Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death

Hooked Gamers
29 October 2013
  • Conclusion: Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is an action packed, brain-dead, budget thriller and if you are looking for a cheap release for all that repressed adrenaline, you will definitely be able to find worse things to do with your money. If, however, you are looking for a challenge to your intellect or a test of your skills, look elsewhere. The only thing Marlow Briggs will challenge is your patience.

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death Review

GameSpot
24 September 2013
  • Excerpt: His name is Marlow Briggs. The game named after him is a whole lot like God of War, but this brash action hero is no Kratos. He is, in fact, a walking and talking cliche, shouting out "Feel the burn" when he summons fire from the heavens, and "Trust me…it's going to be a bloodbath" as he wades into danger. Marlow Briggs--the game, not its star--is keenly aware of its unoriginality, poking fun at video game tropes and its own hackneyed tribalism.
  • Pros: Fun, self-deprecating sense of humor, Excellent pacing keeps you constantly entertained, Beautiful and dramatic set piece levels, Smooth action lights up the screen with violent fireworks
  • Cons: A number of unrefined elements make for awkward moments, Exploitable finishing move

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death Review (XBLA, PC)

TheSixthAxis
7 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is a God of War clone , but while it wears its influences on its sleeve, it has a lot of surprises in store. The first of which is that it is a competent spectacle fighter and packs a lot of character despite its budget origins.
  • Pros: Smooth, fluid combat., Huge, explosive action sequences., Surprisingly good looking., Well written dialogue.
  • Cons: Platforming is often stiff and awkward., Weapons don’t feel too different from each other., Storyline is uninspired., Some camera troubles and nasty bugs.

Game Review: Marlow Briggs And The Mask Of Death [Xbox 360/PC]

push-start.co.uk
5 October 2013
  • Excerpt: With a plot as paper-thin as that you may expect the dialogue and gameplay to be just as weak, but you’d be wrong. The one-liners, though often cheesy, are snappy and humorous, but never forced. The chemistry between Briggs and the mask is largely where the humour lies as they bounce off one another; Marlow frequently ridicules his own video game and the mask taunts you as you fall to your death after a poorly timed jump.
  • Pros: - Solid gameplay
  • Cons: - Inconsistant graphics

  • Conclusion: Marlow Briggs, à défaut d'être parfait au niveau technique, est efficace dans sa catégorie (poids lourd si on se fie au héros). La durée de vie est acceptable : comptez une bonne dizaine d'heures de jeu pour finir l'histoire. Le côté fun du jeu et le fait qu'il ne se prenne pas trop au sérieux en font une bonne distraction pour les amateurs de beat'em all.
  • Pros: Une action qui ne connaît pas de répit , Des phases de jeu diversifiées , Un prix plus qu'acceptable pour le contenu
  • Cons: Quelques bugs irritants , Une absence de challenge , Un aspect technique perfectible

  • Summary: Games zijn soms net films. Je hebt de grote blockbusters met vaak prachtige en tevens zeer prijzige beelden/speciale effecten. Er zijn de kleine indie-releases die unieke dingen doen met een klein budget. De derde en tevens laatste groep bestaat uit B-films die eigenlijk erg matig zijn, maar dan wel op een manier die vermakelijk kan zijn.
  • Pros: Neemt zichzelf niet serieus, Brute combat, Moordend tempo, Stijlvol
  • Cons: Doet niets nieuws of speciaals

PC Action
13 October 2013
  • Pros: Temporeicher Mix aus Haudrauf-Action, Klettern und Rätseln, Vier Waffen, vier Zauber und jede Menge Combos sorgen für kernige, durchgehend spaßige Kämpfe, Beeindruckende Bossgegner, Sehenswerte Landschaften, Geschichte und Figuren nehmen sich selbst nicht ernst; hoher Trash-Faktor, viel Humor, Abwechslung durch Minispiele, Minispiele lassen sich jederzeit wiederholen, um Highscore-Gelüste zu befriedigen., Für den Preis ordentlicher Umfang, Freies Speichern (PC)
  • Cons: Buttonmashing führt meist zum Erfolg, Taktik ist selten gefragt., Zu wenige Feindtypen, Anspruchslose Knobeleien, Überflüssiges Upgrade-System ohne Wahlmöglichkeiten, Kaum eigene Gameplay-Ideen, Tastatursteuerung sorgt beim Klettern für Probleme (PC)., Spielerisch öde Ballersequenzen, Keine deutsche Sprachausgabe

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death

  • Summary: Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death – игра, вопреки всему, довольно увлекательная и в своем роде интересная. Выискивать в ней отсылки к тем или иным культурным явлениям жанра, определять, над чем же смеются авторы в данный момент и откуда что заимствуют - как минимум забавно. Но учтите, развлечение это вас надолго не займет. И уже спустя неделю из памяти выветрится практически всё, что пыталась оставить в ней игра.
