Excerpt: Giants: Citizen Kabuto is a new game from Interplay and Planet Moon that attempts to blur the line between strategy and action games. While most of the combat resembles a third-person shooter, there are elements of base building and resource management which are vital to your success in the game.
Excerpt: Giants: Citizen Kabuto is bizarre 1st/3rd-action shooter developed by Planet Moon Studios (Created by the team behind MDK and Earthworm Jim) The game combines 3D arcade action, strategy, stunning graphics and a wicked sense of humor to create an entirely original title. Giants: Citizen Kabuto's action is set on the Island, a planetoid careering through space.
Summary: Giants: Citizen Kabuto is an intriguing and magnificent game. Its differences in game style and in the cast of characters are Giants's biggest draw; no wonder it took so long to finish. For beautiful graphics, grand sound, and assorted gameplay, look no further than Giants: Citizen Kabuto.
Excerpt: Take a host of alien creatures on a strange and exotic planet, add a dash of adventure, season with lots of magic, sprinkle lightly with some racing, add every weapon imaginable, roll it all up in a riveting storyline and cook it over lots of blazing action. Serve it hot and top it all off with a few dollops of humour for dessert and you have Giants: Citizen Kabuto . For being wholesome, this is one game that is difficult to beat (Drat!
Conclusion: The action is spread across more than two dozen missions and you’ll control all three races (the Meccs, Sea Reapers and Kabuto) to reach End Game. Each race has their own methods of attack and movements that must be mastered to successfully navigate the various mission objectives. Which, thankfully, the developers have integrated into the game.
Excerpt: Giants: Citizen Kabuto has been one of the more covered games this year. Lots and lots of previews (heck even WE did a preview and we seldom do previews) and lots and lots of press and screenshots make it one of those hyped up games. Hype isn't always what the end product is, so that's why we here at GO like to put forth our opinion and see if they live up to expectations.
Conclusion: However, Giants' replay value is greatly increased with the excellent multiplayer mode, which still makes this game a good buy. Giants multiplayer shows potential in terms of strategies and styles of play that gamers will come up with over time. It gives you all the means to be creative in multiplayer, which is really one of the most fascinating aspects of online gaming. I just wish single player game kept me glued to the screen a bit more...
Pros: Pretty, with a lot of wacky humor, and three unique races. Multiplayer;
Cons: Just not addctive enough in single player. Why? You got me there!
Excerpt: Nicht lange fackeln: Kabutos Stärke ist nicht Geschicklichkeit. Er verlässt sich auf seine Körperkraft und Angst einflößendes Gebrüll. [Quelle: Siehe Bildergalerie] Die Burschen von der Rasse der Meccaryns (= Meccs) müssen feststellen, dass der vermeintlich paradiesische Ort bevölkert ist von aggressiven Kreaturen und schießwütigen Alien-Soldaten.
Excerpt: Cinco criaturas de uma raça semelhante a ingleses bêbados, foram parar à Ilha. Azar! Agora têm de se haver com as Sea Reapers, que, por sinal, têm de se haver com uma criatura de 900 toneladas. E nós temos de nos haver com todos eles! Boa!
