Bashing On A Budget

GIN
26 November 2007
  • Excerpt: The Chosen: Well of Souls is a budget title. At $20 there's only so much one can expect from a game. A quick glance at the credit's screen shows only a handful of people were involved in this game's creation. Still, it does some things surprisingly well. The Chosen centers on a "powerful sorcerer who became immortal after unraveling the mystery of the ancients. His pride and hunger for power made him eliminate all alchemists whose skills and knowledge equaled his.

The Chosen: Well of Souls Review

  • Excerpt: The story is standard fare. As you’d expect, there are Gods, alchemists, assorted monsters, etc. all vying for their place in the pantheon of The Chosen’s game world. As I said, it’s standard fare, but it’s let down spectacularly by some of the worst voice acting I’ve ever heard. While I understand that professional voice actors are not exactly cheap, a better option in this case would have been to just stick with text.

The Chosen: Well of Souls

  • Excerpt: Polish developer Rebelmind sure seems to have an addiction to Diablo. The developer’s first title, Space Hack, was an interesting and enjoyable take on the classic gameplay style that thanks to its space themes was different enough to work. But for their second title, Rebelmind chose to do a pure Diablo clone set during the turn of the 19th century.

  • Excerpt: Und noch ein Action-Rollenspiel ... Mangel an Titeln dieses Genres herrscht dieses Jahr sicher nicht, dafür eher ein Mangel an Qualität. Nachdem viele Genrevertreter auf breiter Front enttäuschten, versucht es nun Rebelmind mit 'The Chosen'. Mit Erfolg oder doch eher nicht?
  • Pros: interessantes Szenario, Sammelfieber kommt auf, beschwörbare Begleiter
  • Cons: hüftsteife Animationen, kein Multiplayer-Modus, drei fest vorgegebene Charaktere, Probleme bei KI und Wegfindung

  • Summary: "Dìj The Chosen: Well of Souls vás hned ze zaèátku zavede do vesnice uprostøed noci, ve které se to jen hemží ohavnými potvorami všeho druhu. Naštìstí nebudete sami. Vaše postava se postupem hry bude mìnit. Funguje zde tradièní levelování a vylepšování základních atribut pomocí získaných bodù. Jinak se ovšem jedná o klasickou akci se spoustou zombíkù, vlkodlakù a mutantù na každém rohu, s bossy a magií skrytou v léèivých lektvarech...
