Breakout

Game Vortex
10 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Breakout is, graphically, decidedly simple. The environments are generally bright and colorful, but they don’t have much detail. The playing field, understandably, can’t have a lot of graphical clutter, but even the edges feel a little devoid of feeling. It’s not terrible, but the game feels a little, well, empty . Admittedly, there’s only so much you can do with anthropomorphized paddles and boulders and whatnot, but it still fails to impress.

Breakout

Game Over Online
16 September 2007
  • Excerpt: When Hasbro Interactive and Atari remade Pong, you knew Breakout couldn't be far behind it. Originally designed to act as a single player sequel of sorts, Breakout was just as simple and addictive, not to mention popular, as Pong. Fast-forward twenty-plus years and Breakout makes its 3D debut in this completely redesigned edition of the arcade classic. Blast your way through bricks, barriers and barricades in this… love story?

Expert Review

GameSpot
2 June 1999
  • Summary: It's an adage that add-ons can be tougher than the original game. That adage applies in spades to the Railroad Tycoon II expansion pack, The Second Century. For fans of Railroad Tycoon II who may have exhausted the original scenarios and campaigns, The Second Century adds some hefty new challenges. The Second Century consists of 18 new scenarios, including five new campaigns.
  • Pros: N/A

GAME REVIEW – Edna & Harvey: The Breakout (PC)

Alternative Magazine Online
17 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Still, I truly enjoyed Edna & Harvey despite its faults. Whereas some may find the graphics slightly rough around the edges – as well as the overall experience – I thought this all added to its charm. The characters of Edna and Harvey always made me smile and spending so much time with them was a blast. Buy this for the epic escape itself, not the relatively disappointing ending. This is a fun, quirky adventure game, even with its annoyances taken into account.

Ein Klassiker ist auferstanden

PCgames.
7 January 2008
  • Excerpt: RITTERLICH Die gepanzerten Krieger geben erst nach mehreren Treffern den Geist auf. [Quelle: ] Strichmännchen Bouncer, der Held des Spiels, muss eine Vielzahl von Abschnitten heil überstehen und seine Freunde den Klauen des Fieslings Batnix entreißen. Die allermeisten Levels laufen nach klassischer Breakout-Manier ab: Sie steuern den Helden am unteren Bildrand nach links und rechts und zerstören mit Hilfe einer hin- und herspringenden Kugel verschiedene Objekte am...

Test : DuckTales Remastered

GameHope
27 October 2007
  • Summary: Picsou. Ouh. Ou… Mince, Joker a déjà utilisé le générique de La Bande à Picsou pour faire l’intro de la preview de DuckTales Remastered. Il ne reste plus qu’à dire que le jeu est un remake du DuckTales : La Bande à Picsou sorti jadis sur la bonne vieille NES. Cette fois, c’est Way Forward qui s’y colle pour Capcom. Avec des bons jeux dans son escarcelle (comme Mighty Switch Force) et un matériau original aussi vénéré, le studio ne peut que livrer un bon jeu.
  • Pros: De la plate-forme old-school avec des vies (très) limitées, Une difficulté bien dosée, Des réorchestrations des musiques originales réussies, Des niveaux bien pensés, Quelques ajouts sympas, Une refonte visuelle complète...
  • Cons: ...mais le mélange 2D/3D laisse perplexe, Le niveau final ne sait pas quand il faut s'arrêter, L'inertie du saut de base, Le jeu plante souvent, Une petite routine s'installe, Trop de dialogues (et pas en français), Un peu court pour 15 euros

Empires - Die Neuzeit

Looki.de
2 December 2003
  • Conclusion: Mit Empires – Die Neuzeit gelang den Entwicklern der Stainless Steel Studios ein weiterer guter Wurf im Echtzeitstrategie – Genre. Doch wirklich neues gibt es nicht, anscheinend hat man sich lieber bei bekannten Konkurrenten der Ideen bedient als selber ein paar Neuerungen zu entwickeln. Doch alles in allem setzten die Stainless Steel Studios die Features gut um, was zu einem gutem Spielspaß führt.

Breakout

AG
29 September 2000
  • Summary: Удачный римейк вышел, жаль, коротковат. Но если за вашим компьютером обитаете не только вы, но и жители Земли (до)школьного возраста, то им игра понравится гораздо больше, и проходить ее они будут дольше. Мультиплеерный (и веселый!!! Аплодисментов заслуживает хотя бы уровень с загоняемыми на насесты курицами!) режим игры за одним компьютером наверняка поможет занять время всей вашей компании, пока на кухне заваривается чаек.
