  • Conclusion: Very polished and very enjoyable. However the combat needs to be more involving. The unit creation/animal combinations are truly endless and engrossing but a more satisfying combat system needs to be in place so we can witness our creations in battle in a more detailed way.

  • Excerpt: A real-time strategy title that taps into genetics and enables you to combine different animal DNA strains into fearsome battle units - that's the pitch that Relic Entertainment, the progenitors behind Homeworld, are trying to bring to the real time strategy genre through Impossible Creatures. By default, you don't start off with any combat units. You have to make them. If that sounds interesting, it certainly is.

  • Excerpt: Not too long ago I started getting fascinated with the old classical movies. Matinees are often very different from today’s special effects showcases. As we can see in movies like Bride of Frankenstein and The Mummy (the one from 1932), they had “special effects” back then as well, but they definitely invented some outrageously weird monsters.

  • Summary: Relic Entertainment, the developer of Impossible Creatures, earned widespread recognition in 1999 with the release of its first product, the sci-fi-themed real-time strategy game Homeworld. Homeworld was unlike any other game in the genre before it, due to its effective, stylish use of a fully 3D perspective.
  • Pros: N/A

Strategic opus or clichéd rehash?

  • Conclusion: Impossible Creatures may not be the second coming of strategy, but it's a good game. It may not be a revolution, but it's definitely fun. It isn't perfect, but what is? Don't expect it to change your life, do your washing or cook your meals, and you'll get along just fine.

Test : Impossible Creatures

GameHope
12 October 2014
  • Summary: Il y a des matins comme ça, où les développeurs ne devraient pas se lever. Il y a deux ans la mode était au FPS. Les petits gars de Relic Canada semblaient alors bien contents puisqu'aucune concurrence à leur STR n'aparaissait à l'horizon. Que de rêves et d'hallu totale, car depuis mi-2002, on croule sous une déferlante de jeux de STR en tous genres. Face à Warcraft 3, AOM et C&C Generals, Impossible Creatures voit son avenir s'assombrir.
  • Pros: Un équilibre quasi-parfait parmi les 52 unités et leur déscendance, Des unités très bien modélisées, L'idée du Panel de 9 créatures
  • Cons: Un mode solo bien maigre, On est parfois dépassé par les créations adverses

  • Summary: Am Anfang macht "Impossible Creatures" dank des Experimentierens mit den Kreaturen unglaublich viel Spaß. Aber sobald man dann einige brauchbare Einheiten gefunden hat, entwickelt sich das Spiel zu einem recht gewöhnlichen und gradlinigen Echtzeit-Strategiespiel ohne spielerische Innovation. Sicherlich, die Story des Spiels ist genauso gut wie abgedreht, aber spätestens nach der Hälfte der Kampagne geht einem so langsam die Motivation aus, weiterzumachen.

  • Excerpt: Har du en lille gal videnskabsmand i maven? Altså ikke en af dem der vil sprænge månen i luften eller tvinge alle mænd på jorden til at gå med paryk, men en rigtig gal en af slagsen… en af dem, der vil lege gud og genmanipulere alt fra sojabønner til små uskyldige dyr? Så er Impossible Creatures stedet, hvor du kan lade din indre videnskabsmand gå amok.

  • Excerpt: Eric kommer seg ut, og der venter farens gamle venn, som forteller ham at han har tatt faren til fange og overtatt hans laboratorium, der faren har kommet fram til hvordan man krysser forskjellige dyrs DNA, så de blir enestående, grufulle blandinger. Professorens "venn" har produsert massevis av disse monstrene, og vil nå overta alle øyene i nærheten og senere overta hele jorda.
