verpackte Stunden Action-Handwerk vom Feinsten zu erleben. Stattdessen entfessele ich meine Wut nicht nur im Kampf, sondern auch an der Tastatur. Wer so dumme Recken an seiner Seite hat, braucht keine Feinde mehr.
  • Pros: Spiel zum Film, Schöne Grafikeffekte
  • Cons: Dümmliche KI, Nervige Quicktime-Events, Story wird kaum erzählt, Stupides Abmetzeln, Pseudo-Spieltiefe durch Wut/Heldentum, Stellenweise träge Kamera, Performance spielentscheidend
