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.

  • 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...

The Chosen - Well of Souls (pc)

GBase
25 January 2008
  • Conclusion: <break>Rollenspieler erinnern sich gerne an 1997 zurück: Diablo erschien, wenig später wurde Baldur's Gate angekündigt, und das bisher fast tote Genre schien zurück im Rennen zu sein. Heute sieht das freilich anders aus: Das Rollenspiel freut sich enormer Beliebtheit, die Online-Ableger feiern riesige Erfolge und ständig spriessen neue Diablo-Klone aus dem Boden. So ist auch The Chosen ein pures Hack & Slay nach klassischem Vorbild.
  • Pros: Genügsame Grafik-Engine, Passende, dynamische Musik, Beschwörungen sorgen für Abwechslung, Reservierung von Gegenständen
  • Cons: Nichts Neues, Mit der Zeit monoton, Story nur Nebensache, Kein Multiplayer, Nicht immer passend vertont
